1130SWE Cub Walk-Behind Snowblower

Postby Zorro » Mon Feb 23, 2015 9:09 pm

I decided to pamper myself this year by purchasing a new (used) snowblower. While cruising through Craigslist I found the snowblower of my dreams, a 1130SWE Cub Cadet walk-behind for $100.00. It needed an auger gearcase, and some paint, but what the heck! It has power steering, heated grips, headlight, a great-running 10.5 hp Techumseh, and a nice wide 30" auger. The new gear box set me back $180.00, then the can of "XO rust", and I am up and running. It took a few days for the paint to dry in my unheated garage, but I was able to heat the garage before painting, so at least the metal was warm(er) before the paint went on.
Using this machine is really nice with the heated grips and power steering. I like this snowblower so much that I treated it to a pair of drift cutters. :) A cab will be added at some point too.
Hold her Knute, she's headin' for the buckwheat!

Heated grips and power steering? I'd like those on a Cub along with a heated seat. :D Looks you got a great deal there.
