  5 Questions
Q: What model year is this machine , does it have the blue tooth and automatic chike
by Chris from Illinois on July 01, 2016

A: Chris,

This model does not include the Bluetooth feature but does have the automatic choke. The throttle will be the only item you will have to control.
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.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the steering tilt?
by Daniel from Minnesota on April 28, 2016

A: Daniel - the steering column is tilted all the way back for shipping. Once the mower is un-crated, you can set the steering column to one of two positions. However, once you select a position, the steering column is secured in place with two bolts, so it will not tilt or move after the initial set-up without removing these two bolts.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have a side hill that is about 10-15 degrees. Would this mower be able to handle mowing it down the sideslope or up and down the hill? The hill is a smaller part of my acre property but want to make sure to get a mower that can handle that hill. Was not sure if the steering wheel compared to the bars made a difference in the control?

Thanks for any input in advance!

by Brandon from Georgia on April 17, 2016

A: Brandon - yes, the steering wheel style zero turn mowers are much more effective for mowing hills and inclines since the front wheels are on a true steering mechanism and don't swivel independently like they would on a lap bar style zero turn. Mowing a hillside or slope is one of the main reasons for choosing a steering wheel style zero turn mower. A slope of 10 to 15 degree's is well within the operating specs for a steering wheel style zero turn. I think one of these would be ideal for what you are describing.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Good Afternoon;

Does this Cub shut off the mower blades when shifted into reverse? If so, is there a way to disable this undesirable feature?

by Tom from Florida on April 12, 2016

A: Tom - all Cub Cadet zero turn mowers, including the RZT S50, will mow in both forward and reverse. There is no override switch that needs to be activated.

Great Mower!!!!
I bought the mower in June 2016. We had looked at them for a long time. Mowers Direct was the best price. The free shipping and no tax I know we saved several hundred dollars. The mower was ordered late Wednesday night and was delivered on Monday. I can't say enough good things about Mowers Direct or my new Cub Cadet mower!!!

Great Lawn Mower At A Great Price
This has been a FANTASTIC buy! Saved us a lot of dollars and has been dependable ever since we got it! We needed the steering wheel for mounting stability due to that old age thing! Cut mowing time in more than half - very satisfied!!

Mower
This is a very nice mower, no scuffing around trees, comfortable seat, easy man uraninite..
One disappointing feature is the size of the gas tank. I am only able to mow for 1.25 hours before I have to refill.

Greatest Mower Ever
I had a 2008 Cub Cadet lt1045 that was very dependable for years.

About a year ago, we moved to a much bigger house with over 3 acres to mow, and that old mower was just taking too long. I finally broke down and bought the RZT S50. That is buy far the best mower ever for that kind of money.
It's been 2 months now, and I love it.

P.S. Mowers Direct is the best.

Cub Cadet With Steering Wheel
Great machine. We have two large lawns to mow, and it takes us about half the time with both of us using zero turn mowers. My wife uses this Cub Cadet and loves it.

Love The Mower So Far
I received my 50" RZT S50 mower 1 day earlier than promised. It was crated better than I would have thought...took me quite some time to get it unpacked. The minor assemble required was fairly easy. I have used it 3-4 times and have cut my mowing time from 3hrs to less than an hour.

The cut is great and the steering wheel makes it very easy to enjoy my cool beverage of choice while mowing! I chose the ZTR with the steering wheel because I have a 20-degree slope in my backyard and was... more

Best Kept Secret The Zero Turn With A Steering Wheel 50" Cut Sug
I had used this mower commercially a couple of years ago was great then, and still is. Great cut with the mulching kit it doesn't spew grass all over the sidewalk and driveway. I had a JD 1023E this does a much better job. Although I had a 60" deck too big and could not pull up grass after front wheels rolled over the grass. UNEVEN CUT

I Have Had One Two Years Now
I have always had Cub Cadet lawn mowers... I wish it had a back up light on it... so when I'm pulling it in the garage at night I could see where I'm going... the real complaint that I have though when pulling a aerator with weight on it... some times the wheels just spin... like there isn't enough power to pull it, or the tires need better gripping power... other than that, I love my machine!!!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Needs Back Up Lights

Great Zero Turn Mower
I absolutely love my new 4 wheel turn Cub Cadet RZT S50! I have 2 1/2 acres of very hilly lawn to cut and this machine did the job in almost half the time as my old John Deere 48" lawn tractor.

It's fast! 7 mph vs 4mph on the John Deere, plus the zero turn 4 wheel steering is much safer on hills than the traditional lap bars and a floating front wheels of a traditional zero turn. With a traditional lap bar zero-turn you have to crab sideways across slopes to keep the front wheels from... more
