Hydrostatic drive transmissions are filled with fluid and require the operation of a gear driven pump to move the fluid which then in turn drives the wheels. These systems should normally be in the engaged or operation mode when the mower is to be driven.
Things You`ll Need
Your Cub Cadet LT1045 comes with two belts that, over time, will need to be replaced as their rubber ages.
The PTO (or power take-off) belt is part of a pulley system that operates the blades on your riding lawn mower. It runs off the electric clutch system in your engine.
Since you`ll likely only replace your serpentine belt once during the life of your car, it`s generally recommended to take your car to a professional mechanic. You can do a lot of damage to your vehicle if you drive on the road with an improperly installed serpentine belt.
Yes, with a few tools. Use a long-handled socket wrench to loosen the tensioner. This will allow you to remove the old belt. Wind the new belt correctly through each of the parts that run on the serpentine belt.
Hydrostatic. Hydrostatic transmission helps provide smooth operation, no shifting, just push the pedal and go.

My mower blades disengage when operating.
Not sure of your question, but if you mean, they start when you flip the switch and then disengage but the switch stays up.. you need to check two things. (1) The out put of your alternator, read the battery with a volt meter before you start it, then start up the engine and read the voltage again should be a higher reading with the engine running. 12.4 vdc with the engine off – 13.7 vdc with it running. (just an example). Next will be your seat switch.There is a switch under the seat if you are not sitting in the seat the blades should turn off. so the switch could be out of its socket, or broken.

Cub cadet gtx 1054 height adjustment cable keeps coming off pulley on left side replaced pulley several times
Its the cable, not being tight enough.. I had the same issue…maybe its stretched.
I have a cub cadet LT1042 and it is 3 years old…we have replaced the pto 2 times and replaced the belt 7 times what is the deal
You have to have something rubbing under there that isn’t supposed to be, crawl under the tractor and watch the belt go around by hand, if you can turn it. Maybe see what is frozen up, in the wrong place, Gotta be a belt guide is rubbing or a pulley is not spinning. The PTO should last 20 years, all i can think is they got it too tight to start, .010″ min, that is tight, and you must be in Florida picking up a lot of sand? If it was under any kind of warranty, I would raise a big stink about it. Those PTO’s are not cheap. And the belt has got to be $20. I wouldn’t go to a dealer for the belt, unless it is really special, just match it up at the auto parts store, for half the price of dealer. Hope this helps.
