So ho well does Husqvarna ST224P perform? In two words – very well.
It cuts through 20 inches of regular, light snow like it was butter and throws it far as well (up to 30 feet).
Wet, slushy snow is more of a challenge but it deals with it pretty well too – you might have to go slower at it but Husqvarna ST224P will do the job. It doesn’t clog and throws slush well to although not as far as regular snow.
This unit should be able to handle pretty much any type of snow you could expect without any serious issues.
Husqvarna ST224P is very easy to start – after priming it almost always start with first pull. It also has electric start that works flawlessly.
Husqvarna ST224P should come with oil already inside the engine but you should definitely check oil level before starting it up as there have been instances where oil level has been below minimum threshold.
Husqvarna ST224P is pretty feature rich. It has power steering, LED headlights (really helpful in dark time), remote chute direction and remote deflector and heated grip handles (however you might not be able to feel heat through gloves).
It also has 12-inch ribbon augers, friction disc transmission, aluminum gearbox, extended oil drain plug (makes changing oil easier), extended oil fill tube, idle down knob, 15-inch tires and 2.7 liter fuel tank.
Another cool feature that you don’t see often is adjustable handles.
In the control panel you will find switch to turn on/off grip handle heating as well three levers: drive speed control lever, discharge chute control lever and deflector remote control lever.
Left handle has traction drive control lever and left turn trigger. Right handle has auger control lever and right turn trigger.
