Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully satisfied This ZT2 was purchased spring 2019. So far it's been all that I expected, it has good ground speed (7.5 mph) and accurate steering. The 54" deck fits through the five foot gate at the rear of my home. The short wheelbase and responsive drive pumps make for quick steering that is something to acclimate yourself with before you ride along the edge of a steep slope, until you get used to it. It will go through a large lawn quickly because of it's maneuverability and mower deck width. The 60" would cut even faster if you have mostly wide open spaces. The handlebars are adjustable and the molded grips were comfortable to hold on to. As for maintenance - the open rear end reduces time and aggravation when doing oil and air filter maintenance. There's a drain hose with a metal plug that's easy to get to; no laying on my back or raising the machine to do an oil change. The Kawasaki FR691V 726cc V-twin engine has an easy access oil filter. The mowing deck is simple to adjust by lifting it with a foot pedal then turning a knob on the left side of the seat. Mowing height goes to 4.5". The ZT2 has larger tires front and wider track rear tires than a ZT1, also better drive pumps. Those two upgrades were worth the price difference to me but an owner with less than two relatively flat and smooth acres may be served just as well with the ZT1. Both models have LED headlamps but I can't testify to their brightness because I haven't used it to mow after dark yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from XT2/46 to a ZT2/54 on 3.6 acres I brought our 2015 XT2/46 with us when we bought our new home last year and used it for a year. It cut well but took 2.5+ hours just in mowing time. Partly due to the rougher terrain (moles) and partly due to lots of obstacles (trampoline, trees, firepit, etc). First mow with the ZT2/54 my cut time was down to 1.3 hours. Bigger tires made the ride smoother (higher mowing speed), 8" more cut width, and zero turn agility are all to thank for the drastically reduced mowing time. I really like both of these machines, it was just time to upgrade for our new home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower. Have used other zero turn mowers in the past, but never owned one and was looking to replace my well used regular steer riding mower of another brand with a zero turn. I did a lot of research.. A.. Lot. From the engines, frame build, reviews from owners, video after video down to warranty etc etc. In the end the Cub Cadets frame build, proven mechanics and warranty, coupled with zero % financing at the time of my purchase it was a no brainer. My dealer brought me a brand new demo (ZT1 "50") I figured if I liked it I could upgrade if need be. Used the ZT1 and loved it. It would be a awesome mower for me. But I for a bit more I chose the ZT2 54 for the upgraded in transmissions, extra cutting width and the Kawasaki engine, which is much quieter than the Kohler. Don't get me wrong, Kohlers are great engines in their own right, just louder when comparing the two together. The ZT2 54 seemed a tad faster and quicker response in in turning. great job at cutting while running full forward. I have about 4 acres with pecan trees and other obstacles to navigate. It made it an easy chore and so much quicker than my previous regular steer mower. 1. Quality build with heavy frame. 2. Fast, quick response to controls. 3. Easy access to all areas if a problem arises. 4. Great cut quality. 5. Love the comfortable seat. In closing.. A great mower. Period! Now the rest is up to you..
