Rated 3 out of 5 by from Load and Terrible Bagging I just received my XT1 LT42 yestarday. After reading many review I thought I made the correct decision. This tractor cuts the grass nicely but WOW is it load. Make sure you wear something or you'll be deaf. Tried the bagger, seem to pick up the grass pretty well but be prepared for to shower when when your done because you will be covered in dirt. Not to mention you'll have to wash the tractor because there will be dirt and dust every where. It just blows the don everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The easiness to start and its turning radias I've bought the Cub Cadet-XT1LT42 just over a month ago and I just love it. I've never owned a Hydrostatic rider before. I'm still learning it but am so Happy I purchased one and it being this Cub Cadet. Sorry I don't have any Photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice After 2 months of use I cannot find anything to not be happy about. This is my 5th rider (2nd Cub) and it was the perfect match for our 1/2 acre mostly flat yard. We have had an unusually wet spring and at times the grass got really tall but even with the mulching kit this machine had no problem making the yard look great. It is easy to drive, takes little effort to steer, and has plenty of power. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower I got the mower for Christmas from my wife. I live the tractor, how it handles, the way it looks. The seat is comfortable, which may not sound like much, but I have a bad back and riding around doesn’t hurt me. If your in the market this is the one I recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth, smooth, smooth Owned for a month now. Love the hydrostatic drive and turning radius. Louder than I expected. I have the XT1 LT46 with the 2-cylinder Kohler and it's noticably quieter. All things considered, I'm very happy with the tractor so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mower, but made for large people I purchased my mower in April 2019. I like it, works well. However, every time I ride over a bump and I bounce out of the seat just a bit, it almost stalls out. I weigh 102#. I wish I was warned by the salesman that you need to weigh over a certain amount for the mower to run properly. My son devised a way to hold the seat down using several bungee cords. But if I shift my weight at all, such as shifting the mower lever, it still stalls. Can be very frustrating. Contacted customer service through their "Chat" but got no response. Wondering if there's a way to override the auto shut-off. So far the mower does a nice job on my 1 acre property.
