I had a Cub Cadet 1525 in lawaway at TSC for $1600. Some of you might remember this as the one with 110 hours on the clock that was supposedly left with the key in the "on" position to accumulate hours.

I just got back from Lowes. They had 2 1525's...1 that has been on the floor since Oct. for $1399, and another that was unboxed just a week and a half ago. for $1509. Even though they both have zero hours, I wondered how many kids have played with the controls, etc.. so I opted for the $1509 one. It will be delivered Friday! :drinkin: birthdaywi :cheers:

I did away with the lawaway at TSC, and used the money down to get a 10 cu. foot dump cart and a front bumber for the CC1525.

Sorry for takin' up board space with a silly post, but Im excited! No more push mowing 1.2 acres!

Drinks are on me...

Congratulations

Nice move Greg! Nothing beats a tractor over a push mover. Especially when mowing over an acre. I hope it runs forever or at least till you decide to trade up. :D :D :D :D

Greg, congratulations on the new tractor! Always seems like the toughest part is the shopping around for price and the options on it and that come with it. Not a silly post at all! This is EXACTLY what Tractor Forum is all about. Be sure to post some pics, and give us your observations and feedback after you make the first cut with it. :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone. I was beginning to think I was out of luck, but it ended up working out great. I didn't get my Lowes 10% off coupon in time, but I'm not gonna complain.

Come on Friday! It still looks like it will be awhile before I cut the grass, but the tractor and cart will be put to use before the grass starts growing. :)

Congrats Greg! I'm pretty sure you'll spend a lot of time with your new baby before you take it on its maiden voyage. I imagine a couple of trips up and down the drive are in store. Enjoy the moment, it's a great feeling.

Yea Jody- that is be-yooti-full! lol Here s the kind of luck I have. I applied for the Lowes "new mover 10% off" coupon awhile back. I had about given up on it. Well, this morning while checking my e-mail, guess what was there? Yes, you guessed it- my Lowes 10% coupon.

I called them and explained what was up, and he said bring the reciept for the tractor in, along with the coupon and they would honor it. That makes the tractor $1358 rather than $1509 (before tax of course). Im an even happier camper now!

Anyone with a CC 1525, please post pics if ya have any. Im getting tired of looking at the same pic in the brochure.

Thanks,
Greg

Well, after an interesting day, the 1525 is home. My Friday was intersting starting at 6:15...couldn't sleep, decided to stay up. To be brief, Friday consisted of a flat tire on our van, telling my boys that their dog is missing, Lowes not having my name on file for any delivery, and I was supposed to go in to work as early as possible.

The Lowes truck appeared as I was changing a tire, then it was off to work. Once I got home, I went straight to the garage to clean up the tractor a bit, read up on some info, and enjoy a cold liquid libation...or two.

I ended up greasing everything just to make sure, and everything took a pretty good amount of grease except for the zerk on the left front axle. I started it up and let it run for a couple minutes. It now has .3 hours on it. :)

Anyway, I have a question for anyone familiar with the 1500 series; Where is the zerk fitting for the steering column? I seem to remember reading somewhere that it was underneath the battery and hard to get to. I do not see one anywhere, and just want to make sure. Am I possibly thinking of the 1000 series?

Thanks for any help,
Greg

Does anyone know where the steering zerk is?

Anyway, I got to drive it around a bit today, and even had my better half running it around the driveway. I got to looking, and it seemed the front wheels were almost pointed outward. The manual suggests total toe-in at between 1/16" and 5/16". Rather than measuring from the inside lip of the front wheels, I measured from centerline to centerline...the wheels WERE pointed outwards, and had almost 1/4" toe-OUT!

It took about 1/2 hour, but now has almost 1/4" toe in, which is within guidelines. The steering wheel is straight too.

I like it alot, and I'm looking forward to putting it to the test this Summer!

Greg
