Cub Cadet X Series® Snowblowers: Which One is Right for You?
Missy McCabe·September 22, 2022
It won't be long before the white stuff starts falling from the sky, coating the ground in a fresh layer. Let's set the stage: you watch as your neighbour clears their driveway and sidewalk with ease, using a beefy snowblower that seems to eat up the snow. You can't help but feel a little jealous, especially since you know you'll be busting out that shovel in short order.
X Series® offers three levels of snow-clearing power, so regardless of how much snow you usually get, or the size and slope of your driveway, there's a model perfect for you.
Single-stage (1X®), two-stage(2X®), and three-stage (3X®) snowblowers from Cub Cadet:
1X® Snowblowers are ideal for extremely light/shallow snow. In general, single-stage snowblowers don't pack quite enough power to take on winter in Atlantic Canada. The auger is sturdy and high-performance, but can only handle about 6 inches of snow on smooth surfaces. For East Coasters, we recommend starting with a two-stage snowblower.
2X® snowblowers are perfect for clearing 12 inches of snow, slush, and everything in between. With Cub Cadet's unique X-Track™ technology, you'll feel unparalleled traction as you clear snow with minimal slippage. These two-stage snowblowers are also easy to handle and maneuver, thanks to their ergonomic design.
3X® snowblowers can easily and quickly remove up to 23 inches of snowfall at a comfortable pace. It will make short work of snow walls at the foot of your driveway. With 3X® exclusive technology, the 12" Induction Accelerator cuts through deep, heavy snow and launches it through the machine over greater distances.
So, which one is right for you? If you're not sure, we recommend checking out the Cub Cadet X Series® lineup in our showroom so that you can get a feel for each model. And be sure to ask one of our expert sales associates any questions you may have! They would be more than happy to help you find the perfect snowblower for your needs.
