Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the front sweval wheels, deck cleaning I boughtthis mower 6 weeks ago. I looked at alot of mowers, I choose this one because of the front wheel design, because my yard requires alot of turning while mowing. I have used it a few times and can say this mower saves me about 20 minutes every time simple because of the zero turn wheels. The ability to wash the deck is super nice as wheel my garage never smells like a lawn mower anymore. I really am happy with this mower

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Great Zero turn feature best for bad backs, no pushing down on handle to turn, can almost mow with one hand, two faults - if pushing up a hill to trim very hard to roll back at you with this drive system and if mowing across a hill casters continuously pull down the hill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice lawn mower I love the zero turn ability. It does take time to get use to using. If you have a bumpy lawn it will be hard to keep straight but you can lock the front wheels, then you lose the zero turn capability. Starts on the first pull and has a pretty good size gas tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mower I have ever used I have been using a push or self propelled mower for the past 37 years of my life. I have never used a mower that cut the lawn this clean. The mulching quality is second to none. The build quality is unbelievable for a mower this price. The engine starts on half a pull. I have never used a caster wheel walk behind but its mobility was incredible. I have never been happier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only lasted a year I bought this a year ago. It will not start. The mower has a 3 year warranty but the company and thier authorized dealers blame it on bad gas. The gas was fine but changed it out and cleaned all parts. It still will not start. I think the carb is bad. Will have to fix it with my own money .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Overall I was skeptical when thinking about buying this because of the reviews. This will be my third Cub Cadet lawnmower in 18 years. The first one the engine failed but I got warranty compensation to buy a second one which I have had until the drive control broke and was too costly to repair. I like the Cub Cadet because of the caster wells, I have lots of things to cut around in the yard. When I got it home I notice the engine was smaller in size than the previous Cub Cadet mowers. It made it much easier to lift out of the box because it has a handle of the front, the handle also helps in not bumping into object standing in your yard. Putting the grass bag together was little tricky but otherwise not much of a problem putting the rest of it together. The grass bag is not as good as the one in the past. It has no front cover and when you take it off grass will fall out. And the whole connection area is not sealed well so grass clippings do fly out. I mostly do mulching which the set up for that was easier than the lawnmowers of past. The first thing to get used to is the drive control. Old one I pulled bar towards me now I have to push it away which at first made it difficult to control at first but after a few times I was able to work it much better and because it is lighter in weight easier to handle. Yes Cub Cadet has used plastic parts like the wing nuts and you need to be careful on how close you get to bushes, small trees and rocks that you use for decoration. I find it a little hard to start since you have to push the bar forward and at the same time pullback on the rope making it awkward. Pulling backwards I do find the plastic guard on the back bottom can sort of get stuck I am thinking at some point it will break. Also with a smaller engine, I have a sloped yard, the wheels don’t spin in place as much requiring me to push it the slope to get going. The old one was heavier and the wheels would spin in high gear. It has hose connection to clean out the underside but I have not tried it yet. I did not find that it cuts uneven as others had stated. So overall I like it and approve it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job, quality of some components is poor I bought the SC500EZ (electric start and caster wheels) from a small-town farm implement store that sells and services Cub Cadet. This is my first Cub Cadet purchase. Mowed only once so far, so really can't recommend the product to others until it stands the test of time. But I wanted to relay my experience to anyone out there looking to buy. It cut the lawn just fine (mulched). The salesman said the caster wheels are very popular because they eliminate the need to lift the front end up when turning around. I'm over 60 years old, and my wife also likes to mow, so it seemed like a good idea. They worked as advertised. It was incredibly easy to maneuver the mower around the yard. The combination of the personal-pace self-propelled system and the caster wheels made the whole thing effortless. However, be aware of several issues you will encounter as you get in close when mowing around pine trees, bushes, and shrubs: 1. The caster wheels get in the way. They sit up so high they get tangled up in the shrubs and you have to back up to extract them and maneuver them around the shrub. I have only used regular wheels before this, and I must say the regular wheels were easier around the edges (but harder to use in the open field). 2. Backing up is often difficult because the rubber guard across the back of the deck flips under the mower and somehow adds significant drag. 3. Near the left back wheel there is a 6 inch lever that sticks up and out. It is used to adjust the height of the back wheels. It gets caught in the shrubs as you go along the edges. I just know that it will break off one of these days when I hit a shrub too hard. A shorter lever that doesn't stick out so much would fix this. 4. This is my biggest issue: The electric start battery compartment is on the right side of the deck, along the edge. It is poorly and cheaply designed, and failed in TWO ways during my FIRST mowing. The compartment is basically a plastic box with a plastic cover with two flaps that snap into slots on the box, holding the cover on. Inside the box is a battery at the bottom and a bunch of electrical wires, fittings, and fuse box on top of the battery. There is a small opening on the outermost side of the box where the charger cord plugs into the battery. Hanging on the side of the box nearby the charging port is a piece of rubber that is plugged into the charging port when it isn't in use. a. The first failure was that the cover kept coming off of the box. The box is too small, extremely full, and there is a lot of pressure on the cover. The flaps in the cover just don't hold the cover on. They pop out easily and the cover comes off. The simple vibrations of mowing, and especially the scraping of shrubs easily pops the cover off. The dealer told me to duct tape the cover on. b. The second failure was that I lost the rubber piece that protects the charging port. Scrape along one shrub and it will tear the rubber piece off the side of the battery box. You won't find the rubber piece either. Now there are two exposed holes on the side of the battery box: the charging port and the hole where the rubber piece was anchored. The dealer told me to cover the holes with electrical tape. I also needed to adjust the mower height. The back wheels was easy. So were the caster wheels. But, I noticed the wing nut on the caster wheel is made of plastic that bends when you tighten it. I think this is the next thing to break. I bought this mower because my old mower was falling apart. Yes, it was held together with duct tape in many places. Now, after only one mowing, my new mower is being held together with duct tape and electrical tape. Really?
