Q: Does the mower have a blade disconnect or blade override? Does the handle fold? Thanks

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

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.

Not Too Happy
Great mower when it works. Problem with rear drive out of the box.
Only powering through left rear wheel. 4 - 6 weeks to get back from repairman because of backlog.
After 2nd mowing began to smoke heavily. Still trying to figure that one out.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality

Best Lawn Mower I Ever Owned.
I am disabled and got this mower so my wife can start it easy and handle it very well. She said that she doesn't mind helping me with the lawn at all..

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.

Riding On Rails...
This mower is a purchase after I had returned a 2015 Craftsman mower with electric start to sears and started looking for a better option.

This mower blows it away in performance and quality.

Couple things to note that I didn't know until I purchased it.

1) the front wheels lock into place to keep them from swiveling, great unknown feature. Un lock them quickly by pulling up on the brass hooks on top of the wheels.

2) Changing the height of the front wheels, not that easy. You take... 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 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

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.

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

Powerful
I am 5'3" tall & weigh 180lbs. My husband put the mower together & set the handle bar in the lowest position for me. We did not install the bag catcher.

It is a learning process to use the mower as it will shoot off like a very fast rabbit once engaged. It mows great & has many level selections. The front swivel wheels are super & operate quite well.

It will get the yard mowed in less time if you can walk fast.

The only complaint I have is the shortness of the bar... more

"Hassle free ordering, smooth transaction, fast shipping. FedEx just set the large heavy box beside our garage with no notice what so ever which we thought was odd since someone could have taken it as our garage is very visible from the street. We felt lucky that hubby found it as we do not use the garage often."

Great Mower!!!
I purchased this mower after owning a Honda Harmony for a long time. It finally gave up on me and I seriously considered buying another one until I read about the Cub Cadet and figured I would give it a try.

The two key features that drove me to buy a Cadet were the electric start and the swivel wheels since I have a lot of trees and bushes in my yard to maneuver around. The electric start works excellently and getting around the trees and bushes is a breeze.

One item I hadn't even... more
