Q: Is this a fixed wide-open throttle, or is the user able to adjust the throttle from idling (let it warm up a little) to fully open?
by Tom from Montana on April 03, 2016

A: Tom - the Cub Cadet 159cc engine on this mower has a fixed throttle setting. The throttle is not adjustable.

The Cub Cadet SC300HW is a great mower for anyone looking to maintain their small to medium sized yard and not break the bank doing so.

Equipped with a 159cc Cub Cadet 4-cycle engine, the SC300HW is easy to start and very fuel efficient. The variable speed self-propelled drive system powers the front wheels of this mower so you exert a lot less effort keeping your lawn nice and tidy.

The Cub Cadet SC300HW is set up as a 3-in-1 mower, so you'll have the ability to bag, mulch or... more

Cub Cadet
Tried out the 159cc cub cadet yesterday on my 4" lawn. I noticed the engine got a little bogged down when mulching heavy grass.

Wish mowers direct would have make know the engine is Chinese (not seeing good reviews on youtube) and not North American made. Mower is light & maneuverable, the drive works really well.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Quiet
Cons: Durability, Power

Proud Owner
Just bought this Cub Cadet, and so far everything positive said is right on, great mulch, powerful, smooth operating. takes some getting used to the self propelled...set up to engage when going forward, if not wanting to use then will require use of both hands. The flap on the back can be a nuisance at times when going backwards.

Have a sloping front yard and had no problems going up hill. Mulched my entire back and front yard and performed better then expected....also great on gas, and as... more

This is without question, the best mower that I have ever owned. The mower arrived very quickly and without any problems. I could not be more satisfied. This is my place to order from now on.

Seemed Good
After three uses, I just loved the feel of this mower - and it mulched better than the three Toros I've been thru recently. Today, Just as I was finishing, the front wheel drive quit - no self propulsion.

I called and got a local dealer that will service under warranty - they said it would be about six weeks for items not bought from them. Lets hope its an easy fix and I get it back before it snows.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Unreliable

Crappy Packaging
Good service, quick delivery. The box the mower came in looked like it had been used several times before and it was barely, and I mean barely, taped shut.

Surprised the mower made it here without falling out of the beaten up box. Might be worth paying your sales tax and buying local.

Very Disappointed.
I received my package sooner than I expected. However, the box was wide open, as if someone had taken something out of it. The SINGLE strand of tape on the top could not have possibly held this box together.

I received the mower and the mower bag okay, but I did not receive any instructions for the product. I am also not sure if I was supposed to receive anything else (extra parts, oil, etc), but I am very disappointed with Mowers Direct because of this.

Hopefully I can find the owner's... more

David,
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We ship out our products intact with all items included in the original packaging from the manufacturer. We believe something may have occurred in the shipping and FedEx taped to secure the package, yet loose items were not included. We will arrange to have everything sent out to you. We apologize for the inconvenience.

First Cub Cadet Purchase
Minor gripe in that one carriage bolt was missing from the handle , got at Home Depot for 17 cents , otherwise started with one pull first time, every time. Runs perfect so far.

Gets The Job Done
I've used it only a few times at the end of the season, but I've generally been pleased. I'm probably trying to push it a little harder than it is meant for, but it has gotten the job done.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Very Small Bag
