This model is notorius for this symptom. Take it to a reputable shop.
Preferably a SERVICING INDEPENDANT DEALERSHIP as they have access to any upgrades or service bulletins for your model.
Find your nearest USA servicing dealership here.
Hope this helps!

Bolt broke off of adapter and blade. I replaced bolt and it broke again. So i replaced the bolt and adapter and now making a loud knocking sound this is on my cub cadet walk behind sc500z

Hi Diana:
I'd suggest that you pull the spark plug lead so it does not accidently start, and then try this.
Place the mower at a height where you can easily see under it. I use the tailgate of my pickup trucl.
If you put the handle inside the bed of the truck you can put a weight on the handle so the deck is tipped up. With the spark plug disconnected (or even removed) rotate the blade. Chances are that the knocking sound will be from the blade hitting the deck. It is possible that the bolts keep breaking because the blade is not seating properly.
I'm guessing that once you can see under the mower you will find the problem.

Why do I have to push so ******* the handle to make it go forward?

If this is a self powered mower, you probably need to make an adjustment. (All self-powered mowers need an occasional adjustment). Check your owners manual for the procedure on your mower, they vary by brand and model).

My RZT 50 turns blades on when levers are pulled back instead of shutting of and shuts off when in forward position ? could it be a switch is bad if yes what switch?

Sounds like someone has been working on the wiring, probably trying to bypass the reverse cut out switches . If you follow your steer control lever down under the plastic console covers there will be a switch, one on each steer lever by where it hinges. I don't think the switch is bad because it would not work at all if it was.It is like a door bell switch, when you pull back on the steer control lever it pushes it in and disconects the circuit to the PTO switch and the blades quit until you push them forwards and lets the curent through again. Also check the push pull PTO switch .Every safety switch on the tractor will meet at that switch and plug into it, . That model cub RZT50 has to have the worst switches ever made, but they are available and cheap on ebay. Plunger Switch 430362 430 362 for Cub Cadet Troy Bilt MTD 700 Series 725...

I have a2011 cub cadet zero turn mower but when I push the left side handle it doesn't barely move . Like theres hardly any power to move the left side. What is a matter with it? Is going to cost alot

May be low on hydraulic Oil.
Theres also a nut that releases the hydro pressure make sure it is not loose. Make sure there are no leaks. And make sure on the back of the mover that the hydro release is not pulled. If there are no issues then there is a issue with the hydro pump and yes the repair is costly. A replacement pump is roughly $250-300 dollars.

Cub cadet zero turn will not start. Mower cannot be pushed or pulled

There usually is a release on the rear of the machine for pushing ,mine looks like a piece of chain on the right rear. Pulls out and lets the hydraulics freewheel

Noisey Cub Cadet mower

If the noise is coming from the deck, locate the idle pulley on the deck. there should be 1 or 2 rubber "bumpers" at the opposite end of the pulley arm where it meets the "j" pin. If they are missing, it will make a loud metal to metal sound.
