Superior Quality that Handles Winter’s Worst

When you have 3X strength, nothing is in your way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good The machine throws snow a mile. However, the snow chute elevation cables freeze after each use. If it gets warm enough you can thaw them out or just put a heater indet the controls for a while. I've had them replaced with no help. Other than that I can't find anything else bad about the snowblower. Starts great and the 3rd stage just eats through plow piles. It makes me sad that winter will be over in a month and I'll have to put it away for the summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 12 inch 3 stage plugs up frequently The 12 auger and 3 stage plugs up in wet snow and mostly pushes it around. Not as good as 13 inch auger 2 stage. I would not but it again. And the chute also plugs up, to narrow. The reverse seems very slow. Has good features like lock auger handle. Definitely has lots of power to move snow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work in slush or heavy snow This snow blower craps the bed every time it sees slush.Unless it is light fluffy snow this 14 hp snow blower is useless.It sucks that every time I have heavy wet snow, which in New York is more the rule than the exception I have to get my neighbor to run through my driveway with his plow. My neighbor next door with a competitors snowblower eats it up and spits it out no problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constant breakdown I bought this for this winter of 2018 2019. And the first time I used it all the shear pins on augers sheared. Plus the belt broke. Does not want to work in wet snow as you claim. Not happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower I am not sure why the negative reviewers, lucky for me I put more stock in Consumer Reports than these. I am extremely happy with my purchase I have now blown 4’ of snow in two storms all wet and heavy and am happy to report it does an excellent job. No broken pins no burnt belts it is well made and sturdy. The only conclusion I can come to is that there are folks that are poor operators when it comes to machines. The Operator may be more of a problem than the machine, a little common sense and this bad boy will do all you need to do it chews through the pile at the end of the driveway and throws the snow plenty far away. If you are looking for a great machine at a mid price range this is a good one, but just because it has 6 gears doesn’t mean you should be trying to blow snow in 6th gear. All in all I am extremely happy with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk Have been replacing shear pins like crazy, i snow blow six driveways with this unit and on last snow fall i counted eleven shear pins replaced, i spend more time replacing pins than blowing snow. Last three seasons i've replaced auger shaft,auger cable, forward motion cable and now the weld on the whole drum chute are breaking leaving me having to replace it Augh!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chute plugs constantly This is the second full winter I have had this machine and the chute plugs constantly even in fluffy snow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features held back by shear pins Great startup, design, features, but there are a few issues. I sheared 2 shear pins the first time I used it in a light 6" snow. The speeds are also too fast. Why have 6 speeds and can only really use 1 and 2? And reverse has 2 speeds and both are too slow!? The middle gearbox on the augers is leaking from one of the auger shafts. I hoped and expected more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted Was looking at a smaller model but when I showed a photo of last years drifts the salesman explained some of the potential struggles I would have. Went with this model and WOW! This takes out the drifts with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT A BEAST !!! Goes thru snow like it is butter,3 ft of snow at end of driveway from county plow,never slowed this blower at all.do not know why anyone would have a problem with this snowblower,sometimes it is the operator not the product,my last snowblower was 31 years old never replaced 1 sheer pin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a beast I bought this 10/01/16 and have removed light and heavy snows. It does a tremendous job of throwing the snow far enough away so I can clear a large parking area without re-throwing the same snow over again. The third stage really helps move a lot more snow at faster rates so I can get out of the cold and wind. So far I haven't even had to use the electric start, choke it, prime it, and pull 2 to 3 times and starts. I highly recommend this snow blower, you will be amazed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cant handle heavier snow and clogs up all the time I had to go back to using my old 18 year 2 stage cub cadet as the 3 stage just can’t handle any snow and if it’s heavy at all it clogs up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flawed design, cheap materials This machine was poorly designed, it clogs up far too easily, breaks pins frequently for no good reason, the cheaply made plastic parts wear extremely prematurely. My 26 year old Sears 10/30 will blow circles around this new machine and stills starts with one pull. Cub cadet should exchange these for something much, much better thought out. This machine is 1 winter old and I just advertised it for sale for 50% of the original purchase price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive disappointment A perennial failure that lasted 4 years and finally gave out. It required constant maintenance in order to engage the auger and keep the clutch from burning and incredibly frustrating was the fact that the discharge chute was constantly clogged. I had to keep a 12" screwdriver with me at all times and stop and start the machine incessantly. With a fresh oil change and the first snow of the season, the engine seized. What a piece of crap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the performance I was expecting from a Cub Another winter begins and our first heavy snow. I was really going this year the machine would perform better since we didn't get much snow last year to really see what it could do. But one thing is consistent - this machine does not like heavier/wet snow. Bogs down, clogs up, and just doesn't eat through the snow as I expected. We also have a small 20" Torro and that thing will throw wet snow better than this 3X Cub. Very disappointed in the 3X performance. Perhaps too many moving pieces with three stages? IDK. It does OK in light fluffy snow so I gave it an extra star. Otherwise I would have rated this at one star. Cub Cadet needs to send this one back to the drawing board. Gimme one that handles all types of snow. The hand warmers are nice and the lights work well....but I bought it to THROW SNOW! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed, Dud not a pwerhouse Before the snow fell I thought I would upgrade. Very disappointed. Seems like at full throttle it is only running low rpm’s. It does not throw snow as advertised. Constantly stopping to clean out the chute.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Premature wear on control lever detents (plastic) The forward/reverse control detent/lock that holds the lever in R2 is wearing out after approximately 12 uses. R1 is so slow it is useless. Will need replacement before another season. Throw angle control cables retain moisture and freeze. Aside from these issues, the machine works very well on deep snow; plenty of power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable Just over a year and it’s been used maybe 5 times. Second year it won’t start. No old gas was left in the carbs yet it seems like it’s my fault. Actually it is, I bought a cub cadet
