The Cub Cadet 221HP is the premium single-stage snow blower in the Cub Cadet lineup. It has a number of smart innovations built in a compact, easy-to-use machine.

The Cub Cadet 221HP is powered by a Cub Cadet brand overhead valve engine that gives you more power than you'd normally expect from a single-stage snow blower, so you'll be able to clear snow with ease. This model also has an electric start system so you can get your snow blowing done in a minimal amount of time.

Great Little Machine
Easy to assemble, more power than I thought, easy to start, did not even need to use electric start. So glad I opted for the more power over the Toro. Cleared even wet snow with no problem.
Pros: Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

Not Overly Pleased
The chute was difficult to install as the screws that had to be loosened were incredibly tight. Snow blower does not clear down to the pavement. I have read that I need to lower the blade, but temp is below zero right now and I can't work on it. Would have liked it to work well out of the box.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Does Not Clear Down To The Pavement, Noisy

If At First...
Ordered one on Jan 2, it arrived in a few days. But the pongids in shipping customized it by rough handling such that oil filler tube was broken. Spoke with Josh on the 7th of Jan. who advised me to repack and return. Did so (no cost) and let James know it had been returned on the 9th. He found me a replacement and shipped it same day it arrived next day and went together without incident. Started on first pop and seems to be in fine working order. Now if it will just snow so I can test... more

Just In Time For The Winter Storm
Have had two storms so far. Both times this came in very handy. It was a jiffy to clean up the driveway, sidewalk and snow plow. Started on first pull, works fast. Had to push through thicker snow ( 10 inches or more ). Throwing distance good. Most importantly light weight. Material seems cheap, though.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Fast, Easy To Store

Replacing a Cub Cadet I've had for over 10 years (which still works good). Just time for a new machine. I thought the old one was really good..... this one's performance blew me away...... its a "Hoss" Great job.

Good Value And Works Well
First, I bought it because it was about all that was in stock and I am tired of shoveling. I put it right to work. The electric start worked like a charm and it clears well. The small size is a plus. About the only negative is that it is really noisy. The fairly low cost is an additional benefit.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Noisy

Bought It Just In Time
After years of shoveling I decided it was time to get a snow blower. Did some research online and the Cub Cadet caught my attention. Compared prices and Snow Blowers Direct was the same as local stores with no charge shipping. I ordered it on a Tuesday evening. It was delivered Thursday afternoon. And I didn't have to lug it home. Got it just in time for the unusually heavy snow for my area. So far so good. It's better than I expected.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Easy To Store

Delivery Very Slow
My biggest complaint was the delivery via FedEx. Granted there was a weather condition on the first promised date. However, the other four promises were not. FedEx was in my neighborhood on the Saturday before the Tuesday when I finally received the product. The blower was very slow going up my driveway and faster going down it. Not real happy with this blower. My neighbor told me if he had known I was buying a Cub Cadet, he would have told me not to buy it. To many complaints from his... more

Excellent Value
This is by far the best machine I have owned so far. Easy out of box. Easy start and does very well in snow in excess of 12".
I would certainly recommend this to my friends.

Terrific New Snow Blower
We had a 12" snow come in on top of a 10" snow and my 20 year old 18" Snapper decided that it was time to go south. I immediately got on the computer and did the Consumer Report magazine to find what they recommended. Then did internet search for a value and found Snow Blowers Direct. Your price was excellent, and would you believe that your free delivery got the thing here in spite of snow that blanketed the FEDEX route. Got the thing here one day later than the initial... more
