Rated 5 out of 5 by from great price and performance I bought to replace an older riding lawn mower. I looked at several but decided on the Cub Cadet because of price and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and easy handling I am totally pleased with my Cub Cadet. After a couple adjustments, it does a beautiful job of mowing and the handling is super easy. We have owned CC in the past.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trouble from the beginning I bought the XT2 model in Nov 2018 as part of a pkg deal including a snowblower. Since I started using the tractor this spring I have had problems. It only has 18 hrs of use and constantly keeps stalling. I mow 1/2 acre and at the beginning of the season would stall a couple of times but I was able to finish mowing. The last couple of weeks I can not keep it running long enough to finish yard. Unable to figure out what the problem is at this point. I will have to have the implement place I purchased it from pick it up and figure out what the problem is which will probably cost me hundreds. This being the case I will never be buying any cub cadet products in the future. I can just hear cub cadet reaching for tissues to dab at their tears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I purchased over a month ago and it is all I expected and more. Not only does it perform a advertise but more. It rides comfortably, turns and maneuvers effortlessly. Best purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from actually enjoy cutting grass with this thing. Turn ratio of 16 inches feels like a zero turn without my arms getting tired with those levers. So far, cut grass three times. Enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy owner Very happy with my purchase of the XT2, it is a few grades above my previous rider. The 22 HP Kohler doesn't slow down a bit when cutting my thick grass/weeds. My mowing time has been shortened almost half as I don't have to slow down to get a nice cut. The seat is comfortable and the armrests add a nice touch. I did my first oil change at just over 5 hours and it was a breeze. The gas pedal and reverse pedal took a little to get used to but I really like it. At this point I have no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Of the Line Very satisfied with my xt2 lx42. Just used it one time and had all the neighbors over to view my new tractor. Delivery from dealer was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm pretty happy with it. Overall, I'm pleased with the power and the cut quality. I have notice some wheel spin and traction issues on uneven terrain though. My previous mower was a John Deere, and I never had a problem with it slipping. I will also say that I wish it didn't have the arm rests. They get in my way too often, and I find myself mowing with them raised most of the time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I bought this mower in late August 2018. It was a replacement for another brand of mower that kept breaking down on me. The mower did great for the finish of the 2018 season but let me down the first time out in 2019. Not even a full trip around the yard and it chewed up and slung the deck belt. The mower is currently back at the dealership awaiting repair....hopefully in the next three weeks. I bought this mower to have something new that I could depend on...at this time, that is not the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I grew up in the 80's/90's using my old man's Cub Cadet tractor so I may be a bit partial. As you can tell by the reviews and recommendations, this is a fantastic piece of machinery. I purchased my Cub in the summer of 2018 and after mowing all summer I have zero complaints. It starts every time, runs smooth, blade removal is easy, changing the oil isn't a problem, and the turning radius is second to none. Definitely would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS! After using a push mower for the last 15 years at my current property, and being continually aggravated with the mowing results, my neighbor generously offered his rider for my use. After a few uses, I knew right then and there that to reduce the time and unsatisfactory results, I needed to upgrade to a quality lawn tractor. After many hours of research, I visited a Cub Cadet Dealer and reviewed the XT1 and XT2 series. Decided to go with the XT2 LX42 as it had plenty of power and performance from the Kohler Twin Engine! I also optioned for the Cub mulching kit. After the first mowing, I knew I had made the right choice! This machine leaves a beautiful cut and has the necessary tight turning radius to easily handle the minor obstructions I have to deal with. I am currently at 8 hours of ownership, and now, for the first time in many years, actually look forward to mowing our lawn! My wife also shares the duties, and is very comfortable using the XT2. I performed the 5 hour service, and was pleasantly surprised at the ease of maintenance of changing the oil and filter; along with servicing the air filter. And should the fuel filter need service, it's right there above the oil filter offering easy access. Machine controls are well thought out: simple activation for reverse mowing, easy manipulation of forward and reverse foot controls, plenty of deck height options with ease of use, convenient blade engagement controls, all the necessary safety features, and a super comfortable seat with armrests. I also use the Smart Jet deck washing feature after each mowing. At this point of ownership, my Wife and I are completely satisfied with the features, performance, and price of this well engineered mower. Highly recommended!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cannot raise deck height to match push mower My Cub push mower's deck can be raised higher than that of my X2, making for some uneven cuts when both mowers are used. I want higher cuts in the summer months, so I end up not using the X2. Cub does not offer tires/rims that would effectively raise the X2's deck by 1". If I find something off-market, the warranty is voided. The local Cub dealer has no solution for me. The web site states the deck height is up to 4" but during a Chat session I was told the max grass height would be 3.5". I hope the X2's snow plow attachment will make it a worthwhile purchase, but at this point I'm not a happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I have had this mower about 2 months and it is performing perfectly. Quick easy starts and lots of power to pull my wagon of wood up the hill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive tractor I have had the Cub for about a month and done 3 cuts on a 3/4 acre, and very hilly lawn. The tractor is very comfortable and ergonomic compared to others I considered. I also appreciate the additional features of the XT1 vs XT2. The XT2 makes a nice cut and distributes the clippings very well....though I will be adding a mulch kit very soon. The turning radius is impressive and makes navigating around the lawn obstacles very well. I do find that with any dew or moisture on the grass, the rear wheels have a tendency to slip when climbing some of he hills. I have also reduced the tire pressure a bit to smooth out the ride. Overall, I am very pleased and would recommend it for anyone looking for a garden tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made with easy access for servicing! This is my first cub cadet and I must say that I am very impressed. I have used this lawn tractor going on its second mowing season and it is a well made machine. Maintenance is a breeze. Steering is responsive with tight turn radius. Seat with arm rests is comfortable. This mower has plenty of power with the kohler v twin engine and the quality of the cut is better than the competitors. Thanks cub cadet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from XT2 LX42 I just bought this Cub Cadet XT2 LX42 today and I love it !!! I read a lot of reviews on all the other brands and decided on this model . I'm mowing a 1/4 acre and behind my property is my brother-in-law who has 1 acre that I mow also . It's early to judge the mower now but so far no complaints except when the lawn done . LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could Not Be Happier After reading many reviews on riding mowers I settled on this. I'm I glad I did! Have 10 hours on it now with pure grin on face. It is a great machine. Steering and power is something else. Love the arm rests. Very comfortable to drive. Mowing in reverse is easy and simple to engage. I changed the oil after 5 hr. No mess at all. The oil drain is great. Turn it on and drain it into a gallon milk jug. I mow about an acre. The only complaint I have is I wish I had 5 acres. Love to get on this mower and cruise the yard! All I can say is forget green and go with the yellow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Badass Bought this puppy today and it's badass. It will turn on a dime and throw you 9 cents change. Love the hydrostatic throttle. This thing will haul the mail. I'm very impressed and would recommend it to anyone that needs a mans mower. Keep up the great work team Cub Cadet!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I just purchased the XT2 LX42 and I must say. This isn't your grandpa's cub cadet. I've been using cub cadet products since my grandpa taught me to drive a tractor when I was 5. (Forty some years). Today's tractor is impressive. No tools to remove the hood, easy access to air filter, no need to lift the hood to check fuel tank or fill it. Arm rests on the seat! Spin off oil filter, easy drain oil. This tractor rides smooth. I am IMPRESSED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got this in April to start the mowing season.. So far this is a great riding yawn tractor.. I watched them uncrate it at the dealer put gas in it, checked the oil, installed the bumper, fired it up and I ran around the area.. Received it the next day, mowed yard and haven't looked back.. Would highly recommend this unit..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review after 12 months use I was going to buy a zero turn with the steering wheel but after test riding the XT2 42"in the yard it was almost a zero turn but not... It turns very tightly for a traditional mower...My motor is a twin but I think it's a Cub Cadet not a Kohler but it never lacks power, I originally bought a LT1042 in 2008 and traded it for a used TTX1048 but it was too big for my yard, I traded it in on a new XT2 and My wife and I love it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy so far I researched lawn tractors and arrived at this one for my application. I chose the XT2 because I wanted to purchase thru my local dealer for future parts and service etc. Talking with the dealer he explained the differences between the different series. So far I have about 15hrs on it and it has performed well. It is faster and smoother than lawn tractors I've had in the past and quality of materials feels excellent. I think my favorite overall part of this tractor is the smooth positive steering and exceptionally tight turning radius. I cut around a lot of trees and the ability to turn tight is really beneficial. All deck and cutting controls are solid and don't feel flimsy. The cut in reverse override is straight forward and easy to use. I've read some complaints about having to do this at all but I really don't see the big deal its as simple as turning the key and pushing a button. Overall I'm happy with the purchase of this American made tractor and the care I received from the dealer. I may add a mulching kit to clean up leaves this fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Motor is powerful, easy on gas, smooth running. Tractor is easy to steer and operate, not tired when you are done cutting one-acre. Starts first time every time and runs flawlessly. Easy to fuel. Overall just a great tractor, I have two XT-2's, both great machines. Worst thing about these tractors is getting off to use the Weed Whip / String Trimmer.
