This is my 4 year review. I now have 150 hours on the mower. I am really sorry I bought it The first year I had 7 flats on the 2 ply tires. I have not seen two ply tires since 1965 . The blades are cheap and do not last for 1 year. You have to buy a mower jack to change them. Today the metal outer shell of the mower completely tore apart under my seat.. See photo. I only weigh 200 pounds and have used it only on my 1 acre lot. I do not abuse the mower or have a lot of pot wholes. I called Warranty Service they assured me it was out of warranty and it was my fault anyway. It could not possibly have been their fault.

    First of all it drives like a Cadillac with power steering, which is very good for me since I had both of my arms broken a few years a go. I drove it with one hand using just my palm of my hand turning it left & right & tight turns too. It worked wonderful. It has easy access to gas and to add or change oil. I didn't have any cutting marks after the grass was cut, it made my 1 acre yard look good. The only thing that I really didn't like much was that the top & side panels were plastic. The only reason for that is, what would happen if I hit something with it? Like would it crack?. So I don't have an answer to that. I love that it drive like a car, but will get use to it with use of it and it will go fast so play nice with your pedal. Compare to my old mower that I had to use the manual shift and reverse without an adjustable seat and took to hands with great might to drive it, The cub Cadet is 1000% better to use and drive. I would recommend it for anyone wanting a mower in that price range.

      I purchased this CUB CADET XT1 Enduro Series LT 42 in. 18 HP Kohler Hydrostatic Gas Front-Engine ...
      I purchased this CUB CADET XT1 Enduro Series LT 42 in. 18 HP Kohler Hydrostatic Gas Front-Engine Riding Lawn Tractor on 9-1-2019 after a lengthy search for a new mower. I decided on this model for the exceptional value packed into the unit compared to other models of the same size. I extensively read the reviews on all models and kept coming back to this mower. The hydrostatic drive is a must-have and is easy enough to operate for the whole family to use. The mow in reverse feature saves a huge headache when cutting in tight spaces and reduces the foul language when using my older mower. The deck body is noticeably thicker and the mower sits well with the adjustable seat. No bolts to loosen to adjust the seat position. A nice touch here. The hour meter is helpful for scheduled maintenance and keeps the guesswork out of it. The unit came with the 5400 series improved Kohler motor for less worry and failures. The three year warranty finalized the deal for me. I am very happy with my decision and expect many years of great service. I would like to offer a few tips in your purchase decision and ownership: 1. The unit was delivered in a timely manner and saved me the headache of a pick up. 2. Some customers have had a difficult time uncrating this unit. Simply removed all screws with a 1/4 inch drill attachment, Lift off the top and the hammer off 4 side panels. Cut the 4 large pull ties for shipping and with help pull the mower slowly off while holding the wheel straight. I am using the wood to build bird houses and for kindling. Added bonus from choosing shipping. 3. The assembly of the mower is simple and the well illustrated instructions are spot on. Ladies: go tell the man to sit down-you got this! My daughter assembled this unit in 15 minutes and enjoyed it. Pay close attention to the steering wheel installation as it is a bear to remove if not oriented to the straight wheel direction. The bolt has lock sealant on the threads so get it right the first time. 4. Check the oil on a level ground! My unit was full to the correct level. Adjust and check the plug for leaks and closed position. 5. I noticed a lot of reviewers complained of the air pressure in the tires being too high and inconsistent. The over inflated tires help with shipping and unloading heights. A simple correction and fix with a tire gauge. The pressures are listed on the tires. Always maintain correct pressure for and even cut and tire wear. This applies to all brands. 6. My deck height was correct when measured on a concrete floor and the adjustment is simple for those with a little mechanical ability. he deck adjustment are in the manual. This should always be maintained on any mower. 7. The most important tip I think I can offer is to carefully inspect the complete mower once assembled. Check every nut and bolt and most reachable parts for correct fit and operation. This familiarizes one to his/her mower and helps to understand its function. THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR AND BRAND MOWER YOU SELECT. This check can identify loose bolts , wires, clips and leaks before using the mower and avoids a return or premature service call. Mowers are assembled by highly trained individuals but errors can be overlooked and things can be rattled during shipping. Sometimes a snug here and there is all that is needed. This applies to anything brand. 8. The deck has a washable deck connector for cleaning up after use. It works, but it is important to note that the deck spindles should not get wet and stored. This is for all mower spindles. The bearings in the spindles can rust from prolonged sitting and premature wear and failure can result. After cleaning any deck- sit on the mower away from people and engage the blades for a few minutes to dry out residual spindle moisture. Spindle repairs are costly. 9. Leaving any mower outside uncovered is inviting trouble not to mention theft. Electrical components and key switches do not take water well. Shorts happen. Also, water and pullies, deck spindles dont mesh. Cover your unit. The bag that came with the new mower serves this purpose well and The Home Depot offers many mower covers for purchase. This is a large investment. Proper maintenance and care is paramount to its long life. Any mowers life! 10. I cant say this enough. If you "mow and go" in a hurry things happen. Mowing in a hurry (which we are all guilty of) causes accidents with hitting objects, damages parts on mower, prematurely wears the mower out faster and is unsafe around people and animals. Slow down and enjoy the mow. Take it all in and smell the fresh cut grass. Use common sense here. 11. Riding kids on mowers is foolish. Even with deck not engaged. Young kids are attracted to mowers and find them interesting and run after them. Make it a policy (like moving cars in the yard) make sure kids stay in the house and are supervise from shooting out the door. Mowers can create horrible injuries. This CUB CADET XT1 Enduro Series LT 42 in. 18 HP Kohler Hydrostatic Gas Front-Engine Riding Lawn Tractor is a quality product from a Brand we know and trust. Very happy with my decision! Thanks for reading.

        My husband and I have had a Cub Cadet for many years and it was time to get something new. The Zero-turn was very enticing for my husband and he really wanted one however we did our research and realized that a riding mower is best for hills. We have a large hill in our backyard and so we got a new Cub Cadet. We were quite surprised and ecstatic to see how tight the turning radius is. The other feature that we really like is that you can set the blade to continue mowing while going backwards. This makes smaller areas easy to mow. The ride is another wonderful feature. Smooth. My husband also likes the transmission. Smooth. We looked at Husqvarna, Troy Built, John Deere and Craftsman. Went with what we had because it worked so well. Oh by the way, the old Cub Cadet is still working and mowing a 4 acre yard.

        Very good quality mower. Easy to use. Plenty fast enough if you need speed. Cut is perfect. I like that the grass cut height (deck adjustment) lever is marked in inches and not just numbers. The PTO lever is well placed on the right side of the seat. There are a lot accessories available from Cub Cadet for this tractor and they are reasonably priced (Grass Catcher Bag, Snow Blower, Plow, etc.). Don't like the headlights being on all the time, so I used the cut out provided in the dashboard to install an on/off switch for these lights. Easy to do. I've owned this mower for most of the summer now. Cut is way better than any walk behind I've ever used.
