Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great , but controls are a little flaky I bought ZT1 42E from a local dealer about 3 weeks ago . I have a little under 1.5 acres of lawn , the cut is great battery was at 48% after about 1 hr run time. Only have one compliant about the controls sometimes i experience a slight hesitation when i push the control arms forward or pull back. Also had a large pile of leaves left from the fall , drove thru them to test the power of the blades with the bagger attached and this caused the blades motors to stop due to the motor overload fault switch. Made one modification on the bagger , i removed the nut and bolt that attached it and replaced it with a cotter pin

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Experience Just delivered today in a crate, took it off and put it together, back tire has a flat. Hole was discovered when I tried to add air. Then the charger will not charge, error code reads not compatible current? I have 120, that's what it calls for. Good luck reaching Cub-Cadet. I have been waiting for a call back for hours and text chat for an hour.... Home Depot was not any help either....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not take a charge. Unacceptable for the cost Machine delivered today. I am getting the same results with the charge. Error 061 which when I consult the charger manual it says it is an incompatible "current problem" and the charger defaults to an error and does not charge the machine. See photos. I called Cub Cadet today at 5:06 and they were closed. I paid $$$$$K for this machine. If this is not fixed with all haste, this machine goes back and I never buy another Cub Cadet product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible control, questionable battery life If you have 3/4 acre yard that is perfectly flat with no obstacles or curves and willing to mow in the slow turtle mode the entire time - than this expensive tractor is for you! The control is incredibly jerky and unresponsive (turtle or full speed) making this a terrible zero turn experience. I cannot get control to mow by my curved landscaping, or around my tree rings at all. I do have a hill in the back yard and cannot go straight up and down it. (up I can almost manage, down is impossible) Even straight lines on my very flat front yard is very difficult to maintain so I had to do turtle mode the entire time in the end. To confirm it wasn't just me, I drove my brother's Cub Cadet ZT1 (gas) and it handled perfectly. Mowed around his 36" fire pit with near inch precision. So they just don't have the control in this electric model to handle as I think anyone would expect. I did call Cub Cadet multiple times, at first I was told they drive different and I just needed more "seat time", which is nonsense after the 3-5 hours of driving this. Finally got someone else that walked me through a factory calibration of the controls that I had hope would help...but unfortunately it did not. I wasn't super impressed with the battery life either...I am a larger guy, so maybe that is part of it - but when done mowing my 3/4 acre of grass I only had 18% remaining. This could also be from the terrible control jerking it all around on the motors and having to go over multiple times to get it to mow my yard. Hard to say for sure. So it would make it an acre I'd say...but not two acres as it is rated for. I am now working with Home Depot to return this, and probably exchange for the Electric Ryobi ZTR instead as that has much better reviews. (The Cub Cadet was a new product, so no reviews were out when I bought it)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing lost with going from gas to electric Performance is great after the first 10 hours of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There’s a learning curve but it’s well worth it! When I first used my ZT1-42E it seemed to come up short on drive ability. I assumed that having been using a gas powered zero turn for a decade would result in skills that would instantly transfer over to my new Cub Cadet. What I found was that there were differences in drive ability that required my brain to adapt just like the first time I drove my old zero turn. As I used my new Cub Cadet my brain adapted and the experience became better. I’m not yet at the same level of control I had with my old mower but when I attempted to use my previous zero turn it was actually more difficult to use. In general the ZT1-42E is a great mower, has awesome battery life and the mower deck removal for cleaning is much easier than my previous one. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase. Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ZT1 42E Just had it delivered yesterday. Only had 10% charge on battery. Won't charge, error code E 601. The manual is a joke. It doesn't even tell you how to mitigate the error codes! Cub Cadet acknowledges even on this site that E 601 is a common prevalent issue but never posts how to fix it in their response.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me but the controls are sensitive. I took delivery on 15-April-2021 from a local dealer. They did setup and delivery. I've charged it three times and have had no issues so far. I don't have interior storage so I'm using a UTV cover. I have the bagger and removing the tube to clear the opening is a pain but I don't think that's model specific. The controls are quite sensitive and the motors could spool up a bit more smoothly. The net experience is twitchy movement at very low speed.
