I can't even begin to explain how powerful and awesome this machine is. Living in New England, we get hammered with snow -- particularly this January (2015). This Husqvarna snowblower plowed through the most vicious snowbanks like a hot knife through butter. The shoot has yet to clog, and I've yet to be disappointed. It starts every time, and I can zip through my driveway, sidewalks, and mazes for my dogs in a jiffy.My neighbors are in 'awe' when they see me carve-out paths in a fraction of the time that it takes them with their less reliable, powerful snow throwers. One guy came up to me last week and asked what kind I bought, and said 'I saw you plowing through this it was nothing'.I paid about $900 at Lowes for this. Worth every penny. I'm so glad I didn't opt for anything less, otherwise I know my snow removal duties would be taking me at least twice as long.

Paid 799.,which seemed great price. Looks well made. Used it 5 times and stopped throwing snow.Brought it back to dealer. He stated it needed a new belt.Also,off the cuff remark about a design problem that might eat belts up in future.Not getting proper alignment for tension,something like that. Repaired for free(only 2 months old. Used it today, 4 inches of snow. Auger spins constantly now and wobbles,makes a noise like it is out of round. Going back with it n a few weeks. Would like to see if I can get a refund of some sort and apply it to a Ariens. Neighbor let me use his when I didn't have a machine. It was a 27inch,7 years old.What a machine,power and way more substancial than the Husky.

Used it six times I kept the oil at the mark but the engine seized month after warranty.

About Me Do-It-Yourself
Owned the ST 224 for 3 years, considered it to be average quality. Preparing it for this winter's use however I discovered a major deficiency. The plastic control panel is not strong enough to withstand force exerted upon it by the speed selector lever. With my machine parts of the panel broke off causing the speed selector cable to become displaced. As a result, when either of the first two forward speeds were selected machine moved in reverse. Damage occurred sometime during the offseason when the machine was not even being used. Sent a letter to Husqvarna, found problem was already known. Email response I received on 12/13/17: We have received your letter. I apologize for the frustration incurred by the console breaking but appreciate your feedback.This is an issue we have actually corrected with the consoles more than a year ago. We did see an abnormal number of breakages, so the part was revamped and failed ones were replaced under warranty.I will submit a check request to reimburse you the $53.50, and if you like, will also gladly ship you out the new console. The check will take approximately 2-4 weeks to arrive to you.Sincerely,******* *******Consumer Support Supervisor I had repaired my machine myself since I did not want to haul it to the nearest "authorized Husqvarna servicing center". Also had strong doubts that repair would be covered under warranty anyway. Husqvarna website boldly proclaims a "5 year warranty" but owner's manual indicates otherwise. Waited 4 weeks never received the promised check or the "revamped" console. Does the "revamped" console solve the problem? Maybe, but I cannot say for sure that it actually exists. When I ordered the replacement for my machine, using the latest part number, part I received was exactly the same as one that broke, and, as I said, never received the supposedly "revamped" part that was offered.

Never Another Husqvarna Prduct in My Lifetime
By Big MIKE From PA
from SW PA
Same problem with my blower, Keeps blowing the belt off. Never had this problem with the Areins I bought in 1996. Moved to NC in 2006 and sold it to the old guy that lived next store. Guess what? He still has it and its going Strong. Know what I did, Sold husqvarna and got another Ariens. Their Great! Their MOWERS are just as bad. But that's another story.
No control of lights, heated handles?

Nothing in literature lets me know how to turn on and off the dual headlights. Likewise, not a word about how to turn on or off the headed handles although both of these are advertised features. Sad the manufacturer offers no support for these features they advertise as selling points.

I would NEVER BUY this one at all
from Snake River , Idaho
The product is poorly made ....... NO replacement parts when it breaks down...... it broke down within the first two weeks of operation. The cables that move the transmission are bare and break easily ....AND the parts are not available to repair ???? NOT what I expected from this company and its reputation ......STAY AWAY
Great small machine
ST224 is more than adequate. It handles light snow almost too well. The first time I used it it threw powdery snow completely across my 40 foot lawn and out to the street. I just cleared 4" of slush off my driveway, and it threw it 20 feet with no clogging. It is a heavy machine, so some people might have difficulty handling it. I still haven't gotten the heated handgrips to work, but that's not a deal breaker.All in all, I'm very happy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this product again. High Reliability
from Stamford, CT
I bought this in November 2014 and have used it about 15 times including this past weekend (7Jan2017). Over that time, I have broken two shears bolts after the auger picked up something that would have killed the blower. Replacing tghe shear bolts takes no more than 5 minutes. This is a beauty of a product. Glad I did the research and went with a HUSQVARNA product.
Dewey's review from Minnesota
from Anoka, MN
I think Husqvarna missed the mark on some of the features of this ST224 snowthrower. Below I list the pros and cons of my experience using this snowthrower after 8 snowthrowing opportunities.PROS:Great dash controls. Includes deflector rotation and snow deflection height.24 inch is a perfect sizeLove the adjustable handleLight weight for easy maneuveringGreat blowing power and distanceLCT engine works great. Easy starting both from starting cord and electric start.LED head lights work goodGood forward drive speedsCONS:Most snowthrowers I previous used had the auger lever on the left handle and the drive lever on the right handle. This snowthrower is the opposite.R1 reverse is way too slow. It should include a faster R2 speed option. I usually end up pulling it backwards.Hand warmers are worthless. Hand warmers should get hot, these don't even get luke warm (tested with my bare hands). I checked for a disconnected wire and found all connections were good. I measured the AC voltage to each hand warmer and measured 12.59-12.67 amps which should be good.Deflection chute should rotate more than 180 degrees total (past 90 degrees in both directions). When I get to the end of the driveway, the snow is thrown into the street and not back into my yard.
