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: Hello, do you think the 277cc engine is large enough to be on the 28'' Cub Cadet 2 stage snow blower?
Thanks

by Tony from Pennsylvania on November 16, 2011

A: Yes, this should provide more than enough power, this is going to be around 8-9HP and this should be more than enough power for a 28" snow blower.

Better Late Than Never
This snow blower from Cub Cadet is a beast. Was able to power through snow left by the city snow plows that are near the sidewalk curbs. We are talking almost 28" of snow out from the curb and close to 10 inches of snow high.

Did a quick test run and definitely would recommend it but make sure your garage has space because it is definitely wide.

ABF Freight Shipping experience was excellent. Driver took the snow blower off the truck with a pallet jack and just set it anywhere I... more

Overall Very Pleased With This Purchase
Had been debating getting a snow blower for several years now...due to a recent auto accident back injury I figured now was the time. I saw this unit on special back in November '13. Was debating between the CC 528SWE and 524SWE, decided to go with the more powerful machine instead of maneuverability advantage with the 24".

Purchased the 528SWE and had some issues with the first snowstorm (mainly getting used to the unit itself). I've learned two things with this snow blower: Do not run... more

Buy It..it Works!!..no Bull...
I have 4 of these at my nursing home in north Iowa...they really perform....as maintenance manager....I see it...they start well...steer easy...and chewed up the snow...

Slushy or powder....these work...the heated grips do get warm...so wear gloves...there are other good units out there...but think long term reliability..service..and ....when you need it...this unit will preform... every time...

So if you are commenting from Kauai....give us a break...we love Hawaii....but we know... more
Pros: Durable, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality
Cons: Expensive, Still have trouble with chute movement

Great Snow Mover
Nice snowblower, easy to set up and easy to use. I wish motor was a bit more powerful to throw snow further, but starts up every time with out any issues. Recommend for long driveways and incline driveways, easy to steer with auto steer!

Top Performer-528
Highly recommend this model for Northeast Snow conditions especially this past year.
Steering is awesome and takes a little getting used to (my pervious snowblower never had this feature).
The best feature is the joystick snow throw control which works well and also gets a little getting used when you never had this option in the past. Starts up real easy, gear change is fast.
I am pleased with my purchase at this time.
I received my item fast and packaged well with no issues by the shipper... more

Cub Cadet 28 Inch
Wow what a nice machine. Very easy to manuver around with the zero turn. The assembly was nothing to do when it arrived.
Overall a real nice machine with plenty of power to move the snow. Shipping was fast. Yes I would recommend this to anyone looking to get one for a 2-3 car drive way.

No More Cold Hands
I installed the heated hand grips the day after I received them.
Installation was very easy, took about an hour.
The recent snow storm, the 26th of Dec., gave me the opportunity to check them out.
The grips heated very rapidly and wearing light gloves my hands stayed very warm.
In the past, my hands always got very cold even with two pairs of gloves.
Excellent product.

Lots Of Snow
This Cub Cadet is an awesome piece of machinery, the ability to turn is great even I can use it as well as my husband. It runs quietly, smooth, and can throw snow quite the distance. We have a large driveway and clears it with no problem. My husband has arthritis in his knees, and says its not work at all compared to the old machine. Love the Cadet. And the price for value.

Update After 1/26/2015 - 1/27/20115 Blizzard Storm
Had a weird issue with leaking fuel but it turned out after I took things apart was that the carburetor choke flap door was setup differently then the Ariens. I now have to remember to close the choke completely and then turn off the snow blower.

Just an FYI for some users of this snow blower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

Very Nice Machine
The only thing I thought was a little difficult was the joy stick for auger other than that ate a Michigan snow storm snow 14" with no problem. No bog what so ever, only used once so still yet to be determined, very happy so far.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: I Do Not Like Joy Stick For Chute Control Other Than That Awsome
