Total Awsome 1st One I Have Ever Owned
My wife is 5 foot tall and she runs it more than i do. It is easy to handle, throws snow like no one business. Even wet heavy snow, don't blow as far but beats the shovel we live in northern Michigan i ordered 3 of these blowers on a Saturday all 3 were delivered thursday, all in crates and easy to put together. My 2 brothers bought the other 2 and they feel the same.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations

So Far, So Good. Waiting For Another Big Dump!
I don't think there is any blower that can blow heavy slush. The last storm was dry powder and this machine blew it so easy. Berms are too frozen so haven't used the drift cutters yet. May not have to use them since this machine has a higher opening than my old Toro with the same 28 inch width.

The price and free shipping was the determining factor, even though it's an extra $50 bucks to take it out of the truck when delivered. Hope the driver gets the $50.

Not sure why a Honda is twice... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Light Weight
Cons: Fork lift damage but not bad enough to send back.

"Let me just say, this company, Snow Blowers Direct, these guys are great. I didn't get the snow drifters that are suppose to come with this blower. I emailed them, and the very next day they sent it out, no questions asked! These guys just made me a life long customer!"

Ask If It Has The Led Headlamp
This snow thrower to me is the best there is in the market. The price here was equal to that on the manufacturer's site, yet it included shipping. It arrived perfectly and it works awesome on the first pull always so far, though I know I can plug it in. The only issue is that it came without the LED headlamp which mounts upon the auger housing, which you can see on the cub cadet website. There it reads "NEW", so I figure my snow thrower was in stock from before that came out.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: no LED headlamp

Wonderful Machine!!!!
This snow blower is unbelievable!!! I just finished snow blowing my drive way. We had a snow fall today of 12 ". This snow thrower is amazing. I finished our drive way in no time. The machine is amazing in that it cut through the heavy snow in no time.

This whole snowblower thing is totally new to me since I transferred in from Texas. The manual took some reading but I eventually got though it. The unit is a real workhorse. My only observation is the position of the flood light. The... more

"Snow Blowers Direct is wonderful. After receiving my snow blower from Cub Cadet, I had to call to ask about certain questions. They were very kind and useful, and they were encouraging to call back again."
