This is our first Cub Cadet lawnmower we have tried out on Tools in Action.  I have always heard good things about them, but it’s nice to finally try one out first hand and see it for myself.  While this really seems like a quality lawnmower, there are two things that stand out.

The first item is the way this lawnmower starts.  Instead of using a pull string to start the engine, you just have to push a button.  Yes this lawnmower is an electric start.  Cub Cadet has a small slide on battery that powers this unit to get it started.  With one full charged battery, you get 75 starts which is more than enough for a full season of mowing.  If not, it only takes an hour to charge the battery.  The second cool thing about this unit is the drive control system.  Basically the faster you walk, the faster the unit will move forward.  So as you walk, you are actually pushing forward more on the handle bar which in turn makes the unit go quicker.  If you slow your walking speed down, you will naturally not be pushing on the handle bar and the unit will slow down.  This is a very cool feature.

You can learn more by going to Costco and checking it out for yourself.
