Very first time. I have NEVER used a snowblower before! So, this was all new to me. Plus, of the two REVERSE speeds only ‘R2’ was working. So, had to figure that out.

It was OK. It is a heavy beast. It does move snow and does so fast. I am sure I will like it more when I am more used to it.

I still went back and shoveled by hand! Smile.

Thought this will amuse

Yes, you can buy them, of course, from ‘Cub Cadet‘, BUT they charge nearly $8 for shipping. That is crazy.

Luckily I found these, which is EXACTLY the right Part #, viz., 738-05273, on Amazon. Yes, I ordered them.

My 3-stage requires two different types of Shear Pins. Can’t find the other on Amazon. But, I am going to do my best not to get it from ‘Cub Cadet‘.

BEWARE. BEWARE of Cub Cadet.

‘Home Depot’ Publishes My Critical Review Of ‘Cub Cadet’, 3X 26″ TRAC Snow Blower; ‘Cub Cadet’ Refuses.

It is encouraging that at least ‘Home Depot’ acquiesced to publish my review.

Not impressed at all, at all, with ‘Cub Cadet’. They come across as a corrupt, cowboy outfit. I regret buying this snow blower from them. I was deceived by the reviews.

BEWARE. BEWARE of Cub Cadet.

Assembling ‘Cub Cadet’, 3X (3-Stage), 26″ TRAC Snow Blower — Owner’s Manual Useless, You Are On Your Own.

Nothing about connecting Shift Lever
to Shift Rod!



With no snow expected in the near future, I was going to do the assembly at my leisure, one step at a time.

So, the first step, per the instructions, was to assemble the Handles and the controls on them.

Well, I got it done, but NOT thanks to the to the dumb, garbage Cub Scout instructions.

Once I lifted the handle up and checked that all the cables are wiring were free (and not trapped) I noticed this heavy duty rod just flopping around. Didn’t look right. Knew it had to be attached to something. So, I got a light and started looking around. Noticed that the shift lever had nothing attached to it. So, I literally put two-and-two together. There were two hole options. Not sure which one I should have used.

The instructions also do not tell you which chute type you are contending with. You have to work that out.

And then there is this DIAGRAM (↓). Not impressed.
