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

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
I'm 52-years-old been mowing with push mowers since I was 10 this is hands down the best mower I have ever used.

Have steep hills and it goes up with no effort amazing. Starts on first pull every time. Mulches with no clumps. Awesome mower, highly recommend.

Great Mower
Received our new mower very quickly from Mowers Direct. Easy to assemble out of the box, and started on the first pull. Love the self propel feature. Wide cutting deck and large rear wheels make it easy to navigate my yard. Great product great company.

Impressive Value
Had for many years a Snapper mower. I felt the Cadet was a much better value overall and gave it a try. It starts on a half pull, it's quiet and though the adaptive self propelled speed takes a little getting used to it now after a few mows is wonderful and saves me cutting time. The clean mulching action surpasses my Ninja dual blade system of the old Snapper.
Quite simply this Cub Cadet is a wonderful mower, no objections at all!

Great Unit!!!
So far, so good. Not a single problem with this unit! Although I have less than 10 square feet of yard, it runs like a champ. It starts on the first pull. I am completely satisfied with this model.

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

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

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.
