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

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

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

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

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

Gets The Job Done
I've used it 3 times so far this month and it has done well. Today we had 5 inches of wet snow and it went through it relatively easily. That said, here are my notes:

Doesn't throw snow as far as I was lead to believe, but it is good enough for me. Maybe 15-20ft at best.

The chute control panel is held onto the underside of the handles with machine screws that fell out today(3rd use).

Super easy to start. I've never even tried the electric start.

Engine is OK. A bit louder than... 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

Purchase And Usage
The sales experience went well. The product's description on the website was accurate. The snow blower has performed well during three snowstorms here in New York in January. The Cub Cadet is a quality product to this point.

Cub Cadet Arrived With Broken Parts And Engine Runs Poorly
The box was in good condition but the clutch bar had fallen off the handle bars and badly scuffed up the plastic housing. The plastic key, a bad idea in the first place, was broken off. Fortunately a spare was in the parts bag. Why doesn't Cub Cadet spend three more cents and use a metal key? The engine started easily but will not run smoothly at any choke setting, particularly in the run position. I have restarted several times and given it plenty of time to warm up but it surges... more

Snow Blower
Our snow blower broke in the middle of the bad weather, it was over 30 years old and we didn't feel it would be good to put money into it, we were lucky to be able to order a new snow blower from Snow Blowers Direct, even though we went on back order we still received the new snow blower in about 3 weeks. We are now looking to purchase another one for our daughter.
