Rated 5 out of 5Â by tennisace57 Don't' know why I waited this long!
I decided to give my 2001 Lawn Boy to my daughter and purchase a new self-propelled. While I was very satisfied with my Lawn Boy I had know idea how much better this Cub Cadet could be. It was extremely easy to unpack and setup - adjust the handle, fill with oil and gas and start - that's it!
It has larger wheels which facilitate a more even cut. I purchased two (2) extreme mulching blades, which I would highly recommend. And the variable speed is nothing short of awesome. I cut my mowing time down from 1 hour 20 minutes to just under an hour and it uses less fuel to boot! And I should also mention that their Customer Service is also excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CarolinaBlue Best I've ever owned
I purchased this mower at the end of July 2014 and have used it several times over the past month. The mower is great. So easy to use on my front yard which is a slope. It may take some a few uses to get used to the self propel bar, its a push bar not a pull like many other mowers. Starts on first pull, easy to assemble (side note: assembly instructions talk about using cable clips to hold the drive and clutch cables to handle poles, these have been replaced with zip ties, I had to call Cub Cadet to confirm this after searching and searching for the clips). The rear wheels are a huge advantage to this mower, really easy to turn and really help on the uneven ground in my yard (several tree roots and some holes). I upgraded to this mower from an older Honda zero turn self propelled model, zero turn are not great on hills. This was definitely a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ladybug1054 Rear Wheel Drive is 4 Me!
I have a hill in my front yard and back yard and have gone through different brands of lawnmowers that are front wheel drive. My son gave me a RWD Cub Cadet quite a few years ago and when it died, I was going to cut costs and purchase a cheaper brand. That good old saying "you get what you pay for" is so true. I'm back to the cub cadet and loving it. It was very easy to put together which helped. I can't say enough good things about it. It cuts great. Because I am on a hill, when using the grass bag it does not fill completely full but that's ok with me. I just have a garbage can on both ends of the yard. My last Cub Cadet lasted around 10 yrs and that's after my son used it for 4 years, so I'm looking forward to a long relationship with this one!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Techsan68 Cut my mowing time in half!
I bought this model to replace a high rear wheel mower that had front wheel drive. All other major features were more or less the same. This model's rear wheel drive provided much more power and control to the cutting surface without being a lot more powerful motor. The result was dramatically reduced cutting time. Also, the plastic guide on the clipping bag helped keep the exhaust chute clear, resulting in less binding and even more time saving.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by dynawd Very Good Product
The innovative MySpeed Drive System provides control of the self-propelled mower or you can push it if you want additional exercise. You will find that it works well either way.
The catch bag is just the correct size for transferring the grass into a grass/leaf bag.
It has started on the first pull so far all season.
I would definitely recommend this product.
