Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable piece of equipment! Purchased the 30 inch 3x with tracks. Using in North Dakota.I try to give the best actual use reviews that i can good and bad. Lets start at the top. The controls are great, the hand controls these are larger, if you have small hands it may pose a small issue, but, the levers are not hard to press down either. When moving forward with the auger on you can take your hand off of the auger control for one handed use this is good to have sometimes personally I don't use it much. The triggers for the zero turn capability are great and the feature works great, although, it seems to be easier for me to just move the machine by my own power, getting the blower to move quickly with this feature would mean stopping and switching to one of the faster gears to turn around fast. The Chute worm drive works great, on a few occasions i have had the cables that run over the chute gear box hang up on that box and i have to move them off or it wont turn, not a big deal. the lever controlling the chutes directional out put, great no problems. One thing i didn't understand is that the all metal chute sits on a polymer base, glass filled plastic i guess? I would have preferred steel paying 2k for a machine you would think they wouldn't cheap out on that. Heating hand grips get toasty enough, if you have big gloves and its 40 below then they are ok. The gear speeds are what you would expect although R1 is basically useless, but, that has been my experience with all blowers, just go right to R2, 6 is perfect for top end fast. The engine on the machine is impeccable, the thing is a monster, it seems like the more load you give it the more it wants to throw snow even it holds a TON of gas too, which i love, and its pretty quiet in my opinion for a 420cc engine. As we move down you have the height adjustment, transport, gravel, packed etc. This feature works great and they really thought about the settings i think, they are great for each application, although you will likely use them for something other than what is marked. The lever on the adjustment can be pretty hard to move for a smaller person though. On to the Tracks, these things are great, i have to blow out tons of snow out of my yard and sometimes you run up on snow pack, wheels dig in and you are stuck, the tracks just keep on moving love this feature. The tracks will slip, internally, when they are wet or slightly icy or if you are trying to go forward or back and you are decently stuck, not my favorite, hasnt stopped me but i would prefer to not have to put extra wear on that part. The 30 inch cut is what it is, 30 inches, the fact that the engine and the auger will handle anything you stuff in there is what really sells me. it throws and throws and doesn't quit. The 3 stage auger itself, great feature, the machine draws snow much better than a traditional cheap dollar snowblower. The LED lights on the unit are great, you get a great spread of light and its bright. The material the unit will throw. if you have deep light powdery snow, it just fun to use. The blower cuts through that stuff like it isnt even there and tosses it a like 40 feet. Heavier snow that is slightly wet, it seems to throw just as far, the only issue here is that the traction is so good that you start to push a snow-pack out in front of you and you end up stopping, maybe that is user error but it happens to me sometimes. Heavy wet snow, even with this the blower throws it probably 10 or so feet but it throws. Watery Slushy snow, you will find that it just comes out of the Chute 3 or 4 feet but generally does not just fall out the Chute all over the side of the blower. Deep snow, if it is light powdery snow, i have run several inches over the top of the blower and it will just make itself a tunnel and keep going anything after light and fluffy you slow down more and more and may have to even break up the snow in front if its really bad. All in all, this is a Titan in the walk behind class of blowers. If you have the money to spend...SPEND IT! You won't be disappointed. Just looking at this piece of equipment and the craftsmanship, you can tell it will last a very long time. A+ Cub Cadet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This was the best purchase that I have made ever. I love my Cub 30 3 stage here in Colorado. DO NOT hesitate to get this blower. Thank your team for building such a fine product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a work horse in the snow I have only had snowblower for a few months but I've used it twice once in a 20inch snow storm and the other in a 6inch snow storm. Performance was great or just wants more snow. The only thing I would suggest cub cadet make sure customers purchase plenty of shear pins at the time on purchasing snowblower. Heavy snow will cause them to break it seems every use. But great snowblower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow Blowing along the North Coast I bought this snow blower to replace my 20 yr. old garden tractor that was relegated to snow duty that had an engine that gave up the ghost and repair parts were unattainable. The snow blower was delivered by the Cub Cadet dealer ready to go and had even installed the purchased option of the Deluxe Universal Snow Blower Cab. There is something to be said for finding a good dealer. About the snow blower. Living near a Great Lake, snow amounts vary from year to year due to the “lake effect” – how much water is picked over the lake by a storm then dumps as snow when it hits landfall. This year I used this snow blower three times. The largest being about 12” deep but since my drive way is about 100 yards long, drifts can range up to 18-24” in height and the large apron close to the garage and pole barn can have drifts just as large. This machine started up on the first or second easy pull (didn’t need to use the electric start) and cut through the snow like butter. All the controls were laid out very well, were easy to use, and while I did not use the heated handlebars much they were a nice option in one case were the temperature was in single digits before Wind-chill. The LED lighting on the top front of the chute illuminated everything well but if you get the snow cab the LEDs on the handle are hindered by it. The plastic skids glide better than the metal skids of my old garden tractor snow blower attachment and don’t get eaten away by rust. I purchased the 30” 3x Trac model because in the past snow would melt and refreeze then more snow would fall so there would be an under layer of ice where I had to have snow chains on my old tractor. The tracks handled this very well but at a slight cost of maneuverability. While turning the Cub was simple using the steering levers and pulling up a little bit on the handlebars, it still took some effort to do a 180 turn especially on the driveway apron at a lower gear. Running up and down the driveway was a breeze but clearing the large area of the garage apron was “difficult” if not “maddening”. To clear the large garage apron area there were two choices – go back and forth (turning 180 degrees at each run) which required some effort even with the steering levers or attempt to use reverse which would take all day. While I realize the backup gears are (much) slower for safety reasons, reverse gear #1 is all but useless and #2 is so frustratingly slow that I gave up on using it and did the back and forth 180 degree turn option to clear the large apron area. That’s the one thing I would change on the Trac model would be to add a reverse #3 gear or make reverse #2 a little faster (please!). The Deluxe Universal snow blower cab was a nice option and shielded you from the wind and blowing snow but also tended to act like a sail which caused the side panels to shift back and forth a bit. Additionally, at times, the front panel would fog up and lessen visibility until wiped away. And you will need more room to store the blower because the cab more than doubles the front to back length. None the less it was a good protection against the elements. All in all, the snow blower is exceptional at clearing snow. Though, for my purposes (large apron), a wheeled version might have been better for maneuverability, but I would also hate giving up the traction of the Trac model which could be remedied with a little faster reverse gear. That's the only ding in blowing performance but YMMV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Snowblower I Have Ever Owned! I purchased Cub Cadet 30" 3X track-drive snow blower to replace a 19 year-old 32" track-drive Honda (HS1132). I have lived in the mountains of the western U.S. for most of my life; and currently live at 7,400' on the eastern slope of the Rockies where it is not unusual to get 2-3 feet of snow in a single storm. Needless to say, I have owned more than a dozen snow blowers over the years. Although my older machine had served me well for the past 19 years, it was finally starting to show signs of its age and I had become worried that a mechanical problem would leave me without a snow blower at an inopportune time. After reading reviews of modern snow blowers, I opted for the 30" 3XCub Cadet, and stuck with the track-drive because my nearly 200' driveway has a fairly steep slope near the end. Now that I have had the chance to use the Cub Cadet, I wish I made the switch sooner! Assembly - Assembly is straightforward and took maybe 20 minutes; and only that long because I read the manual carefully and double-checked every connection. Use- The 420cc engine (which started on the first pull) and 3-stage blower of the Cub Cadet seem to throw snow several feet farther than my older snow blower (which was no slouch); and the larger diameter chute of the Cub supports noticeably faster forward speeds. So far, the Cub has started on the first pull every time and I have not felt the need to use the electric starter. Turning the Cub is as simple as grabbing the steering lever on the side to which you want to turn and pulling upward just slightly on the handlebars. Even my wife can easily manage turning the Cub Cadet, something she could not do easily with our old machine. The weight of the Cub Cadet is also well balanced over the tracks so adjusting the height of the front auger requires just a little pressure on the handlebars while moving the lever - another improvement over our old snow blower. The controls are intuitive and nicely arranged on the control panel; and the chute controls work like a charm - it only takes a couple of easy cranks to swivel the chute 180 degrees horizontally, and the vertical adjustment is smooth and stays where you put it. I also like the hard plastic skid shoes which glide much better than metal skids over a cold driveway covered with cold, dry snow. The other nice touches are the heated handlebars and the LED lighting: I no longer need to stick heat packs in my gloves; and the LED lights illuminate my entire driveway! Bottom Line - This is a great snow blower! So far it has started easily and handled everything with ease without the need to "manhandle" it like I had gotten used to with my older machine. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performed well after 1st 7" snowfall I brought this unit home one day before our first snow, which was a 6-7" one that was wet (tree limbs bent down). The 3x 30 Trac started up flawlessly and had no problems at all removing the heavy snow. The real test was the pile at the end of the drive the plows left. It was very wet and about 14" deep. Blew right through it. The 3 stage does seem to work as advertised. Also, the tank treads just drove through that mess with no issues. The throwing distance wasn't bad, and considering it was a wet snow, did pretty good. The power steering worked very well and is a necessity with tank treads. I only had 2 items I could snipe about. 1. The hand heaters, for an outside machine, were not that hot. My truck steering wheel gets warmer. It would be nice if those went up a notch or two hotter. However, they did heat up and they will be appreciated in the sub zero sessions. 2. The chute pitch adjust to raise and lower the chute exit would not go to the highest setting. I may have to fiddle with the tension on the flange nut there so it will be loose enough to adjust the full range but not so loose it flops around. In summary, I am very happy with it after one medium grade test. I think this will perform well for many years.
