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

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."

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

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.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight, High Quality

Would Think Again About Buying This One
The day we received it the plastic broke on the marker for 1 that you raise the height of the grass. I know we will not cut it that short but it shouldn't have broke.

Last week when we were cutting the screw came out of the side of the top that hold the yellow plastic to the side rail and of course it was lost in the grass and can not be found. The grass bag does not hold much. We had an old cadet for a long time and it was a lot better than this one, It was made of steel.

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

Self Propelled Model
I received my mower in the window of time as promised. I have used the mower 4 times now and it does a good job. Using the gear handle is a bit cumbersome, but after the second time mowing my lawn, I'm starting to get the use to it.

When my mower arrived, there were several loose parts in the bow and one of the mounting bolts was lodged in the rear wheel drive shaft. I thought I was going to have to send it back, but after about an hour of work, I was able to dislodge it and extract it from... more

To Early To Give A Review But Seems To Be A Good Mower....
The reason I bought this mower is the power drive set up. It is just like the Lawnboy I have had and used for years. The self drive is activated by pushing the handle forward and it moves the same speed you choose to walk. So, no levers to fold an uncomfortable hold with your hands. It appears to be well made and built. Only used once so time will tell.
