Terrible mower
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought it in summer and it died with only a little mud kickex up under it. Error codes that i could not get it out of the field. Flimsy blades, i have only 18 hours on it and second set bent without even hitting a rock or object. Not well designed. Also very jerky and will not cut straight line. Very disappointing.

    Not very good. Hard to controll
    Well, I gave the ZT1 42E three tries at cutting my lawn. The ZT1 42E is extremely hard to control. I went through the calibration process twice and it did not seem to help. Overall the build quality is excellent, the fit and finish is also excellent. The batteries do seem to last as advertised. But I don’t believe anybody can get past how hard it is to control this mower. It is so jerky at times you’re almost scared to get close to any object. It’s hard for me to believe that zero turning mower is meant to be A challenge while cutting your grass but this one is. I wish I can give it four stars or even three but you just can’t get past how out of control this mower can be at time.

      Great product.
      Just wanted to give a review of this new battery powered Cub Cadet. First off the quality appears to be great. I just cut my yard for the first time and it did awesome. Before first use and after a full charge, I did watch the Cub Cadet YouTube video that shows the calibration procedure and did that before my first cut. Controls are a little jerky like others have said, but nothing that can’t be adjusted to or learned. These are electric motors and provide instant torque. It was very manageable after a few passes. Turning is not an issue, just be easy on the controls and don’t overreact. Charger while charging does appear to get pretty warm so be careful on placement. Kept mine on the concrete floor as seen in picture. This thing is very quiet while in operation. I was able to talk to my 4 year old son on his tractor riding next to me as I was cutting and we could talk. Amazing!

        Poor quality control
        A great concept, but quality control issues mean I'm sending it back. The mower itself is well built, and feels solid. Lacks a little bit of pace (topping at 6mph), wish it had a faster transport mode like some competitors. It is a pleasure to use towing a garden cart around, so quiet and no fumes to deal with. The downfall of this machine for me is that the mower deck I received had the attachment holes for the discharge chute drilled in the wrong place. After many days of back and forth with Cub Cadet support, they told me I'd need to bring it to a certified dealer in order to fix the deck. They couldn't tell me immediately where the nearest dealer is, since they need to be able to work on these new electric machines. So, brand new machine, manufactured incorrectly, and now my responsibility to cart it to a dealer (that they can't identify yet). I'm cutting my losses and sending it back. Wanted to love this machine, but I didn't sign up for this much hassle just to get it working right off the bat. Other impressions, deck is a bit flimsy, and since you aren't supposed to use water to wash it off I have concerns about long term durability/rust. The motors for drive units are a bit jerky, especially at low speeds, so expect a steep learning curve and use the turtle mode around obstacles. I still think these electric mowers are the future, but be prepared for some growing pains if you pull the trigger as an early adopter.

          So far, so good
          The mower arrived yesterday, well-crated and in good shape. Final assembly was easy and quick, no more than 5 minutes or so. The hardest part was getting it off of the pallet and craft without hitting the deck. We were able to do it, using 2 guys in the front, lifting up the front section, while one pushed from the rear (make sure to disengage the parking brake!) I did not have any errors as others have described when attempting to use the mower for the first time. The mower arrived in a low state of charge, so I allowed it to fully charge before moving the unit. The drive mechanism is a bit "jerky" when first engaging. Perhaps there will be an update to smooth out the power curve, but it's not that bad and I'm sure we'll adapt to it quickly. Overall, I'm impressed so far. Time will tell how this holds up, but I'll take a few growing pains to not have to deal with small-engine maintenance.

            After calibrating, it works perfectly, super easy to control (even on high speed to get it out to where i was mulching) and really quiet when not running the blades.

                Terrible Steering
                This mower is so jerky it’s undriveable. Will there be a fix for it? Battery is good and machine is well built but you almost cannot steer it close to any yard object. Wondering if they will have a fix for it. Literally cannot mow my yard.

                  Follow up to Unhappywife!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wrote a review on Sunday. On Monday I went in and talked with several managers and their attitude was completely different than the conversation my wife had on Sunday. They accepted the return of the 42" electric 0-turn in exchange for a gas 50" 0-turn Cub Cadet plus credited us for the difference in the cost. I really liked the electric except for the handling problem. It seemed like the two electric powered gear motors were having a conflict and it kept jerking the mower left and right. this would occur going straight or while trying to maneuver around obstacles. It was very noticeable in turtle mode when trying to edge along the fence and walls.
