Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous - although a bit pricey Cub cadet review Very impressive - wish it was lower price So I’m a bit of a cub cadet fan boy - prior to Prior to buying the 42e I had a XT1 46” gas lawn tractor (I still have). While near religious in performing maintenance, I’m not precious about going light on equipment - the gas tractor went through a couple of belts, replacement spindles and home repairs to the exhaust muffler over a 4 year period. I mention this as after finally bending the deck on the gas tractor this summer, some folks may have changed brands. However, the repairs were largely my fault and I still think Cub Cadet represents great value and looks. I came to realize that if I was to replace my lawn tractor, why not go for a newer platform that reduced the complexity of drivetrain and virtually removed the time of maintenance - hence the move to electric. I’ve now had the 42e for 4 months and am very happy with my purchase - I’ve got a little over 1.5 acres and the battery just covers the complete area. The cut is uniform, the ride is smooth and operation is quiet. In direct comparison, my 46” gas tractor needed ear defenders whereas the 42e doesn’t. The party trick of just stopping the blades and still being able to maneuver near silently across the yard doesn’t wear thin. The only downside so far is that the tractor appears lighter over the front axle than the gas equivalent and hence can be a little bouncier if you do hit a bump. Early adopters will always pay for the price of new technology and I’m sure the purchase price will come down once the technology is more common place - although steep, I don’t begrudge the amount I paid for what is essentially a fancy 42” ride on tractor. I’m now wondering if I’ll be able to get performance improvements as software releases like a Tesla ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Lithium Ion powered lawn tractor. I purchased this mower in Aug'19. This mower matches it gas powered stablemates in the quality of cut. It is noisier than expected and still requires ear protection when mowing. It costs about 50 cent to charge the battery from near empty in my area. I can cut and sweep my almost acre yard easily on a half of charge. (my terrain is flat). The manual is well written and very easy to understand. The tractor handles very well but it is a bit clunky at low speeds. Besides the usual sharpening of the mower blades there is very little maintenance. (no oil changes, belts, or filters to replace).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Customer! I purchased this electric riding mower the first month it was released. The main thing that interested me in the cub cadet over other electric riding mowers was the Li Ion battery pack. I knew this would mean a virtually maintenance free mower, which is exactly what I wanted. I mowed several acres at a time with this machine all summer and it did exceptionally well. It is plenty powerful, plenty fast, and is well made. Even did well on steep hillsides. The battery has plenty of power for mowing my entire property with plenty of power left over.
