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 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 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised!! I have used a 24 inch snow blower for 20 years. I have a driveway that is a couple hundred feet long that requires many tight turns to get the job done. I got the Cub Cadet 3X 28 because of the power and its ability to throw wet snow. I was worried about the size of it and its ability to move it around as needed in my driveway. The 3X 28 did not disappoint as advertised when it came to going through the heavy wet stuff left by the snow plow at the end of the drive. What surprised me was that this unit was far easier to maneuver then the much smaller lighter 24 inch I was accustomed to. The turning levers on the handles were easy to learn how to use and made turning on a dime a snap. Lifting the bucket off the ground if needed was also much easier than the old 24 inch unit because of better weight distribution. I didn't think I needed the lights or the heated handles but I don't think I would blow snow without either of them ever again. Love this new machine!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine is a snow monster. From 3 inches to slush to the town's winter wall at the end of my driveway, no challenge was too big. I find places to snow blow because using this model is fun not work. The throwing power, ease of use, and heated grips make going out in the snow no longer a chore. Have recommended to 3 people already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Cub Cadet Without doubt this machine is the best I've ever owned. Cutting power and manipulation best on the market.
