Answer

Hello, Reginald. The ZTX4 54 does not have multiple color options. Thank you for your question.

how heavy a trailer can it pull?

Asked by Gregor June 20, 2020
1
Answer

As a general rule of thumb, using a single-axle trailer and a properly maintained and adjusted tractor, you should be able to pull approximately half the weight of the tractor minus the operator weight fairly safely and with control over level ground and over slopes less than 5 degrees. Your mower weighs 925 lbs. Thank you for your question.

Is this able to be used commercially?

Asked by slicklandcaperdude June 14, 2020
1
Answer

Hello. The ZTX4 48 is not approved for commercial use. Thank you for your question.

Why is this rated a residential mower if the engine, transmission, frame and deck are commercial grade?

Asked by Crazy4mowers June 14, 2020
1
Answer

Hello, Crazy4mowers. We designed the ZTX4 48 to be a step between residential and commercial mowers. Because this is designed as a step between the 2 it does not come with everything required for the daily use of a commercial mower. You will notice an increased 4-year, 500-hour warranty on this model compared to the standard 3 years for residential models because of the upgraded features. Thank you for your question.

Very well built machine. Handles tall grass with minimal choke out. Most comfortable seat of any lawn mower I’ve ever owned.
by JAMES
Great mower but little under powered
Mower is great for the money. Worked at john deere 15 years and cub cadet makes a very good equivalent mower for the money. Very comfortable ride and seems very durable. Only thing id change is floating front axle instead of rigid and for the size of the mower 3 to 5 extra hp wouldn’t hurt. My yard has very thick grass and also few extra grease zerks for front spindle

This is a fantastic machine to operate. It leaves the lawn looking manicured. The only problem was that the battery was not connected and they were no instructions as to connecting it. As such, it took considerable time to get the machine ready for use. After paying a very considerable sum for the machine, one would have expected it to be ready to be used at the time of delivery.

Be Aware Warranty Issue
Be aware, not all the service shops listed on Cub Cadet website accept the warranty. You will be stuck and not knowing where to fix it. I called many places and they either don’t accept the warranty or they are too busy, and put you way behind on the waiting list.

I purchased this model cub cadet for my farm. I spent a few days researching and reading reviews and opted for this one and I’m happy I did. My farm terrain is a little rough and this mower handles it with no problem. Clean, even cut, great speed and very comfortable. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a game changing mower.

We've used this Cub Cadet Ultima ZTX4 60 in. Fabricated Deck 24 HP Kohler Pro 7000 Series V-Twin Engine Zero Turn Mower with Roll Over Protection three times since receiving it.It is working well thus far. And, it has preformed as advertised on the three times that we've used it. We gave it four stars because this Cub Cadet arrived with a left front flat tire. The tire continues to lose air and we have to pump it up all over again for each time that we've used the mower. Eventually, we are going to have to pull the wheel and take it into a tire shop and have it fixed (providing that they can fix it). And, the crating has MUCH to be desired.Otherwise, we are fairly happy with the machine thus far. In fact, one of the nice things was that despite what you see on YouTube, there was nothing to do but turn the ROPs up and lock it in, check the oil, fill with gas and begin mowing. Hence, a 4 Star from us. :)

Definitely much more durable thus far from our other mower. Little tricky to get use to if you have never used one. The bars that move you foraward and backward are not even and one is more forward than the other no matter how you adjust it. Their is no evening them out, but not a deal breaker.
