Rated 4 out of 5 by from the mower is good ! this rzt42 works great but getting somebody that knows the product is bad,went to order armrest for this mower and found they did not fit, called cub cadet and was told they are correct , I tried and found they are wrong , called again they tell Me I can't put armrest on that rzt l42 because I have control handles, but if you go on any place that sells them you can order armrest for it ! as it turns out they put 2 differant seats on the mower ! they need to clarify this problem and teach the customer service !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had mower for almost 1 year. Continually have issues with hydrolics getting power to wheels, somethimes the wheels have power as soon as levers are pushed or pulled other times it struggles to build up power to move mower and I have to pump the levers to build up power. Deck wash ports are convenient and mower cuts great when I can get it to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neighbor Mower Had most of the year, and really like it. Have been doing the neighbors yard for couple of months and she thinks it is the best, and if her husband was still with us he would want one. My first zero turn, and it is everything I thought it would be. Just wish I had a bigger yard now, haha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Have owned for several years easy to maintain cuts your mowing time to half of what you spend on a regular mower. Easy to operate and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really can't say enough about this machine. The first couple of times on my new mower, granted I was a little apprehensive, not about the machine, but me, thought it might be more than I could handle, its bold and powerful engine to its quick and agile handling, but once you get a few times into this machine it's quite fun to have that power and performance working with you. I would most assuredly recommend this type of mower to anybody and have already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a good job; real time-saver Due to severe R/A reasons, I traded my 2010 ZTR tractor version for a 2015 RZT-42. The levers are much easier to steer with than the conventional wheel and they give the mower more versatility. It takes me far less time to the lawn and the end result is a satisfying, even-cut appearance. However, avoid fast radius turns, otherwise scuff marks will result. I especially like the 8 position deck lever, which gives a broader selection of cutting heights. I'm also pleased with the aggressive 22 horse Kohler engine that always delivers, even in deeper grass. My biggest disappointment is that the blades will stop, even with the slightest backup motion. They have to be reset with the PTO switch, rather than having a forward motion restart, or a push button alternative. This is a real pain when rough-trimming around trees and I'm afraid that the PTO switch will become short-lived. I understand this may be done for safety reasons, but why aren't Cub's commercial line mowers equipped with the same feature? My other disappointment is that none of the RZT's are equipped with lights, for occasional dusk to immediate-dark mowing. Overlooking my dissatisfactions, I'll still highly recommend this mower to anyone who is looking for a quality time-saving mowing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second Cub Zero Turn I purchased a Z-Force 44 in 2004 and finally wore it out!! It has now been replaced by the RZT L 42. WOW!!! What an upgrade!!! I mow approx. 3 + acres around a farmhouse, barn, outbuildings, trees, and a pond. I was mowing straight areas with my tractor with a 3ph 60" finishing mower and the balance with my Z-Force 44...........3-1/2 hours. I now mow everything with my RZT L 42.........2-1/2 hours. Powerful, fast, comfortable.......what a pleasure!!!! Thank you CubCadet!!!
