Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the reason I stay with Cub Cadet I have owned nothing but Cub Cadet tractors, and I was hoping that the new IntelliPower would be as great as everyone was claiming. The first time I turned the key, I knew that this mower was going to be special. First off, it's a really nice looking mower. My neighbors (which are obsessed) with cutting their grass love it. It's almost like pulling the sports car out of the garage and getting excited that everyone is looking. The power of this mower is also fantastic. My older model would sometimes struggle to get the high, wet grass cut, but I can zip right through just about anything that gets in my way. The mower won't bog down no matter what I do. You can feel and hear more power being sent to the blades when needed. It's just an awesome feeling when you feel it. I also love the upgrades that they put on the mower. The higher back rest is great, the hydostatic drive (forward/backward) is just awesome. I love that they included this on the 42"! Not to mention, it just feels more sturdy/well built than any of the other mowers I have had. Cub Cadet did an excellent job on this mower, and I 100% recommend!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful mower! This is truly an exceptional mower. It is easy to operate, and it rides very smoothly! I have a large piece of property, and I am able to tackle it quickly and efficiently without worrying about it stalling out through the thicker/ taller areas of grass. I wasn’t sure how I would like the forward/ reverse pedal because it looked awkward, but it is surprisingly easy to use. The width of the cutting area is quite impressive too and cuts down on the time I spend mowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in Every Way! Our yard isn't huge, but large enough to make using a riding lawn mower an added luxury. I'm almost a senior citizen so having a mower that's easy to use is a must. A couple of great features of the Cub Cadet LT-42, for me, is 1) the super comfortable seat which makes mowing a pleasure (I wish my was yard bigger!) 2) it steers soooo easily! 3) the controls are easy to operate. This is just the perfect choice in quality and ease of operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This lawnmower cuts like a dream. The seat is incredibly comfortable and it’s so easy to operate. Living in the south we don’t get a break of not having to cut the grass and this makes it so easy. I will never go back to a standard push mower ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Cutting the Lawn Fun! The Cub Cadet - LT-42 Riding Lawnmower with IntelliPower is the first riding lawnmower I have owned and I love it! Below are my impressions after using this mower. Driving - Very smooth, the big wheels made it easy and smooth driving over the brick (~6 inches tall) that lines my lawn. I have some long stretches of river gravel between section of my lawn and it drives very smoothly over them. Turning radius is quite good; you can do a 180 deg turn leaving about a tractor width on the return. Acceleration - I started by using the brake like a clutch and releasing the break while accelerating. Don't do that or you will jerk very quickly from a stand still. Otherwise, both the forward and reverse are easy to get in/out of. Cutting - Used on my St. Augustine grass lawn that was very damp. I was surprised that the tractor tires didn't tear up or leave impressions in the muddier spots. Having the extra with seem to help it not tear up a more suburban-looking lawn. Safety - I like that I couldn't turn on the mower with the blade lowered. Moving - The free release to push it on its own is pretty easy. I was able to push it myself on flat terrain, but up hill might require a couple of people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Lawnmower Batman! This mower is amazing! It’s incredibly comfortable to ride and the steering controls are very smooth. I actually enjoyed mowing my lawn for basically the first time ever. Dare I say, I actually had fun! The headlights are a cool addition so you can mow pretty much any hour of the day. And it has a cup holder which is quite handy when you live in Texas and have to mow the lawn in triple digit weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! My Cub Cadet arrived in a very sturdy secure crate. I was surprised to see i really didn't have to assemble anything. All I really had to do was pull the crate apart with a couple tools. It also came with oil. It was basically gas up and check everything out and go. I am happy with the cutting length of my grass. It also has an excellent turning radius. It is actually really good at performance. I love that they thought of the cup holder. Yes, the little things do count! The deck is very easy to clean, especially with the hose attachment that is included with the paperwork. It cranks up without hesitation. That is a tremendously huge plus. I love the great quality behind it. High Quality for sure, without a doubt. Customer service is also excellent, if ever needed. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome riding mower! The Cub Cadet LT-42 riding mower is a great mower. It is a huge step up from my push mower. The mower came pretty much set up to start mowing right away. The mower is easy to handle. It gas peddle goes both was for forward and reverse. It's 42' mowing width with dual cutting blades makes short work of my yard. Overall this is a great mower.
