  3 Questions
Q: Heated hand grips are listed under options. Does this mean that they come standard on this model or is it an extra cost option?
by Mark Z. from New York on August 03, 2015

A: Correct. This unit would come standard with the heated hand grips.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Could you provide me with the over all lenght of this unit once assembled? Do you know the height of the handle?
by Mike Fieweger from Wisconsin on November 15, 2014

A: Mike - a Cub Cadet 3524SWE is 48" in length when assembled, and the hand grips are 34" above the ground
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: I'm interested in the Cub Cadet 3524SWE, but specs say "Assembly Required." Can you giv eme an idea of how much assembly is required? And can it be done by a novice, or will I need a professional's help? One last: is Lift Gate Service available in zip code 13501? Thanks for your help: anticipate ordering for the upcoming 2014-2015 season
by Anthony R. from New York on August 18, 2014

A: When it comes to all snow blowers, they are going to be in a box or crate and due to shipping, they need to be disassembled to some point. In terms of this unit and most others, the assembly is going to consist of bringing the handle bars into their upright position, attach the chute and bring the chute rod to the dash from the chute.

This is very minor assembly and a "Novice" should not have a problem when following directions.

Lift gate would be available for your zip code.

Cub Cadet 3x (24') 277 Cc Test
I got the opportunity to use the newly acquired unit yesterday removing a 7' shush.Using a shute lubricant the unit performed way beyong expectation on a very wet , heavy mixture. The 3-stage configuration makes the difference! The 277 cc engine also contributed to the success.

Should Have Read The Other Reviews
Bought this machine in Oct of 2015. Used it today (1/23/16) for the first snow of 2015/16. Went through 7 shear pins in approximately 2.5 hours of use.

Looked on-line for issues and found many other people with the same complaint. Calling the dealer for return policy on Monday. Going back to Ariens machines.

Update Review!
Well, back in October when I first purchased this snowblower, I reviewed it and gave it 5 Stars on overall quality and features. Today my update review is focused on its overall performance, we just had a major storm here in the NE which dropped a whopping 32 inches of snow on my driveway! Needless to say it was prime time to put my 24" 3-stage Cub Cadet to the test and see if it could get me out of this bind that Mother Nature had just put me through!

Bottom Line: My realistic... more

Impressed
I'm impressed with the ease that it went threw that hard snow that the snow plows let along the street.

Also used it in a wet snow and impressed with how far it threw it. Very happy with my purchase.

Disappointed
I bought this snowblower to handle the recent snowmageddon. However, after 15 minutes of blowing powdery snow, I broke 2 shear pins. It takes a couple of hours to do my driveway, at over a dollar a pin, I'll have over $10.00 in shear pins. Plus the 3 stage does not cut into the snow as good as a 2 stage. Moreover the product is cheaply made.
Pros: Features
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Difficult To Use, Expensive

Quality Snowblower From Cub Cadet!
Haven't had any snow here in the NE yet, so can't really say much about its performance! I did put it together which was easy enough, put some oil in it and started it (both manually and with the starter) with no problems at all! It is a high quality snowblower and I'm really looking forward to see how it performs once we get a significant snowfall!

The heated handles, steering assist, and one-hand chute operation are really nice features that work really well! So, on overall appearance,... more

Best Snow Blower Ever
I live in New York. We had major snow storms this week. This blower worked like a champ.

I did 6 houses on my block, ran the machine for 7 hours straight, and never had to clean the chute of ice.

I recommend this machine to any homeowner.

So Far, So Great
I'm just a homeowner. Never had a snowblower before, just kids, who are now in college, leaving me to shovel mounds of Colorado snow.

Shelled out big bucks for this beast, but I must say it's a wonder to behold. Almost too much machine, but when it's snowing horizontally, you can't have too much, right?

Sadly, it was a little more brain damage than I bargained for to get it assembled and running. The user's manuals are cryptic and I guess I'd hoped for a little more hand-holding from Snow... more

So So At Best....
I recently purchased the Cub Cadet 3X, 24", 277cc model and I am not impressed. The machine barely handled 3" of wet snow. The joystick shoot controls are awkward, all plastic and not the best design. If it's light fluffy snow you might be ok with this machine, but hard to recommend.

Keith,
You may want to contact Cub Cadet about this at (877) 428-2349. A lot of people we've heard from say this model works great for piles at the end of the driveway and for breaking up deep, frozen snow.

Find out from Cub Cadet if there's anything they can do while it's still warrantied.

Go Big Yellow!
This Cub Cadet snow blower is my first ever... up to this point I've used the scoop & a lot of elbow grease. Here's my feedback so far:

1) Shipping was very fast & professional (Brown Transport - Scottsbluff, Nebraska) given the wintry/snow covered roads in our part of the world. Shipping crate had a few minor dings on it, but machine was well protected on the inside with no visual signs of damage anywhere.

2) Assembly was quick & easy thanks to some well illustrated... more
