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.

Natural Born Hiller
I went from a Honda 3-in-1 self propelled mower to this cub cadet. Nothing against the Honda but it was front wheeled drive and was terrible on my steep inclines (which is really my fault for buying it in the first place). This Cub Cadet takes on hills like a mountain goat.

I put this together and it started on the second pull. I have done about 6 cuts with it so far and still love it. It doesn't mulch as well as the Honda's double blade but it is certainly adequate.

Mower Is Good
We bought this mower and we like it. The self propelled is a go at your own pace, and the mower starts on the first pull.

Only con is that the bagger doesn't pick up as well as I think it should. Haven't used water spout on top of the deck to clean it yet, but I'm a little old school that water and bearings don't mix
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable

Good On Hills
This mower is delightfully low weight. It starts easily every time. And goes up my hills like a trooper. And it definitely uses less gas than my previous Honda.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable
Cons: Wish The Handle Folded Up For Easier Storage

I Love This Mower
I live on an half acre with a hill and often need to drive up the slope. My old mower needed a lot of help. The Cub Cadet helps me up the hill. It slows down when I slow down. It does not dig up the lawn with the drive wheels. I do not even notice when the bag is getting full because it does not bog down. The blade is very sharp and cuts the lawn evenly at any speed. It always starts on the first pull.

Pay attention to the height position on the front wheels. I keep it on level 3 but a... more

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

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.
