Change tire on lawn tractor

I bought a Cub Cadet LTX1040 5/18/13. I have a flat on one of my front tires. I am looking for instructions on how to change a flat on this machine-there are none in the manual.

Hi Txdu, welcome to the community and we are glad you joined. Good question as the manual on our website is an older one.


I reached out to Cub Cadet technical folks who gave me the breakdown of the assembly.


Inside the wheel is a push cap, you need to pull or pry that off. Then you should see a cotter pin, behind the push cap. Straighten the bent leg on the cotter pin so it slides out. Then you should be able to slide the wheel off the axle.  A washer and wheel bearing should come off with the wheel.


The tire is tubeless; you will have to take it to a see if it can be repaired with a plug.


Please post any other questions you may have about your cub cadet. Hope this answered your question.
