Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is the 2nd cub cadet I have owned. I am hooked!!! The ride and cut that you get is outstanding. I have owned a hustler zero turn and the cub beats it in every aspect. Only thing I don't like is not having a gas gauge. Other than that AWESOME.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like turtles I won my tractor in the city street fair. What a great gift it's super simple to use . Now that evening is closing in earlier I love the headlights. Thank you so much to the Valley City Fire Department.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value in a zero turn Pros: Competitively priced Best warranty Solid build Great cut (also mulching) Great power Fast Intuitive controls Looks great Easy service Cons: Seat adjustment requires tools Rear frame makes tight spaces challenging No fine adjustment in lap bar linkage First the pros. I looked at all of the other competitor's offerings in this range, the Ultima ZT1 42" had a lower price and better warranty than the competition, and that as well as the brand recognition were my major reasons for purchasing. I don't have a lot of experience with zero turns, having upgraded from a 16 year old competitor's standard rider, so I can't really judge it against other zero turns. My first impression though, now reinforced by a few hours of use, is that this thing is built like a tank! It is very solid, with a minimal amount of cheap plastic, no flexing or rattling, and just a really quality, solid feel to it. Comparing cut quality with my previous mower, it is night and day. This thing delivers an amazing cut, especially after leveling out the deck to perfection! Even over uneven terrain, it rarely scalps, and if it does, it's my fault. I also got the mulching kit, and it chops the clippings up very fine, at least as well as my previous mower. The engine (22 HP Kohler) never seems to lack on power, even when engaging the PTO, and has plenty of torque to climb the worst hills in my yard with ease (it also sounds really great). It has plenty of speed, which really shaves the time off of cutting. The controls are well placed and intuitive, and the drive system is responsive, without being "touchy". Although I haven't had it long enough to do any service, I know it will be easy when I do, because everything is easily accessible. You can tell that some thought was put into maintaining this thing. It even has a tube for draining the oil so it doesn't run all over your pretty, yellow yard machine. Finally, I also really like the minimalist look of this thing! It's a real eye-catcher, and every one of my neighbors has had to come have a look at it, and even the pro lawn-care guys slow down and look when they are driving by. Now to the cons. I did not like that the seat adjustment requires tools. Yes, it is solid, and I probably won't be adjusting it much, but it seems like a corner that was cut on such an otherwise impressive machine. The rear frame really sticks out there! It could be just my unfamiliarity with the type, but that has taken the most for me to adjust to, and caution is definitely required backing this thing up, as the heavy duty frame can inflict some serious damage! Finally, and it's probably not something everyone would notice, but getting the left and right lap bar to exactly match positions is nearly impossible. There was admittedly some assembly issues with mine where the assembler at the big box did not line the bars up right, but even after fixing that, full forward and full reverse don't line up. The stops on the frame are just there to make sure that left and right match speed when in full forward, NOT to make them physically aligned. This drives my OCD a little nuts, especially when trying to employ the "one-handed pro" method. An adjustable section in the linkage would solve this, and also seems like it should be there to me, kind of like the adjustable seat. Overall though, even with the minor issues, I am extremely happy with this machine. I only hope I can master the operation, as cutting with a zero turn is very different (in a good way) from cutting with a traditional mower. Solid machine at a great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower I've only had the mower a short time and only used it a couple of times but I love it already. My lawn is about an acre and a half with hills and I've already cut mowing time in half.
