Great Swivel Mower For The $$$
This is a great swivel mower for an entry level price. Overall, the mower performs extremely well even in thick St Augustine grass. I run the mulcher and do not see any surface "hay" the next day, which tells me it mulches fine enough to soak back to the thatch layer quickly. The mower starts easily on the first pull every time.

The main con of this mower and this is any swivel front mower's achilles heel, is the ability to "headin" close to a fixed point. The offset of... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Pulling Backward Drags, No Chassis Wash

So Easy To Maneuver
The casters just make sense. You have no idea how much effort the casters will save you until you have tried them on a lawn with obstacles and the variable self propelled feature is great. I can cut my lawn without feeling drained and faster too. Thanks Mowers Direct for making this model available.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None Yet

Delivered On Time And Is Working Well
The delivery driver was very nice. He unloaded the mower and helped me get the rather heavy box into the garage. There was no damage to the mower.
It was easy to assemble and starts on the first pull of the cord.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features

Hard To Start
Mower is hard to start. Runs well, and is more maneuverable than our Craftsman. The Craftsman is easy to start after 7 years of use.

Love It, But It's Not Perfect
I don't know why all walk-behind mowers don't have casters for front wheels. It is brilliant! It requires SO much less effort to maneuver the mower around trees and any non-straight line... no need for the constant push-down-to-change-direction that ALL fixed-wheel mowers require. And on this one, fixing the front wheels is a snap when you want to mow along a slope.
This Cub Cadet starts super-easily, runs very quietly, and I much prefer the rear-wheel drive to front. Tip - Front-wheel drive... more

Great Mower
Had a Honda and changed to this. Had a tried and true Honda engine. Starts on the first or second pull. We have Zoysia and it mows it great and does not bog down. We mulch our clippings, it cuts it so fine you do not see any clippings left on the grass. I would highly recommend this mower at this point in time.

This is the second one of the same model I have purchased. First one lasted ten years and still going with new owner. The new one feels lighter and smoother. Seems to be well built and starts easily.

Weak Variable Speed Control Lever
I am well satisfied with the mower with the one exception. The speed control lever is too weak. Hard to control speed.
Pros: Durable, Features, Price, Fast, Reliable, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, The Only Complaint I Have Is The Speed Control Lever Is Too Weak

New Cub Cadet Mower
This is a great mower. I really like the swivel front wheels. I have Zoyzia grass and I cut my back yard on the # 2 setting for the first cut of the season and I mulched it and there wasn't clumps, it just cut it so fine I was very impressed. I am now cutting on # 3 which makes my lawn look great. I am one happy guy with my new mower.

Not A Turf Mower
I purchased this mower after reading several reviews which were pretty good but after purchasing I realized this was not the mower for my purpose which is mowing turf type Bermuda grass with edged beds. The blade adjustment changes the rear only and the front of the housing stays the same, so the front drags through the grass and will push leaves to the side. The housing is the same width as the wheels so when mowing close to the edged bed the wheels will fall into the lower bed and the mower... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Overall Poor Design

Horrible Clogging Lawn Mower
Beware: With all the rain this year, you may shockingly have to cut your lawn more than 1 time a week! But, not if your lawn mower constantly clogs every time you try to cut it! Horrible lawn mower...do not buy. And when asked for a refund, I was incredibly disappointed with the service at Lawn Mowers Direct. I will NOT be buying here again!
