Great Mower, Very Minor Issues.
I did a good deal of research on wide mowers before I purchased the Cub Cadet CC600. I had it narrowed down to 3 mowers (Cub, Troy-Bilt, & Craftsman) until I found out that they are all basically the same model. What sold me on the Cub vs the others was the bagger and the caster wheels.

With the large size of the mower, I wanted the one that turned with ease and bagged grass. Once the mower was home and unpacked, I noticed that the cheap, plastic wing nuts used to hold the caster wheels... more

Update number 3. Had the following issues (note this is the first year made model) 1. battery went dead and will not charge per the owners manual running the engine keeps the battery charged. 2. Mulch door will not stay shut while mulching. Grass dams up against door and pushes it open allowing clumps of grass to fall out. 3. Will not start using electric start. 4. Catcher flops open at the bottom allowing grass to fall out. 5. Hard to start using pull rope.

Overall A Good Mower
I have had this mower for 3 months now. Thought it time to make a review. I have mowed using both mulching & bagging set-ups. Overall I am very happy with the product so far.

1. My biggest fear on this mower was that it would be under powered. I am happy to say that has not been the case here. The similar Toro was considered under powered when it first came out with the 190cc engine, so they upped it to the 220cc version. I was afraid the CC at 195 would also be under powered. While I... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: some disign issues with the deck, weight & balance of mower too far towrds rear

Great Mower, Lots Of Options
I have a large yard (1 acre), and have been using riders for the last 12 years. But over that time we have put in many trees and garden beds, and the riders have become just too difficult to use. I bought the Cub Cadet CC600 with the intent of being better able to navigate all the difficult areas and so far it's been superb. It's very easy to use, and gives me lots of options on grass height, mulching vs. bagging, and the zero turn front wheels are a godsend.

The only criticism so far is... more

More Like A 24 Inch Cutting Path. Has A Diagonal Deck.
The mower does have a 28 inch deck but it is diagonal. This takes away about 3 inches.
The actual width with the chute hose attached is 33.5 inches. I bought the 2017 toro timemaster to replace this. I think the toro is a far better mower. Just be sure to get the 2017 model it is much better than the previous ones.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Heavy, Only cuts a 24 inch path

Cub Cadet Review
I have had this mower for a few months and here are the problems.....
1. Mower hard to start even using the rope pull or the electric start. Seems to flood engine very easily. Instruction manual says to engage blade handle when starting. This seems odd as it puts extra strain on the starter, battery or your arm if pulling the starter rope.
2. The side discharge chute becomes dislodged if the chute rubs against a bush or other object, so be sure when mowing up against anything you do it with... more

Avoid This Mower If You Bag Your Grass
Initially, I could not start the engine using the electric start and it took about 1/2 hour of pulling the cord. However, the electric start fired up on the first push the next time I used the machine.

The self propel mechanism is easy to use and plenty powerful.

WARNING: The side discharge and grass catcher is defectively designed. If you have healthy grass, the grass will become lodged in the side chute after about 25 feet. I am not talking about 4-5 inches of grass. Anything over... more
Cons: Heavy, Unreliable, Expensive

Not So Good After 6 Months Of Use
Well I purchased this mower in April and since the weather has gotten in the 60's the mower will not start using the electric starter at all. I have to use the pull rope to start and it will never start with the first or second pull of the rope. If it is 90 plus degrees outside the mower will usually start easier but in the cold not so much.

Maybe 10 pulls then wait 15-20 minutes then try again. Another problem is the battery will not charge up with the engine running. The battery is either... more

Disappointment
I have used this mower for 14 cuts now on my 1/4 acre lawn and have had multiple issues so far. On three occasions, I've had to reconnect the shut off switch in order to turn the machine off.

The right wheel does not grab as good as the left while going up hill (10% grade), which makes for a little struggle to maintain straight lines and the bagging system clogs very quickly so you're lucky if half the bag gets filled before you have to shut down and clear the chute.

"Mowers Direct is not to blame since they sold me something that has a high rating. The problem that I see is this machine has a high dollar price tag but not worth half of what I paid. I am very disappointed with my mower and am in the process to either see about a return or just replace with a better, less expensive machine. I find that it's sad when what used to be a good name gets made by what was never a good name."

Fantastic Mower
Bought this mower early this summer and have been very happy with it. The power is fantastic, the self pace handle and technology is great, and the overall handling and maneuverability is great.

The bagger is a decent size and holds quite a bit before needing to be changed. Right now I have one mulching blade and bagging blade on the mower and it helps make things easier by creating higher wind and forces the grass clippings in to the chute and bag with a little more strength. The height... more

So far so good. I really love the feature as it pullls at your own pace. The only negative thing I can think of is that the battery charger ($10 at the most) should have been shipped with the Mower instead of making you purchase it separately.

Great Product
I use this more heavy residential and Commercial mowing. It leaves a nice cut 28 inches did Mows really fast. It starts easy and has plenty of power even for heavy grass. I have not used the bag attachment yet. The Mulch attachment works great. The side discharge chute is useless in heavy grass. It comes unhinged and has to be removed.

I propped The Mulch door open with a rubber strap and this seems to work fine in heavy grass. I would say the mower needs a design Iin this attachment.. The... more

Nice, Needs Tweaks
Mows well in mulch cycle. Hard to start with battery, not so much with pull. Doesn't clean completely with hose attachment, need to augment cleaning with hose afterwards. Could use larger fuel tank (fuel lasts about 1 hour).

I I purchase one of these before the spring and so far I like everything about this mower except the bagging tube often gets clogged.

The good thing is it mulches so well that you will not notice. But sometimes you just want to pickup the clippings and I find it is not good for that.

Bags Poorly
With the bagging blades installed, the mower bags poorly because it has so much air going into the bag. The bottom of the bag does not stay flush against the mower, so grass clippings is coming out the bottom, so you will need something to hold the bag flush against the mower at the bottom, like a weight or bungee cord to hold the bag in place!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
Cons: Bag Poorly

Mower Update
Have used mower a few more times and used the mulch feature for,the first time. This is the worst feature of the 3 mowing modes.

The mulching door that blocks the shoot cover does not stay closed as you mow the grass the grass pushes the cover open as clumps of grass pushes the cover open. I will have to figure a way to maybe use a bungee cord to help keep the cover shut?

Another problem is the plastic housing that covers the start button. The cover does not stay in place and stays gaped... more
