Cub Cadet CC500BAT

The Cub Cadet CC500BAT walk behind lawnmower is a battery powered machine that for all intents and purposes is very similar to the Cub Cadet CC500EL push lawn mower. The main difference between the 2 mowers is their power source. The CC 500 EL lawnmower is an electric mower that gets it’s power from the mains, while the CC 500 BAT is powered by a 48 volt battery. This battery obviously needs to be charged using main electricity. Most people see it as a slightly more expensive but more versatile model compared to the CC500EL as it doesn’t have a power cord restricting it’s operating range.

The Cub Cadet CC500BAT also uses a bail and switch engine starting mechanism. One of the annoying things about the CC 500 BAT is the fact that it is not self propelled. Instead it requires the operator to push it. This means that using it for cutting huge areas of grass is a big ‘no-no’ because it will get tiring quickly and there is also the risk that the battery will lose it’s charge. The tires used on this machine have industrial threads and are solid, with no inflation required. The rear wheels are slightly bigger measuring 0.2 m (8 inches) in diameter while the front wheels are 0.18 m (7 inches) in diameter.

The Cub Cadet CC500BAT lawnmower has a 19 inch, steel mower deck that consists of just one large blade. This mower deck can be adjusted from as high as 3.5 inches above the ground to as low as 1 inch above the ground over .05 inch measurements. As Cub Cadet is a top notch brand, you’ll be pleased to know that they have decided to offer the CC 500 BAT with a 2 year limited warranty so if you do have a legitimate operating problem with it in this time, you’ll be able to get it fixed for free. A 1.9 bushel bagger is able to be attached to the rear of this lawnmower.

    Year of Manufacture: 0
    Pros: Nothing outstanding but, would seem to have a decent quality in many areas.
    Cons: Charger plug in is very poor, loose. Looks like it could disappear inside the battery. The battery is junk. It never acheived a full charge. I know how to properly charge and maintain rechargeable batteries. I have many rechargeable products that have had long lives. Two years in now, eight mows on battery(it’s been ver dry here in my area) with eight recharges a number of maintenance charges and it now charges to the very minimum chargeable capacity, it’s almost dead after full charge. Two years and my battery is dead. By the way, my yard can be mowed in 10 mins. and this mower, at best, could only barely finish the job before dead.

    So, $429 for mower + $120 (pro-rated) replacement battery = $550 to mow for two years now! DO NOT BUY THIS LEMON!

    It is a disaster because of the charging issue.

    Year of Manufacture: 2009
    Pros: Quiet, powerful,fun to use.

    3 year warranty – you are going to need it!

    Cons: The plug to attach the charger to the mower is desperately poor!

    The connector is very flimsy. Because the connector is inserted from below you cannot see what you are doing and the connecting pins may not line up properly. When they do not line up, the connectors are damaged and must be replaced by factory authorized service.

    Despite the fact that we told the serviceman exactly what the problem was, it took them 4 months to determine that the problem was exactly what we said it was!

    We are bringing it in now to be fixed again!
