Consumers Digest editors have awarded three of Cub Cadet’s snow throwers (snow blowers) a coveted Best Buy distinction.

The Cub Cadet 221 LHP, 526 SWE and 528 SWE represent three of 10 gasoline-powered products highlighted. According to the publication, the Best Buy designation is only applied to those products that deliver exceptional value-a rating reserved for fewer than 3 percent of the competing models in any given product category.

With many strong brands on the market in this category, this award is even more impressive. After a rigorous assessment of criteria including: overall performance, handling, power, durability and ease of use, the 221 LHP, 526 SWE and 528 SWE were among the best in the single-stage and two-stage categories, respectively.
