Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet Purchased this Cub Cadet mower and took it home to mow. Blades would not turn, due to a bent deck underneath. Took it back to the store I purchased it from. The employee used a hammer and straightened it enough to allow the blades to turn. Mower does a good job.

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.

Does the engine have a low oil shut-down

Asked by: Gary25
Hello Gary25. The LCD screen will alternate the letters “CHG”, followed by “OIL”, followed by “SOON”, followed by the meter’s accumulated time. “CHG/OIL/SOON/TIME” will alternate on the display for 7 minutes after the meter reaches 50 hours. This oil service minder interval will occur every 50 hours. Before the interval expires, change the engine oil as instructed in the Engine Operator’s Manual. Thank you for your question.
