Cub Cadet Pro model thoughts

Went looking for a Toro 928/ 1028 a couple days ago, they were out of stock, but the dealer had a new 30" 2 stage Cub there. Compared it next to some customer's Toros that were in for service and the Cub is significantly heavier, thicker sheet metal and wider tires. 14" auger & impeller, looked like a nice machine. 420cc engine should be more than enough for anyrhing.. Thoughts? Anyone else seen these in person yet?

I thought the 3 stage had the 420cc …. ?? I heard a lot of people not impressed with the 3 stage unit.

I think the 30 inch 2 stage comes with the 357cc … still a worthy and capable engine … and that machine does sure look good.

I don't own a Cub Cadet, and they are owned by MTD, so easy to get parts down the road.

Maybe it's just for Canada:

Boy, that link shows an impressive line-up …… I am so glad I have my older units which run great, as I would have to hit the lottery to get the new ones …

No lottery needed. although I'm not turning down lottery $$$!! Remember those prices are in Canadian dollars. That's right, check out the conversion for US to Canadian and plan your road trip. At those prices I think I'll get a couple, lol.

I hear some vintage engines running, is that your collection heading for the curb? Hang on to several of your old fav's just for the memories. It's time to make room for the 420cc's!!!

I have a 2016 CC 30" 3X with the 420CC engine. It has the plastic chute and is not a HD dealer model but I only paid $1000.00 CDN tax in at Lowe's. Been awesome. There are a lot of MTD haters on the forums that will tell you to get an Ariens or Honda for 2-3x the amount. Not worth it in my opinion. The performance is great and not had any problems with the 3X impeller. This blower can handle deep and wet snow with no issues and throws plenty far enough.
