  • Wide cut, but narrow performance

    Sep 6, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good engine, comfortable, good controls
    Cons: Weak chassis design, high maintenance, low cut quality, not good for terrain

    Summary: I have about 6 acres to mow in NE Texas- mostly open, but some good ruts, a few slopes, lots of little ups and downs. In the spring, we're fighting Johnson grass that can get tall pretty quickly (but not thick)- in the summer it's mostly Bermuda, an easy ... read more

  • Cub Cadet SLT 1554 Does well for the price

    Pros: Powerful Kohler engine, big deck, comfortable
    Cons: Poor traction, Steering components wear quickly, Wish it was faster.

    Summary: I purchased my Cub Cadet SLT 1554 used from a dealer and only paid about $1,100 for it with less than 50 hours on it. I mow 2.5 acres of mostly flat lawn with many trees and shrubs. I've used it for about 5 years now and it generally mows well. There is ... read more

  • CUB CADET = POS

    Pros: NONE: DO NOT BUY THIS CUB CADET OR ANY CUB CADET.
    Cons: You name it, since there is nothing positive everything must be negative.

    Summary: I bought a C.C. SLT1554 at a local dealer that sells high end commercial mowers, so i thought I was doing the right thing by buying local and from an American company.  Boy was I wrong, in the two years I have had the tractor, it has been in the ... read more

  • Regrettable Purchase

    Jun 1, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Engine, Comfortable Ride, Great Cutting with Great Width
    Cons: Poor Drive Train Design (critical factor), Not enough space between tires and fender for chains.

    Summary: Like most, I was attracted to the large mowing deck, the horsepower, and all of the wonderful attachments that Cub Cadet promotes for this vehicle. While the tractor mows extremely well, I believe that 2-3 years is all this machine can handle on my 5 ... read more

  • A useless hunk of junk

    May 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Not really any, except that they finally took it back.
    Cons: Everything, run away and don't look back!!!!

    Summary: I bought a GT 1554 back in September of last year for $2899, and regretted every minute since today.(I'll get to that in a bit). I had only 10 hours on it, 2 sets of blades and 2 sharpening's. The lack of traction was unreal. I have a hilly 1 acre ... read more

  • Very Impressive, Minor issues easy to correct

    Jul 10, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Handles very challenging landscapes, high mower housing adjustments, comfortable seating, good hand holds
    Cons: Odd pedal ergonomics but adaptable

    Summary: I have about 2 1/2 acres to mow and very little is flat. Many rolling hills, beautiful to look at but very hard on mower's hydrostatic transmissions, mower housing and blades. Previous mower was a Stanley 52" cut. Three years of constant hill climbing ... read more

  • A great machine for the money, highly recommended!

    Jul 3, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Comfortable to drive easy to manuever GOBS of power much better quality than similar machines
    Cons: A minor complaint is that the trailer hitch area needs to be reinforced

    Summary: All you need to do is compare this to anything else in the price range and I think you will agree this is a far better value than the others. This is my 3rd Cub Cadet. Some of the "purists" out there say this is not really a Cub Cadet anymore, since it ... read more

  • Nice comfortable tractor. some engineering issues

    Nov 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Big deck, great mower, comfortable ride, powerful motor, easy oil change
    Cons: Messy oil filter change, Speed/direction pedal ergonomics, difficult snowblower mounting, crappy manual

    Summary: This tractor does a great job mowing. It has lots of power and mows smoothly and leaves a nice even cut. The big deck is nice. The seating position is comfortable although getting on and off is a little tight for a large person. Biggest negative is ... read more

  • ALMOST EVERYONE SHOULD OWN A SUPER TRACTOR

    Aug 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: LARGE DECK, GOOD MOTOR, TIGHT TURNING.
    Cons: HEAVY DECK TO LIFT. LIGHTS ON ALL THE TIME. MOW IN REVERSE FEATURE.

    Summary: WHEN I WENT LOOKING FOR A NEW MOWER I NEEDED A BIG MOWING DECK, HOWEVER LIKE MOST PEOPLE I DID NOT HAVE A LOT OF MONEY TO SPEND. MY NEW MOWER WOULD BE TAKING THE PLACE OF AN OLD INTERNATIONAL CUB WITH A 60" DECK. SINCE THE CUB CADET SUPER TRACTOR HAD A ... read more

  • Big mower with issues

    Jul 12, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Big deck, good motor, nose roller, all the most necessary features.
    Cons: Gas hog, slow, poor ergonomics, too tall, difficult for small people to use.

    Summary: Update 5/2012: After 7 years, the drive belt gave out. No big deal, just a maintenance item, right? No, the manual says take it to your dealer, "special tools required" (impact wrench), but that's just the beginning. If the engine drive pulley is ... read more

    Cons: higher lift on deck

    Summary: I've used my SLT 1554 under the toughest conditions... mound systems, stumps 2 acre yard. This bad boy handles it all. This work horse is bigger better and stronger than any tractor in that price range... period. Not sure what ... read more
