The electric-starting Cub Cadet Force Series LM2 DR46es petrol lawn mower is equipped with a 46cm (18") rugged steel deck powered by a 159cc Cub Cadet 55 OHV engine, ideal for lawn areas in excess of 1000 square metres in size. Pushing the boundaries of what walk-behind mowers can do, the Classic 'MySPEED' Series delivers flawless performance through expert German engineering so you will experience smoother engagement, superior speed variability and enhanced traction.

The all new, intuitive and state-of-the-art handle system automatically adjusts the speed of the mower to the operator's walking pace. This variable speed lawn mower features Cub Cadet's 'MySPEED' drive system which engages once the handle is pushed forward; if the operator walks faster, the handle is automatically pushed further forward and thus the speed of the mower increases; if the operator walks more slowly, the handle is pivoting back and the unit slows down; if the operator stops walking, the lever automatically moves to neutral and the unit stands still. The 'MySpeed' premium rear wheel drive control system delivers high performance and industry-leading control so you can cut around curved landscaping and hard-to-reach areas with ease.

The cutting height can be adjusted centrally through six positions between 28mm and 92mm.

With the Cub Cadet LM2 DR46es rotary lawn mower you can either collect the grass clippings into a large 60 litre fabric grass bag or, by removing the collector, rear discharge them neatly. It also offers a 3-in-1 option so you can also mulch with an optional mulch plug accessory.

The double ball bearing wheels increase the service life of the machine, whilst the ergonomic, soft grip 'MySPEED' handlebar is height adjustable and fully foldable for more compact storage. 

Slow in narrow corners, fast on wide areas - you set the pace with a 'MySpeed' drive system from Cub Cadet!

MySPEED Drive System


The drive system engages once the handle is pushed forward. If the operator walks faster, the handle is automatically pushed further forward and thus the speed of the mower increases. If the operator walks slower, the handle is pivoting back and the unit slows down. If the operator stops walking, the lever automatically moves to neutral and the unit stands still.

The mower speed automatically adjusts to the desired walking speed of the operator.

Tip: Do not pivot the handle forward to engage the drive system. Just grab the handle and start to walk. The handle will then automatically pivot forward and the mower starts to move forward.
