I could not have anything but great things to say about Mowtown. I contacted them via phone on a Monday morning regarding a Cub Cadet mower they had in stock. I was given great information over the phone and immediately purchased on their website. Wednesday afternoon, the mower was sitting in my garage in North Carolina. Great Experience!
Excellent customer service and product. To be the best in your field of work must make you feel great, after an order and transaction is complete. Thank you again,Theodore Hobson and Mary Backus
Bought it on line, great deal,fast delivery the guy even wheeled it into the garage on the pallet, it's been working great no snow since it arrived.
I began searching for a zero turn and decided that the Cub Cadet ZT2 54 met my needs but it was at the very high end of my budget and I wanted to be under budget. I almost had to settle on the ZT2 50 just to get under budget and that bothered me because of a couple of features that the 54 had that that the 50 didn't. In my search I came across MowTown and they had the 54 for the same price as the 50! I was thinking this is used or something, so I decided to call. Leanne answered and explained that it was brand new and that is the price. I am in Oklahoma, so I would need it shipped. Their site said free shipping and lift-gate service. I asked her if this was the case for me and she said yes, but would have to check the shipping company they use. Well, just my luck, the shipping was going to cost around $600. Leanna said to give her a few and she would call around and see if she could get it cheaper. So I called her back about an hour later and she found me free shipping!! She did say that they are a little slower, but for my situation that was fine because my lawnmower works, so it wasn't something I needed ASAP. I placed the order on the 15th of April and received it today, 30 April. So 15 days for free shipping, lift-gate, and dropped off at my driveway. Not complaining. If I was closer, maybe the other shipping company may have worked, but I am not complaining. I received the mower and there was no damage. However, one part was missing, the "Hand Knob" that is used to adjust the lap bars to your liking. I called MowTown and he said Ill have a new one in 3 days. I could have pushed for overnight, but the bolt was there and all i needed was to put a 5/16th nut on it and I could run the mower. Worked perfectly. I cant say enough about this whole purchase. I am very satisfied and if I needed another mower or any other equipment they sold, I would definitely check with them first. Thanks MowTown!!!!
Waiting for the snow; may have to wait until next winter to use. Mowtown shipped the snow thrower really fast and it arrived in excellent condition. Minor assembly took only minutes to complete.
Mowtown has excellent customer service, speedy delivery and the Cub Cadet plows through 6 inches of snow without a problem. Not much snow this winter but I’m sure it will plow through a foot+ without an issue.
Keep in mind some of these are just personal opinions. All I can compare it to is my 20 year old Craftsman 26" 9hp blower. Which has served me well for 20 years. It was just time to get something bigger.
The GOOD: Nice and big. I can get through deep snow and cut wider paths. I love it. It throws the snow far. I now have to watch for cars coming down the street so I can stop, otherwise I would be hitting them with snow. It's much quieter than my old one even though it is a much bigger engine. She's a pretty looking machine. It runs and starts flawlessly. Plenty of power. The controls are nice. The chute rotation is about 190 degrees and is done with about a 1 1/2 turn of the chute control knob. My old one took 9 full turns each time I wanted to rotate my chute left or right. The speed of the machine is fast. 1st gear is like 3rd gear on my old blower. Since this machine can handle more snow, it is nice to be able to go a little faster at times.
The BAD: (my opinion) The handle controls are clumsy. Even though this is the style that all snow blowers seem to have moved to, I do not like them at all. My old blower had the lawnmower style handle and these new blowers have the bicycle style handles. It makes it much harder to pull the blower backwards. It makes it harder to push the blower forward when it needs a little shove. The power turning works just as advertised, but again it's just something I don't like. Maybe if I get use to it, I'll appreciate it more. The tires traction. Don't like them at all. My 20 year old blower had outstanding tire traction. It would literally keep pushing into a snow bank. The tires on my Cub Cadet love to just spin. As soon as I get into any deeper heavy packed snow they will spin.(which brings me back to the bicycle style handle bars and not being convenient when you have to push the blower). These tires will not allow me to back my blower up onto my front and back decks. The tires just won't catch the stair tread edge. They just spin. My old blower would easily back up the steps. I ended up having to go out and buy a $300 cordless snowblower to do my decks with. All because of tires. Then there is the speed concern. I know I talked about it as a good, but there is also a bad to it. My first gear is too fast. When I get into some deep hard packed snow, I want to be able to go slower. With the way the tires spin, the last thing I need is this moving too fast.
The UGLY: The unit came to me in a cardboard box on a pallet. That is good. Yet when I opened it and start assembling it, it turns out the bottom edge (scrapper blade?) of my brand new blower was bent down (I can't figure how that was even possible). It formed a "V" shape and made adjusting the cutting depth impossible. I did not complain because I did not feel like having to have this shipped back to the seller, then wait for a new one to arrive. Would have taken weeks. I just took a hammer and beat it back into shape.
Nice machine! Very happy with the mower.
This is one awesome machine, and the purchase from
Mowtown Waldo Implement couldn't have been easier or better. The price was the best I found and it arrived earlier then expected in perfect condition. This snow blower has exceeded my expectations, which were really high after all the research I did, it has handled it all. Uneven terrain around the chicken coop, snow pile off the roof or from the plow, deep wet snow, it ate them all and threw it out of the area. Highly recommend this for the money.
The Cub Cadet 2x 26 was a great purchase. Assembled easily, started easily and cuts through snow like a champ. Even the stuff at the end of the driveway from street plowing.
Everything delivered as promised
Was Delivered to my door in less than a week, easy set up and throws like a champ, very impressed overall. Lots of power in deep snow in Northern Minnesota.
It’s so much better than the Toro 828 I replaced. It feels better built and you get a 3 stage, hand warmers, and the most power. The more snow the better for this beast
Ariens Deluxe 28" SHO Two-Stage Snow Blower
Motown was very prompt shipping my snowblower out. They were also very professional dealing with one of my shipping concerns. I will definitely do business with them in the future.
I contacted Mowtown Waldo Implement because I wanted to purchase an Ariens Pro 32 Hydro RapidTrack Snow Blower but it was not available at any local dealers and I preferred to buy from a Wisconsin dealer rather than from a dealer across the country on Amazon. They matched the Amazon price and shipped it right away.
I did not get to use this snow blower yet, but I am sure it is going to do a great job. Mowtown Waldo was great to work with, fast shipment. I would buy from them again.
Got my new blower in three days of ordering. Delivered right to my driveway ready to tackle the snow. 100%
Received my cub Cadet 2x 350cc snow thrower on time and without any issues. The delivery driver was very friendly. I hope the snow thrower is the last one I have to buy!!
1st snow of the season here in north NJ
Day 1: Miserable wet slush. When it seemed like the chute was about to clog, I kept going and the buildup eventually rammed thru and the 3rd stage threw it some distance
I was able to clear the berm left by the street plows, a major source of trouble (as soon as you clear your driveways, they plow it closed again) The Trac 3x30 was able to push it all off the road, so if he has no snow to push, he can't move it in front of my driveways!
At one point I broke 3 shear pins after hitting large gravel. This tendency can be reduced with the RH height settings. The pins were far easier to change than my old Snapper. They pushed out with a drift punch by hand.
Some technique must be learned to do tight turns with the trac release.
If you have a problem with the chute clogging, you likely broke a shear pin
My Cub Cadet 3X30 pro arrived in good shape and was easy to put together. It fired right up after filling it with gas and runs good. Its only October so i havent got to use it yet but it looks like it is going to work well. The three LED light will be very handy as well.
No Briggs junk, made in CHINA engine!!!!!!!!!!!
Haven’t used it yet.
Have only given the new mower/tractor limited use so I can't speak to durability or endurance (hence 4 instead of 5 star rating). However as an older user with two replaced hips and other body parts that weren't so durable themselves, several features of this product were immediately apparent to me. The bottom part of the mower where your feet rest is level, low, and uncluttered. That makes getting on and off the mower a much easier and safer operation. The brake pedal also is lower and easier to reach with a left foot that gets heavier with age. There is also a tray/compartment in front of the steering wheel that holds the glasses you forgot to take off very securely. I was impressed with the blade engagement mechanism. It's placement and method of operation makes it possible to easily and accurately engage/disengage the blades as when crossing a stone driveway.
I have only two slightly negative points. First, if you have stopped growing taller and started growing wider, the arm rests on the seat might be a little narrow to be comfortable with both in the down position. I suspect this might be more my problem than the manufacturers. Lastly, the tight turning radius is a really good thing but it gives the steering a somewhat loose, sloppy feel. It has no trouble holding a straight line but the "feel" of the steering takes a little getting used to (one more trick for this old dog to learn).
The motor runs and the blades cut as you would expect a new mower to.
