Overall, a great product
I've only had a chance to use this once so far, so the durability aspect has yet to be determined. However, this product is solidly built and had no trouble with the 10 or so inches of heavy wet snow that it was used on.
My only real gripe is trying to maneuver the blower is difficult on non-snowy surfaces. It would be nice if the wheels weren't locked together at all times, instead make them lock when the drive is engaged. This would make turning around much easier.
All in all, I would buy this again. It might cost a bit more than others on the market, but the quality will make up for that in the long run.

Great Snow Thrower
I , have had only one chance to this point to use this 924HV , I live in a heavy snow belt area & have owned other machienes , in comparison I would have to say the 924HV is most deffinately more of a thrower & I would most recomment the Husqvarna 924 , or larger if required for the application . GREAT product

Very Good Snow Thrower
I bought the Husqvarna 924HV a couple of months ago in preparation for winter and I got to use it for the first time today. What a powerful machine. It took me a little by surprise and I had a little trouble operating it at first, but once I got more familiar with the controls and how powerful it was it worked great.
The only negative issue that I had was with the Fuel On/Off knob. It keeps falling off when the machine is running. It doesn't look broken, and it stays in place when it is in the off position, but when I put it in the on position it just falls off. Very minor issue and I am very happy with the machine overall.

Ease of operation and starting
I cannot believe how easy this unit is to start, even the first time, simply follow the easy instructions, let it warm up on the choke setting and throw snow. The snow chute is easy to operate on the fly. The multiple gearing lets you travel and get in the show. Love it!

Let it Snow
No snow yet in Minnesota but my wife says "its a beast" just by looking at it. Solid construction. Controls seem friendly. Just waiting to unleash Big Orange........

Hard to turn
I bought this two stage to replace a 20 year old Honda that just died. With the mild winter I just now (in Feb) got to use it for the first time. It cleared the drive fine, but with a solid axle it's extremely difficult to turn 180 degrees on concrete, and the controls are very high. And I'm over 6 feet tall.
This machine has less than one hour on it, but it's got to go. If I want a workout like this machine gives I'll go to the gym.

Best Snow Blower!
My driveway would take 2 hours to shovel or 1 hour with my old snow blower and now it busts throught the snow and finishes the driveway in 25 minutes. I no longer mind when the town snow plow comes through and buries me in at end of the driveway. My Husqvarna busts through it in minutes! Highly recommend this show blower. This adds to my husqvarna set of a trimmer and a blower. my favorite outdoor equipment company!

Not very happy with this snowblower
I bought this snow thrower brand new. Used it once for 30 minutes. Will not start anymore. Having a hard time getting it serviced through warranty. Very disappointed.
