Reviews

Cub Cadet Ultima Series ZT1 54 in. Fab Deck 24HP Kohler V-Twin Zero Turn Mower, 17AREACA010 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1311.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet "Buyer Beware"! Worst Zero-turn mower I've ever had/used. The deck fell off after a day and almost turned over on me. I call Cub Cadet and they said that was impossible. (Why are there "roll bars" on zero-turns?). I'll never buy or recommend Cub Cadet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ....but? I recently purchased the same cub cadet ZT1 54 iv been considering a zero turn for quite some time i really enjoy it and can mow my yard in less than half the time it takes with my yard tractor, no more continuous backing up and turning around...love it..only problem i have is i have noticed a oil spot in my garage. I have researched it and seems that there is a small leak coming from the right side head gasket will be trying to locate what to do about getting this repaired. Will update progress later

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality equipment Bought this mower last month, my craftsman died, nearing the end of the season still needed something. been looking at the cub's for a yr now. I mow between 3-4.5 acres, alot is uneven terain and hilly. does a great job, control, precision, ability, and fuel economy all very acceptable. I have only mowed a little with this, however it seems very well put together, and more than capable of doing everything required for my needs. Only thing not 100% is the hr. meter gage hasnt worked since I picked it up. will visit shop where I bought it, and get that rectified. onyl gotten it stuck 1 time, and the ditch I was trying to get into was pretty ugly-can't blame that on the mower. can only give it a 4 due to hour meter not working-- that's a quality issue

Rated 3 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for the deck vibrates, it is a loud machine, back tires has no traction

Questions & Answers

Are the Hydro's servicable? Can you change oil and filter in these?

Asked by: 41Magman

Hi, does the ZT1 54 have an hour meter?

Asked by: Carhartt9623

Does the blades stay on when in reverse

Asked by: Olsalty50
Hello Olsalty50, if both control arms arm pulled backward, the blades will shut off. If only one arm is backwards, when turning, the blades will stay on. This model is equipped with an option to override the reverse safety mode, if you choose to cut in reverse.
