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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Snowblower! I purchased this from a local CC dealer. I uses it on our first snowfall of 6" of heavy packy snow. It literally threw the stuff across the street. It did suffer a work stoppage because they connect the chute cable to the rotator with a roll pin that worked free, rendering the machine unable to control where to put the discharge. Cub Cadet - please fix this bad design and use a cotter pin to connect. After a minute of pinning the cable back, it made very short work of the snow. The heated grips are awesome. Got nice and warm thru my gloves in the cold weather. The lights are very bright, but not too bright to blind you in a snowstorm. Big grippy tires are very sure-footed, even on ice. This thing does not fit thru the service for of my garage like my last one did, despite being the same size cut. The engine starts easy with just a quick tug on the rope. I cleared the sidewalk all the way to the end of the block and back in 4th gear, throwing 6" of snow. This thing is worth every penny. Just replace that pin with a 13 cent cotter pin and you're good to go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so happy! I initially bought a 3x28 in Oct '18 from Home Depo. It was delivered in the box as I expected. It was easy to assemble. Once put together, it ran fine but would not move or turn the auger. The auger belt was not on the drive shaft, it was twisted and still had a rubber band on it. I fixed that and then it still wouldn't move fwd or bwd. It appeared that the drive belt was old and stretched out. I returned it for a full refund. I then contacted my local dealer (I just assumed that he would be more expensive) and he provided me one for the same price, with free setup, delivery and training on it's use. This one is much heavier that my old 28 inch two stage which was getting old. I'm disappointed in the 3x28. It pushes snow as one previous reviewer showed in his video. Three snows so far and it pushes more in the lighter snows where I have to back up and ram the pile to get it into the auger. Also whenever I stop and move it backward (like to turn around) it always leaves a pile of snow 3-4 inches deep. I've learned to pull off the side before backing up or just turning in a circle so not to leave a pile. My driveway always has some clumps left on it, where with the two stage it did not. The 3x28 works, I'm just not happy with it. Cub Cadet doesn't seem to have a customer satisfaction policy like Home Depo. I talked to the dealer and he gave me no satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower! I have had the 3X 28" snow blower for a full year. I live in the Adirondacks, near Tug Hill Plateau (snow country). I have not run into any kind or amount of snow that it has not handled. I want to say that I use the spray on "no-stick" snow spray, basically silicone and even the slushiest snow goes across my 12 foot drive. I snow blow 4 drives/yards including a large area of my lawn in the back for my wimpy dog to use. I do several "trails" for her to go down and go to the bathroom. Not specific to this machine, but early in the year when the ground is still soft it will sometimes pick up and throw dirt when I get off the blacktop or in the back yard. It doesn't slow the machine down, but makes a mess sometimes. In the spring the grass comes right back. Start very easy and even starts first pull if still warm. It might take a few pulls if cold. Cranking that big motor by hand is no easy task. But electric starts first thing every time. Using it on all 4 drives, I use less than 1/2 a tank of gasoline. (I use 90+ octane, no alcohol gas). The one thing I noticed is the more snow the better it works and throws the snow. I kept hitting things and had to replace a few shear pins, but that was my fault and was pretty easy to replace. Overall..... Great machine

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed I have been a fan of Cub Cadet for years. The three stage 28” snowblower was a big let down. Purchased from Tractor Supply. Got it home and it was missing the entire choke assembly. Tractor Supply could not replace snowblower for 5 weeks. Cub Cadet customer service mailed me the parts and I had to assemble it myself. They apologize but never offered compensation of any kind. then can the first snow fall. I admit the snow was heavy but not deep. All the snowblower did was push the snow. I used a neighbor’s old two stage snowblower which did great. I returned it for a full refund. What a disappointment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useless for wet snow I bought this with high hopes, and was happy with the performance early in the year when we had a lot of snow that was of normal density...not fluffy, not wet. I enjoyed the easy starting and the heated handgrips. Seems generally well made. But we had quite a few late-season snowfalls where the snow tends to be heavier and wetter, and the 3x auger was constantly clogging. That makes the machine virtually useless for me, as we often have heavier, wetter snows here. After questioning several shops in the area and looking online for possible solutions, I was told that I am not alone in my frustration with this machine in wet snow. One forum I was on suggested lubricants or paints for the auger chute, impeller kits, etc. For this kind of money I shouldn't have to be modifying the machine. I'm getting rid of it. Cub Cadet offered no suggestions or remedies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clogs & Shear pins Purchased from Tractor Supply November 2016. Immediately had issues with frequent shear pin breaks. On the 2nd use, December of 16 the V belt for the auger broke. This year I have replaced the cable for the auger control as the spring at the end broke. I also replaced a pin that controls the chute control. Today I replaced the same V Belt for the auger drive. This prompted me to write this review. I frequently have to clear out snow that has packed around the augers to get them moving again. I am ready to return this snowblower and work with a 2-stage. I have fewer problems with the 2-stage at work. Are the side augers suppose to be of different size? Mine is (see the picture, the one on the right has less of an angle), and there is a large gap between the side augers and the forward augers where snow will accumulate and not feed into the impeller. The one good aspect is that I can generally get through the end of the driveway hard snowpack, better than regular snow which it seems to like to push. Handwarmers are nice. I can pull start it with one pull.
