Cub CadetIn the March issue of Consumers Digest, editors proclaimed the Cub Cadet RZTTM S 42 4-Wheel Steer Zero-Turn Rider as a Best Buy in the zero-turn-radius (ZTR) riding lawn mower product category.  According to the publication, the Best Buy designation is only applied to those products that deliver exceptional value – a rating reserved for fewer than three percent of the competing models in any given product category.

Cub Cadet is known for providing break-through innovations, a reputation supported by the Best Buy rating.  The award is more highly-coveted than ever, given the sharp increase in zero-turns on the market from just two years ago.  According to Consumers Digest, 70 ZTRs are on the market for 2012 versus 26 two years ago.  After rigorous assessment of categories such as: performance, ease of use, features, quality of construction and warranty, the RZT S 42 was among two ZTRs that were recommended out of a pool of 70 models.

“Being recognized by Consumers Digest as a Best Buy is very meaningful,” said Jeff Salamon, director of marketing, Cub Cadet.  “This award is meaningful because it recognizes that Cub Cadet is fulfilling its promise of delivering better products, a better experience and better results with innovations no one else can match.”

In a growing market of riding lawn mowers, Cub Cadet revolutionized the industry with the introduction of a zero-turn riding mower equipped with both four-wheel steering and steering wheel control.  With one test drive, homeowners will experience for themselves how the RZT S 42 stands up against the competition.  Consumers Digest editors said it best: “We found that this drivetrain, when combined with this model’s steering wheel (instead of lap bars), makes this model easier to maneuver than any other model that we evaluated.”

With a price tag starting at only $2,699, the RZT S 42 features leading-edge technology and innovation previously only available on professional or higher-end residential products – making it a smart, affordable choice for homeowners with 1/3 up to 3.5 acres of lawn to mow.

The all-new RZT S 42 offers users these important benefits:
