Cub Cadet 2018 SC 500 Z 21 in. Rear Wheel Drive Self-Propelled Mower, 12ABO6M5710 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 204.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from near perfect. I bought the earlirer version five years ago [honda engine] and couldn't be happier. always starts on the first pull and the swivel wheels eliminate the need to take pressure off the front wheels when turning; would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower! Love the front wheels This is actually the second one of these mowers that we've gotten. The first is now 14 years old and is being used by our 16 yr old son for his weekend mowing jobs. Overall, it's a great mower. The front wheels and self propel feature make it super easy to maneuver. The size of the catching bag is perfect. No more hefting heavy bags of clippings and the new design makes it easy to empty. It starts on the first pull, everytime. I did have an issue with a pin on the rear assembly not staying and Cub Cadet sent me a replacement without hassle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Broke too soon I like this mower, but it only lasted 2 years.. When new, it gave good service and I got a lot of hours out of it, but in the end, the front mower deck cracked in two places, where the front wheel assembly was bolted on to the deck.. THIS is the weak point.. This and all other mowers (and there are tons) with the plastic front wheel assembly bolted to the deck, are to be avoided from here on out.. Replacing with a Snapper Commercial push mower... For light use, this is decent choice... For heavier use, avoid...

CC's mean nothing to me. Can you please tell me what the HP is?

Asked by: matteo
Hello matteo. Variations in engine testing specifications over the years have resulted in vague and inconsistent horsepower measurements. Horsepower rating relates to various engine-driven product applications and is inconsistent between engine manufacturers and the final product that is manufactured using that engine. Because of that inconsistency, the engine manufacturer rates this engine by CC’s (cubic centimeters), which is measured by the displacement of the engine’s cylinder bore. There is no direct mathematical conversion to calculate engine horsepower to engine displacement. Thank you for your question.

What kind of fuel does it use?

Asked by: Tootie55
Hello Tootie55, The unit can take regular 87 octane fuel. The owner's manual for the unit may advise "87 or higher octane", but you would need to check for your specific unit. We do recommend stabilizer when using regular fuel or ethanol-free fuel to avoid having to use stabilizer. We typically recommend ethanol content of less than 10%. Thank you for your question!
