Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed - extremely bad product I bought the 3x 357cc Cub Cadet snowblower at the end of winter Feb 2019, we did not use it until this winter, we used it 3 times, now every time we pull the cord to start it, sparks and and a blue flame comes out the exhaust and you hear very loud explosion sound, similar to a gunshot. Also, the hand heated handles never worked properly. We are afraid to use the snowblower again and we like this was a waste of a lot of money for our family for this purchase. Cub Cadet, what can you do to compensate us for the really bad experience and the inconvenience of not having a working snowblower this winter?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not as good as expected i bought a 3 stage 26" last Oct and told my neighbours how great it was. I have gone threw 4 shear pins , over the last 16 years I never had to replace a pin. The blower is greed for 10" of snow but not worth a darn in snow over 18" it just stops moving snow. I gave my old to my next door neighbour and my old blower does a better job. It seems like a very expensive shovel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Club Cadet X3 26" Love this Machine!! All the neighbours like it too! Did 4 driveways (after a nasty storm) in record time! Even dispensed with the snow ploughed drifts that boxed people in. The 3-auger system dealt with the hardened snow pack drifts easily. Luv my new "TOY"! H.O.B. 1st Esq

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed I have this unit 4 years now. When I first purchased it I thought there maybe something wrong with the throwing distance. I had a service call for an adjustment to the drive cable and I asked the technician if the throwing distance seemed correct to him. He tried it and said yes that's all you can expect this machine to do. It was about 15 feet! My driveway is 23 feet wide and I am limited for space on one side, this unit does not meet my needs. I wish it threw the distance I need because I love the heated grips and the power steering. Incidentally I paid way too much for this "high end" MTD unit when I could have purchased another unit from the same manufacturer for about $600.00 less.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great blower but handles too low I bought this unit which. Is very good at cutting through the thick snow and throwing it a good distance it’s a solid machine well-made the biggest and only problem I have with it is the handles are too low and cannot be adjusted any higher unfortunately I will have to get rid of this machine. It is lower than most other blowers I have seen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Over rated I have had this machine 3 winters now . I bought it because I live on a main road and I get tired of the plows constantly filling my driveway back in after I clear it out.. The old 10 horse would struggle with the wet heavy stuff at the end of the drive so I bought this 3 stage .At first I was quite impressed. But it seems to loose power over time . It eats shear pins like crazy I spend half my life changing them in the cold and its not like im hitting any thing or objects lodged in the snow .. I have to keep a few packages of them on hand all the time .. Frankly I am sorry I ever bought this . It gets used maybe 3 or 4 times a year. For about an hour each use . all the paint is coming off inside the auger area and is rusting pretty bad. The only good thing I can say is the engine always seems to start real easy . when I first got it it would throw snow over a 6 foot fence with ease .I had to be careful I didn't break my neighbors windows . now it can hardly get the snow over the fence . paid a lot for this blower and for the money its just not any better then my old craftsman. . the tire literally came off the rim last year but they covered it under warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance: constant clogging Purchased this snowblower this fall and in the two times ives used it, I've spent more time cleaning it thank actually throwing snow. When it does work, it doesn't throw the snow far enough, it just spews from the chute. If its really light fluffy snow, you might be fine. Good luck when you reach the end of your driveway. For the price, I expect better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall - Very Satisfied I have had this snow blower for 2 seasons and it performs quite well. Given the snow we get in Ottawa it can handle the volume usually with little effort. It also works well at the end of the driveway when the snow plow leaves it's usual mountain to deal with. I have found the only issue is with very wet/heavy snow. It tends to get clogged/bogged down. That is when I wish it had a bit more power to deal with the heavier slushy snow..
