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

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 Lawnmower, But...
I bought this lawnmower earlier this year and love it. It ran great for the first couple of weeks. It was very easy to use and I could mow the lawn in a very short period of time. However, as time has progressed, it hasn't been running as well. The engine will run well and then all of a sudden start cutting out. I have no idea what the problem would be. Anyways, the service through Mowers Direct was great - shipping was free and fast, and the mower was discounted. I just wish I could get it to... more

I had my lawn cut for 31 years and decided to start cutting it myself. I love this unit. So easy to use and operate. Mowers Direct is the place to shop. Great prices and fast delivery!!!

I recommend them for anyone looking for a lawn mower or more!

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.

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

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.

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.

Very Happy With This Purchase
I purchased this mower a month ago. I have been very happy with this mower, but I have to admit it didn't start off that way. I had a previous model of the electric start Cub Cadet which lasted 7 years before I had to replace some parts and decided I might as well buy a new one since I was a bout 25% there with replacement parts.

This battery lasts much better, as I have mowed 4 times and not had to recharge yet, it says it should last a summer depending on how often you start it. I... more
