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

Would Be A Good Machine If It Would Start
I have a new Club Cadet 2-stage blower and I have to say I'm not thrilled with it.

The main thing is that it is not starting up now. It turns over but won't start up. It's barely a month and a half old now at most, I think. What can I say?

I don't like the chute either, it gets stuck at each end of the swing and takes two hand to get it to move back in the opposite direction.

The rest seems good, except for the choke controls, which also get stuck.
Cons: Unreliable

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

Product Back Ordered But Still Came Early
Winters are unpredictable in the Ozarks so this year decided to get a snow thrower. I researched on line and found the Cub Cadet with features I needed and at a reasonable price. I ordered the product and saw it was back ordered but decided to take the chance it would come before a big snow. I was surprised when it came 2 weeks before promised. The delivery was great they put it in my garage. It took about 30 minutes or so to put it together and get started. The oil level in motor was full only... more

Waiting
Took 5 days shipping not the 3 days stated it would take. That being said it came very well packaged,easy to put together. Checked oil, started right up. Took it for a test drive and I really like the easy steering. Looks so good mother nature is afraid to make it snow so I can't test it. I am very happy with the unit, the online staff did a great job helping me buy it. The free shipping made it even a better deal yet.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Shipping Took 5 Days Not 3

Finally Had Snow
After purchasing the 524SWE at the end of the season in 2013 I didn't get a chance to use the snow blower except to verify it started. I started the snow blower in November and again this past weekend to ensure all was set before a storm. Finally this week we received just short of a foot of snow from a blizzard. Went out to the garage, primed the snow blower and with the electric start it started immediately. The blower worked great throughout my driveway and sidewalk. Being my first snow... more

It's A Beast!
Product arrived in perfect condition and after installing the chute, some gas and the handlebars, I plugged it in and pushed the button and two seconds later it fired up. Now I'm just waiting for a snowstorm.

Great Buying Experience....
Lots of extra features I didn't expect that will make my snow blowing experience a lot more pleasant. I bought the snow blower on sale at a great price, I would suggest this snow blower to anyone looking for a snow blower. I wish that I could've afforded the hand grip warmer that would've been nice to have. Snow Blowers Direct is a great company, they made purchasing my snow blower very easy. I called several times with questions everyone was very courteous and helpful. Shipping was fast and on... more

Best Snow Blower Ever Owned
I have owned two snow blowers previously and this one surpasses the strength, durability of the previous two. It has not snowed as of yet but I am praying to the snow gods so I can put this to the test. It started on the first pull and I am most impressed with Snow Blowers Direct. This machine got delivered when told, the price you can't beat, and the free shipping is amazing for such a large product.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Durable, Fast
