Finally Have Snow Blower Now Waiting For That 1st Snow Fall
After much searching and comparing I finally pulled the trigger and ordered my Cub Cadet with power steering from PED. The snow blower arrived as stated when ordered, delivered with no issues to my garage. The hardest part was removing the shipping crate, man do they build a cone of protection around this equipment. Once I had the crate removed the setup of the snow blower was quick and easy.

The first push or the electric start button and she came to life. After an hour or so of... more

524swe Will Not Start
I used this snow blower for two years with no problems. The 3rd year it will NOT start. I pulled the spark plug and there is oil on the plug. Seriously, after two years the engine needs work. This was my first Cub Cadet and my last!
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive

Mike,
We do apologize for the bad experience you have had with your Cub Cadet snow blower. In a situation like, we would suggest taking the unit into a local Cub Cadet servicing dealer to have it fixed. This sounds very much like an issue with the gasket cover in the engine. Your unit did come with a 3-year warranty and from the sounds of it, you should still be within that warranty so the fix should be covered. If you need any assistance in finding a local Cub Cadet servicing dealer in your area, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Greatly Disapoionted
I bit the bullet this year and bought a new snow Cub Cadet, I had an Ariens that I had for 11 years. it did a great job but was getting old and was always needing repair. I bought the new Cub Cadet 208 CC I did a lot (1 1/2 years ) of research and review reading. I settled on the Cub Cadet. I live in Revere MA today is the big day of the blizzard of 2015 and my brand new snow blower won't start.

I used a brand new gas can, brand new gas the recommended (5w-30) oil kept it covered from the... more

Nice Machine For A First-timer
I have used snow blowers a few times, but this is my first time owning and maintaining one.

I'm happy with the size. This unit is on the small side, but I find that the maneuverability and ease of handling makes up for the few times when it might take one extra pass to clear a wide-open area.

It comes with two sets of instructions - one for the blower, and one for the engine - with neither of them really being very user-friendly. Assembly wasn't too hard, but you need to take time and... more
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Easy Start, Compact
Cons: Bad Instructions

Changing The Oil
I bought my cadet last year (just-in-time) and changed the oil at the end of the season. The oil release spigot is too short and does not clear the frame, so oil dripped down the frame and it was too close to the body to place a pan under it.

Consequently I spent more time cleaning up the oil than actually draining it. I suggest extending the pipe as I did and make it simpler and cleaner.

Poor Shipping
Took over a week to deliver ! The freight company promised delivery ..called at 5 pm they said he was busy but on his way ...called at 7 they said he would call me ... Finally I called at 9 pm and he said he broke down, had no lights and he was heading back to Romulus .. So I ask how he was driving with no lights and had another excuse .. Got it delivered the next day ..freight company is a nite mare .. I'll forgive them cause it was free delivery.
Pros: High Quality, Features, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

524swe Is The Way To Go
Snowblowersdirect is the way to go hands down. Customer Service is great, and shipping times are very reasonable. So far I am very happy with my 524SWE. From unloading off the tractor trailer, assembly and testing out in my driveway was under 30 minutes. Power steering feature works great I tested it out on my asphalt driveway, wet grass, and loose gravel, it performed great on all three surfaces. Definitely a back saver with out a doubt. Added a little bit of gas, checked the oil and the... more

Good Snowblower For The Price
I have used this snowblower in 8" very hard packed along with deep wet and dry snow conditions. I am very impressed with the power of this machine.

The engine controls work well and is easy to use, but is a bit tricky to get to at while you are starting and stopping the machine. You have to reach in and around the shoot control cables to adjust the engine speed and the choke.

The head lamp works decently, but the snow discharge shoot is in the way of most of the light being... more
Pros: Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, This Snowblower Has Good Power
