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

‘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.

Snow Blower, Unassembled, Is In The Garage — Instruction Manual Is Confused (Prior To Even Becoming Confusing).

It is in very good good company.



Well, it proved to be less daunting than we had feared — i.e., that of unloading it out of the Nissan Quest and getting it into the garage. It was a multistep operation. We first slid it off the Quest onto a bank in the yard and then moved it across the driveway into the garage. Having two strong daughters helped. Couldn’t have done it without them.

Still needs to be assembled.

That the Instruction Manual gets its languages mixed up, mid-stream, definitely does NOT help. This is from the English printed manual that came with the blower


So, I went online. Yes, the parts are in English BUT look at the TITLE.

And this is ‘Cub Cadet‘ — Premium Branding. I don’t think so!
