Price: $1199 & $1349

The Cub Cadet CC760 and CC760 ES have evolved from the very popular and well loved Troy-Bilt Wide Cut and Wide-Cut ES self propelled walk behind mower built of the late 90's and early 2000's.


CC 760 and CC760 ES Wide Area Walk Behind Lawn Mower

The Cub Cadet CC760 and CC760 ES have evolved from the very popular and well loved Troy-Bilt Wide Cut and Wide-Cut ES self propelled walk behind mower built in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. The CC760 is currently powered by a Cub Cadet Branded engine which is made outside of the USA but has proven to be very reliable so far. We’ve seen some minor repairs on this engine in the two years that MTD has used this engine on the CC760 series and have had very good success with propane fuel conversions on this engine as well. While the CC 760 is the recoil start version engine, the CC 760 ES is a electric start engine with no recoil start.

The SureSpeed rear-drive, variable speed transmission on the CC760 and CC760ES is essentially a small lawn tractor transmission, which has proven to be a more that adequate drive system for this mower with four (4) forward speeds and one (1) reverse speed. The steering of this mower is very easy due to the swivel front wheels and the smooth drive system. The front wheels are 8″ swivel casters which are grease-able while rear wheels are 16″ pneumatic turf treads.

The CC 760 wide area mower comes with a 33″ 12 gauge steel deck designed with Cub Cadets unique CycloCut cutting technology which Cub claims will provide superior mulching and side discharging than standard stamped deck designs. The CC760’s cutting height varies from 1.25″ – 3.5″ with a 8 position single lever which is very easy and no to heavy to adjust up and down.

The CC 760 is priced at $1100 while the CC760 ES is priced at $1349.00


Warranty: 3 year/120-hour limited warranty for peace of mind.

Accessories: The Bagger is optional on this model and costs $119.00 and work by hanging on a extension rod of the right side handle bar. Our tests show that the bagger works good and is easy to empty and attach to the machine.

Expert Conclusion: The CC760 and 760ES are both very good wide area walk behind mowers for lawns that are sized 1/4 to 1 acre in size and perform very good despite the swivel wheels on slopes and hills. With plenty of forward speed in 4th gear you can really cut some grass with a very high quality of  cut due to the timed deck blades overlap.
