              Easy to assemble. I like that you can attach a water hose to the top of the mower deck to clean it after use I find the drive handle system easier to use than the squeeze type drive handles Rugged

              The rear wheel broke the first time I used. I opened a case online and never heard back. I have been trying to call Cub Cadet for several weeks. On hold forever and no one ever answers. Tried there web site chat feature an it does not work. I have a new mower that I can not use.

              Assembled incorrectly in fthe factory
              Mower arrived with the spring lead for the drive belt handle attached to the blade handle, and the blade cable not connected to anything. I was able to get the blade cable into the right spot, and it started. But it looks like there is a missing piece to the drive handle. No way to connect it. Have to take it back and look for other options sadly. But the real issue is with the customer service from Home Depot. The local workers were very nice and tried to help, but the corporate workers are absolutely useless. This was my last purchase from Home Depot. There are far too many options out there to tolerate this kind of ineptitude.

                Bought this online, for home delivery. Purchased for my son and have owned less than a week. The bad: Everything was saturated in oil, due to the oil "pouch" getting punctured. Took about an hour to clean the mower and contents of the box. In the first pic, you can see the oil pouch, upside down in the box. There was a large hole in the bag, emptying about 95% of the oil all over the place. The oil pouch was probably inside the zip lock bag, which was also torn open. At least the temporary gas cap stayed in place so no oil in the gas tank. The good: This was really easy to put together and took maybe 10 minutes. I added 20oz of 10w30 oil from my stash and about 1/4 tank of gas. The mower started on the 1st pull and runs strong. Took awhile to burn off the oil residue. I like that the handles drop into the deck to keep the blades stationary during transport as well as the ability to snap the side discharge chute to the mower when not in use. Had the oil pouch been better secured or protected, this might have been a 5-star review.

                  This is a very nice mower cuts smooth and it walks at your speed. This is the greatest mower I have had self perpelled and walk behind but this is the best one so far. I would recomend this mower to anybody. And for the price you can't beat it.

                  I hate to write a negative review but after my experience how I could not? First of all, I don't believe any of this is Cub Cadet's fault. I Bought my first mower two weeks ago. No HD in St Louis currently stocks this mower in-store so you have to order online and CC ships it directly from their warehouse in MS to your home via UPS. The first box didn't arrive during the scheduled delivery window of 12-4pm but instead arrived around 8:30pm. Stuff happens - no biggie. The next morning I took the mower out of the box - there didn't appear to be any outward damage or dents to the box or mower. It was super easy to put together - no tools required - and seemed to be of good quality. Put the oil in and conditioned fuel as recommended and pulled the cord! Started immediately on 1st pull - and started grinding and throwing sparks immediately also!?! It was so loud and sparking so much I seriously thought the blade was actually hitting the concrete patio I built and started it on! Come to find out - there was a slight dent on the right side of the mower deck and the blade was actually making contact with the inside lower lip of the mower deck. Because it was shipped to home and purchased online the quickest way to get it returned and repurchased was to take it back apart, dump the unused fuel out, box it back up, and take back to the local store. Not a "convenient" option but there you go. The return was easy enough but the in-store repurchase of an online product was kind of a drawn out process but the store associates of our South County were very patient and helpful. (A+ to all the South County store associates!!!). OK, mower #2. Long story short: the box arrived in a heavily damaged state - dents, gouges, and had been re-taped multiple times it appeared. Needless to say the mower was damaged and unusable. Had to box it back up and return - again! Again, the store associates were friendly and helpful! The customer service rep called over the Outdoors Dept Head (Gary I believe) - he listened to my situation - asked some questions - and then made a recommendation. I bought an in-stock slightly upgraded Toro and love it! If they have this mower in-stock at the store I say try it! If it has to be shipped via UPS - DO NOT BUY! What I bought and love after 1st use: Toro 22 in. Personal Pace Recycler Variable Speed Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower with Briggs and Stratton Engine - Model# 20332

                    This mower was easy to out together. It works wonderfully! Very happy with my purchase. Makes mowing our largish yard a breeze. I love that it's self propelled but doesn't drag you along. It's also super nice that you can adjust the angle of the handle.
