Customer Questions & Answers

Can this mower handle hills of 10 to 20 degrees and is a zero turn best for hills or is a normal riding lawn mower best?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Alan, I'm Travis from The Home Depot. The Cub RZT42 should not be used on an incline greater than 15 degrees, or a grade increase of two and one half feet every ten feet of travel. The owner's manual has a handy template to help make this determination. Copy and paste this: . Front engine tractors have the same restrictions on slopes. It is always recomended to mow up and down, rather than across slopes.

It doesn't wont to pull off when pushing forward on the handles? It just grunts? What is the problem?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Fred. We would suggest that you look at two things concerning the issue with the 42 in. 22 HP Kohler Courage Automatic Zero-Turn Riding Mower. First, make sure that your parking brake is not stuck on. Also, we suggest that you look to see if one of the transmission bypass rods is partially open. Thank you for your question.

42 in. 22 HP Kohler Courage Automatic Zero-Turn Riding Mower is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!
