524swe Will Not Start
I used this snow blower for two years with no problems. The 3rd year it will NOT start. I pulled the spark plug and there is oil on the plug. Seriously, after two years the engine needs work. This was my first Cub Cadet and my last!
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive

Mike,
We do apologize for the bad experience you have had with your Cub Cadet snow blower. In a situation like, we would suggest taking the unit into a local Cub Cadet servicing dealer to have it fixed. This sounds very much like an issue with the gasket cover in the engine. Your unit did come with a 3-year warranty and from the sounds of it, you should still be within that warranty so the fix should be covered. If you need any assistance in finding a local Cub Cadet servicing dealer in your area, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Changing The Oil
I bought my cadet last year (just-in-time) and changed the oil at the end of the season. The oil release spigot is too short and does not clear the frame, so oil dripped down the frame and it was too close to the body to place a pan under it.

Consequently I spent more time cleaning up the oil than actually draining it. I suggest extending the pipe as I did and make it simpler and cleaner.

Cant Recommend
Bought this 4 years ago. Broke down for the second time in 2 months, this time its the pistol control cable/bolt. Prior issue was a coil that you literally have to tear unit totally apart to repair. $300 bill and now this. Can't wait to see how much this costs...better off to just pay someone to plow. Cheaply made in China and not designed for ANY easy repair... Pistol grip/chute control is bad design hurts your wrist and elbow..use both hands or BUY SOMETHING ELSE! Sorry tractor Supply..these... more

Nice Unit Well Priced
Bought this 524SWE to replace my 5.5 MTD single speed dinosaur snow blower. Arrived in well packed case. I am technically challenged but even I could put together and run. Love the tight turning circle ,heated grips and powerful motor. It ripped through powdered and slushy snow well. A pal of mine bought the 924HV Husqvarna model. Upon seeing the ease of turning on the Cub he informed me he wished his snow thrower had come with that option. He jokingly offered me the chance to trade machines.... more

New York Snow
This is my second season using this snow blower and I am not impressed. It constantly goes up in the air with deep snow and I have to go back and forth. It will not clear the mess at the end of the driveway after the plows come. The snow also gets stuck in the chute and conks out and I can not get it started with the pull start. I have to drag it back to the garage to use the electric start. I hurt both my wrists and thumbs last year and had the same problem this year. Wish I had gotten the 3... more

Paul,
We are sorry to hear of the issues you are having with your Cub Cadet snow blower. We would suggest contacting Cub Cadet directly due to the fact they warranty and manufacture the product. Cub Cadet can be reached at 1-877-282-8684.

Two stage snow blowers can have the tendency to ride up on snow banks. The best thing to do is ease into the piles of snow and there is going to be some back and forth from time to time. It is just a common issue when it comes to two stage snow blowers. Even the 3-stage can do this from time to time. It does diminish the "riding up the hill", but won't completely alleviate it. The only way to really counter this problem is with a track drive unit, and that is definitely not always convenient. They cost more and are harder to maneuver.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us.

No Luck Keeping It Running
We just purchased this item from Costco, 3 months ago figuring we were ready for snow. NOT will not stay running. Pull cord broke! Not very happy with this.

We havent been able to use it yet and we had aour 1st 2 storms. What a waste of money and time.

Greatly Disapoionted
I bit the bullet this year and bought a new snow Cub Cadet, I had an Ariens that I had for 11 years. it did a great job but was getting old and was always needing repair. I bought the new Cub Cadet 208 CC I did a lot (1 1/2 years ) of research and review reading. I settled on the Cub Cadet. I live in Revere MA today is the big day of the blizzard of 2015 and my brand new snow blower won't start.

I used a brand new gas can, brand new gas the recommended (5w-30) oil kept it covered from the... more

524swe Is The Way To Go
Snowblowersdirect is the way to go hands down. Customer Service is great, and shipping times are very reasonable. So far I am very happy with my 524SWE. From unloading off the tractor trailer, assembly and testing out in my driveway was under 30 minutes. Power steering feature works great I tested it out on my asphalt driveway, wet grass, and loose gravel, it performed great on all three surfaces. Definitely a back saver with out a doubt. Added a little bit of gas, checked the oil and the... more

Finally Have Snow Blower Now Waiting For That 1st Snow Fall
After much searching and comparing I finally pulled the trigger and ordered my Cub Cadet with power steering from PED. The snow blower arrived as stated when ordered, delivered with no issues to my garage. The hardest part was removing the shipping crate, man do they build a cone of protection around this equipment. Once I had the crate removed the setup of the snow blower was quick and easy.

The first push or the electric start button and she came to life. After an hour or so of... more
