  4 Questions
Q: Is this mower assembled and ready to start.
by Howard from Alabama on May 14, 2016

A: Howard - all of the riding mowers we sell are shipped in the original factory crating, and would require some degree of minor set-up before you could use it.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the steering tilt?
by Daniel from Minnesota on April 28, 2016

A: Daniel - the steering column is tilted all the way back for shipping. Once the mower is un-crated, you can set the steering column to one of two positions. However, once you select a position, the steering column is secured in place with two bolts, so it will not tilt or move after the initial set-up without removing these two bolts.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have a side hill that is about 10-15 degrees. Would this mower be able to handle mowing it down the sideslope or up and down the hill? The hill is a smaller part of my acre property but want to make sure to get a mower that can handle that hill. Was not sure if the steering wheel compared to the bars made a difference in the control?

Thanks for any input in advance!

by Brandon from Georgia on April 17, 2016

A: Brandon - yes, the steering wheel style zero turn mowers are much more effective for mowing hills and inclines since the front wheels are on a true steering mechanism and don't swivel independently like they would on a lap bar style zero turn. Mowing a hillside or slope is one of the main reasons for choosing a steering wheel style zero turn mower. A slope of 10 to 15 degree's is well within the operating specs for a steering wheel style zero turn. I think one of these would be ideal for what you are describing.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this mower have the Bluetooth connect feature?
by Larry Hudson from West Virginia on May 08, 2015

A: Larry - yes, the Cub Cadet 17ARCBDA010 (RZT S54 FAB) does have the Cub Connect Bluetooth system

I Love This Thing!
No more half day sweat fests mowing the lawn. I can now do my lawn in 20 minutes or less. This thing flies. My only wish is that I had a bigger lawn and grass that grew twice as fast! Thanks for a quality product. My neighbor wants one now.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Packaging, Expensive, Took Me 3 Days To Unbox It

2 Weeks Old And Will Not Go Forward Or Backward
This sounded like a good Mower, that is all the reviews - but when I contacted Mowers Direct they pushed me off to contact the Cub Cadet website and find a dealer in area to take it to for repairs. REALLY its only 2 weeks old. They DID NOT STAND BEHIND THE PRODUCT. They DID NOT OFFER ANY SUGGESTION TO WHY IT WAS NOT GOING FORWARD OR BACKWARDS?

I charged it on my American Express C/C and it has not been paid as yet by us. I feel the mower should be returned as it is a LEMON and we shouldn't... more

Seems Like A Decent Mower, Probably Would Just Go W Regular Zero
Nice mower but at $500 more for the steering wheel it really isn't worth it. I have never used a zero turn so I wanted what I felt more familiar with, ie the steering wheel. It's pretty easy to operate but the steering wheel moves up and down to easily which makes it kind of uncomfortable. The turns are real nice and it gives a decent cut. It's not as fast as I hoped. Also the shipping wasn't great. I paid $50 extra for the elevator loader, which is a necessity.

Problem is the... more

Paid $4200.00 (to much). Did not know of mowers direct at the time. Harsh ride steering wheel adjustment keeps coming loose safety switch in seat shut deck off with slightest bump.

Good Product
So far I have about 3 or 4 hours on this mower. It performed flawlessly. I had hand surgery the day after it arrived. I have been able to operate the mower with one hand very easily.

This is the main reason I purchased the Cub Cadet with a steering wheel instead of Dual levers. I would suggest if the steering wheel was slightly larger and had an old fashioned knob on it, the operation would be even easier. It would be simple to have a drink while mowing.

I have been mowing grass for over 60 years now. I purchased the RTZ 54s---mainly because it can move over the ground at a faster speed. It cut the mowing time almost in half, and did a smoother job than any mower I have ever owned. I live in the country with 2 acres of rolling lawn. One edge has a very steep bank. This Cub actually sticks better than two other mowers I own. For me, this a keeper at a good price.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Have Steering Post Movable To Ease Getting Off Machine

Very Satisfied.
Mower arrived before scheduled delivery date. Easy assembly - hardest part was getting it out of the packing crate. Zero turn works as advertised, friends don't believe I have a zero turn with a steering wheel. Mowing just got a lot easier!

Cub Cadet Rzt S54 Fab
The Cub Cadet lawn mower this built extremely well and performs flawlessly. It truly is amazing on how much grass is thrown from the shoot when mowing. This is the first zero turn mower I've ever owned and I am impressed on how little I need to weed whack after mowing. It is capable of turning very tight corners around the poles and trees I have in my yard.

I guess if I'd have to find any faults I would have to say it's a little underpowered. The only time I notice it is when the... more
