Cub Cadet RZT 50
2 Star Review   By Bagadonuts on Home Depot - Aug 23, 2012   

I purchased the 1st RZT-50 in 2005,. I loved the machine and it lasted over 200 hrs. with little problems other then needing a replacement starter. However, on my 2nd purchased of the RZT-50, it too worked great for the 1st season. Starting the 2nd year, the starter, deck belt, solenoid and battery needed replacement. Then, ending year two, the RH Hydrostatic transmission went out. I now read that this is a common problem with the Cub Cadet RZT-50. I suggest that before you invest $3,000 (which is really inexpensive for a Zero turn machine) Google the RZT-50 transmission problem then decide for yourself. As for me, I turned to Husqvarana and Ariens for my tractors. Cub Cadet who once had a good name with me, seems to have really disappointed their customer base. My problem was never with HD. The machines have always worked past their specified warranty period. If all you want for your $3,000 is just 1 reasonable season, then this is your machine. Please know, that starting in the second season, each time you mow grass, you're on borrowed time.

First Hand experience
3 Star Review   By Tiago on Home Depot - Jul 19, 2012   

Ordered online to get free delivery to my home, since we do not own truck to pick up from store. shipped everything clean and neat. The very next day, i read all the instruction how to install few things. Started my bumble bee( RZT 50'', Zero turn) for test drive. I was able to steer and maneuver it nicely. After few minutes, stopped and started again and practiced. After an hour, I came back to test drive again. To my surprise, key didn't go through. I was shocked after seeing the deformed key just by starting 23times since it arrived. I am not a body builder or a muscle man to twist it hard. I handle it very carefully since its a 3000 bucks machine. Immediately called Home depot and explained the situation. The said will send a replacement Key. The Chinese proved that their factory made is always ultra low standard metals. I will once again write my review based on the experience after using it for a while.

Already having issues
2 Star Review   By Andronimo on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012   

My husband and I were so excited to finally buy a zero-turn mower and this is the model we decided on. We have mowed our 2 acre lawn 4 times without complaint, then the left side drive went haywire. We have been arguing with warranty issues since. Two weeks we have been without our mower. The mower is too new and expensive to already be having mechanical issues. Very disappointed with this mower, Cub Cadet, and Home Depot. Do not waste your hard earned money on this product.

cuts great, very reliable
5 Star Review   By Smuckie on Home Depot - Dec 17, 2011   

mines 4 years old and replaced one of the fans on the transmission (stick got to it) and the battery, does kill the grass when parked in yard so we don't do that any more and it does ride rough, could use some springs in suspension, I run my tires a little soft to help with this, still the best mower I've ever had and will buy another when this one finally dies (not soon I'm positive)

Good cut but exhaust burns grass if you stop
4 Star Review   By john on Home Depot - Nov 7, 2011   

Had a 42 rzt for years sold to neighbor and bought 50rzt.you can tell quality is down thinner deck hangers.I can't stand that if I empty the bag with mower running it will leave a burn spot in grass within the next few days.contacted warranty and the act like it the first time you have every owned a mower.I dont care what time off year it burns grass at idle.even less than 30seconds running there. my 42 rzt could run on lawn for a hour in the same spot without browning the lawn.

Great mower......except....
4 Star Review   By fishman1 on Home Depot - Nov 4, 2011   

I've had it appoximately 2 months and already have had 2 flats. Have had to get tubes put in all of them at my own expense. cleaning under the mower deck is a challenge...For the money spent, a tube in each tire should be a given...otherwise, mower cuts great....

Good product with great features and ease of operation
4 Star Review   By Browns1 on Home Depot - Sep 26, 2011   

Just used my zero turn for the first time and I love it. Cut my mowing time in half and is fun to operate. Plows thru high grass with no problem and the Kawasaki engine runs smooth and quite. One thing to check if buying assembled from the store is to make sure all bit piece parts are installed. After loading it on the trailer my son noticed missing attachment bolts for the seat. HD made it right before I departed for home.

The product works well
4 Star Review   By Tommyboy78664 on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011   

The product works well. It cut my mowing time by at least 50%. However, it does use much more fuel than my old mower, but then this machine does have two engines. I purchased an optional bagging unit. Don't waste your money. The design is inferior and I spend more time clearing the chute than I do mowing. I've read reviews that said the bagged worked well on moist grass. They reviewers must have worked for Cub Cadet/MTD. I have to go atleast 3-4 days days for the bagged to work even remotely well.

Monumental Mower!!!
5 Star Review   By Jimmy on Home Depot - Aug 10, 2011   

The best 3 features I have noticed so far are the pivoting front axle, the 4 anti-scalp coaster wheels and the extra wide discharge chute. This 24hp Cub Cadet with it's 50" deck makes my grass clippings disappear in 1 pass and it makes my yard look like a perfectly manicured base ball park. After using my mint condition 13hp 38" deck MTD riding mower for over 12 years I was more than ready to try a 0-turn mower to save time and boy did this Cub Cadet fit the bill! My mowing time went from 2.5 hours to 1.0 hour with this 0-turn Cub.

Performance on this product exceeds expectations!
5 Star Review   By Spike on Home Depot - Jul 23, 2011   

This is my first ZTR mower and it took me just minutes to get comfortable with the operation. Read the manual..a first and it was very readable and gave great instruction on operation. Was very happy with the cutting deck, power and speed at which i could cut. Also the ability of the mower to cut tall grass and discharge it with out stalling the engine. only improvement would be shocks for a smoother ride on rough ground!!!!!!! would highly recommend this mower

Not a good purchase
1 Star Review   By JohnBoy on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2011   

This is not a durable mower. I've had mine less than 4 months and I've had to repair it 5 times. I am currently inside because the guide on the deck discharge broke and is getting into the blade. I know some better than thou's out there will say it's my fault, but like most folks that would need a 50" mower, I don't have a manicured 5 acres to mow. It has it's rough places and even though I'm careful, the stinkin deck likes to grab, and the steel is so flimsy it broke. I wouldn't recommend this mower. If I had it to do over, I'd have bought another John Deere, but I fell in love with the price of this mower and all the gleaming reviews and now I'm paying for it.

Great speed, performance & quality
5 Star Review   By WeTrumpTheJoneses on Home Depot - Jun 22, 2011   

Shipping was fast and the Cub Cadet 50 zero turn has not only cut our mowing time in half, it has allowed up to expand our yard to it's full potential by easily cutting down tall grass in areas we could not go on our old rider. Great product, great brand!

Great mower so far
5 Star Review   By Browndog1 on Home Depot - Jun 18, 2011   

Great mower so far. However, the factory forgot to put grease in the left front wheel. This is my 2nd Cub Cadet Zero turn and I really like them. Although the website claims "no assembly required" It WILL take you 30-45 minutes to assemble and set everything up.

Great mower with minor flaws.
4 Star Review   By EKing on Home Depot - Jun 10, 2011   

I bought this mower this year using the free delivery. It was delivered to my door and assembled easily. Started right up. It runs and mows great. I mow between three and four acres and it has reduced my mowing time significantly. I have two minor complaints. If you are mowing over uneven ground and you're going too fast, the deck will bounce out of the height you set and you can scalp the lawn. But, you can just slow down a little. The other complaint is when using the mulching attachment, it does the job, however, grass accumulates all over the top of the deck where the belts are located and it takes a lot of cleaning to get it all off of there. If you're going to mow without a mulching attachment, or bag it, that won't be a problem. Well worth the money.

Great product
5 Star Review   By Jason217 on Home Depot - May 28, 2011   

Great zero turn mower, excellent maneuverability, clean cut and easy to operate. Kawasaki 726 cc twin cylinder engine provides plenty of power. Mowing my 2.5 acres now takes only about 1 hour 45 min down from 4 hours with my old riding mower. Quick delivery and virtually no assembly required.

Warranty not honored
1 Star Review   By LWFLDF on Home Depot - May 14, 2011   

I purchased my Cub Cadet on 3/25/2011. The gear drive is knocking and right wheel will not pull good. I have called for service repair and every time I call they say they will return my call. It has been days and I never get a call back but the same story when I call. Beware of the warranty, it is not honored!

Its Good
4 Star Review   By cubreview on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2011   

I've used it 3 times so far. It is easy to use and the yard looks great. I mow 3 1/4 acres. It used to take me about 4 1/2 hours to mow and with the zero turn I get it done in about 2 3/4 hours. I have a few trees that drop something that looks simular to an acorn, but lighter and slightly larger. The mower picks these up and throws them. Twice now, one of these things has gotten between the drive pulley and the drive belt and have caused the belt to flip off. I don't fault the mower for this and I'm able to reinstall the belt in about 5 minutes. It is something to keep in mind, however. Overall its a great mower that manuvers easy and makes mowing a little more fun... if that is possible...

3 Star Review   By cubcadet on Home Depot - Apr 18, 2011   

It isn't easy to get on and off the Mower, It Needs a grab Bar.........also if you go over unleveled ground and if the deck catches enough ground the deck will fall to the ground and you will have to reset the desired level.
