Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem after problem Bought June of last year been in the shop more than the yard. At 26 hours the engine locked up, not even to the hours for the first oil change. I will say that it was warranted and a new engine installed. It took a month of me paying someone to mow my grass. I get it home and it starts blowing fuses. I replace several fuses and check wiring and get it going. About 5 minutes into the first cut with new motor it burns up the pto switch. I get online and order another pto switch. The switch arrived put it in, crank mower and engage blades about 1 minute in it burns up another pto switch. Now it's back in the shop and they are telling me that it is probably a bad clutch and the drag is burning out the pto switch. Again I will say that it is under warranty. But yet again I'm having to pay someone to mow my grass and I own a $4000 mower. Not a happy customer at this point, I should have just saved the money I spent on this mower and paid someone to cut the grass evidently. If I were looking for a mower I would definitely look at other options before dealing with these problems. It did cut the grass good when it runs...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Depressing Expense. It will be the most expensive waste of money. 1st zt2 60in.i had hydro stopped working at 5hrs but a nice clean cut before thar. replacement now 2 weeks old with 2 hrs on it the deck paint flaking off, and the frame section has un even sprayed thin areas and thick ares. with chips in bubbled paint/ weld spatter all over, and all chip and banged up from shipping. along with the control sticker bubbled and the hrs gauge looks like its doesnt fit and flops around you can see the gauge face showing through the black cover sticker with bubbles all over. deck stckers peeling off already.. with 1 mow 1/4 ac lot.mow looks aweful straglers, 2 strips, deck seems unlevel. my grand fathers 20 yr old cub 2000 series garden tractor that was passed down to me was better than this thing. finally gave up so i thought ill stck with cub cadet as im i find something i like i support them. this experiance has me depressed and unure i want to continue with cub cadet. i disabled vet, limited income and work hard for the money i work for and saved for this mower. makes me sick Thousands and this is what I'm more than likely stuck with. some people thats nothing for but to me thats a lot of money i saved to buy this thing and feel unhappy and depressed with what money i basically threw in the trash.☹️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The machine with no fear! Man didn't Cub Cadet out do it with this series! This year’s Ultima series is the best around. I have the ZT2 60 and man she's a mean machine. This machine fears nothing and the strength and power it has is amazing. No matter if you have one or 5 acres if its flat land or rolling hills there’s no terrain will stop it (of course you can’t go straight down a steep slope.) The frame work is amazing built steel tough and who doesn’t like to ride comfortable. Best comfortable in the market it has an 18-inch seat that doesn’t hurt the back! The deck is built to last if the zero turn I don't have the bagger but will probably be adding it. As of now it leaves so clump grass behind, but the bagger would come in handy for winter leaf’s! Now comes the horse power and boy does she pack a punch or two! the powerful 24 Kawasaki engine provides enough power for this machine and you can never go wrong with a Kawasaki engine! This beauty is back by a 3-year unlimited hour warranty not many does that! Along with limited on the frame and fabricated deck but I’m sure this Cub you won’t ever use the warranty! She’s a beauty I now just need the bagger for my 60-inch deck, and she will be a complete piece of art!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth ride I absolutely love this mower! It’s handles great and turns so easily. It took more than a few minutes to figure out how everything worked but I got it. It’s a little confusing at first, because you have to remember how to make the blade go up and down as well as learning the handles. Once I took a couple runs in the yard I learned how to work it. Practice makes perfect. I would recommend this mower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine is amazing This machine is amazing. It gives you a very wide cutting space. Easy to turn and maneuver. Driving arms are spaced out so you can easily sit in the comfortable padded seat. Easy to start. The changeover from driving to cutting is a bit stuttered but manageable. Bright yellow paint is easily visable . 3 speeds to do your cutting . This is a well made well built durable zero turn machine for large area and branch’s lands. This is a must have for any one who has a decent amount of land to cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cuts fast, smoothly and comfortably. Pros: Good match between speed of mower and cutting ability Comfy Nice cut with hi-lift blades Easy access to everything requiring maintenance Nice appearance Easy to setup/adjust (comes with tool) Cons: Hitch plate keeps vibrating loose Belt tensioner spring on top of deck vibrates loudly against deck Summary: I will put loctite on hitch plate bolts I will wrap spring with rubber hose to prevent metal on metal contact I will recommend mower to others; more so, if Cons are addressed Also have 3 year old XT-1. Trouble free and great cut. Definitely give Cub Cadet a look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier to operate than I thought it would be I received this mower about a month ago to replace our old one that we had for several years that has seen better days. My husband is an over the road trucker and I take care of our home and yard. I was very nervous about getting this zero turn mower compared to our old one, which you just sit down on and operate with a steering wheel. I was so scared, it took me about 2 days of just driving it around the yard to ensure I was comfortable enough with it before trying to cut anything. I am very impressed with the design and convenience this mower offers and how self explanatory it is to operate, (directions by the key switch). I also love the fact that it has 3 blades instead of 2 to ensure even mowing and also this mower has a place to hook up your water hose to its pressure washing system that washes underneath the deck after you are finished mowing. How awesome is that!? It has a smooth ride and guys this mower even has a cup holder! You can easily get to the motor to check oil and do maintenance as needed. They thought of everything, you can even purchase attachements that hook up on the back of it for like mulching or bagging. I am in love with this mower and wish we would have gotten it sooner. I recommend this to anyone in the search for a new mower, you will not be disappointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cut ever Wow is an understatement with this mower. I thought a 60 was to big of a deck for my yard with a walnut grove but I was wrong it is like a balarina hippo but and nimble. To say I am happy with my purchase is an understatement. My whole neighborhood has mower envy. There is 1 down side if you enjoy spending time on your mower you will be upset on how fast it cuts. I just ride on it enjoy it more after cutting. Super comfy seat and amazing handles that are fully adjustable. Must have mower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Cub Cadet ZT2 60 My husband and I absolutely LOVE our new Cub Cadet ZT2 60 riding lawn mower. This lawn mower is unlike any other standard riding lawn mower. The Cub Cadet has a Kawasaki 4-stroke Air-Cooled V-Twin Gasoline engine which takes regular unleaded gasoline, with a 3.5 gallon fuel tank that lays directly under the seat. It has an adjustable padded seat that is very comfortable and controls extra bouncing and also is a safety that automatically shuts the mower off if you lift off the seat. Unlike your standard rider mower most have a clutch and 3/4 different gears that you have to adjust to control the speed of the lawn mower and different gears to adjust the blades and level of your cut. The zero turn is all controled it the zero turn arms on the mower including reversing the mower to make it easier for cutting. It has an adjustable knob on the side that you can set to the level you want your grass cut. And the front wheels are casters to make it easier to maneuver. It also has a dummy bar on the back that protects you from rolling or tripping the lawn mower over and a slip mat for your feet so your feet won't slide while mowing. Once you use a Cub Cadet one time you will never want another lawn mower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy this if you want to mow everything twice. I wish I had bought anything else besides this mower. The first use I discovered that the mounting plates that attach the deck to the frame were loose and had dropped one side of the deck about 3 inches lower than the other. I reattached the bolts, leveled the deck and tried again. I had to mow twice to get a decent cut. The mower was leaving a tall stripe of grass between the outer blades and the inner blade on both sides. New blades installed and I get the same bad cut. I couldn't even get the local dealer to admit that I have a warranty on a mower that was less than 3 weeks old.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems I bought the zt2 60 a month ago and now I wish I would have bought a different mower for 2 reasons. 1. The mower does not have an easy fuel indicator so that I know when I am about to run out of gas. I have to stop get off the mower and lift the seat to see the fuel tank. This really isnt that big of a problem but a fuel gauge of some kind would have been nice. 2. The first time I used this mower it cut great and was easy to use. I stored it in the shed until the yard needed another cut (about 4 days). When I went to get my new mower out of the shed I noticed a horrible smell in the shed that I could not find the source of. Once I started mowing I noticed that the mower was leaving a line of uncut grass right down the middle of the mower. After further inspection I realized that I had an enormous amount of grass clipping stuck under the deck of the mower even though I used the wash port after the previous mowing. The wet grass had Mildewed and that is what was stinking in my shed. Once I removed the stuck grass with a scraper, being careful not to scratch the inside of the deck, the mower cut great. I spend about 20 minutes after each mowing with my mower on a set of car ramps to access the undercarriage of the deck so that I can spray the huge clumps of grass out with a water hose so that it doesnt stink in my shed and will cut the next time I need to mow. I put fertilizer down this year and i am mowing every 3 to 4 days making sure that the grass doesnt get too tall. Which would be great for someone who loved having a new toy to play with everytime the yard needed mowing but not for me. I have sharpened the new blades, I have sprayed dry graphite under deck to help keep the grass from building up all with no luck. If it were not for this issue I would recommend this mower to anyone but due to this major pain everytime I mower I would not recommend this mower!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failing - not worth the money Let’s see if Cub Cadet allows this review to be posted. We have now had the ZT2 60 for one month now so we’ve had an opportunity to use it 4-5 times now. In short, if you like wearing most of the grass you cut....this is the mower for you. I’m not sure if it’s the chute angle or the deck itself but either way in even a light wind the grass ejected from the deck ends up covering the rider. So much so that Cub Cadet might as well omit the cup holder because it is useless when grass ends up covering whatever during you have in it. I thought at first that the lack of fenders could be part of the problem so I purchased the fenders but they didn't do much to fix the issue. The fender kit is as poorly designed as the deck and chute. It barely covers the tires and leaves an opening below the frame that still allows a lot of grass to enter the engine area and the back of the seat. It is an absolute waste of money. While we’re talking about the engine area, let me mention the frame...mine is already rusting. A cross member between the upper frame and the lower frame (on each side) is missing a weld. Since this missing weld is on a downslope of the frame, it has already gathered water and is streaking with rust. It is guaranteed to collect more water and debris inside the frame. There is a small weep hole in the lowest part of the frame but it will plug and create more problems. Back to the deck - I have looked at and made as many adjustments to the anti-scalp wheels but I cannot keep the mower from tilting when turning left and leaving uneven lines in the grass. The problem doesn’t seem to be speed related (I’ve tried everything) so it leaves me to a poor deck mounting system. Lastly, I didn’t think the mower striped the yard very well so I decided to put the striping kit (another extra charge) - guess what?? No noticeable difference. So now I have a lot of money tied up into a poorly design and already rusting brand new mower that only looks good but fails on basic functions. Nice job Cub Cadet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Thorough The Z2 is a beast! I just bought a house in the country with about 2 acres of lawn. I thought my weekends would be consumed with lawn care until I found the Cub Cadet. I finish the entire project in less than two hours, and it does a beautiful job. This machine saved my weekends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ZT2 60 The ZT2 60 so far has proven to be a pretty good mower. Its heavier than my previous zero turn. I enjoy the comfort because some of my cutting is rough terrain not smooth. With the kawasaki engine on there it doesn't bog down easily. I like the cut of it. One thing that is missing is a fuel gage. I know its on the 3 but you have enough space in the control panel for one. But overall its a decent mower. I haven't cut with it an entire season yet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Things garbage I bought this piece of crap a month ago and it works insanely well if you like mowing a lot. You will mow your lawn about 6 times before your even close to being done. Enjoy mowing for 3 hours every day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Garbage I bought my ultima zt2 60 a year ago, it leaks oil, the tires don’t get traction on flat ground and the aero force deck could be better. I would advise anyone looking at this ztr to consider other brands. I wish I did

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish I could trade it in I bought it a year ago. It is already in the shop. The shop says after a month they are still waiting for cub cadet to send them the parts. It is a nice tractor but I wish I had gotten something bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hugh time saver and great cut. I bought this rider to replace an old Craftsman riding mower, I even upgraded from the ZT1 that I was going to buy originally. I like that the ZT2 had features that the ZT1 didn't have and boy am I super happy with my purchase! This mower saves me so much time while mowing my lawn, it is so much quicker than the previous rider. Nice smooth riding, cuts grass very well and is fun to rip around the yard with. I save at least 15 minutes or more compared to my previous mower. I would highly recommend this mower to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower! I bought the ZT2 60" deck two seasons ago. We had just purchased a small acreage, which then expanded. I am mowing over 5 acres a week with this mower. Runs great, I have hit a number of saplings and it just keeps on going. Although not recommended for ditches I still use the ZT2 for my ditches and it has never ever had an issue. I have a second house I take care of as well and just load the mower on a trailer and cut that 1/2 acre like it is nothing. If there was anything that I would like is to have a seat with more suspension, but there are after market seats I could get if I really wanted. As for the mower hands down a great purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extra on board storage for grass! Overall I do like the mower but the deck has major flaws all around it. The thing holds grass like no other even after using the cleaning port it is just caked with grass. My mower on its third use was consistently leaving large streaks of grass behind and being an aerospace engineer who works in a wind tunnel I thought it was due to ground affects from having the deck higher. When I went to check the conditions of the blades, I found the mowers dirty little secret. The thing is a hoarder! Really disappointed in this design overall and I know the grass buildup will shorten the decks life. I guess in a couple of years I'll either design my own deck or just sell the mower. I would not recommend this mower. I think the design team lazily took a smaller deck model that worked and scaled it up without proper testing and the results weren't good. Photo shows grass left under the deck even after using the wash port. Oil quart shown for scale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome mower! When I started looking for a zero turn mower I had no idea what I was getting myself into as far as the different brands out there and going through all the different information on each. After all my research I chose the ZT2 60 by Cub Cadet and I couldn’t be happier. I was using a 48 inch rider before and this unit cut my mowing time in half!! It looks great and is a blast to mow! I chose the ZT2 60 for the features of the deck and the serviceable transmission. And yes it also looks great and is very comfortable! The quality of cut is great and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from mowing with a hollowed shell pretty bad that all other brands regular mowers have a thicker deck than these. Sounds hollow and loud compared to other mowing decks. Have been unsatisfied since I bought the mowing a year ago and cub cadet doesn't care about the customer. Simply put get another brand mower!
