Product Overview

  • 22 HP Kohler 7000 Series twin-cylinder engine operates smoothly
  • Wheel-controlled, dual hydro transmission with mow-in-reverse
  • 42 in. cutting deck with deck wash kit included
The Cub Cadet 42 in. 22 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV Zero-Turn Riding Mower features a steering wheel instead of lap bars, so it's easier to learn and use. Its 42 in. cutting width helps mow large areas of grass to reduce mowing time, while the heavy-duty 2-blade cutting deck resists rust for long-lasting use. With a zero-turning radius, you get ultimate efficiency and control when mowing, and the automatic transmission lets you set your own pace. Even while mowing at different speeds, the dual hydrostatic transmission provides true zero-turn performance while protecting your lawn and providing unparalleled stability. For added comfort, the simplicity of gas and brake pedals matches the arrangement of a car's control and movement - simply press one pedal to go forward and the other to reverse. And, with Synchro Steer Technology, the steering wheel controls both the front wheels and the independently controlled back wheels for greater maneuverability, tracking and stability on tough terrain and steep hills.

  • Cub Cadet signature cut smooth-arc blades, cut overlap and deep dome deck provide flawless results

Questions & Answers

does the lawn mower cut when you are in reverse thanks Jim in pa

Asked by: Jim
Yes, it does, but... Reach down into the metal decking around the reverse pedal and find the screws. Loosen just one to maneuver the trip switch out of the way of the reverse pedal. I know this is a safety device but it is a real PITA since it shuts off the PTO everytime you need to back up a little.

Why does this lawnmower not cut in reverse?

Asked by: Betty
It does mow in reverse. From the position the key is in after mower starts, turn key back one notch then press the yellow button and red light comes on. Now blades won't go out of gear when you back up. However if you get off the mower you have to do it all over. Turn the switch back to just started position and repeat above process.

weight

on an upslope drive with this mower has any one had any problems .I saw and test drove it at the Danville VA store .Which I think is a great idea .But I did notice that all the weight was in the back of the mower and wondered about this .I am a short women mowing 3 acres of land .I have used a troy built for years .I have a cub cadet lap bar mower that I feel I can not control well .It was my husbands and since his heart attack he cannot use .I feel bad since it only has 63 hours on it .
Asked by: sissy
There is a little bit of common sense here. I have been mowing with this mower for 3 years for lots of people. There is nothing but steep slopes and the like here. I have climbed as steep of slopes as I ever climbed with the conventional steering wheel type with the motor in front. Today I was mowing on steep side hills until I chickened out. New development and they mowed with a push mower before, I can't imagine how they stayed up there to push the mower. Front wheels won't slide down the way the did on convention type. If you are nervous about the slope stay off it is the best way. There is an excellent chance, as with any mower, you won't get a second chance if you flip it, so don't be stupid. It is like a billy goat, it would be real easy to get on to steep of slope and end in disaster. There is absolutely no way I would trade this mower for the lap or lever type. I mowed for years with the lap type.

When cutting deck is engauged the mower vibrates more than I expected, after checking other zero turn mowers they all vibrated the same The deck is floating,. seams its normal, steering is a bit firm when turning steering wheel at slow speed. Love cruise control feature, and ease of maintanence, Would recommend to a friend who wants a zero turn ryder mower.

I called the engine manufacturer, I called Cub Cadet, I called Home Depot. After hours of run around and no one willing to claim responsibility I bought the part myself. I am very dissatisfied with the delivery process of the mower. I love the lawn mower. It works wonderful. David Hagstrom

I do my yard of about 1/2 acre in approximately 10 minutes, and can do an acre+ field in about an hour. The zero turn part is a bit tricky to get used to, but once you do, it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet RZT S 42 The mower have met my standards and I finally enjoy mowing my lawn now. I found the steering wheel on this model to be very helpful in cutting patterns in my lawn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well Easy enough to put together. Cuts well, easy to maneuver, but to get full zero turn, you have to turn the steering wheel hard and quick. So far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut my mowing time in 1/2! Went from a self propelled walk behind mower to this cub cadet zero turn ride on. Does an acre no problem in 30 minutes. Highly recommend.
