It is the Cub Cadet XT2 is the most sought-after model in the XT2 Enduro Series by Cub Cadet.

I’ve reviewed several Cub Cadet mowers in the past including an XT1 mower and the one they call zero-turn mowers.

The XT2 series is a more expensive version than the XT1. Both were built on the same chassis however, some of the details were altered (more about this in the coming days).

Let’s have a look at the things we’ll be looking at this morning

The Cub Cadet XT2 Review

Feature Cub Cadet XT2
The difficulty of using More difficult due to the more precise turn radius than its peers.
Durability The average durability of the engine and transmission, but higher than the average deck strength because of reinforced steel “Aeroforce”
Maintenance Average maintenance, perhaps less than average in comparison to other peers.
Value You pay for what you pay for.
For lots of less than 10,000 sq. feet It is not recommended.
For lots less than 1 an acre Highly highly recommended
For lots that exceed 1 acre Highly recommended for up to 2 acres.

Cub Cadet XT2 Pros and Cons

Pros of the XT2

  • A powerful Kawasaki engine when compared to its rivals
  • A large, reinforced cutting deck means heavy-duty cuts
  • Be attentive to the user experience high backs for the seat armrests, the cup holder
  • New features and improvements from the XT1 which include a larger battery and front-facing brush guard

Cons of the XT2

  • It a more expensive than the others.
  • There is nothing new in the field of maintenance to reduce the amount of time needed for oil change

Cub Cadet XT2 Price

The Cub Cadet XT2 comes priced at just over $3000. It’s a substantial price and is slightly more than the typical range of similar large lawn mowers.

What differentiates this model Cub Cadet from other models is its focus on the user experience and an impressive cutting engine.

I would rate the XT2 series as a close match to an expected value. In essence, you will get what you spend for. There is value however, you’ll have to shell out for top features.
