Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower After one mowing the lawnmower is great. Will have to see how it lasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Proud to own this fine machine ! I bought this machine at the Orange Big Box store in January as part of a clearance sale. It had been sitting at the store so long that the battery was dead and the salesman almost couldn't crank it. He replaced battery and got it to crank and I loaded it and brought it home. I've now run it for 3.5 hours and it runs like a sewing machine. Smooth and very powerful. Cranks the first time I turn the key every time. I am very satisfied with its build quality. I am 53 years old and fully expect to own and operate this great machine for the rest of my life. I am one happy Cub Cadet owner !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Features We got this XT1 LT42 EFI a year ago when we moved into our new house. First time with a half acre of land to care for and this does the trick. First, it mows great, as it should. Second, I love the fuel injection. Starts fast, the first time, every time - no matter the temperature, summer or winter. And no long term storage issues with a carburetor. Also, the Cub Connect hour meter with the Bluetooth based phone app is great for staying on top of maintenance. I'm looking forward to many happy years with Otto. (we name out lawn equipment. don't you?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lawn Tractor This is a great Lawn Tractor! But I underestimated the size of my lawn and should have gotten one with more powerful engine and greater cutting with. That said I really enjoy using it and it does a great job. I installed the mulching kit and it works great. I also installed the plow kit and now that its winter, its one of my tools to clear my driveway. It does okay as a snow plow. Even with snow chains and a weight kit, it will get stuck if I go off my paved driveway. But very happy to have it and teamed it with a 3X snow thrower that I use for deep snow. I use the lawn tractor for the lighter stuff because its quicker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far it has been great I really like the xt1 efi so fedar. Easy starts, cuts great, and bluetooth maintenance tracker is awesome. There is a lot i like about this mower but there are a few things i wish were of better quality. Like the hood, it looks aggressive which i really like but its plastic and seems like the tabs that lock the pieces together will not hold up over the years, like the old steel ones. I'd pay for the same looking hood if it came in steel as an option. I only have 3 hours on it total and there are already hairline cracks and discolored stress marks on those tabs. That is probably the biggest complaint at the moment. Turning radius is great, gets through wet grass fairly easy and very conservative on fuel. I know people complain about having to press a button in order to cut in reverse but it's really not that big of a deal. Although I wish you get off with it still running with the blades off for moving downed branches or opening and closing gates. That is kind of a pain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but......... mower runs great, tackles all jobs, but whenever I disengage blades, the belt comes off most of the time. I am getting tired of having to replace the belt constantly!!! Just over a year old, but I have already replaced 4 belts! Sounds like a design flaw to me.
