Better Late Than Never
This snow blower from Cub Cadet is a beast. Was able to power through snow left by the city snow plows that are near the sidewalk curbs. We are talking almost 28" of snow out from the curb and close to 10 inches of snow high.

Did a quick test run and definitely would recommend it but make sure your garage has space because it is definitely wide.

ABF Freight Shipping experience was excellent. Driver took the snow blower off the truck with a pallet jack and just set it anywhere I... more

Terrible Machine
Used it three times, had to replace 8 shear pins, the third shear pin broke and could not access it. It has been sent to the repair shop just in time for the next snow storm. Wrote Bob to complain, got no response Machine is three months old.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

Overall Very Pleased With This Purchase
Had been debating getting a snow blower for several years now...due to a recent auto accident back injury I figured now was the time. I saw this unit on special back in November '13. Was debating between the CC 528SWE and 524SWE, decided to go with the more powerful machine instead of maneuverability advantage with the 24".

Purchased the 528SWE and had some issues with the first snowstorm (mainly getting used to the unit itself). I've learned two things with this snow blower: Do not run... more

Very Nice Machine
The only thing I thought was a little difficult was the joy stick for auger other than that ate a Michigan snow storm snow 14" with no problem. No bog what so ever, only used once so still yet to be determined, very happy so far.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: I Do Not Like Joy Stick For Chute Control Other Than That Awsome

Cub Cadet Rocks!!!
This blower has a very big powerful motor not found in your typical home improvement store. My first snow storm was 10" of very heavy and slushy. All my neighbors blowers got clogged and could not handle the weight of the snow. My Cubby cut threw it like powder! They all where asking about my Cubby and where amazed at its performance. I also love the bright yellow while everyone else has those red machines from those home stores. Cost was a little more, but well worth it.
Pros: Features, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

"Great prices. A lot of hard to find equipment. Shipping was awesome dropped off at house with lift gate and driver used pallet jack and put in garage. They do charge $50 for lift gate. I declined that service yet still got the lift gate service at no charge."

Used It Once
I've had 1 snowfall since my purchase. Cleared a three inch snowfall from the back yard for the dogs. They seemed to appreciate it.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Quiet

Worth. The Money
Ordered the snow blower on Sunday. Received it that Thursday. Fast delivery. Set up very easy. Tried just a little snow on side of driveway. Appears to be easy to use . Also pretty quiet . Haven't had a snowstorm since . Doesn't even comes close to comparison to my old snow blower. This snow blower is much superior as far as I can tell. . Easy to steer with power steering.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features

Stopped Throwing Once Clogged, Hard To Replace Shear Pin
Used the machine 3x. After 1st use, shear pin on rear 3rd stage auger sheared off. Very difficult to reach, especially since the pin was stuck in hole. Had to buy a $24 ping hammer (the smallest Home Depot sold) to be able to get leverage to knock out the stuck pin in such tight quarters. This past snow storm, 2/3/14, after 15 minutes, the machine got clogged with snow had to dig it out of the machine. Worked again and clogged after a minute. Perhaps I ran the traction control without... more

Top Performer-528
Highly recommend this model for Northeast Snow conditions especially this past year.
Steering is awesome and takes a little getting used to (my pervious snowblower never had this feature).
The best feature is the joystick snow throw control which works well and also gets a little getting used when you never had this option in the past. Starts up real easy, gear change is fast.
I am pleased with my purchase at this time.
I received my item fast and packaged well with no issues by the shipper... more

Wow what a nice machine. Very easy to manuver around with the zero turn. The assembly was nothing to do when it arrived.
Overall a real nice machine with plenty of power to move the snow. Shipping was fast. Yes I would recommend this to anyone looking to get one for a 2-3 car drive way.

No More Cold Hands
I installed the heated hand grips the day after I received them.
Installation was very easy, took about an hour.
The recent snow storm, the 26th of Dec., gave me the opportunity to check them out.
The grips heated very rapidly and wearing light gloves my hands stayed very warm.
In the past, my hands always got very cold even with two pairs of gloves.
Excellent product.
