Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Mower and Used it for 1 Year Our older mower died and replaced it with XT1, 42-Inch mower and couldn't be any happier after using it consecutively for a little over a year. Upgraded and placed the front bumper on it (19A300200EM - I did get the yellow one) and also picked up the mulching blades too (19A70041100). Club Cadet is very quick and has a decent turn radius too. What sold me on this unit is the simplified belt configuration and the added rollers on front and aft of the deck. The best part of the mower is the ability to place it in reverse with the blades going which saves time. Changed the oil during the first break-in period and was extremely easy. Some inferior make and model mowers don't have oil filters and question the preventive maintenance on those machines. Highly recommend this machine and it will cut your mowing time in half because of the speed. You will not be disappointed. Still wash the entire mower and place it back in the shed. Superior mower as compared with the competition and the most bang for your dollar. Picked up the extended warranty from Home Depot but more than likely, wasted my money. Thanks for looking at this review and good luck shopping for a mower and please heavily consider this dynamite work horse, you will not be dissapointed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Deck spindle bearing froze! I bought this as the seventh lawn tractor, and expected it to last. It's just over three years old. The engine blew on my last one! The tractor is fine, but the bearing on the deck spindle of the mowing deck - completely fused and failed yesterday while cutting the lawn. I'm 75 years old, and have had at least six lawn tractors over the years of different brands. This is my first Cub Cadet. I wrote them and am waiting to see if the company will quickly send me a new deck spindle fee of charge, as my grass needs cut NOW! I've never had a deck on any of the others where a bearing failed?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend to anyone! This lawn tractor is excellent! With my old mower having one foot in the grave, I figured it was time to bite the bullet and buy a new one. I am very glad I picked the Cub Cadet XT1 L42, as this mower has cut my mowing time! I am also impressed with the short turning radius and how my yard looked like a golf course after my first use! If you are looking at similar mowers, stop wasting your time and go buy a Cub Cadet! You wont regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Cub Cadet for me! I've only got 12 hours on my new XT1, but I love it as much as I did my first one for 21 years. Cub did an excellent job choosing the Kohler engine for this one too. More than adequate even towing carts and other equipment. Turn radius is excellent, controls are well-placed and efficient. I was not sure at first how I'd like the pedal control, but after one pass around my front yard I was good with it; now I'm spoiled. The results when I'm done mowing are simply awesome. I look forward to another 20 plus years of good service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous machine Recently I was in much need of a new riding mower... I did some comparisons, the seat, compartments, engine , engine cover, CUP HOLDER, and a few others... I find the adjustable seat comfortable, LOVE< LOVE the compartments for car keys ~ phone~ etc..... Awesome cup holder ( I really wanted one of these :) )... I love the convenience of an automatic transmission (no more shifting) hehehe.... The engine cover is very sturdy.... The last one had cracked very easily (not a cub) and also faded horribly.. I really enjoy the fact that I no longer need to lift the engine cover to add gas also.. The cut I receive is nice and even.. The turning radius is fabulous~! No more WIDE turns....No more back tracking ~!~! Engine cranks right up without hesitation.. I guess I can really say my bumble~bee purrs.. :) The deck is very easy to clean especially with the convenient , included, attachment for the hose...I love the warranty she has too~! Without a doubt , I am one happy customer.. My Papa purchased one about 3 years ago and has never had one minute of trouble from his either... Thanks Cub Cadet...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from XT1-LT42 This is my 3rd, Cub, and it I think it the best one I have purchased. I do have one small issue. The throttle lever is mounted too low on the dash. I continually bump my knee against it. Maybe a taller person with the seat back won't have this issue. I think they should just relocate it higher up. It cuts great and runs fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the hydrostatic drive. Not having to stop and shift gears is great. And the push button to stay in reverse while mower is running works perfect. I recommend this lawn tractor 100%.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This mower has met all of my expectations. I like the new steering system & has plenty of speed. I didn't think I would like the reverse cut off feature but once I used it,I found that it really isn't a factor. This is my second Cub Cadet riding mower & glad I elected to get another.
