Cub Cadet CC46ES

The Cub Cadet CC46ES self propelled lawn mower is a step up from the likes of the Cub Cadet CC500 and the Cub Cadet CC550 lawnmowers. This is for a number of reasons, but mostly due to the change in size of the mower deck on the CC 46 ES. The mower deck has a cutting width of 21 inches and is constructed from steels to prevent any deflections. It is a front wheel drive machine that is powered by it’s Cub Cadet engine which has a displacement of 0.173 liters. This engine can be started by using the pull cord, recoil system or by an electric starter system.

Unlike other Cub Cadet lawnmowers, the wheels on the Cub Cadet CC46ES lawnmower are all the same size at 0.2 m (8 inches). These wheels are not inflatable and are far less soft that the wheels that you’ll find on Cub Cadet ride on lawnmowers. Instead they are hard rubber with industrial threads. The bagger attached to the back of the CC 46 ES is capable of holding up to 2.5 bushels of grass. But if you do not want to use a bagger, you can always just mulch the clippings or discharge them out the side instead.

The mower deck on the Cub Cadet CC46ES can be raised from 1 inch to 3.5 inches above the ground over 9 different increments allowing the operator to practically always get the cutting height he wants. The handle bars on the CC 46 ES are fold-able which means that after you have finished using it, you can reduce it’s size for storage. All in all you will find that this self propelled lawn mower is very adequate for cutting lawns up to 1 acre in size. Anything larger than this though will probably require a ride on tractor lawn mower.

One Review of the “Cub Cadet CC46ES”

  1. Lorin Derby says:

    I am repairing this mower for a friend. I own Honda mower,about the same size and 25years older. This Cub is exhausting to use compared to the rear drive Honda. To turn a corner with the Honda I just push down and let the rear wheels drive it around. With the Cub, you push the handle down and then fight it around the corner. I would not take this mower as a gift!
