Q: Where can I buy a clip for holding the air filter housing in place?
by Bob Beal from Arkansas on July 03, 2016

A: Bob,

For replacement parts, you can contact Cub Cadet directly at 1-877-282-8684, or visit their website at cubcadet.com. A replacement housing cover which will include the clip can then be purchased directly.
by Jose, Product Expert

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.

I Love It.
I've used it to mow my entire yard twice. I've got 3.2 hours on it and I love it.
However, I've had flats on both front tires from very small punctures like stickers or sandburs. That aside, the worst disappointment is that I also blew out and had to replace, at a cost of $50, a back tire. It seems that the quality of the tires used is not very good.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Cheap Tires

First Time Buyer
i purchased my cub cadet in May 2015 on my friends recommendation. However after less than a year I'm having problems. The lever that engages the blades doesn't work all the time and it is making loud noise in slow mode but in high mode you can hear it a little the tires are very cheap.

I paid over $3000 dollars for this mower I don't even have 40 hrs on this mower and I am very disappointed and wish I had of bought a different mower.. For this kind of money and a so-called American... more

Cub Cadet 54" Zero Turn
I had never had a Cub Cadet before but had always heard good things about them. I live on over 9 acres with most of it lawn so sufficed to say I need a workhorse. I have used this mower for almost a year now and I am pleased with its performance. I have had to have the belt changed because of a stray limb getting up in to the belt area an slicing it but other than that no real concerns.
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable, High Quality

Quick Set-up
I received my Cub Cadet powered by a 24 hp Kohler engine on 4/5/2016. After un-crating my new mower it took about 15 minutes to set-up and start mowing. I can honestly say that I cut my time in half. I cut 3 acres of grass. It normally takes 3 1/2 to 4 hours to cut. I cut it in 2 hours the first time.

I was very happy with the customer service as I had a slight shipping delay. They handled the shipping problem for me and kept me informed along the way. They also removed the 50 dollar lift... more

Mowers Direct Is Great
I was very impressed with the website as soon as I hit the landing page. There was so much information about what ever mower you had in mind. It was easy to navigate and compare different models.

After checking their prices, I was sold. The order process was simple and my mower arrived in great shape and exactly when promised. I will recommend them to everyone I can !!

Great Machine Rzt L54 Fab
Received my RZT L54 FAB via lift gate service within the second week of ordering. No damage from freight service. Assembly went well at a little over two hours including a check on various nuts and bolts for possible assembly issues. Have now mowed my six acres three times and have shaved my mow time in half.

The only issues so far are due to a very rough ride on first mowing, I checked rear tire pressure's (recommended max @ 12 lbs.) and found them @ 28 lbs. Dropped 28 p.s.i down to 12... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

It's A Beast...
I bought this little tractor to maintain the immediate acre of land around my house. It's also being used to maintain about two or three additional acres of the 22 acres I live on. Considering the size of the job, the grass, weeds and God knows what else it's having to cut, it does a great job.

I can mow areas that are as tall as the tractor itself, I just have to do it twice to get it to look the way I want it to look. I mow once on the highest setting, then drop the setting two notches... more

"I did not care for the way this tractor was shipped. I was expecting it to be on something where it could be easily driven off the shipping container. Based on the shipping weight being 700 pounds you understand right away you are not going to throw this thing over your shoulder and carry it into the garage. I specified lift gate shipping, and the vendor (SAIA Motor Freight) was great. The driver brought it to the exact spot where I wanted it dropped, then positioned it exactly where I wanted it with his dolly. The problem was, the tractor was on the pallet in such a way that it could not be driven off after removing restraining boards etc. This little tractor was positioned where the only way it was coming off was by being lifted. I had to hire three of my neighbors ranch hands to come over and help me lift the tractor off the pallet. After that, all was well. The limited assembly you have to do was easy and quite fun to do. Make sure to check the tire pressure before you put it in service the first time. For some reason they were aired up way beyond the suggested maximum pressures. Also, keep an eye on your hour meter...that first five hours goes by quickly and you don't want to be late on your first oil change. That's when you'll be cussing the engineers that designed the side mount oil filter."

Poorly Made
Used it the first day and it was great. Stored it in our garage. 11 days later we needed to mow again and White smoke EVERYWHERE the engine block blew. Oil poring our all over our new garage flooring.

Trying to call someone for help an getting referred to 4 different places who say they cant help. Seriously this is a joke. The engine also shows we used it for 40.3 hours? We used it for less than 2....

Drive Belt Comes Off.
Purchased new this fall and with only fourteen hours on the mower the belt slips and comes off. My old Troy Built Mustang gave me a better cut, and after years of cutting it may have used two belts up.

One other thing I've noticed, the engagement switch for the blades has to be cycled on and off sometimes before it works. I'm not happy at all with this mower. My yard is less than one acre, should be a breeze for a 3,000 dollar mower.

Love It
Nice machine. The purchase and delivery went smooth. Putting it together was simple only thing missing was oil drain hose. I have not used it to much but have cut a couple acres of old dead grass.

It is much faster and easier that our 46 inch cub cadet lawn tractor which in itself was nearly indestructible. Would not have anything but a Cub Cadet.
