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 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 1 out of 5 by from 2nd one breaks down within one month of purchase This is the second one that breaks down within one month. The first one I was able to return to Homedepot after Cub Cadet couldn’t help me. Now I have a wrench sign and machine wouldn’t start. This is such a poor craftsmanship, period. Would never recommend a cub cadet product to any one. Very disappointed to say the least. Now I can’t talk to service department because they are closed on the weekends when almost everyone cuts their grass!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks Pretty, would make a good boat anchor I bought this five days ago and have yet to get it to work. Sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't, the mower deck will start but cuts out as soon as you move. Error codes with no documentation, no customer support. I'm returning this and buying a John Deere at least they know how to fix theirs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1st 2 days and 1st cut......finally! I bought my ZT142 E 2 days ago. I got home and got it 100% charged I went to cut for about 15 minutes and the blades turned off I tried everything nothing worked, loaded it on the trailer try to get in the blade started up for a second then I got a code E235 took it back the next day went to grab another one loaded up on my trailer and before I could even finish tying it down I had a code come up on it, took it off got another one this one seems to do fine. got it home cut my lawn cut the lawn at the gym and still had 55% and that was a good one and a half acres.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to control I was finally able to use the mower for the first time last week after Cub Cadet forgot to include a key and they were back ordered for over 1 month. The controls are EXTREMELY jerky and non-linear in their response and it is next to impossible to control with any precision around objects or even keep it mowing in a straight line. I did the control recalibration and it had no effect. The only positives is the battery life seems good and it is a well built mower overall. Shame that it the controls are so bad that it defeats the purpose of having a ZTR. I returned it to Home Depot this afternoon. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just drove this home (1 mile from store). Before I left the store clerk said the noise (metal grinding sound) was the breaks and no big deal. Umm ok... OMG it was NOT a pleasant drive home. Bucks like a horse if you are not on flat terrain and trying to navigate sidewalks. Was in turtle mode the whole way as the steering levers are not balanced and it keeps pulling to one side and when you try to make corrections it jerks and over corrects. Did I mention the metal grinding sound? OMG I could barely stand to listen to it the whole way home. Drove by people out for a walk and I was so embarrassed. It is a beautiful machine but has some serious issues that need corrected. I own a 2005 cub cadet Z Wing that I love but was trying to go green to help our planet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly good Bought from Home Depot. It was pre-assembled, and they had lost the keys. They eventually found one, probably taken from another unit. Should this come with two keys? Otherwise it is a nice mower. Driving takes some getting used to - it seems very jerky when changing speeds. It takes a delicate touch. For the price, you’d expect Tesla-like handling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy so far. This is my first ZTR with the two control arms. My previous was a John Deere SST16 and it drove like a standard lawn tractor. I had it for 15years.The controls on this have been a true learning curve, with the constant adjustments to keep it straight and the trying to make close cuts to obstacles in the yard. I mow mine and three neighbors yards which is why I wanted the 42 inch cut. I have only used it 3 times so far and I have somewhere between 30 and 35% battery life left after. The recharge is surprisingly quick since it is just a 110 outlet. I'm giving it 5 star because it has met my expectations for noise level and quality of cut. I will update later if I run into issues. I'm pleased with the mower so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended The machine did not work after being delivered. The control panel would not connect to the battery. Had to push it off the trailer and spent days dealing with cub cadet on the return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful experience! Perfect riding lawn mower. Two acres in one charge

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than gas! No buying gas. No belts, oil changes or any major maintenance. Charging is quick and easy. The two major problems is that it has issues with getting wet and not working. For a machine that runs outside it should be more waterproof. If you let it dry out, it resets and is good to go. The second is that the drive control is unpredictable. When in full speed mode it is very jerky and sometimes feels like you don’t have control compared to the same gas model. When in the slow (turtle) mode it is more steady, but the speed to each wheel seems inconsistent each time you start out. It is clear the slow mode was designed because of the jerky speeds in the full speed mode. It takes some getting used to with power going to each wheel independently rather than from one motor. But once you get past that, it makes it easier to get past the sensitive controls.

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 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.
