Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I want to express that I love my zero turn was afraid at first as I did not want the bars for steering and then the steering wheel was on it what a genius idea I totally was ready to test drive it and my next step I bought it and brought it home and of course mowed my lawn ,it was a little tricky at first but I mastered it and I love it very much . Sincerely Sharon October 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good design but very poor quality Bought this mower May of '14 and I am not impressed with the quality. In the past year, I've had the drive belt come off, the drive linkage on the right side came apart and jammed into the ground. And now, at the first oil change (after 50 hours of operation), I find that the assembler at the factory put the oil plug in so tight that I can't remove it. So now I get to pay to have something fix that the knuckle draggers at the factory screwed up. This will be the first and last Cub Cadet product that I purchase. September 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amanzing Mower! I've recently purchased my first house with 2 acres of land. I needed a lawnmower that would get the job done, that was dependable, built with quality and was comfortable to drive. I looked at many different lawnmowers of all different brands, shapes and sizes. I test drove a lot of em, I read a lot of reviews and in the end, it was a no brainier to go with a Cub Cadet RZT-S 42. I bought it from a local dealer that ordered it for me, set it up, and delivered it fully gassed and ready to go. From the point of purchase, to just simply mowing my lawn, everything has been top notch! I highly recommend this mower over the competition! August 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this lawnmower!!! Being a female well over 60 with back problems this mower has cut my lawn mowing time almost in half. I mow two and one half acres and it only takes me 2 hrs as opposed to 4 or more. If i went at top speed i could probably do it much quicker.. The mower blows the grass cuttings so far out that it eliminates having to remow the piles of cuttings. I have trees, ditches and hills and it does them all. I'm anxious to use the mulcher kit because I also have lots of fall leaves. I love the zero turn ,my yard looks better than ever. September 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loved my new mower from the very first time i used it. .Very easy to use and control. The only thing I don' t like is the deck doesn't cover the wheel track on discharge side of the mower, but I knew this before I purchased it. That being said I would recommend this mower to any one. Love it. September 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Mower I purchased this mower a couple of months ago, and love it, easy-to-use, cuts great gets around my yard with ease, I have a sloping front yard and my old JD tractor would spin this Cub goes right up,down or sideways so easy and mower really even.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by learn to cut purchased a RZTS 42 in August, having fun learning a new lawn mower, First zero turn. September 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love the way it cuts i bought a cub because I had owned a walk behind an am at a point in my life that I wanted a rider . I had some issues when I first bought this mower with the PTO but my dealer took care of it . I love the look of my yard when it has been cut with this mower and the speed in which I can get it done . Thank you Cub Cadet August 26, 2015
