cub cadet 933 swe

I just bought this. It's got some paint issues but good otherwise. No-one seems to have anything to say about it. It's got the 16" impeller that I've sometimes seen referenced as a unicorn. Any comments anyone has about this machine, pro or con? Model 31ah9p7i710

I do not know anything about this but I've read good things on a few occasions about some 33" MTD units built with a 16" impeller (perhaps this in one of those units.....?).

I have never heard the term "unicorn" used in reference to a snowblower, or an impeller..
what does that mean?

"unicorn" refers to a hard (or very hard) to find item, in this case a walk behind snowblower with a 16" impeller. Yamaha "Ricky" snowblowers are also referred as one as there are very few of them available to buy. A service manual for that Yamaha "Ricky" is been referred as a "unicorn" as it is definitely very hard to find......

Closing the loop - -

It does indeed have MTD roots

Here's a couple pics. The powdercoat/rust was in terrible shape - it came from WI. I did a little cosmetic paint but couldn't afford to soak up too much of my time. Schoolbus yellow was the best color match

Looking forward to seeing how it throws. The snow is late arriving here this year. Funny they chose to put a 9HP engine on such a large rugged unit.

The operators manual date is 2005 so it must be after that??? Tecumseh ended when?

I see the 945swe used same motor, 9hp on 45" width. wretched underkill IMO

Had an MTD large frame Yard Machine with the 16 inch impeller. It could really huff snow a long way. Impressive indeed. Bigger impeller will give more distance and turns faster at the end of the blades, with all else equal. With an impeller kit it could handle slushy crap pretty decent. Bought it new and kept it 12 yrs. Got rid of it when I upgraded to Hondas.
