Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great , but controls are a little flaky [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought ZT1 42E from a local dealer about 3 weeks ago . I have a little under 1.5 acres of lawn , the cut is great battery was at 48% after about 1 hr run time. Only have one compliant about the controls sometimes i experience a slight hesitation when i push the control arms forward or pull back. Also had a large pile of leaves left from the fall , drove thru them to test the power of the blades with the bagger attached and this caused the blades motors to stop due to the motor overload fault switch. Made one modification on the bagger , i removed the nut and bolt that attached it and replaced it with a cotter pin

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing Just purchased this unit for my handicapped father to use around his house and our farm and an fault code appeared within a week. Mower deck wouldn't engage. Tried contacting cub cadet and was on hold for over an hour. Tried the chat and waited another hour only for them to say they can't help me. I want to fix the unit myself but can't even get information about what procedure to take. Tried contacting our local cub repair folks and they can't work on these electric units. It would be nice if cub cadet would be helpful. Overall very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery charging a hassle You have no off unit charging capability. So, unlike competitors, you can't have batteries charging while you work. Once you run out of juice, you have a 4hour wait to get a full charge. You should have modular batteries that are easy to remove and replace. Also, why did you reduce the tire size for the electric unit? Bigger tires and more batteries would make this nearly perfect. The steering is crazy because you did not take time to study throttle linearity, but I understand this is not a Tesla. Just a couple of improvements and you have a planet friendly, neighbor loving machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good so far [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve mowed 5 times so far. First mow when I put the key in it had error codes. Took key in and out three times it finally reset the error codes. Third time I tried to mow it did the same thing. Now I’m trying to mow for the fifth time and the codes won’t clear. So now it’s a $4500 paperweight. The third and fourth time I am old he did not make my acre and a half. I had to charge it back up and finish later. My local dealer is not selling this mower so they’re not willing to work on it either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1st 2 days and 1st cut......finally! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought my ZT142 E 2 days ago. I got home and got it 100% charged I went to cut for about 15 minutes and the blades turned off I tried everything nothing worked, loaded it on the trailer try to get in the blade started up for a second then I got a code E235 took it back the next day went to grab another one loaded up on my trailer and before I could even finish tying it down I had a code come up on it, took it off got another one this one seems to do fine. got it home cut my lawn cut the lawn at the gym and still had 55% and that was a good one and a half acres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ZT1 42E [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great performance. I mow a 1.25 acre yard and have barely been below 50% charge when finished every time. Super clean cut and awesome maneuverability. Love my zero turn. Not having to mess with gas/oil is just icing on the cake!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, horrible implementation I purchased this mower 3 weeks ago, have mowed 4 times now, and it makes me sick thinking about the money I wasted on this. I did the calibration (good luck even unloading it if you don't), checked tire pressure, and looked over any user serviceable adjustments I can find. If your yard is a perfectly flat square with no obstacles, you might actually be pretty impressed by this. If you have a fence or anything around the perimeter, be prepared to hit it a bunch or push mow that last foot. And if you have any trees or even the slightest grade change, be prepared to hate every minute of being on the mower. The controls are twitchy. It's almost as if the computer has a delay between the input from the sticks and the output to the drive motors. From a dead stop, you can carefully ease in to the sticks and have some degree of control. But once it's moving, good luck. That said, with time I've gotten a lot better at dealing with the "twitch". The bigger issue is it doesn't seem like the motors have any sort of deceleration capabilities. What I mean is if you're going along with both sticks full forward, and ease off on one side to slow it down and thus make it turn in that direction, it doesn't. You can almost get to where one stick is full on neutral with the other full forward, and it barrels along darn near straight. On a real zero turn you'd be sitting with one tire stopped driving in a circle. To make matters worse, as soon as the computer sees 1% of reverse the thing violently stops and reverses the wheel that had been freewheeling forward all along, leaving a nice scar in your yard and making it near impossible to drive around trees and obstacles. This issue is especially evident going downhill, as noted in many other reviews, it just kinda wanders in whatever direction gravity decides to pull it, right up to the point that you pull the stick back enough that it sees reverse input. Queue the whiplash and big dirt scar as one wheel grinds to a halt and suddenly reverses. I want to love this mower. The seat is comfy, it looks nice, it's quiet. I whole hardheartedly believe electric is a future. This is just an awful implementation. The guys that tested this either have never mowed before in their life, or tested it on a perfectly flat yard. And it wouldn't be hard to fix. Regenerative braking might provide enough drag, or they could've maybe used servo motors, or even just cleverly actuated mechanical brakes. Anything to make stick input directly correlate to motor rpm, and make it so when you pull back on a stick the corresponding wheel slows down. Maybe it can be fixed with a software update, I don't know if the hardware is actually capable or not. I did call customer service. Their advice was calibrate again (*rolls eyes*). They did mention adjusting the brakes, which do in fact come on when you pull to neutral, but maybe there's a fix there. I'll reach out to the local dealer and ask, but I don't have high hopes after reading all these other reviews. Bottom line, this thing isn't ready for an average yard. I do hope they fix it, and if there's any way to update models already in service when they do, I'll gladly circle back and edit this review if I can. But for now, I would not recommend this mower to anyone that doesn't hate their yard and their Saturdays.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2nd one breaks down within one month of purchase This is the second one that breaks down within one month. The first one I was able to return to Homedepot after Cub Cadet couldn’t help me. Now I have a wrench sign and machine wouldn’t start. This is such a poor craftsmanship, period. Would never recommend a cub cadet product to any one. Very disappointed to say the least. Now I can’t talk to service department because they are closed on the weekends when almost everyone cuts their grass!!!
