Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 224 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Now that's a machine! 18" high wet grass. I was between rain storms and had to do something before it got any worse This mower/machine went through this field almost like it was 3" high grass- and not at even 1/2 throttle. The turning radius on the machine was almost as good as a "0" turning mower. The clean up was also very easy with the hose connection at the top of the mowing deck- I still did a little more since I'm fussy about that kind of thing. Much to my surprise I found that it also grease z irks so I can maintain the machine! Look at the others- they are "sealed" but for how long! A great unit allows the owner to maintain it- period! I don't trust anything to be "maintenance free"! May 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Engineered to Fail! Bottom line is that it is cheaply built with parts that are designed to fail and very expensive to replace! Check the part pricing before you buy! Keep reading if you want details on my experience. Check the part pricing before you buy! Initially I was happy with my purchase; however, after about 50 hours of use this mower began to show its faults. First the deck spindles gave out, and yes they were properly maintained. When I contacted cub-cadet about the warranty they said a service dealer would have to look at it and typically those were not covered because of normal wear. Well, living out in the middle of nowhere and the nearest dealer 50 miles away, I sucked it up and ordered new ones and again after about 50 hours those wore out as well. This was mostly the only problem, except for the oil drain plug, until I hit 200 hours (at which the warranty expired) when the muffler broke loose. At 210 hours a cheap bracket fell off which held the expensive electronic PTO clutch in place. This would not have been to big of a deal except that wiring harness into the clutch did not have a breakaway connector of any sort and the wire broke off at the clutch giving no way to repair it. An expensive part, which was fine otherwise, rendered useless because the self tapping screws that like to loosen up and fall out did just that. Upon fixing that my next problem occurred at 219 hours when the fuel pump quit. That has been repaired and now at 220 hours the engine is beginning to burn oil and cuts out after about 15 minutes of use. May 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by does everything I need it to This is my first tractor so I don't have anything to compare it to but I have had this for about two years and have used it to cut grass, pull a trailer, bag and mulch grass and plow snow with the snowplow attachment. It has performed well with all that I have out it through. I would buy another one if it is every needed and recommend it to others. June 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Possible bad blade. First off, excellent machine. The only issue I had, was after mowing for about 20 minutes I noticed that a blade was either loose or bent. It ended up putting to big circles in the front yard. Took the box off and seen that one blade had bent downwards. Once swapping the blades, it has worked as it should. One little hiccup, other than that it has worked flawlessly! May 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mower blades excellent tractor standard mowing blades are poor. very thin, bend easily, don't stay sharp. as soon as possible replace with extreme blades (942-04290-x) May 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the best Lawn Tractor. This is the best lawn tractor on the market I looked at all the other brands and none were as good as this one. I'm glad I got it I love riding it. May 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mows great! My mower mows great. The yard is done evenly and it's fast both forward and reverse. It does good in tight circles. May 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Lawn Mower We have just purchased this lawn mower to cut our small yard and roughly 3-4 acres of open field at our cabin, that I keep cut. I bought it from my local Cub Cadet dealer (Pells) they provided excellent service. The warranty set the mower apart from the other mowers, I know we won't put a ton of hours on it over the next few years, but the unlimited hours just says something to me about their build quality. We use to use a mower called "Ranch King by MTD" and it was terrible. I have used this one 2 times in the last few weeks and could not be happier. 11 hours so far, I changed the oil once, the oil filter could use a better design as I got oil all over when removing it. The steering radius is excellent, it cuts amazing. I bought the bagger, I don't think I will need it except for the fall leaves, unlike a lot of other mowers it doesn't clump at all with the side discharge. The mower rides just as solid as it looks, nothing rattles or is loose, it feels like driving a luxury car. I think I really made a good investment on this mower. Thank you Cub Cadet. May 24, 2015
