Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice machine It took about 15 minutes to get used to the controls--a bit touchy at first, but figured it out pretty quick. Very fast. Took a little while to find the wires to disconnect so it would mow in reverse-(there's a switch on each lap bar-underneath), but other than that---no problems. Very glad I bought it. I can do 3 yards in the time it used to take to mow mine alone...much beefier frame than the green and yellow one out there at the other home improvement stores.... June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lawn Mower for Great price Cuts great,fast, and smooth. The only thing I don't like is the auto blade shut off when in full reverse. But not that big of a deal. Still does a great job. May 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mower is Great The mower itself is great. Assembly was easy. It had a cotter pin missing from the deck, so I had to go to the store. They should tell you that it arrives in a large crate and that assembly is required. Knocking the crate apart was easy enough, but getting the mower off of the pallet was a bear. I'm also faced with paying to have the packaging removed. The cheapest price I have so far is $65. It's still cheaper than the dealer, but you should know what you're getting into. June 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Learning to drive was a change from the typical tractor, but definitely worth it! The biggest challenge was realizing that reverse on the zero-turn mower turns off the blades as a safety feature. On my rider this was not the case so initially it seemed like there was an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RZT-L 42 inch Cub Cadet Zero Turn Mower This Mower is the best I have ever purchased. It was very easy to learn to operate. It does a good job on flat ground. It does everything I want in a mower. It is comfortable and the noise level is acceptable. It will operate as slow or as fast as I want to mow. However there are a few drawbacks to this machine. The machine has NO suspension other than the seat springs. Its cut is not uniform when operating over slightly rough terrain. Lastly it does not have any user grease fittings. I intend to add grease fittings on all wear points this winter. Overall it is an excellent mower for the price. November 12, 2014
