Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for the price. + Cutting power is better than other makes with similar horsepower. Shaft driven makes a positive difference and blades are heavier quality. Turn radius is compact. Heavy weight makes hill cutting easier. - Arm rests on the seat are unnecessary. Lights on all the time is unnecessary. Yellow hood color bleeds onto the black dash cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for the price I purchased this tractor (GSE) out of frustration from buying junk mowers from big box stores. My fault but I can now honestly say this mower is "top notch" in quality and reliability. I would have liked the Kohler 25 hp engine but it was not available so I accepted the 22.5 hp model. I also choose the welded mower deck over the stamped deck which is much heavier. I am not a Kohler fan but this engine has more than enough power for my needs and starts instantly. It does backfire when shutting off after running. Traction is excellent on wet or damp grass. Electric height adjustment is great and works well. THE FRAME IS BUILT LIKE A TANK AND FRONT END IS EQUALLY STRONG AND TOUGH. The "electronic power steering" is ok with no problems but I'm still not convinced its equal or better than normal power steering. I mow 7-8 acres of grass weekly and after 50 hours of work, nothing has gone wrong. There are plenty of grease jerks, make sure you have a good grease gun. My mower has performed excellently, no problems whatsoever. This mower is a mower, not a tractor. Other than the Kohler engine (which the jury is still out), this mower is fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the whole mower in general,the way it cuts and handles turns sharp and very comfortable ride and good seat.The hydrostatic is very good and I like the differential lock.Also I like the feature of being able to backup without the blade shutting off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed I was waiting for the GSX but had to settle for the GSE due to the long wait. I have a 54" fabricated deck installed. The XT3 GSE has a decent ride, but still not smooth. When I first brought it home my grass was about 6 inches tall, the GSE had allot of trouble with it. I found myself mowing at the highest level going super slow and it would still bog down regularly. I have 2 acres so took several hours. 3 days later I mowed again at level 4 height setting. It did better but would still bog down if I ran over any thick patches or old clumps of cuttings. Anything below level 4 will scalp the lawn. I like the placement of the cup and side holder, but it really needs an equipment basket behind the seat for misc lawn tools or pulling chains ect. There is no place for carrying anything larger than your cell phone, but it's so loud there is no way you could hear the phone ring anyway! Pulling power is average, I pull a lawn cart with wood in it no problem, but I wouldn't try to overload it. When mower is turned off it backfires every time. No idea if this is just break in normal stuff. The hood fits poorly and is already rubbing the paint off at the contact points. Just an average mower - not a real tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have ever had. I purchased a GTX 2154 in May 2014. It turned out to be a lemon. In June 2016 Cud Cadet gave me a new XT3 GSX. This is a great tractor. I handles wonderfully. It has a 25 hp engine that provides plenty power, even in tall, heavy grass. It has a differential locks that provides great tractor on slippery slopes. I love it. A great additions to the tractor. Cub Cadet put a dust shield between the engine and the dash. Very little dust and trash gets under the dash to cause problems with the electrical and the steering. All the other tractors i have had before this one gave me problems with trash getting under the dash. I have the 54 in fad deck. It cuts beautifully and makes short work of the 5 1/2 acres i mowed. The seat is easy to adjust. Most of the mowers i have had you would have to fight to adjust the seat. The steering wheel tilts. My grandson, my wife, my mom and me, with a big belly love this feature.. The power steering is a dream. Easier then a car. No fighting to turn, even when standing still. This tractor is by far the best designed, best engineered, best handling and best mowing tractor i have every had. I am 65 and i have had several tractors by several different brands. It is well worth the money.
