We have reviewed electric lawn care and power tools here before; check out our EGO mower and EGO snow blower reviews. I personally love these battery-powered tools. Since our reviews, EGO has also come out with a riding mower, the Z6, which is pricey at US$4,999!
Cub Cadet has come out swinging with its own Zero Turn mower, the ZT1 42E, which is US$500 cheaper than the EGO. But that’s not all; the company is also offering two other models. The XT1 LT42E for US$3,999, and the CC30E is US$2,799. Both look really amazing and come in way lower than EGO.
Cub Cadet is also offering a few other electric lawn tools, here’s what you can expect in the near future:
- 60 Volt Max 21″ Signature Cut™ Push Walk-Behind Mower
- 60 Volt MAX Chainsaw
- 60 Volt MAX Hedge Trimmer
- 60 Volt MAX Leaf Blower
- 60 Volt MAX String Trimmer
Here’s what the company’s press release had to say:
Cub Cadet’s lithium-ion battery line features the same uncompromising commitment to design, comfort and performance found in all of its products. The electric lineup is proven to deliver the same results as Cub Cadet’s industry-leading gas models. From the Ultima ZT1 42E zero turn mower to the 60 Volt MAX String Trimmer, the electric line provides all the tools needed to fine-tune every part of your lawn.
“Cub Cadet is deeply committed to innovating to meet the ever-evolving needs of its customers,” said Jason Koleki, director of Product Marketing Ride-On Equipment, Cub Cadet. “The momentum behind electric-powered outdoor power equipment is undeniable, so we’re excited to expand on the legacy and reputation of our gas-powered products to deliver electric options that pack more than enough power to get the job done.”Cub Cadet
