The Cub Cadet LT50 lawn tractor lets you enjoy caring for your lawn with confidence. This tractor combines top-performance, a professional grade engine and remarkable maneuverability and comfort.

The Cub Cadet LT50 is powered by a 24HP Kohler twin cylinder engine that delivers speeds almost as fast as a residential grade zero turn mower. A wide track and a low center of gravity provide extra traction and stability to mow a straight line on hills and inclines.

The LT50 features a... more

Best Riding Mower For The Money
I bought mine at Home Depot but wish I had bought it here. Everything else I need will be bought from here. I have recently bought the bagger system and a snow blower from these guys and I'm shopping for a generator for my new house. The price and service has been excellent.

Only issue with this tractor is that the mow deck may be uneven on a hill that requires a shift in weight distribution when you turn but it is solved by mowing at 2-1/2 that sets all support wheels on the ground.

Disappointed Customer
horrible I expected a much nicer mower than I got. I was shocked that it was basically plastic, I did not know that cub cadet had lowered their standards so dramatically. This was my third cub cadet and I was disappointed. I have already went to my local dealership and got me a real cub cadet. I will never order online again, you can't see how shoddy the product is if not in person.

I called customer service and the person argued with me about my concerns. I know more about lawnmowers than... more

Fred,
Sorry about your experience but all Cub Cadet mowers have a plastic body with some steel parts also, these mowers are belt driven just like other brands. Hydrostatic Transmission is also a belt driven system you normally do not find shaft driven models only on higher end mowers like on some garden tractors. Cub Cadet does sell other models which have better components like reinforced frames, heavy duty transmissions and steel housings but we do not carry everything they sell. We do however list under "Features" and "Specs" on the product page what kinds of components it's made of.

Cub Lt50 Lawn Tractor
While I don't expect to use this machine for 26 years like my last mower, it looks as if I should get many years of good service from the thing. The seat adjust well and is comfortable. I like the foot pedal drive but have to remind myself to set the blade reverse feature. I like the hose attachment for cleaning the deck.

Most people don't look at machines the way I do. I don't plan to buy a new mower every 2-3 years. While I hope to get good service for many years,I know that down the... more

Mower Is Excellent. Delivery Was An Issue
The mower cuts great has lots of power for our hilly terrain. We would highly recommend it. However, the delivery was not smooth. The driver had know idea what to do and couldn't load the mower onto the lift gate.

My husband had to come home from work and figure out how to get it out of the truck. Then it was dropped halfway on our grass and in the road. Could have been an inexperienced driver but the mower was a great buy.

Love It!
What used to take me almost two hours with a push mower, took me about 15-20 minutes. I was actually disappointed when I finished because I wanted to keep going. Lots of power, easy to turn, controls were straight forward. The seat is very comfortable.

Bad Purchase
I bought this model in 2012. First year it stalled frequently In longer grass. Second year it shredded my drive belt. Third year the PTO clutch burned out. I had it replaced at the end of warranty but this year the clutch acted up again. The safety switch under the seat has a connector that keeps coming disconnected and I cant even keep it connected with a zip tie.

I tried electrical tape but still not working properly. Then once I got the blades to work even after the repair at a qualified... more

Very Diappointed
I chose Cub Cadet for its reputation for reliability and longevity. What a mistake. I have a 2015 XT1 50" which I purchased from Home Depot (a mistake in itself, but not part of this review.) To be fair, the mower runs well, cuts well, is reasonably comfortable and has enough power to handle the terrain of our 0.75 acre lawn.

HOWEVER, I haven't been able to use it for five weeks now. It is sitting at the local authorized dealer, awaiting a new transmission, which is not expected from... more

Bad Mower, Worse Service
I purchased this mower 04/2015. The deck belt jumped off the first day I cut grass. The tensioner on the deck was bad from the factory. After taking the mower to the service center and waiting a week or so the mower was fixed. It lasted the rest of the season. This year I've cut grass once and the transmission went out. The transmission is on back order.

Cub, Shame on you for selling a product with a warranty you can't back! Cub Cadet needs to improve on quality control and warranty... more

Driver on delivery was super nice. He came when he said and he called an hour ahead like they said he would. Mower well worth the money and a great cutting mower as well. Plenty of power, great mower, and I recommend it for sure.

So Far, I'm Pretty Happy
I'll start this review with the bad. I have only approx. 1 hour of use on this mower so far. At 0.8 hours, the deck belt popped off randomly as I was turning the mower off. Not sure how/why it happened, but the belt popped off and the tension spring unhooked. Took about 30 mins for me to get it back up and going again. No service was required, so it's not that big of a deal, but I'm hoping this doesn't begin recurring.

Aside from throwing the belt that quickly, I am so-far very pleased with... more

Best Lawn Tractor Ever!
We had a problem with delivery in that a full size tractor trailer would not be able to back into driveway. Mowers Direct worked it out with the carrier, and mower was delivered using a pup trailer which fit easily into our driveway.

Husband loves it and especially likes the power washer attachment which keeps the blades clean for the next round of mowing. We have a very large 4 acre property, and he mows one side and then the other which keeps the mower from being overworked. So far, this... more

Rock Solid!
This mower is incredible! Got 3 ft. high weeds? Not a problem for this thing! Awesome mower, couldn't ask for better. Routine maintenance is a breeze (changing the oil, cleaning the air filter, etc.). I bought this in addition to the Cub Cadet LTX 1050 that I bought last year from Mowers Direct.

I have a lot of property to mow & needed 2 mowers. Last year's Cub Cadet mower is still going strong with 80+ hours on it. The LT 50 is the better version of last years mower. Cub Cadet took an... more

Crap
Just used my new LT50 for the first time and the belt came off after 5 minutes of use. Now getting the run around about getting someone out to fix it - (didn't buy it at Mowers Direct) but just warning you. My Craftsman worked for 3 years without fail before I had an issue - not happy.

Great Value
Bought this for my wife, loves gardening. Great value, no hassles, delivered as agreed, easy to uncrate, basically put together, started without a hitch!! Great turning radius, nice power, awesome cut!!

Our property has a slope and is also rolling - with smaller wheel base I find it a challenge but my spouse has no problem due to her smaller frame.

I have bragged about my experience! People cant believe I bought this online and with my experience... also read the owners manual...... more

Lt 50 Cub Cadet
I like the unit. Steering is great. The ease of lifting the deck is nice. It dose a good job mowing. Rear tires are too small, so the ride is pretty rough. No lawn mower or garden tractor should have anything smaller than a 23" or bigger tire on the rear to go over all the small holes in your yard.

I don't like having headlights on to mow in reverse. Sometimes companies over-think safety. I've been a mechanic for 42 years. They try to take the common sense away from the people who... more

Excellent Mower
I only have 2 hours on this mower since just received 3 days ago, but I'm very impressed. It is a very comfortable and down right a luxurious mower to sit on. The turning radius is great for a tractor and the power of the 24 HP engine is definitely noticeable with cutting my thick lawn. I have some small hills and my backyard and pasture are sloped and this mower doesn't miss a beat. I compared this with the Husqvarna 48" and John Deere D140, and really all are very similar with features... more

Dream Machine
After retiring my 10 yr old 18hp clutch type tractor mower and doing some research then giving this Cub Cadet a try I'd have to say it exceeds my expectations. Mowing is a whole new experience, a pretty good one. Love the hydrostatic and the smooth ride and power it has to zip effortlessly up some tricky inclines on my property, but best of all are two things: one, it mulches and spreads the cut grass exceptionally well so I don't get the clumpy stripes I used to, and two, it doesn't leave... more

Great Tractor
This Cub Cadet mower that I bought is fantastic. The delivery was spot on and with no hassles at all. I love how sturdy the crate is that it came in, and I'm currently using the crate for my firewood house.

The mower is flawless and cuts great. The cutting deck lowered with ease and cut through tall grass great. Thank you, Mowers Direct, for a fantastic product and fantastic delivery!

Great Mower/tractor
One of the most practical versatile mowers you can buy. Great power - able to mow at 5 mph while. Doesn't have the speed and power of a zero turn, but great for its plow and trailer attachment. Everything is easy on, easy off -- from the snow plow to the mower deck.
