Used my ZTX5 60" twice so far. It's a beast of a machine. I do wish I could turn the lights off - might add my own toggle switch.

Wish I had purchased this unit sooner as it cut my operation time by more than 60%. Cutting 7 to 8 acres, it covers my needs with ease! The longevity is yet to be determined as it is only a few months old. I have the upmost confidence in this mower.

I had researched many zero turns over the past few months but the Cub Cadet Ultima ZTX5 with it's full tubular frame and front suspension really stood out from the crowd. A finely built machine, very smooth operation and with the 60 inch 10 gauge fabricated cutting deck it makes short work of my mowing with manicured results.
Cleanup is a breeze after use. With the easy lift and removal floor plate, thumb screw pulley cover and sealed design, dirt and grass can't hide.
Love the thick rubber discharge chute, high back seat and fuel gauge.
I highly recommend this mower for anyone with acreage that wants to keep it looking great.
