Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love It I replaced my 20 year old Cub SLT 1554 and wish I could have done so years before. I was always a tractor guy. I never thought I would even be interested in a ZTR. Now there is no going back. I have cut my mowing time in half. It is comfortable. It is responsive. I tested other brands and couldn't find the features for the price that Cub Cadet offers. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I really got sick and tired of paying lawn guys to either NOT SHOW or scalp and destroy my lawn..So if you want it done right , DO IT YOURSELF!! and what better way than to do it with a really nice zero turn CUB CADET ZT1 50..took me 28 minutes to zoom around yard (over an acre) and this included my "learning curve" use of the Zero Turn. AWESOME MOWER...Bye Bye lawn guys , hello relaxing cruise around yard with a "cold one" in the cup holder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no more for a great mower This Cub Cadet mower is a beast. I absolutely love it and all of its features. Honestly, I haven't found one negative thing to say about it since I've been using it. This lower goes about 7mph forward and 3.5 in reverse. 7mph doesnt sound fast but when you're mowing, it's pretty quick. Instead of it taking me close to 3 hours to mow my land, its cut down to an hour or hour and a half. It cuts from 1in to 4.5in, and it's an level even cut. Not a high patch here and a low patch there, it's even! This thing even has a deck wash, high pressure water that cleans out grass and debris build-up under the deck. It's pretty awesome and very convenient. The seat is adjustable for short to taller people, it adjust under the seat and is comfortable. You want comfort when you're out in the sun and sitting for a while. Has headlights to be able to see and maneuver at night, which is a good add on since it gets hot here in NC and I prefer to mow once the sun goes down. Lastly I want to add the park break/emergency break. No reaching down or using your foot to press a break. Just close your lap bars and it stops in your tracks. Some people dont like that but I do. Handling is really good and controls work flawlessly. Not hard to maneuver at all. Needless to say, I love this 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 Awesome features The Cub Cadet - ZT1 50 has so many amazing features. The deck has a hose attachment to enable you to clean underneath the deck. The mower is extremely easy to drive, and the steering handles are adjustable. The dial to adjust the height of the grass is easy to move. The steering capability is good for going around trees and shrubs. The mower has three blades and a 23 hp Kawasaki motor , it’s air cooled . The drain tube for the oil is unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Big Yellow Machine This is one of the best lawn mower we have ever owned, smooth ride, very comfortable seat, easy to use, love the turn zero. We have 2 1/2 acres of grass to cut and it took only an hour. I will enjoy cutting the grass now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love my Z1 50 inch I bought this about month ago. Never rode a zero turn. If I new how wonderful they rode and how easy they were to drive I would have bought one 20 years ago. If you can drive a wheelchair, you can drive a zero turn, it’s the same concept. I drove it twice and my neighbor couldn’t believe I was going to cut my yard. He told me after the first time I was a pro. I have a hill in my back that his Ariel’s could not cut. The larger back wheels really give you good traction. I love riding it . I feel like a kid with a toy. I recommend anyone buying one that pays a lawn service. Take that money and pay for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mower I purchased this mower because my 7 year old John Deere gave out. I like the idea of the three year warranty. I was able to go right over to Home Depot and look at all of the models sitting side by side. I went to get the 42", but I really like the deck on the 50". It seems to be much more heavy duty, and since I have hills the Kawasaki Parallel Twin is exceptional.
