Great, quality machine....Husqvarna at its best...
This snow blower can handle the winter blues. Living in the state of Maine you need to have a machine that can handle 1-2 major snow storms a week. This machine can handle it with ease and enjoyment. The snow thrower can chuck this snow about 50-60 feet with no problem. A great buy and well worth the extra money for the extra bit of muscle and power.

Good quality snow thrower, minor issue...
This is a good product with the quality construction, metal chute, ease of assembly ect. I have only one issue in that; I can not seem to contact husqvarna. I ordered this off amazon.com, so there really is no dealer to talk to... My reason for needing to contact husqvarna is that I am missing the cable mount for the chute tilt control, it has the nut and bolt for it but no cable mount, it is not even in the parts list in the manual. That is my only complaint, otherwise like my lawn mower it is a quality product with durability where its needed, along with comfortable controls.

I used this machine through a winter of repeated, heavy snowfalls and it never disappointed me. It had as much power as I needed for quite a long driveway. Great on gas too.

snow blower hard to handle
This blower starts and runs good. But the performance is poor. First the speed contral has several small slots to shift into and its hard to get into the correct speed. Second the blower rides up and then hangs up on hard pack snow causing a hard to controll skipping motion. I have tried to adjust the shoes to prevent this but has not helped. I want to say that I use a simplicity at work and had had a 15 year old toro at the house both were superior to this machine.
