Q: Is this a fixed wide-open throttle, or is the user able to adjust the throttle from idling (let it warm up a little) to fully open?
by Tom from Montana on April 03, 2016

A: Tom - the Cub Cadet 159cc engine on this mower has a fixed throttle setting. The throttle is not adjustable.

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

Works Great
It keeps up with my fast pace. The rear wheel drive gets caught and stops once in a while when a stick or something gets in the wheel. I also painted the wheels black for added speed and superior neighborhood jealousy.

Ideal Slope Cutting Mower
When cutting my half-acre property I use a 42" lawn tractor, but have an area along the property front with a slope to steep for the tractor. Purchased this mower specifically for cutting that sloped area and found it to be the ideal tool for the job.

This mowers large wheeled rear drive provides ample traction for it to pull itself along the slope, and the fixed front wheels allow the mower to hold its cut line without turning downhill. Cut height adjustment is quick and smooth.... more

Smart Mowing
My wife purchased this mower for me after my previous mower lost its self-propelling capability. She said she did not like seeing how flushed I got after pushing the mower up the side yard incline.

I was apprehensive about ordering an item like this online, but can tell you that is a thing in the past after getting and using this mower!!
This mower starts with the first pull and is ready to work smart saving me much energy. I have found that I use less gas operating this mower and that... more

Excellent So Far.
The high reviews on this mower are legitimate. I have only had it for a few weeks, but the initial impression is very good. I have a very steeply terraced lawn in the front and back along with some tree root obstacles, and the combo of high rear wheels with rear wheel propulsion makes this mower climb like a mountain goat.

The mower has lots of power, which may be because it is very light in weight, combined with a good motor and proper gearing in the transmission. The drive disengages... more

"The mower price was fair. A few dollars cheaper than brick & mortar stores that didn't have it in stock. It arrived when it was supposed to. I got one update, maybe two, regarding shipping status. I recommend."

Very Good Mower
I bought this mower after doing allot of research... I had a Toro that lasted 12 years... Went to the store and bought a Troy-Bilt, a nice one, and it was complete crap. Then looked around for the mower I had, which was discontinued. I looked online and saw this one.

My 1st impression when I got it was all the plastic it had, but after a month of wet grass mowing (Ohio weather stinks), it has been great. It blows through grass, even wet grass, and I didn't use bag... the deck wash is very... more

How Many Pulls To Start ?
I've used my mower three times.......First time, two pulls to start, one pull after that ! !
It's a reallllly great mower. I'm not a lawn mower expert, so I have limited mower experience, but I have never had a better one.

Best Mower Ever
Did a lot of research before buying this mower... first pull every time. Takes a couple of times to get used to it, but it's great for small hills and tough terrain... would definitely buy another one. l got lucky, and mine was on sale. 5 minutes and it's ready to roll..

Great Mower
I am a 58 year old woman and first time lawn mower. My husband became very ill and the lawn service rates became unaffordable. This mower was easy to assemble, just a few bolts to attach.

The self propelled feature works well for uneven terrain. Handle folds down for easy storage. It's not to heavy to maneuver. Very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Light Weight
