Husqvarna ST330P

I purchased the machine today, had it delivered and like a kid on Christmas day HAD to play with my new machine.

Over the weekend we got dumped on by about 2 feet of the fluffy white stuff and since I was at work the wife shoveled as much as possible to make our stone driveway passable.
She will NO longer have to shovel...enter the SNOWBEAST!!!!!

I have been looking long and hard, and already own a Husqvarna riding mower which I love so I stayed with the same brand.

1. Started on the first pull
2. Hydrostatic drive for infinite speed control...LOVE this feature!
3. Chute adjustment and deflector controls directly from the handlebars.
4. Heated hand grips; have not tested them yet.
5. MOST Impressive was how this beast chewed through, spit out and THREW my 30 inch snow drifts.
6. NOT once did it clog or even bog down.
7. That thing went through and moved the fluffy stuff, the packed snow, the spots that had been shoveled and even the wet stuff that had a chance to start melting from yesterday.
8. I could NOT be more happy so far...granted it is only the machine's inaugural mission, but it blew my mind!!!!
9. Tires kept good traction and the trigger assisted steering mechanism made maneuvering this beast a snap.
10. Have not seen the headlight in action yet...stay tuned.

BONUS...it's orange; my favorite color.

Just this guy's $0.02 worth

LOL Ariens is orange too! But I have seen and heard good reviews on the ST330 and have similar levels of happiness. For the price difference of say a Honda - I think it's a good buy!

Looks like a sweet machine, I was looking to get that model or my Honda . Would've been a really tough decision if they had the st330 in stock

Congrats! Well written review, Husky's heavy duty series machines pack in a lot of features and good build quality. Best of luck with it.
