Rated 2 out of 5 by from Big improvement Only thing that drives me nuts about Cub cadet is that they do not have the blade tip speed info anywhere. I've wasted hrs on the phone trying to find out simple specifications that they know, but won't make available to the consumer like other brands do. Other then that pro's about this machine are taller wider tires, 2800 hydros, thicker handles, comfy seat and a good price. Does not cut well, and back to blade tip speed because I would have given 3 stars because Bts matters for a good cut. Also why not give that info to a consumer unlike all other brands. I'm not impressed with the cut and im trying to determine wether it's a low bts or deck. Is the fancy design, big tires, and other improvements done just to hide it's horrible cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This mower is amazing! I purchased my Ultima ZT2-50 a couple of weeks ago. After mowing a couple of times, I am very impressed. I shopped several brands (red, orange, and green ones) of zero turn mowers, and the Ultima series won hands down. I wanted a mower that was well built, easy to maintain, had professional features, and was easy to use. Also, I was looking for a "step up" from the big box stores without getting into professional mowers. This one did all of that! The Kawasaki FR series engine is quieter than the one I had in my previous tractor. Cub Cadet supplied a oil drain hose routed to the bottom of the unit for easy oil changes. Nice touch! Having the Hydro-gear ZT-2800 transmissions means that maintenance will be easy and long life is expected. As others have mentioned, the seat is very comfortable and highly adjustable. The multi-tool stored on-board is a handy thing to have. I have used it already to change the control arm height and to fine tune the forward speed limit on the right side while I was out in the field. No tools are required to adjust the control arm front to rear distance when centered. Having the built-in LED head lights is nice, but I have not had a chance to test them yet in actual use. If you were going to mow often in "low light" conditions, I think a bit more light might be needed. Oh yeah, it cuts grass fantastically too! My total mowing time has been cut in half. I may end up being "that guy" that mows the neighbor's yard too just for fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine! I bought my ZT2 50" a few weeks ago. This mower is very well built. The seat is the most comfortable of any mower I have ever operated. The Kawasaki engine runs very smoothly and has plenty of power. This mower has features of mowers that cost twice as much. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST RESIDENTIAL MOWER IN THE WORLD!!!! I have been mowing since I was a kid. Like most people, I’ve experienced several mowers. Some people are brand loyal and I get that. My family has been servicing mowers since the 60’s. We have seen all the residential mowers come and go. What we have seen through the years is that Cub Cadet mowers are the best bang for your buck. Like all machines, they need proper care. But Cub Cadet mowers will give you the best cuts, longer mowing life, and owner satisfaction than any other brand. So when it came time to go shopping for a new mower, Cub Cadet was where I looked first! I’m extremely proud of this brand! There are many great brands out there. I’m not knocking any others out there. I’m just giving y’all my opinion on the best residential mowers in the world, and that’s Cub Cadet. The Ultima ZT2 is the best residential mower in the world!!! I purchased the 50 inch deck for versatility. The bigger tires give you unbelievable traction!! I mean, this is a light 600 lbs mower and with huge tires that means you won’t be making ruts as easily. I mowed my yard for an hour after it had rained all day and I never lost traction in the wet grass!! I was mind blown!! This frame is Super Man strong!! The Kawasaki motor is so powerful for tough jobs but honestly a child could use this mower! It’s like driving a new luxury car!!!! Just Butter!! It glides, it does not jerk at all!! Not over bearing or intimidating at all. The motor is not too loud either. I am amazed!!! With 3.5 gallons of gas I can go a long time mowing!! The rubber floor mat takes so much vibration out for more comfort for your feet. Same with the handles. The grips give you ultimate control for your ultimate mowing on this ultima mower!! No more mowing fatigue!! You just don’t want to get off this mower!!! It makes it even harder to get off when you can see in the evenings and at night with the LED lights!!! They are amazing!! I do admit I wish they were a bit brighter but they are plenty bright enough to mow at night!! From a maintenance frame of mind there has never been a better mower created!!!! I’m serious!! You have easy access to everything and I mean everything!!! The floor plate comes off after undoing one bolt. It’s fully removable fast and gives you a huge amount of room to clean or maintain your deck and belts. It comes with a tool to undo the floor bolt that has a secure place easy to get and put back. The seat is extremely comfortable!! It is adjustable forward and backwards by a lever under the seat. It folds forward and gives you full access to the battery, wires, gas tank, and the front of motor. Just unbelievable!!! I have never seen a mower with everything so easily accessible!!! I have not been paid to say anything!!! I’m just a proud Cub Cadet Ultima ZT2 owner!! I can’t say enough good about this Ultima mower!! IT IS THE BEST RESIDENTIAL MOWER IN THE WORLD!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I purchased my ZT2 50" just a short while ago (Feb, 2019) and although I have only used the unit to mow my 1 acre property three times now I am really happy with the overall performance; this mower has made mowing my lawn a joy again! Controls are easy to use, and power of the Kawasaki engine is great! Also the Aeroforce deck gives such a wonderful finish to my grass (mixed St. Augustine and weeds!). I am happy with my purchase and do recommend this unit to other prospective buyers looking for a similar size and type zero-turn unit at a great price. Kevin
