Description of the Cub Cadet 46ES Lawn Mower

Front wheel drive lawn mowers are easy to maneuver. All you need to do to change direction is lean on the handles a bit to bring the front wheels up to disengage them from the ground and turn in the direction you want to go. Once you drop the front wheels, the front wheels grab the ground and away you go.

You can also adjust the height of the cut with a single leave to one of nine positions to cut your grass to the exact height you need. This really comes in handy if your grass ends up being a little longer because your forgot to cut it, or you want the grass to grow longer during dryer seasons to protect the roots.

This Cub Cadet 46ES Lawn Mower also comes with an electric start to make it easy for just about anyone to start the engine and cut the grass. Of course there are the usual safety bars to stop the engine if you let go of the handle. Never try to adjust the lawn mower in any way without first stopping the engine to avoid any chance of injury.

Delivery: Most lawn mowers can be picked up in the store, however if you do not have the means to take it home yourself, delivery usually can be arranged for a delivery charge. You may want to consider borrowing a trailer or a van to bring home your lawn mower and avoid the delivery charge. Some vendors such as Home Depot, Lowes and others will rent a van to you by the hour to transport items purchased at their stores. The rates are quite reasonable.

Safety & Operation

All lawn mowers should be treated with respect. They are powerful machines and in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. Start by reading the manual and following all of the safety guidelines outlined in the manual. Never work on the lawn mower without first ensuring that the engine is turned off.

While cutting the lawn and using the side discharge, never allow anyone to stand beside the discharge or point the discharge at something that could be damaged by high speed flying objects  ejected from the lawn mower.

Always check the engine to make sure that there is sufficient oil in the engine before starting each day. Top up if necessary.  Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cool. A good time to do this is before you start cutting the lawn. Fuel spills can sometimes cause fires. If you do spill any fuel, wait until it evaporates prior to starting the engine to avoid any chance of fire. Always fill the fuel tank outdoors.

Shut the engine off before removing the rear bag to empty it of grass or making any other kind of adjustments to the lawn mower.


Maintenance of the lawn mower  is pretty straight forward. Read the guidelines in the manual and follow them.  Arrange to have your engine tuned up once a year and the oil changed at the same time. This applies to most consumer applications where you are cutting your lawn once a week. If you are using the lawn mower for commercial applications you may need to change the oil more often.

Keep the housing free of debris to avoid the acid from the grass causing the housing to deteriorate. Also keep grass from building up around the muffler to avoid the possibility of fire. Check the spark plug to ensure that it is not corroded and dirty. Replace if it is pitted. Always use clean fresh gasoline for your lawn mower. Following these tips and others in the manual will ensure that your lawn mower will last for many years.
