Stay away from cub cadet utv's

Recommended Posts

i bought  a new cub cadet cchallenger 750  in 2018 has less than 800 miles on it. 4 clutches.this last clutch was 1200 dollars. thier new heavy duty 2 complete engine overhauls  and a new head/ cub cadet blames the owner. will not honor thier warrenties. and blames the owner. i do not abuse it.  it is garage kept. so far ihave almost 20 grand invested inc;luding the purchase price. could of bought a polaris for less. as you can tell i am not happy. thier parts  they sell are junk. had to buy a new head because they dont sell the head cover seperatly.compression release went thru the top of the cover while idleing be warned. they are junk.

yup it is rivited on the cam. and since you cant buy the head cover you have to buy a new head. for over 500 bucks. plus a new cam plus have the engine torn down to see if there is anything inside the bottom of it so 1500 dollars later   lol junk

      Thought I’d post this in the general forum to try and get some more ideas. 
      2008 Joyner Renegade
      800cc EFI Chery engine
      Starts and idles fine, drives well until you actually try to go, then starts to sputter as if it’s starving for fuel. Does this no matter what fuel pressure I set it too. I’ve tried 35-80psi 
      New fuel pump
      New fuel filter
      Cleaned injectors
      New thermostat
      Fresh Fuel
      Any smarty smarts out there with ideas?

      Our 2017 Textron Stampede 900 died when driving it (after making a terrible noise).  Now it won’t start. Checked oil and there wasn’t any.  Was given advice that the engine would need to be replaced. Trying to find a used or rebuilt one.  Any recommendations or leads on how I can find one?

      So I picked up this Renegade for $4500. Seemed to run awesome. Got it home and was doing some laps with my son when I noticed it was losing power and sputtering at 2,000 rpm's. Almost like its hitting the rev limiter (I know its not, but for sake of diagnosing that's what it sounds like)  Stopped driving, came back after it had been sitting for awhile, and it ran awesome again. Issue pops up after driving for 5mins or so and engine is up to temp. Machine has 1,100 miles on it
      Looks like the old owner may have been chasing this issue as well. 
      -New spark plugs
      -New thermostat
      -New Fuel Pump
      -New Fuel Filter
      -Temp sensor.... Not sure what else... 

      Any advice for chasing this down........?

      First post here, some great info on this forum!
       Is anybody running a Cub Cadet Challenger 550 with snowplow? I am looking to get something with cab and heater and this has caught my eye. I am curious if the 550 will have enough power. Thanks in advance!
