Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough I purchased this gsx 1 year ago 4/2018 and i have put it to the test. I haul firewood thru the woods up and down a huge hill. The diff lock has been awesome esspecially with the rain weve had. And it mows great no complaints it has been a very good tractor so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy!!! I buy cub cadets because they are American made, but unfortunately my XT3 is a total piece of junk! I purchased it in July of 2015 and since then I've had to replace the whole ignition switch (2017) and now a coil!!! All Cub Cadet told me was sorry!!! I'll never purchase another Cub and I suggest anyone who reads this review does the same!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money with this unit.... Bought unit in 2016 with 60" fabricated deck and snow blower. Currently has 225 hours. The good is the heavy duty fabricated deck, locking differential and nice seat. The bad has been in twice for weak transmission and sticking throttle cable. Transmission still weak, won't even go in winter with snow blower up just sits there. Dealer added transmission oil and it no made difference and was charged even though it didn't fix the problem and should be under warranty. Cable still sticks after mowing, something inside melted and causes it to stick when cooled off, once again no repair done by dealer. Cub Cadet claims a excellent warranty but it is no good if not support by dealers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mower deck Mower deck pain in he butt to remove. The fab deck is heavy and the wheels do not rotate like the older decks. I remove my deck every winter and install a snow plow. Has any one made casters to make it easier to remove the deck. CUD CADET DROP THE BALL ON THIS ONE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower. Ok I bought this xt3 gs to replace my cub cadet slt1554. So thats what I comparing this to. Here is the good, bad and ugly. The good, it has a smooth transmission that bites the ground so there isnt much slipping or spinning. It is sharp looking and a great value for the money. Starts up easily and runs on gas with ethanol. Lights are bright enough to cut at night if you wanted. Steering is very tight and responsive and the front end steering parts are heavy duty. Seat is super comfortable with the arm rests. And a nice feature is the cup holder/phone holder. The bad, the deck (i got the fabricated deck) seems to hold grass on the underside so it needs to be cleaned a lot. The deck is also hard to clean around the deck spindles without taking the covers off first. Ive found this needs to be done everytime I cut which isnt that bad as I like to grease the deck each time I use it. But I am cutting 5 acres of grass. The hood is not aligned properly so there is a constant yellow powder(fiberglass hood) getting rubbed onto the black part of the machine where it rubs. Other than that as a comparison my last machine is still going strong and seems to have more power than this new one, of course my slt has a 27hp motor and this one has a 22hp motor, both have 54 inch decks. Overall a sturdy machine. Would I recommend it, yes I would. For the money you cant beat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Built sturdily and rugged, up to the task at hand. Mows effortlessly and the power steering on GSX is a plus. I was not disappointed with the purchase and you won’t be either. The only fault I find is the need for water/dust proof headlights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Workhorse Thank you Cub Cadet for making a real work horse with shaft drive and what I consider a garden tractor. This XT3 is my second shaft drive Cub Cadet. The first was a 2130 many years ago. I just took delivery a week ago and put my XT3 GSX to work using a box scraper to smooth out my steep long driveway. Traction lock is essential for my needs to get the bite going up. I also relocated about 2 ton of driveway stone with the Cub Hauler, a truly handy cart. This tractor just seems to power through everything. With a set of tire chains, it'll be unstoppable. By the way, the turning radius is phenomenal mowing with the 48" fab deck. I encourage anyone considering a new garden tractor to check out the XT3, it's in a class competitors have no equal and there is a whole lot of value for the price you'll pay.
