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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my new CubCadet Snowblower I had a smaller CubCadet 24 inch and decided that I needed just a little bit wider swath. I've used the 3 stage blower over some very difficult conditions and have been very happy with it. My drive has had heavy frozen icy snow and also powdery. In each case the snowblower was able to lift and clean my driveway very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this blower is so easy to use I bought this snow blower to replace a 40 plus year old 26 inch Craftsman snow blower that is very hard to use . This blower is so easy to use and cleans so well it has cut my cleaning time to about one third the time it use to take with the old machine. If I had known how good and easy it worked I would have replaced my old machine last year. The engine starts rite up and runs so well it seems to have an ample amount of power to propel the machine up my hilly drive way and throw the snow to the sides. IT has no problem clearing the snow build up at the end of the drive way that the snow plow has created by plowing the roadway. The power steering makes it so easy to move around the drive way and to get into tight places. It even makes it easy to park in its storage place in the garage when its not running by using the levers to make the machine free wheel. I did the first oil change with no problem so easy. The LED lighting is so bright it makes cleaning at night not a problem. The heated hand grips work so well that your hands stay so worm that you can work for hours . The gas and oil fills are so easy to get to. The starting instructions and the controls are marked so well its easy to get started. This machine looks so good and feels like it is so well put together that it is such a pleasure to use .I think the three stage impeller works so well I have not had any problems with the chute clogging even with wet heavy snow .I think this three stage system is well worth the extra cost and highly recommend it. This snow blower makes me feel so sure that there is no winter storm that I can't keep up with. I feel like the only thing to stop me now is to run out of gas. I would recommend this product to any one .

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 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.
