Cub Cadet&rsquo;s 9 new for 2009&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.grit.com/tools/cub-cadet-announces-new-1000-series-lawn-tractors.aspx”>1000-series lawn tractors</a>&nbsp;just got a lot more interesting with the addition of a new mowing deck.&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.cubcadet.com/” target=”_blank”>Cub Cadet</a>&nbsp;turned to the aerospace industry when looking for an improved cut and what they wound up with is a new mower deck that uses completely reengineered smooth-arc cutting blades that improve air flow and therefore cut quality. All of that results in better-groomed lawn with no sacrifice in mowing speed or operator comfort.</p>
<p>According to corporate information, the innovative cutting system leaves virtually no grass uncut, even in the tallest, thickest stands.&nbsp; All relevant components including the deep-deck design, overlapping blades and large discharge chute work together to deliver a top-notch cut.&nbsp; And the new blades are stronger and more rigid, which keeps them from flexing under heavy loads caused by high-speed mowing and/or heavy stands of grass. When you put it all together, the new deck creates a powerful vacuum that lifts the grass for uniform cutting and then literally shoots the clippings out and disperses them evenly across the lawn. No more clumps or mini-windrows.</p>
