Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet I have been watching this mower for weeks. Ordered it through customer service and had it shipped to my home. Delivered earlier than expected but that was a plus ! Small assembly required and started right up. Mower is exactly what I wanted. Cuts great . Great customer service and quality products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine with some minor tweaks needed My wife has an extremely hard time starting most mowers but this one started on the first pull so she is in love with it. My complaint is that one ofmthe caster wheels does not unlock in the unlocked position. 40 years of lawn and garden repair experience behind me so this is a minor tweak and it will be fixed. There are very few push mowers that impress me with power and performance but this is definitely one that does. Had they caught the castor problem, I would have given 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower I recently bought this mower and have had the opportunity to mow my yard a few times with it and I really like it. The only issue I have had was the opening to the bag getting clogged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality performance does wxcellent work of my yard and it has a slope but it pulls right up it very happy so far but only used it once.

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!
