Husqvarna ST224P 2-Stage 24-Inch Power Steering Snowthrower

 

2-Stage Snow Throwers Removes Snow With Ease

Husqvarna Comes To The Rescue During Heavy Snow Storms

It’s winter time and you begin to see that white stuff falling down and you do not want to shovel after it stops. You have been doing this for years and now it’s time for a change. The Husqvarna ST224P 2-Stage 24-Inch Power Steering Snowthrower has just come to your rescue in removing the falling snow with ease.

The engine is packed with 208cc’s with sufficient power to clear a path 24-inches wide and up to a depth of 23 inches high. It has power steering which makes turning the machine easier. You can throw the snow from the chute up to 35 feet in a radius of 180 degrees.

To aid you in the clearing of the snow you have up to six (6) forward speeds and one (1) reverse. It also has heated hand grips to keep hands warm when clearing snow in sub-zero temperatures. If the snow should fall at night, there are built-in LED headlights to light your way through.

This unit comes with adjustable handles with four positions so you can use it comfortably. The controls are easy to use which provides better control of the unit.

Now, when old man winter should strike with a heavy storm, you are ready and your unit will out match old man winter with ease and comfort.

Note: Be sure to add some gasoline stabilizer into the gas before pouring it in the gas tank. This keeps the gasoline fresh for the entire winter and wont gum out the engine. Keep extra shear pins available for when the auger jams.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about this product.

  1. I just purchased this model and they put very little oil in the crank case. How do I know what engine oil they’ve put in so I can put in the same brand? Answer: The brand of engine oil is not as important as the oil weight you put in. I live in NY and the temp usually hovers in the 32° range when it snows, so I went with the Pennzoil 5w30 full synthetic. It is the same oil I use in my truck. All oils will mix with each other and are compatible, so the brand name is completely up to you.
  2. Does it have reverse? Answer: Yes. Plus 6 forward speeds plus one reverse.
  3. Does this blower have a throttle control? Answer: Yes but not at the area by the handles where one would expect it to be. It’s literally a stacked dial assembly with the choke on top of it both located on top of the engine by the exhaust heat shield. I removed the shield because it’s too close and it’s simply unnecessary being that close as hot as it gets. Not being able to adjust the throttle from the top mount control area kinda makes me wonder if the safety engineers got too much power on where stuff went on this thing.
  4. Is the chute made of metal or plastic? Answer: Metal.
  5.  How do you adjust the discharge shoot so that it all the way to the right or left. Answer: It sounds like the shoot was not aligned with the control lever correctly when it was assembled. This can be fixed by removing the nut holding the shoot down and adjusting the lever to the center position and pointing the shoot straight forward. Then tightening the nut back down. Please follow the assembly directions.
  6. Is the auger plastic or metal? Answer: Metal.
  7. Is this snowblower delivered to your home mostly assembled? Answer: Yes. All that needs to be done is the handle assembly needs to be bolted on (4 bolts), the control assembly for the shoot needs to be put in place and bolted on (2 nuts and 2 bolts) and three knob handles get slipped on. That’s it. 30 minutes at the most.
  8. Does this model have a throttle control? Answer: Yes but not at the area by the handles where one would expect it to be. It’s literally a stacked dial assembly with the choke on top of it both located on top of the engine by the exhaust heat shield. I removed the shield because it’s too close and it’s simply unnecessary being that close as hot as it gets. Not being able to adjust the throttle from the top mount control area kinda makes me wonder if the safety engineers got too much power on where stuff went on this thing.
  9. What size of tire chains fit this machine? Answer: Never needed it.
  10. Does this model have reverse? Answer: Yes, 6 forward and 1 reverse.
  11. I just bought it, they’ve put very little engine oil. How do I know what engine oil they’ve put in so as to ensure I put in the same brand?  Answer: The brand of engine oil is not as important as the oil weight you put in. I live in NY and the temp usually hovers in the 32° range when it snows, so I went with the Pennzoil 5w30 full synthetic. It is the same oil I use in my truck. All oils will mix with each other and are compatible, so the brand name is completely up to you.
  12. I just bought this snowblower on September 28, 2015, today Nov. 21, I took it out of the box. Put in fresh oil and gas. Why is the engine surging up and down? Answer: I believe it’s the governor that’s Not adjusted right. Contact a Husqvarna service and sales center.
  13. Does this model have power steering? Answer: Yes, the P in 224P signifies power steering. The regular 224 (with no P at the end) does not.
  14. Will this go through heavy snow and/or ice accumulation? Answer: I will say with a recent sleet/ice storm that it went through it tended to want to raise the front end but that’s a rare occasion you’d hit anything that heavy. It was moving a good 2-3 inches of ice accumulation (pellets and weighed as much if not more than wet snow) at the end of my driveway and still did well. I have not had an issue with the tires and movement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions concerning this product.

  1. Does this model have power steering? Answer: No. Only models that end in P do.
  2. Is the 5-year warranty still in effect for refurbished machines? Answer: No. Warranties on Husqvarna equipment is non-transferable. The five year warranty is only in effect for brand new, original owner.
  3. Is it self-propelled? Answer: Yes.
  4. What is the voltage required for an electric start? Answer: A standard  outlet is sufficient.
  5. Does it require any pushing at all, or does the self-propel do 100% of the work? Answer:
    The only pushing or pulling required is to turn the machine. The self propel does all the forward and reverse. If you want one with power steering all the models larger than this come with power steering as well.
  6. How far can this machine blow snow? Answer: I live in western NY, and last year we had our fair share of snow of all kinds. Wet and heavy, light powder, you name it we had it for months on end. The was my first winter with this blower and it worked great. Had no problems throwing all kinds of snow more than far enough. Had to watch that I didn’t throw it into my neighbors driveway that is over 50 feet away from mine. Even ice chunks and the wet snow was cleared easily.
  7. How long will a full tank of gas last in a large snowfall? Answer: My driveway and my neighbors driveway are around 1500 square feet each and I can do both around 3 times each on one tank.        
  8. How does this work on a steep driveway? Answer: It will do just fine, just keep the throttle turned down when going downhill so the engine does not turn the wheels too fast, when going uphill, you should not have any problem because there is enough weight on the machine from the engine and parts to give the wheels (which have great tread) the ability to maintain contact and not spin. It will do just fine, just keep the throttle turned down when going downhill so the engine does not turn the wheels too fast, when going uphill, you should not have any problem because there is enough weight on the machine from the engine and parts to give the wheels (which have great tread) the ability to maintain contact and not spin. you should not have any problems with steep driveways, as long as you are not turning the speed up as high as it goes, keep it low and slow on the throttle down, and then see what works going back up.
  9. How well do the heated grips work in extreme cold? Answer: Good enough to make a difference when it is cold, was a night and day difference from nothing. Worked well a 10 or 20 degrees.
  10. How hard is it to assemble? Answer: There is some assembly required. Just putting the handles up and connecting the snow shoot. Took me about 20 min and I’d say I’m an average handyman.        
  11. Do you have to mix oil and gas? Answer: No, there are separate compartments for each.
  12. Does the unit come with chains? Answer: No, you must purchase them separately.
  13. How are the headlights powered? Answer: From the engine. They power on only when the engine is running. There is no battery with this unit.
