Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and smooth We have had our cub cadet lawn tractor LT 42 for about 6 weeks now and we have no regrets about our purchase. The mower runs very well with a sharp and smooth cut. I really like the double blade mowing deck which allows me to mow at faster speeds and still get a good cut. I also like the Kohler engine. I have had other mowers with engines from another popular brand that I was not impressed with and have had a lot of issues. Best of all my wife likes to mow with it. She loves the yellow color and says it is "cute". Hey if she is happy I am happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great turning radius I am generally satisfied with this tractor. it handles well. The cover for the mulch blades is not good because the edges keeps loading up with grass. it needs to be re-designed to cover without gaps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great mower I use this for my lawn business and it has been a great purchase for me. It rides very comfortable and has good power. It has already paid for itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like it should I have about an acre yard, most of it uneaven and lots of trees. Mower cuts evenly, no scalping, and maneuverability is excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Cub Cadet This mower exceeded my expectations from the get go!!!! More power than I expected. Very, very easy to keep the deck clean of grass - both on top of the deck and underneath. Love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lawn tractor I've owned a lot of lawn tractors [ different makes and models - this is by far and away the best machine I've owned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful machine Great machine and cuts beautifully. This one replaces a craftsman I’ve had for 20 years. I just wish it would come with a cover over the deck opening. The mower throws the cut grass around 20-30 ft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The easiness to start and its turning radias I've bought the Cub Cadet-XT1LT42 just over a month ago and I just love it. I've never owned a Hydrostatic rider before. I'm still learning it but am so Happy I purchased one and it being this Cub Cadet. Sorry I don't have any Photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mower, but made for large people I purchased my mower in April 2019. I like it, works well. However, every time I ride over a bump and I bounce out of the seat just a bit, it almost stalls out. I weigh 102#. I wish I was warned by the salesman that you need to weigh over a certain amount for the mower to run properly. My son devised a way to hold the seat down using several bungee cords. But if I shift my weight at all, such as shifting the mower lever, it still stalls. Can be very frustrating. Contacted customer service through their "Chat" but got no response. Wondering if there's a way to override the auto shut-off. So far the mower does a nice job on my 1 acre property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT RIDE Went from green to yellow ,after reviewing all my options went with XT1 great ride easy functions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The entire process in purchasing my “First Cubcadet“ has been rewarding! The Associates and Home Depot as whole made it a great caring experience. By the way, my “Cubbie” is the best! I am very pleased with the performance and easy handling of an fantastic mower. Plenty to say; however, I have grass begging for a professional cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features for the money Engine timer, great seat, gas cap placement is the best, are some of the things that separate this from the competition. Reviews not only on line but by other customers in the store and the store workers that see the other models that come in for repair a lot (ie john Deere).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First use, AMAZING! Purchased this bad boy this morning at The Home Depot. Brought it home, fired right up on the first attempt. Cut heights are good, ease of use is incredible. Love the cut in reverse feature. Also love the fact that the cup holder is not on the same side as the chute. Great product. Only took me 30 minutes, so searching for other yards to cut hahah. Great job team!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's been a great summer here in Wisconsin using my new Cub Cadet to keep up our yard after having shoulder surgery in April. The mower was great to use with no problems. We even bought a trailer to help with other chores. Now this week we purchased the bagger unit for this tractor. The machine has lived up to it's name. We enjoy being in "Strongsville"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tractor in its price range Did quite a bit of research on lawn tractors between $1000 and $2000 price range and this Cub was by far the best one going. It has the best features. the best warranty and was the most comfortable.I had an old WHite lawn tractor I bought second hand and it blew a head gasket so it was time to find a new one and this Cub was the best choice . love the hydrostatic trans and tight turning radius . no more stopping to shift from forward and reverse , just step on a pedal an go . And go it does ,The controls for the pto and deck adjust ments are also nicely located rite by your side. I also got a bagger unit for it and have been using to clean up leaves , really love that . hopefully it lasts me a long time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Yellow Babe Decisions Decisions - what lawn tractor should I buy in a virtual minefield of options....I know...let's ask owners what they like and dislike about the lawn tractors they bought. A few trips around the neighborhood and many many comversations later we had narrowed it down to 2 brands. I went back to those 2 neighbors and asked if I could test drive their tractors on my property and they obliged us. After a week of testing out these 2 brands we talked a little more to some contractors that were mowing lawns in the neighborhood, went and looked at the final 2, saw the accessories, priced everything and bought our Big Yellow Babe that day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love My Cub After many years working between small Snappers and a few second hand Cub Cadets, I finally broke down and bought a brand new Shiny Yellow and Black Cub Cadet. (Actually, I finally talked my wife into buying the darn thing!!!) We both use it to cut our grass and we both love all the new features it has. For me the CUP HOLDER was a must. I was hoping for a CANE HOLDER but was out of luck with that one!!! I will have to get the Velcro out for that. On a serious note--We could not have gotten a better mower for the price, and we both Love our Cubby!!!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rider Ever!! After my craftsman of 11 years died last fall i have been researching new lawn mowers(read plenty of reviews). I test drove John Deere s240 and d140 , also the 46 inch xt2 cub cadet, which was very quite and had a smooth ride(which is better than john deere in my opinion). I saw that Home Depot had a $100 dollars off the xt1. Was trying to Decide on the 42 inch 18 HP or 46 inch 22 HP Cubby. I had a 18.5 briggs engine on my other mower which had a hard time cutting the thick grass in my back yard. I finally decided on the 42 inch with a 18 HP kohler engine, and i am glad i did. Cuts my grass with no problem and has more power than my old mower!! I have cut My grass 5 times and it has never looked better!! (cutting in reverse is a breeze) The 3 year warranty with unlimited hours is a bonus.(follow your maintenance schedule) I would highly recommend the Cub Cadet to anyone. You won't be disappointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cut I have a little over half an acre and the 42 inch cut is great on my lawn. I like the ability that it doesn't leave wheel marks or cut marks on my lawn. With my push mower you could see which direction I mowed. I also appreciate the looks I get from neighbors as they slow down to look at my lawn ! Cuts my mowing time down from when I was using the push mower only !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really happy with my purchase i just purchased the XT1 42 and I could not be more pleased with the performance and features of this mower. I highly recommend Cub Cadet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it indeed! I have used this mower weekly since purchasing it about two months ago. It has been wonderful in comfort, ease of use, cutting ability, etc. Hope it continues out the way it has started.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower I have had this mower for about 2 months. The only thing I think needs fixed is the mulching accessory. This item does not seal tight all the way around and allows grass to be forced out of the edges. I like the turning radius as well as the ability to mow in reverse. The head lights are not very bright but then again in the city I can not run it at night. I purchased the rake accessory as well and it works good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW nice Mower! Got this Cub about a month ago and I am glad I did ! it rides great an is very easy to steer I have a hilly yard and the 18HP carts my 250 carcass with ease. This mower is a nice machine at a very reasonable price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Load and Terrible Bagging I just received my XT1 LT42 yestarday. After reading many review I thought I made the correct decision. This tractor cuts the grass nicely but WOW is it load. Make sure you wear something or you'll be deaf. Tried the bagger, seem to pick up the grass pretty well but be prepared for to shower when when your done because you will be covered in dirt. Not to mention you'll have to wash the tractor because there will be dirt and dust every where. It just blows the don everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far , so good. I have owned this machine for one month. Added a mulch kit. looking for a front bumper. Only mowed with it twice. I live in Minnesota. The snow melted about three weeks ago. I have used the machine with a lawn cart to haul brush, furniture, mulch, dirt, firewood and much more. Love the turning radius. Love the 18 HP engine. The forward pedal and reverse pedal are great. My old machne (Yardman) had a lever shift for forward and reverse. this is so much easier. Removed the deck to install the new blades for the mulch kit and was happy with the ease of the task. The water flush attachment is something that should have been invented years ago. I am very happy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product has been the best purchase by far of "lawn products", use to only buy green or red but have had nothing but issues with those products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower Exceeds all of my expectations. Can add all of the accessories that you could ever need. Perfect cut. Kohler engine is the best. Shipped great directly from them in heavy duty packaging. Safe but not annoying. Well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower I bought my mower in the spring and after using it all summer I can say that it is a really great mower. I had a John Deere before this one and the Club Cadet is much better for me because it is not as far of the ground. Being a Senor citizen who is disabled this mower is a lot easer to get on and off.
