Q: Where can I buy a clip for holding the air filter housing in place?
by Bob Beal from Arkansas on July 03, 2016

A: Bob,

For replacement parts, you can contact Cub Cadet directly at 1-877-282-8684, or visit their website at cubcadet.com. A replacement housing cover which will include the clip can then be purchased directly.

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.

It's Great!!
This functions much better than I thought it would. Wide cut looks great. I bought a lot of accessories (light kit, hitch kit, engine bar, light kit, etc...) The only thing that I would say is that the light kit should be easier to install. You have to disassemble a lot of parts and drill holes through the thick deck plate. it shoots the grass out at least 8-10 feet. Excellent suction grabs some previous clippings that have turned brown.

The only problem I'm having is gas. It sucks... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store
Cons: Needs Hitch Plate And Engine Guard, Uses A Lot Of Gas

Good Mower
It is a great mower, but I would not have bought it if I knew the blades stopped every time you went into reverse.

Cut My Mowing Time In Half!
Great mower for the price. Cut my time in half. Easy to assemble took more time to uncrate and get off skid then to assemble. Would highly recommend this mower to someone looking for a zero turn!!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: hard to get out of crate

Great Mower
Very nice mower. However if you have a hilly yard or a steep bank for a ditch or creek the tires are terrible. I changed my tires out to an aggressive tire and it seemed to fix my problem of not being able to keep it straight as I went down the creek bank. I have about 2 1/2 acres and I burn about half a tank of fuel on it. I read one review on here before I bought it about how much of a gas hog it is but mine does very well on fuel. Just run it at a lower throttle and it's fine. Shipping... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Price
Cons: Crappy tires

Zero Turn Is The Only Way To Go
This is probably more of a review of ZT, in general, rather than this particular model. This is my first ZT, having always had a tractor style riding mower up to now, primarily due to the additional ZT cost. All the testimonies I've read regarding the substantial improvement in mowing efficiency I can now verify as being true. Not only has it cut mowing time at least in half, but it is also practically effortless. I'm never going back to riding tractor mowers.

This mower has more than... more

What A Beast, Cuts Great
I ordered this when it was on back order and got it in less than a week. I have to agree with all the other reviews that mentioned the hardest part about getting the mower going was getting it off the pallet. I have tons of tools and woodworking equipment so I got it of in about 40 minutes. The mower started right up, runs like a champ and love this mower. I mow several lawns in the neighborhood and this cut four different lawns in less time, better cut, and fun. I expected the blades to be... more

Love It!!
I have had it for a couple months now and mowed my lawn many times. It runs and works excellent. Cut my mowing time way down. I recommend this product.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Doesn't handle hills as well as I'd hoped.

Good Mower
First of all I'm not a hobby mower. I bought it to get the job done. It does a great! Most of my mowing is hill side and crap. Mower showed up in perfect condition. Two things I read reviews on that are not true. You can back up all day with the blades on. There's a selector on the key switch that lets you. Lets some air out of tires!. They are brick hard for shipping. It will ride great. Plus there are bolt slots on the side of the seat for arm rests. One bad is its a gas pig. But big power... more

Like It So Far
Only mowed about four times with it so far but I do really like the zero turn model. My only complaint so far would be reverse is way too slow. Maybe they are all like that, this is my first zero turn but my tractor models always had good reverse speed.

Great Machine Rzt L54 Fab
Received my RZT L54 FAB via lift gate service within the second week of ordering. No damage from freight service. Assembly went well at a little over two hours including a check on various nuts and bolts for possible assembly issues. Have now mowed my six acres three times and have shaved my mow time in half.

The only issues so far are due to a very rough ride on first mowing, I checked rear tire pressure's (recommended max @ 12 lbs.) and found them @ 28 lbs. Dropped 28 p.s.i down to 12... more

Right Out The Box
I bought this Cub Cadet riding mower back in May. It arrived strongly crated. Runs great however, it had a missing cap from one of the front casters and after multiple phone calls, I can't seem to get mowers direct to send me the part.

I also purchased a pressure washer and a mower lift. I've had issues with the pressure washer right out of the box as well. The contact to the On/Off switch came undone on the first use while the unit was running. I've yet to open the mower lift.
