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.

Awesome Lawnmower
I bought this Cub Cadet to replace a well worn John Deere, and I couldn't be any happier. It always starts on the first pull, and it sure seems to climb our steep front yard well. I had to paint the wheels black to make it go faster or at least look fast.

Mower Is Non Functional
It barely ran, sped up and slowed down, was weak. Barely could cut lawn 2 times. I'm having to drive 60 miles roundtrip to get it fixed and 60 again to pick up. Should have been tested. New non-ethanol gas 90 octane. 2 mo old.
Cons: Difficult To Use, Low Quality, Unreliable, hardly runs will require 8 hours my time to get service

Works Great
It keeps up with my fast pace. The rear wheel drive gets caught and stops once in a while when a stick or something gets in the wheel. I also painted the wheels black for added speed and superior neighborhood jealousy.

Early 84 Yoa Father's Day Gift
I purchased this lawn mower for my 84 year old father. (He likes to cut grass.) The morning after delivery, I went to his home to help him put it together. Too late. He already put it together and was cutting his yard. It was great to see him not struggle. He said the lawnmower was quick, easy to use, and cut great.
Thanks.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Walk speed. Large back tires.

Great Purchase
I held off getting a mower for 3 years. I decided the money I saved could now be spent on a great mower that will hopefully last many years. This ones seems to fit the bill. The self-pacing RWD propels this mower like a dream. Buying from MowersDirect was a great experience as well. Shipping was FAST. Setup was easy. I would recommend this Cub Cadet mower, and highly recommend buying from Mowers Direct. (This is NOT a paid review. I have taken time out of my day to write this on my own.)
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Fast, Durable

Perfect For Small Yard
I have cut grass 3 times. So far so good. This mower starts great. Just pull rope and starts right up. The rear self propelled tires just about make whole mower jump up. As you walk forward it engages wheels and when you pull mower back it releases self propel mechanism. Great little mower.

Only negative on this mower is when you pull both bars to go forward it has a little pinch point, you have to keep your fingers clear.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Reliable

This Is A Great Push Lawnmower!
Delivery was fast and instructions were very good. The Cub started on the first pull and the drive system adapts to your pace.

My wife even is impressed with how easy it is to handle. The only negative I have found is the handle doesn't fold down without removing the wing bolt, otherwise it is outstanding.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Light Weight, Reliable
Cons: Storage

Strange Cut
Got the mower 2 days later than MD said it would arrive. Unboxed and got ready to run easily. Started on the first pull, and has started with one pull ever since. I have mowed my 1/2 acre lot now 4 times since it was delivered, and it has always run well. The self-propelled feature is truly "effortless" and the engine is stingy when using fuel. So, why would I return it if I could? It cuts funny - at the edges of the deck, it cuts the proper height, but it leaves a "dome" of... more

Great Product
The self-propulsion mechanism is excellent. It barely feels like you are having to push a handle! The lower cuts well, good fuel efficiency and is decently quiet. The only complaint I have is that I wish it had more power. It will sometimes get bogged down going through thick grass and stall out. Overall great product and I recommend if your yard is not too big!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Features, Durable

Impressed And Satisfied
Had a Honda overhead cam for 15 years and was disappointed when it finally cost more to repair than to buy a new one. Really researched and this Cub Cadet was the only one that I consistently found "A" reviews. So far those reviews are justified. I have run it a dozen times or so and it starts on one pull and the self propel really is great. I have 2 acres and this was to mow around trees and such but I like the self propel so well that I don't use my rider anymore. If I have a... more
