Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not blow snow, only air. Worst machine I have ever owned. Shear pins break constantly. Shear pins should break when contacting rocks and blocks of ice, not snow. Useless for blowing snow. Purchased this year, have tried with every storm this year trying to find a way to make it work, every time I gave up and finished with my old machine that did not fail.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hate it ! makes light work of light fluffy snow, but if it is wet snow... forget it, got 2" of wet snow last week, spent more time unclogging the augers and the chute, and replacing shear pins, I was creeping along in first gear, trying to clear about 30' of sidewalk, had to stop forward movement every couple of inches, or else everything clogged up, the impella would stop spinning the middle auger keeps trying to pack the snow in, it gets so compact that is shears the pins. and the smell of burning rubber from the belts filled the air. today I tightened up the cable slack so hopefully this will put more pressure on the belts and plates. I would love to sell or trade this in for something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing WANTS to move snow!!! Bought it to replace a 22 year old track drive Craftsman that finally broke beyond repair. (Can't get parts.) This thing wants to go! It's so fast and torquey that I've only used it on forward speed #1 so far. Haven't had any snow since I bought it two weeks ago, so I decided to tackle some of the "plow droppings" to widen the entrances to my driveways. These snow piles were solid enough for me to walk on top of them without making barely any footprints on them. The machine tore apart these piles like they were butter, softened and whipped butter at that! My 26" 3X works better than my tracked Craftsman ever did on the plow droppings, even after the droppings were re-frozen to near solid! Very happy I bought it! Although, now I'm just wishing for some more snow so that I don't have to lament not waiting for an end of year sale to have bought it then!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Was time for a new snow blower this year, and after much research, had decided on the cub cadet 3x26. Not too wide, fairly easy to handle. But the MAJOR reason I decided to go with the 3 stage was I was tired of dealing with the end of my driveway where the snowplow loads up all the heavy packed snow. Well, it goes through it no problem. This snow blower will not throw snow 40' as some sites state, but will do the job. I had considered Ariens and Husqvarna snow blowers, but went with the Cub Cadet. Feel I got a good deal from my local Home Depot on it paying an even $1000 after price match and using military discount. We will see how it holds up to the snow this year. Will also make sure to run non ethanol gas through it at the end of the season so the carb doesn't gum up. Great product, great price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to handle snow blower but... I recently bought a Cub Cadet - 3X 26 snow blower to replace a 25 year old snow blower. The Cub Cadet is much easier to maneuver and I love the heated handles. However, the Cub Cadet does not throw the snow far enough. The old snow blower could easily throw the snow 25 feet across my double-wide driveway but the Cub Cadet cannot, regardless of the depth or type of snow (wet or dry). I expected the Cub Cadet 3-stage to throw the snow much, much further.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cub Cadet 3X26 One pro for this snow thrower is it is easy to start, doesn’t matter how cold it is outside it starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull every time, except what’s mentioned below. Now the cons: This snow thrower eats shear pins, if you buy one buy an ample supply of shear pins. Next, reverse gear is far to slow, you end up just pulling it back by hand and let me tell you that wears you out ( I’m 69 so it’s a work out), the power steering option, works ok if you have gloves on, but if you are wearing mittens, forget it, LED headlights, whomever decided that led lights were better has never did much snow throwing, they don’t get warm enough to melt the snow off them and after a few minutes they are useless, my next comment has to be for the rope pull, there are so many cut in groves on then and it fills with snow and then melts because of the warm motor and if you stop and shovel for a spell, you “may” have a frozen rope or if it comes out it won’t return, my last comment is that the chute plugs up a lot and you gotta stop and clean it out. I’m thinking there wasn’t a lot of RDT&E done on this model before it was released. If I had it to do over, I would purchase a Toro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Civilized Beast There is a feeling of quiet power as the Cub Cadet moves smoothly along while throwing snow 40 feet away. Not as loud as prior machines I have owned. The steering feature makes turns effortless and the chute controls are easy to use. The third stage allows you to go faster without bogging down. Overall one of the best snow throwers I have owned. I (almost) look forward now to getting out after a big snow and putting my Cub Cadet snow thrower to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SHEAR PINS!! I replaced and old troybult 4.5HP 2 stage blower 18 years old. Go this last year... only used it once during a storm, broke a couple sheer pins. Snow was not fluffy ... maybe hit a piece of ice. This Just got the first storm of this season.. Got it all up and running.. started out... FIRST PASS 6" of snow (NOT WET , but not FLUFF) normal stuff. 70ft straight run. ONLY IN FIRST GEAR... Broke 2 Shear pins ... Replaced them... Grrr... Second Pass 2 more shear pins ... replaced them... GRRRRRR... After another couple passes I broke a couple more... Finally after 2 hours I have broken over 12 Shear pins and want to put this thing in the street for a plow to hit , so I don't have to look at it anymore. I should have bought a 2 stage... this snow Blender "Accelerator" "Shear pin eater" Is driving me nutz! is there a kit I can buy to make this a normal 2 stage blower? I'm debating on either putting straight bolts in it.. everyone says that bolts will probably break the gearbox and the accelerator won't work.. BUT> Its not really working now anyways.. I spent more time replacing the sheer pins than actually moving snow... My wife was laughing at me and was doing better with a Shovel.. I would be happy if this blower performed half as good as it as it said it could. Last season I bought a bag of 50 pins.. thinking I would be set for the life of the machine with this many..... at this rate I will need more pins before march.. and I will need a magnet on my lawnmower in the spring to pickup all the little metal brown pin parts everywhere...
