About - Cub Cadet 31AH57S
The Cub Cadet 31AH57S scored excellent for removal speed and was excellent at removing the plow pile at the end of the driveway, which can be a challenge for some machines. Throwing distance was excellent; this matters most if you have a wide driveway. Surface cleaning-how much snow was left on the surface-was excellent. Handling, which is how easy the machine is to maneuver (including turns), was excellent. Ease of using the various controls-such as speed, chute, and auger-was excellent. Requires the use of hearing protection. We found the heated handgrips to be a nice option. We found the headlight illumination useful when operating at night.

Comment:
We use it for a medium sized rural driveway. It's easy to use and always starts right up. However, it does not handle wet snow as well as the Cub Cadet Video seems to show. First dump of heavy wet snow we burned up an auger belt. The dealer was great, but... this product needs double auger belts.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
