Cub Cadet 1X Snowblowers

Cub Cadet 1X Snowblowers

Just because you only need to clear a driveway doesn’t mean you have to suffer with a difficult to use, underpowered snowblower. Cub Cadet’s 1X snowblowers are built to make clearing small areas easy by providing practical design features and a range of engines to fit your needs.

One Stage Simplicity

The 1X uses a single auger to pick up and propel snow through the chute. This auger is 21 inches wide and can remove snow up to 13 inches high. It’s made from a combination of steel and high impact rubber that both cuts into the snow and helps pull the snowblower along the ground, requiring very little effort at the controls. This design reduces the chance of clogging and keeps the drive system simple for easy repairs.

The chute has an adjustable pitch and 190 degrees of rotation. On manual chute models, a large handle on the chute’s base makes it easy to adjust the angle of exiting snow without having to go far from the controls.

Cub Cadet’s characteristic focus on usability can be seen throughout the 1X. Engine controls are placed high on the rear of the snowblower base for easy starting, while everything has been sized to be usable when wearing gloves from the large starter handle to the chunky fuel cap and oil dipstick. Unlike the company’s other engines, the versions fitted in these snowblowers have a manual choke and priming bulb to get the right air/fuel mix for starts in extreme cold.

One Design, Three Models

Cub Cadet uses the basic design of the 1X for three models, each with different features to best fit your snow clearing needs.

The 1X 21 is the most basic and inexpensive model. It uses a 123cc OHV engine and has a manual chute. At 82 lbs, it’s lighter than most walk-behind mowers, making it a great choice if you don’t need to handle large amounts of snow and want something that’s easy to handle. Need a little more power? The 1X 21 HP uses a 179 cc Cub Cadet engine and only weighs a couple pounds more.

The 1X 21 LHP is powered by a 208 cc OHV engine, and it comes with several features that make it more convenient for use in extreme conditions. The remote chute control uses a joystick mounted below the handle to alter angle and pitch, while a built-in headlight below the handle makes it easier to clear snow at night so you can get a head start on winter storms. A built-in AC-powered electric starter eliminates the need for pull starts, but a pull-start backup is still included for use in areas where there aren’t any convenient outlets.


Cub Cadet covers the entire 1X including the engine for three years of residential use or one year of commercial use. This does not include regular wear items like auger paddles or shear pins.
