Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AWESOME! I did a lot of shopping around before I decided on the Cub Cadet, I couldn't find a unit that had more features for the money. The 22hp V-TWIN gave the deck a ton of power this thing will throw clippings 15 feet! The cutting deck with the deep dome and wide opening are great! I always used to mulch, but the deck cuts everything so small now I can just side discharge and still have a gorgeous cut. Also going from my old 42" tractor to this RZT is saving me a ton of time I am out cutting maybe 1/3 as long as I used to. I am also not having to do as much trimming. I love my RZT! April 19, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE IT! I have been wanting a Zero turn for several years now and have been mowing lawns as a side business for about 9 years now. I finally was financially able to start looking at Zero Turns, so I finally started doing my research. I first started out with Cub Cadet because I owned a 1330 Series lawn tractor for most of those 9 years. I looked up and watched videos on John Deer, Toro, and many more but always came back to the RZT 42. I loved the way it looked, and all the features it came on it. The Kohler Engine is awesome and would never by anything else but. I finally purchased the Cub Cadet RZT 42 and love it!! My first lawn I used it on is one of my returning customers that I have been mowing for all 9 years and this has cut my time in half or more! I started out push mowing which took me 1 hour and 10 mins. Then with my 1330 It cut it down to 45 mins... With the RZT 42 my first time doing it ive got it down to 20 mins or less! I was very Impressed with the Cut and Performance! All I can Say is, Go and get one of these right now! Thanks Cub Cadet!! May 29, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Should never been built The rear tires are too skinny and the pumps are too aggressive. Very easy too terf lawn. Clutch went bad in 1 year. The paddles are too sensitive causing oscillation when you hit a series of bumps. The good thing is it mows faster than a tractor. December 2, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I looked around for about 6 months during the winter before deciding on this RZT42 mower, as I had put in lots of trees on my lawn and had to mow around them. This is a great, powerful mower for my 2 acres of land. Fast, maneuverable, little maintenance. Glad I got it. May 4, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome! Cut mowing time by 66%...powerful & FAST! Home Depot in N Canton helped me out bigtime...military discount gave me 10% off...this mower really runs...great investment...little over a half acre is done in about 25 minutes...unreal how fast these things are, and they are VERY powerful with the 22HP Kohler VTwin motor...the steering wheel really makes it nice, too...Rob from Law & Garden was a great help, as was the lovely Latina-speaking lady at the Customer Service counter...thanks, Home Depot! Thanks for supporting veterans, too :) May 29, 2012
