Great machine!. Was compairing tons of snowblowers over the last couple days. For the price and quality i went with this one (Model No: 14527SB-LS)Husqvarna. I was tempted to buy a Honda, but after reading up on the Husqvarna i decided to buy it.
(used it for the first snowfall today, ate through 45cm and threw it like nothing was there.

awsome features, easy to use (show the wife how :p ) built tough, has hand warmers, light,and other good features. easy to start
I just bought this blower two wks ago. No snow yet, so I can only give my impressions on the visuals. The dealer offered three different series of Husqvarna blowers. The homeowner series is a lightweight 2 stage. Mine is the Landowner series, which is definately more robust. Their top of the line professional series is beyond my needs.

I like the power steering feature, B&S OHV engine,chute controls, heavy duty augers, heated grips, light.
So far nothing. I wish there was more discussions about these in the forums, since I based my purchase soley on what I have seen and read about OTHER machines.
