Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tractor I was always a fan of another brand but when they came out with a new proprietary oil filter system I decided to look around and discovered Cub Cadet and couldn't be happier. The cub just feels like a stronger, better machine and I'm not sure how or why but the Cub gives a better cut with no gouging on hills. The engine and transmission stays strong going up hill and the steering is far superior. The best feature is the thought that has obviously gone into this machine. The height and engagement control levers are on the right side so there is nothing in your way when getting on or off the tractor from the left side. The fuel filler is convenient and the level is easily monitored from the driver's seat. The seat is comfortable and will go back far enough to be comfortable. For the money I don't believe you can get a better machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tractor To Date! Strong & Smooth! This is absolutely my favorite lawn tractor to date. I upgraded from a Cub Cadet LTX 1042 and have been overly pleased in the almost 2 years I've owned the XT2 LX42. Not only does it run smooth, it has a very comfortable seat with armrests and it easily pulls my lawn roller and the bagging system is perfect for fall cleanup. I have had zero issues with my XT2 LX42.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great price and performance I bought to replace an older riding lawn mower. I looked at several but decided on the Cub Cadet because of price and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and easy handling I am totally pleased with my Cub Cadet. After a couple adjustments, it does a beautiful job of mowing and the handling is super easy. We have owned CC in the past.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trouble from the beginning I bought the XT2 model in Nov 2018 as part of a pkg deal including a snowblower. Since I started using the tractor this spring I have had problems. It only has 18 hrs of use and constantly keeps stalling. I mow 1/2 acre and at the beginning of the season would stall a couple of times but I was able to finish mowing. The last couple of weeks I can not keep it running long enough to finish yard. Unable to figure out what the problem is at this point. I will have to have the implement place I purchased it from pick it up and figure out what the problem is which will probably cost me hundreds. This being the case I will never be buying any cub cadet products in the future. I can just hear cub cadet reaching for tissues to dab at their tears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I purchased over a month ago and it is all I expected and more. Not only does it perform a advertise but more. It rides comfortably, turns and maneuvers effortlessly. Best purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from actually enjoy cutting grass with this thing. Turn ratio of 16 inches feels like a zero turn without my arms getting tired with those levers. So far, cut grass three times. Enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy owner Very happy with my purchase of the XT2, it is a few grades above my previous rider. The 22 HP Kohler doesn't slow down a bit when cutting my thick grass/weeds. My mowing time has been shortened almost half as I don't have to slow down to get a nice cut. The seat is comfortable and the armrests add a nice touch. I did my first oil change at just over 5 hours and it was a breeze. The gas pedal and reverse pedal took a little to get used to but I really like it. At this point I have no complaints.
