The Cub Cadet single-stage 21 in. gas snow thrower has a powerful 208 cc 4-cycle Cub Cadet OHV engine that delivers much more power than you might expect from a single-stage snow blower and it all begins with a simple push of a button. Just plug into a standard 110-Volt wall outlet, press the starter button and you’re ready to go. You can change the direction of where you throw snow right from the operator’s station. A convenient dual 2-way remote chute and pitch control joystick gives you immediate access and 1-hand control without bending. A in-dash LED headlight clears your view so you can clear a nice, clean driveway at any time of day.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great blower I bought 221 LHP in August of 2013, and it has been very reliable. It's handled everything from 3 - 24+ inches, slush to powder. This has been one of the snowiest winters in Mass, and my 221 LHP has cut threw everything thrown at it. My neighbor even stopped by and commented on what a work horse it is. He has a old 2 stage thrower that just doesn't throw snow all that well. The one issue I have is with the shoot controls, the shoot direction control freezes up, but it is down on the shoot swivel. I need to get a can of silicon to spray on it. The height control freezes as well, but I never really need to change that from the highest setting. Other then that, it starts easy both manually and with the electric start. And it throws the snow a good distance. March 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just adding information to my last review My last review talked about the control cables to the chute. Cub Cadet service replaced the ones on my snow blower. They put a lot of lithium grease on the cables. Well it's the 3rd time I've used it and the cables were froze tight. Less then a month since they were replaced. I had to take them off to use the snow blower. The main chute control was froze also. I did manage to get that to work, but, it is loose and I think it is about to break the gears. I am frustrated with the remote cables and remote chute control. It looks like I'll have to replace the remote chute to the manual one. I'll be going back to the service center tomorrow. They told me to take off the cables if it happened again. I am not sure if the cables are froze because it is cold here or because they are rusted. Either way, it is cold in winter and having this problem is getting me unhappy. February 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I have had this thrower for 2 seasons. It is better than I ever expected. I have had experience with other "larger" and smaller throwers. This is just right. I have a large area to plow and also the entire street. It handles 6 inches of powdery snow without issue."Wet" snow is handled well too, you just have to push the thrower slower. I like that the size is comparable to a lawnmower ,therefore, it's easy to move about in tight spaces. The only maintenance has been oil changes. This season the cable which tilts the auger had to be replaced. It was not difficult. I got the part from this site,and it was delivered quickly. I love that this thrower has an excellent electric starter. I am a senior female....which some folks like to know when they read reviews. Great product. it's DEFINITELY worth the extra $100,00 to buy the one with the auger control one near the handlebar. This makes it SO EASY to make adjustments. In the pass my throwers were all crank auger and that's a real pain to do especially with the wind blowing snow in your face. The light is also quite bright,easy to reach. February 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointed Truly disappointed in this product. I have had nothing but trouble with it since I brought it home. It runs poorly, it does not throw snow well. If the snow is the least bit heavy, the machine clogs up. You have to baby the thing to get anything done. Also, the controller for the shoot only worked for a short time and eventually quit working altogether. I have had to remove it, so that I can manually change the trajectory. i regret having purchased this product. January 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very nice snow blower. I was impressed with this the first time I used it. I ended up selling my 2 stage snow blower. This blows snow!!! The only problem I have had with it is, the chute control cable rusted shut. The fourth time I used it the chute cable would not move. I ended up taking off the cables and moving the chute myself. Cub Cadet told me no one else has this problem. I noted on this site a different person with the same problem. I have had this since 12-2014. When I got this out of storage for this winter, the cable was froze shut. After talking to Cub Cadet company I took it to a local Cub Cadet repair place and the cables were replaced under warranty. When we first took it in I was told no one else had this problem. I know my brother has the same problem. Anyways, when we picked it up the service man said the fixed one of these last year. So, I have no idea why some of them have cable problems. When I got it back from repair I noticed a lot of lithium grease on the cable ends. This winter after I am doing blowing snow I spray the lithium grease on the cable ends. Hope it solves my problems. I like this snow blower, the problem I have with it is the cables. I would tell others it's a great product but lube the cable ends after use. February 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product and nice features I've used this machine a couple times and once in about 4 inches of snow. It propels itself well and seems to move the snow a good distance. I am glad I chose the handle bar chute controls. It made re-positioning the chute on the fly easy and I needed to make those adjustments more than I thought I would. Starts well manually has ample power. My only complaint is that the scraper interferes with the paddle. It can't be adjusted any more and will either have to be trimmed or worn in. This contact causes a vibration. I am happy so far with this purchase. December 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great piece of gear I picked up this snow thrower in the winter of 2011-2012. 3 years later, it's still kicking butt. It fires up every time, warms up in about 5 minutes and then keeps going no matter what. This snow thrower is a beast, it's taken on stuff that a single stage shouldn't be able to, from powder to slush, even with chunks of ice in it. Anything that's not frozen solid, this machine chops right through. I've read some reviews about the chute control cables rusting, but I haven't had that problem. Just to be safe, the chute turret gets a quick hit of WD40 after each use; again, though, everything still works like brand new. Highly recommended. February 21, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cub Cadet 1x 221lhp It is bulky, the wheels are too small for the size of the machine;so it is hard to maneuver in deeper snow and confined areas. The shoot directing lever can freeze up if it gets wet, but is fairly easy to free up. The control lever to direct the upper shoot to throw the snow higher or lower is connected to a lever controlled by cables. The cables are not shielded properly so moisture can get in and freeze making the upper shoot impossible to use. Trapped moisture will eventually rust the cables and they will become useless. This machine is OK if you can keep it in a dry, heated storage space. If not,forget it. I have had mine for three years and have had to modify it to keep it working as I store it in a dry but unheated shed. February 8, 2015
