Product Reviews

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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted and more!! I was looking for a mower to tackle a very steep hill in my backyard. This hill is difficult to walk up let alone use a mower on it. Let me just say this mower will climb ANY hill you have and pull you right up as well. I weigh 290 lbs and it would drag me up the hill if I wanted it to. I'm serious! Going down the hill is a breeze too because the mower's speed is restricted to the gear it is in. If you put it in first gear down a hill it will go down it at a controlled pace. The mower did not bog down cutting tall grass either. The mower is reasonably quiet to be as big as it is. I like how it has an oil filter and draining the oil looks to be hassle free as well. This mower has a 3 year parts and labor warranty as well. Buy it from a dealer so you will get preferred service treatment on it as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerhouse of a mower I own the 760 model. First thing to do if you get one is replace all the factory belts with kevlar style. My first belt broke the second time I mowed with it and my yard is about a half acre. Get a set of gator blades, sharpen them and replace the originals; you will fear no yard. Order all new replacement cables and keep them on standby; mine started breaking the second year and its a pain to wait for replacements because they are not stocked locally. I blame cheap chinese steel for the bad cables. Regular maintenance and you will own a reliable lawn mower that makes quick work of the job and leaves a professional finish. I love the key start!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Beast This mower is a beast. I purchased this at the beginning of the season after my 48" pull behind mower desk started having issues, again. The desk was always having problems and I think I spent more time fixing it than mowing with it. After spending a couple hours pulling it behind my Kubota, I would need to push mow for another 2 hours to get the slopes. I had read that a powerful self propelled mower was the way to go for my type of property. I after conducting a lot of research I landed on the CC760 ES. When I go to the local dealer, they did not have the 760 in stock, but did have the CC 800. I don't like buying a product without reading reviews, but I decided to take the chance. I have not been disappointed. The mower is easy to start and operate. The propulsion is awesome. In first gear I can tackle the most difficult terrains with precision. It easily goes up some of the steep slopes and the lower gears provide great control for going down. Of course for safety reasons I mow across the slope as much as I can. The electronic starter is great. It immediately starts and runs very smoothly. My only criticisms are the design of the handles. I would rather have triggers rather than squeezing the control levers with my thumbs, and the gears are too close together. I have a difficult time telling whether I am in second or third gear until I start moving. 4th gear is ridicules. I almost need to run behind it in 4th. It is good for goin back up the more gentile slops though. I have not done any major maintenance on it yet, and may update my review once I do a good overhaul. It is a little heavy and has a punch when in 3rd of 4th gear, so I would not recommend it for someone without upper body strength. But for me it is perfect.

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?
