CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Machine Nine years ago I bought a Honda HRX217KHXA Mower. It did its job very well. I decided to look at other models. I looked at Home Depot and online for electric start mowers. I decided on a Cub Cadet model SC500Z from Home Depot, the electric start was more than I wanted to pay. I checked Cub Cadet to see if there was a price difference. The Cub Cadet price for the SC500EZ was less than the SC500Z from Home Depot. I selected the SC500EZ from Cub Cadet and made the call. Due to the Cub Cadet pricing I was able to get what I really wanted. When it arrived on 05-02-2016, I followed the instructions, started the mower and made a couple passes in the back yard. The Cub Cadet SC500EZ impressed me more than my Honda did when I first used it. The swivel front wheels work as advertised, it bags, has a side discharge and mulches. The single blade mulches a little larger than what my double blade Honda did, but it is only noticeable because I was looking to see the difference. The electric start on the SC500EZ is excellent. This will be a saving for me not having to pull start the mower. The Effortless Drive Control My Speed System is easy to get use to and works very well. I like this type of control because it is easy to adjust my speed as I move and it allows me to keep both hands on the comfortable handle. Changing the height of the front wheels is a little more time consuming but overall it is nothing to complain about. I am glad I bought the Cub Cadet SC500EZ. May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Front wheels need redesign I Like the swivel wheel concept but front wheels need to be redesigned. Frequently front wheels have trouble going back to midline after full turn. Will carve trenches in lawn. Compensation: Lift front wheels up off ground while moving forward then let wheels return to ground and they will realign back to baseline. Otherwise has good power and nice forward speed. Also If you need to restart during a job, sometimes you have to take battery out and blow away dirt from battery contacts, reseat the Li ion battery, then it will start right up. March 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Self Propelled I purchased this lawn mower with some reservations at first having owned a John Deere self propelled mower before this. It was getting difficult to get replacement parts for the John Deere. After purchasing the SC 500 EZ and using it for the first time, I was impressed. Easy electric start and much lighter than my John Deere self propelled. I just love that the front wheels turn independently and allows me to turn the mover without having to push down on the handle to lift the front end up to turn. It cuts down on my mowing time by about 10 to 15 minutes. Great mower. Highly recommend it to anyway looking for a good self propelled at a good price. July 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EZ to Turn Being over 60 with neck and back issues, I needed a machine that would be less strain on my back to turn. This definitely fit the bill and the electric start also helps. It has plenty of power to cut taller wet grass, within reason of course. It has more suction than a previous Troybilt unit. Would have liked easier to adjust swivel wheel height as well as a personal pace lever propel system like Troybilt. But my initial reason for purchase was reduced back strain as well as a closer turn radius for trimming so it met my need. September 30, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good mower, bad speed control Not as easy to operate as my previous models. The speed control is too touchy and hard on wrists and shoulders as it keeps changing speed. especially on any incline. Probably ok if the entire yard was smooth and level. October 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by i AM VERY HAPPY I PURCHASED THE SELF PROPELLED SC 500 EZ. I HAVE A BIG YARD AND IT CUTS WELL. ALSO I ENJOY THE FRONT PIVOT WHEELS GOING AROUND TREES. I ALSO OWN THE PUSH START BUTTON WHICH MAKES IT EASY. September 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This mower is the best I have ever had The self propelled makes it so easy. Almost like just taking a walk. I have back problems and this the only mower I can use. Very satisfied September 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst investment I have made. I am highly disappointed in this purchase. I was very excited to use the Caster Wheel feature. Unfortunately, these wheels (That factored into a higher cost) are not useful. In fact, these wheels are more troublesome than they are worth. They get caught/trapped in any little indentation in the lawn. When this happens, the wheels turn and cannot move forward. The self propel feature does nothing to help with this. So basically, I cannot use this feature of the mower on my lawn. The second issue is with the bag. If you are bagging your grass clippings, removal of the bag is extremely messy. It does not hold much, and upon removal grass is caught in many areas of the back portion of the mower. I honestly cannot fathom how in product development, someone would think that this is customer worthy. It is a mess and takes extra time to clean with every episode of removing/emptying the bag. Highly unhappy and would not recommend this item. July 31, 2015
