Q: Could you provide me with the over all lenght of this unit once assembled? Do you know the height of the handle?
by Mike Fieweger from Wisconsin on November 15, 2014

A: Mike - a Cub Cadet 3524SWE is 48" in length when assembled, and the hand grips are 34" above the ground
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: I'm interested in the Cub Cadet 3524SWE, but specs say "Assembly Required." Can you giv eme an idea of how much assembly is required? And can it be done by a novice, or will I need a professional's help? One last: is Lift Gate Service available in zip code 13501? Thanks for your help: anticipate ordering for the upcoming 2014-2015 season
by Anthony R. from New York on August 18, 2014

A: When it comes to all snow blowers, they are going to be in a box or crate and due to shipping, they need to be disassembled to some point. In terms of this unit and most others, the assembly is going to consist of bringing the handle bars into their upright position, attach the chute and bring the chute rod to the dash from the chute.

This is very minor assembly and a "Novice" should not have a problem when following directions.

Lift gate would be available for your zip code.

Snow Blowers Direct Recommended

Cub Cadet's 3524SWE has added an additional feature that is changing the snow clearing game. They have added a patented “3rd” stage auger to its 2-stage housing allowing this blower to handle 50% more snow than a traditional two stage snow blower making it great for most property owners alike.

Equipped with a powerful 277cc Cub Cadet OHV engine, the 3524SWE has more than enough torque to handle the heaviest of snow fall. Stocked with a standard electric start, all you do is press a button... more

So So At Best....
I recently purchased the Cub Cadet 3X, 24", 277cc model and I am not impressed. The machine barely handled 3" of wet snow. The joystick shoot controls are awkward, all plastic and not the best design. If it's light fluffy snow you might be ok with this machine, but hard to recommend.

You may want to contact Cub Cadet about this at (877) 428-2349. A lot of people we've heard from say this model works great for piles at the end of the driveway and for breaking up deep, frozen snow.

Find out from Cub Cadet if there's anything they can do while it's still warrantied.

Go Big Yellow!
This Cub Cadet snow blower is my first ever... up to this point I've used the scoop & a lot of elbow grease. Here's my feedback so far:

1) Shipping was very fast & professional (Brown Transport - Scottsbluff, Nebraska) given the wintry/snow covered roads in our part of the world. Shipping crate had a few minor dings on it, but machine was well protected on the inside with no visual signs of damage anywhere.

2) Assembly was quick & easy thanks to some well illustrated... more

So Far, So Great
I'm just a homeowner. Never had a snowblower before, just kids, who are now in college, leaving me to shovel mounds of Colorado snow.

Shelled out big bucks for this beast, but I must say it's a wonder to behold. Almost too much machine, but when it's snowing horizontally, you can't have too much, right?

Sadly, it was a little more brain damage than I bargained for to get it assembled and running. The user's manuals are cryptic and I guess I'd hoped for a little more hand-holding from Snow... more
Pros: Durable, Features, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Bad Instructions, Expensive

New Cub Cadet 24" Snow Blower
Have had no snow. It arrived and with just minor assembly and I have practiced with it. The printed instructions were not that clear, but a phone call to Cub Cadet and all is well. The snow insurance is working. I have not had to use the blower yet.
