So Much Better Than My Last Snowblower!
I have an 18 car driveway which I had been clearing with a 5 HP 2 stage snow blower for the past 9 years. After it took me 3 hrs with my old machine to clear the driveway after a recent 12 inch blizzard, I decided it was time for an upgrade.

I have used my new Club Cadet snow blower with 3 storms since I received it (6 days after I ordered it, crate and machine were in perfect condition when it arrived). Wow! What a difference!. Unlike my old machine, NOTHING bogs this thing down! We just... more

Good Idea, Bad Parts
I bought due to the idea behind the 3 stage. The snow I have tried to clear has not been wet nor heavy. The cotter pin on the rear blade has broken at every use. The front cotter pin has broken twice. The rear plastic sleeve under the blade has shifted and now it cannot be replaced with out a full take apart. Today after four uses the spring for the auger engagement has broken. The chute has certain points it will stay at and the joy stick with chopper mittens on is not user friendly. The good... more

Used My Snowblowert For First Time This Season.
The 3x (28") snow blower performed well on the wet snow we had yesterday. The only issue I have is the drive wheel on the right side does not operate so the blower will pull to the right. Also the quick turn lever for the right side is not returning to the home position. I plan to contact SBD to get this corrected.

Arthur,
Arthur,

It appears the right side trigger is freezing up some how. It could just be stuck, but it could not be operating properly. Most likely the reason why the right wheel is not operating would be because somehow the trigger is locked in the wheel release setting. This may just be a matter of breaking it in a little. It is also possible there is too much slack in the cable as well. Try readjusting the cable if this is the case.

We are more than happy to help, please feel free to give us a call if you need to.

Handles The Big Ones
I bought this at the end of January hoping it would chase winter away. It didn't . We had over three feet of snow and ice. This machine ate it all up in record time. I was back in the warmth in no time as compared to my 8-1/2 Simplicity. Still use the old one to clear the backyard for my dog but this new one is the ultimate street fighter giving the plows a run for the money. I love it and would highly recommend it to everyone.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Bad Instructions

Bad Review Not Derserved
After talking to a company rep, he helped me by phone to find out that the problem with my 3X & not performing in heavy snow, was in fact a shear pin on the back blade that had broken & I never noticed it, it was only clearing/blowing part of the snow. I took out my frustrations by leaving an undeserved review on the review board, with out knowing all the facts first. I retract my first review, thanks for your understanding.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again

Snow Eater
It has snowed every week this winter, sometimes twice, and the Cub Cadet 3 stage has stood up to all of it. The engine starts easily manually, I haven't needed to use the electric start yet. The blower has a great capacity and powers through heavy, large drifts. You have to be careful of the front rotor as I have sheared 2 pins from running it into solid objects. Never have sheared any of the other pins. I like the spout control and wheel brakes which make turning easy. I would recommend... more

Great Machine!
Our 15-yr old snow blower "gave up the ship" during a 12-plus inch snowstorm a few weeks ago. We ordered the Cub Cadet 28" three-stage from Snow Blowers Direct. We were a little worried about buying it sight-unseen however all of the stores around us were out of them and my hubby had his heart set on the three-stage. The machine was delivered a few days later. The kind truck driver backed into our driveway to make it easier to unload it and he helped my husband do that. The... more

Works Fine, But Assembly Instructions Could Be Clearer
Got the chute installed, but the pictures and text weren't exactly user friendly for those that don't have magnifying glasses at hand, plus the language was just awkward if you speak English.

Turning mechanisms seem to work fine and the thing is truly a beast in terms of throwing snow.
Note that the 'electric start' isn't a battery sort of affair, you need to plug the thing to an AC outlet to use that feature versus the pull rope. Not a big deal really, but just FYI.

Great machine. I bought it 2 months ago. Certain people are not impressed with 3-stage, but I think it works like a charm up here an hour north of Montreal.
