None of those items are included, only the mower itself, and some Oil for it. You have to order those items separately.

21 in. 159cc Front-Wheel Drive 3-in-1 Gas Self Propelled Walk Behind Lawn Mower is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Cub Cadet 21 in. 159cc Front-Wheel Drive 3-in-1 Gas Self Propelled Walk Behind Lawn Mower is... This Cub Cadet 21 in. 159cc Front-Wheel Drive 3-in-1 Gas Self Propelled Walk Behind Lawn Mower is quite the machine. Assembly could not get easier. All you have to do is unfold the handle, tighten the two knobs and your done. The 159cc engine has plenty of power to get through that tall grass and the front-wheel-drive makes it very easy to cut that grass. It's so easy my grandson has already said he will be using it this summer to make some money. After we got it out of the shipping box and unfolded the handle and added gas it started on the first pull!! How impressive is that! The reason it starts so easy is because this mower has a what is call a "thermal autochoke SureStart guarantee, that certifies your mower will start in 1 or 2 pulls for the duration of the 3-year warranty period". The mower has 3 different ways to handle the grass clippings. You can bag them, mulch them or side discharge them. You can easily adjust the mower deck to cut the grass between 1.75 inch to 3.75 inch. The handle can be adjusted to 3 different positions for a comfortable day of mowing.

We purchased this lawnmower because of the positive reviews (easy to assemble and start), but the pull was stuck tight and would not pull all the way out. Called customer service and was told the pull was locked and given a dealership to repair the lawnmower but his dealership does not repair Cub Scout mowers. I was told to go 22 miles to the next city for a dealership. In the meantime, the grass needs cutting. OUR NEIGHBOR LET US USE HER MOWER. Later this week, I will take the mower to be repaired. Out of all the lawnmowers in the store, we would be lucky enough to be shipped this mower. I will NEVER order certain products online!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The grass isn't growing yet, but I have mowed up some leaves and winter detritus, and the mower i... The grass isn't growing yet, but I have mowed up some leaves and winter detritus, and the mower is strong and mulches well, even tough Magnolia leaves disappeared. After adding gas and oil and raising the handle, it started on the first half-hearted pull. So the automatic choke works, you don't have to prime it or anything. However, for the first few minutes until the engine warms, the auto-choke causes it surge, which is troublesome at first until you get used to it. Compared to my old 'Red': this mower is much lighter, but seems sturdy. Part of that is that the engine is smaller, 160cc vs 190cc. It is slightly quieter, and a good deal faster, I tried them next to each other, one in each hand, and the Cadet runs away from old 'Red'. The bag also seems bigger. The gas tank is easy to fill, just pour the gas in, no weird baffles inside that make it spit back at you. While the deck is steel, I do see a lot of plastic in the construction, more than I'd like, but I guess that is the modern way. The speed control works well, you can go as fast as you want without really having to push. I like front wheel drive because I can push down on the handle and pop the front wheels off the ground when I want to. Unless you have a very uneven lot, you don't need a high-wheel mower, and a low-wheel mower like this handles better. There are only two wheel adjusters, front and back, vs bothersome four on the old mower. This mower adjusts from 'scalping' to nice and high. Mowing high and often, and mulching to recycle the nutrients, is the simplest way to get a great lawn. It will fill in holes all by itself, and stay green even through the dry season thanks to its better root system. Mowing low leaves the grass in a constant state of desperately trying to re-grow its top, at the expense of everything else. Bagging the clippings simply removes all the nutrients, especially trace minerals, and in the long term will actually impoverish the soil. In the fall, one of the best things you can do for the lawn is use the mower to mulch up the tree leaves in place, rather than raking them into piles of pollution. Tree leaves are terrific fertilizer, full of trace minerals, and completely free. It's also a lot less work than raking. Cub Cadet is an MTD brand, which also includes Troy-Bilt, Bolens, and Yard-Man. The engine appears to be their own product, not a Briggs & Stratton that you find on many others. I think that's a good thing, I've always found Briggs engines to be extraordinarily noisy.

These people could not care less about their customers. I bought a new lawn mower from them and it was missing parts when it arrived after shipping to my home. Essential parts, as in I can't use the product without them! Cub Cadet will NOT help me in getting those missing parts to me. They will not pick up their phones if I call, they will not respond if I email, chat does not work because they simply tell me I have to use the telephone to contact them, and as I said, they never pick up on their end. They don't even care if you let them know how bad off you are on social media. Go ahead and complain on their Facebook page, they don't care. So stay away from this company! They will take your money, and will not deliver the goods for that money you spend! I have just invested in a piece of equipment I can not use!

Pretty much just need to extend the handle, attach the bag and add oil. Oil needs to be added and it was included which is great so you can use it immediately. Started up right, first pull. This is a powerful mower. I had my concerns about how the handle works. It is different from any other mower I have used. Works with the speed you want to mow. It worked fine. It is easy to adjust the height of the mower to get the cut you want. It worked well on long wet grass too! Can be used with included bag, to mulch or side discharge.

I ordered my first Cub Cadet online, feeling good after reading numerous 5 star reviews about this product. It arrived on time via UPS and the packaging was great. I opened the box and simply wheeled the mower right on out. Added the supplied oil, raised the handle bar and adjusted the deck height and I was mowing. What a great machine so far. I Have mowed 4 times and have been really impressed in its performance. The paint is thick and looks like it will hold up. The engine fires on the first pull. Extreme ease to use even if you are a senior. All around great product so far. 25 years of John Deere and I have changed to Cub Cadets. 1/3 the price and 4/3 the quality.

Easy to push, lightweight, started with hardly a pull, and the handle adjusts high so I don't have to stoop over anymore which hurt my back and made mowing the lawn a miserable chore. I'm 55 and thought I would miss having a non self propelled but this thing is so easy to handle I've not missed it. The bag fills easier than any mower I've had so no having to stop and empty a partially filled bag. Height adjustment is easy to use, one lever for the front and one for the rear.
