The Cub Cadet LT1 NS96 is a 96cm/38", twin-bladed side discharge garden tractor powered by a 420cc Cub Cadet engine. The lawn tractor features a transmatic transmission which allows smooth 'change on the move' acceleration from neutral to a selectable top speed.  Simply depress the foot pedal for efficient and safe operation in confined areas.

The extremely tight turning circle of 46cm/18" is considerably smaller than most tractors in its class, making it the ideal machine for mowing around obstacles such as trees.  Another important feature is the step-through chassis design, allowing very safe, easy mounting and dismounting.

The Cub Cadet LT1 NS96 side discharge garden tractor is ideal for gardeners that have a variety of grass conditions to contend with or require a higher work rate than a collecting garden tractor.  Used as a side discharge machine it can handle anything up to small paddocks but is also capable (especially when fitted with the optional mulch plug) of leaving a very tidy finish on a good lawn.

The Cub Cadet LT1 NS96 is suitable for gardeners with a garden size of one acre and above, but requiring the performance and refinement that these high quality tractors offer as standard.

An optional mulch kit and grass catcher are available for use with this garden tractor and it may need optional high lift blades for wet grass (see related items below).

Cutting Height Adjustment

Five position height adjustment to easily change the cutting height.

Narrow Turning Radius

Cub Cadet LT1 Force Series lawn tractors have a tight turning radius of only 46cm / 18" for remarkable manoeuvrability.

Steel Front Axle

The pivoting steel front axle keeps all four wheels on the ground on uneven ground.

Steel Frame

All tractor frames are made of fully welded and powder coated rugged steel.

Step-Through Frame

The sturdy step-through frame allows the user to mount and dismount the tractor with ease.

Adjustable Seat

Seat adjusts for more convenience and comfort.

Comfort Steering Wheel

A nice three-spoke soft grip steering wheel is standard on all Cub Cadet lawn tractors.

Pivoting One-Piece Hood

The entire bonnet can be removed within seconds, without the need for tools, for easy maintenance.



The Cub Cadet LT1 NS96 lawn tractor is equipped with a powerful Cub Cadet 420cc engine which delivers ample power even in the toughest conditions.


Transmatic Transmission

Transmatic transmission allows smooth 'change on the move' acceleration from neutral to a selectable top speed.


Cutting Deck

Twin-bladed offset deck with cleaning nozzles is designed to fit standard hose fittings, enabling the deck to be kept clean and in tip-top working order.  The deck also features two anti-scalp wheels making it perfect for undulating areas.


Side Discharge

The side discharge deck is ideal for informal areas of grass but, when used with the optional mulch plug, is quite at home in more formal areas.


Anti-Scalping Deck Wheels

Deck wheels prevent damage to the lawn.


Mulch kit, bumper, dozer blade and twin-bag collector are available, making this a very versatile machine.
