Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some issues but works OK I purchased this mower in May, 2019, and wanted to use it regularly before writing a review. What attracted me is the width of cut and the fact that it's at least loosely based upon the original TroyBilt Widecut mower first sold in the mid-1990s. I had one of the TroyBilt mowers, liked it, but traded it in for a commercial mower after moving to a much larger property. For my current 1/2 acre lawn which is rather rough, this mower is the best type I've found. I bought the CC800 at a reduced priced because it was returned by someone due to the fact that the front casters were "frozen" and wouldn't turn. I spent several hours breaking the rusted spindles loose and found that there apparently had been no grease applied at the factory. After that problem was resolved the mower worked as designed. I like the large rear wheels and casters in front, the positive drive (as compared to mowers that "go" at your pace) the width of cut, the engine power, the mulching which isn't the best but is OK, and the way the handle bars are designed and the available height adjustment. Also like the fact that this model has recoil backup for the electric start which the previous model, cc760, did not have. The features I don't care for but aren't show stoppers are, first, the fact that the wheel engaging lever is above the handle rather than below. Much more convenient to squeeze a lever than to have to press down first. Second, I wish there were an interlock between wheel engagement and blade engagement as there is on my snow blower, so that I could release one hand without stopping. Third, it's my impression that the C-channel frame from which the deck is suspended and to which the caster wheels are mounted is not as rugged as the solid bar frame on the old TroyBilt. Finally, the fact that the chute deflector cannot be removed when the mulch plug is installed is annoying. There should be another device offered to hold the mulch plug that does not point upward and to the side of the deck Things that I don't like are, foremost, the transmission. I'd like to be able to upshift on the go as was possible with the TroyBilt. The detents for the gears should be farther apart and much more definite. The shifter would be much more convenient if mounted on the console rather than near the ground. There is too much differential in ground speed between 3rd gear and 4th. This is subjective, but 3rd is a little too slow for my gait, and 4th is much too fast for use on the size lawn that I have. I think the Peerless transmission on the TroyBilt was better. If Cub Cadet really wanted a super 33" mower they would offer a hydrostatic option. Second, just philosophically, I dislike having to purchase equipment with key mechanicals (transmission and engine) made in China. No real track record; how long will these components last?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very upset ... This starts by going to Tractor Supply to buy a mower, I wanted the cc600 which was not available, I was told there was a CC800 available but it had front wheel issues do to being stored outside in front of the store. I said ok I’m interested when can it be here, several weeks later and me buying a smaller mower to get me by it showed up, I bought it,rented a trailer and brought it home. Very excited to have purchased a mower that would cut my mowing time down by quite a bit I started mowing that very night. It worked awesome, The day I was determined to finish the rest even though it’s very hot out.. My lawn never looked so good.. I had one small spot to do, started my NEW mower and it. Wouldn’t move. When it did it made a grinding rattling sound.. It was returned with approx. 3 hrs on the machine... I’m beefing told now it could be weeks till I see it again or I can have my money back.. What a wanted was to mower that I could trust to mow my lawn with more than once... I just trashed another brand because it only mowed my lawn 5times before the start ever time mower would no longer start... I’m in quality for a living and I’m so glad I don’t work for Cub.. I’m hoping they will call me and tell me there’s a screw loose and it’s not in my head... If it works when it comes back I will up date this if possible...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Home Owner Push Mower I just bought this mower, and overall I am happy with it. I wanted something bigger than the standard 21" or 22" push mowers, and there are not a lot of options out there I found. I was considering the CC 600 with 28" deck, but decided on this one not because of the extra 5" of cutting width, but because It just seemed like a better machine. PROS: 1) Larger rear tires and larger front casters than the smaller 28" CC 600, and other similar competitor mowers. 2) Single lever height adjustment. Much easier than having to adjust each will indecently like most push mowers. 3) Larger 2 gallon gas tank (in contrast with the very tiny gas tank on the CC 600) etc. 4) Electric start (not necessary, but nice to have) 5) 33" cutting deck. 6) Reverse (main benefit for me with this feature is makes it easier to load / unload into a truck bed using ramps) CONS: 1) As others have mentioned, the 2 levers do seem stiff to operate. 2) I do not like that it is not variable speed. This makes it difficult to navigate around objects, or just to slow down a little when needed. Its go or stop. No in between.This causes the front end of the mower to want to pop up and do a wheelie when you start to go forward, and it also makes it real hard to come to a stop when in 4th gear on the way back to the garage, or wherever, as the thing just abruptly stops when you let go of the handle. . 3) 3 1/2" is the highest deck height setting. Which isn't horrible, but I find it odd they wouldn't have designed it to go up to at least 4" (so when you have gone too long in between mowings and your grass is really tall, you may need that taller setting to knock it down). Minor detail, but worth noting 4) It is fairly easy to maneuver around the yard, make turns etc., but it is kind of difficult to manage around objects (trees, lamp posts, swing sets, etc.) Again, this is where the lack of variable speeds comes into play. You are cruising along in 3rd gear, and if you need to make a tight 360 degree circle around an object, you basically need to stop, drop down to 1st or 2nd gear to mow around object, stop again to shift back into 3rd, and continue on. The other option is to just let go of the drive lever and manually man handle it around the object, which works, but does take some effort. Luckily, I do not have that many objects to mow around, but if you have a lot of trees, or water ever, to mow around, I could see this being very tiresome with this mower. Overall however, when compared to the limited # of other options within this price range and cutting deck width, It is a great mower for residential use. it is NOT a commercial mower, and it is not marketed as such. It may have the look of a small commercial type mower, but it does not handle / function as one. It is really more of walk behind push mower on steroids, which for my purposes, that is really all I needed. Something to cut a bigger swath on each pass so I don't have to spend as much time mowing. And it does that just fine. For a homeowner who wants something bigger than the standard push mower, but does not want a rider, or to spend the money on a commercial grade walk behind, this fits the bill pretty nice. My biggest gripe, as already mentioned twice in my CONS section, is the lack of variable speed. It doesn't have to be hydrostatic, but it would just be nice if you had SOME speed control based on how much, or how little, you squeezed the handle. That ONE detail alone would make this a MUCH better mower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Initial Quality Issue & Improvement Suggestions In general, I’m pleased with the features and performance of the CC800. It replaced a 33” mower from another manufacturer that I had been using for the past 15 years. The cutting height adjustment feature is very convenient to use, and the twin-blade mower deck provides for a clean and even cut…better than the triple-blade deck on my old mower. However, after only three hours of mowing the cutting blades stopped working. I removed the cover on the mower deck and discovered that the bellcrank that actuates the rotation of the blades had come loose from its mounting point. It was obvious that the nut required to secure the bolt that holds the bellcrank in place had not been installed during assembly in the factory. After a trip to the hardware store to purchase a lock nut, I was able to put everything back together again in working order. I also have a couple of suggestions for Cub Cadet to improve the CC800: add a cup holder near the control panel to accommodate a water bottle, and replace the lever that controls the mower movement with a trigger that can be actuated from the bottom of the handle bar with your fingers…this would vastly improve the user’s ability to finesse the movement of the mower when negotiating tight turns and going around obstacles in the lawn. The current lever is clumsy to use and puts a strain on your wrist with repetitive actuation. I’m also leery of the three thinner cables attached to the control levers, because I’m afraid that they will fatigue very quickly and break.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so hot 5 weeks in and only 4 hours on the machine and the transmission is out!...attempted to call service, only to be on hold for 20 minutes. Poor quality and poor service. Taking this mower back to Home Depot and chalking Cub Cadet up as a loss...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds I bought this mower about a month ago and my yard is about an acre. I’ve had lawn tractors since buying this property and wanted a zero turn mower. After realizing a zero turn wasn’t in the budget I went to my local lawn equipment dealer to learn what other options were out there. They introduced me to larger deck walk behind mowers with casters on the front, which allow the mower to behave like a zero turn. One of the models they showed me was the CC800. I’m glad they did. The mow job takes less time than with my old tractor, thanks to the maneuverability and versatility of this machine. Plus, walking behind the mower is good for me. I get some exercise while I effortlessly cut my grass. The engine is super powerful. All of this said, operating the mower takes a little getting used to. The controls are very similar to a snow blower. After reading other reviews that pointed out the potential quality issue with the drive-lever-cable, I checked it as soon as I picked up the mower. I do agree, it looks like a better quality cable could have been used, however we’ll see how long it lasts. I love the cut quality and I enjoy cutting my grass. I have the benefits of a walk behind and a zero turn.
