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
Q: Does this have a recoil start for backup
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.
by Jose, Product Expert

dischgarge?
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
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)?
by Ken from Idaho on May 10, 2014

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.

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

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
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Durable, Easy To Store

Good Mower
Mower arrived in perfect condition and it's important to follow the instructions for its assembly, especially, pulling the handle out of the blade area. The mower is heavy but, handles going up small inclines very well. The adjustable speed is nice as is the ability to keep all wheels on the ground when turning due to the swivel front wheels.

When mowing inclines sideways, locking the front wheels makes it easier. The electric start is great. Height adjustment allows cutting at 4" as... more

You Won’t Be Disappointed
I’ve owned several lawnmowers over my 60+ years. My last 4 were Snappers. All were very good mowers, but very expensive. Now that my Wife and I are retired and more or less on a fixed income the Snappers were out of our price range. Several friends of ours have Cub Cadets and are very happy with them. We needed a mower with electric start so my Wife, if she needed to, could mow. She had not been able to pull start our Snappers for several years. When I found the Cub Cadet SC500EZ (21")... more

Best Push Mower I've Ever Used
Needed a push mower that was easy to start and use so senior citizens could do the mowing. The electric start works great and it will be easy to charge when I need to (it came charged so we will see how long it lasts before recharging).

The floating drive handle took a little getting used to, but I got used to it by the end of the first session. What I realized was that it acts as a shock absorber and that this mower doesn't beat up my arms like others I've used.

The front caster... more

Dream Mower
I love this mower! The SC500EZ starts on the first press of the button, and is easy to push, even in high grass. I'm a 63 year old grandma and this is the best mower I've ever owned.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Price, Durable
Cons: Mulching Cover Comes Off Too Easily If Bumped Against Something

Still Too Early To Tell
As far as cutting the grass, the mower does a good job and if you have a long straight row the self propel is great. I do have two concerns.

1. One of the swivel front wheels was improperly installed and would not turn. I fixed that myself.
2. Each time the engine starts, it puts out a puff of smoke for about 30 seconds then quits. I have no idea how long this engine will stay together. For what this mower cost, I expected better quality.
