Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy I would first like to say that Tractor Supply had the best deal on this mower! I read several other brands reviews and also went to several stores to get advice from people about zero turns. Most people love them because they are faster, some do not because of the turfing issues. I found that if you actually take the time to turn the mower as it should be done you have little to no turfing. I have had other Cub Cadet lawn tractor mowers and I believe this zero turn is going to be around for a long long time. The steering of this machine is great and simple the more pressure you apply the harder it will turn or move forward or reverse faster. I will admit it does take some getting use to at first because the transmission is kinda touchy but once you figure out and can finesse the controls(took me 4mowings to figure out) mowing is a breeze. I hope this review helps someone trying to decide on what to purchase. It also comes with a 3yr warranty/250hours which ever is first. And a optional warranty if you want it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RZT 42 I have used the RZT42 for one year on my one acre yard. The mower has exceeded my expectations. I have not had any problems with the mower and the cut is excellent. I have added the mulch kit and purchased a lawn striping kit that was designed to fit the frame of the Cub Cadet. The yard looks even better now. The only problem is that the mowing gets done too quickly. This is an great mower for residential use. It does well on slopes (going up or down).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very pleased i have owned many lawn tractors over the years and cub cadet has seemed to be the one that has held up the best !!! i recently purchased a rzt-42 inch cut zero turn mower. i have wanted one of these for a long time. i was able to purchase this mower due to the very competive price. this is the first zero turn mower i have ever owned. and i am VERY pleased with the performance of the mower. i mow not only my home but a good size cemetary, and it cuts my mowing time in half !!! i was impressed with the cut and the speed of the mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strongest mower I have ever used!!!! I bought this mower yesterday and mowed my VERY high grass with it. I left the deck on it's lowest setting and the mower went through it like the grass wasn't even there!!!! I was VERY impressed. This is my first zero turn mower and the controls took a bit of getting used to, but I finished cutting my 3 acres in record time without any problems.
