What is the difference between a 2 stage & a 3 stage snow blower?

Asked by: 14Earl
A 2 stage snowblower basically picks up the snow entering the mouth of the unit by an auger that runs across the mouth and blows it out a chute.  The 3 stage units do the same but have an additional auger blade facing out that chops up the snow as it enters the unit.  The 3rd stage enables the snowblower to move more snow more quickly but also required more power to do so.

Left lever lock will not release. Brand new unit, not yet started up.

Asked by: Lorneb
If the left lever you are referring too is the far left one, then this controls the auger function.  Follow the cable from the end of the lever.  It runs down to a round slotted guide.  The cable should have some slack (see the user guide for instructions on how to adjust the slack in the cable.  Perhaps the cable is caught on something or the guide needs adjusting, preventing the cable from extending when the lever is released.

What is 'power steering' ? I am wondering if that's the system with a lever below each handle that releases the wheel lock on that side?

Asked by: mikehebert
Thank you for your question. No, the steering trigger controls are located on the underside of the handles of the snow thrower.

Cub Cadet(R) 3-Stage Snow Blower with 357 CC Engine - 26-in is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chute rotation...I modified..read on My 26" Cub Cabet does the job OK, but after only one year the "joystick" that controls the chute direction failed. Symptoms...loss of control of the movement of the chute or snow exit direction. Called Cub Cadet in Canada...useless!!! Solution...warning....you need a few tools and some patience. I found an old dead snow blower with a crank chute control and for five bucks I mounted the crank mechanism onto my new Cub Cadet. A test run says it works a treat. Joy sticks are for video games...not for snow blowers. Just hoping someone @ MTD Cub Cadet is reading/listening. Best...SHUMBA

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sub Par Customer Service I've owned this snowthrower for just over a year. Since then i have had to get it fixed twice costing $600 this winter season. 1. Dirty and rusty float bowl. 2. Replace shear pins twice. 3. Replace auger belt twice. 4. Replace auger cable twice. All these parts are not under warranty. I have a 30 foot paved driveway and used the machine only 3 times this winter. I would never recommend buying a Cub Cadet product. I tried Cub Cadet customer service and warranty department and was basically called a liar and it's the customers fault. Dont waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great after following MTD Instructions I was initially disappointed with this snow blower the first time I tried it. I called the manufacturer (MTD) who listened to my concerns. I had taken video of the unit only throwing about 80% of the snow and the rest was being pushed out front and to the side. So I had to shovel snow lines, after snowblowing only about 3 inches of snowfall. MTD tech support got back to me the next day and asked if I had only been using first gear, which I was. If so, increase the speed to gear 2 or 3 and try again. I did and it worked perfectly. Also the unit did not travel too fast in these gears which still made it safe around my cars. I also gave it 5 stars because the plow went by another snowstorm leaving wet snow piled about 1.5ft high and this snowblower had no trouble with it. It was so effective I went down the street and did in front of my neighbours homes and driveways in no time. One neighbour commented that his snowblower would not get through it, but this Cub Cadet had zero trouble. Very impressed now that I know first gear is only for especially deep snow. I have included the video of what happens when only first gear is used in shallow snow. The snow is not drawn in but must fall in which doesn't work well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed - extremely bad product I bought the 3x 357cc Cub Cadet snowblower at the end of winter Feb 2019, we did not use it until this winter, we used it 3 times, now every time we pull the cord to start it, sparks and and a blue flame comes out the exhaust and you hear very loud explosion sound, similar to a gunshot. Also, the hand heated handles never worked properly. We are afraid to use the snowblower again and we like this was a waste of a lot of money for our family for this purchase. Cub Cadet, what can you do to compensate us for the really bad experience and the inconvenience of not having a working snowblower this winter?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Souffleuse de pauvre qualité Nous avons acheté cette souffleuse il y a quelques années mais n’avons jamais réussi à passer à travers une tempête sans un bris quelconque, c’est maintenant la troisième fois que le câble qui actionne la tarière lâche et donc nécessite a chaque fois une réparation coûteuse De plus il faut toujours retirer le banc de neige fait par la gratte car toutes les goupilles cèdent Je ne recommande aucunement ce produit, nous sommes pris avec ce navet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellente machine C'est la 5e saison que je l'utilise intensément, je suis en montagne avec beaucoup de neige et la seule chose que j' ai changé ce sont les goupilles de sécurité. Pour un fonctionnement optimum il est important d'ajuster la tension des câbles de vitesse et des augers, ce qui est très facile si on regarde le manuel de l'opérateur. C'est, est une 3x mais mon appréciation est de 10x

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Club Cadet X3 26" Love this Machine!! All the neighbours like it too! Did 4 driveways (after a nasty storm) in record time! Even dispensed with the snow ploughed drifts that boxed people in. The 3-auger system dealt with the hardened snow pack drifts easily. Luv my new "TOY"! H.O.B. 1st Esq

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Over rated I have had this machine 3 winters now . I bought it because I live on a main road and I get tired of the plows constantly filling my driveway back in after I clear it out.. The old 10 horse would struggle with the wet heavy stuff at the end of the drive so I bought this 3 stage .At first I was quite impressed. But it seems to loose power over time . It eats shear pins like crazy I spend half my life changing them in the cold and its not like im hitting any thing or objects lodged in the snow .. I have to keep a few packages of them on hand all the time .. Frankly I am sorry I ever bought this . It gets used maybe 3 or 4 times a year. For about an hour each use . all the paint is coming off inside the auger area and is rusting pretty bad. The only good thing I can say is the engine always seems to start real easy . when I first got it it would throw snow over a 6 foot fence with ease .I had to be careful I didn't break my neighbors windows . now it can hardly get the snow over the fence . paid a lot for this blower and for the money its just not any better then my old craftsman. . the tire literally came off the rim last year but they covered it under warranty.
