Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower Bought my SLX50 with the fuel injected engine last year. Mows great and throws the cuttings a good distance. You have to careful of the wind or you’ll be wearing cuttings. Mower was missing a lug nut when I got it but was able to obtain one. The dealer forgot to give me the mulching kit. I called Cub Cadet and they took care of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mower Bought 1 year ago. Love the taller tires. Can cut through tall grass easily. Only issue is pulling yard roller or heavier wagon bogs it down. Love the quick connect blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my XT2 SLX50 This is my 2nd full season with the tractor and am at 53 hours. I mow 3.5 acres and maintain some nature trails with it. Plenty of power, love the EFI engine. I sharpen the blades twice per season and it cuts very well. Couple of words of advice... run the tires at 10lbs... it rides smoother... and lube the mower deck belt tension arm once a year with grease by removing the bolt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cautiously optimistic After a month of ownership I am cautiously optimistic that my new Cub will be a good machine. With only 2.1 hours on the clock, I was mowing my lawn and all of sudden the tractor just stopped! Engine and blades were going, but no forward motion! Call my dealer, and they come and pick it up immediately. Turns out it threw the drive belt. Dealer is great! Returned it the same day. Otherwise it mows great. We will see how it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I purchased this machine in March and have eight hours on it. The fuel injected engine produces excellent power. It cuts and bags very well and the clippings are very fine. No chute clogs so far even with wet grass. The deck is rugged and for a 50” floats very well. The steering is outstanding. Turns easily and very tight. The tires don’t dig in on tight turns and it is very easy to stripe straight lines over a distance. The dealer was excellent too. Very satisfied with what is a capable machine that has cut my lawn cut time in half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we expected Five hours into using our new Cub Cadet, and I have no concerns. Mowing my lawn has gone from a 2+ hour job to 30 minutes. The towable and bagging system are excellent. And the EFI system is awesome. We’ve had other lawn tractors in the past (not recently), and I absolutely did my research on this one. The quick release blade system was a major plus, and a unit that could be an all around yard tool without needing to step up to a garden tractor was important. I also wanted a dealer that answered the phone, responded to text messages, and wanted my relationship and business was all a part of the decision. So far this mows, hauls, bags as hoped. We don’t have the time to waste hours mowing twice a week, and when I work gives us a break I sure don’t want all of that break to be eaten up by yard work. Oil change was easy....although finding a replacement oil filter has been a giant pain in the neck (even in a city with lots of places to find one). Will add a snow blade for the winter to help with clearing my neighbor’s wall and driveway along with our own. Very happy with our unit!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not up to par My previous Lawn Tractor was a Cubcadet 2518, A great Lawn Tractor. The SLX50 leaves a lot to be desired compared to the 2518. , It scalps my lawn and is a lot less sturdy than my previous Cubcadet. The fabricated deck needs better wheels.
