I recently bought a cub cadet lawn tractor. Never had used one before. I had a Huscvarna and it was awful. So i switched to the Cub Cadet, downsizing from a 48" to a 42". Not sure that was a great move but it worked. I have a huge lawn. The Cub Cadet works great, the speed is great. The reverse pedal is awsome. I like the adjustable seat that others dont have. It is easy to turn sharp corners. It also has cruise control which my husband enjoys. It has a good balance to it when mowing on hills. I really like the cub cadet, we have had it for 1 season now and it has not had any problems. My other mowers would of already gave me problems. It does have a washing system so when you are done you can wash the blades under the deck. It also has more deck cutting lengths than my other. So i am very pleased with my Cub Cadet. I would recommend it to anyone.
