Answer: 
There's really no need to have the store assemble it. It comes almost entirely assembled in the box. If you can mow your lawn, you should be able to do the minimal assembly it requires.

Answer: 
Some stores will have one available for pickup that is already assembled. I'm not sure if you will be buying online to take in to assemble. assembly is very easy on this product. essentially you just have to extend the handlebar and but tighten a couple of bolts, no tools required.

Answer: 
I'm sure the store will assemble this mower if you ask, but the assembly is very easy. all you need to do is unfold the handle and tighten the wing nuts. you will also need to wrap the bag around the frame. other than that the unit is fully assembled.

Answer: 
Hello - Due to the fact that the front wheels on the Cub Cadet SC500Z are on casters, they each have to be adjusted manually. Thank you for your question.

Am a contractor who for years bypasses a Lowes store - 3 miles from my house - to travel 26 miles to HD in new hartford. Was getting a 10% discount on all purchases to keep me coming there - approx 9 - 14K spent every year. Now they tell me can't do anymore. What can you do about this? And what can you do about this mower?

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall good mower. I like the self propelled action. I have one concern and that is that it has a lot of plastic parts that I fear will break easy. January 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This mower is awesome!! Easy to put together. Easy to pull start. I'm 5'1" and 130 lbs and I zoomed around my yard with this mower with no problems at all. I love it. I had to sign up to be notified when they were available. It took a few months before one became available so I had to pay someone to mow in the meantime. But I'm so glad I waited for it. I even bought one for my mother for Christmas because it is so great. The mulch bag is easy to use and I can put my clippings around my flower beds. I roll right over my gravel driveway to reach different parts of the lawn and there's no problems going over gravel and back onto the grass. The wheels on the front make this mower so easy to use. ALL PUSH MOWERS should have these types of wheels!! I mow my quarter-acre yard in about half an hour. When we had a larger property, we had a cub cadet riding mower that lasted over 15 years so I know we'll get years of use out of this one. I love it. December 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great maneuverability Great performance so far after one summer's use. Starts on 1or 2 pulls, maneuverability is excellent. Cuts well and the variable speed self-propelled feature makes it easy to cut on hilly terrain or on flat ground. September 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Maneuver We purchased this mower to replace a basic self propelled unit. The front caster wheel configuration was very appealing to us for the ease of maneuvering. The variable speed control was an unexpected bonus. Unit starts like a charm, maneuvers very easily and has plenty of power for heavy grass or uphill movement. Very pleased with the product. August 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THIS IS THE SECOND PURCHASE OF THIS MODEL FOR ME AND THERE ARE SOME DEFINITE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE SELF PROPELLED LEVER ASSEMBLY AND BAGGING SYSTEM THAT I HAVE FOUND TO BE MUCH MORE "USER FRIENDLY" THAT THE MOWER PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED THREE OR FOUR SEASONS AGO. August 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best ever Zero turn expedites getting the lawn mowed. Amazing what that feature alone can do. So much quicker and mower performs just like one would hope. Am buying a second one for my son. September 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower, average bagger This is my second Cub Cadet mower, the first was the SRC 621 and lasted about 13 years. The new mower is very powerful and is very easy to operate. The one pull start is great and the new deck wash option is very handy. However, the bagger leaves a lot to be desired. The clippings pile on the left side of the bag and fall out when removing the bag. If not for this I would have given it an excellent rating. June 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Mower, with a few tweaks it would be great Light nimble mower. They greatly improved the drive system from the old model........ however, the old model had grease zerks on the front casters and the new model did not. Quickly remedied. The engine kill cable breaks off at the handle bars. A warranty issue quickly fixed. Needs to be a little more robust there. I have 3 mowers and they all broke before the end of May and my friend just lost his here in June on new mowers. So probably needs looked at. June 29, 2015
