Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PI Still missing a part. Waiting for Home Depot to respond to my email.
Probably is a good machine, but I still don't have the control rod. So I can't finish the assembly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vail Very unsatisfied
For the first two snows worked great Those snows were about 10 to 12 in and light. The next snow was about 15 in and wet. Went through 6 shear pins on the impeller. . Had to use bolts in place of the shear pins to complete the task. Today the forth time being used, another heavy spring snow, the control cable on the arguer is not working. Cost me $175.00 to be plowed out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bmathews Powerful snowblower
I live in Long Island, New York and this snow blower came a few days before a big blizzard we got hit with. It had no problem getting through the big mounds left at the end of the driveway or wet snow either from another storm. I have alot of trees by my driveway also and was worried when twigs got in it but this snowblower kept going and spit the twigs out. The only thing I didn't like was the instruction manual on how to put the chute together, it could definitely be better. Other than that this is a great snowblower I have already recommended to friends.

I live in the Boston area, last year(2015 January-March) we had record snow and the snowblower I had for 2 years got stolen,because of the record snowfall I had few options of where to buy a new machine,I found a place in New Hampshire that had snowblowers in stock, the only one they had that was in my budget was the Cub Cadet 357cc 28" 3X.
I used this machine for one storm last year and it seemed to do what I needed it to, but it did not preform the way I expected.
Last week, Friday,2/5/2016, we got a relatively minor but typical snow event, 6" of heavy wet snow. Your machine that is rated at 357cc, which correct me if I'm wrong, converts to approx.9-11hp.
Aside from ripping through shear pins, which I understand and don't really have" too" much of a problem with,my biggest problem was your 3 stage auger ,it kept getting jammed up and it seemed like the machine had no capacity or ability to to transfer the power to the impeller that throws the snow out of the chute,I had to pour oil and wd-40 in to keep things moving but it still got jammed and found myself continually shutting off and sticking my hand in the ejection/impeller housing to clear the blockage, I know well enough to pull the spark plug wire before I do this, but I assume most home owners don't, which could be a liability if this is a common problem. I also noticed that there is a feeder shroud for the impeller, this seemed to be the problem where the snow got clogged. My last machine had a similar drive plate/friction wheel set-up but was able to effectively chew through and throw hardened icy snow that was plowed in front of my driveway entrance. Also I feel that at full throttle,compared to other machines and my past machines, it still sounds like its at idle, I have checked the throttle control arm and it doesn't seem like anything is out of place. Aside from selling this machine and buying a new one from a different manufacturer can you please advise me on how to correct these problems. Thank You

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Realgentleman Better than torro but not as good as Ariens
Even though it has a more powerful engine than the Ariens It did not throw the snow as far. Also when ever I went to disengage the auger it made a nasty noise. Upon in inspection the noise was caused by a piece of metal that kept the belt from falling off the auger pulley when you disengage the auger. Also the 2nd shear pin on the third stage is difficult to replace due to location and space to work in! I exchanged it for a Ariens, even though they are only 2 stage machines.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack No Doubt - Good Machine
Nearly ready out of the box. Easy to assemble using online directions from HD (those included in box were unclear). Came with oil, only needed gas. Easy to adjust guides. Total setup less than 30 mins from crate to ready.
Cuts through 3' drift with ease, excellent for clearing snow the plow leaves in your driveway. 3-stage feature appears worth the upgrade as it cleans more and throws further than other brands.
Heated handles, power steering are awesome.
