Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Maneuver We purchased this mower to replace a basic self propelled unit. The front caster wheel configuration was very appealing to us for the ease of maneuvering. The variable speed control was an unexpected bonus. Unit starts like a charm, maneuvers very easily and has plenty of power for heavy grass or uphill movement. Very pleased with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mower, average bagger This is my second Cub Cadet mower, the first was the SRC 621 and lasted about 13 years. The new mower is very powerful and is very easy to operate. The one pull start is great and the new deck wash option is very handy. However, the bagger leaves a lot to be desired. The clippings pile on the left side of the bag and fall out when removing the bag. If not for this I would have given it an excellent rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Mower, with a few tweaks it would be great Light nimble mower. They greatly improved the drive system from the old model........ however, the old model had grease zerks on the front casters and the new model did not. Quickly remedied. The engine kill cable breaks off at the handle bars. A warranty issue quickly fixed. Needs to be a little more robust there. I have 3 mowers and they all broke before the end of May and my friend just lost his here in June on new mowers. So probably needs looked at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must buy!!!! The best mower ever!! Starts right away even if it is a weak pull!! The Zero Turn Wheeles make it all the better! The only thing that does not work on it is the deck way. The mower is littarly effertless! I give it an honest ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I Highly Recomend this Mower!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke the first week. Tractor supply wont fix The start cable snapped the first week. Tractor supply wont replace or fix the part. The mower does always start but it’s extremely heavy and bulky in any condition. Should have just got the cheapest one

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome mower I bought this a year ago and it is awesome. The caster wheels are the best. I love the my speed drive control. I have found that it doesn’t have the power to cut super super dense and long grass, but I wouldn’t expect it to. This thing is an amazing value. The way that the bag attaches is not the best. The whole area around where the bag meets the mower is poorly designed. That whole area gets clogged with grass clippings and I have had the bag fall off numerous times. A redesign of that and this mower would get a full 5 stars from me. Right now it’s at about a 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the front sweval wheels, deck cleaning I boughtthis mower 6 weeks ago. I looked at alot of mowers, I choose this one because of the front wheel design, because my yard requires alot of turning while mowing. I have used it a few times and can say this mower saves me about 20 minutes every time simple because of the zero turn wheels. The ability to wash the deck is super nice as wheel my garage never smells like a lawn mower anymore. I really am happy with this mower

Rated 4 out of 5 by from almost a home run 4 stars on a awesome more. There is always room for improvement. I bought this mower Memorial Day weekend in 2019. At that time all I wanted was a mower to cut grass i did not know at that time what i was about to get into. At the time of purchase cut was not on my radar. This is why I am giving four stars. With what I know now this mower would be grand slam with a 4.5 inch cut hight. I bought my mower Hauters in Chardon Ohio. The reps were country type with great attitudes. After a year of use I have to say its still works like the day I bought it. As for how I used the mower over the last year? Well I have beat it up a little. This spring has been very difficult to keep on top of the yard. I have bogged it on wet 5 inch high Turf Type Tall Fesuce. Yes I had all the expected outcomes one could have with cutting a dense thick wet yard. No this mower is not immune to bogging out. I did it a few times on my yard, only in the back yard. My particular cultivar of grass performs best at 4.5 to 5 inches during the heat and drought of the summer. Its now about June 1 2020 and backbyard should be growing closer to 5 inches to help build its mass for the heat. I should also be able to allow it to hit 6 inches before I cut it during the heat of the summer. This helps reduce the heat stress of the yard. The less cuts I make the less stress it has. SIDE DISCHARGE does what you expect it to do. With my yard I got the cut I expected but the striping was not as hard as I would have liked at 3.75 inches high. I did have some clumping with a wet yard. Again this is expected and is no way a hit on the mower. I used the side discharge for my first cut season. BAGGING I started the season (2020) bagging my clippings. We started composting and I want to help add to the quality of the compost. Plus with the somewhat wet season it helped keep the yard cleaner. Again clumping and clogging did happen, not a hit on the mower. Wet grass is going to clump and clog on a walk behind. Striping did improve but still not as hard as I like to see. MULCHING about a month ago I started multching. I have not had a good cut as of yet because of the weather so I can't say how well it stripes. I will include some pics that will show the quality of cut one can expect to see.
