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 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 4 out of 5 by from High-End Consumer Zero Turn - POWERFUL! I'm cutting grass in half the time I used to. Why did I wait so long? Cheap Skate I guess. I cut 2 to 3 acres every 7 days in cutting season and another 9 acres twice a year. Pros: Powerful 24HP Kawasaki blows away my Kohler 25HP. No comparison. Worth the extra money. ZT-2800 hydro gears- this is important people. These are serviceable. Go any lower grade and a gear goes, you have to buy a whole new one. One reason I purchased this mower. 2nd most important next to the Kawasaki engine to me. I searched hard before buying this. The most bang for the buck out there. You can't beat it. Coming out with a future zero turn that maybe you can call the ULTIMA ZT3 with a suspension package for those who have a little more than 3 acres to cut? I'm waitingand I'm wanting. Not that I don't love this one but it would give me a reason to get rid of my old back up lawn tractors and use the ZT2 20+ times a year for the 1 to 3 acres every week during cutting season and the ZT3 (just dreaming here guys; can I dream?) for the twice a year I need to cut the other 9 acres.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower for the price I bought this mower just yesterday, used an equipment dealer with hopes that any warranty issues will receive quicker service. Mower was delivered ready to go. First cut was set at 2.5 with my level front lawn area (about 1/2 acre). Was quick to cut. Did notice the mower does not quite track straight but will research that adjustment later. IF I had never had a commercial zero turn I would be beyond happy. However, I had an older larger commercial mower with suspension seat, flex forks, etc. so to compare this machine is definitely slower and rides more like a economy car compared to a luxury car. However, for the price, options, and easy to maintain design this mower is hard to beat, the commercial mower I have costs 3 times as much. I bought this for my wife and kids to use and I think it will be perfect. No issues cutting grass reasonably fast. Like others I wish it had a gas gauge as well as a suspension seat option. However, as of now I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Mower I purchased the ZT2 60 inch zero turn at the beginning of the summer from Home Depot. After learning how to drive a zero turn I cut my mowing time from 4 hours to 2.5 hours. Mower cuts great and fun to drive. Worth every penny and will recommend to other people. Happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ZT2 Greatest Machine Ever We bought the ZT2 60" about 2 months ago to add to our LTX 1045. What a great Mower, or as it says a Lawn sculpting machine. I was shocked at what a smooth ride it gave, and it didn't matter what direction I cut the grass in, IT LOOKED GREAT!. I've tried out others, but this one beats them all. Cut my mowing time in half and the lawn looks like a carpet. Highly recommend the ZT2 to anyone looking for a fantastic mower and at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mower I mow several acres and have found this to be extremely comfortable over my terrain and leaves my lawn looking like a golf course. I tried out several zero turn mowers and I believe this is the best on the market for the price range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the simplistic design of this mower. I recommend that some sure method of checking the available fuel be designed for the mower. IT is hard to see the fuel level in sunlight. Also the mower could use some simple fenders to prevent clippings blow-back on the operator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine I have had my machine for over 13 years and have had only one part failure. One of the blade bearings had to be replaced. I did not select 5 stars because I think there is always room for improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely thrilled with my Cub ZT2 60"!!! I bout this mower when we moved to a new place with a bigger yard. This thing is a grass eating hog! Plenty of power, easy to use. The one push back is that the top speed is a little slow, but that's not really a deal breaker. Love the mower and love mowing with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Limo of a machine! I've had my Cub Cadet since April of 2019. Immediated satifisfaction, from the work horse quality to the ease and comfort of operation. I ue my Cub on a large acreage and it performs eqully well on the slopes, hills and straightaways that make up our property. I look forward to mowing every week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine for my five acres I have a 30 HP Cub Cadet tractor 7300 series with a 60 inch finish mower I had been using to mow my 5 acres. It seemed that much time was being waisted turning the unit around. I decided to purchase the ZT2-60 inch mower and have reduced my mowing time greatly. This is an excellent manufactured residential mower, comfortable, easy to operate. It only took about 20 minutes for my wife to feel comfortable on this mower. I would certainly recommend this mower to anyone replacing a mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower I’ve had mine about 4 years now and I got it from someone else who had it before me. I love it and I can get my huge yard mowed within 45 mins to an hour with my 60” deck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design I like the easy way everything works on this mower. Unlike previous ZT's, this one is simple and doesn't require multiple actions to do the same thing. However, I do think it could use a bit more horsepower, as it seems to bog down sometimes when I don't think it should.
Date published: 2019-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I've put about 25 hours on the mower now, and everything has been great. I used it to mow 4-5 acres of wooded lawn. No issues with the mower still runs as new and cuts beautifully. I plan to purchase the mulch kit in the coming months to use for mulching autumn leaves.

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.
