  1 Question
Q: Hi Joe, I have a fairly steep hill beside my pond that I need to mow, been doing it with a 42 yr old LawnBoy that has finally died. I prefer to mow across the slope to avoid slipping into the pond. Will this roll over easily, is it top heavy? Also, will the slope cause lubrication issues with the engine? I didn't have to worry about that with a 2 stroke engine. And finally, does it have a five foot long pull rope like the Swishers (short arms)? Thanks!! Beck
by Becky Cashdollar from Indiana on April 22, 2015

A: Becky,

As long as your slope is not more than a 15 degree incline, you should not encounter any issues with lubrication of the engine. The engine is positioned in a way that the weight is evenly distributed so the unit will not easily roll over. The recoil rope will be the standard length that all walk behind units are equipped with.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you and have a great day!

The Cub Cadet 25A-262J710 is designed to make short work of thick weeds and overgrown areas that a mower would either not be able to handle or would be restricted by the deck.

The Cub Cadet 25A-262J710 is powered by a premium Cub Cadet 159cc autochoke engine let's you tackle the tough stuff without worrying about clogging. This unit is great when you have areas too large to cut with a handheld trimmer.

An adjustable height cutting head allows for easy adjustment from 2-3/8" to... more

Love It!
Lightweight, easy to set up, easy to transport. Started right up every time (2 pulls).Went thru brush and grass much denser than I expected. I recommend eye protection-most debris went out the side, but the tallest grass whipped around a bit. Strings are very easy to change by one person. Strings seemed to break when I hit trees and stumps (not recommended), but hacked thru the 3' high grass easily. Oil was very dirty after 5 hours of use (2 tanks of gas) so follow the advice and change it... more
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight
Cons: oil plug location

A Trooper!
We were a little concerned that it was not self propelled as we have very uneven property, however my wife can tear through our acreage as well as I can. We are amazed at the power and maneuverability and thrilled with the results of our mowing. Finger to thumb sized shrubbery trunks may break the string, but it has chopped through most everything like a trooper. It is definitely the pit bull of gardening devices.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: replacing string

Love This Machine!
I am a widow. I live alone on 5 acres of land. I have a lot of weed whacking to do. It was always hard on me before. I had other walk behind trimmers but they were hard to start up . This new one starts up first time...so easily. Even an older lady like me has no problem. It makes my work so much easier. I'll never buy any other kind.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality

Great Machine
I have owned a couple of these walk behind weed eaters and will only use walk behinds due to me being a woman and a small woman at that. Regular weed eaters are too cumbersome for me. Compared to the other brand I have used, the Cub Cadet is powerful and easy to push and cuts like a champ. I would definitely recommend this product. I just wish these things weren't so darn expensive! But I guess you get what you pay for!!!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Fast
Cons: Expensive

Brush Can't Hide From The Cub Cadet St 100
Right out of the box, this Cub Cadet ST 100 fired right up on the first pull and always does. This thing will eat through almost any of the toughest high weeds and brush. It makes easy work out of field mowing at a fantastic price! Highly recommended.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

This String Trimmer Is Great!
Power full, easy to use. Love it. Cleared my property of heavy bush in the first day I received it. Would really recommend this string trimmer for its power and ease of moving around with it's large wheels. Starts with the first pull.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, High Quality

Liking This Trimmer
This is a really nice trimmer after you get used to using it. Starts up just like the website says, one or two pulls max. This unit will cut through just about anything as I can testify! I destroyed a self-watering planter because I got too close. I think if the line would hold up you could cut down tree saplings pretty easily.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Light Weight, Quiet
Cons: Expensive, Difficult To Use

Solid
This is a thoughtfully designed, well built, solid tool. Starts right up with sufficient power to work through tall thick wet grass and light brush on our land. Moreover so far seems to sip the gas. Unit is well-balanced over the wheels -- the larger diameter wheels being helpful in moving across uneven land. Cutter line easy to replace. Offset spindle provides flexibility and good control. My first Cub Cadet piece of equipment and so far I am quite impressed.
Pros: Reliable, Price, Durable, High Quality

Robert,
There should be instructions in the owner's manual for this. If you click on the tab above that says 'Specs' and then look on the right side of your screen, you can open and download a copy of the owners manual. Please give us a call if you need any additional assistance. Thank you!

Could Not Be More Pleased
Unboxed the trimmer, put in the oil and gas and it started on the first pull. I bought it for my son that is being overrun with lespedeza. Mature lespedeza destroys a regular string trimmer and I was nervous if I had bought the right tool. Well this Cub Cadet goes through that stuff like its not even there. Could not be more pleased!
