Q: Is this a fixed wide-open throttle, or is the user able to adjust the throttle from idling (let it warm up a little) to fully open?
by Tom from Montana on April 03, 2016

A: Tom - the Cub Cadet 159cc engine on this mower has a fixed throttle setting. The throttle is not adjustable.

Mowers Direct Recommended

The Cub Cadet SC300HW is a great mower for anyone looking to maintain their small to medium sized yard and not break the bank doing so.

Equipped with a 159cc Cub Cadet 4-cycle engine, the SC300HW is easy to start and very fuel efficient. The variable speed self-propelled drive system powers the front wheels of this mower so you exert a lot less effort keeping your lawn nice and tidy.

The Cub Cadet SC300HW is set up as a 3-in-1 mower, so you'll have the ability to bag, mulch or... more

Another Great Self-propelled Cub Cadet!
I purchased the rear wheel drive model a few years back and has been a stellar performer on my 1 acre with a hill for a back year.. My parents mower was having issues so I had them borrow mine. They are in their 80s and keep active...the self propelled variable drive is perfect for them.

I purchased the front-wheel drive model for them.. delivery spot on and ease of assembly right out of the box. No need to borrow my mower. They love the front-wheel drive model and mowing their lawn... more

Drive System Broke First Year Used Spent $450
My cub cadet had a 170 cc and it was still under-powered. I bought a 190 cc Honda the best investment I ever made in a mower and it will never rust.

Cub Cadet Is A Brand I Trust
I was pleased with the overall experience. From getting information from customer service to delivery. Glad it's almost entirely assembled. Have always had same size wheels on front and back. Runs perfectly. I've had a Cub Cadet snow blower for over 20 years. Hope to get the same kind of durability and use out of the mower. I would recommend Cub Cadet to anyone looking for a well made, quality product.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable

Mower Model Sc300hw Review
Love the pacing speed and the ease of mowing. The only negative was the pacing cable bracket (which is plastic) that is hooked to the mower handle broke. I had to buy a clamp to keep it in place in order for the mower self pacing to be able to work. Can't believe that part is plastic, because it has a lot of stress on that part.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: See my revie

Good Product
The Cub Cadet self-propelled mower is a great product. The only issues I had was the yellow paint was scratched in two different spots on the mower.
Cons: Packaging

Dissapointed
Bought this mower because I could not afford a riding lawn mower. I'm seldom able to start on first pull. In fact, I have to pull up to 10 times to start it....the cord is absurdly tight.

Perfect For Me
I'm 71 and was looking for a mower that was easy to handle for my small yard. The mower arrived in a few days. It was easy to assemble and I was impressed at the quality. It started on the first pull. It did an amazing job mulching leaves.

It was easy to handle and did a beautiful job on the grass. I really appreciate the easy maneuverability. Easy to store and to clean & maintain at the end of the season. Awesome mower! Shipping was free.Price was great! Couldn't ask for more!
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality

New Cub
So far, I love this new mower. The self propelled bar is easily adjustable so you can go fast or (as I do) just enough to relieve pushing the weight of the mower. Took a little while to learn how to corner, but not a big problem. Starts on 2nd pull, unless I forget and try to start it on an upward slope.

Cons: The packing it arrived in was terrible. Come on Mowers Direct, enough reviewers have said this that you should have corrected the problem.The assembly instructions are poorly written... more

Nice Mower At A Good Price
My previous Cub Cadet lasted better than 15 years. When it finally died, I decided to stick with Cub Cadet. I filled it with gas and oil, gave it one pull, and it started right up. It cuts and mulches very nicely. So far, I'm very pleased with its performance. I'll get back to you in 15 years or so to tell you how it held up...

Everything Working Fine
The mower arrived promptly. After a little bit of assembly it started right up and is working great. Easy to use. Have used it quite a few times and no complaints.
