Maximum strength and power for the toughest tasks.
Heavy-duty construction, professional-grade engines, plus ultra-tough components like Cub Cadet's legendary direct shaft drive make the XT3 the ultimate garden tractor. It has the proven strength to cut through tall, thick grass, haul the big loads and power hard-working, ground-engaging attachments.
THE POWER AND RELIABILITY OF SHAFT DRIVE
Only the XT3 has an automotive-style direct shaft drive. That means no belts to the drive system to slip or break - just maximum power delivery and durability even when cutting through tall grass or using attachments. Matched with a cast-iron transmission and front axle, the XT3 provides reliable Cub Cadet performance.
Every Cub Cadet XT3 tractor comes standard with professional-grade Kohler V-Twin engines for exceptional power, strength and smooth operation. And with an automatic transmission and standard cruise control, you've got the control and power to take on the big jobs.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE CUTTING DECKS
Extra-tough stamped and fabricated cutting decks plus an advanced cutting system built with rugged components ensure unbeatable durability, breakthrough bagging performance, and of course, the beautiful Cub Cadet Signature Cut. Decks sold separately.
VERSATILITY OF ALL-SEASON ATTACHMENTS
Cub Cadet's strength comes from many different places. One of which is our ability to engineer our products for year-round versatility. Through the use of seasonal attachments your equipment can gear up for any weather. So no matter the season, get the most of our your investment.
