Heavy Duty
I have not used this yet for blowing snow. (waiting for it to snow) I just need to say how this blower is made with some thick steel. Other blowers I saw are made with thin steel compared to this 3XHD 30" model. It also has the largest engine too.

I will give another review after some snow blowing... I can't wait for it to snow!!

Not Happy
I used my three stage blower today in six inches off snow and it failed me. The snow was not wet and heavy and broke pins really easy. need a larger pin for that and need one piece auger on both side instead off two single pieces. Because one goes down it takes the one next to it down too! I wish I would had stayed with the two stage blower, less problems.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Light Weight, fast in forward
Cons: Durability, pins breaking, slow reverse, too many auger pieces

Unbelievable!!! Great Machine
I am very happy with this machine. It tossed heavy, wet snow like a pro. The hand warmers work great and the headlights are amazing. The electric start is an added bonus. Quality throughout.

Powerful Machine
The 3xHD 30" arrived in a large crate with the waybill indicating #308 lbs. The lift gate service was worth while. The assembly process was easy. There was a small learning curve to grasp the features of the machine. Its 420cc engine does a great job clearing the snow. (420cc = 13 hp)

Starts easily. The only issue I have had is getting the skid shoes to the correct height. I had to really tighten them to stay put. The heated handles do not emit much heat. The 3XHD is in the moderate... more

So Far, Unimpressed With Delivery, Assembly Instructions
I have not yet had a chance to use this snow blower. My experience so far is only in the delivery, unpacking and assembly.

I was disappointed that the local deliver agent did not use an appropriately sized truck for the package or for the road and driveway situation. I was also disappointed that the driver was not willing to assist in unloading the package at our garage.

The assembly instructions provided with the equipment were hard to read and follow. The booklet attempts to cover... more

Best Non-commercial Snow Blower
I bought this to replace my Ariens Deluxe. The Ariens was only 2-3 years old (also purchased from Snow Blowers Direct), but it wasn't keeping up on days with over 2 feet of snow. Although, I haven't used it much yet, the Cub Cadet seems much more powerful and a much better fit for my house (I have a lot of driveway to cover).
Pros: Features, High Quality
Cons: Loud

Cub Cadet 3xhd
I had an older snow blower for more than 26 years. I bought this one early to be prepared for the Northeast winter. Although I haven't used it yet I can say how it compares to my old unit is fantastic. It seems to be very well made. All the controls are easy to use and thought out. Can't wait to use the electric start.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations
