With this two-stage snow blower, it has a 24 inch clearing width and a 23 inch intake height. This means that it is perfect if you live in a region that frequently experiences snow fall over 8 inches. Also, since this is self-propelled, you aren’t going to be struggling over to maneuver the machine over any inclines or hills your property may have.

The snow blower uses an auger that will collect the snow, and the impeller throws the snow out and away—up to 35 feet!

Although this is a gas powered snow blower, it does have an electric start. To start the blower, just press a button and the installed 120 volt AC electric start will kick on. As with any large machine, always make sure you consult the owner’s manual for proper use.

What People Had To Say

When looking at what people had to say about the Husqvarna 24” 208cc Two Stage Electric Snow Blower, many people had positive things to say. People were impressed how quickly they were able to remove snow, even heavy, wet snow that was 6 inches deep.

They were also impressed that with one pass, the snow blower was able to get down to the pavement, making the entire snow removal process so much quicker.

Customers did mention that although there weren’t any written instructions on how to assemble the snow blower (there is some assembly required), the diagrams were clear and easy to follow.

Other people report that as senior citizens, they were able to remove their snow with no problem, thanks to the fact that this is self-propelled and it is an electric start machine.

As much as we’d like to say there weren’t any complaints lodged against this machine, that would be wrong. There were some people who didn’t care for the machine.

The most common complaint was that the thrust wasn’t powerful enough and they had to push the machine because the self-propulsion wasn’t functional. This was still a problem after the customers would clean out the chute with the tool that came with the snow blower.

Another common complaint people had was that if you happen to run over a rock (which is not recommended, but sometimes is unavoidable), the snow blower would stall, buck around, making it difficult to manage. Customers also mention that if they did run over a rock, the impeller would bend and even break.

A few people stated that the control cables on their machine broke after a few months because “it was too cold” outside.

Our Recommendation

If you live in a region where winters are unpredictable and sometimes brutal, then you’re not going to want keep shoveling the snow by hand—especially as you get older.

That is why you aren’t going to want to fuss around with a hard to use snow blower, you’re going to want a self-propelled unit with an electric start and is capable of getting to the pavement in one pass. That machine is the Husqvarna 24” 208cc Two Stage Electric Snow Blower.

We like this snow blower, especially for those who often experience heavy snowfall, because it is a two-stage unit that makes short work of snow removal. The snow blower can shoot the snow out and away from your walkways up to 35 feet, ensuring that you can clear path without large snow piles.

We also appreciate that this snow blower has an adjustable handle with a heated warm grip. It may not seem like a feature to ooh and aah over, but when your hands are cold from being outside for a while, you’ll appreciate that little bit of warmth.

Also, the snow blower is equipped with useful features like 15 inch X-trac heavy-tread tires to give you a little extra traction in slippery conditions, but it also has LED headlights to help you see where you’re clearing in the dark or when visibility is less than ideal.

Instead of paying someone to shovel your snow, or doing it yourself this year, we fully recommend making an investment and purchasing this snow blower. For those who live in the north—something like this is a must have!
