Jose, Who makes the engine on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ? Lee Lohman
Lee R. Lohman 
from Virginia 
July 05, 2016
Answer
Lee,

The engines on these units will be Cub Cadet branded MTD engines.

Does the Cub Cadet have a trigger handle to control speed as your review states? I thought the whole top part of the handle rotated to control speed. Also, do you know how large the gas tank is? Thanks
Dave 
from Ohio 
May 14, 2016
Answer
Dave - the Cub Cadet SC500EZ uses the Cub Cadet Premium Drive Control system. The premium drive control is located on the upper handle and is used to engage the drive. Pushing the control forward will engage the drive. The farther the control is pushed forward, the faster the mower will propel. Once pressure is released from the control it will return to the neutral position and the drive will be disengaged. The gas tank holds 24 fluid ounces of gasoline, so about 1/5 of a gallon.
+
Is the height of the handle adjustable? I am 6'2" and if the handle is too low and I have to bend over to push it hurts my back.
Rick 
from Kentucky 
April 23, 2016
Answer
Rick - the actual height of the handle on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ mower is not adjustable. However, you can make a small adjustment to the PITCH of the handle (the angle at which the handle comes off the mower), which would make a difference in how high or low the handle is off the ground. For someone your height, you'd want to set the pitch of the handle to the highest position.
+
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?
Tom 
from Montana 
April 03, 2016
Answer
Tom - the Cub Cadet 159cc engine on this mower has a fixed throttle setting. The throttle is not adjustable.
+
HOW DO YOU ADJUST CUTTING HEIGHT ...Wheel height or deck adjustment. I don't see any way to adjust rear wheel height.
Eb Lane 
from Arkansas 
March 26, 2016
Answer
Eb - the cutting height of two front swivel wheels is adjusted on each wheel individually. There is a lever just below the left rear wheel that is used to adjust cutting height for both rear wheels together
+
Does the cub cadet sc500ez locking system for front wheels have to be done manually, and if so how difficult is that, or an it be done with the switch of a handle
Rita 
from Missouri 
March 24, 2016
Answer
Rita - the front swivel wheels are locked manually using a lock pin on each wheel. It's a pretty simple process. There is no mechanism for locking the front swivel wheels on the handle.
+
Does the mower have a blade disconnect or blade override? Does the handle fold? Thanks
Dennis 
from North Carolina 
July 25, 2015
Answer
Dennis - the Cub Cadet SC500EZ does not have a blade override system. And the handle does not fold over either.
+
Does this have a recoil start for backup
Derek 
from Wisconsin 
June 27, 2015
Answer
Derek - yes, the Cub Cadet SC500EZ does have a recoil starter in addition to the electric start
+
Out of the box, does the battery need to be charged for 12 hours?
Jim 
from Washington 
August 30, 2014
Answer
Jim - yes, you would need to charge the on-board battery on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ before you would be able to use the electric start feature on the mower. The battery does not come fully charged as it's shipped to us from Cub Cadet.
+
Cub Cadet SC 500 EZ (21 Inch.) : - Can the front swivel wheels be locked in straight forward? - Is there an extra cost for right hand side dischgarge? Thank you. Walter Debusschere
Walter Debusschere 
from Michigan 
July 31, 2014
Answer
Walter - yes, the front caster wheels can be locked in a straight ahead position by simply re-positioning the lock pin on each caster wheel. The mower comes with the side discharge chute cover.
+
Does the battery need periodic charging or does the engine have a charging system to keep it charged? Is this a sealed battery or does it require periodic maitenance (distilled water)?
Ken 
from Idaho 
May 10, 2014
Answer
Ken - the battery on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ requires periodic charging with a 12 volt charger that comes with the mower. The battery is a sealed 12 volt battery.
+

Carol
