Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Many plusses I used my 3x on Long Island for the winter of 14-15. I was overwhelmed by the power to start with. Power steering was huge plus. Not heaving to turn by my power was a dream. Heated hand grips also helped to keep hands warm. It starts on the first pull everytime. Another plus is gas tank size. Best is the end of the driveway. We all know the plows,come thru and we end up with a lot snow build up. I was waiting for this to happen when it snowede, well, I was dumbstruck at just how well the 3x preformed. Make sure you get an extra set of shear pins. I changed the oil after the first battle and put Mobil One synthetic in place of conventional oil. I wasn't impressed with the headlight. No matter when you throw snow it's easy to see where you are going. Everything you do is on the control panel, so you don't need to stop for any reason. If I could change one thing on the unit. I would rather have a metal out take chute instead of plastic. Yes I would by it again, only wider next time. I made over 3,000 dollars last year with it so it's already paid for itself. Have fun, I do October 19, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good machine This snowblower works great in deep snow but when the snow is only about 3 inches deep it just pushes it ahead like my old 2 stage did. Very disappointed with that happening. I also bought the cab for it and if you use any gear higher than 1st the front of the machine will raise up over the snow. The machine is well made and should last a long time. March 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great performance I purchased the 3X 28" blower on Sunday 25Jan2015, 24 hours before the 2015 blizzard here in New England where I received about 24+" of snow. This blower had no trouble getting through even the nearly 30" at the end of my driveway. The difference between this and my former 13 year old 2 stage blower are tremendous. Even with the amount of snow we had, I was able to clear my driveway in about an hour less time (50% reduction). I was also surprised at the low fuel consumption, maybe 1 gallon over 3.5 driveways I cleared. Add the power steering and heated grips, and I am much less sore than I used to be. the power steering does take a little getting used to, but is well worth the time. If you're considering this as an option to buy versus another, go for it, you won't be disappointed. January 28, 2015
