    A:  Yes - it does come with highlights blades

    by|Oct 9, 2022

      A:  ? Bought Bagger Attachment = new blades included? = No... strictly Hi-Lift Blade Set is NOT included w/ Bagger. " COMBO / 2-in-one" blade set comes with new mowers ...strictly Hi-Lift must be purchased separately and installed after delivery.

        A:  I bought the bagger attachment also. About to start my second season of leaves, but so far no problems. The blades appear to be high-lift on mine as far as I can tell.

        by|Oct 31, 2022

          A:  Hi Dave. The Cub Cadet XT1 Enduro LT 46 in. 22 HP V-Twin Kohler 7000 Series Engine Hydrostatic Drive Gas Riding Lawn Mower comes standard with 2-in-1 blades, useful for side discharge as well as bagging. Thank you for your question.

          by|Sep 16, 2022

            A:  Don’t have the bagger attachment, so I have the blades that came with the mower. This mower will go through any height grass like it isn’t even there. I have yet to exceed its power to mow.

                      Great Mower
                      I just purchased my Cub about six weeks ago. Great powerful ride with an incredible tight turn radius. My only complaint is how easy my knee hits the ignition key and turns it off.

                      Great Machine
                      Assembly was straight forward and painless. After checking all fluids, pins, etc, some gas and fired right up. What use to take over an hour with the old 30 inch cutter now takes 20 minutes with far less gas consumption.

                        I'm happy
                        This is a replacement for a 25 year old Murray rider.Delivered in a crate.I had watched all the unbox and first start videos on YouTube.I bought 3 gallons of unleaded gas where the hot rodders get theirs. I reset all tire pressures,check the oil and put the few parts on.Started right up and I drove it out back to get use to it.Turns are a lot faster.Drives like a car.Very easy to get use too.I got the grass bagger.WOW,very easy to put on and remove for cleaning.Mowed the lawn a few days later.Very happy with the whole setup.I am very glad that I got it shipped to my house.Did not want a store model that everybody has sat in and beat the controls.

                          Got it delivered it had some paint issues on mower deck and wheel was rubbing on discharge should. If I hit a small bump it would shut mower off. And I'm 155 pounds. The seat safety is overly sensitive. Also seat hurts my back. My old cub doesn't do any of these things.

                          Serious towing power!
                          This is a great lawn mower. However, I have used it to move heavy loads of wood and dirt in my yard. This weekend I poured 2 cubic yards of concrete mix using my pull behind trailer to transport the concrete to the porch I am building behind my house. Each load was nearly 800 lbs! Not was these things were designed for but, man, did it get the job done!!

                            Cuts well, easily adjustable cut and the hydrostatic transmission is quite fast.

                            Absolutely love it. What a high quality machine!
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Only mowed with it twice, but it has sold me. It is very nimble and quick (I upgraded from a 2004 Yard Man). When I say this I mean this: read your owners manual! You’ll find lots of good information. I was disappointed in how hard it was to find the recc. Tire pressures (mine had DOUBLE what’s recommended) and scalping wheel adjustment is important. I set mine on a flat concrete floor to my desired mowing height and set my wheels to 1/2-3/4” from the ground and it is perfect! I found the stock wheel color very off-putting so I separated the tires and wheels had them powder coated black. Also ordered the push bar and armrests. Those three things is (in my opinion) the way the tractor should have came stock.

                              Product was received curbside (as expected). Item was then unpacked and the loose parts assembled (seat, hood, steering wheel). I checked the oil and filled with gas. We started cutting the backyard and about three laps into the task, the two front wheels turned in opposite directions. Upon examination, it appears the nut on the bolt (attached to the right steering lever) behind the right tire had fallen off. Given that this occurred in the grass, the nut was not recovered. After 7 days, I now have a $1900 paper weight until I can find the appropriate nut to put on the bolt. This part was preassembled before delivery and I had no reason to check it. Thankfully nobody was hurt, and I now need to figure out the warranty piece of the problem.
