  5 Questions
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: Hi Joe. Can you tell me the total width of this mower with the double bagger installed?
by Kevin from New Jersey on May 09, 2016

A: Kevin - with the bagger installed, this Cub 42" zero turn mower would be approx. 55 inches wide.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the steering tilt?
by Daniel from Minnesota on April 28, 2016

A: Daniel - the steering column is tilted all the way back for shipping. Once the mower is un-crated, you can set the steering column to one of two positions. However, once you select a position, the steering column is secured in place with two bolts, so it will not tilt or move after the initial set-up without removing these two bolts.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have a side hill that is about 10-15 degrees. Would this mower be able to handle mowing it down the sideslope or up and down the hill? The hill is a smaller part of my acre property but want to make sure to get a mower that can handle that hill. Was not sure if the steering wheel compared to the bars made a difference in the control?

Thanks for any input in advance!

by Brandon from Georgia on April 17, 2016

A: Brandon - yes, the steering wheel style zero turn mowers are much more effective for mowing hills and inclines since the front wheels are on a true steering mechanism and don't swivel independently like they would on a lap bar style zero turn. Mowing a hillside or slope is one of the main reasons for choosing a steering wheel style zero turn mower. A slope of 10 to 15 degree's is well within the operating specs for a steering wheel style zero turn. I think one of these would be ideal for what you are describing.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: does it cut in reverse
by Amando from New York on April 01, 2016

A: Armando - yes, the Cub Cadet RZT S42 mower will mow in reverse

Cub Cadet is known for providing break-through innovations. The Cub Cadet RZT S42 helped revolutionize the industry with it's four-wheel steering and steering wheel control. This model's steering wheel (instead of traditional lap bars) makes it easier to maneuver than a traditional zero turn mower.

The Cub Cadet RZT S 42 offers users these important benefits:

Nice Mower
I bought my rzt s42 from home depot in 2014. It has the Kohler 7000 engine. I originally purchased the steering wheel model because of some hills on my property. The belt popped off in the first 2 hours of mowing. I had to figure out how to get it back on correctly. I quickly figured out that if you are turning tight around a tree that it is best to go a little slower. If the wheel gets caught, and you stay in the gas, the belt will slip off easily.

Once I got the hang of keeping the... more

Not Happy With The Warranty
I purchased my RZT 2.5 years ago from and it comes with a 3 year warranty. WRONG it comes with a 3 year or 120 hour warranty.

After the first year it started messing up with the steering. I took it in and they said a steering control piece was bent and they just bent it back. Well, the same issue just occurred and I took it in. The mechanics say it is not the same piece that is bent as last time and because I have 124 hours on it CubCadet (MTD) is denying the claim.

I have 2 mowers and 1... more

Fantastic Mower
I had a Cub that my father had given me and it was time to update that mower was 12 years old and still worked but I needed something new. This new mower was delivered on time in great condition.

And runs like a dream I'm sure I'm going to enjoy many years of mowing with the new mower. My neighbors are jealous so I have offered to mow their lawns :)

Great Mower! Sturdy And Easy Maintenance
This mower is quite a step up from what I have previously owned. Most Iíve ever spent on a mower, but itís good to know where the $$ went. Very solid driver. Zero turn is precise and works as advertised. Canít believe how easy the deck is to remove, the oil is to change, everything is accessible. Read the manual or check out how to videos at Cubís site for reference. Really struggled with pulling the trigger on this buy, but glad I stepped up a little more (for my budget) and got what I... more

Awesome Mower!
I purchased this mower just over a month ago. I have been able to use the mower about 6-8 times already. Delivery was extremely easy and came very well packaged on a skid. Tear down didn't take long at all and had it rolled off in no time. Minimal assembly was required to put the steering wheel on and more and basic tools were needed. Instructions were well detailed and thorough and gave you everything needed to get started.

Once assembled and battery connected, I put the keys in the... more

Finally Did It!
I was concerned that the price of the Cub Cadet RZT S42 was too expensive. Well, now that I have one, let me say it is worth every penny. What really surprised me was how much time is saved by very little backing up.

With my lawn tractor I had to back up at every turn. With the zero turn you just make a right angle without backing up. It has cut my mowing time almost in half, which I would have never believed before purchase.

Not knowing anything about Mowers Direct I was a little... more

I Would Buy It Again.. Your Wife Will Mow The Lawn And Love It.
Cruise sucks. Trips out on sharp turns. Uses more gas. Set rich, but starts right now. Deck lift. $50 dollars is to get it off the truck. I didn't know that. Need to explain that more.

Cotter pin lost, so rod dropped. I put it back on and found it took tension off main belt when brake is locked down. Really good. Four wheel with steering wheel is fantastic. Better for seniors like me.

Assembly a snap. Steering wheel, seat, grass spreader, hook up battery. Tell the people what to... more

Cub Cadet Mower
The first two times my husband mowed with his new Cub Cadet mower he was pleased with it. The third time he mowed a rod that controlled the forward and reverse pedal came loose and fell to the ground. The mower would not move.

My husband and a friend spent 4 hours trying to put a cotter pin in the end of the rod. They had to jack it up with a big jack. We are not sure it it ever had a pin in it or if it came out that soon. We were unhappy that this happened to a brand new mower.

Mulching Kit
I've had no problem with the mower, it works great, and I would recommend it to anyone, but the mulching kit stinks.You have to modify the deck. The hole that accepts the stem, from the mulching kit is too high. I had to drill a hole 3/4" below the one that's there to make it work. Now the kit fits inside the rim.
