Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the ease of handling Bought it about a month ago and it has been one of my best investments. Easy to learn and a joy to ride. Wish I would have bought one years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple to manage! I bought this a year ago and love it! Have 135 hours on it! Installed a mulching kit and love it also! I have to mow every 5-6 days in spring and early summer! Have had zero problems with it, easy to change oil, grease the spindles, change the blades etc! Will definitely buy another if I ever wear this one out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Throws drive belts I really like the mower but it keeps throwing the drive belt off. Not often but about every other year it throws the drive belt off and here I am towing it to my garage then having it picked up for a two week stay at the shop. Frustrating! Other than that the mower is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality We have racked up almost 400 hours on ours with out a single problem. As long as you keep the blades sharp it will mow with a very high cut quality and spreads out he clippings very nicely to avoid any clumped up grass on the lawn. It also has plenty of power to cut through the thickest grass without having to slow down for stragglers. One thing to think about with the 48 inch model is that the deck doesn't stick out very far. This isn't an issue just something to get used to if you have used a different mower. I think this is some of the best quality for the money in the residential mowers. The mowers finish is also very good and can looks almost new even after a few year of mowing 8 hours a week during the summer. I use this mower to mow about 10 different yard in the the summer and it has been great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I cut my time in half from 3 hours Controls are easy to use I will change the rear tires to a little more agressive ones as the lawn tires do not sute my yard as well more for flat yards, my yard has hills and when the grass is a little wet I get slip control

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built to Last ....forever So here is my Cub story... I sold my motorcycle 20 years ago to buy the red garden tractor that bears the 4 letter word - ok, enough said about that other brand. I loved my tractor and it served me well for years as I cut my 1/2 acre lawn. When my family and I moved to another state and gained additional grass to cut it was simply time to retire my tractor and up grade to a nice zero turn. I thought my brand selection was a "slam dunk" easy decision until I did the side by side comparison. My dealership featured Cub Cadet and "the other brand". I could not help but notice the fit and finish quality of cub... by the way I should mention that both brands were the same price. As I drove both zero turns and hovered over the quality and workmanship of the cub I felt a change of opinion quickly sweep over me. The cub had a solid feel and was very responsive during turns. I also was impressed with the dual gas tanks and reliable Kawasaki engine. My choice was the cub z force LZ48 and I told the dealership to write up the deal and arranged delivery. I have had the zero turn for about 2 months now and could not be happier. My neighbors and friends have complimented me on my selection and some have even explored upgrading to a new cub. All I can say at this point is "Thank You" and job well done cub cadet - keep up the good work. Get your new cub today and cut grass like a champion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower I was really torn between a ZTR and the XT3. Went to the local dealership (several times) and asked many questions. Finally decided to go with a ZTR and got this mower. Had previously taken 3 hours to mow my yard, and this mower, even counting the learning period, took less than two hours. Some of the grass was extremely high and tough, it still got through it with no problems. Engine ran quietly and well, and the unit performed flawlessly. Would recommend this mower to anyone looking for a mower of this caliber. Definitely a workhorse. Also, if living in eastern NC, I would highly recommend Mills International (Kinston) to purchase your mower. They were extremely helpful and I think went out of their way to not just sell me a mower, but to provide me with the correct solution for my home.
