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

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

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

Drive Belt Chronically Slips Off Pulley
Owned mower for 6 or 7 years. When new, either drive belt or blade drive belt would come off pulley. A design flaw. A service directive fix was added to maintenance service. The fix was adding a deck bolt that kept the belt from slipping off the pulley. The last 2 yrs I have had the mower picked up and serviced for the drive belt slipping off the pulley (twice last yr and twice so far this year). I can't find any instructions or video on how to replace belts for this mower. Would be great to... more

Great Mower, Bad Blades
Bought mower used with very few hours on it to use to get into customers fenced-in back yards. Used on my back yard and grass was being ripped. Ordered Oregon G3 Mulching blades and now it cuts way better. It also has plenty of power and is heavy, but overall it is a great mower.

My Cub Cadet Wide Area Mower
I purchased this mower to start a small lawn care company. I couldn't be happier with the power and cut of this machine. I read a lot of reviews about how bad the OEM blades were but mine seem to do just fine. Cant wait until things really get going to see how it holds up.

"I originally purchased this my cub cadet mower from the home depot. However their supplier double booked the BOL and it was never shipped. They refused to send me the mower until I purchased another no way was that going to happen. "Fool me once". Needless to say Mowers Direct got it right the first time, no hassle and fast shipping.

Drive/blade Belts Come Off All The Tme
There is definitely a design flaw with this mower. I have had this in for repair 3. Times in the last 3 mos. for the same reason...EITHER THE DRIVE BELT OR BLADE BELT has come off. The drive BELT has just come off again(4th time now). In 3 mos. unfortunately I do not have a means to deliver it to the dealer.

So I pay pickup and delivery charges plus cost to repair and am without a mower for 2-3 weeks. Mower is too difficult for me to tackle trying to repair myself and Cub Cadet has no... more

Alternative Purchase Option
As others did, I researched for hours and decided the Cub Cadet 760 ES was the right mower for me. I live in NH and there are still local hardware stores and small engine retail shops. I purchased this mower model at a local retailer. Price was $1300 and there was no delivery fee.

The mower came fully assembled and was delivered to my front door. No trucking/delivery costs, no unloading from the delivery truck, no uncrating, no pallet and packing material left over, no assembly.

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.

Halved My Mowing Time
First, this mower is not for everyone. Until you get accustomed to it, it'll beat you up. It's heavy and you have to get used to the blade and drive handles. But once you get through that, you'll enjoy the mower.

I've had this mower for 3 years now. I have the non-electric start version. I've only changed the oil once and it came out clean. Never lost oil during the previous two years. Easy maintenance? Check.

This mower is 50% wider than the average push mower. Also, being... more

This Is A Beast
Have this one now for 5 years and besides changing the oil and air filter ones nothing needed. From a 1 hr mowing job with a regular mower it cut back my mow time to 30 min. Use it all the time at speed 4. Machine is a little big so if you have a playground to move around it takes a little force to move. Never reverse or other gears other than 4. My mulching stopper piece of plastic broke and the gear level seems to get stuck behind my playground. A definite buy thumbs up. People that have... more

A Beast Of A Mower - Love It
I bought this new 2 weeks ago and have used it twice on my 0.4 acre yard. I used to mow this with a 21" Snapper and then graduated to a 4WD Husquarvana when the Snapper died after many years of service. Both would leave clumps of grass that I had to re-mow. I returned the Husquarvana because I got so irritated with the clumps it would leave. Both of these would take me 1 hour and 50 minutes to mow my yard plus a few more minutes to clear clumps.

Drive Belt Issues
I had a problem with the drive belt coming off whenever torque was not applied to the belt. I found that adjusting the belt tensioner cable to a tighter mode corrected that issue. The belt no longer comes off while mowing. I use this mower commercially and have over 200 hrs on this machine. No other issues during this time

Bought one of these, made 3 passes and the drive belt came off. Local Cub Cadet dealer came out and fixed it. After they left -- resumed mowing and 1/2 a yard later, drive belt came off again.

Local dealer brought out a new mower and took the 1st one back. Could not ask for more. Except for the fact that on 2nd use, the drive belt came off this mower too.

I have been extremely frustrated with the drive belt on this mower. I used the mower twice, it threw the belt off four times!

More Than I Expected....
I bought this mower going on 3 years ago.... I use it on 5 commercial accounts, my yard and two more residentials. It has treated me well. Only problems have been when I hit a water meter cover, I knocked the blades out of sync and broke the belt. I replaced it and it has been fine since. This has been my workhorse mower. I would get another.

Great Mower For Large, Wooded Lot
Ordered online and selected regular, lift gate shipping. It arrived 2 days later (although I do live in Illinois). Well crated for shipping. Arrived without a scratch. Only assembly was flipping up the handle and hooking up the battery.

I have a 1/2 acre lot with native trees, and only about 1/4 is actually flat. I replaced a standard tractor mower with this one. After a few cuts, I have concluded this is what I wished I'd had all along. With the maneuverability, it is much quicker around... more

The Mower I Have Been Looking For
Purchased this mower in hopes that I wouldn't have to purchase another anytime soon. It was my experience that most mowers have about a 5-year life expectancy and then you are shopping again. I live at 8000 ft. and my grass is pretty thick in the Spring. Most mowers could only cut a half a swath before overworking the engine causing it to stop. This mower does not have such a problem. It cuts through the highest grass and never acts stressed at all. I appreciate the water clean-up feature... more

Mower: Very happy with my purchases. I have used the mower half dozen times or so and love it. 4th gear is a little to speedy for my yard because I have to navigate lots of landscaping and turn a lot (trees, flower beds, side walks, and curbs). When in 3rd or 4th gear it's important to simply ease into full speed or else the mower will jump causing the front wheels to pop up leaving an un-even cut. Just ease into. 1st and 2nd gear doesn't have this problem because the mower goes much... more

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!).

Powerful, But Problems
The Cub Cadet mower works great, but service is basically nonexistent. The battery often is undercharged, even right out of the box, and I have had to jump start it several times the plastic grass exhaust shield broke and I don't know how to fix it. I don't know who to talk to at MowersDirect or Cub Cadet who can assist, so I've jury-rigged solutions.

Transmission Drive Belt
Belt not designed properly for tension. Jumped off after 12 minutes of use. You Tube information from a landscaper that had one of these was most helpful. No instructions on how to replace the belt or buy a new one. I was able to get it back on myself. Book says, must take to an authorized dealer for new one. Luckily I figured it out and now operate the mower very slowly and in low gears so the belt does not jump off of the pulleys.

Be Very Careful Before Purchasing
We've had the 760 ES since late summer 2013, so about 2 full mowing seasons. It has a number of issues that have surfaced since we initially bought it.

First, the good news is the engine seems to start and run quite easily and the oil has been clean for all four changes.

The not-so-good:

1. Cut quality was never great, but it has deteriorated over time. I believe the blades are spinning far too slowly - perhaps the engine gov is slipping (have tried a few different blades that... more

Awesome!
I love this mower! I have been using this mower for my own lawn, as well as about 6 other mid to large-sized lawns for about 2 months now. I often find myself looking for excuses to go out and cut. Once you get a feel for how it handles, it is a true pleasure to operate.

Even through our recent rainy season, I haven't encountered a job that this mower couldn't handle. It gives a professional-looking cut every time. I can't wait until I can order the striping kit to take it to the next... 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.

So Far, So Good.
I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing online and also with the reported drive belt problems on this model. I've owned it a month and no problems with the purchase/delivery or the mower.

It is a beast though, and might be a little heavy for some. It will be a few years before I'm able to let my son mow the yard with this, just because of the weight and muscle needed to maneuver in tight turns.

I'm very pleased with the machine. There is some clumping of grass I would like to rectify,... more

Crating was terrible, I was surprised there was no damage. Was easy to set up. It started up instantly.Reverse too fast. Two forward speeds would require running. The lowest speed is great for an old guy (me). I have yet to actually cut and mulch, so maybe a follow up comment later. I thought a bag was included.

Glen,
Glen,

We apologize for the crating. The Cub Cadet crating can get pretty bad in shipping from time to time. We are happy to hear there was no damage and you are happy with the machine. Unfortunately the bags for these units are not included with the mower. Since these are a little more intricate of setup and deck style, the bags are not as cut and dry as it would be on a standard walk behind. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Design And Quality Issues / Poor Service Support
Ordered this 33" wide walk behind unit due to terrain demands and safety and based on favorable reviews. When it arrived I was surprised that the handle height is not adjustable. If you're over 6' tall, be ready to stay hunched over when you use this mower.

Battery/charging system and gear shift mechanism failed within four weeks. I've now waited three weeks during the peak season cutting for an 'out of stock' Cub Cadet service part. To be out of stock in early May suggests that... more

New Cub Cadet 33" Walk Behind
I've only had this machine for about a month so I can't speak for durability, although it seems sturdy and well built. It definitely has more than enough power. Will go through tall dense grass without any hesitation. Electric start is great, fires right up.

Castor wheels are heavy duty and work well. Machine is probably not for a smaller person as it is pretty heavy. I have a hilly 1/2 acre with many obstacles so a tractor wasn't working well for me and my 22" toro was just too... more

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.

I have owned many mowers in my past years and this one puts the icing on the cake. It's easy to turn and use. I even helped out my neighbor because his grass was too high and he own a 20 inch cut mower. This mower doesn't leave clumps of grass if the grass is 8 inches in height. my wife has been very happy by the way the grass looks once it's cut.

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.

Good Value For The Money
Bought this mower after watching my neighbor put many hours on his in commercial service without any problems. Researched many mowers and this one had consistently good reviews. I've only used mine twice but really like it. Lots power even just above idle. Good spread of speed between the 4 forward speeds. Smooth cutting even going fast in high grass at the top deck height. Great for my 1.1 acre lawn.

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

I bought this hoping to reduce my mowing time. It doen't gouge the grass like riders do and it is VERY easy to handle (once you get use to it).

It did indeed reduced my mowing time but I find my neighbors asking for me to help so I still mow a lot but it is SO EASY I don't mind.

I'm putting gator blades on it as they do a better recycling job over the mfg blades.

This thing is a beast. Assembly was a snap, including swapping the blades for Gator Blades (I mulch). More than enough power to get through the tall, wet stuff with ease. In fourth gear, your walking briskly - exactly what I wanted.

This mower is very well built and made to last. It is a lot heavier than I anticipated for a mower in this price range. I wouldn't recommend it to someone with a smaller frame due to the amount of effort needed to turn and maneuver.

I got this mower to handle our 3/4 acre, random shaped lot, which has a couple of challenging hills. I chose the walk behind over a zero turn because I was worried the hills might be too much for a rider. From the quick, easy delivery to getting it set up out of the crate, everything was straightforward. Even with reading the instructions I was mowing within 1/2 hour of receiving it.

Only replace one cable and 2 batteries. Only thing problem I having is to put mulching cover in. It kept falling out. Now I need to replace it as it torn down..

My grass grows faster than my neighbors. I am mowing almost every week but notice I get lumps of grass everywhere as I have raised to limit of height it has..
