Q: Out of the box, does the battery need to be charged for 12 hours?
by Jim from Washington on August 30, 2014

A: Jim - yes, you would need to charge the on-board battery on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ before you would be able to use the electric start feature on the mower. The battery does not come fully charged as it's shipped to us from Cub Cadet.
by Jose, Product Expert

Thank you. Walter Debusschere

by Walter Debusschere from Michigan on July 31, 2014

A: Walter - yes, the front caster wheels can be locked in a straight ahead position by simply re-positioning the lock pin on each caster wheel. The mower comes with the side discharge chute cover.
by Jose, Product Expert

Great Mower!
My wife has cut our grass for the last 39 years of our marriage. This is only the 4th mower I have purchased and the only one that has been self propelled with electric start. Initially my wife felt the mower was too heavy. However, after the second time she cut our yard she fell in love with the instant start and the way the mower adjusts to her pace. The swivel front wheels eliminates the need to pick up the front of the mower when making turns. I now help her at times using our old push... more

Disapointed
Very difficult for me to maneuver. The handle is too high, it doesn't pull up slopping areas in my yard. It might as well be a heavy push mower without swivel wheels. If your yard is perfectly flat without objects to get around this might be the mower for you.
For me, I'm greatly disappointed.

Very Nice For The Price
I had a Honda that I was continually having problems with. It has the swivel wheels up front, but too many little things went wrong. The Cub is less expensive than the Honda but has a heavier duty deck and drive train than the Honda. The Cub steering is a little heavier in the turns, but I wouldn't have a mower without them now. I wish the Cub had a little more horse power for those days when I can't get to the lawn on a 7 day basis. The drive sensor is a forward motion on the drive bar. ... more
Pros: Durable, Price, I Love The Articulating Wheel Up Front Makes Mowing Easier
Cons: Steering Is Heavy Up Front

"Received on time, but the box had been opened and not taped together very well. A few parts were missing and the cowling had minimal damage, but not broken. Customer service was about the best I have ever worked with. Wanted to know what was missing and fixed it. I am impressed."

Love This Mower!!!
I am a sixty year-old female, and while I'm "strong as an ox," I get very frustrated with having to pull start a mower. I hired people to do the yard, just so I didn't have to pull that darn cord! But then I saw this electric start, and I thought I'd give it a shot. At $40 a week for lawn care, I figured I could have this thing paid off in just a couple of months! I bit the bullet, and I couldn't be more pleased. I get my yard done in no time, and I'm very, very glad I made this... more

Really Nice
Bought this mower to replace my John Deere. Gave my old mower to my mom as it was also electric start. She's getting older and has trouble pull starting a mower. I was never really all that happy with my John Deere. This Cub seems well made and is quieter and lighter than my old one. Swivel wheels take some getting used to but after using a couple of times you get used to it and kind of like it. Wife loves the electric start. Only complaint was the box it was shipped in was a little beat up and... more

Love This Mower
My wife is in her 50's and loves to mow with a walk-behind even though our teenager mows the bulk of the yard swiftly with a zero turn she wants to be more detailed and timely with the front yard. She has some back trouble so I went looking for my options on an electric start and liked the reviews I saw on this Cub. I never bought a mower before sight unseen but so far I'm very pleased and my Honey is tickled! And the front yard is beautiful. The only thing we don't like about it is the... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

Great Mower
I assembled the mower, charged the battery, added gas and hit the button. It started right up and mows great. No disappointments here. Just what this 75 year old was hoping for.

Next Best Thing To A Riding Lawnmower!
Although my yard is only 1/5 acre, I was planning on getting a riding lawnmower because I like helping out my neighbors. My daughter was being helpful one day and volunteered to mow the yard for me. I forgot that I had lowered the cutting height when I did my back yard, and she ran over a cast iron drainage access pipe and broke the connecting rod in the engine. Since you can't only have a riding lawnmower and I didn't have the money to buy both a riding and push mower, I decided to get a... more
