Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This tractor is powerful, great on fuel!!!! Great buy, I bought a John Deere at first, used it 2 times and I immedeiately brought it back and bought my Cub Cadet. WOW!!!! what a difference in tractors!!!!! The mower deck on the Cub has 4 wheels and maintains a smooth, level cut in uneaven areas. Very comfortable to ride. My daughter came home from Military leave and hoped right on my new Cub and started using it, I thought she would have just relaxed, but she mowed our lawn!!! January 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First Brand New Lawn Tractor This was my first brand new lawn tractor purchase, and so far I am very pleased with the performance handling and turning capabilities. I only gave quality an average rating because I just do not have enough history with the mower yet to know how well it is made and or how durable it is. The automatic transmission is awesome feels just like driving a small vehicle around the yard !! Overall so far it is a great mower and I would recommend the Cub Cadet brand and Home Depot to anyone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money Bought this model in the spring of 2011 and it performed great the first season . My second season had to replace 3 PTO belts and finally after 3 $40. belts was informed there was an upgrade for the idler system on the mower deck $185. later that took care of the belt issue . My third season the second cut of the year there was an engine issue with the Kohler Courage a cracked block and by this time was out of warranty. The cost to replace the engine was $999. so instead of throwing good money after bad I sold it on Craigs List for $300. Before you buy go on line and read the blogs on the Kohler Courage engine . It is a dog. I will purchase another mower from Home Depot this year but it won't be a Cub Cadet April 26, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Very disappointed....only 75 hours. Belts continually jumps off pulley. The turning radius is a joke. It pushes through like a bulldozer straight forward and rips up your lawn. All plastic behind dash cracked by pulling on steering wheel to get off the mower. Now the trans is shot. Doesn't can be in reverse and the mower still goes forward. Nothing but issues with this mower. The best feature it had was the large gas tank that leaks and brown spots your lawn. Soooooooo disappointed! July 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good mower but skimped on some quality. I've owned this mower for about 90 days now and mow about 1/2 acre of hilly yard which almost none is level. It seems to do the job well but will know more next year when I get a full season out of it. The headlight assembly is pretty cheap. Water and dirt gets inside which reduces their illumination ability. I tried to seal the but stuff still gets in. The headlight bucket is just some very thin junk shiny plastic and the right bulb is burnt out. There needs to be a switch to turn them off because I mow mostly in the day and they aren't needed. I DO like the "mow in reverse" feature but it has disengaged twice so far. The turning radius is great but you must go very slow. The hood should have a latch because going down hill it opens up so I put velcro on it to keep it closed. The muffler should have been high heat painted because it's starting to rust along with the wheels and it's garage kept. Great power and mowes great but I need the lug type tires for the hills. I'll post again next year! October 19, 2014
