Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great price Purchased a month ago and the deck wobbled a bit. It was a new mower so I considered perhaps I was overreacting. With less than 8 hours on it, and the 5th time I've used it, it now has a bent blade. I now suspect the blade was not installed/tightened correctly and by running it things just got worse. The arm rests were installed too low on the seat for proper usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Mower I've been using this mower for 1.5 months now and so far, I am very pleased. The frame quality is top notch and the seat is super comfortable. The foot adjustment deck lift is convenient and the oversized tires really give you the traction you need especially on rolling hills like in my yard. I love the fact that cub cadet kept the mover sleek and simple, removing all the unnecessary plastic junk. Though I have not done any routine maintenance on it yet, everything seems to be easily within reach. My only suggestion would be is to have 4 scalp wheels instead of 2. The stock picture on the website is misleading showing four. Overall, I am very satisfied with the quality, performance and features that the ZT1 46 has to offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many good points... Purchased the ZT1 46" ( but only because the 42" was sold out ) and I am happy with the results thus far. The dealership was very knowledgeable about the unit and assured me this would fit my requirements. I had been shopping for a new mower when my 33" walk behind kept me buying various belts and I got tired of chasing them down. Looked at several other makes and models and kept coming back to Cub Cadet. They thought out the maintenance aspect very well, as far as putting in a oil drain tube, making belt access a single bolt removal and even supplying the onboard tool to do it with. The open frame concept allows for easy access to many parts of the mower without effort. So cleaning and general PM is less of a hassle and keeps the weight down as well. The 1/4" blade cutting increments are a plus as well, and the deck floats across the abnormal yard without an issue. The steering is a challenge as it is really sensitive, but is becoming easier as I use it. Starting has been a breeze as well, although the single key with the mower is a little sad. I am only on my 2nd week of cutting with it, and to date it is a worthy purchase. I am struggling with mowing on a grade I have, but this could be because of the rain we have had so far. It looks like I have been practicing my drifting skills here and there, but I have made adjustments to my cutting ranges for now. If there are any drawbacks, it is this: The accessories are tough to find, and most have been on back-order, such as the grass catcher and extra keys. But a search of the " Net " gives you a quick outlet to find things. The 42", which was more to our liking for size and storage purposes, was also on back-order until the end of May. Good or bad, it is still a concern to people who may worry this is a 1 and done year output.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent zero turn mower This is my first zero turn mower so I have nothing to compare this with, but it's been an excellent experience so far. There are a lot of pros to this mower. Design The design is great, the mower looks really sharp, steel frame seems extremely durable and practical. I like how easy it is to access basically everything on this mower without disassembling the entire thing. The seat is extremely comfortable. It has big tires. The 42" and 46" have smaller tires than the 50/54" but they're still bigger than most mowers in this class. I'm still learning the ropes with ZTR mowers and I was warned by friends that I would be tearing up the turf my first few times out. That hasn't been the case. Maybe it's because I got a a warning, but I can say the tires on this do well. It has headlights. I mowed at dusk one-time and the headlights worked great. Engine The Kohler 22hp engine runs nice and quiet and has plenty of power for my 3 hills. Two hills have pretty steep inclines and it climbs them without a hitch. I did also test on wet grass and it never bogged down or felt stressed. I can't speak to longevity yet. This mower has a large gas tank 3.5 gallons. I filled it up 1 time and I've gotten 4 full mows out of it (1.4 acres) and will need to put gas in next time, but I feel like that's pretty efficient. Deck & Cut 46" is a great size for my yard. I have about 1.4 acres I maintain. There's a combination of wide open space and tight quarters with lots of obstacles. Since you get a couple extra inches of width out of the 46" I felt it would be better for trimming close to obstacles. I'm not sure how well the 42" trims but I do great with the 46" and can go much longer without needing to weed eat than on my last mower. It's easy to change the height on the fly. I mow my nice turf at 3.75" and our unmaintained areas near a pond at 3" and it's nice to quickly switch. I want to get the mulch kit. I've always had a mulch kit on my mowers, but the grass gets diced pretty finely and doesn't leave any visible clippings so I'll hold off for now. I do have a mixture of nice turf grass, hills, uneven areas, wild grass and it does just fine across the board. It has a clean out port on the deck, but I haven't used it yet. The mower isn't a world class striping machine if lawn strips are important to you, but if you have nice turf it will stripe it. Speed & Handling It's a fast mower. At full speed there are a couple stranglers left behind but not bad enough you'd have to double cut unless you're a perfectionist. If you slow it down just to 85-90% of max speed it cuts cleanly in my testing. It handles really well. Its my first ZTR, but it only took one time out to feel like I've mastered the controls and it's truly fun to mow again. The 1.4 acres to mow and weed eat use to take me a little over 3 hours on my previous go-cart style mower and (I recently moved and had a much smaller yard previously). On the Ultima it takes me 40 min to mow and 10 minutes to weed eat. Assembly & Delivery Showed up in a big crate, drive was nice enough to bring it up the driveway for me. You'll want a pry bar or two, a nice hammer or small sledge, drill/screwdriver, and socket set and it's a piece a cake. It tore down in 5-10 minutes and me and one friend rolled it off the pallet. Assembly took 10 minutes as well. Really straight forward. I was a little nervous getting a mower all boxed up but it was not a big a deal and is actually nice getting a mower wrapped in plastic. Cons I wish this had a gas gauge. It has plastic “springs” under the seat. For the most part the ride is pretty smooth. But when I get moving out in a less maintained part of my property is very bumpy. I think real springs might perform better, but it's not so bad that I'm feel the need to do anything about it. Overall I'm super happy with this mower. I get excited when it's time to mow instead of dreading it. I was really torn between the 50" and 46". The 50" is probably a better value since it has a bigger engine, bigger tires, and fabricated deck. I chose the 46" because it takes up a little less space in storage, I have lots of trees and obstacles with a whole lot more being added soon, plus a fenced area and dog run that really don't accommodate the 50" as easily as the 46" without lifting grass shoot and whatnot every time I mow in there. Anyways, I’m very happy with the mower and I can easily recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I absolutely love my ZT1 46. Still trying to get the hang of handling it in tight quarters. Have already noticed a big difference in mowing time. Shopped lots of brands. But one of the key factors was the ease of adjusting the height. Love that knob. Very happy with my decision to buy a Cub Cadet.
