2014 Cub Cadet 24 inch 208cc Model 524 SWE Snow Blower Review –

Is the Cub Cadet 24 inch 208cc Model 524 SWE snow blower right for you?

The Cub Cadet 24 inch 208cc Model 524 SWE is the easiest 24 inch snowblower to use. The 3 features that make it the easiest are the height of the controls, the power steering and the 4-way chute control. These features plus the standard premium features you find on a Cub Cadet make it one of the best snowblowers for anyone who has difficulty using a snow blower. Yes, you can buy one of these for your spouse and she will be able to use it.  And anyone who is tired of “manhandling” a snowblower will really like how easy this one is to use.

This snow blower is sized for most 2 car suburban driveways.  It has enough power to blow heavy, wet snow and the intake is tall enough to handle 24 inch drifts. It works well on gravel driveways.

Cub Cadet 524 SWE

Cub Cadet 524 SWE

Cub Cadet prides itself in offering premium snow blowers. The Cub Cadets have more features and are the heaviest built snow blowers from MTD.  One of the items I like best about the Cub Cadet is the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual goes through and explains all of the yearly maintenance needed to keep your 524 SWE running for many years. The maintenance takes about an hour once a year and yes, with a few hand tools you can do the maintenance.

MTD is a primary snow thrower manufacture and offers snow blowers for all homeowners. The Yard Machines line is the economy line. These low-priced units get the job done, but lack the features found in their other lines. Troy-Bilt is their rural lifestyle line. These snow blowers have more features than the Yard Machines but do not have all the features found on the Cub Cadet. The Cub Cadet is their premium line and all of the items in the line have the most features. MTD also makes snow throwers for other brands and they are built to those brands specifications

 The features I like most.

Most of the time I pick two features I like most but in this case I like most of the features of this machine.  I will go through each one below.

What makes this snow blower the best 24 inch snow thrower?

  • 24 in. clearing width; 24 in. intake height
  • The Posi-Steer makes this snowblower the easiest to use.  When moving just pull the small trigger under the handle in the direction you want to go and the snow blower go that way. Unlike most 24 inch snowblowers with solid axles the power steering makes turning the 524 SWE effortless.
  • 208cc Electric start Cub Cadet 4-Cycle OHV engine. The 208cc Craftsman motor has way more power than you will ever need. You will be able to move snow faster than you ever could with your old 5 hp/179cc snow blower. The motor has a throttle control so you can idle the snow blower down if you want to before turning it off and a safety key. (Other brands do not have a throttle and you can only shut off the motor by removing the safety key.)  It also has a stepped choke so you can control the fuel mixture for all temperatures.  This engine has an excellent reputation and I know that as long as you use good fresh fuel and change the oil as recommended this engine will last you many, many years.
  • Cool Blue skid shoes. These rust-resistant, non-marking, reversible skid shoes are the strongest skid shoe on the market. These shoes are exclusive to the Cub Cadet line and last longer than steel shoes. They don’t scratch your driveway or patio and glide effortlessly along surfaces for better maneuverability
  • 6 Forward 2 reverse speeds. 6 Forward 2 reverse speeds for easy snow clearing at your pace. Yes, most snow blowers have these but the speeds on the 524 SWE are matched well to the size of the snow blower.
  • Push button electric start makes it incredibly easy to start in the tough winter conditions
  • 4-way pitch control and chute rotation. I call this chute control a “forearm control” To use it you take your left hand, reach over the top of the handle and grab it like you are picking up a baseball bat by the end. Pull the red button with you middle fingers and use your forearm to move the chute from side-to-side.  Pushing or pulling on the handle raises and lowers the deflector at the top of the chute. The tension that holds the deflector in place is controlled by a wing nut.  If you use the 4-way chute this way it is one of the easiest to use on the market.  It quickly rotates,  is very easy to operate and is designed to last longer than the old bottom crank designs. The “hanging chute” design eliminates the chute binding up from heavy wet snow. The hanging chute stays in place when you let go of the red button. The extra long chute controls the snow better than your old short chute and you don’t get as much snow blowing back in your face. The chute is made of a durable polymer chute and has proven just about indestructible. Snow never sticks to it. I also like the chute control a lot.
  • In-dash headlight allows you to clear your driveway any time of the day or night
  • 15 in. x 5 in. X-trac tires are sized well for this machine. The tires have a lot more traction than the ones found on the cheaper 24 inch snow blowers. You will have plenty of traction to go out in the backyard and clear a spot of lawn for your dog.
  • Use with 5W-30 oil for best results, unit comes pre-filled with oil
  • Warranty is 3-year residential/1-year commercial
  • MFG Model # : 524 SWE
  • MFG Part # : 31AM53TR756

Reviews

Cub Cadet 24 inch 208cc Model 524 SWE Snow Blower has more 5 star reviews than most other snow throwers and I feel they are all honest. I only found 2 negative reviews. One was because the new owner didn’t follow the assembly instructions and one was not assembled right at the factory. (Cub Cadet has one of the best records for getting the product put together right, the first time. Their “build quality” is the best)

two stage snow thrower is one of the best value snow blowers on the market. I called it a “best buy” first last year and all of the other major magazines and review sites agree. I have a 2 car drive, 70 feet long, a patio and I clear an area in the backyard for my dogs. I would buy this machine for my own use.

Where To Get One

Home Depot and Tractor Supply are the best place to get your Cub Cadet.  They always have the best price and a great reputation for getting the purchase to you quickly. They also have good customer service.

Be Careful! This snow blower is also sold through online only stores! But make sure they have a good reputation of taking care of you after the sale. You may find other “factory-direct discount” stores and websites trying to sell it, but make sure they can and will get you service if you ever need it.

 All Snow Blowers need maintenance. When you get your new snow blower home be sure to read the manual, check all the fluid levels and bolts. Learn how to change the shear pins and inspect the drive belts. (The belts are easy to change if you tear one up) ALWAYS have extra shear pins on hand. Learn how to start it and operate it. Snow blower engines run differently than your lawn mower engine. Most of the time you will have the choke on to some degree. (That’s why there are 4 positions on the choke) Practice using it on you driveway. (Don’t run the engine more than 10 minutes if the temperature is over 45 degrees) If you have any questions leave a comment below and we (other readers and myself) will gladly answer your questions.  Above all PLEASE use a fuel stabilizer like Sea Foam or blue Stabil in your gas. 

Value: At around $849 it is a good value.

Service & Parts Availability: Service and parts are readily available through Cub Cadet authorized repair centers. Home Depot and Tractor Supply are easy to work with if you have a problem.

Parts You Will Need:

All MTD manufactured snow throwers 30 inches and under use the same shear pin. Here are some from Sears.  Shear Pins: Craftsman Snowblower Shear Pins or Craftsman Snowblower Shear Pins Same pin, just a different clip.

  1. i been reading your reviews and gotten more confused on what to buy..live in long island ny where lately it seems everytime we get snow,it snows more than 20 inches.my driveway is 2 car lengths long and can fit 4 cars total..i was looking at the Power Smart DB7659 which gets great reviews and good price but you said its good for smaller driveways..how is the 24 inch version? looking to spend least as possible but dont want to regret in the long run either..thanks

    • @rich, I’m not going to recommend any of the Chinese built snow blowers this year. Yes, you can buy one for $20 less (on Amazon) than a Craftsman 24" 179cc Dual-Stage Snowblower 13" x 4" X-Trac tires. Yes, LCT is a very good engine. And yes, when you call their 800 number someone answers.

      I have two issues with this Power Smart. 1. Weight & Balance. The machine is not balanced well and hard to turn. It is hard to maneuver, etc. 2. Parts. Yes, You can get parts this year but what about 2, 5, 10, or 20 years from now. You can get parts for 20 year old Craftsman’s MTD’s, Ariens, Toro, etc.

      By the way the advertised price on most sites is $439 but that does not include the $130-150 shipping. Add in the shipping and the snow blower is more expensive than the Craftsman.

  3. Hi there. I am about to purchase my first snow thrower and am interested in the Cub Cadet (524SWE), however Home Depot shows it as a DISCONTINUED item. So that leads me to two questions: 1. Is that a true statement? 2. If it is discontinued, does that present a problem for me in terms of service or parts down the line?

    Your website was very helpful. Thank you.

    View Comment
    • @Scott, No, you will be able to get parts for that model for the next 20 years. This has been a VERY good year for snow blower sales and I’m sure Home Depot is out of them for the year. That’s why they are listed as discontinued. If you want one now go to cubcadet.com and use the dealer locator to find a dealer near you.

    Very helpful good work. Thank you

  5. Hi Paul, I have a small home, but need something powerful enough to tear up the packed in stuff that the plows like to bury the driveway in, at around 3 ft in height and depth. I also don’t want the chute to freeze up, or the controls. so I have concerns about the models with a remote joystick on the dash instead of a crank. Would you agree that there’s any validity to that concern, or should I just go for the Cub Cadet 3×24 model? Thanks!

  6. Hi Paul,

    Great site! I was looking at the Craftsman 88173 until I saw this Cub Cadet model and review. This is the one I will get this season. The power steering sold me :)

    Of course, the Snow Days 10% off sale just ended today. Does Cub Cadet only do that once, or can I expected it again( or another sale) in the near future?

    Also, when talking about maintenance you mention “Sea Foam or blue Stabil in your gas”. Isn’t the blue for Marine? Is one brand better than the other?

    Thanks !

    • @Dave, All the brands except Craftsman usually only have one pre-season sale.

      Home Depot doesn’t have any available online, but check your local store to see if they have any at $799 yet.

      If you live near a Tractor Supply (I wish I did) they still have them available for $799. Cub Cadet 524 SWE

      Both Sea Foam and Blue Stabil have a moisture absorber. With snow we heat up and cool down the engines around lots of moisture. So these fuel stabilizers not only keep the fuel fresh, they also absorb any moisture that gets into the fuel and also keeps the ethanol from separating. I use SeaFoam but doesn’t mean it’s the best. It just has always worked for me.

  7. Glad I found this site…lots of good info.

    My Snapper 7HP gave up the ghost last winter after many years of good service. It seems that you are leaning towards the Cub Cadet 524 & the Ariens 920021. My only experience with the Ariens equipment was slightly disappointing because it was like maneuvering a garbage truck. I’m wondering which one of these top rated machines you would buy. Thanks.

  8. Are all cub cadets the same regardless of whether they are sold at a dealer or a big box store like Tractor Supply? Just had a dealer tell me that those at the big box store have inferior parts and were made with less ‘workmanship’. I am interested in buying a 2x 524 SWE.

    View Comment
    • @Raul, I really wish people would quit trying to sell a product by telling you what is wrong with someone else’s instead of telling you what they can do for you. That dealer clearly feels threatened by the “big box store” down the street. He should be telling you what he can do better for you than TSC. (Examples that would work a lot better than slamming the competition are quicker service, better parts availability, will spend as much time with you as you need to learn and use the snow blower, etc.)

      I’m sorry he had to say that. A 524 SWE at his store and a 524 SWE at Home Depot or Tractor Supply is the same. If you live near a Tractor Supply (I wish I did) they still have them available for $799. Cub Cadet 524 SWE
      icon is a really good deal at Tractor Supply.

      Just to be fair to all the dealers out there who are better than that. The dealers do have a line of Cub Cadet snow blowers not sold at the box stores. These models have some heavier duty components (like a metal chute)
      These include:
      3X™ 24″ HD
      3X™ 26″ HD
      3X™ 28″ HD
      3X™ 30″ HD
      3X™ 30″ TRAC

  9. Hi Paul,

    Thanks for this site. It’s great to have a resource that isn’t sponsored by one of the manufacturers.

    Do you know what the Canadian equivalent to this model is?

    Thanks!

  10. Paul, I live on Long Island & have 3 car wide driveway. Looking to purchase 24 inch model which throws snow good distance. Based on your site I narrowed to 3 – cadet swe power steer, compact Arian & new Husq(limited info). Thanks. Mark

    View Comment
    • @Mark, The 24 inch that throws the farthest is the Ariens 24 Deluxe or Platinum. It is advertised to throw up to 50 feet and you can probably throw snow on your neighbors roof. You will have to find an Ariens Dealer to get one.

      Now picking the best of the other 3 is a hard choice. They all have the same size motor, same size impeller and auger. They should throw snow up to 40 feet.

      The power steering on the Cub Cadet 524SWE makes it the easiest to use. The Ariens Compact is all metal including the dash. The new Husqvarna has a very unique feature – you can adjust the height of the handles for tall or short people. U just wrote a complete article on the new Husqvarna. See the home page to read it.

  11. Hey Paul, does the Cub Cadet 524SWE accept the MTD/Cub Cadet heated hand grips? I didn’t see them listed as an accessory at Home Depot, but online these are said to be compatible. My concern is the plug into the harness. They seem simple enough to install. If so this is one awesome machine!

  12. Paul,
    I have the cub cadet 524 swe and I am wondering how to set the choke.
    I know where it is but there is nothing there to tell you what setting you have it at, makes it very hard to start when your not sure of your choke setting.
    I’d be grateful for any info you have on this .
    Thanks,
    Mike

    View Comment
    • @Mike, You turn the the choke control all the way to the left (counterclockwise) to start the engine. Set the throttle to Rabbit. Push the primer bulb 4-5 times. Pull the rope once or twice. If it doesn’t begin to start push the primer bulb 4 more times.

      When it starts to run it will be running very rough. Then turn the choke one notch at a time to the right until the engine starts to run smooth. Then one more notch. (Sometimes depending on the temperature/humidity you may be able to turn the choke all the way to “open” but sometimes not) When you are done just move the throttle to stop.

  14. Hi Paul,
    I spent a few weeks researching snow blowers, mainly Ariens, Cub Cadet, Husqvarna, Toro and now Sears Craftsman. Because of limited storage space in my single car garage and the walk-through door width, 24″ would be the ideal size for me. The only two features I prefer to have is power steering & single joystick chute control. I want a higher end, rugged consumer not commercial grade model. 800 to 1,500 dollar range would be ok. Today I went to Home Depot and looked at the Cub Cadet 524SWE. It had everything that I wanted and looked to be of good quality. Then disappointingly I noticed how short the height of the handlebars where. All the other brand machines on display were 4-6″ higher. I would have to walk bent over a good amount to use this model. I’m 6’4″ and I think that this machine would only be comfortable for someone 6′ or less. I read a lot of reviews and I don’t remember seeing anything mentioned about machine heights. I’m really glad that I hadn’t ordered one on-line for home delivery. I guess I need to pay attention to the assembled height specs and hope that it’s a fairly accurate spec. I’m thinking now about looking at the 26″ Craftsman even though the extra width will make it a little difficult to get in and out of the garage. It’s their smallest model with power steering and I like the idea of the advertised “quiet engine” technology claim. The Ariens Deluxe 24 might be good, but I don’t know if I like the way that you have to reach over the control panel to rotate the chute. Also half of my drive way is sloped and I’ve read a number of comments about the Auto-Turn feature having traction problems on slopes or not always tracking straight. Without having used one myself, its hard to tell if that’s really a problem or not. The Ariens Deluxe Platinum looks good with the quick-turn chute control but it also has the questionable Auto-Turn feature. I didn’t think it was going to be this hard to buy a snow-blower :)

    View Comment
    • @EJG, Unfortunately the Craftsman 88694 is the same height as the Cub Cadet ( it uses the same tires)

      I don’t especially like the chute control on the Ariens Deluxe 24 either but it is a simple and reliable system. I could get used to it if I bought the Deluxe 24. Comparing it to the Cub Cadet/Craftsman it is stronger and won’t ever give you a failure. (The Cub Cadet/Craftsman deflector is hard to adjust. It’s either too tight or it wants to ride up all the time.)

      (The Ariens Platinum 24 SHO is a dealer only snow blower and it has the better lever chute control)

      The Auto-Turn. Please don’t believe every review you read. In this case the problems were with the setup of the snow blower, not the Auto-Turn. Here is an article explaining the whole debacle: Problems With Ariens Auto-Turn Snow Blowers?

      One other snow blower to consider if you can find one. The Husqvarna ST324 is also a high capacity snow blower with all the creature features. If you can’t live with the Auto-Turn take a hard look at this one. Husqvarna ST324

      View Comment
      • I went to both the Ariens & Husqvarna websites and called 2 or 3 of each of their recommended dealers who all basically said the same thing, “sold out for the season” for the Ariens Platinum & ST324 models. I did visit a local Toro dealer today who gave me the contact info for another local dealer who has 2 of the Toro Power Max HD 826 OXE models in stock. I’ll probably pick up one of those tomorrow. The chute control worked pretty smoothly on the 24″ version that the local dealer that I visited had in stock but they lacked the power steering feature. It seemed like a very well built machine.

        View Comment
        • @EJG, Yes, Snow blowers are getting hard to find. Ariens can regroup and get more out, but I don’t know if anyone else can.

          The 826 OXE is a good snow blower and it does have power steering. I really, really like the chute controls on the Toro. They are the easist to use.

  15. Hey Paul-
    I’m a single mom with a small infant and a dog buying my first home and want to do my own driveway (paved) and sidewalks to save money. Driveway is about 2 cars wide and 2 or 3 cars long. I might also need to clear some space in my back yard for the dog (grass). I want simple, fast, affordable, and something that will work on Vermont snow storms. The less I have to do, the less hassle, and the faster the better. I’m pretty handy but because I have so much on my plate I just want something that I can rely on and not fight with. Would you recommend the cub cadet or something else? Thank you!

    • @Alicia, You’ve done a great job on your research. I feel the Cub Cadet 524SWE is about the easiest snow blower to use for your size drive. It will go out in the back and clean a space for your dogs also. The power steering makes it very easy to use.

      I checked around and Home Depot is out but Tractor Supply has them available for $799. Here is the link for Tractor Supply. Cub Cadet 524 SWE

  16. Hi,
    I have a fairly steep driveway that is 2 cars wide and about 3 cars long and live in Massachusetts. You said the Cub Cadet has more than enough power but do you think I will have any issues with it going up my driveway?

    View Comment
    • @Tom, The snow blower will do as well as any other snow blower. What I mean is it has enough power that when blowing snow you won’t kill the engine going up hill. It has good deep tread tires so traction should not be an issue.

      Do you feel comfortable walking up the drive with snow on it? If you do then the snow blower will do just fine.

      If your driveway is so steep that even with good tires you lose traction, then you may have to invest in a set of tire chains.

  18. Hi:

    I am looking to replace my 17 year old snow blower I got from Tractor Supply its a murray 627804X18. I was looking at a cub cadet 2 x 524swe or a Ariens 920021. Both have good reviews. I have a 4+ car paved driveway. Live in Central NY, so get some heavy snow storms, plus the plow hits my driveway good.

        • @Harry, At my age I would go with the Cub Cadet. I’ve never owned a snow blower with power steering but after testing them for movingsnow that is one feature I definitely want. I like the chute control better on the Ariens but I also know how to use the control on the Cub Cadet so I can live with it. (You have to adjust the deflector tension often unless you are throwing for distance all the time) But I like that the handlebar on the Cub Cadet is lower and for me that is easier to use. Other wise the capabilities of the 2 machines are the same.

  19. Got this machine in Oct 2011, only used it twice first winter…machine began getting hard to start, cleaned carburator, replaced carb gasket…then once it started, ran about 30 seconds, died out, repeatedly…took it in to shop, they advise rings are shot and low compresion- Happy to report CC is standing behind there warrenty( at least thats what they said) despite being about 80 days past the 3 yr deadline..what would cause this issue? Machine is still like new, followed maintenance schedule to a tee…?????

    • @Bob, I’m glad they are going to take care of the problem. Bad rings are usually a mechanical defect problem. A cylinder not bored exactly right and out of round. The rings not seating when new or just plain a bad set of rings.

  20. thank you so much for this site! I was debating between the Ariens 24 and This Cub Cadet. I really wanted the Ariens since I heard they run forever, but I could not find one in stock locally. Online there is a lot of price gouging I noticed. After much research I decided on this guy, should have it in a couple of days.

    I do have a question about storage though. Should I really empty the fuel at the end of the season? My friend did it to his and the next season he had to get all the moister out of his fuel line and the carb. So now I’m not sure if I should or not. It is stored in a garage during the year.

    Thanks!

    • @Cody, each manufactures has their own suggested storage method. Mine is this.

      Put 2 tablespoons per gallon Sea Foam in your gas can. (You can use any fuel stabilizer with a moisture absorber) Go get fresh fuel and pour some into your tank. Run the engine for 5 minutes or so.

      If you have a fuel shutoff leave the engine running and turn the valve off. Let the engine run out of fuel. The fuel stabilizer will coat the insides of your carb.

      If you don’t have a fuel shutoff most of the manufactures suggest running it out of fuel.

  21. Paul, a sincere thank you from a future first time snowblower owner who likes to do research, this site is a godsend. I have a question if you don’t mind. I was all set to buy the Craftsman 88173, but of course it’s too late in the season to find them in stock near me. I decided to go with the 88972, as it seemed to have a nice set of upgrades for only $70 more than the 88173. Then I found this review, and now I’m really confused. For the same price as the 88972, the Cub Cadet 524SWE offers power steering, 4-way joystick, and a headlight too! To get those features I’d have to spend $100 more for the Craftsman 88694. It seems too good to be true, what am I missing? Is the 26″ width and the quiet engine worth it? I live just north of NYC, and have a 20×70′ driveway. Which would you recommend and why? Thanks!

    View Comment
    • Hi Gary, well the 24 inch is big enough for your drive. A 26 inch will save you about 10 minutes – max.

      The key decision is: Is power steering more important than the quiet motor? If it is, get the Cub Cadet. If both are important buy the Craftsman 88694.

      An interesting thing happened this year. The price of the the 88173 can up $50 and the price of the 524SWE went down $50. I’ve had a lot of new owners go for the Cub Cadet instead of the Craftsman.

      Unless you live in the Midwest Home Depot is out of the 524 SWE. If you want one yet this season check Tractor Supply or a local dealer.

      View Comment
  22. @Paul, Thanks for the quick and informative reply! I think I can still get the 524SWE if I’m willing to drive a little. Tonight is supposed to be the last significant snowfall, so maybe I’ll wait until next season… maybe I’ll catch a sale. Until then, I’ll keep this site bookmarked. Thanks again!
