Answer: 
I purchased the Cub Cadet 3X 26 this morning. We just had to take the snow blower out of the box to fit it in the back of my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The box was about 2 inches too tall to clear the tailgate opening. The box might have fit if turned on its side, but with the snow blower potentially being pre-filled with oil, "this end up" is a direction that I preferred to follow.

About 36" wide, 44" tall and five to six feet long. A wood pallet forms the bottom of the box (worth keeping the pallet). Better have a couple friends and a BIG SUV. This beast is heavy. You may want to have it delivered....

Answer: 
There is a "commercial" model that comes with a steel chute. I have to question if that's really all its cracked up to be, though. Yeah, a steel chute is tougher than plastic, but it also peels, rusts, and snow sticks to it in a way that doesn't happen with plastic. I'm still debating whether I will try to replace the plastic chute if mine breaks with another of the same or would try to obtain (or make) Read More

Answer: 
Yes, but, unfortunately, it's next to useless. The engine is so huge that it pretty much blocks your view of anything in front of the machine. It does little more than let you see the back of the engine and the discharge chute in the dark. You may want to wear a headlamp or rig up some additional lighting if you plan to use the machine after the sun goes down.

3X 26 in. 357cc 3-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with Power Steering and Heated Grips is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 196.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love the cub cadet 3x 26in. Super powerful and is amazing. Great shipping also!
Date published: 2016-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is a beast! Four of my neighbors and I pooled our money to purchase this snow blower. Our last one lasted 19 years and we thought that it was time to replace it. We bought it in December 2015 and it wasn't long before we had a 29" snowfall. I never bothered with the pull start initially (after stopping for gas, it started right up with the pull starter). This snow blower handled the snowfall as if it were only 6"" of snow! It's real test came after the county plowed in our driveways, but this thing didn't even flinch! I'm almost looking forward to the next snowfall! My only complaint is that the assembly instructions could have been a little clearer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a "Beast" going through the Blizzard 2016... We got dumped with over 30 inches of snow and much higher in the drifts. This blower throws the snow farther than anyother snow blower being used in my neighborhood. Even went under snow that was higher than the front chute, backup and it falls and can be blown. Used it four or five times during the storm, made a car width path down the court to the plowed secondary road. Excellent even on the snow plowed in front of my driveway by the county. So this is the first use, but I'm optimistic about continuing use as this was the worst snow we've had in many years. Haven't tested the electric start, pull starts easy enough with only a couple of pulls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! This is a great snowblower. It has all the power you need, large fuel tank (You'll need it), easy to start, and the hand warmers are a bonus. This machine easily threw heavy, wet snow over a six foot fence when I did my neighbors driveway. Many people watched in astonishment as this machine launched heavy snow across my street effortlessly. My only complaint is the machine seemed to clog in heavy slushy snow occasionally. This was the blizzard of 2016 in the Northeast so maybe I am asking for a little much, but my sons MTD didn't seem to clog as often. Overall, I love this machine but the clogging is my only complaint. Clearing the clog can be challenging as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snowblower with lots of power Bought this anticipating New England storms. Shortly after, received snow and put the machine to work. Worked like a charm and cut through the plow pile like butter. Very strong machine, well built. Can't wait for more snow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3X 26 in. 357cc 3-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with Power Steering and Heated Grips The 357cc engine produces more than double the horsepower of a 208cc, which gives this machine plenty of throwing power (especially heavy, wet snow). If that were not enough, the power (zero turn) steering is just AWESOME! After busting my back on a 208cc 2 stage for years, I very highly recommend this machine. Easy to assemble, easy to operate, and easy on the back. Highest recommendation!
Date published: 2016-02-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk!!!! Bought one last year. Was super excited about the "3" stage. That's just a gimmick, the three stage is no better than a two stage.I broke a dozen shear pins in an hour in light snow. Even more in heavy snow. Then spent hours replacing them, which isn't easy. Soooo disappointed in this machine. I sold it this spring after one season.stay away from it, however I am giving cub one more chance as I bought a two stage this week, time will tell!
Date published: 2016-09-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Extremely powerful machine. I ripped through snow 2 feet deep with ease. I was able to blow snow from one side of my road to the other shooting it up and over the road. But this thing is heavy at 260 pounds. I don't think a small person could operate this blower easily (I am 225 pounds). When I used it for about 1.5 hours I was sweating heavily, but my back was fine. I also had to turn the hand warmers off since they made me hotter. I could see the hand warmers being more useful in very cold weather.
