Reviews

Cub Cadet Ultima Series ZT1 54 in. Fab Deck 24HP Kohler V-Twin Zero Turn Mower California CARB Compliant, 17AREACA210 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3acres/tough grass I was searching for a mower for 3 acres of what looks like hay. This mower cut my mow time in half. My grass was 2ft high. It’s fast and fun to drive. Easy for this southern lady to manicure. Turns without delay and I only had to go over the grass with 1 pass.It mows so much faster than my John Deere.excellent price and choice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet Zero Turn Purchased Cub Cadet Zero turn have had it almost a month so far very satisfied with it. Got it from TS at a very good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great mower! My old scag zero turn started to self destruct and was 20 years old. The price to repair it was nearing the cost of this Cub Cadet ZT. We’ve had this unit a month and mow three acres with lots of trees. We are extremely pleased with the design and performance.

Being that is has a 3.5 gallon tank, how efficient is it on gas? I cannot find anything on the mower as far as hours per tank. I do know that would depend on how you mow and how hard the engine is pushed. Regular yard mowing 6 mph.

I'm looking for a mower to mow 3 acres of tall weeds. Will this mower be effective for that? If not, is there one that is?

Asked by: Temecula Jason
Hello Temecula Jason. You should not normally attempt to mow grass more than 10" tall. If necessary, raise the mower deck and make multiple lawn cuttings, lowering the deck and removing the clippings after each lawn cutting. Thank you for your question.

I currently have a 42inch regular ride on mower. I have a steep hill I mow. I mow it going straight up and down. Will this mower be able to do that? I have a Husqvarna with a Kohler engine. It usually takes me 4 1/2 hours to mow.
