Q: Can the forward speed be changed without stopping, i.e. is it like a snow blower transmission where you select the speed and stop to change speed?
by John P from Minnesota on May 10, 2016

A: John - no, you cannot change speeds "on the fly". You must release the drive control lever (mounted on the left handle) before you change the speed of the mower up or down. Failing to do this could cause damage to the transmission of the mower.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the maximum forward speed?
by Mike G from Michigan on April 17, 2016

A: Mike - the max forward speed of the Cub Cadet CC760ES mower is approximately 4 mph.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Can you use attachments that allow you to stand on it i think it called a sculy
by Kenneth from Virginia on April 01, 2016

A: Kenneth - the Cub Cadet CC760ES is not compatible for use with a sulkie.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Jose,
How do you adjust the height of the blades? And it does have two blades, right? One lever or multiple levers?

by Carmen Cicalese from New Jersey on May 10, 2015

A: Carmen - there is a lever on the left side of the mower just in front of the left rear tire that you slide forward and back to adjust the cutting height of the mower deck. If you look closely at the image of this mower, you can see this lever just to the left side of the engine. And yes, this model has a twin blade mower deck.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What's the minimum width my fence gate can be to fit the mower through?
by Michael from New Jersey on April 09, 2015

A: Michael - the Cub Cadet CC760ES mower measures 36" wide with the side discharge chute cover in the "up" position, and 48" wide with the side discharge cover in the "down" position.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is the handle on this unit adjustable at all for varying heights of an operator?
by Dave S. from Illinois on July 15, 2014

A: Dave - the handle height on the Cub Cadet CC760ES mower is adjustable. The upper handle is secured to two support bars that can be adjusted to raise or lower the handle height. Full instructions on how to adjust the handle height can be found on page 21 of the owners manual (which you can view in the "specs" tab on our web page).
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: How does it turn. physically or with motor
by Roger from Georgia on April 25, 2014

A: Roger - the Cub Cadet CC760ES mower does not have any type of steering assist system. The front swivel wheels will help turn and maneuver this mower more easily, but it will still be the operator who is supplying the movement to turn the mower.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What company makes the engine on this mower? You give the cc's what is the horse power rating on this engine?
by George Sluder from North Carolina on July 05, 2013

A: George - Cub Cadet still builds their own engines in their own factory. It's a Cub Cadet brand engine. There is no true conversion from cc's to HP, but a 420cc engine would be roughly equal to 12.5 HP.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this mower have mulching capability?
by Larry Riens from Nebraska on May 23, 2013

A: This mower does come with the ability to mulch and side discharge out of the box. There will be a baffle which comes with the mower. The bagger would be additional for this mower.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Jose,

Looking at the Cub Cadet electric start walk behind model CC 760 ES.


by Neil Hibler from Massachusetts on May 19, 2013

A: Neil - the Cub Cadet CC760ES does NOT have a recoil starter on the engine. This mower only has an electric start option.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Can I connect a sulky to this mower??
by Kareem from New Jersey on May 09, 2013

A: Kareem - sorry, but this mower cannot be used with a sulky attachment.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Can a sulky/velke be used with this mower...adequately. I weigh about 250lbs. Personal lawn use only.
by Dean from Kentucky on April 21, 2013

A: Dean - the Cub Cadet wide area walk mowers are NOT set-up to be used with a sulky.

The Cub Cadet CC 760 ES wide area mower is one of the most popular models that Cub Cadet produces, and it's easy to see why once you use one. This mower combines lots of power and top-end performance.

You may notice I have listed this unit ahead of the Ariens WAW34 but the Cub Cadet is actually a lower price. This is actually another aspect I considered when putting the particular item ahead of the Ariens. When you look at the cost of this unit and the overall quality and put the two... more

With A Little Tlc, It's Great!
Hello all,

If you're reading this, you may be like me before I decided to pull all the stops and chose to purchase the 760 ES. I read dozens and dozens of reviews everything on this site and countless others. I watched video after video to ensure I was making the right decision both because I'd be spending over $1000 of my hard earned cash and because this was the first mower purchase since buying my 21" craftsman push mower about 10 years ago (nothing will kill that thing!).

Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Features, Power To Spare
Cons: Quality Of Oem Blades

Problems From The Start
The battery is always dead only have 12 hours on it and now it won't start. I believe the transmission will not go into neutral. 1200.00 down the drain.

Don't know what to do to fix the problem but don't have money to take it to the shop so I am using my old john deer push mower that starts right up after 8 years. Anyone with any info on how to fix the neutral problem would be great.

Awful...that's All
The review are correct regarding the belts coming off. If you keep it tweaked you can control that a little better. I've owned mine for 1 year and it has 133 hours on it. In that time, it's been in the shop 6 times. The motor is good and dependable with plenty of power, however, the good stops there.

The belt, drive, blade assembly is inferior and takes a lot of maintenance. I'm on my 3rd set of belts in 1 year. In the last 2 months since my warranty ran out, I've spent $246 on... more

Yes, This One!
If you still want the versatility of a walk behind or perhaps have to access a fenced in area with steep hills, this is a great mower.

With the discharge up it easily fits through a 45" gate opening and it climbs hills with ease. The mulching works so well it leaves little to no clumps, even with 8" long wet grass. Exactly what we were looking for.

Great Mower - Professional Cut - Find A Servicer To Fix Cables
Just turned 420 hours - very good quality cut will handle any lawn. Easy to start and use with some muscle on turns. Bad news is cables break ( 4 times in 5 seasons ) also, 3 batteries replaced so remove battery into basement during winter. Too big for my SUV so find someone to come to you for maintenance.

"still Happy And Running Great !"
I said I would give updates on occasion, and here is one.

First off, I did plenty of research to begin with before I made the purchase back in march (3-24-15) of this year. If you do not like the truth about this particular machine, then it's obvious you should seek another type of mower!" This machine is just what I wanted and it is just what i bought.

Here is honestly my only complaint. "the handles that you must press down to engage both transmission and the blades are made... more
Pros: Only Complaint Is The Engagement Grips Get Wet From Moisture
Cons: Not For Anyone Who Expects This Machine Is A Light Weight

Purchased this mower approximately 3 weeks ago and since that first moment of cutting the first few blades of grass-I fell in love! I've spent approximately 13 hrs a week rushing trying to cut my yards, now I spend a total of 5hours. Truthfully, I can get them done faster but now I enjoy cutting the yards and with all this extra time.. I spend more time working in certain designs. I also purchased the bag and I give that a 4/5 rating due to the fact that it's thought zippering and u zippering... more

Great In All Aspects But One!
This is a very powerful mower. It has no problem cutting thru deep grass and weeds. The electric start is very nice, not an option I thought I would care about on a walk behind mower, but now I am spoiled. Going up hills is a breeze. My issue with this mower is the self-propelled speed control. It is very inconvenient to be always taking your hand off the drive control to change the speed/gear.

If you are in 3rd or 4th speed this mower is very difficult to turn, if fact almost impossible if... more

Bad Luck?
I bought it, was happy to receive it. Put it together got it running. Was happy with it, until it broke 1.5hours of use... It's non returnable after you gas it up. Has a manufacturer warranty, been in the shop for over a week...

Solid Piece Of Equipment
Needed to upgrade my mower based on a larger lawn and a friend suggested the Cub Cadet. I was a bit hesitant based on some reviews that noted some of the bands were not aligned / staying in place, but ultimately went with it.

Assembly was fairly easy, although there are a few spots where things needed to be tightened / loosened that were very difficult to get you hands and tools into, which was a bit frustrating.

Once ready to go, startup was easy, and has been ever since. This machine... more

Cub Cadet 33" Review
I have a 0.6 Acre Lot with walkout. idling mower just seemed too big for lot and to store. Standard 21" was taking me about 1.5 hrs. Saw this and decided it would be a good fit. Definitely bulky to use and cumbersome around landscaping, but so would a rider. Mower does a wheelie when drive engaged in 3rd or 4th gear.

The drive belt tends to slip. I took it in after first use and was told everything is within specs. Belt still slips just a bit when drive engaged and going up walkout... more
