3X 34 MAX H
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received the machine 2-10-2021 Cleaned up 3 snow storms very well. Runs good, starts right up. I have NOT had any belt issues others talk about, broke an impeller shear pin and an auger shear pin when hit hard ice as they are suppose to. Read one machine was eating pins, if you hit hard debris they are suppose to shear. I like the tool less drift cutter feature, and 2-position work lights' The hydrostatic drive gives positive traction, and the metal chute was clog free. I bought extra the tire chains because I had thick ice to travel. I keep a 1/4 gap between the ground and the shave plate and was able to clear my deck with out any damage to deck, snow went into yard. Spring is here, if no more snow in two weeks will wash/wax, change the engine oil and prep for storage. This machine is garage kept when not in use.

    I used my machine at least 3 storms and cleaned out the neighbors drive way. Have had no belt issues, broke an impeller shear bolt when it hit an ice chunk [which it is suppose to do] It throws powder and crystalline snow up to 50 feet away, this chute has not clogged, waiting for a slushy snow to see how it handles that. I ordered a shear pin kit from Home Depot and it is on back order, ordered the tire chains from my preferred Cub Cadet Dealer, on back order. I had adjusted the skid shoes for a 1/4 inch clearance between the shave plate and the ground and removed the snow from my deck without damaging my deck. I like that the hydrostatic drive is just about maintenance free compared to the friction wheel drive, which could last a season or just one storm. The front LED light bar provides enough light to see at night during a snow storm. It starts right up with the electric start from cold start, the recoil starter started with one pull on a warm restart. I like the adjustable drift cutters, my old machine had fixed drift cutters, these can be used full, partial or totally retracted in seconds.

    Broken auger belt, very slow reverse
    I bought this machine last year believing that the Cub Cadet was a better quality than Ariens. Since I purchased the snow blower, I've used it about a dozen times or so with no issues. On my first pass the last time I used it, the Auger belt broke. Looking at a driveway full of snow, and rembering how much I paid for the machine, needless to say I was not happy. Off to the nearest Cub Cadet dealer I go to get a belt. No problem, or so I thought. "We have thousands of auger belts, just not yours." Awesome. Ordered it 5 days ago. Still waiting for a call. Also for a machine that size, reverse should be faster. I had my friend with his Ariens bail me out. I spent a day searching for a belt when I should have been playing in the snow with my son. I knew I should have bought an Ariens.

      Clears most types of snow very quickly, has issues with dense wet snow that will compress around the auger. Do NOT use the pull handle to start, the cord catches easily and the handle is not durable at all, it snapped during the first day of use. Assembling was a breeze and it handles well.

      Little to early to rate the performance. But so far very well built easy to get in operation. Haven’t had a lot of snow yet but it really likes deep snow from what I’ve had the opportunity to snow blow. It is a handful. I need to learn to let it do the work since it is heavy.

      Poor Quality belts
      Right out of the box the auger belt broke. Took two weeks to get a belt from the dealer being the odd ball size of the belt. The snow storm 12/16/20 into 12/17/20 in the North East . I had two auger belts break. Seen many complaints about this belt and Cub Cadet still hasn't upgraded the 954-05144 belt . Cub Cadet knowing there's a problem and ignores the problem means they lost any future sales from me. It's ironic while I was out clearing my sidewalk ,my neighbor ran over and told me he seen mine and was interested in getting one . Both of us having large property. Needless to say after breaking two belts I gave him my true thoughts. Sorry Cub Cadet ,Your letting your customers down.

        Frustrated with my 3 stage Pro blower
        I have multiple issues with the blower. I’ve used less than 1 hour and have 3 broken shear pins and a broken auger belt. My drive is paved, so pretty bummed I had to spend an additional $150 for parts. I will chalk this up to beginner user error but that brings me to my second issue. The manual for this blower is poorly written and better guidance should be provided. The manual includes instructions for 5 or six blower models and it is cumbersome at best to navigate through the installation steps. If a multiple blower manual is a necessity it should be organized by model and not have each installation step interspersed within each step. My final point is related to the first two issues. If I had better understood the frequency of shear pin breakage on a 3 stage Pro blower I may have not purchased the blower or I may have been more aware that wet snow can be difficult for a 3 stage Pro blower. I was led to believe otherwise. There is nothing professional about this blower.

        So far, so good...
        My old Cub Cadet snow blower (Model 1028) is 20 years old and starting to rust due to road salt...engine starts right up and runs fine, but I'm doing the snow blowing for four homes of elderly neighbors so I thought I needed a back up with so many people depending on me. Since I bought this new Cub Cadet (3 34 Pro H) it has only snowed twice, and that was more sleet than snow; however the new snowblower fired right up and did a good job with no problems. I didn't have the problems others have reported with slushy snow and broken shear pins. Everything has worked fine so far. Engine fired up on 1st pull and hydrostatic transmission is a dream, but speeds seem a little slow. Ask me again after 4 or 5 big snow storms. My only complaint is "What is up with no grease zerks fittings"? You have to take the wheels off the blower ever year to grease the axles instead of just using a grease gun on a grease fitting. Why? I can see on a cheaper model, but this is your top of the line. My old Cub Cadet has eight or ten grease fittings, and easy access to the gears, auger, chains and other parts that need maintenance. It just seems like unnecessary work for the consumer who wants to properly maintain his equipment. I'm not sure that in 20 years this snow blower will still have all it's original parts like my old Cub Cadet. Perhaps I'm overthinking this, but I would just feel better if the auger had grease fittings. But I suppose as long as they blow the snow and always start I shouldn't complain too much about unnecessarily complicated maintenance procedures.

            SUPERIOR SNOW BLOWER ***(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)****

              Industrial quality snow blower
              Recommended. This 34" snow blower replaces a much smaller 24" Toro. Everything about it feels twice as big -- horsepower, clearing ability, throwing distance, and ease of getting thru the frozen crusty bits. This is a very expensive item, and -- compared to the almost identical "normal" pro 34" unit -- what you are really paying for is the hydrostatic transmission. I have roughly 2,500 sq ft of pavement to clear. The first test was about 8" of accumulation, and it cleared that amount with almost zero effort. The transmission is perfectly smooth, no lurching at all. There are two little levers at the bottom of the handles that disengages the drive from that wheel making powered turns really easy. Only nit pick is the headlight seems a bit too low and the controls obscure the beam a little.

                Very Pleased
                I've only had the opportunity to use this beast a few times but not for any major storms yet. I use if for a small (approx. 25'x30'), residential driveway in the city. It has met my expectations so far, that's why I rated it as 'Good' and if I had more experience with it, I may have been able to rate it higher. I upgraded from a 10-12 year old Troy-Bilt, 24", 2-stage that I acquired when I purchased my home; it worked but was getting tired. So the new 3X 34" PRO H is a definite upgrade for me. The biggest challenge for me so far has been getting used to the controls. The new machine is definitely quieter that my old machine, which is a big plus. After using the new machine, I also don't smell like burnt oil and exhaust like I did with the old machine, which is another big plus. Though, I'm sure with any new machine it would have been quieter or smelled less. The Hydrostatic Transmission is much better than the old method of selecting a speed and I would never want to regress to the old method. The steering as also a great feature. The fastest forward speed is acceptable but in reverse, I can still pull it back faster that its top speed, which is annoying (my old machine was the same and I'm sure it's for safety reasons). I do miss the Snow Thrower Cab on my old machine though and you definitely notice the difference when that wind blown snow hits you in the face. Living in the city and with a wide driveway, I get plenty of plow deposits at the end of the driveway, which is where I can really test this machine. So far I almost clogged it once but that was moving at top speed with a large pile of plow-deposited snow. Slowing down and hitting the pile at less than full width of the machine helped keeping the machine unclogged. A warning; the center auger, Cub Cadet calls it an accelerator I think, made short work of my fiberglass driveway marker. Overall, I would definitely recommend this machine and with more experience, I would likely rate it higher that "Good". I would recommend that Cud Cadet offer better options for a Snow Thrower Cab, as the one they do offer has not had great reviews.
