Things to keep in mind when buying a snow thrower

Looking for a new snow thrower? Here are a few things to think about before your purchase.

If you want the best snow thrower for your needs you should consider the size of the area you want to clear and the typical snow conditions in your part of the country. A snow thrower with a powerful engine and wide working width will save you time if the area is large and covered in deep, heavy snow. Smaller areas covered in dry snow require less power. The Husqvarna range of snow throwers includes several different engine sizes, and working widths between 61 cm and 76 cm.

One-stage throwers for light household work

The one-stage thrower is a simpler type of machine that is perfect if you are only doing lighter snow shovelling work for your home. Unlike the two-stage thrower, the one-stage snow thrower doesn’t have an impeller fan. It also doesn’t have powered wheels; instead the auger screw drives it forward.

Two-stage throwers for heavier snow

The two-stage models are the most effective for heavy and packed snow. Two-stage means that the snow moves through the machine in two steps; first through the auger screw before being discharged through the chute by an impeller fan. The two-stage models also have powered wheels.

A few other things to keep in mind when you buy a snow thrower:


A snow thrower with power steering is easier to manoeuvre than other models. Choose a model with over steering if you need to make lots of turns; either while clearing large open areas where you need to go back and forth many times or when removing snow from winding walkways.

  • For trouble-free cold starting, you might consider buying a model with electric start. It’s a great help, especially on those really cold days.
  • For more comfortable operation when the temperatures are really low, choose a snow thrower with heated handles.

    Husqvarna launches Apple Watch app for Husqvarna Automower®

    As the first producer of outdoor power products in the world, Husqvarna has launched an app for Apple Watch. With the Automower® Connect Apple Watch app you always have the status of your robotic mower at an arms reach – no matter where you are.

    Husqvarna Automower® Connect is a smartphone app that allows you to interact with your robotic mower from wherever you are. Now it’s time for the sequel. The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app makes it even easier and more enjoyable to own the Husqvarna Automower®.

    Key interactions 

    The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app contains the most essential functionalities of the smartphone app. It enables you to quickly start, park, stop and check the status of your robotic mower, right from your wrist. If you are in the supermarket and your daughter wants to let the dog out into the garden, she won’t have to wait until you get home. Simply stop the Automower® with a command from your Apple Watch. There’s also a glance feature, giving you access to the status of your mower with a simple swipe on the watch face.

    Andreas Källming, who has been part of developing the app, explains that designing for Apple Watch requires a whole new approach to interactions compared with when you design for smartphones and tablets.

    “The Apple Watch is not created for you to interact with for more than three or four seconds at a time. You should be able to take action quickly – and then get on with your day. It should liberate you from your smartphone, yet keep you informed and in control”, he says.  

    Your personal digital eco-system

    The market for wearable technology is growing and Andreas Källming sees a future where connected products such as cars, keys, means of identification – and now robotic mowers – will create personal digital eco-systems, that simplifies everyday life for the users.

    “We are always working to have a cutting edge approach to new technology and we continue to look for new ways to make it more fun and convenient to own and use our products”, Källming concludes.

    For a closer look at the watch, take a look at this video.

    The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app is available for Husqvarna Automower® models 320 and 330X. The robotic mower must be equipped with a SIM card. Talk to your dealer for information about pricing and installation.
