Cub Cadet's 3528SWE had added an additional feature that is changing the snow clearing game. They have added a patented “3rd” stage auger to its 2-stage housing allowing this blower to handle 50% more snow than a traditional two stage snow blower making it great for most property owners alike.

Equipped with a powerful 357cc Cub Cadet OHV engine, the 3528SWE has more than enough torque to handle the heaviest of snow fall. Stocked with a standard electric start, all you do is press a button... more

Cub Cadet Snowblower 3 Stage 28"
I purchased this snowblower based on reviews. We get plowed in during storms, so i am hoping the 3 stage feature will help us cut through the snow mounds more quickly.

I especially like the light and easy turn features. My original 2 stage blower fro MTD was 17 years old, and was not able to drive through the snow as easily as it used to.

I will post future reviews after i use this cub cadet on the first storm, here in the North East US.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

"I ordered this through Snowblowersdirect.com Ordering online was very easy. I did choose the lift gate delivery service, and it was worth it. The first delivery was damaged, but the driver was very nice and loaded it right back up. I called customer service and the snowblowersdirect.com customer service person was very understanding. She even placed a replacement order while waiting on confirmation that the damaged item was returned. All in all, i got a new snowblower in just under another 8 days."

Not happy with 3x Cub Cadet. Second time used spring to the auger cable broke and piece of plastic the holds the auger handle down broke. Also buy a bunch of shear pins it goes thru them like butter.

My nearest dealer is 50 miles away had to get local shop to fix problems cost me $75.00 dollars after spending $1300.00 for the snow blower. Auger sound like it ready to go or shaft is bent sounds like a coffee grinder.

This Snow Blower Is A Beast! Only Had One Rock Shut Me Down.
I have owned this for two winters now and just experienced my first breakdown. After about an hour of operation in wet heavy snow, the snowblower stopped blowing snow all of a sudden. I took it in my heated garage and let the snow melt off. I thought for sure that something mechanical happened and verified the 3 year warranty and 5 year on the gear box. I even left a message for our Cub Cadet dealer to call me back in the morning.

Anyway, I went back out in the garage and found a large rock... more

Great Snowblower
Moved 18" of snow at ease,also three ft. at the end of the drive left by the county plow. I also did my neighbor's gravel driveway. I lifted the skid plates and no broken pins.

I had a Snapper for 15 years I sold it and brought the Cub Cadet. I love it. It has great features. Power steering, powerful engine, hand warmer and etc. The best out there for me!

Haven't Fired It Up Yet
Purchased this snowblower in late September in anticipation of a harsh 2016/2017 winter in Maryland. I have a long driveway with a steep incline and didn't want to be shoveling this year.

I unboxed and assembled the unit over a month ago, but haven't fired it up yet. Will do so when our first snow storm is imminent and post a useful review.

I Like It
This snow blower arrived 1 day before we got 18 inches of snow. Set up would have been a lot easier with better instructions. Starts right up and cut through everything.

The chute direction control is glitchy but I got better at it by the time I was finishing up. It was expensive so I'll know the real value of it if it lasts a long time and doesn't break down too often
Pros: Features, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Bad Instructions

Great Snow Blower
I live in Maine and we had our first real snow of the year. This snow blower is fantastic. The snow plow ridge is no longer a challenge. The best part is this snow blower has so much power all my snow is now on my neighbor's yard.

The only issue I have is the shifting is harder than it should be. Shifting into reverse is difficult and reverse 2 is almost impossible. I tried to adjust the cable, but it still is difficult. The shifter itself is metal, but the notches the shifter rides... more

Very Powerful Machine
A very powerful snow thrower. Cn throw from the left edge clear over to the right side of the drive way. For doing the basics it is excellent.

With the power steering control and the controls on the spout it is hard to get used to and control. Part of the problem is that the low forward speed is too slow and the faster gears are too fast. Also controlling the steering with the same hand you are using to control the wheels or the augur screw is tricky. In time I'm sure I will learn to... more

The Best Snow Blower I've Ever Owned
I own a 9 hp Yardman that I had for 19 years,works great,but decided to get a new one.This Cub Cadet has all the features of the old one and more.I was impressed with how fast this thing works,and how far the snow blows.

It blew right though the bank that the plow left.My neighbor started blowing about 30 min. before me.I finished before he did.I am very happy with this machine,and would recommend it to anybody who asked.Plenty of power easy to operate.Plan on using it for 19 more years.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy,but well balanced, expensive,but worth it

Amazing Snowblower!
Overall this is a awesome blower! Waiting for a serious dump to put it through the final testing. Might consider the track instead of wheels next time. Wish I had a little more power, not much -just a little boost for heavy wet snow.

The chute that throws the snow is difficult to adjust sometimes. Maybe a high performance carburetor or air intake just for the real heavy drifts.

A faster reverse would be my first alteration for those who care in R & D .
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Needs more Horsepower and a faster reverse.
