Looks Good
I bought the 3 stage snow thrower a week ago and have been running it every day with gradual increases in power so as to work in the valves etc. I like the way it handles and the engine seems to be of high quality. I have two recommendations: 1- use the electric versus the pull start due to a wiring harness on the right side of the machine that could be dislodged when manually trying to start the machine. 2- if you have never run a machine like this one, practice before the first snow fall and... more

Cubcadet 3x Snow Thrower
I bought one of these 3x snow throwers new. Had it two weeks, it failed to work as said. Many flaws, chute control froze up, wouldn't move and housing bent. Left snow on ground behind machine and headlight is worthless. Returned it and bought a Toro Power Max 28OXE. I've had three MTD products. Not worth the money, that one was my last MTD product.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Bad Instructions, Durability

Waiting To Chomp On The Snow And Ice
Purchased the blower online and received more blower for less cost than in the "big box stores."

Started after two pulls, ran well and all of the operations were good. Waiting for the snow so I can let you know how well it performs.

Snow blowers direct was excellent to deal with. Received when promised, arrived with no damage, and went together with ease.

I have not even put gas in it yet. Just waiting for first snow, I hope it starts.

Removed 6+ Inches Without Issues
We had our first major snow storm in Minnesota dropping over 6 inches of heavy snow in my area. The unit worked well with the heavy snow. Running at 2nd speed it could not throw the snow fast enough and some would flow out the side requiring a second pass. Running at 1st speed it handled the snow very well. I may attempt to adjust the speed/cables after this below zero cold spell gets out of town. 1st speed, while handling the snow properly, was very slow and caused me to want to also... more
Pros: Features, High Quality, Durable, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Expensive, Does Not Clean As Well As Tractor Blade, The Speed Difference From 1st To 2nd Is Too Great

"Would like the tail gate service to be a free services. It is unreasonable to attempt to unload a 350lb machine without a tail gate. If your offering free shipping, it should include all required items."

George,
We appreciate your feedback on such topics. Free lift gate is something we have tried to do in the past. The issue with this is it is not free from the trucking company and a cost difficult at times for us to absorb. It is something we will keep in mind and do not completely disagree with you.

You Should Buy This
I live in Wisconsin and wanted to upgrade from my old blower to a newer model. This blower went beyond my expectations. The third stage makes a huge difference when it comes to getting rid of the snow furled at the end of a driveway by the snowplow. This thing walks right through it...and I can say that with confidence as I have 4 driveways I need to do each time it snows. My only con is that the speed selector on the snow blower is plastic and feels a bit chintzy...a metal one would be... more

Perfect machine for handling the 300+ inches of snow we receive in the Rocky Mountains of Utah each winter. I'm first one done on the block with this snow-eating machine!
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Durable
Cons: Unfortunately There Are Some Some Cheap Plastic Parts

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

New 3 Blade Snow Blower Works Great.
Had a Toro for 32 years. The Toro had the short chute which didn't overhang and hit the chain link fence when operating next to it.The new chutes throw further but they overhang too far.

I had no wires/handle to turn the wheels on the Toro so nothing ever went wrong, but turning was always work. I can appreciate the new design and ease of use but having something that doesn't work properly after two storms means more trouble down the road.
Guess I'll have to live with "progress"

Pros: Fast, Price, Quiet, New Three Blade Works Great
Cons: Wires To Control The Stoppingturning Of The Wheels Sticks, Chute Overhangs Too Far Hits The Fence

Need More Snow!
I didn't use the electric start at first and because of the loose wires for the headlight, I ripped the light bulb completely out when I pull started it. Needless to say I haven't used the headlight and need to order a new bulb. I've used it three times so far and it works great.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Price, Reliable
