  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

Totally Pleased
I rolled it out of the box, unfolded the handle, put the oil and gas in and started it on the second pull. I have already mowed about 2 acres with it and absolutely no problems. Starts on the first pull every time. And what a work saver! So much better than having 20 lbs slung over your shoulder! Highly recommended.

String Trimmers Direct... No Customer Support!
I ordered STD's Cub Cadet ST 100 (22") 159cc Walk Behind String Trimmer. I received it in a timely fashion. FedEx left it on my concrete floor, in my garage (I was not home). The bottom 1/3 of the box was covered in oil. I moved the box to another farm building and sat it down, again on the concrete, to discover it had left oil all over on my garage floor and farm building concrete floor.

Opened the box to discover the 20 oz. container of engine oil had been punctured, which had left... more

Randy,
I apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, we do not have access to the exact string that Cub Cadet includes with this trimmer. We sent you compatible string at no charge to replace the soiled string. We have also shipped the oil and manual to you to rectify the situation. You also have the option to clean the strings off, they are still able to be used.

We emailed the manuals to allow for these to be viewed prior to the printed versions we were also sending. As with the trimmer line, we do not carry the exact oil that shipped with the unit. We sent you the same oil with a different label which will not cause a variation in performance. I apologize once again if you feel we or Cub Cadet did not provide adequate assistance as we have taken all proper steps on our end to rectify the situation. I hope your future purchases prove to be more sufficient.

Excellent Piece Of Equipment!
It works as designed...almost always starts on the first pull with no fiddling with the carburetor. We have St. Augustine grass which needs to be cut at around four inches. The Cub Cadet could be adjusted to that height. I use it for trimming along beds. The lawn mower throws the mulch...the wheeled string trimmer does not.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable
Cons: Nothing bad about it to report.

A Monster Of A Machine
Great starting, first pull out of the box. Strong enough for my yard and woods. I would recommend it.

Two things, open trim at front cuts quick and hard. Practice in a safe area for a while. I would have liked for it to cut a little lower. It does have an adjustment, but higher. I wouldn't let mine go once I used it.

Awesome
I had trouble finding a truly heavy duty trimmer...but this is it. It has very sturdy parts and works easily on all terrains. We have a acre and a half plus a creek that is dry half of the time.

This trimmer is so sturdy and does great. We have a cub cadet tiller also, and it's so heavy duty also. This brand is so much better than the others.

Does What I Need It To Do, Excellent!
Ordered online and received several days early. Needed some way to weed-eat remote areas once every couple of months (old cemetery, around old cabin, rough terrain with rock). Lawn mower was not a good option and my arm/shoulder could not handle a long period with a weed-eater.

This machine is awesome for what I need. Starts quick,very maneuverable. Just completed a mowing with this machine at an old cemetery that was about 20" high of grass and briars. Finished in about an hour that... more

Works Like A Champ.
Very well designed, straight-forward piece of gear.

Things to note: before starting up, I added oil as the manual says. Since I didn't want to overfill, I added just a bit to start. I checked the dipstick and it looked like I had it topped up. I fired up the rig - started first pull! - and cleared our back yard for about 15 minutes. I rolled the rig around to the front yard to tackle it, but wanted to check the oil again. The dipstick showed nothing, so I added some, checked, kept adding,... more

This Is The Real Deal In String Trimmers!
I had a large vacant lot to clear...overgrown with weeds about 3 feet tall. This thing ate thru the mess like it was butter and I was done in three hours. Two neighbors came over to find out what it was they'd never seen one of these before!

"Assembly consisted of putting oil in the engine, gas in the tank and folding the handle into the up position. And yes, it started on the first pull!! Best of all, it's NOT MADE IN CHINA!"

Cub Cadet St-100 Starts On First Pull
I received my Cub Cadet ST-100 yesterday and got it ready to go. I was surprised that it started on the first pull and it continues to start on the first pull every time. I had a problem getting the trimmer string attached yesterday and sat down and read the manual.

It was then that I really looked at the drawing on how to attach the string trimmer line and noticed exactly where the line crossed over itself. If I would have read more and followed the directions, there would not have been a... more

Easy Peasey
I shopped among the many many walk behind trimmers available, a lot of them costing much more than this Cub Cadet.

I chose the Cadet for it's simplicity and large number of favorable reviews, but the review that made up my mind was the one where a wife wouldn't let her husband touch her Cadet after she used it for the first time.

She had me at "wouldn't let her husband use her Cadet". It started on second pull when first fired up and has been a real performer since then, and my... more

Good Trimmer
I like many, did some research on as many trimmers as possible prior to making a purchase. Fortunately, I was even able to use a competitors trimmer, as I really wanted to see if wheel size was going to be a factor. Thus far, I've put the Cub Cadet trimmer through its paces on three different occasions, each averaging about 4 hours a time and I've been pretty pleased with the performance overall.

First off, the 14" wheel size is a MAJOR factor, particularly in maneuverability over... more
