Very Attractive And Powerful
Well it looks good. Took it out to play with it yesterday for practice (never used a snowblower in my life), even though I own a lawn care service in Cincinnati Ohio.

The ST244 is very heavy. It's hard to turn, I'm assuming with snow on the ground it'll make it easier. It's got 6 gears, nothing too hard to get used to. 6th gear can "GET IT" though. You're moving pretty good in 3rd gear. It only has 1-reverse gear unlike other blowers with 2. No problem, that reverse gear is good... more

Don't Buy A Husqvarna Product If You Expect A Rebate!
I recently purchased a snow blower that was advertised as having a $50.00 rebate in the form of a Visa card after my purchase, if you registered the product. I have registered my product more than once but never received the after registration email that is supposed to have a number in it that I need to properly apply for the rebate. Husqvarna doesn't list any contact numbers on their web site for help. Worst customer service I have ever been exposed to. Doesn't look like I'm going to get... more

Snow Monster
Very easy to set up. If you are DIY'er like myself, the instruction were plain enough. Bought also a universal cab over that fit well over the controls with no obstruction. This Monster cuts through the snow like butter. It is very well built and will last a long time if you take care of it.

I am very happy with this product and would recommend this to anyone living in North that doesn't want to spend 45 min or more cleaning off their driveway every time it snows 2 or more inches. One of... more

Throws Out The Heaviest Snow With Ease!
This is my 3rd machine in 30 years and its the first real one. No clogging or snow over the top of it due to being too small. It takes some practice to turn, but it will turn on a dime.

The 1 speed in reverse might be slow but its a good safety feature.When working in a tight space you could pin yourself against a post or a fence. Its just a great time saver and actually enjoyable to use.
Pros: High Quality, Price, Features, Durable
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use

Buy One For Residential Use!
It's a little early to write a review after just two large snowfalls, however, I will say overall that I'm happy with the ST224. It was easy to put together and starts on the first pull. I'm happy with its snow throwing capabilities, but the reverse gear is extremely slow making you want to move the machine manually, which is hard due to the machine's weight coupled with the fact you are normally on slippery, snow covered surfaces. The ST224 goes up the hill on my driveway quite well. If... more

Fantastic
This is my first snowblower, and I love it. Since I purchased it we have had two significant snow falls in my area and this machine cut right through it with ease. Wet and heavy snow is no problem.

If you're on the fence about the purchase, just do it. Your back will thank you for it.
Pros: Price, High Quality, Easy To Use, Fast

Want Power?
This machine will throw the snow as advertised. I did have carburetor problems when I first put gas in. Dripped gas all over the floor. Took the carb off and let the needle and seat clean it self out.

Must of had a piece of sand caught in there. Bye the way I highly recommend that all small engine use no ethanol gas to avoid carb problems in do time. Very Costly!

Having Trouble Since Day1
Hi, I bought this snow blower in October 2016. Since day 1 of snow blowing this isn't performing well. Sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't. The auger is not clogged in ice or carburetor is not flooded. Not sure what the issue is but it doesn't wanna start. Unfortunately there isn't a shop that I can take this for repairs in winnipeg. Very frustrating and will not go back to buy any Husqvarna products anymore. This ST224 is a garbage and collecting dust.
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Low Quality, Unreliable

Please take your machine to a service dealer for evaluation. Our locator shows there are no less than 7 authorized service dealers within 20km from the center of Winnipeg, CA with 6 of them being within Winnipeg itself.

Great Snowblower!
I had a chance to use my Husqvarna snowblower a couple of days after receiving it. I am very pleased with the performance of it. I didn't have a d trouble blowing several inches of snow...even the heavy wet snow.

I bought this product for the quality and reliability of Husqvarna products. I love the fact that it has lights for blowing snow in the dark AND the reverse gear. Love it! I am a woman in my 60's and I have no problem starting and operating it. I also love the color!
Pros: Price, Reliable, Features, Easy To Use

Snow Slayer!
Holy cow! This sucker is a snow eating machine! I had never imagined it would do as well as it has. I guess it has been many years since running my folks old craftsman snowblower but this thing is a beast.

The only "con" I could think of is that it is heavy - HOWEVER, once the shipping part was over, I like that it has heft to it. It does not allow the snow to push it around.

Have many Husqvarna products and am pleased with all of them!
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable, Exceeded Expectations
