Product Overview

The New Cub Cadet 42 in. 22 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV Zero-Turn Riding Mower features a steering wheel instead of lap bars, so it’s easier to learn and use. The 42 in. cutting width helps mow large areas of grass to reduce mowing time and the heavy-duty double-blade cutting deck is rust resistant for long-lasting use. The zero-turning radius offers efficiency and control when mowing and the automatic transmission lets you set your own pace. Even while mowing at different speeds, the dual hydrostatic transmission provides true zero-turn performance all while protecting your lawn and providing unparalleled stability. For added comfort, the simplicity of gas and brake pedals matches the arrangement of a car’s control and movement. To go forward, press the gas pedal. And to go in reverse, simply push the reverse pedal that sits right next to the gas. And with Synchro Steer Technology, the steering wheel controls both the front wheels and the independently controlled back wheels for greater maneuverability, tracking and stability on tough terrain and steep hills.

Customer Reviews

RZT-S 42 in. 22 HP V-Twin Dual Hydrostatic Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Steering Wheel Control-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Third year and still glad I bought it This is my third spring with the 42 inch model. Very innovative with the way it turns using the wheel verses the bars. Since I should not mow my fescue yard when it's still wet, I cannot complain if it leaves a small "fisheye" in the turf. On dry grass(the preferred way) the mower does not tear the turf at all. I mow 30,000 sf and it takes 60-65 minutes. Some issues that could be addressed is the oil filter is way too tight from the factory and not the easiest to remove. The steering column is not adjustable. The mulching blades are thin and do not hold an edge. I replaced with two gator blades and love the way the turf looks when done. The seat is really comfortable for us more centered guys if you know what I mean. Cup holder fits a water bottle nicely. The deck adjusts easily and gives a great range for both cool and warm season grasses. If you are tired of walking as I was, this is the right mower for you. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, amazing machine This is my very first riding mower and this machine does not disappoint. She is powerful, smooth and fast. I use to spend an hour mowing my lawn with a self propelled, now it takes me 10 minutes. Simply wonderful to use, read through the manual, I hope I can keep her running well for a very long time. I just wish she would cut a little higher like at 4 1/2" to 5" but it was trade off. Thank you and I hope customer service for this unit is top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves time and makes the yardwork enjoyable This is really a great product. Just bought mine in May '12 and can't believe the time it saves me. I look forward to cutting grass. It's great on Westen Pennsylvania hills, provides a clean cut with nice lines and runs like a champ. My yard looks spectacular after a fresh cut. The steering wheel on a zero turn is brilliant. I've never thought I could own a riding lawn mower with so much maneuverability and ease of use. I really like the deck wash system and the tractor is just really comfortable to drive. I'd recommend this product to anyone - and already have to a few neighbors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Works perfectly for my yard. Lots of turning required to get around obstacles and handles it no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great. Plenty of power to do cut my ditches. It is longer to give a smooth ride. Good value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very impressed I have a residential yard with some pretty steep hills that I used to cut with a gt2542 that was a great tractor but always felt top heavy and at least half the time I was nervous. I sold it for half what I paid 8 years later which is impressive and says a lot for cubs. I decided that the rzt s that says for hilly terrain had to be safer with the lower center of gravity? Boy was I right it is so impressive I can turn around in the middle of the hill and go back up without any fear. The 22 hp motor is crazy powerful. I wrote this to give back to the cub engineers for giving me peace of mind. If your wanting something for residential hills I doubt you could do better thanks cub cadet I for one am a very happy customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor Purchased this lawn tractor after I was not happy with the lawn service company and decided I would purchase a mower and do the work myself. After 1 year, my mower has almost paid for itself. My lawn is 1/2 acre but I have many flower beds and trees, the mower is very easy to mow around. Because I take my time and mow my lawn at various angle cuts and cut often, my lawn looks the best in the neighborhood. Definitely recommend the mower and bagger to get the job done well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!! Someone got it right This is what a zero turn mower has always supposed to have been. The steerable front wheels work great on hillsides and the steering wheel makes for a very intuitive experience. It just goes where you want it to without all the lapbar learning curve...and panic mistakes. Why would anyone even want a regular garden tractor or conventional zero turn? Kudo's to the entire Cub team for an excellent execution of a superb product.
