Price & Delivery

The price was not listed on the website and there was no option to purchase the Cub Cadet 999ES online. Consumers interested in this product look up an authorized dealer that is located near them.

Safety & Operation

Read the manual thoroughly before operating the Cub Cadet 999ES for the first time. Become familiar with the operation of the Cub Cadet 999ES, the drive system, and the speed in the various forward gears. Check that there is sufficient fuel in the fuel tank and oil in the engine prior to starting for the first time and every subsequent time you use the Cub Cadet 999ES. This is a good practice to get into in order to avoid damaging the engine due to low oil levels.

While operating a lawn mower there are precautions that everyone should take while operating a lawn mower. For example, when using the side discharge never stand in front of the discharge and never allow anyone else to stand there. At times, sharp objects can be picked up by the lawn mower and expelled at a high rate of speed. You do not want to be hit by one of these.

In addition, never operate this machine with the side discharge pointing towards buildings or cars for the same reasons. You do not want stone chip marks on the side of your car!

This is a powered lawn mower with 6 forward speeds. The operation of the mower should be at a comfortable speed for the person walking behind and at a speed that allows the lawn mower to cut the grass cleanly. Moving too fast may be uncomfortable for the operator and your lawn may not have that finished look after cutting is completed.

Always turn the Cub Cadet 999ES off before doing any kind of maintenance on the lawn mower. This includes removing the rear bag full of grass clippings. The few seconds you save is just not worth the risk of some kind of accident.

Cub Cadet 999ES – Maintenance

Maintenance is much like all lawn mowers. When you are fished cutting the lawn, always empty the rear bag and clean off the lawn mower of all debris. Cut grass left in the bag will begin to rot and will cause the bag to deteriorate. Cleaning off the deck also eliminates corrosion over the life of the lawn mower.

Follow the instructions in the manual regarding oil changes for the lawn mower. If there is heavy use of the lawn mower you may want to change the oil several times during the season. Otherwise, change the oil at least on an annual basis to avoid damage to the engine.

From time to time, you will need to have the lawn mower blade sharpened. Consumers can do this easily, however, there are some precautions you should take. First, disconnect the battery leads and disconnect the spark plug wire. This will avoid any chance of the engine starting while you are working on it. Follow the instructions in the manual to remove the blade and sharpen it.

If you are uncomfortable with doing this type of maintenance yourself, take your lawn mower to a small engine mechanic for maintenance.
