Customer Questions & Answers

Clean surface with one pass?

We have a working snow blower, but it does not get down to the concrete and leaves a coating of snow that then freezes and causes a problem getting up the driveway if we don't hand shovel or de-ice. I see our neighbors getting down to the concrete with smaller units than ours (Honda is one brand). We are doing a 3 car garage 20 yard long driveway on an incline (maybe 10-15% grade). We get a few heavy snows a year (>5" and < 9"). Many times we have 3-4". This seems like too much machine for our use in Nebraska, but it has the best rating for surface cleaning. Any other options? What do you recommend? Thanks.

Addendum to Franks review. I use a low fwd speed but the highest engine RPMs. Does not clear or throw snow as you would expect from a 10 HP machine.

Is this a snow pusher ?

One of the reviewers stated this machine does not blow snow that is 3 inches deep. They also stated their 2 stage did the same thing. my existing 2 stage 8 HP handles these types of snows just fine as well as the deep snow at the end of the drive at the street. We get a lot of wet snows 3 to 6 inches deep. Has anyone else had experience with light snows and this machine ?

Horse Power Rating

I know that most manufacturers now rate their engines by displacement. It is my understanding that two engines with the same displacement can produce different amounts of power. Does Cub Cadet have a Horse Power rating for 357cc engine?

3X 28 in. 357cc 3-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with Power Steering and Heated Grips is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife and I sold our house recently with all furnishings. When it came time to set up the new ... My wife and I sold our house recently with all furnishings. When it came time to set up the new homestead there was never a thought about anything but a Cub Cadet 3 Stage Snow Blower based on the amazing ownership experience of our first one. As residents of interior Southwestern Maine, the machine was put to the test many times. We had two winters with snowfall so deep that plows start running out of room to put snow and the lanes keep getting narrower due to the snow banks getting larger. Because the 3 Stage can throw it a mile - we were always able to cut back snow banks and keep wide open lanes. Our new machine is even better. The designers have made the controls even easier to use than before. We are now living in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, an area that experiences even more snowfall. This new 3 Stage Cub Cadet has made short work of every challenge nature has provided. Cub Cadet earned our loyalty and Home Depot delivered it at a competitive price.

I used it the first time in the last snow storm in Connecticut on Jan 8, 2017. It was a 6 to 8 inch snow fall and I only use low speed. These are the problems that I encountered. The augers did not pick up the snow very well and keep plowing the snow in front of the auger housing. What snow it did pick up only shot out of the chute about 10 to 12 feet extremely disappointing performance. As for clearing the snow at the end of the driveway that the snow plow leaves it only climbs the piles, it does not remove the piles of snow as advertised . (Note none of the shear pins on the auger are broken). The gear box also made a grinding sound each time the forward motion or the auger was engaged. The home office of Cub Cadet was notified and they recommended that I contact the selling Cub Cadet dealer (which I did) and the dealer is coming to my home to pick up the snow thrower investigate and hopefully correct the problems. UPDATE TO BE FORTH COMING.

The Good: does its job there is the power to even remove the wet heavy snow we got this December 2016, works even better on normal snow great on the drifts. Power steering work great,. get your running shoes on when your in 5+ gear I really mean it you'll be running removing the snow; The Bad: the controls are hard to get at when you have gloves on, the electric starter is on one side the chock and accelerator on the other and behind the handle. It's great that the handle can fold down easy for summer storage but it need a better stable fit when in use, (zip-strip to stabilize the handle) on the lower section of it. The Ugly: the learning curve to use the snow blower with the power steering and speed to use for the different snow. Over all very happy with it:

The first was ~4 inches of light snow, the second was on ~6 inches of slushy stuff. The blower performed well in all aspects except for the chute control. The pin provided to hold the chute control rod spit out of the rod about 5 minutes into the first job. Took 20 minutes to find and it popped off again after being put on. I got a piece of wire and ran it through the hole and tied it off on itself. It is holding just fine but all in all I think the chute control of this unit is completely out of whack when compared to the rest of the controls. Everything else feels like high quality components- powerful, rugged, heavy. The chute control by contrast feels like it belongs on a much cheaper unit - very disappointed here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Club Cadet legend I havnt had an opportunity to use my new Club Cadet Snow blower yet, but I grew up with Club Cadet tractors. My father would only buy those tractors as they held b up and ran well for years and years. My construction manager reviewed all your tractors and snow blowers. He's dealt with CC products for many years, and this one was his top recommendation. Can't go wrong wen you listen to guys with years of experience in tractors and snow blowers. He said my new one made him sad that he didn't have it. But his of 10 years plus just doesn't give him an excuse to replace it.

Engine is too small for unit, Okay if you are moving half inch of dry fluffy snow but clogs even on 1st speed with any more.. Plus the pin holding the joystick broke after only one season so no control of chute and can not take it in for repairs anywhere and have it tied up for a week or more in the winter. Plus chute blocks the light so that is useless. Miss my sears 2 stage that puts this to shame!

There are two negatives first I have a gravel driveway and it as a hard time on uneven surfaces keeps catching, after running a snapper for 20 years I like its light weight but the snapper did have a cleaner path at the end of each pass
