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

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

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

Frills Are A Negative
Bought this unit in Jan. 2014 for CT winter. It supplements a 2 stage I also own (or vice versa). Basic operation if fine. Engine starts without electric start right away and runs well. My issues are with the remote chute controls. The deflector freezes shortly after put into operation. Must be thawed to regain operation. Chute rotation was very rough last year. I took it off before this season started and lubed with white lithium grease. Works fine now, but out of the box... nope. ... more

Yes, But No.
Blower has a lot of power and does a very good job of cleaning snow and I love
the electric start. Delivery was fast, but the box had holes in it and I was missing a piece.
Also the assembly apparatus is cheesy and cheap. The shoot guide "control" screws into the underside of the handles with four machine screws and when working your use will put pressure downward on this assembly and strip out the screw
slots. My assembly completely fell off the 2nd time I used the machine.

Great Product, Great Service
Bought in late December. Since then we have had a couple of snowfalls of 3" or more. The last one consisted of heavy-wet snow. This machine cleared it without a worry. The additional features that this model has that most others don't really, proved invaluable. Namely the headlight which really helps when working in the dark. The chute adjustments are unbelievable!!! You can adjust the distance and direction to throw the snow with simple adjusts at your fingertips! Used another snowblower... 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

Blizzard Of 2013... Northeast
I finally had a chance to put the Cub Cadet to use. This storm has dumped over 30" in my area.

I must admit, I removed the snow from my driveway on 2 separate occasions trying to prevent it from accumulating too much. On both attempts, the snow was higher than the top of the snow-thrower.

I cannot say enough about how this thing handled the punishment. If anyone has any doubts about the capabilities of this unit, I can tell you this ..... BUY IT, you will not be sorry!

Clearing "nemo"
I used my Cub Cadet for the first time Friday morning (2-8-2013) fighting storm Nemo, in Sterling Heights where we received only about 5 inches of snow.

The machine fired up on the second pull and ran flawlessly. I like the unit and I hope to be using it for many years to come.

Cub Cadet To The Rescue
My old MTD blower served me well these last 5 years but it was time for something easier to operate. I have to make many turns & the controls on the Cub Cadet made the job so much easier. The unit throws snow up to 30 feet depending on how heavy it is as opposed to lite fluffy snow which is easier to throw. Only problem I noticed is that the unit is very hard to pull start. Using the electric starter is a dream !!! Just don't stop the unit to talk to a neighbor for a few minutes &... more

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
