Consumers Digest revealed in its April issue that the Cub Cadet RZT S zero-turn riding mower is once again distinguished as a Best Buy in Riding Lawnmowers. Best Buys in zero-turn riding mowers are selected based on performance, ease-of-use, and quality of construction. Other criteria considered are features and warranty. The Best Buy rating extends to all RZT S models, which includes models with 42, 46, 50, and 54 inch decks. 

“Once again earning the honor of a Consumers Digest Best Buy really reinforces the many glowing reviews given to the RZT S by owners,” said Jeff Salamon, Cub Cadet’s director of marketing. “In the fast-growing zero-turn market, we are pleased that industry experts believe the RZT S continues to offer a level of performance and innovation that is unmatched in the market.”

Also a Best Buy in 2012, the first year in market, the RZT S was the world’s first residential zero-turn riding mower with patented Synchro-Steer technology; an advancement that delivered zero-turn maneuverability with four-wheel steering controlled by an operator-friendly steering wheel. This technology transformed the residential mowing experience forever, giving homeowners unprecedented maneuverability and stability on hills, while also virtually eliminating the common problem of turfing. Also important for consumers, comfort is assured through features like cruise control and a high-back adjustable seat. Other features include a heavy-duty professional-grade engine, a 12-gauge steel frame for enduring performance, and an advanced cutting system that delivers the beautiful results of the Cub Cadet Signature Cut.

“The Cub Cadet RZT S is one of the best choices for any consumer in the market for a residential zero-turn mower,” said Rich Dzierwa, editor of Consumers Digest/

In addition to Consumers Digest Best Buy recognition, the RZT S has generated many 5-star ratings from current owners while dealers are seeing demand and awareness on the rise. “Our customers have been exceptionally pleased with the Cub Cadet RZT S. They tell us how much they look forward to mowing now,” notes Guy Clark, a Cub Cadet dealer in Batavia, NY. “The word is spreading fast, and demand has continued to increase each year to the point that we now have people coming in asking for the RZT S by name.”

Starting at $2,999 and backed by a three-year limited warranty, the RZT S remains the industry’s top best choice for homeowners with ½ - 3 acres of lawn to mow.
