Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgared to the Cub Cadet from John Deere My local tractor supplier recently switched from a John Deere provider to Cub Cadet. I was skeptical when I first stopped in. I had previously purchased a john deere from them and used them for regular service. When the owner told me he was excited to have had the opportunity to sell cub cadet I was surprised thinking John Deere was the industry standard. However once I saw and sat in the new XT Enduro series tractors I was blown away. the styling and features far out weight those offered on the John Deeres. The elevated ride height, powerful engines and well thought out controls placement, and ultra comfortable high back seat all made my decision easy. I had read horror stories about the kohler engines but the sale agent assured me that those issues were on the earlier models and were all fully coved by the manufacturer. I have owned the tractor now for a few months and really enjoy cutting the lawn. My only complaint would be that the engine is much louder than my previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected I purchased this X2 42" Cub Cadet to replace a 14 year old John Deere LT150 that was giving me grief. The dealership here in Warner Robins Ga was very knowledgeable about the product and did not try to fast sell me. I liked the V twin Kohler engine and was impressed with the overall build quality. The purchase included delivery and a full tank of gas. I also purchased a front bumper from the Cub Cadet web site. First impressions were better than expected. The deck height adjustment offers 1/4" increments and is free floating. The engine is powerful and a bit noisy. The hydrostatic transmission is a breeze and beats the manual shift of my old John Deere hands down. The mower came with a mulching blade and my first cut of the lawn was impressive. All in all a satisfied customer .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm pretty happy with it. Overall, I'm pleased with the power and the cut quality. I have notice some wheel spin and traction issues on uneven terrain though. My previous mower was a John Deere, and I never had a problem with it slipping. I will also say that I wish it didn't have the arm rests. They get in my way too often, and I find myself mowing with them raised most of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I grew up in the 80's/90's using my old man's Cub Cadet tractor so I may be a bit partial. As you can tell by the reviews and recommendations, this is a fantastic piece of machinery. I purchased my Cub in the summer of 2018 and after mowing all summer I have zero complaints. It starts every time, runs smooth, blade removal is easy, changing the oil isn't a problem, and the turning radius is second to none. Definitely would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with the machine. Although I have never owned a Cub Cadet before I have had the pleasure to borrow other machines from neighbors. I have needed to because my previous riding mower were in the process of getting repaired and the grass just keeps growing. Well it is from the kindness of Cub Cadet owners that led me to look into one of my own when I needed to replace my riding mower. As a result I will let my neighbors borrow my Cub when they are in need. Cub Loaner program should be encouraged. Most of the other Cub's I have used were the lever Hydro hand operated. I personally prefer the new foot control. I chose the XT2 model as I have some steep ditches to mow and I find that it works as well as expected. It is actually easier to mow with than a push mower. It holds the ground well and does not slide down the hill like my old rider. It also should last longer with the heavier metal used in construction. The oil pump in the motor will also ensure a longer life on those slopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engine and transmission A+, mulch kit not good D- Twin cylinder engine and hydrostatic transmission is the only way to go. Much improved. Mulching kit discharge cover does not stay in place, needs improving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough Selection Happy with my Cub Love this tractor! I have 8 hours on it and I am so glad I went with the Cub Cadet. It replaced a John Deere with a Kohler motor and I was back and forth between the two brands. The XT2 has a few better features than the XT1 and a recommend staying away from buying from a big box store. My local dealer Ralph Helm was very helpful unlike the retired guy and teen at the Home Depot. I spent many hours researching and so far I am happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Machine; Great Price I use my tractor a lot for towing loads of brush, yard debris and storage items around the yard and between buildings. It's hilly terrain with lots of trees to maneuver around. The hydrostatic trans is super smooth and easy to use. I hauled several loads of gravel, easily 500lbs and had plenty of power even at crawl speeds to safely transport from one end of the property to the other. It's actually safer than the large farm tractor because of the better speed control. Works great for a mower too of course, has compartments for my gloves, a drink and broom for wiping the deck when done. The power deck wash is a nice feature too. I would probably say the best feature for a long day of mowing is the seat, it's adjustable and is surprisingly very comfy! Overall great multiple use machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made with easy access for servicing! This is my first cub cadet and I must say that I am very impressed. I have used this lawn tractor going on its second mowing season and it is a well made machine. Maintenance is a breeze. Steering is responsive with tight turn radius. Seat with arm rests is comfortable. This mower has plenty of power with the kohler v twin engine and the quality of the cut is better than the competitors. Thanks cub cadet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great the best I bought my Cub Cadet LX42 at Doebler Brothers in Middletown, Ohio from Bill Doebler. It must be noted this is my first riding lawn mower and when I entered the store I had no knowledge what so ever. Bill walked me thru my purchase, I first looked at a larger model, but after telling Bill my lot size he advised I didn't need that size and sold me the smaller model, which costs less. Delivery was free along with full set up, there were no hidden costs and Bill saved me money from the start. Just a few days ago I called Bill, as the season is coming to a close and I asked how much winter storage service would cost, he asked how many hours I had on the mower (15) and if I had changed the oil at 5 hours (which I did) he then advised no service would be needed and there was no sense of spending extra money that you did not have to, and then he explained what I should do for winter storage. Today I stopped in to buy my first snow blower, once again with no knowledge I picked a model out and then after explaining my driveway size, I was advised no need to spend the extra money!!! the next smaller size will do the job. Now I am 65 years old and a retired Law Enforcement Officer and I have never in all my years encounter a company that saves you money by not selling you what you don't need and not servicing something that really is not in need of servicing. Now on to the Cub, it starts all the time, cuts the grass in a even pattern, rides great and I smile ever time I am on it, no issues or problems at all. In closing, Doebler Brothers are THE BEST, and I would suggest and recommend them, for sales and service. Frank J Smith.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS! After using a push mower for the last 15 years at my current property, and being continually aggravated with the mowing results, my neighbor generously offered his rider for my use. After a few uses, I knew right then and there that to reduce the time and unsatisfactory results, I needed to upgrade to a quality lawn tractor. After many hours of research, I visited a Cub Cadet Dealer and reviewed the XT1 and XT2 series. Decided to go with the XT2 LX42 as it had plenty of power and performance from the Kohler Twin Engine! I also optioned for the Cub mulching kit. After the first mowing, I knew I had made the right choice! This machine leaves a beautiful cut and has the necessary tight turning radius to easily handle the minor obstructions I have to deal with. I am currently at 8 hours of ownership, and now, for the first time in many years, actually look forward to mowing our lawn! My wife also shares the duties, and is very comfortable using the XT2. I performed the 5 hour service, and was pleasantly surprised at the ease of maintenance of changing the oil and filter; along with servicing the air filter. And should the fuel filter need service, it's right there above the oil filter offering easy access. Machine controls are well thought out: simple activation for reverse mowing, easy manipulation of forward and reverse foot controls, plenty of deck height options with ease of use, convenient blade engagement controls, all the necessary safety features, and a super comfortable seat with armrests. I also use the Smart Jet deck washing feature after each mowing. At this point of ownership, my Wife and I are completely satisfied with the features, performance, and price of this well engineered mower. Highly recommended!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from XT2 LX42 I just bought this Cub Cadet XT2 LX42 today and I love it !!! I read a lot of reviews on all the other brands and decided on this model . I'm mowing a 1/4 acre and behind my property is my brother-in-law who has 1 acre that I mow also . It's early to judge the mower now but so far no complaints except when the lawn done . LOL

I watched them uncrate it at the dealer put gas in it, checked the oil, installed the bumper, fired it up and I ran around the area.. Received it the next day, mowed yard and haven't looked back.. Would highly recommend this unit..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than John Deere! This is a Nice Machine! It beats the heck out of my 10 year old John Deere 42" Plenty of power and can even mow and bag wet grass! You can tell that the engineering team really put some thought into the entire design ...including the bagger. The mow in reverse safety feature is much easier to use than John Deere's version. The gas tank is huge and that's a big plus for me as well. The only problem that I've had with this tractor was that at 9.5 Hrs. the idler pulley bearing on the drive belt gave out. Obviously a bad bearing. The dealer was Great! They came picked it up installed a new idler pulley and returned the machine to me with absolutely no charge! Nice customer service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid with minor quality issues I have had this tractor for 1 year and for the most part it is a solid tractor. There are however several issues that I would not expect with a tractor from this manufacturer, The first issue is the choke cable when I pull it out from the dash the entire mount slips out of the dash itself. I have to hold it at the dash in order for it to work properly. there should be a better way than this to work. The second and more serious issue is that the shoot for the bagger does not fit snugly nor does the cover for the mulching kit. It runs very well and cuts the lawn evenly. the 10" turning radius is very cool. I believe that it will last but would not recommend it if you have an incline as it does not have the power to mow on a hill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I bought this mower in late August 2018. It was a replacement for another brand of mower that kept breaking down on me. The mower did great for the finish of the 2018 season but let me down the first time out in 2019. Not even a full trip around the yard and it chewed up and slung the deck belt. The mower is currently back at the dealership awaiting repair....hopefully in the next three weeks. I bought this mower to have something new that I could depend on...at this time, that is not the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design Ecstatic with my purchase. After sadly retiring my 2008 Toro lawn tractor I am astounded how the chore of mowing has been reduced. Great performance and very easy to use. I have many shrubs to mow around and the maneuverability of this unit is terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardworking, strong mower This is a strong mower. It does everything we need it to on our 2 acre property. It is comfortable to ride and easy to maneuver around the many trees we have. I have a hard time getting my wife to give me a chance to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine Replacing a 14 year old machine dont want to spend more money on it. so after searching for months i decided on a cub cadet. i almost went with a xt 1 50 inch 24 horse motor. but after searching and reading up i decided to go with the xt2 42 inch 22 horse motor. it used to take me 2 hours to mow. ijust mowed today for the first time with the xt2 and i cut my time in half. plenty of power, love the steering almost seems like power steering. cuts smooth my yard looks great. love this machine. need to order bumper and arm rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lawn tractor I have had the Xt2 LX 42 with manual PTO in use for 1.5 hours. Easy to steerm starts easily with key, easy to use. My only criticism is the R feature access by turning the key to the central yellow position. I found this difficult to engage the red light and quite a few times was stuck trying to reverse without stalling the Kohler 22 HP motor. Overall I am very pleased. I was particularly impressed by the dealer, Sievers Equip Co of Auburn, IL. I went in to view the XT 2 and decided I wanted it. I was introduced to the service manager and recieived instruction on the features,They delivered to my house within 45 minutes.
