Rated 3 out of 5 by from It did not live up to exspectations Had to replace front tires ,had to repair bent belt guide and belt, front tire bearings and tires had to be resealed now back in to the shop will not move. hope it is not the transmit ion. between repairs and regular maintenance and the general change in steering (getting loose) I have been disappointed because Cubs are supposed to be the best. I don't enjoy my free Cub t-shirt any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Cut, Handles Like a Dream Purchased the zforce s 48 from local dealer in Pittsburgh, PA. Got a mulch and stripe kit installed. Very solid construction. This thing cuts like a dream and leaves a decent stripe. It will turn uphill on a slope with no problem and did NOT tear up my burnt grass. Perfectly straight lines. The ride is a little rough if you don't have a golf course for a yard so just lay off the throttle a little. Has plenty of power and is actually on the quieter side (prior mower was a Cub LT1 tractor). Can not comment on durability as of yet but it definitely seems like an extremely well put together piece of equipment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor follow through on design The foot controls are cumbersome and awkward to use. The deck lift has printed numbers for height not visible by operator. You must do toe touches to adjust the deck height while operating mower. They assume you mow only at one height. The forward control interferes with the reverse control due to where your heel must rest due to deck edge. Deck gauge wheels are not greasable because they don't have grease zerks, but instead injection molded holes that don't accept grease.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cuts great but bagger and deck need improvements. The mower itself has plenty of power and does a nice job of cutting. The foot pedals could be positioned a little better to make it easier to go from pedal to pedal. The deck height adjustment pedal is cumbersome and when you change height adjustments, you almost have to get off of the mower to see the number of the height setting that you want is. The mower had a wide wheelbase which is good for stability but not the greatest when going around certain objects. The deck sticks out 2-1/2" - 3" past the rear tire. I still have issues going around some trees where the tire rubs the tree or the plastic storage box above the tire rubs the tree. The bagging system is terrible. If there is any moisture in the grass, forget it. There is a baffle that gets bolted on the bottom of the deck that is supposed to help the bagger's performance. Unfortunately, it also holds grass clippings on top of it and when you use the deck wash/cleaning system, the clippings get saturated but don't get washed out. After a few days the wet clippings begin to ferment and smell real bad. The only way to clean it out is to take off the deck (which is a pain) take off the baffle and scoop out the wet, sloppy grass. To take off the deck, one person has to take a wrench and take the tension off of the belt tightener while another person takes the belt off of the pulley because one person cannot reach both at the same time. At this day and age, it should not take 2 people to take off a mower deck. My old mower didn't need 2 people. The mower has power and cuts great but several improvements have to be made to this machine.
