Rated 5 out of 5 by This tractor is powerful, great on fuel!!!! Great buy, I bought a John Deere at first, used it 2 times and I immedeiately brought it back and bought my Cub Cadet. WOW!!!! what a difference in tractors!!!!! The mower deck on the Cub has 4 wheels and maintains a smooth, level cut in uneaven areas. Very comfortable to ride. My daughter came home from Military leave and hoped right on my new Cub and started using it, I thought she would have just relaxed, but she mowed our lawn!!! January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Brand New Lawn Tractor This was my first brand new lawn tractor purchase, and so far I am very pleased with the performance handling and turning capabilities. I only gave quality an average rating because I just do not have enough history with the mower yet to know how well it is made and or how durable it is. The automatic transmission is awesome feels just like driving a small vehicle around the yard !! Overall so far it is a great mower and I would recommend the Cub Cadet brand and Home Depot to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't waste your money Bought this model in the spring of 2011 and it performed great the first season . My second season had to replace 3 PTO belts and finally after 3 $40. belts was informed there was an upgrade for the idler system on the mower deck $185. later that took care of the belt issue . My third season the second cut of the year there was an engine issue with the Kohler Courage a cracked block and by this time was out of warranty. The cost to replace the engine was $999. so instead of throwing good money after bad I sold it on Craigs List for $300. Before you buy go on line and read the blogs on the Kohler Courage engine . It is a dog. I will purchase another mower from Home Depot this year but it won't be a Cub Cadet April 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by most expensive paperweight I ever bought Bought this tractor 5 years ago when I got a new house because my ex loved the old Cub as much as I did. Unfortunately I had no idea how much Cub's quality has declined. Nothing but problems from the start. Deck leveling bracket broke after only 1 year then was no longer available to replace. Unit burned up batteries, belts and blade (the 3 Bs) faster that I could buy them. Non-stop fixes and adjustments to keep it running. Mower deck had to have all the guide wheels re-welded. And finally2 days ago, with only 210 hours use on it, the steering gears went bye-bye. I can't even bring up the parts list on the website to replace them. I'm not putting another penny into it and it's by the road waiting for the scrap metal people. I went out and bought a new Craftsman. At least they are not made by MTD. To sum it up in one word - JUNK. I will never buy another Cub product. September 15, 2014
