I like the 1500s better:smiles: This look kind of like the JD Ls hood?

Yup, figured that would be the complaint. One of the complaints about the L is the open hood design. Most want the engine compartment completely closed.

Cub 1000 series

That is the worst looking Cub Cadet I have seen in my life. Thanks for the pictures

Thanks for the replys so far. Keep in mind that this is a prototype and may be different from the actual production. However it will be close to the picture. Cub is banking on the price to sell them. 18hp Briggs 42" mower with Timken bearings, cast iron front axle, hydrostatic drive and electric PTO for $1599.00. Boy that's a mouthfull.

Argee, There's no articles out yet. The mowers have not been manufactured yet and a lot of dealers still may not have even seen the pictures like the ones here on TractorForum.com. As soon more info is available, I'll share it with you. Thanks for everyone's input. Personally, veiwing the mower in person, I liked the way it looked but my brother didn't like it , kinda like some of you guys.

Hey Amicks, I agree the 1000 series kind of looks like the L-series. I was at Gardenweb site and they were talking about the CC website and the website referenced the new models but you cannot see the referenced webpage or pictures yet.

Well the first quiet night in a week and a half and I finally did some searching and this is a recent ad for the 1000 series Cub Cadet. I am hoping the attachment will post.

It worked fine. I already had Adobe and it automatically opened it.

I wonder if the hoods for all brands come from the same designer. Not unlike cars, if you took the name off and painted them the same color, it would be hard to tell them apart without a real close look.

I would guess the mold is cheaper if you buy from your competition. I agree that it really is not very much much to look at. I glad the post opens with no problem. I can just imagine the post when they get going over at Spikeland. I guess when they see it really good the bashers are going to have a field day with the less expensive Cub Cadet. I know after all the bashing the L-series took and the bashers at gardenweb are not even finished yet with it over there. I found another picture on it and I will add it as a attachment.

Michael, The first picture you showed is of the old models which have been discontinued. The second picture is mine, probably someone took it from here.

Sorry Amicks I made a mistake, I was trying to upload a picture aof the nose of the hood and I accidently got your picture. BTW does the new 1000 series have a cast iron deck or something like the MTD's?
I try once again to load the nose.

I like the idea of a one piece hood. My old tractor has a hood and two side panels that need a wrench to remove and gain access. Sometimes that is a pain in the butt. As to the Cub being ugly, no more so than all the other "jelly bean" design tractors. I like the old styling of the Ingersoll and tractors of the '70s and older.

I do like the one piece hoods they are easier to remove and lighter if for some reason you have to take it off. I just wish the various companies would try something different to make each brand different then the jelly bean look, after all aero is not something to worry about on a lawn tractor. I wish one of the companies would do something different like Dodge did on the 1995 when they bought out the new Ram. I could just see it. A Dodge Ram clone hood on and nose on a lawn tractor.:party:
