          Needed a 3/4 shut off valve to finish my new well pump installation. Made to be used with PEX pipe, is barbed on both ends so PEX tubing fits over and then must be clamped with Ouitiker clamps.

          Excellent gloves for just about any kind of yard work or handling lumber. They are flexible enough to allow handling most any garden or lawn tool. For construction jobs, these are nearly sliver proof. Cost considerably less than gloves with big name brands or logo's.

          Needed to finish a ceiling over hang. Though it's exterior, isn't prone to rain. I wouldn't recommend this for anything that requires a quality finish. But for my project was perfectly fine.

          This plumbing pipe coupling is lead free and made of durable, corrosion resistant brass. It's used to connect 2 lengths of pipe either of the same size or from 1 size to reduce to another size. Couplings are best used in low to medium pressure installs and can be used for water, gas and oil. Easy to install for both the PRO and DIYer.

          Answer: 
          These should fit your Cub Cadet. Because many brands of tractors are made by a single company there's no a lot of variation in many of the parts. However, blades can vary in how they mount to your tractor.
          Note the blades center hole is a 6 point star. This star pattern helps keep the blade centered and fits into a depression on the hubs where the blades bolt to the deck underside. But that star isn't

          Note the blades center hole is a 6 point star. This star pattern helps keep the blade centered and fits into a depression on the hubs where the blades bolt to the deck underside. But that star isn't always the same size and some brands use a different pattern instead of a star.
          I looked up blades for a Cub and have posted the picture. While they look the same, it's always best to take an old blade to your store to make a positive match.

          Is the 9 lb weight listed under specifications with the battery attached or for just the trimmer itself? If without, how much weight does the battery add?

          Answer: 
          It is for the tool. Depending on which size battery you use, will add 1 to 2 pounds. The battery listed is a 4.0 AH battery and weighs less than 2 lbs. But Ryobi also has 3.0 AH and 2.0AH batteries available which weigh less.

          There are attachments available that could turn this into an effective edger. However, because it would need to be turned on it's side, this is not recommended.

          Under optimal conditions each head will cover to a distance of 25 to 30 feet or up to a 60 foot circle.
          Square feet isn't a consideration as the heads are buried and operate in a circular motion. Each head is fully adjustable for arc up to 360 degree's. They are also adjustable for distance and water stream (solid or mist).

          This all is contingent upon your water pressure which ideally should be above 30 PSI for each zone (50 PSI is best). They will operate at pressures as low as 25 to 30 PSI. But coverage will be greatly reduced.
