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 Performs as expected Performs as expected, but somewhat disappointed. 1) Manuals received were rain soaked. Home Depot would not send replacement manuals but offered to print out the online manual 2) outer frame/cage not attached on one side. Although covered under warranty, servicing dealer said there have a 3 week backlog. I also have to find a way to get it there.

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 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely insane How is it that you’re approved “authorized dealers” don’t have a clue on how to order from y’all how to swipe the TD bank card for purchasing and you yourselves don’t have a way to Order directly from your website seeing as to how there’s no way to add to cart . Customer service Hangs up and having me wait on hold for 45 minutes and your online chat feature is a joke as I’ve waited for over an hour and half trying to get some help this afternoon. WHY IS IT so hard for me to give you my money to Buy Your products ? Like what even is that ?

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 1 out of 5 by from 20 hours and it’s in shop for 4 weeks !!! Bought at the end of April, the middle of July the engine started running rough and had no power. Sent it to Taylor power equipment for repair on July 18, it is now august 18 and I still have no mower. Rediculous!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works good no manual I bought this new off Home depot. They didnt had the spare key or manual for it. They printed off a part of the manual, only a part that does not tell what oil to put in it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional limited Recently purchased. Battery died after first use. Repaired it but it was a surprise. Cuts well but is unable to handle about half of my property. Stability is lacking on most slopes, even those of 15 degrees. I need to begin the lawn with a garden tractor and end up needing it for about 60 percent of the cut. Although the zero turn has better speed because of obstacles its actually a little slower than the tractor. Its more fun to drive but thats all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This mower exceeds my expectations. Great mower. It is quite, great features, and is built solid to last. Looking forward to many years of use. And one of the best warranties I found.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warranty headache Bought my zt1 3 months ago it is a great mower and cuts very nice and fast. But I developed a small oil leak about a month into ownership of the mower took it into dealer for repairs and it took almost a month to get it back. Now I'm not sure if that was a dealer issue or warranty issue. But it was discouraging to not have any feedback from cubcadet on warranty status. Had to take dealership word that it was the warranty department of cubcadet slowing up the repairs. So can't really determine if this was just the dealership or cubcadets downfall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Deck bounce I bought it a few months ago. My yard is 1 acre flat but has bumps. The deck bounces uo and down too much and gives an uneven cut. Also I don't like that grass comes up through the deck where the belt spindles are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tractor, lousy front tires Everything about the tractor is great except the front tires. Any curb or rock or bump into anything and the front tires come off their rims and go flat. Such a bad design, you can't even get them back on with the rope twist trick. So many visits to the local tire shop to get them back on the rim and blown up. Finally bought Flat Free solid tires. Cub Cadet should pay for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic purchase I bought this mower with 10 hours on it. I started using Cub Cadet products since I was a young man on the farm. What a fine machine. It looks great and cuts even better. Very comfortable to mow one and a half acres. I wish I had more to cut with this machine. I now have 35 hours on it and love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm addicted to cutting grass now!!!!! I Purchased my zero turn and the end of summer 2020 and I'm glad I did. Although it's unfortunate there isn't any equine owner rebate for this series, it's much more affordable than it's competitors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine, but good luck working on it. Owners manual useless. Had to get a trans drive belt diagram from a third party parts dealer. Great running machine though. No engine issues with the Kawasaki on the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best looking in class Been a month now and getting used to. Each time gets better. Grass don’t grow fast enough. I love the ease of use and the quality of cut. First time using a zero turn, much better and takes less time to now which gives me more time to play golf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower! This was my first zero turn mower and after a short adjustment period of learning how to use it I have determined that I LOVE IT! It definitely takes some practice but the end result is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mower ever This is the best mower ever. Leaves the yard as smooth as a baby's butt. My back isn't worn out, nice ride. Why didn't I buy it sooner?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the ZT1 50 Bought it about a month ago. My yard is about an acre. Mower is super comfortable to run. I did have to make some adjustments to the handles and drives. One wheel was trying to go faster than the other. But after that, flawless!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tippy My 2nd Cub Cadet. I loved the first one. This one has a lot of neat features but feels a bit “tippy” on even the slightest hills. The Kawasaki motor is strong but doesn’t start as well as the my old Koehler.
