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

Best Lawnmower Ever
I read the reviews, but experiencing it for myself was even better. I love this lawnmower. My old one was self-propelled but I had to push it up inclines. Not my Cub Cadet SC500HW (21") 159cc High Wheel Self-proelled. I can't even open it up to full speed because it goes faster than I can keep up with for any length of time. My mowing time was reduced by 30 min. on a normally 1.6 hour lawn. It shipped very fast about 3 days, each to put together and away you go.
Very satisfied.

Ditches Made Easy
This is by far the best mower that I have ever had. Going over the bumps in the yard is a breeze. The ditches that we have are cut with ease. The larger rear wheels combined with the rear wheel drive pulls straight out of the incline of the ditches.

Steady and true, easy to handle, the cut quality of the Cub Cadet is far superior to any mower. My two boys 14 and 12 even look forward to cutting the grass. Chores made easy

Great General Purpose Mower
I bought this mower for use at a lake property my wife and I own. I wanted a mower with the high rear wheels and rear wheel drive. I preferred the Cub Cadet because there is no separate warranty for the engine and the mower components. If I need warranty work I just take it to a Cub Cadet dealer.

The service from Mowers Direct was nothing but phenomenal. I placed the order on a Tuesday just before 5 p.m. and the mower was at my door Thursday at 8 a.m. I found it very easy to assemble... more

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.

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 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
