Here is a closer look at what the 1X series brings to the table.

The 1X 21″

This is Cub Cadet’s starter snow thrower, with it’s 21″ clearing width and weighing only 88 pounds. It is easy to maneuver on eight-inch wheels and comes with Cub Cadet’s standard propeller driven system so you can comfortably walk behind the machine instead of having to push it.

It has a 190 degree easy adjust chute and electric push start button. This model also includes an LED headlight on the dash panel to help you see even in the early mornings and the fog.  This model was featured as a “Best Buy” by Consumer Digest.
