Rated 3 out of 5 by from When it runs Great mower ,cuts perfect since it runs. Bought mine May of 2018 work good first day brought home. Next time I tried it would not start .took back to dealer replaced switch . Month later , brought home cut great that day. Next time same thing I try to cut. Take back to dealer needs a fuel pump. Thanks to back order 10 month later I get it back run perfect cut great. I bought this due to warranty and great reviews on EFI technology. I had changed jobs working rotating shift . Tired of spending more time working on my tired Troy built than cutting grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable This mower always starts and hasn't had any problems since I've owned it. Great for small-medium sized yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tractor so far. Very happy with this tractor so far. I’ve always had good luck with Cub Cadets and I’m not disappointed. The only thing I was curious about was the omission of an electric PTO. My last cub about this size had one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EFI WHAAATT??? Game Changer! I have only had it a few months. still only 5 hours on it. Doing the first oil change today but it is comfortable to ride, the EFI makes it very easy starting. hopefully ends my monthly carburetor cleanings and other issues you have to deal with on a Carburetor tractor but we will see how well it holds up. Bluetooth phone app is cool. you have to log in every time so that is fun but I like feature. Still early but so far I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower I bought this in February 2019 , it has 10 hours on it , so far it has did really good , I got the XT1 LT42 EFI , fuel injection is real nice starts easy in cold or hot weather , when it throws the grass out it spreads the grass out so you don't need to rake , transmission is really great , you can push a button one time when you start the mower and mow in reverse while you are mowing , plenty of power , great turning radius around trees , I would recommend this for you to buy , I like the hour meter

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?)
