Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! I bought this lawn tractor a few weeks ago and have used it a couple times. So far, I am TOTALLY happy with it. Very easy to operate and very nice smooth ride. Turning radius is great and I am so glad I got the 46 inch cut- makes short work of my half acre yard. Seems to not be as loud as some other lawn tractors I have heard in my neighborhood so that is good. I will give more reviews as the Spring and Summer go on...to be continued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mower I looked at riding mowers for a couple of years as my Simplicity aged. I went from the XT1-42 to the XT2-42 and finally to the XT2-46. It is fast and does an outstanding job of cutting. I went to the XT2-46 to take advantage of the better bearings drive system and electric PTO. I first hesitated based upon a long past experience with MTD but have discovered the product to be excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features and handling Purchased about 2 months ago to replace my aging Craftsman lawn tractor. I was skeptical about only having two bags on the bagger attachment, but found that the suction power of this tractor provides for more packing power into the bags, giving them just as much capacity as my old three- bagger Craftsman. The electric power take-off to engage the blades and the visible fuel level from the driver's seat are great, too. But mostly I enjoy the tighter turning radius and steering response in general of this tractor. Will be looking into snow thrower attachment for winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent comfort, power, and transmissiom I had my previous non-Cub lawn tractor for 8 years but felt it was time to buy a new one. The seat provides good back support and is comfortable. The Kawasaki engine has plenty of power to get up steeper terrain. The HST is a gem. I am able to very speeds on the fly depending on the length and thickness of the grass. The push button PTO is convenient. No more levers to deal with and no more cables to break. I also like the side fill gas tank. It is much cleaner than trying to fill my previous mower's tank which was on top. I always ended up spilling some amount of gas when filling up that mower. Filling up this Cub is like filling up your car. The manual is clear , concise, and gives a clear and accurate maintenance schedule. Timely and consistent maintenance is the key to mower longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most excellent machine I owned a craftsman for 16 years. Bought a new craftsman and it was defective. Took it back, replaced in kind, defective again. OK, program change. I have wanted a Cub forever. Had several recommendations and with much research, chose the cub LX46 with the Kawasaki engine. Fantastic choice and worth every penny spent. I have the mower I have been wanting for 25 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far great! My second cub. I really like this XT2. It has plenty of power, the Kawasaki engine is very quiet, and I am especially impressed with the steering. The steering is very easy especially compared to my 2005 cub LT1042. I am very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real workhorse! My XT2 is just an amazing machine. It mows circles around all other mowers in my neighborhood, which include John Deere,Husqvarna, and several big money zero turns. I've put it through everything I could think of, and it comes out looking like a champ every time. I've even pulled several tons of wood with it over its 40 hours of use this year. My yard is very hilly and extremely rough in spots. The XT2 handles it with ease. It will even pull up my back yard hill, which is about a 35° incline. The only regret I have is that I didn't buy an XT3!! You've got a Cub customer for life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lawn tractor. Quick & easy turning. A big PLUS. Good power. The speeds forward & reverse are good. Much better than my previous Cub. Could be a bit quieter but not too bad. My unit is still cutting a bit uneven. I have been adjusting the deck but not satisfied yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine I can't say enough about my new XT2 Enduro tractor. I spent 2 days researching many of the new tractors on the market. I was most impressed with all the features, the available accessories and the styling of the XT2. Plus the price wasn't bad either. The local Cub Cadet dealer (Calhoun Equipment Co) was very helpful and knowledgeable with my purchase. It now takes 1/2 the time to mow my lawn. It rides like a cadillac and manuveres like a porche. The Kawasaki engine in this thing is quiet yet very powerful. I was able to pull a 6'x8' ground plainer without any problem what so ever. I do recommend also the bagger kit and the front bumper kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! Recently, I purchased the XT2 LX46" with a 21.5hp Kawasaki and stamped deck from one of our local dealers. Bottom line: It is a superb lawn tractor from front to rear. I have just under an acre of minor hills, gentle slopes, some vegetation and other various landscaping items in the yard that I have to carefully work around, and the tractor's power, turn radius and cut is outstanding. The Kawasaki is powerfully smooth in thick grass, turns and handles as if it had power steering - - I am genuinely pleased! It has reduced my mowing time from 1 hour, to just 40 minutes. Additionally, my previous tractor (12 y/o Craftsman 42" 16hp Kohler) would use almost two gallons for the job, but my new Cub barely uses one gallon and gets the job done much, much quicker. It still works, but the transmission's days are numbered. The only disappointment I have with the new Cub is that I am no longer able to shift my weight to one side of the tractor while mowing one of the steeper, "trickier" slopes on my property. The contact switch is more sensitive. But, that safety feature is something I can live with; (the wife mows it with the push-mower now), lol. Considering our lawn requirements, I did my homework and researched most of the lawn tractor companies (Cub Cadet, Husqvarna, JD, Craftsman, etc.) among the big box stores and local dealers - doing some comparison shopping of available options, quality, value and dealer reputation. For me, I wanted a well-made, durable product with an excellent warranty, dealer and company support. Other posts have rightly identified the importance of having a good dealer that supports you after the sale - and I agree. The critical factors that I considered were 1) motor; 2) transmission; 3) deck/cut; 4) steering/ride/handling, and last but not least was the dealer/company. I watched and read many online reviews, visited the box stores and dealers, and did test-drives. I got under them, examined the differences and considered what I was willing to pay, for what I believed was a suitable, acceptable and quality lawn tractor for my unique lawn-care needs. I am confident that our new Cub Cadet was a great choice, and we fully expect it to last as long - - if not longer, than our former tractor. I actually enjoy anticipating the grass growing now...in order for me to go ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from XT2 LX46" Lawn Tractor This is my first riding lawn mower. I really like it! I did some research and chose Cub Cadet over John Deere. I also chose this model over other Cub Cadets for the Kawasaki engine. Plenty of power for hauling tools like aerator and such. I cant complain about anything on this mower. The cut on this thing is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I knew Cub Cadet was the best choice from previous experience with a family members tractor but the new Enduro series is even better than I expected. I have used my new XT2 46" 24 HP Koehler mower six times so far and it mows like a dream. Cuts threw thick wet grass without any hesitation and spreads the clippings very well. I plan to get the plow blade, bagger and extreme blades very soon. Worth every penny and then some and just try to find a green or orange mower with the same features for anywhere near the price, I bet you can't. I sure couldn't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty nice mower - with a few hiccups Purchased my 2018 XT2 LX46 in May of 2018. After 1 year and about 13 hours on the clock (we had a lot of rain), here are my thoughts: - This thing cuts tall grass like a beast. It does not play around. I traded in an old LT1040, and I had to tie up the grass chute to keep it from clogging up. Not so with this monster !! It keeps the deck clear in the most harsh situations, including crawdad mounds and fire ant piles. Don't even think about trying to tie up the chute on this bad boy, you will sling rocks and debris everywhere. Leave it in place! - After a few hours of mowing, I got a "E-04" code on the display. The dealer came out, took it back to their shop, and brought it back quickly after replacing the oxygen sensor and replacing the plugs, all for free. No more codes since then. - This mower needs more aggressive tires on the back. Yes, I realize that some people have lovely manicured lawns, but I am mowing about 3/4 of an acre of improved pasture, and I need some more traction, especially when the ground is wet. - The most annoying thing about this mower is the lack of handles on the rear fenders !! I REALLY miss being able to secure myself when mowing our ditch (which is NOT very steep) !! I see that other models have them, but I just didn't need the larger deck size. Overall, a great mower that I would buy again, although I really would appreciate the return of the fender handles on this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, rough ride This X2 tractor performs well, starts easily, and seems to mow well. It seems to ride rougher than my previous CubCadet. One of the reasons I purchased another CubCadet is that I already had the bagger. That is a big cost savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well thought out features We are very happy with our new LX46 lawn tractor and bagger attachment. It beats our previous (green & yellow machines) hands down. It has plenty of power, we can practically steer it with one finger, and the tight turning radius made getting a zero-turn mower unnecessary for our needs. A lot of thought went into the design of this mower. All pros and no cons here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Cub Cadet Great tractor. I purchased it on July 15, 2015, have used it probably 5 times to cut a little more than 1 acre with no problems. I owned a LT1050 for 9 years until I upgraded to this XT2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyin' my Cub Cadet! This is an excellent product. It runs smoothly and gets the job done well and efficiently. After speaking to the folks at the Cub Cadet store I'm very glad to have purchase through a retailer and not through one of the big box stores; quality is much higher with the retailer and no real difference in price. I would definitely recommend this product. (With the Cub Cadet I also purchased a two-wheeled hauler and it works well, although the latches could be stronger.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This rider is a quality Rider I had a 42 in zero turn and went back to the regular lawn tractor. This machine is a awesome machine , I'm very happy with the way it handles and cuts. I have a bad back and the ride is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My instincts were on the money when I decided to buy the Cub Cadet. I shopped out several different makes of tractors in the same category and the Cub won hands down every time. Pure & simple. I could go on and on, but that's pointless. I expect this work horse will out-last me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Best tractor I've had to date! Grantid I've had slightly older machines of other brands but this is by far the best. Strong, quiet, fast starting engine. Quick and tight turning and great traction. Every time I get on it I like it more and more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cuts like a beast but steering needs work. The machine has a ton of power for the size deck. Cuts wet and overgrown grass like nothing. So far I only have two hours on it though and the steering shaft feels loose. Not the steering itself, but the column has a ton of play in it, feels cheaply made. I am hoping this is just how they all are and that its not an issue with my machine. I will write a follow up review at the end of the season. On another note, this machines quality is far better than any of the competitors at that price point. The red and green competitors feel cheaply made and when I stepped on them they would flex all over the place. The Cub is much more ridged and better built. The LED headlights also set it apart, you can actually see at night...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bought last years model Bought a 2014 LTX 46 KW. it has a Kawasaki engine that is quiet and well made. I was able to add the sunshade attachment, armrests attachment. Has a Tubular front bumper, strong foot pedals and pivot points. has the same seat and hood as the new 3 series. Glad I bought the 2014.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I would rate my new Cub Cadet XT2 46" mower one of the best purchases I've made. It runs great - mows even - handles great, especially on turns - comfortable ride. Waterman Farm Machinery Co. in Sabattus Maine were great to do business with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor The performance of this tractor is amazing. It is quiet and powerful. I could not believe how tight a turning radius this tractor has. I can now cut around obstacles in my yard and cutting down on trimming. It is well built and I am looking forward to decades of use.
