          So pleased!!!
          I was a little scared about this purchase from some of the reviews but after I just did the 5 hour oil and filter (synthetic) oil change, I couldn’t be happier with this mower!! I cut my push mowing time from 2 hours to 15 minutes!! I find myself mowing neighbors yards just for the fun of it at 10 minutes a piece!! Now that I made it this far and this happy, time to invest in the bagger!! I love the deck wash port! I spray it all down every mow and pressure wash it every 3. Love it!!!

            Great performance and great design!
            I have about an acre at a second home which we were mowing with a Toro walk behind mower. I researched Zero Turn mowers. I compared Toro, Bad Boy, John Deere, Husqvarna and Cub Cadet and based on reviews and price I decided on the Cub Cadet. The Kawasaki engine is quiet, powerful and starts easily. Easy to operate, smooth cut and very comfortable. This cut my mowing time to less than half the time it was taking. I'm very happy with this mower and have recommended it to several friends who are considering a zero turn mower.

              Love the mower.
              I have to say this mower is more than enough, i cut over an acre of grass in about an hour with no problem and less gas than my lawn tractor. It handles well and operates great. I did install an hour meter that it should of had and wish it came with armrest also, but other than that i am very pleased.

              New Mower
              When it is delivered you do have to uncrate it yourself. Make sure you do not puncture a tire because there are staples and nails in the crate. Once I figured out that I had accidently gone over a staple, it was easy to plug. The mower cuts well but there is significant vabration when engaging the mower blades. The handlebars do take some fine tuning to make sure you can put even pressure to cut in straight lines. Overall, it seems to work well for the couple of weeks that I have had it.

                My CC ZT1
                I've only mowed twice with it so far and it is a world of difference between this mower and the lawn tractor that I've used for three years. I am very happy. I also am very happy with my experience at the Home Depot. They were very professional and helpful.
