Q: does this model have power steering? my husband has had a stroke & has difficulty turing the wheel on our cub cadet that we have now

by Cindy from Missouri on May 14, 2016

A: Cindy - sorry, but none of the riding mowers that we sell are equipped with power steering.
by Jose, Product Expert
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: What's the difference between the LT and the LX?
by Rick from Ohio on March 18, 2016

A: Rick,
The only differences between these models would be that the LX tractors will have arm rests and a front bumper. Aside from these features, the LT and LX units will perform and operate the same.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will it mow in reverse?
by Charles McCaffree from Texas on May 10, 2015

A: Charles - the Cub Cadet XT1 and XT2 series tractors all have a Reverse Mode setting on the ignition switch where the key goes. If the key is turned to this position on the ignition switch, the tractor can be operated in reverse with the mower blades engaged.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does it have a locking differential?
by Todd Bingham from Oklahoma on May 01, 2015

A: Todd - the Cub Cadet LT50 does not have locking differential. The only Cub tractor models that have the locking differential are the LX46 and the LX54.

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.

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

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.

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 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

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

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.

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

Cub Cadet Lt50 (50") 24hp Kohler Lawn Tractor
I bought this to replace an 11 year old Cub Cadet of the same model. The quality exceeded my expectations from my older model. Steering is remarkably easy and feels like power steering even though it's not.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Hard to remove from shipping palette
