The Cub Cadet 528 SWE Snow Blower is much more powerful than the smaller models in the Cub Cadet 500 series like the Cub Cadet 524 WE Snow Blower or the Cub Cadet 526 SWE Snow Blower. The engine powering the 528SWE is built in house by Cub Cadet themselves. It is a 4 stroke engine with a displacement of 0.36 liters. Using a positive traction/steerable wheel transmission, the snow blower has 6 speeds when traveling forward and 2 speeds for reversing.
The width of the clearing face is 0.71 m (28 inches), which allows the operator to clear a path over 2 feet wide on each passing. It can cut to a depth of 0.53 m (21 inches) on each passing also, which is enough to tackle very heavy overnight snowfalls. The snowblower is prevented from damaging and scratching the ground surfaces that it’s working on by adjustable skid shoes made from an ultra high molecular weight material that is specifically designed to leave no marks. These skid shoes are also reversible so that once they have worn down on one side, you can just flip them over instead of having to buy new ones.
The auger used to initially break up the snow has a diameter of 0.3 m (12 inches) like the rest of the snow blowers in this series. The broken up snow is shot out of the chute thanks to an impeller that has a diameter of 0.3 m (12 inches). Thankfully the chute is built from steel so that it doesn’t bend, break or deform during heavy use. This snowblower also uses a deflector on top of the chute to give greater accuracy to the direction and position you are sending the snow. The only difference between this snowblower and the Cub Cadet 528 WE Snow Blower is that the engine powering the 528WE is 0.28 liters in size.
