Rated 5 out of 5 by from cut my yard time from 2hrs to 30min I've been wanting one for a while and finally decided to get one and its great! I have 1 acre and after getting acclimated to the controls its a dream. This zero turn has the power and deck I was looking for and it has larger tires than competitors at the same price. The only thing I have noticed and I'm going to get it looked at is the front right wheel starts to squeak about 20 min into cutting but it doesn't effect anything. over all a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I had hoped for Wife and I purchased a new Cub Cadet Ultima ZT1 50 to replace an aging Husqvarna Z4818 that served us very well (566 hrs). We have both mowed our 2 acres with the mower and feel we can provide a good early review. Pros: Sturdy construction and good design - welded tubular steel frame is as solid as it looks. No flex at all; thus no metal fatigue. The deck is welded rather than stamped steel like the Husky. Although I would have liked a heavier gauge steel, it should be more than adequate for residential use. Because the frame is so strong, there is no need for a lot of other structural sheet metal that makes cleaning difficult and inhibits cooling of transmissions. Asymmetrical front wheel alignment may be unique and allows you to cut closer to obstacles. Paint quality seems excellent. Deck height adjustment provide small increments and very easy to set. Easy of handling - turning bars feel very good. Controls are very responsive and smooth. You soon forget you are driving the mower. You just look where you want to go and it seems to go there on its own. I particularly appreciate the large rear tires. Power - 23 hp Kawasaki engine is more than adequate. We let the native grasses in a large area of our yard mature and set seed in the spring at which time the grass is very thick and 30" high. The new mower made a pass at 4.5 (max deck height) and a second pass at 3. We cut at walking speed and full deck width with no bogging and excellent clearance of the cuttings. The engine didn't change its tune at all. Engine makes about the same noise and uses the same amount of gasoline as the B&S on the old Husky. Cons: Seat durability?: Seat is comfortable, but nothing special. It has softer foam padding and a pullover vinyl upholstery that may not be as durable as a molded seat. Headlights: They are a nice feature, but one popped out of its opening when bumped by a tree limb. Glad they are there though. Final thought: We bought from a local family owned mower shop. It was great to meet them, and I know where I can buy belts, blades, and service as needed. Big Box stores don't need the money and won't service the mower. Buy from your neighbors and at the same price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower This mower is great, we were able to get done in half the time as normal and it left the grass looking amazing. It is our first zero turn and very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome features The Cub Cadet - ZT1 50 has so many amazing features. The deck has a hose attachment to enable you to clean underneath the deck. The mower is extremely easy to drive, and the steering handles are adjustable. The dial to adjust the height of the grass is easy to move. The steering capability is good for going around trees and shrubs. The mower has three blades and a 23 hp Kawasaki motor , it’s air cooled . The drain tube for the oil is unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Big Yellow Machine This is one of the best lawn mower we have ever owned, smooth ride, very comfortable seat, easy to use, love the turn zero. We have 2 1/2 acres of grass to cut and it took only an hour. I will enjoy cutting the grass now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love It I replaced my 20 year old Cub SLT 1554 and wish I could have done so years before. I was always a tractor guy. I never thought I would even be interested in a ZTR. Now there is no going back. I have cut my mowing time in half. It is comfortable. It is responsive. I tested other brands and couldn't find the features for the price that Cub Cadet offers. Well worth the money.
