Cub Cadet 173cc OHV engine 19 in deck

A really nice walk behind mower. My husband and I just got this lawnmower at the end of spring this year, as our old one finally gave out.

It is mainly my job to keep the yard up since I am home with kids but this machine is easy to use, and even better easy to start.

I loath standing in the yard pulling the cord repeatedly trying to start some mowers. So far with this one its easy just start her up and go. It cuts easily and well and is easy to manuever though the yard and around my raised garden.

It is rear wheel driven which seems to make hills so much easier on the person doing the lawn mowing. It also comes with a bag so no need to mow then rake which is always a bonus. It is height adjustable which is just great being my husband and I are more than a foot different.

Many mowers seem to be one size fits all and with a large yard (5 acres) its nice to have something that just gets the job done and is easy to move for me. The machine also has the "sure start" guarantee and can be picked up at quite a few retailer.

I would recommend this one as a great push mower, and can't wait for next summer when we finally up grade to one of this brands ride on mowers.

Cub Cadet - Not Made in America
by: Anonymous

For those who have come here trying to find reviews of Made in America machines, please check the original source to find... that the engine is made in China. I called Cub Cadet (aka MTD) to find out. The sales guys was nice but really nervous and indeed had to admit that the engine was manufactured in China.

What a freaking shame. An American company that prides itself on locally owned, locally built has sold out to the Chinese too.

Some will say those mfg's are doing what's best for the stock holders, I say the government needs to make importing this cheap junk fiscally more difficult. Further more, for those that say we shouldn't use tariffs; why in the world not? China makes it virtually impossible to import foreign goods, as does EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY that sends there cheap junk over here.
