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: I have seen a few complaints about the process of driving the machine? You have to push the handle grip forwrard to go forward??? can you explain to me what i will need to do to make this thing move forward?
by Todd from Michigan on August 13, 2014

A: Todd - the drive control on the Cub Cadet SC500Z mower is located on the underside of the upper handle. To engage the drive, you squeeze the drive lever against the upper handle to engage the drive; release it to slow down or stop mower from propelling.

Excellent Mower
Great mower. It starts easily, and powers through the lawn with ease. The only slight drawback is the way the handle folds for storage (you have to completely remove a bolt from each side, then fold the handle).
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality, Powerful
Cons: Handle does not fold easily for storage

Worst Mower I've Had
I have 2 of these mowers they are nothing but junk...bought both in March 2016. One has been in shop twice for a knocking motor and transmission. The other one has a broken wheel, so they are both in shop at this time. I've had to replace cables a number of times....

Started On First Pull!
Upon receiving the mower the only thing I was disappointed in was a screw was missing that goes on the long handle bar to collapse when's storing. There was a bag with other small parts, oil and manuals, so that would have been great to put those small parts in too.
Assembly was easy, the mower started right up. Runs great and self propelled like a boss!

Exactly What I Wanted In A Self Propelled Mower
This is my first experience with a self propelled mower which took a bit of getting used to, but overall it's fine. The best feature is that tight turning radius and that's what I as after.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

Cub Cadet Sc500z
I have only used it three times so far and it has preformed great. The front casters are great and work very well. I can see where the adjustment of front wheels might be a pain for some but it truly isn't a big deal just it takes a few mins to adjust, and the design of the mower on casters there is no way to adjust the height with one lever.

I can see where you will won't to replace the wing nut as it is caste plastic around a nut. During mowing wet grass it will clog due to the drive system... more

Very Uncomfortable
I do not care for the design having to push the drive handle forward to make the mower move. It is very uncomfortable to use, if i had known this I would have selected another model.
Pros: Features, Price
Cons: Heavy

Cub Cadet Sc500z
When I received this mower, I was so excited to have the self propel. The first 2 times of use went great. Today, I could not get the mower to crank!! Very upsetting!! After changing the spark plug on this new mower, it still doesn't crank. I have been told that the coil is no good. This is one upset customer.

Throttle Cable Issues
Almost two years old. Last year the throttle cable broke. $22.00 for part and $9.00 shipping. (3-16-16). Now 11-17-16 and having to buy another. $22.00 and only $5.99 shipping. Haven't figured that out. Called customer service.

You know how that went. Don't want a refund, just let engineering know of bad parts. When the mower is running it a good mower. Parts are not good. Still getting use to rear wheel drive instead of front wheel. Popping up front wheels on take off..
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Features, Light Weight

Wrong Mower
I thought I could finish the year with the mower I had, wrong. I looked at several places for the Cub Cadet mower with no luck, so I ordered it online. When the mower was delivered the wrong mower was sent, no self propelled or any of the fancy gadgets I wanted.

I was in a situation were I had to accept it because of previous engagement at my house and the amount of time to ship the correct mower I had to keep the mower delivered. I am very disappointed because I know this will be a... more

Cheaply Made Don't Buy
I did a review after I bought it but feel compelled to do another after a full year of use.
First off the mower does start in one or two pulls but after the 3rd cut It puffs white smoke when I start it after its been sitting maybe a week between cuts.

The front casters:
The bracket on the one caster wasn't welded, and on the second time using the mower, the arm started to bending away from bracket. (I welded it)
The Bracket itself that connect the casters to the body of the mower deck was... more
Cons: Durability, Low Quality, Expensive

Smoothest Mower Ever
Third Cub Cadet for me. Not that they don't last I'm really old and my son always used them for summer jobs. If this holds up as well as the last two then everyone should have one. I've only used it about 10 times so getting to the 500 level like previous mowers will take awhile. The only goofy thing is changing the oil. Drain plug sits in a place that says it's going to be a messy job. Other than that it's hard to believe how smooth the self propelled is and it has plenty of power for the... more
