Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well, better than my previos lawn tract I like the manual PTO easy to control and engages easy so the belt doesn't slip at all which should make it last longer. The improved turn radius is really nice when mowing around trees, etc. I can mow my yard in less time. I would like to be able to bypass the shutdown feature when not on the seat, it's to sensitive and activates when I shift my weight to the upside of a slope to help mower cut even. I put a blade on mine and used it to help level 12 yards of class 5 fill, it worked out very well for a lightweight. Removing and reinstalling the cutting deck could be a lot easier, although it is much improved over my previous model. The exception is the cable for the PTO, step 7 on page 19, it is very difficult to see how the cable fits into the bracket, a picture would be a great help, I struggled with this step, to reinstall the cable I flipped the tractor on it's side and could see the bracket clearly, it took less than a minute to reinstall. In step 8 we are told to use a ratchet to hold the idler pully out of the way, I pushed the pulley back and inserter a 2" extension into the square hole, the extension was now on the backside of the round bar and held the pulley out of the way, much easier than messing with a ratchet. To me it feels as if your instructions come from a shop and the mower is raised up on a stand and easy to see, mine is on the floor of my garage and I need also be crawling around on the floor in some awkward positions. At 79 years old I try to keep this kind of activity to a minimum. This mower is a big improvement over my previous one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Belt Guard Design Bought this product 4 months ago and have to repair it twice (the belt smoke and break when you engage the blades). Maybe the repair shop did not do a good job so they have to redo. I hope it was nothing major but it took 6 weeks to fix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I brought on July 4th I bought XT1 42" and I really work it, the 1st set of blades it came with worn immediately, so cheap. Purchase a set from Amazon and they are wearing like Iron ! The battery is either not being charged or it won't hold a charge, I'm unhappy with that, I use it daily to cut grass for our cows, we only have 9 but can't tie the lawn tractor up in a service shop for days so I bought a battery charger and charge it daily. Other then all that drama it cuts, blows, and bags like a Champ! We got quick hitch bagger and it's perfect ! L Campbell DeLand/Gainsville FL

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lawn tractor I have owned Cub Cadet for years. 1966 thru 1984. They required a lot of work due to their age. My wife said sell them and get a new one in the spring. I chose Cub Cadet over the others, (lots of hours on the net), because of the 42" deck with 4 gauge wheels and the tight turning radius. My yard is hilly and wider mowers tend to scalp it. Not this one. I also purchased the Fast Tach rear bagger because I have tow behind equipment. Pull two pins and the bagger is off. This year our free yard waste dump is closing @ the end of the season, so I purchased and installed the mulching kit. Works very well except the plug isn't a tight seal. Fixed that with foam self stick installation around the inside of the plug. I'll need to add the rear weight kit so I can go uphill, which will hinder my use of towable equipment. I am highly satisfied with my tractor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unsatisfied I bought my xlt in March, it burnt in July. And now their saying the warranty won't cover it because the air filter didn't burn. I do not recommend cud cadet because they do not stand by there product. Now I not only have to pay for the mower which is not paid off but now I have to repair it. Grrr

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in the motor I purchased my Cub Cadet with the 18hp Kohler Courage motor and two months after the warranty was up the motor was trash. The dealer I took it to said that is the first one he's seen where the casing cracked around the crankshaft. The mower had been a good mower but this left a bad taste in my mouth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cuts nice Only issue is kohler engine has a bad carburetor system. When off, gas fills the cylinder and then ends up in the oil. I’ve had to change oil twice within 5 running hours. I have to let fuel tank run out before each parking.
