Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy owner Very happy with my purchase of the XT2, it is a few grades above my previous rider. The 22 HP Kohler doesn't slow down a bit when cutting my thick grass/weeds. My mowing time has been shortened almost half as I don't have to slow down to get a nice cut. The seat is comfortable and the armrests add a nice touch. I did my first oil change at just over 5 hours and it was a breeze. The gas pedal and reverse pedal took a little to get used to but I really like it. At this point I have no complaints.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as I hoped I had high hopes for this XT2 LX42 to replace my 17 year old Simplicity Regent. But I am a little disappointed. I really need both a mulcher and a bagger. First thing is I hate that there is not a single set of bladed to handle both. The deck was much more difficult to get off, especially the clips. Once I had the mulcher kit installed, I was disappointed about the lines of clippings this deck leaves. I have waited as little as 5 days between mowing, and still got the lines of dead clippings that I had to go over a second time. I should have believed the reviews about people that only got a good result that had a flat yard. My yard is far from perfectly flat. I get lots of scalping. I am now back to mowing the worst parts of my yard with my GREAT Honda walk behind that does in fact have a single set of bladed that handle everything. I then mow the other 50% of my yard with XT2. I bought a set of 2-1 extreme blades I am going to try, but of course it does not say they are good for mulching. Why can't Cub Cadet deck mow as good as my Honda walk behind?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Of the Line Very satisfied with my xt2 lx42. Just used it one time and had all the neighbors over to view my new tractor. Delivery from dealer was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm pretty happy with it. Overall, I'm pleased with the power and the cut quality. I have notice some wheel spin and traction issues on uneven terrain though. My previous mower was a John Deere, and I never had a problem with it slipping. I will also say that I wish it didn't have the arm rests. They get in my way too often, and I find myself mowing with them raised most of the time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I bought this mower in late August 2018. It was a replacement for another brand of mower that kept breaking down on me. The mower did great for the finish of the 2018 season but let me down the first time out in 2019. Not even a full trip around the yard and it chewed up and slung the deck belt. The mower is currently back at the dealership awaiting repair....hopefully in the next three weeks. I bought this mower to have something new that I could depend this time, that is not the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mower. I puchased this mower a month ago. So far it mows better than any mower I've ever owned. Cub Cadet is the way to go
