Rated 4 out of 5 by from very smooth running lawnmower Very smooth operating mower. Noise level is low, keeps up to my fast pace very well. Only negative I can say is to check for level of grass cut, the front wheels on mine need to be one notch lower than the back, not a major big deal. Cub Cadet has done a great job on this mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of operation I have found that this mower is very easy to operate, it starts with pull, and has made mowing myn lawn very easy, it has allowed me to return to my being able to mow without having to pay someone else to do it for me. What used to take two days to do now I can do in only one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 seasons in I've had this mower for 3 seasons now, and I'm still very happy with it. The MySpeed is an excellent system for allowing comfortable pace and hand grip on a mower. The high rear wheels are great on rough terrain. I don't use the bag very often, but it is not the most effective if that's what you're after. The bag fills quickly at the front and reduces the ability for the whole bag to fill. The mower starts on the first pull every time and runs great. I have changed the oil several times via the filler spout since the drain bolt is right up against the base of the engine and top of the deck. The handles can be unbolted and fold down for easy transport. The mower is easy to lift in and out of a pickup due to the folding handles and handle integrated into the front of the deck. No regrets at all with 3 seasons in and hopefully many more ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Exceptionally nice for trimming around gardens, trees, and other difficult areas and cleans up so easily. The self-propel is wonderful for going up hills (and down too). For our lawn, the bag is too small for large areas and would be the only thing that is not a plus for us living on a farm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mower I have owned I bought my SC 500 HW from a local dealer. Nothing but nice things to say about that process, but that's another story. This mower is by far the best I have owned. Sturdy, starts on 1st pull, RWD is positive and adjusts almost automatically to my pace for the day. I bag mostly mulch and occasionally bag and it works and cuts very easily with both. Nice looking level yard when finished. I have owned all the other name brands along the way (I'm 75) and this is my 1st Cub. Hopefully, not my last. Stay healthy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from uneven cut Bought this from local Club cadet dealer not big box store. Starts great and rear wheel drive is strong. I wish I could have tested it first. The post control for the drive system is awkward and it can have a bouncy feel. The worst part is the uneven cut of the grass. I have to make several passes to get the grass fully even with the cut. Been that way ever since new. Not worth the $399. My older mower with worn blades still cuts smoother than this mower. Sad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SC 500 - great mower with a small issue We got this mower a month or so ago. It was time for a self-propelled mower. This has really lived up to the reviews and product claims....with one annoying exception. The blower port broke after the fourth use, after brushing up against the house. The spring-loaded flap bent, and broke off the spring, so now, it is just loose. We'll have to have the whole part replaced. It should last a little longer than 4 uses.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would like to return this mower This mower starts and runs great. The self propel system work great in my hilly yard. The problem I am having is with the flap in the back which also is a main component of the bagging system. The pin that holds the flat in place continuously needs to be put back into place and even when the pin is put in place the flap does not stay shut when the mower is running. This is a problem because when I try to mulch the grass, the clippings are able to blow out the back instead of staying under to mower to be mulched by the blades. The force generated by the mower blades blows the flap open which results in grass clippings flying everywhere. When the bagger system is on, the same problem happens. When the mower is running, it blows the flap up just enough to let grass clippings blow out. Not the end of the world, I know, but also not was I expecting from a $400 mower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED Ordered online, local dealer called me to say that he didn't have the product, nor was it in stock at the factory. So overall, this product was never used by me. Would be good to know that a product isn't available AT ALL before I go through the entire ordering process, as well as giving up my credit card & other information.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not made for mowing around things This mower is designed for and works great on straight mowing, but if you have to mow around a tree, etc., the handle/drive design could definitly be improved. Would like to have been able to try this mower out before buying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heavy, doesn't go up hilly terrain. Needed a new self propel mower and thought this would fit our needs. It is a very heavy machine and for being self propelled I have to push it up the hills otherwise the wheels will just spin. The front of the mower has a "handle" on it which doesn't allow you to get close to things for trimming. Wish my old lawnboy (20+ yrs old) wouldn't have died.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Brand Name Reputation, Great features!!! I researched several other mowers and always came back to the Cub, my first impression using this mower was smooth, quick and a great cut and so easy to maneuver. I used a rear wheel drive for many years and it always drove me crazy, my opinion rear wheel drive has so much more control. Love this Machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Five years old I bought this mower over five years ago. Had to replace the drive cable and throttle cable a couple of times. Now the throttle cable handle is broken. Had a few other issues as well. Not what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good mower Very happy with this mower. Starts easily. It's fairly light making it easy to maneuver. Good speed. Doesn't clog up with wet grass. Handle a bit high for my 5'2" person! Got used to it though.
