Questions & Answers

Will it mow in reverse or do I have to turn the blades off each time?

Yes, it can mow in reverse, but exercise extreme caution when doing so.

How do you remove the blades they are on so tight I cant remove them.
Asked by: willie
Hi! I just replaced my stock blades with mulcher blades. I have a half inch socket wrench, and I used a regular hammer on the socket handle. It only took about 3 strikes to loosen the bolts. Be careful and make sure the blades are wedged solid. This blades are SHARP!!!

Will this mower fit through a 48 inch gate?
Asked by: Bob
Yes, I bought this one because I have 48 inch gates. I put the mulch package on it so the side discharge is not there and it fits with about an inch or two on each side. If you leave the discharge chute on you can swivel it up to make it through the gate.

can it mow in revers
Asked by: guven
Yes, I do it several times each mowing. Just set the key in the proper position and hold the button until the light comes on. However, sometimes the light turned off and when I reversed the engine shut down. Noticed last time that I sometimes bump my right knee against the key, so I don't think it's the mower's fault.

Cub Cadet XT1 Enduro Series LT 42 in. 547 cc Fuel Injected Hydrostatic Gas Lawn Tractor with Push Button Start and Cub Connect App is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 2192.

While the mower does a good job of mowing my 1/3 acre yard, I must say it is extremely NOISY compared to other brands! I have used the mower for less than 15 hours and mowing before writing this review. Initially, I thought I needed to get used to a bit higher noise level compared to a self-propelled walking mower but, that's not the case. My neighbor too commented that the mower was noisy and they could hear the noise from inside their home. After my neighbor complained, I closely observed and specifically listened to other mower brands in the neighborhood. I now realize that the mower is indeed extremely noisy. I've called Home Depot wanting to return this mower for some other brand which is quieter but Home Depot refused since it was almost 120 days of the purchase date (normal return is within 90 days). Could / Home Depot or Cub Cadet address this issue and arrange for a return and with a full refund? I'm disappointed with the mower on this aspect.

Tractor was delivered July 1 2019 ... mowed lawn 4 or 5 times (seemed fine) ... then on Aug 28 2019 engine stopped and will not restart. It is past 30 days so Home Depot will not support. Calls into Kohler & Cub Cadet but they will not re-open until after Labor Day. We will see if they support their product. In any case, there is no excuse for a product costing $1800 to stop working after 4 uses! I've had $200 lawn mowers that lasted 6 or 7 years. Sooooo frustrating!

I purchased and pick the item up the same day. Once I got it home I opened up the plastic folder attached to the Cub and found it sopping wet. All document needed to be dried out. Next I noticed was the steering wheel off center. After adding fuel and some oil, it was low, I started the mower. Put the deck down halfway, tried to put the blades into motion and realized that the handle was bent inward so it wouldn't go past the the deck lowering handle. I made the repairs. I now have a few hours on the mower and it's fantastic. More than I can say about the way HD store prepped and handled this unit before I bought it. I also had an issue using gift cards to help with my purchase. When you use the 10% off offer they mail to good customers, you can't use a gift card to pay any extra on it?! I had to put the remaining balance on my HD card. I was told the I couldn't combine any offers together? WHEN IS A GIFT CARD AN OFFER????? I give the store a 3 for there handling of the equipment and corporate a 1.

First my pulley gaurds sheared off and then with about 50 hours on my LT42 mower the idler pulley froze up and ripped my deck putting my mower unusable. . Beings how it was only about a year old i figured Home Depot or Cub Cadet would warranty this item with the 3 year warranty.. I called Osage Beach Home Depot (3) times and finally got put through to a manager who informed me i needed to call Cub Cadet.. Now after having my mower hauled to Camdenton they say it's (surprise) my fault. Cub Cadet says (by photo might i add) That my blade broke and went through the deck and i should have changed them sooner.. It really seems i would have known if my blade went through the deck and its funny that it didn't hurt anything else beings so close to the blade tower... Who changes blades 2 and 3 times a year to mow their lawn??? Any way that was a $1600 experience i will never do again...

I've had this tractor since Fall of 2018 and have the mulch kit installed...I've looked at a lot of reviews including Consumer Reports (which I no longer consult) and this tractor seemed like a good value for the price...this tractor has the automatic transmission and a mow backwards feature among other things...the Cub Cadet is a little larger in overall size than my last MTD tractor but I've gotten used to it and overall the tractor is okay but not great...the plastic hood does not bother me but what does is it will not mulch very well if going a little too fast...I'm talking a little faster than slow...the mulching plug is a very poor design for Cub Cadet and needs to be removed and cleaned after every mowing...the tractor starts fine but when I pause to apply full power before engaging the blades the engine runs a little rough and runs rougher after engaging the blades...so I have to wait until the engine smooths out, sometimes backing off the throttle, before beginning to mow...if I had to buy another tractor at this time I'd consider some other brands.

After performing all of the pre-start checks and filled with gas, the engine fired right up and I kept the speed at near idle, varying the throttle for the first 10 minutes or so. The next day my first mow was a joy. My last lawn tractor was in the early 80's and it is a real pleasure to not have to shift a gear lever. The Hydro-static transmission is crisp and responsive with a "neutral brake" at no pedal push which may take getting used to as the sureness of the brakes kick in if the "gas" pedal is released too quickly. I did find that the deck height maximum measured only about 3 3/4" and not the 4 inches promised. I adjusted the two rear deck level adjustments to their max lift without the deck lift bar hitting the underside of both the left and right foot areas. The deck height is now capable of a 4 inch setting which St. Augustine grass likes. I am still in the learning curve as to finding cutting routes and trying to keep cutting in forward directions and minimizing the backing up. The build quality is of very heavy - thick steel with extra safe, rolled under fender edges that add to provide additional fender support. I can recommend this Cub Cadet XT1 LT42 as the initial build quality and operation is smooth....

I've mowed my acre of lawn several times now (14 hrs. operating time) and am very satisfied with the XT1 TL42. One WARNING though: Definitely check the oil level and tire pressure before operating the machine. Also a good idea to check deck/blade level. I bought my LT42 new/assembled at the local Home Depot. The oil level was half way between the full and add marks; front tire pressure in both tires was 25 psi - max pressure is stated as 14 psi; rear tire pressure was 30 psi in one tire and 20 psi in the other - max pressure is stated as 10 psi. That aside, I definitely recommend this lawn tractor: It is easy to operate; deck leveling and removal is very easy; changing the oil and filter is very easy; after mowing, the grass is very nicely/thoroughly removed from under the deck using the deck/hose flushing connector; engine power (18 hp) is very good in mowing my southern lawn (Common bermuda and fescue).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best option for the money I bought this mower after my late 80's Craftsman started having a 2nd motor failure. I only have a 1/2 acre lot, but I also needed the mower to pull my aerator around a few times per year. I have used the mower for 1 season now, and REALLY like it. I haven't suffered from the bouncy seat issue, probably because I'm 300lbs. The reverse switch is no issue because, despite was some on here say, you don't have to press a switch every time you back up in order to cut in reverse. You just have to press it again if you do something like restart the engine or trip the seat safety switch. The lack of a headlight switch is no issue either because they are LEDs and will last almost forever. The only issue I've had is that I'm starting to get a little squeaking in the steering column when I'm turning. A little lube at the right point should fix that though. It had no problem at all pulling my big behind and almost 200lbs worth of aerator up and down my sloped front yard as long as it could get traction.
