I’ve owned our Zero-Turn Cub Cadet Ultima for about 6 months since the first review – the date published on the first review of Cub Cadet Ultima Series Zero Turn Mower was in the fall… and now spring is here.
Prior to working with Cub Cadet, I had researched which turn mower I was looking for. I checked out book reviews, website reviews and I knew that I wanted the Ultima for the ease of maintenance that it would give us, along with an awesome class cut. I was right. The AeroForce cutting system of this machine makes it top-notch.
Today, I wanted to give an updated review and share my three favorite features.
There is extra padding on the seat for added comfort. There are also armrests on the seat. This larger operator station with the high-back Cub Comfort™ seat, make for the most comfortable riders out there.
It also has a rubber floor mat which gives you anti-shock for your feet.
You have easy access to the deck with deck height adjustment and deck lift.
The adjustable lap bars are awesome with this residential zero turn. My wife can use it or I can use it and we just adjust it to our comfort.
According to Cub Cadet: “The RZT® L/LX Series combines the precision of responsive lap-bar controlled zero-turn handling with outstanding comfort. Thoughtful ergonomics come complete with convenient maintenance features – all designed to ensure that you’re satisfied with your rider (and your lawn) for the long run.”
The 7.5 mph ground speed of the Cub Cadet Ultima Series allows you to cut your lawn 50% faster than with a traditional mower. This is in thanks to the Kawasaki® and Kohler® engines.
It has cut my mowing time back by over 30-45 minutes. It also has a 50 inch cutting deck. The turn radius and aero force cutting system really help to get the job done quickly.
The AeroForce decks provide a flawless cut through advanced aerodynamics. By optimizing airflow it is able to eliminate clumping during discharge while increasing suction. This allows you to cut with a better bagging performance.
With the large engine and tubular design, it is a durable machine. The rubber front wheels and advanced-traction rear tires help it to feel stable, as well. I like that they aim to keep the driver safe, as well.
For example: because mowing in reverse is inherently unsafe, Cub Cadet tractors are designed to discourage the practice.
Combine all of that with the Sure-Start High-Output battery and you’ve got a durable machine.
It’s proven to deliver in every area.
