New 3x 26 hd

Just got delivered a new 3x 26 HD purchased through a local dealer here in Canada. What drew me to the cub cadet HD version was the larger 420cc engine, thicker metal and also a rod for the transmission controls. Seems like there are a lot of cc haters on here. I looked at Ariens, toro etc but I preferred the cc. So we will see how it works so bring on the snow. I am a little concerned about shear pins but it would seem the newer models are better. Anyways pretty exited to try it for the first time.

Welcome to the forum from Michigan. Here is a link to your model:https://www.cubcadet.ca/en/snow-blow...AH5EVX596.html
It will be great to get your perspective on this HD beast! As far as brands go so far I've had Honda, Toro, Husqvarna, & Simplicily.
What's nice about this "hobby" for me it's been easy to try out different stuff and not break the bank, lol.

2016 Ariens Professional 28
2017 Toro Power Clear 721R
2018 Simplicity Select 1024

Well I used this machine to do two driveways this evening. My guess is about 5cm of not heavy wet snow but not dry fluffy snow. Under neath was wet. I think it did pretty good. All I can tell you is this machine will love deep snow. When I went through some piles the machine kicked into high gear and threw it a pretty good distance. I was able to use gear 5 on the 5cm and no issues. We will see what the rest of winter brings lol. Did two fairly large driveways in less than half an hour.
