Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mower My wife and I purchased this XT2 GX54 D last month, very Impressed! Previously we owned the XT2 LX46 FAB, The new GX54 D has much more power and the locking Diff. Is very nice to have. The two downfalls of Cub Cadet Is I think they should have wrapped the plastic foot place up and around the edges so your feet dont wear off the paint, the other flaw is there needs to be some kind of mud flap to prevent dirt and sand from being thrown on the deck from the tires, two little fixes and I would give this mower a 5 star instead of 4. All & all we are very happy and pleased with both cub cadets that we owned! GREAT MOWERS PEOPLE, GET THE XT2, MUCH MORE MOWER THEN THE XT1!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mower cuts grass...when broken it just sits. Bought my Cub Cadet XT2 GX54 D last October and while mowing my 3 acre vineyard I quickly realized it's wider than my last mower and I had to watch where the deck sides were at all times. The grass chute side (right) especially, as it protrudes another 10 inches than the left side. I can't mow down the center of each vineyard row. When I'm mowing the hillside it doesn't matter and the extra width allows for less trips back and forth. I get up the slopes easily with the locking differential and around tight corners without slipping when the grass is wet. One really nice feature is to mow in reverse as I back out of tight spaces near fence lines. The mower deck and blades clean easily with the aid of the water hose connection and the seat with arm rests is comfortable. The choke-less start feature is appreciated when it's cold or raining. The wide tires make it easy to control. I've mowed grass and weeds as tall as my head in the spring and it had enough power to keep running except the grass chute couldn't eliminate the cuttings quick enough without plugging up a bit and forced me to back up to clean the chute out. The fan belt did slip off once and I had to put it back on devising a tool to pull the belt tensioner back. Overall, I recommend the Cub Cadet. One big negative! The manual, as a previous reviewer mentioned, is from a third world country! I couldn't locate a part drawing either in the paper manual or online. I resorted to using the telephone and was on hold for 20 minutes to ask a customer service assistant (yes, don't mention this in your review as is their policy), what part I needed. She was very helpful. I found out there is a "pressure cap" on the "nose roller" to hold the nose roller in place that affixes to the "J" shaped pin which allows the deck to run smoothly over bumps and uneven terrain. We do it yourselfers would prefer to not waste time calling a telephone rep when we can read part drawings ourselves. Not to mention I had no idea the "pressure cap" part was missing at all and ended up driving over the nose roller when it fell off and crushing it to smithereens. I now wait for a week while the part is shipped via UPS. Cub Cadet is sending the part free of charge. is much appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just received my XT2 GX54 D! Need to qualify this up front: I just received this tractor on 5/16/19 and did my first cut of my 2.5 acre lot. Also, this is my first GT, or any tractor, ever. So far, it is living up to every expectation after doing tons of research and interviews with other GT users! It is a beast! It delivered a perfect cut...never hesitated...even at full speed (but I mostly cut at half speed). I have some 45 degree inclines. I checked for safety, engaged the reverse cutting system, and systematically cut up and down the hills vertically. It had power to spare at full throttle. Things I like: Power, fuel injection, electric start, easy to engage blade, reverse cutting, big grippy tires and strong deck. I'm a big guy (6'0, 280) and its comfortable for me...the elbow rest are movable too. This is making me glad I chose the GT vs a zero-turn. Only thing I don't like, but can deal with: With pedal activated speed control, my foot gets tired. However, I expect to use the cruise control more as I get to know the yard. I expect it will perform well with a snow blade this winter. I will update my review in 3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built solid machine Had this tractor a month now and used it 3 times to mow. Great machine, plenty of power and great cut. It turns tight to cut around trees and easily handles slopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I have been waiting to write this review until I had a chance to use this tractor with the 42” 3 stage snowblower. My drive way and parking area are about 15000 square feet and this tractor and snow blower easily cleaned about 5 inches of wet slush in about 45 minutes. The snowblower threw this heavy wet snow about 30 to 35 feet. Awesome machine great value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and excellent cut. I've owned a Craftsman tractor, John deere home depot. This Garden Tractor by far has been wonderful to drive , cut grass and bags nicely even when the grass is very damp it never get restricted my other lawn tractors always had given me grief but not this one Im completely happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good tractor cheap design around edges I bought this tractor last year and was sure I left a review which no longer appears here. I like the tractor overall, but the manual is a rag poorly illustrated and poorly worded on dirt rag paper. Looks like it was produced in a third world country. The mower deck attachment engineering is archaic with cotter pins, no handle to loosen the belt (instead there is just a punch out and you must use your own tool to lever it loose). I have a 25 year old other brand tractor that has more modern engineering on deck removal. Gas gauge is a cutout where you can simply see the plastic fuel tank, but not much use when dark. Other than that as I said I think it is a good tractor. Have used the diff lock more than once, so handy to have. Performance has been good so far. The thing that really got me was the almost throw-away manual which I found chintzy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome features The Cub Cadet is awesome! Push button start is a lot of fun on a Lawn Tractor. The 26 horse Kohler engine and locking differential make this the ultimate rider. I like all the available accessories that can be attached. Everything is user friendly and designed ergonomically. This is a lifetime purchase I am happy to make.
