Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consumer friendly Great handling, the Kohler twin cylinder engine is smooth running and provides plenty of power. Purchased the mulch kit. Converted the deck to mulch. Does a great job. Purchased the rear bagger as well. Looking forward to using the rear bagger this fall. very pleased with the Cub Cadet tractor and accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality of tractor overall Used it for about 5 hrs so far. Seems more solid than older model. I like the steering and the ability to turn in such a small circumference. Ride is a little firm. Plenty of power with the kohler series 7000 22 hp engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Little Mower I bought this mower about three years ago. I have been very happy with the mower itself. I had a few issues getting the right part sent out to me when I snapped off a grease zerk, but that was a miscommunication between myself and the service representative. This mower can handle tall grass well or provide you with a manicured look; either way, it does a great job. It throws grass very well and typically doesn't let it "ball up", even when it is a little wet. The engine starts every time, regardless of the temperature, and it is a comfortable mower to ride. I would definitely buy another of these for a small to medium-sized yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I considered several mowers but settled on the Cub Cadet. One feature that drew my attention over all the others is the 'mow in reverse' button. On Cub Cadet you push the button one time and the 'mow in reverse feature' is engaged till you shut the mower off. I've used the mower for a couple months am greatly satisfied in the comfort and user friendly controls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid tractor! Powerful This tractor has an incredible turning radius and powerful motor. Even the thickest grass and debris do not slow it down. The only negative is that the bagger needs work. Half of the time it becomes latched while mowing and blows grass everywhere. Overall an awesome tracror

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size Love my XT2 Cub Cadet. It’s a size I can handle. Does a great job on the lawn with the 42” cutting deck. Tight turning radius is a major plus. Easy to start. Relatively quiet motor. Glad I chose the Cub Cadet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rider I've Ever Owned I bought this when my previous riding mower suddenly blew it's engine. Luckily the store I bought it from had one left and had some additional savings even beyond the $100 off that Cub Cadet had. I chose the XT2 over the XT1 because of those savings and I'm really glad I did. Even without the extra savings, I think I still would have went with the 2. The extra horsepower and features are worth it. I also installed a mulching kit which does a fantastic job with the clippings. Even with putting new mulching blades on my previous mower just before it died, the Cub Cadet cuts so much better. The Kohler motor is amazing and pretty quiet for a riding mower. I can't say enough good things about this mower. It was hundreds of dollars less than comparable orange or green mowers with the same cut and horsepower. You will not be disappointed if you buy a Cub Cadet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tractor! I purchased the Cub Cadet XT2 42" tractor to replace an older Craftsman machine that was falling apart and not cutting well anymore. I researched for over a year and waited until I could make it happen. This was definitely the tractor that I felt was best for both my needs and for the value. Overall, I am very happy with this machine. The tractor starts up very easily, and it runs very smoothly. I love the hydrostatic transmission, which is much easier than dealing with having to put the tractor into gear. The tractor drives very well, and it turns on a dime compared to my old tractor. The only minor issues I have is that the mulch kit does not mulch very well. To be fair, I am used to the mulching of my Honda lawn mower that has dual blades to turn the grass into tiny particles. However, the mulch kit on the Cub Cadet does not cut the grass into small pieces, and frankly, I'm not impressed with what it leaves sitting on top of my grass. Especially when the grass is longer or thicker (during rainy season)....it just doesn't do quite as well. But I'm picky, so again, this is a great machine. The other issue I have is the deck height. It says the highest setting is 4 which I would believe to be 4 inches. However, it is more like 3 1/2". I had to set my Honda mower to 3/12" to match the deck height of 4 on the Cub Cadet (the Honda is now the trim mower). In addition, the deck makes a lot of noise when there are bumps in the yard. It just sounds like it bounces a lot as I can hear the metal on the deck clanging. I'd imagine it's a floating deck, and maybe my other deck did not do that, so it may just be that I'm not used to what that should sound like. I am very happy with this purchase. Nothing in this world is perfect (unless you pay big bucks for it), so this tractor is exactly right for us. I get my lawn done in a fraction of the time, and it leaves a nice cut to the grass. The motor runs like a top, and I am very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable tractor with excellent features! This is my second full season using my Cub Cadet Tractor and I couldn't be more pleased. It is easy to maintain and does a great job mowing my lawn. I was surprised at the turning radius which is great getting around objects! I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to buy a new lawn tractor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Engineering Updates Purchased and used Cub Cadet’s XT2LX42 in the spring of ‘18. Absolutely the best lawn tractor/mower I’ve ever owned! All the new engineering updates makes it kinda fun mowing the lawn again. Favorite feature is the new steering radius. It shortens mowing time considerably. Can only give the Cub Cadet the highest recommendation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riding mower I have had my Cub Cadet for a little over a year I absolutely love it I call it my baby lawn mower. Very good care of it I wash it clean and everything after every lawn cutting. It is the best lawn mower I have ever owned and Cub Cadet there's an excellent company to buy a mower or anything that you need from they stand behind their equipment and behind their customers I would never buy anything other than Cub Cadet again and I would recommend them to everyone
