Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lawn Tractor I ever ownef I’ve owned numerous tractors big & small but never a Cub Cadet until this XT1-LT50. Should have bought one years ago... excellent machine, fantastic cut, plenty of power and a comfortable ride as well. Seems to be well thought out and built. Cutting my property takes a fraction of the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower Everything works great. starts and runs good, tight steering circle!! and great fuel filler neck location!! only negatives: doesn't ride as smooth as I expected, and is louder than I expected when the blades are engaged. yet, I would buy again because it runs and mows great, easy to use, and a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product to be honest!!! I've had some of the other Cub's before but this one is by far the best cut I've ever gotten from the Cub Cadet line. Great power Easy Steering Comfortable ride even. I just wished that they had the Extreme blades for the 50" cut is all. Altogether is a Excellent mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets or exceeds all my expectations Extremely good product for the money. Mows well, and is very comfortable to operate. I also purchased three bag bagger for this model and it works very well, even with the regular blades that came on the mower, it picks up grass and leaves effortlessly and even small twigs and branches. I especially like the hose connections for cleaning the underside of the deck, these do a great job and I sure don't miss getting down and scraping with a putty knife. Overall I am very pleased with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product lived up to my expectations My father bought a Cub Cadet when I was young. It would have been around 1970 . He mowed a huge yard and barnyard area with it. It was also used for snowblowing in the winter. He rolled it and generally beat it up, but it always started and ran like a dream. My father n law also had them and was very satisfied. When my husband and I started looking at machines, I kept telling him how dependable my dad's tractor was. He remembered how happy their family had been so we ended up buying one. I only have about 9 hours on it, but am totally sold! I use it to mow in tight areas and around trees and edges. It has a tight turn radius. I bought a trailer and have used it quite a bit with heavy loads. The tractor doesn't even know it is pulling anything. This is an amazing little tractor and I look forward to the lawn needing mowed or hauling to be done so I can get it out and use it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Great Lawn Tractor! Cub really went to the drawing board and made the best tractor in its class. Between the New Kohler 7000 series and the K46 tuff torq hydro this is stuff you don't see in the competitions line ups! I had a Ferris that failed me and before that I had a Cub Cadet 1050 I loved the cut, the new XT -1 Lt 50 has a great frame and deck, the quality and cut and ride is by far better then others in its class that I tested. This tractor is smooth easy to use, turns super tight 16'' radius, and looks to be easy to service and keep up with. The warranty is out standing compared to the competition Thank you Cub you guys made it fun to mow and fit and finish is very good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take a chance and was blown away!! Looked around for a quality mower and was leaning towards some of the upper tier mowers. Always liked the Cub Cadet line and when I found this 50 in with the fabricated deck, I was sold. So far everything feels solid and it will convince you it has power steering! My jealous brother said it sounds like a jet taking off when the PTO is engaged. You will NOT be disappointed with this mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tractor. Operator friendlyfor women. Horsepower strength is excellent. Easily mounted. Steering is great with the new turn radius. Raising and lowering mower has been greatly enhanced with the new lift spring assist devices . Comfort seat reduces the tired feeling from mowing large yard. My wife is pleased and now enjoys the opportunity to assist with yard maintenance using this tractor. Approximately 10 years service with previous Cub Cadet lawn tractor and it is still in excellent condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has the best features I've seen in mower. The steering is awesome , the horsepower behind the 24 hp Koller motor is second to none . Just a all around great tractor . I would recommend it to all my friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lemon? Threw a belt within the first hour of mowing. TS didn't seem to care that we had spent all this money and could only use it an hour. Was told we'd have to wait a week for their guy to look at it. Loaded it up and took it to our daughter to see if she could figure out how to fix the belt. Turns out it was installed wrong to begin with! So WE got that fixed and it mowed great for a couple of week and then it wouldn't start and was blowing fuses as fast as we would put one in so it's to the repair shop it goes and wait a couple weeks for it to be fixed.. Hadn't even had it a month and can't use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine Just Short of Perfect This is an amazing and strong machine. Cuts great, great turning ratio, turns very easy, very smooth transmission. The only issue I have is finding parts for it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Work horse Put 12 hours on it. It’s a beast. Stuck blade are pretty soft. Transmission belt slipped off clutch pulley! Never has that happen after 4 years with 2009 model. Love the three blades though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all around value mower I have had good success with other MTD platforms in the past. I wanted to upgrade my 42" 18hp 12 yr old unit. It is still serviceable, just wanted a bigger deck, more comfortable frame and more HP. I mow one acre of what some would call a hot mess. Nothing is even, I have a nasty drainage ditch and its hilly. It would take me approx one hr on the 42" first mow with the LT50 cub took 35 min. A bit over 40% faster. The Kohler engine has plenty of power and is smooth running. I'm normally a Briggs guy but willing to give the Kohler a shot. Hey, I even bought a Chevy truck once. A lot of the same engineering is carried over, so i hope to get the same good service life. For anyone new to these, preventative maintenance is key. The only thing I'm not 100% satisfied with is reverse. It works but seems to labor a bit. I still have my old 18 hp, it beats the cub "head to head" in a distance timed reverese test. Not a deal breaker. I do like not having to open the hood to fuel. I purchased from a local Cub dealer because of their knowledge and professionalism. Thanks Tri County. I could have gone cheaper at a box store, but feel more secure with this purchase decision. Hoping for good results going forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally satisfied with my new mower This mower replaced a mid-90's 20 hp 42 inch Craftsman. Mowing time went from 100 minutes to 70 minutes for my 1 acre lot. Very easy to turn the front wheels and the turning radius is a lot better than the Craftsman. The reverse-mow feature that allows the blades to keep turning while in reverse is invaluable--you simply turn the key one notch to the left of the regular running position and press a triangle-shaped button. A red light comes on letting you know that the feature has been engaged. The mower starts quickly and easily. My experience with gas consumption--6.3 hours consumed about 5.5 gallons of gas. I do not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. I had it delivered from Home Depot, and therefore did not have to set it up. I did have to lower one side of the deck so that the height of each side off the ground equaled each other (how to do is shown in the manual and is not hard or time consuming). Cuts beautifully. Very happy with it after 5 weeks of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent Quality and Value This is my second 50 " cub cadet lawn tractor in 10 years. I gave my old one to my son. It is still going strong. The new XT1 is even better . The steering is like power steering and nearly zero turn. The spring assisted deck lift is very good. The mower cuts grass easily and smoothly. I am very pleased and have recommended cub cadet for 10 years. Like Forrest said, "Aw lok it aw lot"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this unit all summer. It drives very nice easy to steer. The unit mows well even in heavy grasses. My lawn is a mine field and it has held up very well. Use Premium gas! I also always use The fuel additive TSC told me to use. I change the oil BEFORE the 20 hours I think the manual says. These are air cooled engines and they need clean good oil! take care of your engine it will pay you back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST lawn tractor at an affordable price! After reviewing and shopping for a new mower, I decided on the 50" enduro xt1. I have just over an acre with some hills and multiple trees. This tractor was by far the best deal out there. Hydrostatic transmission, 3 blade 50" deck, electronic pto, 24hp Kohler v-twin engine, LED headlights, 7 day a week customer support and the list goes on. All for under $2000! Cub Cadet will be the one to beat in 2015.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Season Update... This is my 2nd season running this tractor its been great. Still low on hours around 15hrs, did pm on it greased and lube and oil and filter just because. The fuel economy has gotten better every thing seams to be fine, the hydro trans seams fine its holding up great the Kohler engine is down right awesome ! right now we are in a drought and I haven't mowed in a month. Would like to see a better bagger from what people are saying maybe I would pick one up..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Enduro XT1 LT50 This is a cutting machine. Easy to get on and off. Easy to operate. More like a zero turn, power steering is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice running tractor I bought this model tractor about one month ago for my wife to cut our lawn. It seems like a good running machine and she seems to enjoy using it. Tractor has good power. I’m not totally happy with the hydrostatic drive as I’m used to a machine with a shift arm from forward to reverse. This tractor just has pedals, but seems to work ok. The cutting deck does a good job on our 2 acre property. I have not experienced any of the problems that the negative reviews are leaving but we have only used it a few times to cut the lawn. Tractor starts right up and I’m using fresh gasoline with stabilizer in it. Engine compartment is easy to get to so you can work on it if needed. I guess the only real complaint is not just this brand of lawn tractors but all of them are made of plastic. The days of a good sturdy metal body are long gone !!
