Questions & Answers

Where is the Cub Cadet made?

Asked by: Plumcrazy
Noteworthy, indeed. Knowing SBD will possibly have majority ownership soon is a strong negative for me. You can bet the quality of Cub Cadets will drop noticeably if this happens. "Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi - - - - also noteworthy, MTD (owner of CUB Cadet) sold a 20% stake last Fall to Stanley Black Decker, with an option for them buy MTD totally during 2021. "

They come on with the ignition switch and stay on as long as the switch is turned to the run position.

Ultima ZT1 42 in. 22 HP Kohler KT7000 Series V-Twin Dual Hydrostatic Zero Turn Mower with Lap Bar Control is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 260.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a mower that dont beat you up! After sitting in this Cub’s high-back seat for about 30 seconds, i knew this was my next mower. Having had back problems for the last 20 years, a comfortable ride keeps me on the machine longer...and this seat is like my e-z chair. I’ve own a JD 445 for 5-6 years and there is no comparing. Aside from comfort, i sense a much more stable ride. I get a great cut and the 42” deck hugs my trees and thousand-some foot of fence. Love the extra features such as the eazy adjustible control arms, thick padded grips, included tow hitch for my garden cart, front lamps and super eazy height adjustment. Wheels and tired are very turf friendly and burns are a non issue unless lawn is very wet and soft. Automatic brake set with arms fully extended is a nice touch compared to the awkward hand brake on my Deere. Comfort, Cut, and Speed...you are going to LOVE this machine. My only small complaint is the lack of any type of even a “sight” fuel ga. Id buy this mower again and twice on Sundays

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts great! Having the Cub Cadet Ultima Zero Turn riding lawn mower sure has made the chore of cutting grass much better and not so dreaded! Ride in comfort with the nice comfortable seat as you steer the lawn mower. It cuts very even and will make your yard look very nice. Cutting around trees and other obstacles is so much easier with it being a zero turn. Figuring out how to use it, make adjustments, etc is very easy to figure out. I haven't had any issues with it and don't mind cutting the grass. The quality is good and it is very durable. The hand controls are even comfortable and are easy to learn to use. We have a few small slopes in the yard and with this lawn mower we haven't had any issues. It doesn't leave behind clumps of grass. The tires are good and don't leave behind tire marks nor does it tear up the grass. Pretty smooth ride with no aggravating vibrations. There is quick and easy access to the deck and engine for making maintenance easy. I would recommend this lawn mower! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I compared the ZT-1 to Hustler, John Deere, Toro and... I compared the ZT-1 to Hustler, John Deere, Toro and Ariens all 50" cut ZTR's. All @ the $3,000 price. No other ZTR in the price range could match the ZT-1, John Deere has a stamped deck with a modified Briggs(wont last) and only a 2 year very conditional warranty(any excuse not to fix it) I say this as a previous owner of a Deere. The Ariens gets stuck on flat ground(forget inclines). The Toro is a good mower but not recomended for hilly ground. The Hustler has a 10 gauge fabricated deck but not recommended for hilly ground and no headlights or hour meter(they are not even sure of how long it will last). The 42" cut ZT-1 has a stamped deck (dont buy it) The 50" cut has a fabricated 11 gauge deck, it cuts in reverse, it's got led headlights, an hour meter, lap bar controls, cuts hilly and a 3 year warranty with a lifetime deck warranty. Recommend for 4 acres and the icing on the cake, a 23hp. Kawasaki engine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead on arrival Received my new mower today to find that after starting it the engine would immediately stall after pulling in the lap bars to move the unit or if i attempted to engage the PTO. Called Cub cadet custom service and was told there is an advisory stating customers reporting the issue i was having. I was told i could take my new mower to a repair store for repair and Cub Cadet would cover the cost of pickup and delivery to the shop. After finding out my local repair shops were backed up 3-4 weeks i decided to return for a full refund. Home Depot staff at my local store provided a refund. A full day on the phone with tech support and repair shops and having to return the mower is the reason for the one star. Cub Cadet needs to do better quality control testing as this is unacceptable

This is the most comfortable mower I have ever used. The seat is very nice, I could just use it to sit on while outside. The mower itself is awesome and cuts great and fast! I read a couple of reviews that stated it has vibration issues. Mine is as smooth as can be expected with blades spinning a million mile per hr underneath me. I have only one warning for you. It says in the manual and website that it is designed for flat yards with no more than 15 degree mild hills. I learned real quick that is an accurate statement. I have one area that is steeper than that and I just figured they were being over cautious and covering themselves from any liability. When I attempted to cut that area it slid sideways and felt like it could have easily flipped over. Won’t do that again, I will push mow that small area. This is a great mower that is fun to use. I believe that the very few negative complaints I read, most are positive are from folks that bought a residential mower expecting a commercial quality. If you want a very nice personal mower that is great quality and fun to use buy this one. Just make sure to stay off those hills.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed! I just bought the zt1 42" two days ago. Ive operated many zero turns and this one i must say impressed me in its all around mow-ability. Its fast, rides smooth in rough terrain and gets the job done. Vertically ive not had one hill give me a problem, horrizontally almost any incline is shakey.. Still yet glad i bought a cub cadet as my first zero turn.. Oh and im using it commercially not residential.. Approx 40 yrds per week!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beast Just got this mower delivered and jumped right on to cut the grass/weeds. I had poulan pro/19hp riding tractor before this and main reason for the upgrade was because it would bog down in certain spots or if I let it go a few days longer than normal between cuts. I would say the grass height before I started cutting was between 5-6 inches and pretty damp. I put the deck height right at 2.5 just to see how it would handle a lower cut than I usually do and this thing tore right through it. No bogging down at all. Also cuts clippings really fine so no clumping. I read alot of reviews and I notice a few people had mentioned a noticeable vibration with the blades engaged and that the machine is a little loud when running. I didn't notice any vibration or it being any louder than my previous riding tractor. As of now I would definitely recommend and say it's definitely worth the $$. Will update after a few mows..
