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

If you want a snow blower that looks nice, this is it! If you want a snow blower that works, this isn't it!

I bought this snow blower in October 2013, used it twice during winter of 2013-2014, and put it away in my shed. Fall of 2014, I did a complete oil change, checked the plug, everything! Took it out during first snow storm of 2015, shear pins went, had a piece of plastic in auger, replaced them, then after that, I was snow blowing, and the belts went.

I could not find parts... more

Walt,
We are sorry to hear of the issue you have had with your Cub Cadet snow blower. Our advice would be to contact Cub Cadet directly at 1-877-282-8684. I'm sure they could get a local servicing dealer involved that could help.

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

Update After 1/26/2015 - 1/27/20115 Blizzard Storm
Had a weird issue with leaking fuel but it turned out after I took things apart was that the carburetor choke flap door was setup differently then the Ariens. I now have to remember to close the choke completely and then turn off the snow blower.

Just an FYI for some users of this snow blower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

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

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

Cub Cadet 28 Inch
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.

Lots Of Snow
This Cub Cadet is an awesome piece of machinery, the ability to turn is great even I can use it as well as my husband. It runs quietly, smooth, and can throw snow quite the distance. We have a large driveway and clears it with no problem. My husband has arthritis in his knees, and says its not work at all compared to the old machine. Love the Cadet. And the price for value.
