Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Impossible to maintenance. Well, let's see. For starters, it throws half as far as my Troy Bilt 277cc. Its too light, so it bounces everywhere, and the shave plate doesnt push through anything. I dont know why the wheels are so narrow, hardly any traction. Then for winter storage, the maintenance page says to remove the spark plug, and put in oil. Good luck with that. You would have to disassemble everything from the entire upper exhaust shielding, the front control panel, and the entire front mast assembly, just to have a shot at it. Even if you got all that off, the plug area is buried in the motor, so have fun getting oil to it, or getting the spark plug back on. Looks great. Critical flaws in the design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine. Oil level difficult to measure. I found it difficult to measure the oil level on the dip stick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm disappointed I'm disappointed, I bought the snowblower in Nov2020 and used it at the most 6 times since then for heavy snowfalls. This year I used it once a month ago, the snow was very slushy and the unit clogged alot. With the snowfall yesterday, I tried to start it and the starter won't turn to start the unit..not a sound..could the starter be frozen...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionnal ! I bought this snowblower last year and I love it ! It is an easy start just by pulling the rope I haven’t used the electric starter yet, just to show how easy it is. I recommend buying this snowblower.

Do these snowblowers( 28" Cub Cadet) come with the electrical cord for the electric start. Model 31AH5DVT596

Asked by: Dave
Thank you for your question. The convenient electric start function on this snow thrower can be used with any extension cord rated for minimum 13 amps at 125 volts, grounded and rated for outdoor use (extension cord is not included with the snow thrower). Home Depot item number 1001015965 is an excellent choice.

Is the throttle user controlled or set at the factory

Asked by: Colin
Thank you for your question. This engine features an operator controlled sliding throttle lever. For best power, lubrication and cooling operate the snow thrower at full throttle when blowing snow.
