Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles everything thrown at it Please understand, i am the owner of 2 IH cub cadet models (169 and 124.) They have been tough tractors that get the work done. I wanted to get a newer garden tractor for a larger property i bought last fall. After doing a lot of homework i chose the XT3 GSX. I have been absolutely floored by the performance and the build quality. Box scrapers, moldboard plowing, snowplows and back blades. It pulls and pushes with ease. It is indeed a super tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged, value packed, but could use refinement. I purchased my Cub Cadet in June of 2018, along with the 48" fabricated deck, and a previous generation Cub Cadet 48" snowblower, and a sleeve hitch. At this point I have owned it a year, used it through all 4 seasons, and have been very happy with it. The Kohler Command 25 provides plenty of power, with a surprisingly nice exhaust note. The rear-end is among the strongest in the mid-range garden tractor lineup, sitting between the Tuff Torq K66 and K72 in strength. The differential lock, while rarely used, has been indispensable when needed. The 48" fabricated deck does an excellent job cutting, certainly better than anything else I have owned in the past. It's also a tank, weighing in at over 150 pounds, and that makes the electric lift much appreciated. On that note, I never thought the electronic power steering would impress me, but it really has. I didn't think power steering would be so useful, but it really is, especially given the weight of the XT3. In short the XT3 is an excellent mower, can clear snow like a champ, and with the sleeve hitch can use a wide range of implements. This is a true medium-duty garden tractor, and is on par with it's competition while maintaining a lower price. Are there things that could be improved? Absolutely. I wish the controls for the electronic power lift were on the tower, as opposed to the fender. Along with that, the headlights are not sealed, and thus need to regularly be cleaned out, which is a bit inconvenient. Also, there are a few more minor things that could stand improvement. The choke lever could stand to have a return spring, and the 48" fabricated deck really should have rotating anti-scalp wheels. It wouldn't add much to the price, and really would make life easier. Lastly, I wish the headlights had an on-off switch, it's a minor thing given that the lights are LED, but it's still irritating. I want to end with more positives though, and there are many. The seat is very comfortable, and easily adjusted. The tilt-steering is easy to use, and very useful, and the location of the differential lock is right where you want it. The brush guard also does a great job protecting the hood, headlights, and grille. It's a bit heavy, but easy enough to raise and lower, giving access to the hood. The Cub Cadet XT3 GSX is an excellent machine, with some room for improvement, at an excellent price. I can't recommend it enough for someone that needs to step up from a lawn tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Super Tractor! I purchased my XT3 GSX in May 2019 and have only owned it for a month. But what a satisfying month it has been! This was a upgrade from a very fine Cub Cadet XS1 ST54 lawn tractor that performed flawlessly, but I wanted a garden tractor with more power, features & capability. This XT3 GSX is my 3rd Cub Cadet in 5 years. And not because they don't perform well, on the contrary they perform so well that I've kept upgrading to the next level! The cut is professional quality, top of the line. The tractor does everything I ask it to without hesitation. The powerful 25hp Kohler engine & Hydro Gear transmission FEEL and are awesome. The power steering is great & the turn radius seems like turning on a dime. The ride is smooth & comfortable. So far it's a Super Tractor in my opinion & well worth the price for what you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough I purchased this gsx 1 year ago 4/2018 and i have put it to the test. I haul firewood thru the woods up and down a huge hill. The diff lock has been awesome esspecially with the rain weve had. And it mows great no complaints it has been a very good tractor so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Built sturdily and rugged, up to the task at hand. Mows effortlessly and the power steering on GSX is a plus. I was not disappointed with the purchase and you won’t be either. The only fault I find is the need for water/dust proof headlights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Tractor I've used my tractor to mow several times now, used the lawn sweeper, and drug around the limb chipper. It really is a great, powerful, easy to use tractor that checks all of the boxes for me. My wife grew up on a farm and can mow better than me at this point, but I will learn how to cut in close and keep the deck level!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from XT3 GS 48in Fabricated deck I cant offer much in terms of review of the machine, as mine is still sitting at the dealer with a bagger that cost me over $700 and does not fit, cannot be returned, and it has been verified all the part numbers match up. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when you know you have been screwed over and wasted a large sum of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice looking In March, 2016 I purchased new a GSX with 54" fabricated deck which is my third new Cub Cadet since 1995. Features I like about the GSX is it's power steering and electric deck lift and tight turning radius. I mow nearly two acres and during the fall tow a Cyclone Rake mulching leaves for nearly three months. I use the mower 10 months out of the year and have logged 87 hrs. since March, 2016. Features I dislike is the nearly impossible to read hour meter and constant engine backfire upon shutdown. Although the backfire is minimized by shutdown at full throttle I think this needs improved as I never experienced this with my older Cub's. I'd like to see Cub engineers redesign the deck wheels so they can be turned 90 degrees to facilitate easy deck removal instead of having to drag the deck in and out. Overall I'm happy with the new GSX and look forward to years of trouble free operation. '
