2016 Husqvarna's on display at Lowe's

Did a double take on the way out of the store today upon seeing an ST227P and ST230P parked in the exit vestibule. They look pretty nice. Have they been using the Troy Bilt style plastic detent control panels for a long time or is this a new thing?

Sorry, Paul, can't answer your question. I just can't believe Husqvarna has 2016 models in stores when no other manufacturer (that I am aware of) has even announced their 2016 lineup.

I stand corrected, the 200 Series came out last year.

Great site with tons of info...

New 200 Series Husqvarna Snow Blowers – A Detailed Update | movingsnow.com

Funny thing is I frequent this store a lot and don't recall seeing any Husqvarna blowers there last year. Only T-B's

Maybe they've taken in leftovers from another store who knows.

ex-equipment I've owned that has either been retired/sold or handed down/up/sideways to family members. Deleted the "ex" to avoid confusion

Most likely Lowe's realized they were losing sales to HD from people who don't want entry level Troy-Bilt snow blowers. HD offered Arien's snow blowers at reasonable prices. I can't fathom Lowe's offering anything at a reasonable value price. Those Husky SB's look priced higher than HD's Arien's SB's. Plus knowing Lowe's I'm would not be surprised they cheapened the Husqvarna brand to meet their profit/price point. I worked at Lowe's for 10 years. From what I've seen my local hardware store sells Arien SB's for no more than HD does. I'd rather deal with them.

I won't buy a product from a company that displays there augers backwards. And, yes I just checked, still backwards......

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

The two machines in the photo at the top of this thread do not have backwards augers..they are mounted correctly..but there was a thread here recently about a Husquvarna snowblower that clearly had backwards augers..and the company insisted it was correct! I'll look for the thread..stay tuned..
