PostedMay 29, 2012
Yard Size: 1/2 acre to under acre
I have been wanting a Zero turn for several years now and have been mowing lawns as a side business for about 9 years now. I finally was financially able to start looking at Zero Turns, so I finally started doing my research. I first started out with Cub Cadet because I owned a 1330 Series lawn tractor for most of those 9 years. I looked up and watched videos on John Deer, Toro, and many more but always came back to the RZT 42. I loved the way it looked, and all the features it came on it. The Kohler Engine is awesome and would never by anything else but. I finally purchased the Cub Cadet RZT 42 and love it!! My first lawn I used it on is one of my returning customers that I have been mowing for all 9 years and this has cut my time in half or more! I started out push mowing which took me 1 hour and 10 mins. Then with my 1330 It cut it down to 45 mins... With the RZT 42 my first time doing it ive got it down to 20 mins or less! I was very Impressed with the Cut and Performance! All I can Say is, Go and get one of these right now! Thanks Cub Cadet!!
What a machine? I was going to buy a tank and for a 48" tank was $5,900. I thought on it for a few days and said why would I pay almost 6,000 dollars for one mower when I can have two. So I decided to go with a RZT and a Z-Force and still came out cheaper than I would have if I had financed one Tank.
The machine will cut some grass, I know it is a residential mower but I bought it to cut grass 3 and 4 times a week with it and it does more than I would have expected, it cut two of my yards in half the time that I was cutting them..
I would highly recommend them to anyone PLUS, Depending on where you buy them, I got a Warranty that could not be beat.
I looked around for about 6 months during the winter before deciding on this RZT42 mower, as I had put in lots of trees on my lawn and had to mow around them. This is a great, powerful mower for my 2 acres of land. Fast, maneuverable, little maintenance. Glad I got it.
I did a lot of shopping around before I decided on the Cub Cadet, I couldn't find a unit that had more features for the money. The 22hp V-TWIN gave the deck a ton of power this thing will throw clippings 15 feet! The cutting deck with the deep dome and wide opening are great! I always used to mulch, but the deck cuts everything so small now I can just side discharge and still have a gorgeous cut. Also going from my old 42" tractor to this RZT is saving me a ton of time I am out cutting maybe 1/3 as long as I used to. I am also not having to do as much trimming. I love my RZT!
The rear tires are too skinny and the pumps are too aggressive. Very easy too terf lawn. Clutch went bad in 1 year. The paddles are too sensitive causing oscillation when you hit a series of bumps. The good thing is it mows faster than a tractor.
