Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower This mower is great, we were able to get done in half the time as normal and it left the grass looking amazing. It is our first zero turn and very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT'S A TANK Maintain it well and you will get lots of use out of it. I use this residential tractor in my landscaping company's fleet and it puts up to hours of use daily everyday. Superior cut quality and power. I've never been through grass too tall or too thick for this beast -- just keep the blades sharpened. It has no problem hauling mulch and dirt with the two large turf tires (top dressing a lawn). It will not wheelie, but instead provides a smooth, responsive acceleration. The lights and cut quality could be better, but that's why Cub Cadet offers commercial products. It is more than adequate for residential use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mower Have owed my ZT 1 50 for about 2 months now, and couldn't be any happier with the mower. 1st zero turn I've owed and love it!! Had to practice maneuvering it around before I cut the grass, which was not an issue because it handles so easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I bought this wonder machine Cub Cadet - ZT1 50 to help on my 3 acres and boy I tell you. I sure was super surprise at the way it moves, powerful punch, and guides. With this Cub Cadet - ZT1 50 it takes me around 1 hour now to mow my 3 acres. I recommend this Cub Cadet - ZT1 50 to everybody. It's easy to guide especially for a woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mower Great cut with three blades and strong engine. Fabricated deck is excellent and stays clean. I did add the arm rest kit for more comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved over previous generation ZTR mowers First use was awesome. Seat is especially comfortable as is the foot deck mat. Speed was very fast, cutting height selection was so easy and so many grass height levels to choose from. I really like the LED headlights for the fall nights coming soon. This mower got much better traction than my other ZTR, no more left rear wheel spinning. Only things I would change would be to have an easy-adjust seat (kind of a hassle to take bolts out to adjust it) and the handles have too far of a throw to get to top speed. I might also add a USB port for cell phones too, just saying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great residential zero turn I bought this mower about 1.5 months ago and wanted to wait to leave a review after a few cuts. I have cut my lawn 5 times with this mower now and I am impressed. I am coming from a lawn tractor and this mower has cut my mowing time in half. Easy to maneuver and cuts evenly on a mostly flat yard. I also purchased the striping kit and makes a slight difference on the striping. Just wished the rollers had more weight to make the grass bend more to show noticeable stripes in the yard. A little aeriation this fall and some KY31 seed and next season hope to have better results. Overall, a purchase I will make again in the future with the cub cadet brand.

It's a powerful machine and I would recommend to anyone that has a big yard to mow this makes time go back with a breeze. The headlights really help when the sun is going down.The different levels of the mower really ensure that you can get your lawn looking awesome. I Highly recommend this mower it is absolutely the best of all time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cut my yard time from 2hrs to 30min I've been wanting one for a while and finally decided to get one and its great! I have 1 acre and after getting acclimated to the controls its a dream. This zero turn has the power and deck I was looking for and it has larger tires than competitors at the same price. The only thing I have noticed and I'm going to get it looked at is the front right wheel starts to squeak about 20 min into cutting but it doesn't effect anything. over all a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice I ordered it online, and it was delivered the very next day! The gentleman that delivered it was professional and knew what he was talking about when he dropped it off. Cut my lawn the same day I got it and super happy with how easy it is to use and the great job it did! It’s also a good looking machine. Happy happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultima ZT1 50 Purchased this mower on 9/27/19 from a local dealer. I did a lot of research before buying. Looked at a lot of big brand names along with Cub Cadet. For the price point, the ZT1 50 seemed like the best bang for the buck. 23hp Kawasaki motor, 50in fab. deck, LED headlights just to name a few features. I've been on a few zero turns, but this is my first. Have only had lawn tractors. Easy starting, awesome cut and very fast. Purchased the mulch kit as well, does a fine job. I own 1 acre, cut my mowing time in half. Also does well on my steep hills. You will not be disappointed with this mower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cut, comfort, and speed. Holds debris I replaced a 17 y.o. lawn tractor. Zero turn is the way to go. It cuts MUCH faster, smoother, and completely. It gets under low bush and tree canopies. But the mower chassis and the welded deck have a LOT of places that catch and hide debris.You DO NOT want to hose the deck bearings when not turning and you can't do it with them turning while sitting on the seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet Ultima Zero Turn Terrific Mower The Ultimate Zero Turn 50" mower is a truly excellent mower and does a significantly better job of creating a nice, level grass cutting. It is easy to start and very easy to adjust the cutting height with a foot pedal and dial. The deck design is especially good in that it has excellent discharge behavior and that translates to very good performance when using the bagger. In terms of needed improvements, I would list a couple: (a) Add extra springing to the seat, as the bumper cushions are barely adequate in making travel over roots or other bumps tolerable; and (b) Update the manuals for accessories to the new mower design, e.g. the bagger manual does not correctly reflect the chute adapter (specified but not actually needed) or the frame holes that are supposed to be pre-drilled (but aren't) for the front counter-weights when using the bagger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ZT1 50 is EXCELLENT! After a couple of weeks of research on various mowers I decided to go with the ZT1 50. It was delivered Friday 5/22/20 & used the mower over the weekend. After 6 hrs of use I am very satisfied! I read about certain issues with the deck vibrating while the PTO is engaged; I did NOT experience this issue. I cut about 3.5 acres & this mower definitely cut my time in half. I have uneven terrain with slopes/hills & several trees. It maneuvered so smoothly & was a joy to operate. The design & features are definitely an A-plus in my book. I will update review in a few months. Thanks, Cub Cadet for such an awesome mower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I had hoped for Wife and I purchased a new Cub Cadet Ultima ZT1 50 to replace an aging Husqvarna Z4818 that served us very well (566 hrs). We have both mowed our 2 acres with the mower and feel we can provide a good early review. Pros: Sturdy construction and good design - welded tubular steel frame is as solid as it looks. No flex at all; thus no metal fatigue. The deck is welded rather than stamped steel like the Husky. Although I would have liked a heavier gauge steel, it should be more than adequate for residential use. Because the frame is so strong, there is no need for a lot of other structural sheet metal that makes cleaning difficult and inhibits cooling of transmissions. Asymmetrical front wheel alignment may be unique and allows you to cut closer to obstacles. Paint quality seems excellent. Deck height adjustment provide small increments and very easy to set. Easy of handling - turning bars feel very good. Controls are very responsive and smooth. You soon forget you are driving the mower. You just look where you want to go and it seems to go there on its own. I particularly appreciate the large rear tires. Power - 23 hp Kawasaki engine is more than adequate. We let the native grasses in a large area of our yard mature and set seed in the spring at which time the grass is very thick and 30" high. The new mower made a pass at 4.5 (max deck height) and a second pass at 3. We cut at walking speed and full deck width with no bogging and excellent clearance of the cuttings. The engine didn't change its tune at all. Engine makes about the same noise and uses the same amount of gasoline as the B&S on the old Husky. Cons: Seat durability?: Seat is comfortable, but nothing special. It has softer foam padding and a pullover vinyl upholstery that may not be as durable as a molded seat. Headlights: They are a nice feature, but one popped out of its opening when bumped by a tree limb. Glad they are there though. Final thought: We bought from a local family owned mower shop. It was great to meet them, and I know where I can buy belts, blades, and service as needed. Big Box stores don't need the money and won't service the mower. Buy from your neighbors and at the same price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zero Turn We love this mower. Easy to start. Very simple to change the cutting height. The seat is comfortable and well made. The arms are simple to use. You turn them like you turn a shopping cart. It only took me a couple tries to get it. I have 2 acres and it took about 10-15 minutes to mow the whole lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design This is a well designed mower. Im one of those people that actually enjoys mowing and Im somewhat OCD about it. Im also OCD about my equipment. This is a solid piece of equipment designed for cutting grass. Not a lot of plastic parts to break. Easy access to everything including a removable floor plate which will make belt maintenance and debree removal a breeze. 23 hp Kaw Eng. ( a 24 or 25) would have put it over the top but the 23 does a good job. A gas guage would have been nice. The twin bagger is a great design. Large retractable shoot. Comes with front end weights. Bags well. But if I had other options I wouldnt have bought this bagger. The cloth bags are flemsy as well as the snap together cover. I dont see this thing surving one season. And removal is almost as big a pain as putting it on. I purchased two 5/16-18 Clamping Knobs to replace the 5/16 nuts to make removal a little faster and easier. Planning to order mulching kit. Hope its better quality than the bagger. Over all I'd still give the mower 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I Could've Asked For In a Mower! I work full time an hour away from home each day. Finding time to push mow three acres of land has been a job that has been impossible for me to conquer. Within a couple of hours I was able to finally do this. The speed and power of this mower made easy work of what had been days of grueling work. It throughly cuts the grass without leaving behind strays. I am not exactly sure of its speed threshold but it can definitely go fast. It is extremely comfortable and easy to use. Better still is that it has only been fueled once, so it also has great gas mileage! A must for anyone with a large yard! I absolutely love it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mows great, quality not so much. I made this purchase based on comparing it to competitors. I have a Bermuda yard that I mow at 1.25 inches. The cut is fantastic. My problem is with the quality of the mower. It has many areas with VERY thin paint. The under side has areas with no paint at all, only primer. There are several metal to metal points, resulting in the paint being gone in only 4 hours of use. Buy a can of touch up paint and be prepared to use it a lot if you don't want rust. Also the deck jerks and jumps something fierce when you engage it. I engage it at idle speed and it still does it. It has to be a design issue. I bought the extended warranty so at least I'm covered for 6 years. Again, the cut is perfect. I just wish the quality was better to start out with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More to be desired! Let's see... I have used this mower four times now and have put 11.6 hours on it. Okay let's start with looks.. it is hands down the best looking mower out there, besides the spartan mowers. Good power from the Kawasaki motor. Its pretty quiet. Its quick. Turns well. Seat is comfy... Now the bad.. the deck has a lot of vibration which is not something I like at all.. the head lights need a toggle switch. The gas tank needs a fill level indicator of some sort because you literally have to pull the seat over or open the gas cap to see the fuel level, which you can not do while on the mower. The oil changes are messy not because of the oil plug because they actually put a tube which makes that part pretty easy.. but the oil filter is a huge mess to change and not very well thought out. The choke lever is in the wrong location. Every time I go to pull the PTO I catch myself wanting to pull the choke and have to hunt for it.. and the blades are definitely not the best because you have to mow the same area twice.. Now over all.. It's an attractive mower that is worth the money. And I would buy it again.. I probably wouldn't recommend to a friend because of the bad things about this mower. But if its reliable then I would definitely recommend this.. but i only have used it 11.6 hours.. so time will tell..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful My cub Cadet rider of 14 years was finally getting beat up. Have always wanted a zero turn. This one is great. I used a zero turn for 10 years cutting the church lawn but never thought I could afford one. Financing and price are spot on. Mowing is a pleasure and the ride is smooth. I wish I had a bigger lawn. 3 acres isn't enough.
