Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Medium size but powerful Due to our severe and seemingly never ending Winter here in Northeastern Ohio, snow blowers were hard to come by. My TroyBilt (of 14 years) finally bit the dust (snow) when the driveshaft weld cracked. Anyway a nice lady working at Home Depot (Brooklyn Ohio) suggested I check the website to see what was still available. The Cub Cadet 179cc model seemed okay for the price. I'm happy I made this purchase. What a 'kick butt' machine. Easy to start, and the auger really grips the concrete surface. I'd highly recommend this model for someone looking for a dynamite 1 stage blower. March 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor engineering because it throws snow backwards from underneath leaving a slopy mess behind. Very hard starting unless using the electric start. Rattles like an old model T. Worst part is that it throws snow backwards from underneath leaving a snowy trail behind. Not a good design. February 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great machine Assembles easily. First start quick and blows snow perfectly. Had to clear a path for oil delivery ran across my yard effortlessly. Love it. A new add to my Cub Cadet family. February 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong snow blower with solid platform.. My snow blower was delivered in perfect condition and was easy to set up and use. Started quickly and took care of a recent snow fall of about 4 inches with ease. Sturdy snow blower with plenty of power. I am very happy with my purchase and no longer fear the snow..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good for thick slushy snow I have been able to use this machine now 5 times this winter. The first time I got to use it it was throwing 1.5" of very heavy slush without clogging. Awesome. It starts quick and easy. The more I have used it on regular snow however, I have been somewhat disappointed. It is the loudest machine I have owned and feels like it is going to fall apart as soon as I engage the auger. It seems to throw as much snow under the auger back at my feet as it does out the chute. The skinny short and curved handles hurt my hands after 5 mins of using. They would be well served to put an inch of foam all around the handles. The odd shape only gives you a small area for your hands and you feel like you are pushing your daughters toy baby carriage. It has been two hours and my hands still hurt. I do like the chute controls and the headlight has helped with night work. I am up in the air about recommending this, but since I have to choose, I will say yes, I recommend it, but barely. In the review section, I don't understand what "smart attitude" means.
