Awesome Lawnmower
I bought this Cub Cadet to replace a well worn John Deere, and I couldn't be any happier. It always starts on the first pull, and it sure seems to climb our steep front yard well. I had to paint the wheels black to make it go faster or at least look fast.

Disappointed
This is actually my first self-propelled mower and I selected Cub Cadet based on reviews, What no one mentioned in the review is that the highest lever setting for the wheels is too short in the Texas heat, especially without decent rain. The grass is baking unless I water it vigorously.

Also, trying to go around curves while propelling the mower forward can be difficult. The biggest plus-easy assembly, and of course, great service at Mowers Direct. So to avoid resetting the pin for the... more
Pros: Fast
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Not Enough Settings On Wheel Lever

Cub Cadet Sc500hw Vs Honda Hrr2169vka
Iím the type of person who researches and researches and researches before making a purchase. Therefore in my search for a lawn mower I did a lot of, you guessed it, research. Based off many online reviews, top ten lists and Consumer Reports and budget, my search ended up at the Honda HRR2169VKA.

I have to say I was impressed at the build quality of this mower. It appeared well built and started on the first pull. However unfortunate, thatís where praises for this mower ended. I had... more

Great Machine
I'm 52-years-old been mowing with push mowers since I was 10 this is hands down the best mower I have ever used.

Have steep hills and it goes up with no effort amazing. Starts on first pull every time. Mulches with no clumps. Awesome mower, highly recommend.

Great Machine!
I did a lot of research to get the mower I wanted. I chose the Cub Cadet SC500HW because 1) previous experience with Cub products, 2) features that precisely met my needs, 3) mower unit and engine made in the USA, and 4) the numerous positive reviews from other owners.

Price was not a huge issue, as comparable mowers with Honda engines (no Kohler or Briggs for me!) were in the same range.

Similar to another reviewer, the local big box home improvement store had this for $10 more than... more
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Features, Reliable
Cons: Packaging, Parts Loose Or Lost During Shipping, Insufficient Oil Shipped With Unit

I love this mower. It has great power. My lawn was quite overgrown while I was shopping for a new mower, and this mower cut through it like butter. Glad I got this one.

Amazing Machine
This purchase is my first experience with Cub Cadet products and with PED. I was concerned how well this lawn mower would start without an engine speed control, manual choke or primer button. I was also very concerned about how well the Variable Speed Self-Propelled Drive System would perform. I imagined hard starting and that I might have to fight the drive system as I maneuvered around the many obstacles I have in my lawn. Despite my concerns however, due to the overwhelming positive... more

Love This Mower!
I love this mower! I have a hilly and rocky yard and it goes right up the hill. Ordering from Mowers Direct made the experience of buying a new mower easy. There were plenty of reviews to read and the ordering process was so easy. I also loved not paying delivery charges and this heavy mower was delivered down multiple stairs to my front door.

Easily The Best Mower!
This mower is amazing. Self propelled basically runs itself, all you are doing is guiding it. Big bag but not so big that it is too heavy.
Makes my neighbors jealous.

Came A Day Early
Was shipped a day early, so it came a day earlier. Unfortunately FedEx dumped it in my doorway (UPSIDE DOWN). The box was really screwed up and that's why he dumped it and ran. I was keeping my fingers crossed and took pictures before I removed the 1 piece of tape still holding the box top together.

I checked all the parts and assemblies, and other than scratches and scuffs, everything appeared normal. Put it together, oiled and gassed it, and it ran like a top. Other than a bent grass bag... more
