Questions & Answers

How big is the box this comes in? I want to pick it up with my SUV.

Asked by: jab
No, unfortunately, the shipping box (with an inner wooden frame) is too large for even a Ford Explorer. You'll need a pickup truck and some kind of a lift to raise it high enough to load in the truck. Shipping is free and that's the way I had mine delivered to me.

ac or dc electric start

the ads keep saying push start button and go, but do i have to plug the starter into house current or is it battery start
Asked by: chuck
You connect an AC extension cord to the receptacle of the Cub Cadet, insert the key, engage the choke, adjust the throttle to max, prime the engine a few times and press the 'ignition' button. It starts EVERY time, takes less than two seconds of cranking! However, once started, if I shut the engine down, I have a terrible time of restarting it by pulling the starter cord! I'm 5' 6", weight 155 pounds, not entirely a weakling, I can't restart the engine! I had to run back to the garage and get a 75-foot extension cord to restart the engine. Lesson LEARNED, don't ever stop the engine farther that your longest extension cord will reach! My 5hp Craftsman, when warm, restarts with just one pull of the starter cord. The Cub Cadet even when totally warmed up is impossible to restart by pulling the starter cord!

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 207.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Monster snow thrower for the heavy stuff I bought this 3 stage, 26" snow thrower to replace my aging 2 stage 24" one built by another manufacturer. I have to confess I was worried I was paying to much to just move snow around the driveway. But, you own a snow thrower for the big storms, 8" and up right? My first time out, we had a light snow around 4" that was heavy and wet. I thought this big daddy would handle it well. It did, to a point any way. In the deeper drifts, it cut through like a hot knife through butter. In the patch areas with little snow, to my disbelief, it kept clogging up. My only thought was, "man this thing needs a lot of throughput to run smoothly." Thinking it through a bit, I decided that maybe the problem wasn't the thrower at all. It was the snow not moving through with enough volume to shake loose the buildup in the chute. The upper auger had more than enough speed to toss an anvil out of the chute. So, to solve the buildup problem, I bought some "snow thrower lube". A day before the next storm, I applied the lube liberally through the entire auger bay and the chute. This allows the snow slide right over the surface. Well, problem solved. The snow thrower performed as it should, throwing snow over 40 feet without any clogging at all. Long story short: Even though it is a VERY powerful machine with a HUGE motor, you may still need snow thrower lube to keep it from clogging when dealing with low volumes of wet, heavy snow.

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.

I got this product for my daughter, had home depot assemble it and deliver it. She got it with no oil in it. I had the gas there for her but she does not know much about oil so it still is sitting where they dropped it off weeks ago. I am in another state and can not help and feel bad about it. A home depot bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snowblower love I am a 54 year old, 5'4" female, and new to the snowblower. My husband is 74 and cannot do outdoor work, so, after researching snowblowers, bought the 26 inch three stage. Woke up to 7 inches of snow this morning. Started up with electric start and proceeded to do my drive and walkways. It was pretty straight forward and simple, considering it was a heavy wet snow. This blower moved right thru, the chute was easy to operate, and the cleaning tool came in handy a couple of times. I have a quarter mile drive and was done in about an hour...Love the tight turning feature...just need to figure out how to attach the cab...all in all a great experience for a first time user, since I was concerned if I would be able to handle it. Thanks Cub Cadet...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3X Can Take A Vermont Winter I live in the mountains in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The 3X can take the winter weather we get up here and does so with ease. I put mine to the test and it has lived up to what they claim. It went right through hard, crusty, icy snow without getting bogged down. It just chewed it up and spit it out. I haven't even used the electric start since it starts with one easy pull. I didn't care about the electric hand warmers since my old snowblower didn't have them, but it's a great feature. I love how easy it is to turn the chute and the one handed operation makes it easy to adjust the chute on the go. Please forgive me for saying this but I wish it would snow more so I can get out there and use my Cub Cadet 3X.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow? What snow? Only used this once so far, it threw 8 inches of powdery snow 30ft into the yard like nothing moving along at its top speed. Didn't use the electric start, it started on the first pull of the cord no problem in 10 degree weather. To push it harder I ran it down the edge of the street where the town plow had left a 18 or so inch pile of compacted snow and it chewed right through it again at top speed. It is bigger and costs a little more than the some other throwers but figure over the 10 years you probably have a machine like this it is well worth it. Consumer reports rated these Cadet 3 stage units the best, so I bought this one which is the smallest in the 3 stage line. It is heavy so try and have it delivered.

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.
