When you get it delivered is their a lot of assembly required?
Kurt Pappalardo 
from Massachusetts 
August 10, 2012
Answer
Kurt - assembly is pretty minimal. You will need to fold up the handle assembly and tighten it into place. You will need to attach the discharge chute and connect the chute rotation rod to the dash. Add oil and fill it up with gas. That's pretty much the extent of the assembly on this model.

Are snow blowers shipped assembled? If not, how much assembly is required?
Kathy T 
from Connecticut 
November 20, 2011
Answer
These units would not come fully assembled. The units would need the handle bars to be pulled in their upright position and attach the chute. Other than this, that is it.

I have the Cub Cadet 526SWE. I've noticed there are greas fittingd at the ends of the auger shaft and on the gear box. My last MTD made snower blower didn't have these and there is no mention in the owner's manual that these require grease. What are the for?
Steve Korth 
from Illinois 
October 12, 2011
Answer
These would be for adding grease if you needed to add more. When it comes to the Cubs, they are a little more high end than the other MTDs, so they do offer some more maintenance advantages so you can keep the product in good order longer. This is not something you have to do all the time. I would suggest doing once a season.

kriss i am interested inthe cub cadet model 526swe,i live in north carolina,we get heavy snows sometimes.last year we had about 18 in. at one time.will this model handle snows this deep? also i have a complete gravel driveway,is this a problem? thank you
George Race 
from North Carolina

Answer
This snow blower would have no problem in getting through snow this deep. A two stage snow blower would also be your best option with gravel because the auger never actually touches the ground. So no problem at all.
