Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Cub Cadet is a lemon I purchased a Cub Cadet 3X 26” snow blower in October 2018 from Home Depot. I relied on the Consumer Reports review and ratings. These 3X models were described in CR as “blowers on steroids” and “if you get a lot of wet, heavy snow….you will want to consider one”. We had a very mild season, only 2 small storms of less than 6 “. On the 4th of March we had a storm of 10 to 12 inches of snow, exactly what I bought the Cadet 3X to handle. It was a disaster. The auger and impeller would stop, although engaged by the controls. (It behaved as if the drive belts were not working) The machine would clog and snow had to be cleared from auger area. The same problem and clearing process was repeated several times. This was not a very heavy snow, but the Cub couldn’t handle it and forget about trying to get through the plow pile at the end of the drive. After several clogs, I had to get out my 20 year old Bolens to finish the job. So I ask you the following: Are the Consumer Reports ratings wrong? Is the Cub Cadet 3X just a bad design? Did Home Depot assemble the unit wrong? What steps can I take to get a working snow blower? Customer service was a waste of time. I couldn’t be more disappointed in Cub Cadet, Home Depot and Consumer Reports.

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 5 out of 5 by from Used twice so far The reason I bought this is because we have had many huge snowstorms in RI for the past few years. When I purchased this in November 2018 to be prepared for this year my son joked that we wouldn't get any snow because of it. He was right. Nothing fell until March. 2 small storms but it was 6 inches of heavy wet snow. The snowblower worked great. Even cleared the heavy plow mess at the end of the driveway with ease. Hopefully I get to give it a real workout next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great As usual we bought it and it only snowed twice. I barely got used to using but sure the job a lot easier. Before I got to use it the second time my great neighbor had the job done but it was easy to use the one time I used it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage and they don't stand behind their product I bought this and winter 2017/18. Chute control rod snapped in half on first use. Used it three times the whole winter. After second use, augers failed to stop spinning when ever is released because the belt snapped. Cub cadet customer service says that it falls under normal maintenance so the belt is not covered beyond 30 days of purchase regardless of the 3-year manufacturer warranty. I guess you're supposed to expect your belt to break every month with regular use. I also paid for an extra three years extended coverage from the retailer, but because it's still under the manufacturer warranty I'm out of luck. so after all that still had to pay out of pocket to get this piece of garbage fixed. To late to return and who's going to but a broken machine? If I could return it, I definitely would. Oh, and buy plenty of extra shear pins because these things snap EXTREMELY easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't have survived without the 3X 26 I have had nothing but excellent performance from my 3X 26 Snow Blower this winter. I have snow from 5' to 7' piled next to our driveway and on the park strip. There have been days where I have to plow two or three times a day to keep up with a storm and the 3X 26 never let me down. I even plow the street, because it may be 24 hours before we see a plow, so we can make it out of our neighborhood. I replaced a 30" stage 2 snow blower with this 26" one, I can cover more ground quicker with the stage 3 blower than my 30" stage 2 could handle. Three of my neighbors plan on getting this model since on several occasions I have helped clear their apron on their driveways after the plows finally come through. So far this blower has been an excellent purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Bought at the end of last winter; used is for the first time in November of 2018. R1 was not working; then it would not "throw" the did push it, however. Took it to get repaired under warranty, and have not used it since I got it back. Let's hope it works as advertised in the future
