Q: Does the mower have a blade disconnect or blade override? Does the handle fold? Thanks
by Dennis from North Carolina on July 25, 2015

A: Dennis - the Cub Cadet SC500EZ does not have a blade override system. And the handle does not fold over either.
by Jose, Product Expert

by Derek from Wisconsin on June 27, 2015

A: Derek - yes, the Cub Cadet SC500EZ does have a recoil starter in addition to the electric start
by Jose, Product Expert
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.

Thank you. Walter Debusschere

by Walter Debusschere from Michigan on July 31, 2014

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the battery need periodic charging or does the engine have a charging system to keep it charged? Is this a sealed battery or does it require periodic maitenance (distilled water)?

Buy This One!
This is the best mower I have owned. It is exceptionally easy to start. It is great for quickly moving around shrubs, trees, etc. I highly recommend it for anyone who has any physical hand problems and it will never out walk you or make you feel like you can't keep up.

Looks Pretty But..
Nice engine, starts easily and very nice looking, but overall the worse lawnmower I've ever owned. It's a bucking bronco going forward and hard to pull backwards. The slightest bump causes the mower to surge forward or slow down. It clogs easily due to bolts on the inside, and it's near impossible to clean without fluids leaking. The cleaning hose connection doesn't seem to do much of anything. The side chute kept falling off, and eventually got run over by the blades and torn to shreds. The... more

Great Mower!
Did a lot of research and finally found and decided on this Cub Cadet. Good price for the quality. Quick, free shipping, although the box it was shipped in wasn't very ship worthy. Top was all open when it arrived but the parts were all intact and there was no obvious damage, thankfully. Really easy to put together.

Charged the battery for the specified time period and it started right up with the electric key start. No more pulling! As noted by a previous reviewer you will need to... more

Awsome Machine
At first I was worried about ordering on line without being able to touch the mower, but when it arrived I was very pleased. The service was very good. I was able to track it. Over all, I am very impressed with Mowers Direct and will do business with them in the future.

Shoddy Workmanship
I opened the carton, charged the battery for my electric start, then tried to start it. It made noise, but was definitely not connecting to the motor! Today I pulled it to start, did half of the lawn, and stopped. Couldn't restart a warm engine! NOW I NEED TO FIND A DEALER FOR REPAIRS.

The Perfect Mower
It was time to replace my Craftsman electric start, front wheel drive mower. My wife, who does much of the walk behind mowing, wanted electric start. I wanted rear wheel drive so it actually pulled the mower along. The reviews on most the mowers fitting our criteria were terrible or the mower was almost $1,000.

I stumbled across this mower while researching a Snapper. The front caster wheels are an added plus.

I have never bought a mower on-line, sight unseen before. It arrived with a... more

Great Self-propelled
Should have got a self-propelled mower sooner. It replaced my old riding mower so I can get more exercise. It does my front sloppy yard without a hitch. Electric start or pull start work seamlessly. Cleanup with water attachment is a breeze.

My only issue is the manual height adjustment on front wheels. It is a bit cumbersome to take the axel bolt out and move it when you want a shorter or higher cut.

Great Value
This is the easiest mower I have ever used. Glad I spent the extra money for the electric start. In fact the wife likes it so much she has taken over the mower. Now I have to drink beer and watch her mow. Sucks to be me!

Great Mower
I usually don't write reviews, but I thought I needed to on this mower. I bought it from a local cub cadet dealer and was skeptical after reading the reviews on this site and others. I have to say I am pleased with this product. The first pass was too short and it hung up like some of the reviews say, but after a height adjustment like any mower it was fine.

I did not have difficulty mowing in a straight line, although my 11-year-old daughter did due to the swivel wheels. They are... more

A Piece Of Junk
The nut on the front wheel was broken out of the box, and the handle broke off the first mow. The bag keeps falling off. Steer away from this mower!
