Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut through Tall Grass like Butter! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received my XT2 LX42 just the other day. My old mower had finally bit the dust, and my lawn looked like a jungle! I started the XT2 LX42 then set the cutting height to 3-1/2. As soon as I hit the grass, it started spitting out grass like a hay bailer! I think this is the most fun I've had cutting the lawn in all the years that I've been cutting -- and that's a long time! The entire time I was cutting the grass the engine was set at it's lowest setting, and the forward/reverse throttle control was easy to use. Can't wait for the extreme mulching kit to be available, as the grass really shoots out forcefully and at a great distance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from XT2 LX42 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Impossible to lower anti-scalp wheels to 1/2 or 1/4” from ground as directed in manual. Mechanic at Cub dealer suggested removing and then rewelding the brackets. On a redesigned mower costing over $2500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4th year in use review [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] OK, you buy a product and register it and they want a review. You get I brought it home, fired it up and it worked great! I don't do reviews like that, I use the product over and over and then maybe will write a review. I've owned my Cub for 4 years now, here's a real review. This is without a doubt the best lawn mower I've ever owned! I've had 3 other brands that never performed as well as this Cub Cadet. We have 50 acres in northern MN and I routinely mow 4+ every 1-2 weeks and sometimes way more if I get into my pasture and deer food plots. I was leery of the hydrostatic drive as all my others had select a speed levers, this drive has never let me down, it's easy and seamless. Never had a Kawasaki engine, all Briggs or Koehler's in the past, The Kawasaki starts EVERY time, runs great and has great torque to power through the tough stuff. Maintenance: In 4 years I've changed the oil and filter twice, sharpened the blades twice, blew out the air filter twice. The original battery is still good and with a wash every now and again it looks as good as new. The welded deck was important to me as I mow over a lot of sticks and branches that I don't pick up. The mower is parked in an unheated garage during the winter, I put Stabil in the gas when I park it. Fires up first try in the spring. I absolutely consider this Cub Cadet one of the best investments I've ever made! 4th year use review, it's been thru hell and back and still runs as well as it did the first time when I was asked to review it! Absolutely FIVE STARS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tractor [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First yard big enough for a riding mower.... and I couldn't be happier with my choice on this! Rides like a dream, cuts like a dream, and the bagger great too.... it looks really good too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black hood is the newer 2021 model [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just got it today after waiting a couple of months for the new 2021 model to come out. First of all please make sure you look at the reviews for people that got the newer 2021 model with the black hood, not the older 2020 model with full yellow hood. The difference between the old and the new model is that it has the best engine, Kawasaki and a heavy duty fabricated desk , not stamped. These two features you will normally find it in the higher models but the XT2 for them , so that's the one you want. Regarding the deck 42 inches is sufficient since it does not stick too much on the left side, when you sit on the tractor and looo down, meaning less risk to catch the corner of a stone of fence. Also, this new model has a better battery and the front wheels turn almost 90 degrees, easy to stear. This tractor replaces another Cub Cadet that was 20 years old, so looking for another 20 years with this one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great mower! Happy with the purchase and decision to go with cub cadet. The 42” is perfect for our yard and the upgrades for the xt2 are worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handles well [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased my XT2 LX42 in April 2021. I also paid for a mulching kit at the time and so far have not received it. The mower handles well but cut unevenly and scalps unlevel places in my yard. The side discharge spreads the clippings so far that I can not determine where I have cut and miss places in my lawn. My grandson really liked the looks and performance of the mower and he cuts my grass, so That is the primary reason for purchasing this mower. The deck belt jumps off the pulley regardless if the PTO is engaged at low or full engine speed. He also really wanted a Cadet Tee shirt and cap, but they are not available either. I am starting to wish that I had gone back to J.D. that served me well for over 10 years, which I gave to my son. I am really trying hard to like this mower but I am starting to regret the purchase. My dealer is great, but he can't help me either. It handles great and has excellent power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor craftsmanship. Third time using the one blade fell off. I checked the underside of the deck and noticed the threads on the bolt that holds it on are stripped. Not sure where this happened but already in need of a repair.
