Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best out there This is a great snow blower. Added oil and filled the gas tank. Third pull and it started right up. Have used for 3 storms and have never had a problem. The heated hand grips work great and the LED lights work great for night time. Iv been able to go through 8” of snow at once and the blower never bogged down and keeper throwing a good 20-30’ away. I would highly recommend this snow blower to anyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fortune! When I was in the store to buy supplies, I saw this Cub Cadet snow blower that I was really impressed with. I went ome and did my research, finding that it was top quality. It was great to buy it locally. The service was expert, made me feel appreciated, and the price was excellent- three good things in a short period of time. My only regret is that I didn't buy a lottery ticket that day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Snow thrower is A Beast! Awesome power. We bought the Cub Cadet in this last Blizzard and at first unsure it was powerful enough as we live in the country and had drifts that were 4 to 5 feet tall. I was amazed as the blower took it head on and cleared our driveway quite quickly. We can park three cars across the driveway and is about 35 yards long. I did have to use a shovel to knock down the high snow and go back over the dropped snow but without this unit I would still be locked in. I would Highly recommend the Cub Cadet thrower to anyone. We are discussing the possibility of buying a Cub Cadet zero turn lawn mower this summer be a use of how well this snowthrower worked. I mow approx: 6 acres of land and feel that the Cub Cadet will hold up to wear and tear of the unit. I also assisted my father in law with his 6ft snowdrifts as well. He stated he was going g to purchase the same snow thrower we had purchased, I told him not to as I would use mine and blow his snow after I blew my own out. I guess you can say I am a very Satified Cub Cadet Owner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love snow have been pondering over this snow blower for awhile. Best decision that was made. handles well at 7 inches of snow, Hand warmers are great.
Date published: 2019-03-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features! First off the price was reasonable for a snow blower with all these options. Hand warmers work awesome! The negative I have about the product which I believe could be easily remedied. When they sell a blower they should start and test the snowblower to make sure everything is adjusted properly. For example my gear cable wasn’t in the right slot which I was able to adjust myself and now the lever that engages the auger doesn’t always turn the auger on which I hope is just another minor adjustment. If it isn’t I will have to bring it in to a dealer to have it looked at which I may do anyway to make sure things are good through out as to not have early failures and costly repairs when no longer on warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good features I bought this about 3 weeks ago. and it has broken two sheer pins on the front auger already, and the wheel locks for both wheels do not work half the time. I bought this for these features, but look like there are going to be issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy start, strong performance, but... I bought this about a month ago, and have only been able to use it once, as I had an issue with it from day one. I got it home and found out that the drive cable was broken, and couldn't use it until that was fixed. I contacted customer service at TSC, and they said I could return the product, but they had no more in stock at my local store, and couldn't tell me when they could get a replacement. Option 2 was to contact Cub Cadet, which I did, and they provided me with a replacement part, but had to charge me $x.xx shipping. To TSC credit, they did give me back the $x.xx shipping charge, but I had to go back to the store to get it (which I did do). Next, after receiving the cable and installing, I was ready to go, so I thought. I was able to use the blower after the next storm, but noticed, it was real slow in reverse 2, and reverse 1, still went forward. Simple fix? yes, but... I was able to quickly adjust the cable for the drive shifter so I could finish the driveway during that storm, and when I finished, took a closer look. The 'Z' bracket that attaches to the cable for the shifter was slightly bent causing the poor drive performance. Well, I disassembled the bracket, bent it back straight and then re-assembled the whole thing, and now I have a snow blower that seems to be working normally. So, how does it work? The blower is great, throws even heavy wet snow further than my neighbors, um, 'green and yellow branded' popular snow thrower. The engine is fairly quiet for its power class and the three stage powered through the plow packed end of the driveway. It take a little getting used to the turn control, and for me the chute control is opposite from my last blower, but that will get easier in time. How could they have gotten 5-stars? Well, if TSC had offered a little extra or given back a small discount considering my problems and inconvenience, and finding a bent bracket means either the blower was damaged when getting shipped to the store, or by poor handling at the store. Seems TSC could have done more, also perhaps Cub Cadet should have shipped without a shipping charge on a brand new blower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A real beast Upgrade from a SWE524, moved from a 800 ft. driveway to a 1/4 mi. driveway and the 524 was only good up to 3-4 inch depth. The 3X has more power for crust and slush plus it's heavy enough to not get pushed up off the blacktop. The 524 was great in S.E. Indiana but the the 3X 28 is the way to go here in N.E. Pennsylvania.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing snow blower I bought this snow blower at an amazing price at our local Tractor Supply and it is a work horse. It has powers thru several inches of sleet crusted snow with ease. I have sung it’s praises to my friends and colleagues to the point that they ask if I work for Cub Cadet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beastly This thing has chopped through 2 foot of hard icy packed snow right after I got it home trying to move back my snow Banks left from my ATV plow. Last night Winter storm Mara dumped 17" of snow and mixed sleet. This beast chewed through it like nothing. The governor on the carb opened up and i walked through 300 for of driveway and snow plow sludge like nothing. Performed flawlessly. There is a slight scraping noise when the auger is released and it slows down, I'll investigate that. I made trails to my barn and hen house and doggy trails around the house too. I bought two packs of shear pins after reading other reviews but doubt I'll use them after what I just witnessed. The engine starts in two pulls and hand warmers work nicely. I did treat the cute and augers with silicone spray and it seems to help. If you are reluctant to buy a Cub cadet snowblower i can attest the 3x 28" is well worth it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome snowblower I bought this to replace my old wore out blower. I am impressed how easy it is to start and also with the power it has blowing snow. It works well in all snow conditions.
Date published: 2019-02-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power with the 357cc engine The machine performed very well once I got it started. The directions on starting the engine did not match up with the machine. Turning the chute is a lot easier due to the handle lever as opposed to a crank. Its very simple to quickly adjust where you want to throw the snow. Great LED lighting. Turns easily with the small levers below each handle. You do not have to try to lug this machine to turn it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine. I bought this product about a month or so ago. It's a great product. I have a 200 foot driveway. It was a breeze. The handles that heat is a plus. Would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new best friend! I had to convince my husband to make this purchase, touting the time and aggravation saved from trying to keep an older snow blower in working condition fr the remainder of the snow season. I knew I made the right choice in convincing him when I saw the smile on his face the first time using the Cub Cadet snowblower. He was so happy! This purchase resulted in less time clearing the driveway, less effort to get the job done. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a beast! Ok so i bought this to get at the areas of my property that the plow cannot get to! Being that it is Mid Feb almost this area hasnt been touched by a shovel all winter and it was a lot of hardpacked icey snow anywhere from 2-3ft deep that i needed to get rid of. It took some effort without drift cutters but this thing powered through it and did exactly what needed to be done! Only issue i ran into was the pin that connects the chute rotatory handle to that flex cable broke pretty quickly but ordered some hardened steel replacements for like five bucks so no biggie!

How much horsepower?

Asked by: mariah
Hello Mariah. We specify engine size and capacity using engine displacement, because it is a highly reliable and consistent way to describe an engine’s capacity. We do not provide horsepower ratings in connection with the engines we utilize. NOTE: There is no direct mathematical conversion to calculate engine horsepower from engine displacement.
