JONSERED By Husky

I stumbled on this at my local Costco seems like a pretty solid deal for $700. USD. A 24” machine with a 305cc Briggs engine, 23” intake height, headlight, one handed chute control, steel chute, a 3 year machine and a 5 year gearbox warranty. Tires are 13”, Images on Costco website and the photo on the box that this machine is sold in show power steering levers, however machine does not have them.

the rest of the specs for the money are stellar
for someone who isnt comphy buying a better quality used blower for that money thats a useable blower with that engine

Haven't heard much about Jonsered snowblowers, but the 305cc motor and Costco return policy makes this really tempting. I just wish it had auto turn. Tough choice... debating between this, Toro 826 OXE, or Ariens 24 Deluxe...

Can't say much about the Jonsered other than my old chainsaw is a monster. The Toro 826 has auto steering and with both the Toro and the Ariens you'll likely be so happy that returning it won't be an issue.

At $700 it's a nice buy. This model is made by Husqvarna and is quite interesting. The front panel with the light is like mine and it's similar to the current 300 series. The control panel is very much like the current 200 series Husqvarna. At 7 bills it comes in hundreds less than the Toro or Ariens you mentioned. My 924HVX has 16" wheels but only has 205cc. The 205cc has always done the job for me. I've had the bucket filled to the 21" height with medium weight snow and it's had no problem. I can't throw that much snow 50+ feet but then I don't have to. I live on a Cul-de-Sac and get some monster EOD piles that are handled by taking less than a full bucket. It works for me and is better than using a shovel. Here is a Costco video on assembly. To get to the video click on the "View More Details" and just scroll down to the video at the bottom of the page. www.costco.com/Jonsered-24"-305cc-2-Stage-Snow-Thrower.product.100427210.html

If you live in an area with moderate to heavy snows, and have a big area to clean then the Toro or Ariens will be worth the extra coin. If you live in an area with light to moderate snow, where a very heavy snow is out of the ordinary I could see this machine lasting 15+ years if maintained properly.

cl 28 sho is the right move imo
the jones boy will have no resale valve the 28 sho will always be worth between 500 and 700

Maybe in your neck of the woods it would be scrap metal but farther west to around here every time a two stage snowblower is listed in an estate sale it's one of the first things gone. No matter the brand, condition, or price. Gone, gone gone.... Although that's not a bad thing, then I'm not tempeted, lol.

there are levers on both sides of the handle, so it seems it does have some sort of clutch style steering mech.
from costco, for that price and youre looking for a new blower u really got nothing to lose. if it doesnt perform u can always return it, but i really cant see it not doing well.
it has most things i would want in a blower

in canada this is costcos best offering $850 +tx , YARDMAX 61 cm (24 in.) Dual-stage 7.0 HP 208 cc Gas Snow Blower w/out all the extras offered by the jonsered
