My First Zero Turn
I purchased my first zero turn after many years of owning a lawn tractor. The 42 inch ZT1 is a awesome performing mower. It handles well, cuts great with the mulch blades and mulch plug installed. Easy to start. This mower makes cutting grass a pleasure instead of a weekly chore.

Pretty fast good machine Ron Smoove take half of the time and do the whole grass

Great machine
I bought this last year and and have used it for mowing (obviously) and spreading fertilizer and other lawn feed. Its comfortable to operate and cuts evenly. I wish it would go a little faster but that probably says more about me than it does about the machine. I bought an ATV spreader and adapted it to fit on the machine and it works so much better than a tow behind spreader because I can operate the spreader opening without turning and reaching.

Happy 1st Time Cub Owner
This is my first Cub Cadet product and so far I’m very pleased with it. This is also my first ZTR Mower. The quality of the ZT1 50 is very impressive. It has a look and feel of raw power and it performs amazingly! Seriously, I will likely never go back to a traditional mower and now that I’m familiar with Cub Cadet products, I can appreciate that the mowers I‘ve had in the past just weren’t all they were cracked up to be. Nice Job Cub Cadet Team! My only regret is not buying the Cub Cadet Trailer to go with it... :)

Missing bolt on the rollover frame after 6 hrs
After 6 hrs of use I noticed a bolt missing in the frame supposedly vibrated out. I am not happy with this missing bolt as it will lead to the value of my mower to greatly be negatively affected. I don’t know where I could source one without taking another bolt out and trying to match it at a hardware store. I will send picture of location of the screw hole. It is obvious that one was there previously because of the scratches it left in the paint when it was originally tightened. I would appreciate someone responding to this and assisting me to replace the missing bolt.

More to be desired!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Let's see... I have used this mower four times now and have put 11.6 hours on it. Okay let's start with looks.. it is hands down the best looking mower out there, besides the spartan mowers. Good power from the Kawasaki motor. Its pretty quiet. Its quick. Turns well. Seat is comfy... Now the bad.. the deck has a lot of vibration which is not something I like at all.. the head lights need a toggle switch. The gas tank needs a fill level indicator of some sort because you literally have to pull the seat over or open the gas cap to see the fuel level, which you can not do while on the mower. The oil changes are messy not because of the oil plug because they actually put a tube which makes that part pretty easy.. but the oil filter is a huge mess to change and not very well thought out. The choke lever is in the wrong location. Every time I go to pull the PTO I catch myself wanting to pull the choke and have to hunt for it.. and the blades are definitely not the best because you have to mow the same area twice.. Now over all.. It's an attractive mower that is worth the money. And I would buy it again.. I probably wouldn't recommend to a friend because of the bad things about this mower. But if its reliable then I would definitely recommend this.. but i only have used it 11.6 hours.. so time will tell..

ZT1 50 is EXCELLENT!
After a couple of weeks of research on various mowers I decided to go with the ZT1 50. It was delivered Friday 5/22/20 & used the mower over the weekend. After 6 hrs of use I am very satisfied! I read about certain issues with the deck vibrating while the PTO is engaged; I did NOT experience this issue. I cut about 3.5 acres & this mower definitely cut my time in half. I have uneven terrain with slopes/hills & several trees. It maneuvered so smoothly & was a joy to operate. The design & features are definitely an A-plus in my book. I will update review in a few months. Thanks, Cub Cadet for such an awesome mower!

Great mower. Fairly easy to set up, you will need some tools and patience. Operates smoothly with little effort. I have advanced arthritis throughout my body, but I still enjoy being outside, cutting grass. I was having trouble with steering a conventional rider. This mower allows me to still feel active and stay in the driver's seat. The mower could use arm rests on the seat making it even easier and more comfortable than it is to operate. I would also recommend the sliding seat for this model, just make it a little nicer. I am sore after cutting, but I am sore just sitting around. Might as well have some fun:-) This is!!!!! Heavily constructed and well made. Rolls easily for tight storage. I have mowed twice on 2 gallons of gas, 1/4 acre yard. I am well pleased with my purchase.
