Rated 5 out of 5 by from ZT2-54 Outstanding Performance! Outstanding price! After a dozen years with my Z-Force 50, I had to upgrade to the new Ultima Series ZT2-54. What a tremendous surprise! Great price point for the features of more expensive lawnmowers, excellent power with the Kawasaki engine & 2800 Transmission (I also loved the Kohler's on my Z-Force & LTX 1050), great cut, heavy duty, easy access for routine maintenance, nice look, and a 3 year warranty not offered by most if none others! I've never had any problems with my Cub's outside of normal maintenance and I don't expect any problems with this heavy duty Zero-Turn. After three months of cutting, I've encountered absolutely no problems. I love my ZT2-54! After talking about the ZT2 at work, 2 Co-workers ended up purchasing the ZT-2's and they love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Upgraded from an RZT 50. Noticeably improved ride, high back seat is so much easier on your back. Cleanest cut I've ever seen, 23 hp Kawasaki seems much more powerful than the old 24. Aeroforce deck big improvement over the stamped out ones. Can't imagine a better machine for the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I have about 7 hours on my ZT2 54 inch. So far all is well. This machine has cut my mowing and trimming time down from 3.5 hours to about 2.0 hours. Comfortable seat, good ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Build Awesome Mowing Machine Have owned this mower for 3 months now and would not trade it for anything. Used to own a different brand and I am so happy I switched. Mowing is a pleasure with my new mower and I actually cut the lawn more often. Makes the wife very happy. I hope it never wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No previous experience but LOTS of research We retired from a a track home in southern California to a 2.5 acre lot with 2 acres on a slight rolling hill in Northwest Idaho. Since I hadn't cut a lawn since I was a teenager I knew buying a "lifetime" mower might take some time and research. I went to a local agricultural show, met and spoke to several competitive representatives. I discovered not all mowers are alike. A new neighbor loaned me his riding lawn tractor to cut my new lawn. The job took about 4 hours (yes there was a learning curve and I'm sure a person in the know would have done it faster and better). Based on that experience I began researching zero turn mowers. A trusted friend strongly suggested Cub Cadet because he had recently retired and bought a Cub Cadet snow blower for his new property in Utah. I did completed my internet-based research and knew I wanted the following features on my new mower; 1) serviceable hydrostatic transmissions that were separated from each other (so if one failed the busted up parts couldn't contaminate the other system). 2) Kawasaki FR series engine. 3) larger pneumatic tires 4) at least a 50 inch fabricated cutting deck The Cub Cadet competition offered all of these options too but for thousands of dollars more. The reviews on most zero turns report great lawn cutting speeds and the ability to do the job well but none at the ZT2 price point. I am happy with my purchase for the following reasons, my ZT2 (54) checked off ALL of my researched options plus a 3 year unlimited hour residential warranty on the mower AND a lifetime warranty on the fabricated deck (unexpected surprise). I can cut my lawn in under 45 min and it is fun to do. The ZT2 looks great and I have neighbors wanting me to call them the next time I mow wanting to give it a try.
