Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have owned two snow blowers in my life, an Ariens for 15 years and the 3X 28", albeit its now 5 years old. I fell for the “cub cadet” brand, the 3X functionality, etc. I was dumb. The 3x isn’t any better than a typical snow blower, in fact I think the design is faulty. The central blade doesn’t really chew up what is in front fast enough. It tends to push heavier deeper snow which is frustrating. The unit clogs with wet snow frequently. Also the shear pins on the center drive break all the time, so make sure you have a good supply on hand. Then engine has run well but the metal housing is now rusting. I would suggest keeping it up on blocks when possible. Never had that problem with my ariens. The manual recoil starter just broke also. I don’t like to use the electric start much as that motor can burn out over time. Having a tough time getting the proper replacement for the recoil. This machine is effective in Its pretty effective in average snow, 6-8” and not too wet. I will see how far this machine will take me then probably look for another brand. No way this will get 15 years the Ariens got me. Hope someone finds this helpful. Im not bashing, just disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product but notification on shear pins I purchased my 3X 28" HD unit in February 2017. Working very well with one exception, impellers on the inner and outer mainshaft shear pins continually break. Found out today that a new shear pin (738-05273) is now available to replace original. Would've been nice to have gotten the notification via the registration I submitted that this new sheer pin was available. Not providing this information to customers of 3X models puts us at a disadvantage until we either contact the dealer or call Cub Cadet directly to find out this information. A better job could be done in the future to notify those who have registered that a change in part number has been issued.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Purchased the 3X 28 inch snow blower in the beginning of last winter (2019/2020). Only used a handful of times last season with generally heavy wet snow. Like mentioned in other posts it tends, to push a lot of snow to the side. I find that the auger pushes the snow out to the side forcing multiple passes. This is even the case when I try to take half width overlapping passes. As far as the capability to bust through snowplow piles, I find that the auger has a tendency to just climb up onto the piles even when snow is relatively soft. I've only used twice this year. One 8-10 snow in which it did "OK " at best since I had to go over the driveway twice. Today I went out to quickly clear ~3 inches of light powdery snow and found that the snow blower was only throwing the snow approximately 3 to 24 INCHES. It was literally falling out of the chute onto the tire. I would upload a video, but it seems I need to have a YouTube account to do so. Very disappointing waste of money. Definitely not like the specs, advertising, and product video's describe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cub cadet should recall this product I purchased the snow blower ( 3 stage x 28 width) on 01/29/18. The product would not blow heavy wet snow,It constantly clogged. It has been returned to the dealer on a warranty. After service it still clogged. I had my 2 stage cub cadet refurbished to remove snow. I can not get any satisfaction from the manufacturer. Do not purchase this model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Performance with wet snow I bought the 3 stage 28" snow blower last year as we live in VT. The Cub Cadet ads say it will go through slushy and wet snow, but my experience has been different. It does fine with dry powder snow but when the snow get wet enough to make a snowball, it tends to get plugged up inside the chute and augers. Even tried a Teflon spray but it only works until it wears off. Yesterday we had snow and I spent 3 hours almost trying to clear our driveway. At least 1/3 of the time was spent stopping and digging out the machine. An awful lot of money spent on something that under performs. I would have been better off taking the $1300 and putting it towards a small Kubota or JD tractor with a bucket.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works great, when it works I bought this at the tail end of last winter, I paid more to get a Cub Cadet because I understood it to be high quality. Should have been a warning when the first one I tried to buy blew a gasket during test start up at the store. But, I went and got another one anyways. It should come with a parts kit, as it tends to break down quickly. First thing to break was the auger drive cable, the small hooked spring that engages the belt snapped within 3 hours of use. I have since bought a new cable and a spare. Next, the auger drive belt shredded apart and my 7 months pregnant wife had to shovel out while I was out of town. When it is running, it throws the snow like nothing else and kicks but. It chops through deep snow with little effort and is a Godsend on days where it snows multiple times. Just wish the parts were better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product works very well on gravel Bought this snow thrower to replace an old troublesome 2-stage unit. Used on a fairly large home parking area and long driveway - all gravel. Have used twice and am very satisfied overall. Great features with hand warmer, bright LED lights, electric start, and multiple forward drive speeds. 3-stage operation is superior to 2-stage in both speed and snow throwing capability. Observations after day & night use: LED lights are nice and bright but their position on the unit points about half of the light up in the air when shoes are adjusted to raise the thrower as high off the ground as possible (the unit tilts back with shoes adjusted to their lowest position). The 2 reverse (Rev) speeds could be faster. R1 is virtually useless and R2 is only slightly better. I find I can pull the unit backwards much faster than using Rev - or I use Rev a little and then change direction by using Fwd and the left or right brake to pivot. I am very happy with performance on gravel. I would go through quite a number of shear pins on my old unit but have yet to break a pin on this unit. I like the cable control for the snow chute but I find it does not open the chute to its max distance setting. However, this may be correctable by adjusting the cables setting. Use of the brake controls to pivot is easy when turning left but a little tricky when trying to turn right. The right-hand handle controls the drive gear and you have work a little to reach the brake trigger while holding down the drive lever. My only real complaint is the Rev speeds. But in the end, I am happy with the features, performance and price. I would definitely recommend this unit.
