I have a Cub Cadet XT2. It's going on two years with no complaints.
If you have a Cub Cadet dealer nearby, you can get more options than a big box store. Our local Tractor Supply only carries the XT1 machines. After reading several not-so-rosy reports, I was leary about getting a Cub, but I'm quite satisfied.
Good luck.

Iíve had 2 cub cadets, and loved them both. When I bought a new mower last summer, I passed them by, because the Cub residential mowers are now made by MTD. I wanted something better, without going into the $5,000 and up bracket, so after a ton of research, I went with a Hustler. I couldnít be happier.

For almost two years now I have been mowing my Son-in-laws lawn (1/2 Acre) using his Huskvarna. Its only 42Inch cut but it has a lot of power and has not missed a beat. If you want a top of the line mower go with Kubota. My Son has on and it is a beast that will probably last a long long time.

My vote is for the John Deere. Beware the Deere's sold at the box stores are not Deere's, they're just licensed with green paint and logos. Whether you go Deere' Kubota, Husky, or whatever- go to a reputable Lawn & Garden shop and get the real deal. You'll pay more for a Deere or Kubota, but the quality gain is worth it.

My wife and I are in our 70's and had riders for years mowing our acre of grass. About 15 years ago I bought a 52" hydro walk behind. You couldn't pay us to go back to a rider.

Your choice of dealer is as important as your choice of brand. I chose JD and got one model bigger than I thought I needed. 11 years later I'm glad I did.

Word of caution on Z turn mowers. The flatter your yard the better they work.

Another happy Cub Cadet owner. XT2. Two years, no issues, except when my son drove it into a deep rut and damaged the blade. Stay away from box stores. Find someplace that sells and services their own machines,

Nothing runs like a Deere

Bought mine 15 years ago and it is still running great. No problems, just routine maintenance.

Went with Cub Cadet (Z-Force) mid-quality 60" zero turn using a steering wheel instead of the joy-sticks. Has a welded deck (not stamped), two fuel tanks and the Kawasaki engine which is highly rated although more expensive. Does a great job of cutting and handles steep areas with ease. Cuts better than my "real" John Deer.
