Got email back from Cub this a.m. about trannys. They said 1000 series are from Hydro-Gear in Il. The 2000 series are either made in house or from HG as well. Also, the 2000 series is coming with the 2500 tranny, but she did not know if it was just the GT 2186 only.

Some color changes on frame to black. No literature yet. Dealer said next week. Anyone have updated info?

Take care, Fred

Mike,

OOOps, got it, thanks. Was mainly passing on info about who makes their transmissions. I did not know some are made in house. Now I still don't know which unit has what!

Take care, Fred

Oh that is ok. I look around and am all over the forums here and read a lot and I like to keep up with whats going on. Thats the good thing about this site is you can quickly find the info without wading thru the pop-ups and bashes as Gardenweb has. I see your goodbye note in GW has reached 101 postings and is finally closed but today when I was over there the Cheerios popup came on in your thread and I got a firewall and popup guard that did not stop it even on your thread.:dazed: :furious:

Mike, what a zoo. Not even curious anymore. GW has 25 nuts, 25 bashers, and about 500 lurkers. Zero help.

Johndeere, yep 26. Complain about pop ups and get bashed, I see you stay on topic.

Jody, does not surprise me. I cancelled my I.D. and have no intention of checking in. They say I started this one? Watch this one go to 100 posts as well. Those guys have little to contribute, but love nonsense.

Anyway, hoping on new Cub info here or from dealer. No new models as of yet. Looking at Gt2186 or 2500series or WH315-8, and maybe Conquest.

Probably sell one old JD100. Take care, Fred

Great site, glad I found it. Looking for info myself. Dealer trip yesterday netted a spec sheet on 2500 series. They include LT2138, LT2042, GT2544, GT2550, and GT2554.

In sum, all have Kohlers, 11 gauge frames, cruise, and smart jet deck wash. Top four models have cast iron tranny housing and revtek. Deck gauge in order goes 13, 13, 11, 12, 11.

No literature or models in yet, he said soon. Oh well. Mike

Sorry,been sick and im catching up on forum.

The belt drive Hydrogear trans (which MTD has some ownerhip of ) in 1000 series is a unitized design that has the pump,final drive gear and differential in a compact unit that is sealed and requires no maintenance.

The 2000 series (also 3000,5000, and 7000) have rear final gear trains (important word here is GEAR) made by mTD gear division ,a separate wholly owned company, whether cast aluminum or cast iron have a shaft driven HydroGear pump bolted to the gear set. It has a 6+ qt. trans fluid capacity and external filter.

Other than the marketing buzz of "cast iron transmission" housing, the main benefit is the added weight so you dont have to resort to wheel weights for tilling,dozing etc. Guts are identical.
3000 series are even larger gear housing and components,5000 and 7000 series transmissions are simply awesome when you consider very few manufacturers make their own drivetrains.

btw.we have never,never had to go into any of these transmissions with the exception of a guy who towed his 3000 series without throwing the dump valve.

It was about this time last year that I was looking for new info on Cubs. I went to a dealer, and he had a 1000 series, but no info whatsoever. Cubs website was also down for awhile. Although I was anxious, I was probably the only moron out lookin at tractors with snow on the ground. LOL

By the time I decided on (and found) a 1500 series, the brochures were finally available for the new 1000 series. I guess good things come to those who wait...but I hate to wait for anything. I seem to live by the "Lord give me payience, but I want it right now" rule.

What's with the empty 1500 series link on Cubs website? Is it a website developer's snafu or are they teasing us again?
