Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could Not Be Happier After reading many reviews on riding mowers I settled on this. I'm I glad I did! Have 10 hours on it now with pure grin on face. It is a great machine. Steering and power is something else. Love the arm rests. Very comfortable to drive. Mowing in reverse is easy and simple to engage. I changed the oil after 5 hr. No mess at all. The oil drain is great. Turn it on and drain it into a gallon milk jug. I mow about an acre. The only complaint I have is I wish I had 5 acres. Love to get on this mower and cruise the yard! All I can say is forget green and go with the yellow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy so far I researched lawn tractors and arrived at this one for my application. I chose the XT2 because I wanted to purchase thru my local dealer for future parts and service etc. Talking with the dealer he explained the differences between the different series. So far I have about 15hrs on it and it has performed well. It is faster and smoother than lawn tractors I've had in the past and quality of materials feels excellent. I think my favorite overall part of this tractor is the smooth positive steering and exceptionally tight turning radius. I cut around a lot of trees and the ability to turn tight is really beneficial. All deck and cutting controls are solid and don't feel flimsy. The cut in reverse override is straight forward and easy to use. I've read some complaints about having to do this at all but I really don't see the big deal its as simple as turning the key and pushing a button. Overall I'm happy with the purchase of this American made tractor and the care I received from the dealer. I may add a mulching kit to clean up leaves this fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes cutting grass more comfortable I really like my new XT2 Enduro Cub Cadet. It's the first tractor that fits me well. I'm 6'2 it has ample seat adjustment arm rests for comfort. What I like best is the control hills are easy to navigate with the power of the vtwin Kohler engine , the powerful engine never hesitates even in thicker grass, coming down those hills is a breese to with the hydrostat transmission, control is the best that I've experienced with any other tractor I've owned. Taking care of 3 acres is easier with my Cub Cadet XT2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I just purchased the XT2 LX42 and I must say. This isn't your grandpa's cub cadet. I've been using cub cadet products since my grandpa taught me to drive a tractor when I was 5. (Forty some years). Today's tractor is impressive. No tools to remove the hood, easy access to air filter, no need to lift the hood to check fuel tank or fill it. Arm rests on the seat! Spin off oil filter, easy drain oil. This tractor rides smooth. I am IMPRESSED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMERICAN INGENUITY i pick-up my rider on 05/06/15 brought it home and took it for a test mow i mowed the section of lawn around the house in less than 1 hour nice even cut I will write another review later in the summer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Motor is powerful, easy on gas, smooth running. Tractor is easy to steer and operate, not tired when you are done cutting one-acre. Starts first time every time and runs flawlessly. Easy to fuel. Overall just a great tractor, I have two XT-2's, both great machines. Worst thing about these tractors is getting off to use the Weed Whip / String Trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I needed a new lawn tractor. After quite a bit of looking, I chose the Cub Cadet XT2 42 KH. I was impressed with the power, the turning ability, the comfort, the ease of operation and the cut. I am glad I went with the XT2. I like the extra features and heavier components.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, not so good Love cub cadet,was a dealer years ago. XT2 42 super product except cruse control does not work, LED lights come from factory with lenses covered on inside with dust. makes no difference, Mowing in dusty grass fills lights with more dust and clippings. XT2 specs includes traction control which does not work. Short steer radius excellent. K 7000 engine excellant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mower I live on acre lot with some hills and trees an looked around at other brand mowers an decided on this one. What I like about this one is the new style of the mower and the power of the new v-twin 7000 series Kohler engine plenty of power. I also like the big seat springs for comfort the ease of the tight steering radius for going around obstacles, the front roller bearings in the wheels for smooth riding an the transmission that requires no shifting into forward or reverse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cub my dad always had cubs and they gave great service I got an XT2 with 42" cut 22hp Kohler motor the only thing this mower needs is a switch so you can turn the lights off other than that it is a very good mower

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was leery about buying cub after reading reviews of prior model years. But after mowing the first time with my new XT2 I'm very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we hoped for and More! Our old lawn tractor had mowed its last in the midst of some dark financial straits for our family, three downsizings in a span of four years, and a reboot to an entirely different, much lower paying career. As we pressed forward we regained somewhat, enough to begin consideration of a new lawn tractor. Our dollars limited and even more precious, it was with this mindset I began to research what was available. We've a good-sized yard in a farming area, were looking for a strong machine that was up to the challenge, offered innovative features, was built here in the USA, was offered at an attractive price. The Cub Cadet we selected over models from all the other competition met all of these marks, plus one more: with its Warranty, Cub Cadet stood head and shoulders above all. We contacted several dealers, really liked what our local dealer had to offer, and inked a deal quickly. The dealer offered the real sense they could be trusted from sale and through the anticipated many years of service. The Cub Cadet snowthrower that continues to serve our family winter after lengthening winter was going to have a Cub Cadet stablemate. We opted for the Cub Cadet XT2 Enduro LX42KH, its bigger, Kohler-built engine and upgraded tires in particular catching our attention. The LX42KH is tough, shows its quality in how it's built, how it starts, operates. And that hydrostatic transmission? Very sweet. Get mowing, set the cruise control, and rediscover the joy of yardwork. The engine runs smoothly, and early experience shows it's economical, efficient, another plus. Control is easy, sight lines are clear, and the ergonomically designed seating and steering wheel add to the simple enjoyment one finds when settling in for a spin. Have a beverage with you? My choice is a bottled water, but I'm sure this model's cup holder will securely tote your favorite beverage, too. The mowing deck features a pair of blades on this model, and access for servicing is also easy. I pulled the deck to install a mulching kit, was finished soon after I began the swap. Our lawn had by fiscal necessity been moved lower on our priorities list, but it's almost overnight looking much better thanks to the smooth, even cut from this mower deck, and the finely chopped organics that are being returned to our turf to assist in its rebirth. Once the deck needs cleaning, I'm looking forward to trying the handy port at which a garden hose is connected, the deck underside then cleaned. And if darkness approaches the LED lighting casts ample bright to finish the chores for the day and return the Cub Cadet to its place in our barn. Maintenance is easy; checking, topping the oil is a cinch. Refueling is straightforward, that generously sized fuel tank extending the range. (You may have to stop and replenish that favorite beverage.) Access to engine components is outstanding. One gets the very real sense of how much went into this exceptionally designed and superbly constructed lawn tractor. Our new Cub Cadet XT2 Enduro LX42KH is EVERYTHING we hoped for, and MORE. Why spend more for a paint color, only to get less, and a poorer warranty? Just c'mon over to Cub Cadet like our family did. You'll be impressed and delighted as are we. One gets the very real sense this machine was designed by folks who know power equipment, know what they wanted to design and delivered on the concept.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well engineered product Researched all of the new riding mowers and was impressed with the overall quality and rigid construction. Cub Cadet has gone back to what made them a great lawn tractor in the past. The mulching kit works well with the new bolt on design of the shoot plug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy owner Very happy with my purchase of the XT2, it is a few grades above my previous rider. The 22 HP Kohler doesn't slow down a bit when cutting my thick grass/weeds. My mowing time has been shortened almost half as I don't have to slow down to get a nice cut. The seat is comfortable and the armrests add a nice touch. I did my first oil change at just over 5 hours and it was a breeze. The gas pedal and reverse pedal took a little to get used to but I really like it. At this point I have no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features at a Competitive Price! I did a lot of research, creating a spreadsheet with eight 42 inch tractors in consideration. Cub Cadet XT-1 42 In. won out, but when I went to my local Cub Cadet dealer, the move to the XT-2 with a two-cylinder Kohler engine was an easy choice for a comparatively small premium. The machine's controls are very well thought out with easy and logical foot controls that keep your hands on the wheel once you start mowing. The quick shift to mowing in reverse is a real time saver...my old machine required a button to be depressed every time I wanted to back up with the blade engaged. The easy transition to mowing in reverse, easy foot control of an impressive speed range, coupled with a remarkably tight and easy turning radius has cut my mowing time in half! It has a comfortable seat that is easy to adjust if I ever let my wife get on it. I recently had to cut wet grass, and the built-in Smart Jet system for washing under the deck was great! I purchased through an authorized Cub Cadet Dealer rather than a big-box retailer and highly recommend that. They delivered my tractor fully assembled, accurately adjusted, and ready to go to work. They took care of all my registration and the postcard back from Cub Cadet acknowledging my purchase was a nice touch! I can tell that maintenance is going to be easy and I am very pleased with this machine. It earns my highest recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Wow! I have had this tractor for over a month now! It has performed beyond my expectations the power and turning radius is awesome and the price is awesome. After having several experiences with tractors over the past 10 years I am so glad I found this tractor. Being able to mow in reverse is amazing and make the job so much easier. I will never buy anything else what a great product. It's actually fun to drive the bagger attachment is great and does a great job. I have had 1-2 acre property for over the last ten years and never have I enjoyed mowing and picking up leaves so much. I have over 100 oak trees on my property and it is so easy to cleanup and saves me so much time it's amazing. Perfect size and power for my needs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from quality product. Nice features. I absolutely like the reverse override button. Nice big sturdy throttle lever and excellent Kawasaki engine, which by the way is an exceptionally quiet running motor for it's size. I also like the short turning radius, for getting in and out of tight areas when mowing. Very comfortable seat and thick steering wheel. I would like to see a headlight switch installed, so that the lights are not on all the time. I like the reverse override system. And placement of all controls and levers. Very ergonomically designed. I also like the slick oil drain hose and how it stores out of the way in it's own little clamp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent mower We shopped around for all products this past spring. We ended up buying the XT-2 42" cut. We would have purchased the 46" but it was not in stock and there weren't any in the supply chain at the time. We are extremely happy and satisfied with this machine and would strongly recommend it anyone considering a purchase. We bought it from Creekside Sales in Pendleton NY and they were the main reason we bought a Cub Cadet. Sales and service were second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review after 12 months use I was going to buy a zero turn with the steering wheel but after test riding the XT2 42"in the yard it was almost a zero turn but not... It turns very tightly for a traditional mower...My motor is a twin but I think it's a Cub Cadet not a Kohler but it never lacks power, I originally bought a LT1042 in 2008 and traded it for a used TTX1048 but it was too big for my yard, I traded it in on a new XT2 and My wife and I love it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Dog! Had a great John Deere for 12 years. Was ready to replace it with same Company. Then read some review on Cub Cadet, and visited dealership. First, dealership was outstanding people. They showed me a comparable model, and found construction and features to be superior. Purchased the Cub Cadet that day, and never looked back. This is a top performing machine, and I could not ask for anything better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy customer so far I replaced a 25 year old John Deere 185 with this lawn tractor. I now have just 5 hours of run time on it. So far, it has been flawless. The cut is clean, the grass dispersion is great, and the steering is easy with a good turning radius. It has plenty of power to get thru even very tall grass/weeds. At this point I am a happy customer and I have recommended this lawn tractor to one of my neighbors. My only complaint is not necessarily with CubCadet, but with all tractor vendors. Lawn tractors are LOUD. If the CubCadet engineers could figure out a way to reduce the noise without sacrificing power or performance they would surely grab a much larger portion of the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine I just got my XT2 from Dennis Equipment co. and they are great . They delivered it for free and offer free pick up when it needs to be serviced. the mower rides like a cloud and has lots of power. it cuts my lawn in no time flat and does a great job too. it was done so fast had time to go to the beach with my wife and my dog a big plus. i can't wait for the lawn to grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really great tractor I have had four tractors before this one and until now my 20 year old Wheelhorse couldn't be beat. You have a great product, keep up the great work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better then I was told!! Bought the XT2 in July of 2015 and have used it each week to cut 1/2 acre lawn and I am impressed at how easy and how even this tractor cuts. The lawn has some small hills here and there and the Cub handles it with ease. The seat is very comfortable and the ride is sweet. Mowing the lawn has never been better. I cut the lawn 4 times on 1 tank of gas which seems good to me. The XT2 is built strong and looks great in the black and yellow and the price is right. I recommend this tractor over all others hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OVERALL EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS I have been very impressed with this mower. Tight turns, great cut, more than enough power and good traction. My only complaint is that the "cruise control" were a little easier to use and engaged at lower speeds. The XT2 is only $200 more than the XT1 and well worth it.
Date published: 2015-09-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great riding mower I checked out all the big brand names and did a comparison of all the features I wanted. I was surprised when the XT2 came out at the top of the list. I have never owned a cub, but have owned a JD and Husk. I really like the upgraded engine on the XT2. Plenty of power and good on gas. I also really like the reverse cutting feature of the cub. You set the key in a different position, press a yellow button once, and you are good for your entire cutting time. Also worth mentioning is the steering of this guy. It is hands down the easiest mower to steer I have ever tried. It is almost like it has power steering! This mower is really fast too. I think it is rated at 5.5mph, but it easily beats that. I still have my old Husk which is rated the same, but the cub blows it away. My only complaint about this mower is the starting. The starter sounds very rough, almost like its grinding, but that seems to be the norm. All in all, great job Cub!
