Hi, I'm brand new to the forum. I too have a Cub Cadet 3X snowblower, 357 cc. We got about 2 feet of wet snow all at once 2 days ago. You can see where the center impeller just hits the snow and its' like running into a brick wall, and forward motion stops. I modified the center impeller so that it reached out beyond the round shaft cover. That helped some. I think if a person rebuilt the impellers to be stronger and more aggressive, it might help it perform better. I agree, most snowblowers aren't made to handle much more than a few inches of snow. My real question is: What can I get that will handle a 24 inch wet snow, with possibly 36 inch drifts, like the snow storm we just had. I would rather not have to use a machine that was not designed to handle the demands of the snow I had to remove. Any suggestions for what I should consider?
