Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by foresthillsbob Great mower for 1-2 acres
I'm really glad I went with the zero-turn Cub Cadet. Mowing my 1.2 acre yard went from being a dreaded chore to a pleasure, and you can get a high degree of precision thanks to the zero turn feature. It's very easy to drive and turn with almost no learning curve, and you can cut major time off your mowing schedule. It can be a little tricky to get in and out the seat for longer-legged people, but the seat is comfortable once you're there. I appreciate the LCD display that tells me how many hours until oil and air filter need changed.

I love this lawn mower I can't say enough about it. My first time ever driving or owing one and i must say how easy it was to learn how to use. The build quality is very good took hills like nothing very fast and powerful. I have cut my mowing time in half for sure maybe more. I now look forward to cutting my grass in the summer it will be a breeze.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ev Incredible mower!
As many people have done, I read review after review to look for the best deal and long term buy. After seeing this mower in Consumer Reports best, and also seeing the huge 160+ 4.5 star reviews from Home Depot, we decided to give this mower a shot. I have to say it's just a great mower. It has plenty of power, smooth engine (Kohler 22 hp), and is easy to use.
After uncrating it from shipping. (Home Depot delivered it to my house) I gassed it up and drove it around the yard without mowing. It seemed just fine in all my trouble spots and that told me things were plenty safe. I went right into mowing and it was very impressive.
I was a bit tentative about the steering with a regular wheel vs. the typical bars of a zero turner. Turns out this was way better of a choice allowing me what I thought was more control over our odd terrain. When your bent way over mowing around a tree in the orchard, I'd rather not have to have my hands on a bar way across from me and maintain the turn. Knowing that such a turn does not require speed, it just felt easier to have a hand on the steering wheel.
I've said to my spouse, "I hope this mower never dies!" It's seems pretty darn solid being a stamped set up. I've had it in a place where one front corner wheel was off the ground, due to the slope, and I simply backed up and was away from it without a second thought. (of course it was just barely in that position and I'm extremely aware of all the safeties needed)
Another thing I love about this mower vs. a typical lawn tractor is that the exhaust is out the back. I mow about 2.5 hrs and over the years of mowing with our former Cub I was so sick of breathing the exhaust.
I also have to say my time on the mower has been cut from 2.5 hrs down to 1.75+. Any reduction in that area is a huge plus for me! We have bumpy yard and the less of that the better.
Smooth strong engine
ease of use steering
less time on mower
engine exhaust in back
I'm sure I'll find other reasons to like this mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brandon Really enjoyed this zero turn mower
I went from your standard run-of-the-mill front engine mower, to this steering wheel controlled zero turn mower and cut my mow time down by 2/3.
I have 2 acres lof and that includes several smaller segmented areas that I have to mow. So to say there was a good amount of back and forth mowing or wasted time making big loops to turn the mower around. I went from just about 3 hours to mow, to getting the yard finished in just over an hour with this zero turn mower.
That said, I did run into a quality issue with the PTO breaking after 2.2 hours of mowing - as I was finishing moving my lawn for the 2nd time with this mower. The blades disengaged while I was cutting like normal, and I could not get the blades to reengage.
I don't feel I could give it 5 stars since the mower broke after the 2nd week I used it, but I still gave this 4 stars, because I believe this is a one-off issue and Home Depot went out of their way to make it right and resolve the problem, and the mower ran and handled great otherwise.

Ever buy a tool hoping to make your life easier, only to find it doesn't help or work like it was advertised? In today's world, do you ever feel 100% satisfied?
This mower is everything I dreamed it would be and more. It is the most satisfying purchase I have made in YEARS.
THE CUT, THE POWER, THE SPEED - ALL ARE WITHOUT DOUBT AMAZING!
I love my new Cub, and I would recommend it to anyone who thinks they will like it - Cause you too will LOVE IT!
Free shipping came in 3 days, delivered straight to my driveway and palat jacked to my garage. You need a buddy to get it un-crated, can't do it alone, but after that you can be up and mowing in 15 minutes.
I don't ever feel like I get 100% for my money, this time I definitely did.
