Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking piece of equipment Few small issues upon arrival. Front caster wheel spring loaded hook was bent out of box, so couldn’t allow wheel to spin. Had to take apart to fix. Doesn’t bag grass nearly as good as my John Deere, but does make nice lines in grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the neighbors said "That's a really nice mower This is my second unit. I had purchased one that was not electric start and a close friend needed a new mower. He and I both love the capability and quality. I do wish I could have avoided the freight costs to store for this with electric start. Also the charger is not included and it is necessary to charge up to a max of 12 hours once a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly easy to use I lost my old 2001 Honda self propelled mower. This Cub Cadet is a dream compared to what that Honda ever was. It starts super easy, runs smoothly, mulches and bags like a charm. The self propel my speed is easy to figure out. I was worried it'd be awkward, but it was easy. Just a little pressure pushing the throttle and it goes. A little more pressure and it goes faster. It goes backwards easily, simply because you're not going forward. After a month and 3 cuts, this mower is my new favorite tool.
