Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I grew up in the 80's/90's using my old man's Cub Cadet tractor so I may be a bit partial. As you can tell by the reviews and recommendations, this is a fantastic piece of machinery. I purchased my Cub in the summer of 2018 and after mowing all summer I have zero complaints. It starts every time, runs smooth, blade removal is easy, changing the oil isn't a problem, and the turning radius is second to none. Definitely would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS! After using a push mower for the last 15 years at my current property, and being continually aggravated with the mowing results, my neighbor generously offered his rider for my use. After a few uses, I knew right then and there that to reduce the time and unsatisfactory results, I needed to upgrade to a quality lawn tractor. After many hours of research, I visited a Cub Cadet Dealer and reviewed the XT1 and XT2 series. Decided to go with the XT2 LX42 as it had plenty of power and performance from the Kohler Twin Engine! I also optioned for the Cub mulching kit. After the first mowing, I knew I had made the right choice! This machine leaves a beautiful cut and has the necessary tight turning radius to easily handle the minor obstructions I have to deal with. I am currently at 8 hours of ownership, and now, for the first time in many years, actually look forward to mowing our lawn! My wife also shares the duties, and is very comfortable using the XT2. I performed the 5 hour service, and was pleasantly surprised at the ease of maintenance of changing the oil and filter; along with servicing the air filter. And should the fuel filter need service, it's right there above the oil filter offering easy access. Machine controls are well thought out: simple activation for reverse mowing, easy manipulation of forward and reverse foot controls, plenty of deck height options with ease of use, convenient blade engagement controls, all the necessary safety features, and a super comfortable seat with armrests. I also use the Smart Jet deck washing feature after each mowing. At this point of ownership, my Wife and I are completely satisfied with the features, performance, and price of this well engineered mower. Highly recommended!!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cannot raise deck height to match push mower My Cub push mower's deck can be raised higher than that of my X2, making for some uneven cuts when both mowers are used. I want higher cuts in the summer months, so I end up not using the X2. Cub does not offer tires/rims that would effectively raise the X2's deck by 1". If I find something off-market, the warranty is voided. The local Cub dealer has no solution for me. The web site states the deck height is up to 4" but during a Chat session I was told the max grass height would be 3.5". I hope the X2's snow plow attachment will make it a worthwhile purchase, but at this point I'm not a happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I have had this mower about 2 months and it is performing perfectly. Quick easy starts and lots of power to pull my wagon of wood up the hill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive tractor I have had the Cub for about a month and done 3 cuts on a 3/4 acre, and very hilly lawn. The tractor is very comfortable and ergonomic compared to others I considered. I also appreciate the additional features of the XT1 vs XT2. The XT2 makes a nice cut and distributes the clippings very well....though I will be adding a mulch kit very soon. The turning radius is impressive and makes navigating around the lawn obstacles very well. I do find that with any dew or moisture on the grass, the rear wheels have a tendency to slip when climbing some of he hills. I have also reduced the tire pressure a bit to smooth out the ride. Overall, I am very pleased and would recommend it for anyone looking for a garden tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made with easy access for servicing! This is my first cub cadet and I must say that I am very impressed. I have used this lawn tractor going on its second mowing season and it is a well made machine. Maintenance is a breeze. Steering is responsive with tight turn radius. Seat with arm rests is comfortable. This mower has plenty of power with the kohler v twin engine and the quality of the cut is better than the competitors. Thanks cub cadet!
