Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor Use to own a John Deere tractor but it had so many problems. I was thinking about getting another but thought about checking into a Cub Cadet, talked to people that own one, read reviews, did some online comparing. Also own a cub cadet tiller and its great no problems. Well glad i did all that and bought the cadet. No more John Deere for me. I bought the XT1 tractor and let me tell you this tractor is the best, can't believe I waited this long to get one. This tractor is a beast. It cuts really good, it handles inclines with no problems, has great speed, turning feels like power steering like a zero turning tractor. It throws clipping out of the chute like a mile, The ride is a little bumpy but its a tractor. My John Deere was a little loud and this one is not as loud. Also like that when you set the cutting deck to the height you want that's what your going to get not scalping the lawn. Just a few issues when I bought it but I Fixed when I got it home. I'm sure it was done at the store when they assembly the tractor there. The steering wheel put on wrong, the bolts to the seat have a piece of plastic that fits into the bracket to keep the seat from rocking they were crushed and hanging out, the connector for the headlights not plugged in, the plastic hood (top & bottom) where they meet at the front didn't line up do to putting it together wrong. All this was a easy fix for me as I can do this kind of work but some others that might not be able to perform this might want to check these out before they buy. All in all this is a awesome tractor and I will stick with this brand for the great product this is. They hit the mark with this tractor way to go. Loving to cut the grass again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Mower Great power. Parts are not easy to get. The air filter for my engine is not standard I guess. I've had to go through Amazon to find the odd shape that fits my engine. Other than that tractor is fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mower - trouble at first Amazing mower for the price. Very powerful, reliable, and durable. Does a great job. But...when first shipped to me by local Home Depot, engine would not start. Tried many times over several days to fix. Thought it might be bad battery. Finally pulled the Kohler engine manual and did a throttle cable adjustment. That was the issue. Cable came way loose over time sitting at the store. Needs an engineering fix to keep cable better set/secured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome rider! This mower has great power, always starts, and looks great! The led lights are a great touch, just wish they were on a switch. It cuts beautifully and has a wide far throw so there's no clumping. Love the mow in reverse feature. The steering is quick and light and tight! So far it's done everything I ask of it. Looking forward to getting a blade and seeing if the snow stops it! But i think it will do well. It isn't complete without the autobot decal though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value on XT1 LT46 I received my Cub Cadet XT1 LT46 this week and mowed the lawn yesterday for the first time with it. Upon arrival I checked the tires - all were over inflated so I corrected that first. I checked the deck level and it was fine. I needed to move the deck wheels which was not a problem. Oil level was fine. The hood had a slight scratch on it but it's not a big deal. A couple of minor issues - the ignition module (where the key goes in) is a little loose so I'm going to have to see if I can correct that. The area around the hour meter has some bubbling ( adhesive not holding well I guess) but it should not be an issue. Other than those I've not found any other issues but I've only used it once. This mower replaces a 15 year old riding mower (21 HP, 42" cut, manual transmission) that served us well but just got worn out. After mowing with the new Cub Cadet I am very happy with the performance of the machine. It cut the mowing time in half! We mow about 1.5 acres (several trees and obstacles, mostly flat terrain) and finished the job in about an hour. It's very powerful and cuts well at higher speed. As others have said steering is also easy. I think the hydrostatic transmission also makes a huge difference. I won't have to do it for some time but the instructions in the manual regarding removing the mower deck are not completely clear. It says something about loosening the nuts on the idler pulleys and I'm not sure why you would have to do that but I suppose I'll figure that out when the time comes. Overall this looks like a great machine and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower! I recently purchased a home on about an acre and needed to ditch the self-propelled for a riding mower. After looking at reviews of all the major brands I chose the CubCadet XT1 L46 due to it absolutely crushing the competition in user reviews. I have to tell you everyone was right. It is a great riding mower, I get my yard done in a little over an hour. Cuts clean and deals with some of the uneven terrain very well. Looking forward to years of service from this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and workmanship I bought this after my craftsman died and couldn’t be happier. Steering is light and perfect with a nice tight radius. The automatic transmission makes movement forward and backwards a breeze. Cutting is smooth and accurate. Engine size is perfect for the 46” deck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad mower I purchased this mower on 3/23/19, on 4/18/19 the engine started surging and running rough & is now in the shop as of 4/23/19. It will take 7-10 days before they can get to it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pedigree mule I mow an old yard with countless species of grass that have different growth rates, different levels of coarseness & thicknesses & it doesn't care. It climbs hills like a mule & the turning radius is great. very quiet for a 22hp engine. Fine warranty is better than it's major competitors. I occasionally scalp mole mounds & it doesn't care. I recommend the better blades which I do have. Good brakes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth ride,fast cut,easy start I love this lawn tractor, wish my yard was bigger so I could ride this lawn tractor for longer. I have 46” blade with the 22hp kohler engine, let me tell u I didn’t think 5.5mph sound fast bu this moves and the blades never slow down. Does kick more dust but it never clogs. I also got the bagger with the 6” flex tube it also ever clogs and picks up everything. One thing I do wish is that the choke level was not plastic seems like a important part to cheap out on. Also love the reverse mode no more hold a button just turn to start and then turn key to yellow area and push the yellow button and release.i only have a 4 bc of the choke level being plastic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this tractor in May 2015 I bought My Cub May of 2015 to replace a John Deere L110 this tractor far is better, turns tighter, runs better, and is quiet, mowers better, and I paid more for my Deere 8 years earlier, If you looking for and easy to own and operate riding mower that will tackle the job buy A cub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all my Cub's features Just purchase a XT1 LT46" over Labor Day and love it!! Added the Cub Connect and then put 5 hours on it my first weekend. Nothing like running the tractor just because.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new Cub XT1 is awesome! My new cub xt1 is so wonderful. The new steering is awesome. Feels more like a car. I replaced my 20 year old Ranch King (MTD) and I feel that it ran circles around any new Deere from the big box stores. Maybe not the older garden tractor types, but still very trusty. Even though the steering wasn't so robust and the Vari-speed pully and transaxle was getting worn, I still enjoyed the darn thing. The Xt1 has some of the same feel but much more refined. It feels solid. I wouldn't change a thing about it. For regular maintenance, the hood comes off without any tools. The added front bumper adds stylish looks while protecting my investment from hitting a tree! I also added the bagger. It's great and easily removes for attaching any other implements. I also purchased the mulching kit. Very nice indeed, when you just want to put those clippings back down on the lawn for extra nitrogen. It really does work well and chop grass very fine. I would love to have the 3 stage blower attachment, but I need to save up. I bet it's awesome. I love the way MTD products handle and Cub cadet is their top-of-the-line units, in my opinion.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mower started leaking gas 40 days after purchase I've had this mower for 40 days and used it maybe 6 times. On the 4th time of using it, it would start to sputter and almost cut off randomly when mowing the yard. Then after the 6th time it was sputtering something awful and I just shut it off and placed it in the garage. During the night, the lawn mow started leaking gas out the carburetor all over the garage. The whole backside of the house around the garage end smells like someone has poured gas in every room. I have had to load the mower up and take 20 miles away to the nearest repair shop. Hope this isn't a lemon, but not off to a good start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine I didn't take my machine for a test drive before buying but I did research comparable machines and learned every detail before making my choice to buy the Cub XT1-LT46. I was hands on with the machines I had considered and went over everything I needed and wanted in a new machine. The Cub Had it. More HP, larger deck, more standard features, better warranty. The only thing that wasn't more was the price so getting more for less is always a win. This doesn't mean you Cub cheaped out. I sat in the seat of all the machines and from the seat to the steering wheel to the foot controls and the deck controls everything was built more comfortable and in my opinion better. A couple of the comparisons I made to the competition were the reverse pedal on the Cub was cut from flat steel and welded to the control arm were the competitor was made of plastic. When I noticed that the rear fenders and the steel body had a rolled edge all the way around then I made my positive decision to take it home. Home is in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and I don't cut a city lot. My lawn is large by huge and I needed something that will hold up. I don't plan to abuse it but everything in my shed works hard to earn its place there, the Cub XT1-LT46 is no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lawn Tractor This is a great machine. I have had it about a month and it has performed better than expected. It has plenty of power and cuts like a charm. The only thing I would chang is the seat. Mowing on hills is difficult and you have to hold on to the fender so you don't slide off. But all in all it is a good tractor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort, good size, plenty of power I purchased this mower before spring and mowing season has just started. So far I've mowed a few times with it and it does just what I need it to do. It's much more comfortable than my previous mower and has plenty of power for the hills I have. Only time will tell just how good it really is as I plan on keeping it for quite a while. I keep my equipment maintained and my old mower is 20 years old and still going. If there is anything I don't like about this mower it is the throttle control. It is in a bad spot where I have a tendency to hit it with my knee especially if it's in the idle position.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the mower Does everything i need it to. Only thing I hate is seat covering is to thin and rips easy. Mine ripped inone day. It stays in the garage. It needs arm rest to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took a beating first time out Bought this to cut the 2 or 3 acres of grass on my 12 acre camp in Maine. Made quick work of the unimproved field with somewhat rough terrain and the 2-3 ft tall grass. My son and I got it out of the trailer and weren't finished having fun and taking turns when we ran out of grass to cut! Had plenty of power to handle the tall grass and hills. Bought at Home Depot and didn't double check the tire pressure. My bad. Way overpressurized. Hit something and punctured a tire putting it away that might have otherwise been ok. Overall great experience and would recommend with one use under my belt. Let's see how it holds up over time. I'll be back if anything noteworthy occurs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lawn tractor Have used the tractor for a month and a half with great results. The unit has given me the power that I need to cut my lawn effectively, not only on straight runs but on side hills. The local independent Cub Cadet dealer was also excellent in explaining the function and maintenance requirements for the safe operation and longevity of the unit. I am very impressed with the total buying experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor! Compared a lot of tractors both online and in person before buying this one. Really happy with my Cub. Mows great, feels great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, came highly recommended by friends. I reached out to my friends on facebook and asked them for opinions on riding lawnmowers. Several friends recommended the Cub Cadet, based on quality and longevity. I've had mine for only 2 months now, so I can't personally speak to longevity yet, but I am very happy with the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower-better than snapper Great price for what you get. Granted I have only had this mower for a few months but for that price I can just buy another later if it breaks down out of warranty. Best riding I have ever been on. Turns on a dime unlike my Snapper. Strong motor....Love it. Makes me want to mow haha which is something I hate to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I have either owned or operated almost every brand out there. This machine without a doubt out shines anything I have been on. Very easy to turn and operate. Outstanding service from my dealer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now that's a machine! 18" high wet grass. I was between rain storms and had to do something before it got any worse This mower/machine went through this field almost like it was 3" high grass- and not at even 1/2 throttle. The turning radius on the machine was almost as good as a "0" turning mower. The clean up was also very easy with the hose connection at the top of the mowing deck- I still did a little more since I'm fussy about that kind of thing. Much to my surprise I found that it also grease z irks so I can maintain the machine! Look at the others- they are "sealed" but for how long! A great unit allows the owner to maintain it- period! I don't trust anything to be "maintenance free"!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Drive belt problem We are NOT happy at all. After six times using it, the drive belt did not work anymore because it got cut into two. Replaced it but the belt got loose and did not work at all. This is the worst one we had. Had to hire somebody now to mow our yard. Bought the useless cab cade on May 9, 2019 from Home Depot here in Memphis TN. Supposed to be a new one but very disappointed with the riding mower. Even called your customer service but no help rendered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Strong riding lawn mower. Nice lawnmower. I love it. It never gets stuck and is miraculous on rough terrain. It is so strong. It just hums away. It is superb. I love its color and its look. Its price was fair and fantastically low. It has a lot of cc and horsepower. I am completly satisfied. BUTT I have to complain about the phone service. I give up. I can never get a call through to support. It is totally unfair. I ordered the wrong part. All I needed was a return label. Despite hours on the phone, i still could not get through. I give up. Other than that. The lawn mower is very nice.
