Q: Jose,

Who makes the engine on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ?

Lee Lohman

by Lee R. Lohman from Virginia on July 05, 2016

A: Lee,

The engines on these units will be Cub Cadet branded MTD engines.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the Cub Cadet have a trigger handle to control speed as your review states? I thought the whole top part of the handle rotated to control speed. Also, do you know how large the gas tank is? Thanks
by Dave from Ohio on May 14, 2016

A: Dave - the Cub Cadet SC500EZ uses the Cub Cadet Premium Drive Control system. The premium drive control is located on the upper handle and is used to engage the drive. Pushing the control forward will engage the drive. The farther the control is pushed forward, the faster the mower will propel. Once pressure is released from the control it will return to the neutral position and the drive will be disengaged. The gas tank holds 24 fluid ounces of gasoline, so about 1/5 of a gallon.

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is the height of the handle adjustable? I am 6'2" and if the handle is too low and I have to bend over to push it hurts my back.
by Rick from Kentucky on April 23, 2016

A: Rick - the actual height of the handle on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ mower is not adjustable. However, you can make a small adjustment to the PITCH of the handle (the angle at which the handle comes off the mower), which would make a difference in how high or low the handle is off the ground. For someone your height, you'd want to set the pitch of the handle to the highest position.
by Jose, Product Expert
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.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: HOW DO YOU ADJUST CUTTING HEIGHT ...Wheel height or deck adjustment. I don't see any way to adjust rear wheel height.
by Eb Lane from Arkansas on March 26, 2016

A: Eb - the cutting height of two front swivel wheels is adjusted on each wheel individually. There is a lever just below the left rear wheel that is used to adjust cutting height for both rear wheels together
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the cub cadet sc500ez locking system for front wheels have to be done manually, and if so how difficult is that, or an it be done with the switch of a handle
by Rita from Missouri on March 24, 2016

A: Rita - the front swivel wheels are locked manually using a lock pin on each wheel. It's a pretty simple process. There is no mechanism for locking the front swivel wheels on the handle.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the mower have a blade disconnect or blade override? Does the handle fold? Thanks
by Dennis from North Carolina on July 25, 2015

A: Dennis - the Cub Cadet SC500EZ does not have a blade override system. And the handle does not fold over either.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this have a recoil start for backup
by Derek from Wisconsin on June 27, 2015

A: Derek - yes, the Cub Cadet SC500EZ does have a recoil starter in addition to the electric start
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Out of the box, does the battery need to be charged for 12 hours?
by Jim from Washington on August 30, 2014

A: Jim - yes, you would need to charge the on-board battery on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ before you would be able to use the electric start feature on the mower. The battery does not come fully charged as it's shipped to us from Cub Cadet.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Cub Cadet SC 500 EZ (21 Inch.) : - Can the front swivel wheels be locked in straight forward?
- Is there an extra cost for right hand side
dischgarge?
Thank you. Walter Debusschere

by Walter Debusschere from Michigan on July 31, 2014

A: Walter - yes, the front caster wheels can be locked in a straight ahead position by simply re-positioning the lock pin on each caster wheel. The mower comes with the side discharge chute cover.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the battery need periodic charging or does the engine have a charging system to keep it charged? Is this a sealed battery or does it require periodic maitenance (distilled water)?
by Ken from Idaho on May 10, 2014

A: Ken - the battery on the Cub Cadet SC500EZ requires periodic charging with a 12 volt charger that comes with the mower. The battery is a sealed 12 volt battery.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What size wheels are on it?
by Carol from Missouri on April 19, 2014

A: Carol - the Cub Cadet SC500EZ mower has 7" front wheels and 8" rear wheels.

Great Mower
I am very happy with the mower with the exception of the condition of the box when it arrived! The box was torn and battered .The battery cover had fallen out of the box! That being said the mower was intact for the most part and undamaged. Very nice mower and seems to cut very well!

Please Don't Buy The Cub Cadet Sc500ez 21''
It has been 2 months since I purchased this mower and it has been downhill ever since. The mower starts on the first or second pull when you first start but after that every time you stop to empty the bag you have to wait 5 minutes or so to restart. The electric starter is worthless. If there was a lemon law that covered lawn mowers this one would certainly qualify. As for taking it to a dealer to have it fixed, they said to take it back where I bought it. Go figure. Worst 500.00 dollar... more

Cub Cadet Push Mower
This is a great push mower and worth the purchase price. When it arrived here, just had to install the push handle and collection bag. Very nice cut and easy to maneuver for all the in and out places our riding mower couldn't get to. I recommend this mower and Mowers Direct for any of their products!

Works As Advertised
Everything arrived intact. The setup instructions were a little vague, but I managed to figure them out. After the battery was charged, I pressed the button and it started right up. Later, I tried the pull start and found it so easy that I wondered why I bothered with the electric.

The "adjust to your own walking speed" feature really does work as advertised. When I was growing up my Dad always had self propelled mowers and I always hated them because the available speeds were... more

Love This Mower
I have just under an acre in the North Texas heat. I had a pull start push mower that wore me out after each mow. Now I finish faster and can't wait to mow again. I wanted this to be the last mower I bought. Simple to start. Easy to walk behind.

I am tall and walk fast. This mower goes as fast as I want to go without pushing it. Cuts like going through butter. I should have made the switched to this mower 10 years ago! Told my wife I should sign up to mow the neighbors yards.

Highly Recommend
I am a 64-year-old woman with health problems. Despite that, I very much enjoy taking care of my yard. This mower always starts, is fairly easy to maneuver and rear wheel power drive are just what I needed.

My previous mower was a disappointment!!! The front wheel drive-assist only lasted 1 season. The axle gear is metal, the gear inside the wheel plastic, so the gear teeth of plastic were quickly stripped out.

I researched this mower on Consumer Reports' website, was pleased with... more

Riding On Rails...
This mower is a purchase after I had returned a 2015 Craftsman mower with electric start to sears and started looking for a better option.

This mower blows it away in performance and quality.

Couple things to note that I didn't know until I purchased it.

1) the front wheels lock into place to keep them from swiveling, great unknown feature. Un lock them quickly by pulling up on the brass hooks on top of the wheels.

2) Changing the height of the front wheels, not that easy. You take... more

Great Mower!
Did a lot of research and finally found and decided on this Cub Cadet. Good price for the quality. Quick, free shipping, although the box it was shipped in wasn't very ship worthy. Top was all open when it arrived but the parts were all intact and there was no obvious damage, thankfully. Really easy to put together.

Charged the battery for the specified time period and it started right up with the electric key start. No more pulling! As noted by a previous reviewer you will need to... more

Almost A 4.0 Grade
I am age 81 and still enjoy creating a beautiful lawn every year. My 20-year-old Lawn Boy was still doing a good job, but was pretty tired. This Cub Cadet SC500EZ has reduced my efforts by probably 40%.

The swivel wheels get credit for about half of that reduction, and the electric start the other half. The under-body cleaning port was a great idea, prompting me to do a thorough job on the whole mower, after each mowing. One complaint: I would prefer an easily interchangeable cutting blade,... more
