  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.

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

Does A Fine Job
First of all, it was crated very well. No damage at all. My brother and I were surprised when it started right up. Must of had fuel from factory in it.

Assembly was easy and had no surprises. It mows better than any thing I have ever used. Good mix of features on this mower.

I've mowed 4 times, no problems and don't expect any. I'm 5 hours in, ready for my first oil change.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Features, Quiet, Fast

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.

Great product on rolling .58 lot. No complaints. Jams a lot with heavy leaves but it wasn't built for that.

Great Mower, Great Price
I have mowed twice with the new mower and so far has been perfect. It has plenty of power and the steering is easy like power steering. It starts instantly and has a comfortable seat. I like the hydrostatic transmission and ability to mow in reverse.
Pros: Durable, Features, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging

"Had a great buying experience on line. No hassle, just filled out order on line. Didn't have to talk to anybody at Mowers Direct because I had already researched the Cub Cadet and knew what I wanted. It was back ordered, but was delivered to my driveway within two weeks. I would strongly recommend the truck with lift gate."

One horse power for every 2 inches of cut, mower has good power so you don't spend the whole day cutting grass. Made in the U.S. Expect it to last.

My New 2016 Cub Cadet
Just purchase new cub cadet 2016, I love it the way it handle and the way it cut the grass. I used to have a John Deere 145 and believe me the cub cadet is a better mower. I love the button which allows you to cut backwards without holding a button like the john Deere. Head lights are real nice also they come on whenever it get dark and have a great vision for seeing the grass you are cutting.

I recommend this mower to any one who is looking for a quality mower. It start on a dime just turn... more
