A driveway full of snow only looks pretty in a Christmas card. It never looks good on your driveway or sidewalk. The 500 Series of gas-powered Cub Cadet snow blowers handle that snow as efficiently as possible and require the least effort on the part of the operator. These snow blowers also provide years of dependable operations offering great value for the purchaser.
The 500 Series includes five models ranging from 24 to 30 inches in blower width. The larger models also include larger engines and snow impellers to handle the higher volume of snow from the wider blower. Of course, the wider snow blowers move the most snow in the least time but are not always necessary for homeowners with limited driveway or sidewalk space. The heart of each 500 Series snow blower is its four-stroke gas engine. Standard features include electric start to get the engine running quickly when the snow is falling. The variety of capacities offered by the 500 Series lets the buyer find a machine with the right capacity for their needs. Each offer the best possible value for the operators that need that particular level of capacity.
All of the Cub Cadet 500 Series snow blowers offer standard features like headlights, multiple forward and reverse speeds and a 21 inch height of intake. All but the 524 WE, the base model of the series, include steerable wheels. The steerable wheels improve the maneuverability of the snow blower allowing the operator to work in tighter spaces. It also reduces the effort the operator must expend to turn the snow blower under normal conditions. The “Cool Blue” skid shoes slide smoothly along the driveway or sidewalk reducing damage to the surfaces while allowing the blower to clear the ice and snow right down to the surface.
One of the most convenient features available on a snow blower is the Zero-Turn Posi-Steer. This optional feature allows one-handed operation and turns of the snow blower along with the ability to make a 180-degree turn. This feature is especially useful when clearing snow from sidewalks or other narrow spaces. Other options include heated handlebars greatly improving operator comfort on cold days.
