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.

Not Much Lift
After owning a Honda mower that had throttle problems, I decided on the Cub Cadet . I've used it 3 times now, and it has a problem lifting the grass blades to cut them all. I inevitably have to go back over an area. It doesn't matter how slow I walk or how quickly. It doesn't matter if I'm mulching or bagging.

Instead of taking me less time with the self-propelled feature, than my old push mower, it takes me a bit longer because of going back over or having to make the path of the mower,... more

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.

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

Awesome Machine
I don't generally write reviews about products, but this one I just had to say a few words. I had an old Toro Mower that I have been babying along for the past couple of years. This spring, it finally gave up the ghost. After extensive research I decided on this mower and Boy! am I glad that I did. There is just nothing negative that can be said about it. It arrived as stated, delivery was quick. Set up was easy. Out of the box, add gas and oil, one pull and mow the lawn.

Best Purchase I've Made All Year!
I did a LOT of online and in-person research when making my decision. I would buy this mower again without hesitation. I also really appreciate the Mowers Direct website. It provided all the information I needed, helped me compare mowers and the purchase/delivery experience was flawless. Thank you for the great service!

This mower exceeded my expectations from day one and there are a lot of things I need from a mower. I have two hills, a very bumpy lawn surface, and many trees/flower... more

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

Great Mower, Terrible Bagging
My Honda quadracut just quit midsummer and I needed a new one. This cub cadet cuts great, never bogs down and is kinda fun to operate. It mulches well also. I am a bagger though and this is one of the worst. It will only fill the bag 1/2 full and the grass seems to stop up in the chute. I mow twice a week so I am talking little bitty pieces of grass also.i would recommend this without hesitation if you are a fan of mulching.

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
