Snow Blowers Direct- My Back Doctor!
I moved into a rancher, in 2010, and haven't had ANY snow- until 2013/14. We have it now (Bel Air, Maryland)!! My driveway is about 80' long (plus parking) and my back went out, in December, as I shoveled two 6" snowfalls... that was enough. Went to the Snow Blowers Direct website... ordered the Cub Cadet 221LHP... came two days later... my back is better!

I am SO glad I opted for the model with the 'remote' controls (on the handlebar) for the chute adjustment... if you watch my video-... more

Purchased This Unit Along With The Cub 3-stage To Replace My 20
My Troy's Tecumseh engine finally went after 20 years. The machine other than the motor are in really great shape but the replacement motor was going to be $550 if installed myself (bolt pattern was different) - it did not seem prudent.

The motor is powerful - PRO
Easy to assemble - PRO
These cable controlled chutes, in my opinion, are not as rugged as the metal chute driven by a manually operated worm gear. The up-down control to the chute is about useless when the powerful motor is... more

Cub Cadet Vs Winter Storm
Purchased the Cub Cadet snow blower because I couldn't take another winter of shoveling snow. The price through Snow Blowers Direct beat anything at the local big box stores. Delivery was excellent and the equipment arrived in good shape. There was some oil inside the box but it appears the equipment is stored this way. Was very easy to assemble.

Snow blower started on the first pull. I've been waiting to write my review until we received snow and I could put it to the test. Well we got 6... more

Don't Purchase
Bought a cub cadet Model 221 lhp January 2014. Would not buy another one. A shovel is less work than this bucket of bolts. It blows the snow very well but you have to push it and lift at the same time to even get it to help ever so slightly to pull its self along. Should have waited for the Toro's to come into stock. Biggest piece of crap on the market

Blows and Goes....Runs great. I bought the Club Cadet 221 LHP in November 2013. Never heard of Snowblowersdirect.com. Wasn't sure about them. Read some reviews that sounded good. You always get bad ones as you know you can't please everyone. I read one where the guy bitched about how hard it was to put together...Some people have trouble zipping their pants...Anyways, got it in 3 days...shipped fast. No problems. Easy to put together and started right up. Got 12"of snow right before... more

Manueverable
Directional 'joystick' for aiming snow throwing is nice feature. So far so good. Starts every time on first try. Very timely purchase with the huge snowfalls this year! Has yet to stall going through 18" drifts of snow. Happy with it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight
Cons: None

Didn't Survive One Season
Received in box and left in garage for 2-3 weeks, upon unboxing there were several cracks in back cover and small cracks on shroud, appeared cosmetic so I was not too worried. After 4 uses, chute control no longer worked, told repair would likely not be covered as the linkage is one part you have to build out of the box (the part repaired was not part of the self assembly). Cost $55. Now fuel line is leaking. Lost a half tank of gas that leaked out in my storage garage. Lucky I didn't have... more

Real World Tests
Great snow blower. Ordered online and shipped very quickly, just in time for our NE snow storms back to back. Added oil (included in box) and put gas and started on 2nd pull. Used electric start and is even easier to get going. The blower cuts through snow with ease. Even the piles made by the snow plow at the end of the driveway can be cleared with this machine. Best thing is no bending down to adjust the chute rotation and throw angle, all accessible through the levers on the handle... more

Mtd Quality
Chute control broke on second use. Loud muffler, choke control is in a very difficult place to reach. Has a lot of power and starts easy. I should have read other reviews comparing this to MTD. I now realize that it is an MTD. Had I known that originally I would have bought the Toro. This is Walmart/MTD quality.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

So Far So Good
After the 8th snowfall in CT my Snapper's auger broke for the 2nd and final time. I replaced with the Cub Cadet 221 LHP. Love the fact that is has a headlight, a feature usually reserved for more expensive 2 stage machines. 4 cycle engine is quieter and cleaner than old 2 cycle it replaced. So far it handled 4 new snowfalls of 1", 3", 8" & 10" with no issue. These were cold snows so don't know about the heavy wet snows of March yet. it threw the snow twice as far... more

Satisfied Customer
Very satisfied with Power Equipment Direct. Prompt delivery and useful info.

Our first snow blower in NE weather worked out to be a great investment when we discontinued our plowing service. Cleaned up 100ft+ driveway without issues.

The only recco I would have is for larger diameter wheels which may make it easier to push up the slope when required. Highly recommended product and online retailer. Just placing another order with them for other power equipment.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Not Easy To Push Up Slope During Heavy Snow - Larger Wheels Pls
