I purchased this mower after I had to return the Weibang e-rider twice, you can read my review of the Weibang under that item. For this review, I will compare the two to help those who may be deciding which one to purchase. Packing: both were packaged well; however, the Cub cadet was more difficult to get off the shipping pallet. We had to lift it up vs push it off because of the plastic and blocks underneath. Size: both are small riding mowers but the Cub Cadet's seat is up higher which allows for better visibility but also makes it appear bigger, more sturdy than the Weibang. Charger: the Weibang's charger is smaller and enclosed similar to a laptop charger, the Cub Cadet's charger is not. I don't know how to describe it except it is a metal grid out of space looking thing about 2X the size of the Weibang's charger that needs to factor into your location; however, it can be mounted. Charge: the Cub Cadet charges quicker but I feel the Weibang lasts longer on a single charge. I'm able to cut my ~1/2 acre lot almost twice on a single charge with the Weibang but I'm having to charge the Cub cadet at the end of a single mowing. Cut quality: this is where the extra money comes into play. The Cub Cadet's cut is smooth like butter! I cut my lawn every week. I was never that impressed with the cut quality of the Weibang but it was passable. Don't know how Cub cadet does it with a single blade vs two on the Weibang but they have produced a mower that cuts beautifully. There was no lapse in time with my cutting schedule. Even though the Cub cadet has 4 or 5 cutting height levels and Weibang has 8 or 10, I can't remember, I cut my lawn on the highest level, the Cub cadet cut my lawn even!! I kept stopping and checking the blade height because I could not believe how clean and level the cuts looked. It feels more powerful than the Weibang and subsequently it's louder but not gas level loud. And most people probably won't notice a difference. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't mulch as well as the Weibang but I think that's because it is cutting more grass too. I plan on purchasing the bagger for this because unlike the Weibang, this comes with a lot of accessories (and the power to be able to use them). I have used the Cub cadet for a month and the only issue I had was when I lowered the blade and too much grass caused it to stall and beep at me. I used my blower to clear the grass and I was back in business. If you are deciding between the Cub cadet or Weibang, spend the extra money and go with the Cub cadet.
The reliability is not there for the Weibang and the cut quality is not comparable to that of the Cub Cadet's. I always described the Weibang as cute and others would ask me all the time, when did you buy a golf cart? The Cub Cadet will never be mistaken for a golf cart. As someone recently mentioned to us, it's about time you got a real riding lawnmower!!
