  3 Questions
Q: What is the width with the mulch kit installed? My she'd can accommodate up to 47".
by Bob from Pennsylvania on July 01, 2016

A: The mulch kit is flat so if you remove it it will measure about 46" if you raise the chute.

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: does this model have power steering? my husband has had a stroke & has difficulty turing the wheel on our cub cadet that we have now

by Cindy from Missouri on May 14, 2016

A: Cindy - sorry, but none of the riding mowers that we sell are equipped with power steering.
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.

Great Company Great Mower
First I have to comment about Mowers Direct. This is the 2nd product I have bought from them, the first being a Toro Recycler self propelled mower. I have been very pleased with this company and the recommendations they have made. Their prices are very competitive with other stores.

Now for my Cub Cadet. I mow 2 and 1/2 acres of very hilly ground. My first concern was having a mower that was stable on hills and did not rise up as a previous mower did. I also wanted plenty of power to... more

Ok- But Expected Better
My new LX42 Cub cadet is OK but I had hoped/expected it to perform better. It gives an uneven cut and might need additional adjusting. I paid for the lift gate delivery and am glad I did as the mover is very heavy and hard to move from pallet. Delivery driver was great and helpful.

My yard has a lot of tree roots and the ride is very bumpy and I was hoping it would have had better suspension. I must have read review wrong as I thought the mover cut in reverse but it stalls out every time.... more

"The person who first arranges the delivery needs a major attitude adjustment. Does not deal well with people. In complete contrast to how helpful and pleasant the actual delivery driver was."

Quiet And Powerful!
This mower replaced a Craftsman 16 hp. mower. What a difference! Although this new cub cadet has plenty of power, it has a softer noise level. I put a mulch plug on with gator blades, and it mulches grass great, even if it's wet and longer. Love the LED headlights, and the armrests. Sleek and modern looking too. Steering is very easy to steer. Looked at John Deere, but this had better features. Glad I went with the Cub Cadet!

Cub Cadet Xt2
This is the mower, it can cut some really deep grass and don't bog down at all. Steering is great, it starts up perfect every time. It's comfortable. You cannot ask for a better mower than this. So far, so good.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, This Mother Can Mow Some Grass

Time Saver
Unit arrived on a damaged pallet - fortunately no apparent damage to the tractor. Now having run it for over 10 hours - without issue - it seems to be fine.

Speed and width (42") reduced weekly mowing time from about 3 hours to less than 1 hour. Consistent cuts. Looks very good - well groomed.

Don't cut along the hillside - take the hill head on and don't try anything more than about 10 degrees (if you want the transmission to last, that is). Use reverse with care. Might be good to... more

Lx42-the Best
I've had the Cub Cadet LX42 for about (3) months now and I couldn't ask for a more reliable riding mower. I checked all the riding mowers online for almost a year, and nothing could match the CC LX42. There's nothing on this mower that I dislike or would like to have changed.
The Kohler 7000 engine is a little loud, but what riding mower isn't.

It starts right away. I especially like going in reverse or forward without any shifting. The ride is fairly smooth and the grass is cut even.... more

Awesome
I decided to go back to a regular lawn tractor after 5 years of a zero turn. Best decision I have made in years. The Cube Cadet is an amazing machine. Powerful agile and much better than the zero turn around the home.

I looked at several other machines but for the money it was a no-brainer. Just look at the John Deer, Husqvarna, Craftsman and Toro's they couldn't compare to the value of the Cub Cadet. I will buy it again.

Great Tractor
Had a craftsman tractor for almost 9 years. It finally gave out, and after looking around for a good tractor, I settled on the cub cadet. What a difference in power, and speed. The item came fully protected on 2 pallets, and a wood frame built around it. I will suggest spending the 50.00 for the lift gate service, this tractor weighs almost 600 pounds, it would have been impossible to get it off the truck without the lift gate.
Great value, fast delivery, actually quick and painless... more

Great Product Not So Good Service From Mower's Direct.
The product itself is good. Of course there are nicks and downfalls when it comes to electronics or devices as anything else. Mine came with two problems. After un-packaging the XT2 42, I put gas in it and drove it. When I came to a stop, I noticed my cub rolling forward in neutral (A.K.A Hydro Creep). I parked it and observed it and also noticed the front right wheel toe off a bit. Of course these issues can arise with any machine from all quality. My biggest problem was not with the machine,... more

Nice
Unboxed on freight truck, driver very helpful in getting it off the truck, put gas in and turned the key - it is nice. Pretty quiet running, and reverse safety works great.

Bit of a pain, but I have a 6-year-old and that's what's important. Can't speak to durability yet, but seems well built, so I'm expecting many years of reliable use. No problems cutting through anything I've thrown at it.
