Q: does this model have power steering? my husband has had a stroke & has difficulty turing the wheel on our cub cadet that we have now

by Cindy from Missouri on May 14, 2016

A: Cindy - sorry, but none of the riding mowers that we sell are equipped with power steering.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is this mower assembled and ready to start.
by Howard from Alabama on May 14, 2016

A: Howard - all of the riding mowers we sell are shipped in the original factory crating, and would require some degree of minor set-up before you could use it.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this machine have cruise control and now in reverse?
by Cathy from Mississippi on May 11, 2016

A: Cathy - yes, the Cub Cadet LT42 lawn tractor does have cruise control. This tractor will also mow in reverse, but you will need to activate an override on the ignition switch (where the key goes in) each time you wish to mow in reverse.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is this Kohler a twin?
by Tom from Wisconsin on May 04, 2015

A: Tom - the 18HP Kohler engine on the Cub LT42 tractor is a single cylinder engine, not a V-Twin.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is this also made with an 18 hp Kawasaki engine?
by James Dunsirn from Wisconsin on January 13, 2015

A: James - the new Cub Cadet LT42 tractor is not available with a Kawasaki engine. None of the new LT series Cub Cadet tractors have Kawasaki engines. They are all powered by Kohler engines.

Very Good Quality Mower
This mower was fairly simple to set up and learn to operate. A bit different from the manual transmission type I was used to. The build quality seems excellent, the seat is the most comfortable I have ever owned, the steering is easy and sharp in corners. It has the Kohler engine that I definitely wanted and it cuts beautifully. Overall, I couldn't be happier.

What? No Manual Or A Key?
While they shipped the Cub Cadet LT42 in a timely manner, the shipment arrived WITHOUT A MANUAL AND WITHOUT A KEY. So, I called MD they Customer Service agent said, like it happens often, "Oh, sometimes they fall out in shipment". Really? I think there are easy solutions to that, like secure the plastic bag inside the engine compartment, perhaps?

I was offered "if I am just dying to get on that mower" a choice of driving 25 miles to get a key from the closest dealer -... more

Charles Does Not Recommend This Mower
Jose, the Lawn Mower Expert
Product Expert
Charles,
Sorry about the missing key the manufacturer crate's these mowers from the factory and the key falling out is a rare occurrence, we did order the key and we show it did arrive within the 7-10 business days we confirmed with you by email. If you have any further issues please let us know and we can help you.

Great Mower
I bought this mower to replace a 10 yr. old Yard Machine that was bought used. Took me 2 hrs. to mow with my old mower . I can now mow my yard in 1 1/2 hrs. I like the mow in reverse feature . Has good easy steering . Rides a little rough but i can deal with that .

Lawn Tractor - Cub Cadet
The Cub Cadet tractor we ordered arrived at the designated time and date. The delivery person was really nice and very efficient in removing the merchandise from the truck. The Cub Cadet was packaged really well so that no damage could be done to it.

The Instructions were very clear and easy to follow. My husband and I did the pre-maintenance work and the Cub Cadet is everything that we had hoped it would be and does a lovely job on our lawn. I highly recommend this product.

Terrific Lawn Tractor
I spent hours researching lawn tractors to replace a very old Grasshopper. I came to the conclusion that the Cub Cadet XT1 was the best value for the money.

It came crated (which was easy to take apart) and undamaged. This machine started right up after only connecting the battery and filling with gas. Although the ride was a little ridged, letting some air out of the tires helped a lot. It has performed exactly as expected.

Good Machine For Money
ordered online from mowers direct and they shipped it the next day.

when it came to delivery I called the shipper and setup a delivery appt.

I took off work and waited patiently.......around 3pm I called the shipper and they said 'since you did not answer your phone we did not deliver'......they then told me the number they dialed.....it wasn't mine....the appt setter wrote down the wrong phone nbr.

a wasted day of pto used!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even though I had a confirmed appt!!!!!!

Very Good Tractor But.
My problem with purchase is it is the first piece of equipment I have bought , that did not come with did not come with a illustrated parts book.

If I knew this, I would not have made the purchase. I think this is one of the most important parts of the machine. My next purchase will have one.

So Far So Good
My Cub Cadet arrived within a week as promised, was easy to assemble once I managed to get it out of the crate it was delivered in.

The controls are easy to understand and so far it works perfectly. It is so dry at the moment and we have not had a chance to really put it to use, but it will rain again I hope.

Some Superior Features
We've had two other brands of riding mowers and this cub cadet has two real great features that neither of the others had. One great feature is the forward control and reverse on the right foot pedal instead of a stick. I've been raked off many times from low hanging limbs with my hand forward control because I was steering with my hand which is sorta essential. Another good feature is the small wheels on the deck that float across the lawn preventing scalping and streaks.
It's still new... more

Cub Hit A Home Run!!!
Cub did a great job on these! Simple to use, runs smoothly, and powerfully. Transmission has great power, and is very smooth. Steering is easy, and best of all, it mows great. You wont find a better mower for the money.
