  1 Question
Q: Purchase question-Are the drive wheels both powered or is there a differential like a car? Our steep drive, WV, 10% x 300 ft. needs no differential slipping. Thx
by Andrew R Ceperley from West Virginia on November 23, 2015

A: Andrew - Both wheels are powered - there is no differential. But there is power steering to lock one wheel to turn it easier.

Best Bang For The Buck
Used it once already - easy to set up and the new look is nice for 2017 with the dual LED lights. Steel chute is my preference. I like the extra width and HP vs the 24" and found the best price here without a doubt. Shipping was smooth.
Pros: Price, High Quality

Cub Cadet 2x (26") 243cc Two Stage Snowblower
Arrived before they said it would and took 15 minutes to assemble. One thing if you buy one check the oil level, because they said shipped with out oil & gas. I put the 600 parts of oil in it and checked it again then it was over full, so we drained it all out & to my surprise it had the correct 600 parts of oil in it! We started it and every thing worked OK. I like the P/S on it and the 2nd & 3rd speed seems like that's all I will need. Like all the features looking at you on the... more

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Mike,
Thank you for your purchase of the Cub Cadet 2X 26" HP. We are happy to hear that you are pleased with your purchase. For clarification, all 2X and 3X Snow Throwers in the X Series line-up are shipped from the factory with oil already in the engine. This was not an error. I am happy to hear you were able to avoid any issues and the unit is up and running.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need any further details regarding your Cub Cadet Snow thrower.

Let it SNOW!

Thank you,
Cub Cadet

"I had a good and nice buy through Snow Blowers Direct & friendly sales person who got me the most for my money! I've been looking on here the past 3 years, but too late for the one I wanted but liked this one also and price was the same. When it snows we'll see!"

Just As Advertised
After much research for make and model as well as price, I settled on the Cub Cadet 26" two stage. SB Direct had the best price and most helpful reviews of the various models. I went to Home Depot to actually look at and get the feel of the machine, but the price at Home Depot, especially with tax would have been $100 more than I spent at SBD!

I could not pass up the tax free, free delivery available and ordered the machine far cheaper than I could have bought it locally in Buffalo,... more

Waiting To Use
This review is for SBD since I haven't used the snowblower yet. Did a lot of research! I have an 80 yard long paved driveway with a half-court basketball area on one end. SBD has a very reasonable price, especially when you consider free delivery and tax free.

The 2X 526HP arrived within a week in good condition-well packaged. 15 min to set up the machine. Very happy with the purchase experience. We'll see how it performs when the snow falls.

Performance still unknown.
Pros: Features, Price

Sorry Bought Cub Cadet
Bought my snow blower in February 2015. Used it a couple times that year till I got my John Deere snow-blower back from repairs. ( which I had since 1991). Well I used my cub cadet for a few hours on Monday, when I went to use it again the following evening my augers would not turn and I ended up burning the belt.

When I took it to the dealer I was told there was condensation build up in the gear box. I am still not sure what that all means as this is outdoor winter equipment. I clean it... more

Cub Cadet & Mowing The Lawn--
Sort of short. It is pretty and has not used much gas yet, probably because we have not had any snow this year---3 foot on ground last year.
