Was So Impressed, I Mowed My Lawn Twice!
My previous mower has been a reliable unit, but over the last few years, the self propel has stopped working and most recently, the height adjustment on the front wheels broke for the second time and it just wanted to turn right all the time. After that happened on Memorial Day, I said to myself it was time to replace it. I had entertained the idea of replacing it last year, so I had already compared units and knew the mower I wanted, so shopping around wasn't necessary. A local Big Box Store... more

Fine For Ideal Conditions
I've used the mower 3 times now and in my opinion there are a few issues with the design of the machine that you may want to consider before making a purchase.

First, and most important, the surface you use to impel the machine is also the steering surface. Not a problem if your yard is smooth, flat and relatively free of obstructions (trees, bushes, ornamental rocks etc).

But if your yard is bumpy you will find that the impeller/steering mechanism bounces and flops around considerably.... more

"The only drawback is the lack of a return policy. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining, I knew that going in. I took a gamble that I'd like the machine but it didn't work out for me. Had I liked the mower I'd feel like I got a great deal. As it is I am now stuck with a machine that I don't like and that doesn't really meet my needs. So I have to sell it for a loss and a get a new mower. Unfortunately now I don't want to take another chance on getting a mower on line. It's back to bricks and mortar for me."

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.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Fast, Quiet

Great Mower
Have owned Toro and Honda for past 20 years. This is by far the better machine. Easy start, one pull right out of the box. Mulches like no other, even when taller or thicker grass, doesn't leave that annoying strip that doesn't spread out evenly. the propulsion speed handle takes a mowing or two to get used to, but it really works well.

No regrets.

Great Machine With Only One Flaws!
This Cub Cadet performs great but has an annoying flaw. The bag seems to clog almost always before the bag is even close to full. All the other features are great and it runs strong and moves with power and ease.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Only Con I Would Say Is The Bag Clogs Up Very Easy

If You Can Walk, You Can Mow
Bought this for my sister with a large yard. When I tried it, I was amazed. Starts on first pull. Self propel is amazing. If you can walk, you can mow... As this mower takes near zero effort to push. What I found also as a great bonus is the ability to push and trim from one position just with the self propel, around trees, etc. Will buy another for my daughter!!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations

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

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
