Riding Mower arrived a day earlier than expected which turned out to be a great thing as we needed to be out of town the date of the original scheduled delivery. We have only used it once but we're able to mow our large lawn area plus about a quarter of an acre of our four acre property in far less time than mowing half of the lawn area! Our acreage is rolling hills which the mower handled with extreme ease. When they say Zero Turn that is exactly what it means, it turns on a dime! The mower also has seven height options which can be changed just by stopping the mower and pulling a lever. The lever adjustment is a little difficult to move from one height to another but this could just be an issue since I have arthritis in my hands plus I'm 65 years old. The bottom line is, I highly recommend this mower to anyone who needs a powerful machine.

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by gpinsand I really really want to like it
So, where to begin? First off I ordered the mower and it was going to be delivered "in a few days". I was planning on going out of town and I wanted to make sure that I was going to be at home. I called Home Depot and then they transferred me to the delivering company. After a 5 minute conversation, it became clear that the delivering company was in no way going to deliver this mower. It was over 500 pounds and they were incapable of delivering it. My immediate response was to call Home Depot and inquire about it. I asked him didn't they think that the company would know if it was over 500 pounds they would not be able to deliver it? After quite a bit of calling and recalling (with very little feedback from either the delivering company or Home Depot) it was arranged to be delivered by a third party company. They finally delivered the mower and brought it to the house. Just as a sidenote the delivery company truck broke down and they were in the driveway fixing it for about two hours.
After receiving the mower and going over it thoroughly, everything looked in order. I filled it with a oil and gas and started mowing. Everything was going great until about 40 minutes in one of the front wheels turned sideways and the mower started lurching left and right. I looked at it and realized that the teeth that meshed the front wheel and the drive system together had slipped and the wheel was now about 4 to 5 teeth out of alignment. I later realized that it had also broken the tie rod for the steering. I contemplated fixing it and decided that I wouldn't try to realign the teeth due to possibly messing up any warranty. You could tell that something was wrong from the factory because the teeth weren't level and meshing together well.
The first factory repair center that I called told me that it would be three weeks before they could even look at it. I ended up calling another one that was about 40 miles away and they told me that they could get on it fairly quickly. So I put it on the trailer and headed down the road.
About a week later they call me back and told me that part had been welded on upside down and that was causing the problem with the teeth not lining up properly. They replaced the broken tie rod and I went and picked it up.
I got home and mowed with it for about 20 minutes and POW! The wheels were out of alignment again. I looked underneath and I had broken another tie rod. I called the service center back and they stated that they were very disappointed that is broken again and actually came and picked it up for me. They said that it may have a recall in the future. It is still in the shop and I have yet to be able to finish mowing my yard after having purchased it 6 weeks ago.
I love how it turns, rides and cuts. It seems to be a decent mower but jesh, I wish it wasn't so prone to breaking. If it breaks again (once I get it back) I'm going to ask for my money back!

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.
