Powered by a Cub Cadet 55 OHV electric-starting engine, the LM3 DR53es petrol rotary lawn mower is equipped with a 53cm (21") rugged steel deck and rear high wheels, recommended for lawn areas in excess of 1200 square metres in size.

The intuitive and state-of-the-art MySPEED drive system on the LM3 models engages once the handle is pushed forward. If you walk faster, the lawn mower's speed increases effortlessly to match your walking pace. Just grab the handle, start to walk and see how easy and comfortable mowing can be.

With the additional side discharge option, high rear wheels and hard top catcher with fill indicator, the Cub Cadet LM3 DR53es sets a new standard.

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

The Cub Cadet LM3 DR53es benefits from a 4-in-1 function so you can choose between cutting and collection, mulching and side or rear discharging the grass clippings. The soft fabric grass bag with hard top and full bag indicator has a large 70 litre capacity.

Manoeuvrability is aided by the rear high wheels for smooth running, even over undulating ground. The double ball bearing wheels increase the service life of the machine. 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.

Electric-Starting Cub Cadet Engine

No need to pull on a recoil cord, the Cub Cadet 55 OHV engine starts at the turn of a key.

4 in 1 System

You have the choice of four different methods. Bagging, mulching, rear discharge or side discharge. This gives you the freedom to select the ideal discharge solution for any condition.

Central Cutting Height Adjustment

One grip to adjust all four wheels simultaneously. Less effort, less time, comfort on the highest level.

Hard Top Bag with Fill Indicator

The dust proof hard top catcher with fill indicator cares for less dust during dry periods and the fill indicator flap signals when the grass catcher is full and needs to be emptied.

High Wheels

Excellent manoeuvrability is a key factor on a good lawn mower. High rear wheels let the mower drive over lush grass and uneven terrain much smoother and with less effort.

Height Adjustable Handle

The handle can be matched to your preferred height, providing a stress-free and fatigue-proof mowing in comfort.

Very pleased with the product my only concern is the small size of the petrol tank I found that I was filling up more than usual
