  5 Questions
Q: Would you recommend tire chains or weights to improve traction? The tires have an aggressive tread but just spin on ice and slush, but I don't want to tear up my blacktop driveway. It's a Cub Cadet 524SWE. Thanks.
by Bob Reed from New Jersey on February 15, 2014

A: Bob - tire chains are not normally recommended for use with the X-Trac tires that come standard on a Cub Cadet 524SWE. With that said, if you did want to try some chains to improve your traction, these would be the chains we sell that would fit the tires on the 524SWE: tire chains Need to let you know that installing these on X-Trac tires may be a little bit of a challenge.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Cub Cadet (24") 208cc Two Stage Snow Blower w/ Power Steering DOES THIS MODLE HAVE MORE THAN 1 FORWARD GEAR OR REVERSE?
by JEFF from Michigan on November 21, 2013

A: Jeff - the Cub Cadet 524SWE has 6 forward and 2 reverse speed settings.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: When you get it delivered is their a lot of assembly required?
by Kurt Pappalardo from Massachusetts on August 10, 2012

A: Kurt - assembly is pretty minimal. You will need to fold up the handle assembly and tighten it into place. You will need to attach the discharge chute and connect the chute rotation rod to the dash. Add oil and fill it up with gas. That's pretty much the extent of the assembly on this model.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Do you have chains for the back tires?
by Edwatrd Duszak from Delaware on October 24, 2011

A: Edward - the Cub Cadet 524WE has 15" x 5" tires. The Toro snow blower tire chains should fit, since the Toro's and the Cub 524WE use the same tire: tire chains
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Hi Kriss:

What is the difference between a Cub Cadet 524 WE and SWE?

by Oney Smith from Maryland on September 24, 2011

A: Oney - The Cub Cadet 524SWE has an "assisted steering" (power steering) system. The Cub Cadet 524WE does not.

My son bought me a Cub Cadet 2X (24") 208cc Two-Stage Snow Blower from Costcos in November 2015 as a Christmas gift. I put it in the shed until January 21st. Big snow coming! I pulled it out and realized the bolt on the auger handle had broken off. This was a factory issue because the unit came assembled.

Returned it to Costco for full refund because they didn't have any more in stock. I had to buy it from another dealer for an extra 100.00. (Not happy about that) Two authorized... more

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

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

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

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

Robert, the Snow Blower Expert
Product Expert
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.

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.

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

Sad But True
We had purchased one of these models 3 years ago with perfect timing as there was a very heavy snowfall that year and we absolutely loved it. I have been married 25 years, my wife said then that she liked her new snow blower better than any ring or gift I could have bought!

Her mother is elderly but still in her own home and my wife loved how she could simply drive the Cub Cadet up our quad ramps into the pickup, use the nice slow reverse to back it down again, and clear her Mom's sidewalks... more

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
