Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeds Expectations I've owned numerous mowers throughout the years, the latest being a Snapper Ninja mulching mower. But, after 10 years, it has been showing its age lately. After looking at many options, I decided we needed electric start for my wife and I wanted the maneuverability of front caster wheels. The Cub Cadet was the only reasonably priced option that had all of the features we were looking for. After mowing with the new Cub several times, to say we were impressed is an understatement. Although we haven't tried the bagger yet, mulching and side discharging was a pleasure. Our lawn has never been so level and there has not been any grass clumping either. The signature cut claim is right on and the caster wheel feature works as well as hoped. While it does take some getting used to, the self propelled feature is truly effortless. It's just different than a more conventional self propelled mower design. My main concern was going from a 190cc (875 torque) Briggs to the 159cc Cub made engine. Despite its smaller size, the Cub engine's power is impressive and it hasn't bogged while cutting up to 2" of grass while mulching or discharging. It's also much quieter than the Briggs and seems to go further on a tank of gas. We are very happy with the purchase of this mower and highly recommend it to anyone that asks. The mower has a ton of features at a great price and the results on the lawn are outstanding! June 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The shape and size of my lawn Finally! A lawn mower that I have been looking for! Because of my lawn's shape and size I need a mower that has front turning wheels for tight turns. June 17, 2015
