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

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.
