Great Mower!
After reading reviews and researching for the mower with good quality plus value. The mower starts right up, cuts good, and great self propel.
Pros: Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Not Pleased.
Just got it. It's assembled and started right up and cuts very nicely. I assumed that you could set the drive bar in one position but it pivots back and forth as you mow. It never feels like you have a firm grip on the machine because your hands and wrists are constantly moving back and forth. I have a lot of pain in my wrists after mowing my small yard. Either I'm doing something wrong with my machine (please tell me) or this machine is not for me. The big black and yellow plastic 'shield'... 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."

Hmmm What To Say, What To Say
I Love it. Well I love it right now. I've used it 3 times and it's owned up to what has been said, "starts first crank". I love it from the color to the way it's built like the front handle to lift, the rear wheel drive. It actually is enjoyable cutting the yard. Thanks Mower Direct and Cub Cadet. I'll be shopping your way for the next product I need!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Features, Easy To Store

Why'd I Wait So Long?!?
For the last year or so, I've been mowing my property with a reel mower. At first, I loved the novelty of it but as mows took longer and longer (anywhere from 3-5 hours, dependent on the heat and number of beers consumed) the fun aspect went away.

I finally had enough and broke down and purchased the Cub Cadet SC500 HW. It always starts on the first pull and gives a nice clean cut. The pace mechanism is pretty nice, although just a touch too fast at full throttle. Now I can get my lawn done... more

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

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

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

Light Weight But And Easy To Operate
We have several acres that need mowing and we needed an addition to our riding mower. When I got this mower I was so surprised that it was so easy and safe and cuts beautifully. As a woman, I would recommend it to anyone. The only thing is that it would be nice to have the option of an electric start.

Yes -- And Not So Sure !
Mower arrived in perfect condition and once unboxed, assembly was duck soup. After oil and gas added, mower started with the first pull. Used just twice so far and it is cutting and mulching as advertised. Now for the --not so sure part.The bag capacity is small, so depending on the size of the area your mowing will determine how many trips you make to dump the bag. The handle used to propel the mower forward is a radical departure from the mowers I've ever used. I find a bit awkward to press... more

Hubby Volunteers To Mow Lawn!
We bought this as a replacement for a name brand mower that we ended up calling names because of its tempermental attitude. This mower runs circles around the other. It mows our large lot in 30 minutes as opposed to 2 hours previously. It mulches great, the self propelled feature is superior and the hose clean out is great. Would highly recommend it to others.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store, Takes Slopes Like A Champ
