Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower I guess I will start with saying that I was a little hesitant at first but my local Cub Dealer was very patient and let me take the machine home to test it on my very hilly property. Well I drove the machine around for about 15 minutes and could not believe the difference in handling and speed vs my lawn tractor. So I decided to mow my lawn and was blown away by the performance versus my green lawn tractor. Not trying to bash the competitor but my green lawn tractor was bought new from dealer 8 years ago and progressively got worse at cutting last few years regardless of how many times I had the blades sharpened, replaced or the deck leveled. My local dealer for my green tractor could not figure out the problem and this year it was leaving a uncut strip every 42 inches. So I decided to purchase the Cub Cadet SX48 and couldn't be happier, plus my Cub Dealer gave me a good trade on my lawn tractor knowing it had a problem. So after now owning the SX48 for 3 weeks I am still very impressed. I have been able to cut my mowing time nearly in half. This machine traverses hills/slopes like nothing I have used before and I worked for a landscaper for 4 years when I was a teenager. This machine seems to be built very strong for a residential unit and has more than enough power in my opinion. Also the machine cuts better than any previous mowers I have owned. I am glad I decided to spend more and get a better machine, it was well worth it. My only regret may be that I didn't buy the Cub Pro Z100. If you are considering this machine (SX Series) you may want to look at the Pro Z100, that is a real nice machine but I couldn't justify the cost for my needs. Thanks Cub Cadet for the SX Series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure yet Just purchased and used twice. It is much safer on hills than my Kabota zero turn but not as fast or powerful. Only issue right now is it is very jerky when putting in reverse and transmission is jerky occasionally going fwd. I can't see any pattern in the cause of the jerking. Anyone else having this issue?. Neighbor's daughter just purchase same machine and has identical issue. Steering wheel cover was damaged when delivered. New one ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want a great mower for hills Moved to property with steep hills and slopes, about 4 acre's to mow, had just purchased new cub riding mower last year, to dangerous on these slopes, dealer suggested this mower for steep slopes, it's a beast, every time I mow it's still unbelievable how this thing mows on slopes, sideways at that. Love it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in Cub Cadet at every level I saw this model and LOVED the steering wheel, Kawasaki engine and sturdy frame. Called Cub and was told they would be manufacturing them mid-September. I ordered through a dealer and in 2 weeks it was in and it is still September...I thought that was odd but was glad to have the mower. Started it at dealer & it kept shutting off as soon as the break was released. Dealer said it was the safety switch and supposedly fixed it. I went back to the dealer and it started so I thought it was just a glitch the first time and it was good to go.. It was delivered to our home & we cut 4 strips of grass and blades stopped and engine shut off. It stalled out 5 times with 15 minutes. I thought I was buying a 2020 and it was a 2019 with 3 hours on it. It was a piece of junk. The dealer came & picked it up. I was told that they are not manufacturing any this year by the dealer...he said his rep told him this. I called Cub Cadet back and confirmed that they are manufacturing them and I should be able to have one in October. I told the rep that I was talking with that the dealer's rep said that was not true. The Cub rep said he was looking at it on his computer and according to his computer they are due in October. He then said he would check with someone else and get back to me. It has been 2 days and I have not heard back from Cub Cadet. Their service or lack thereof is a disgrace!! I am left not knowing what to think! Does anybody even care??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles steep terrain better than any mower [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Had this mower over four years, no major problems only a couple of oil leaks. Handles my slopping uneven yard better than any mower I have owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT Mower Excellent fit and finish. Handles exceptionally well, steering wheel is a revelation!!! One small nit to pick is no ROPS. This is a glaring flaw in an otherwise top notch product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got Hills? No Problem. This is it. Owned this for a little over 3 years. Here’s how it went. Bought a house on a hill. Had 4 manufacturers come test their product on my hill. One almost flipped. The other couldn’t stop and would roll uncontrollably down hill. All struggled to keep a straight cut line on a hill. NOT THIS CUB!!!! I can mow my 1/2 Acre in style, with 1 hand on the steering wheel, and another on the a nice cold beverage. I added the Strip Kit and man.. I am the envy of my neighborhood. The Motor fires up Every time and I still have the factory battery. Feel very stable going up, down, and making Zero Turns on my steep hills. Now I use this machine as a residential mower and it is a bit pricey, however worth every penny. After returning 3 other machines from other manufacturers this one here did the job. It’s little brother did the job just as good too. But I wanted the nice chair. Baller! Now I just need to get the proper bagger for it. Kind a hard to find the correct part number for the bagger. I look forward to cutting now. I had surgery and didn’t want to risk another injury with a machine that can cause harm or get stuck. ——The best thing about this is how stable, agile, smooth and “THE STEERING WHEEL” Makes maintaining that straight cut line on my angles and hills a breeze! The way it works is the 2 wheels on this bad boy are controlled by the steering wheel! They don’t free float like other zero turns. Thus giving you the coolest Go Cart, Grass cutting, Stripe Laying you can get…. Sold! Highly recommend! The mulch kit works very well as well. These seem hard to get now.
