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

Maybe I'm The Unlucky One?
Terrible experience. Other than setting it up which was a breeze, it's been a nightmare ever since. It's snowed 3 x's since I bought it, and haven't been able to use it once. I spent over $500 and got a Lemon! It won't start by manual pull or Electric start!!! I'm a pretty hands on guy, so I'm extra frustrated because I can't figure it out. I obviously put gas in it, etc. Not to mention, after pulling on the cord a couple of times to get it to start that way, the cord literally cut... more

Snow Blower
This week and last week we had snow storms. It looks like it works, but for large mounds of snow it won't throw. For the most part it does the job. I bought it for my husband about 2 years ago, finally is using it today and last week. I wish I would have bought a two stage blower.

Cub Cadet Good Value
Moves snow like a charm. Excellent price. Electric start is great. On the downside, noisy and a lot of vibration. But when moving snow in Western New York, that is a minor inconvenience.

Snow Plow Mike
I bought a 221hp last winter just before we had several wet snow falls. I have a smaller Toro 79cc that would not throw the wet snow, and a two-stage Cub Cadet that was struggling to throw the snow.

The 221hp had no problem moving 4 and 5 inches of wet snow, I witnessed many other people having a tough time with their snow blowers during these snow falls. I was truly amazed at how well this snow blower worked compared to many, and I do mean many, other ones.

My wife was also impressed... more

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

Cub Cadet 21" Snow Blower
I have only used it once and I was very impressed on power and the snow throwing range. Would have been great if there was a control on handle bars for rotating chute but the chute is manageable. At first when I opened the box after receiving the snow blower I found a big piece of broken plastic chip. I thought it was from the snow blower but I couldn't find anything that it came off of. Proceeded to install oil after installing the chute and choked the engine and it started the first pull.... more

Works Like A Charm!
It started with the first touch of the button. I used to have an equivalent Toro thrower. I didn't miss not having to mix oil and gas one bit with the cub. A minor negative is the lack of chute control at the handle. Otherwise five star satisfied.

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
