New Husqvarna Snowblower
Original Message   Dec 3, 2005 12:15 pm
   I just picked up a new Husqvarna 10527SBE, wanted to get the Ariens 926LE but everyone ran out of them. Looked at the Toro but was over my budget for the features I wanted. I liked my older Areins but it just didnt have the power for the heavier storms and the EOD. Also my drive is single wide 85'+ long, and due to an adjasent drive I have to double blow the snow for about 35 ft. I liked the power steer, and remote hood deflection feature on yhe Husky. Does anyone have this machine and if so has it lived up to your expectations? Im hoping for some snow in the next couple of days to try it out.

I just purchased a 10530SBE and so far so good. The only problem is with the chute adjuster (left to right). The lever is EXTREMELY hard to move. I checked all the mechanical mounting points and they seem to be free. I suspect the cable is the issue. Has anyone experienced this problem and if so what is the solution to fix it?


Hi tgregoire,

Had the same problem last year on my 10-30. return it to dealer for carb ajust. and he reroute the cable ...much easier play on the lever. Also wath that there is no water in a cable that goes down and up. When it is very cold the water freese and the cable jam. Good luck .

Paid  $2000 canadian for that thing and i am deceive ,bucket is not aligning with the rest and it pull on the left.dealer says there is nothing he can do I am gone to sell it and by a blower that fit on my Polaris

Ciao

Also make small cut on the cable black sheat as it goes down so water will drip from these opennings.That cable is way too long but what can you do.it is made that way.

Good luck

                  I am in Canada.    We have a different line of Craftsman snowblowers than are sold in the USA.     Our higher price models are built by Husqvarna, and offer all of the same featuresas the husq models but are red instead of orange.

I have the Husq built Craftman 52993 , 27 inch, 305  14.5 torque Briggs and Stratton, Hydrostatic drive (built by Hydro Gear)  It has trigger type power steering,  heated grips.  , the discharge shute is operated by a short travel lever and the chute deflector is operated by another short travel lever on the console panel. The hydrostatic is operated by a single lever, with no clutching.  It is variable speed,  move the lever forward   to go forward , move it back to  backup, the further you move the hydro lever forward, the faster is your ground speed. Same with reverse. You can shift directly from forward to reverse  without stopping .Torque is the same at all speeds.  The torque multiplication is over 20-1 . You can travel much slower (creeper speed) than any friction drive snowblower.  so you do not stop moving forward , no matter how deep the snow is.

I have had  this  machine for only a month , but we have had 4 big storms, over 50 cm (20 inches)  for one storm and over 30 cm (12 inches) for the others.  My  machine has worked very well,  My neighbours all have similar size snowblowers , John Deere, Toro, MTD, and an older Murray built Craftsman, They are 26-28 inch,     11.5 -14.5 torque and 11.0 to 11.5 horsepower.  Where the snow plow pushes the snow into the end of the driveway is always the hardest . It can be up to 4 feet deep,  My hydro equipped machine will go through it without stopping at a creep speed. , the engine speed doesn't change and its sound does not change. The other snow blowers will not go directly through this heavy packed snow. The operators have to back up , make several tries at it, pushing their machine and  wiggling them to get through , their engines lugging down and making a lot of noise. 

  I am answering an old post,  but it is still snowing.

YIKES - This thread is so old, Husqvarna does not even make the 10527SBE any longer and one of the original posters died almost 3 years ago!!!

It's quite ironic, actually.  There was no way DavidNJ could be convinced to see the benefits of hydrostatic transmission.  This person is the exact opposite.

Royster,


    You seem to be a smart guy.  Can you go over in detail the advantages of the hydro and explain it's operation?   What are the bad points of a friction disk system?  What's the money breakpoint advantage of one over another?
