Customer Reviews

Summary Seventy six percent of customers rated this snow blower a 4 or 5 out of 5. The remaining rated the snow blower 3 or less. Customers wrote that as long as you are patient, this snow blower will easily move lots of snow. It works best with 8 inches of snow or less. However it will also handle more than that if you take your time.  Some customers found that because the snow blower is so light, it rides up over the snow. It also stops when the snow is hard packed. Compared to a heavier gas power model it just did not have the power or the weight to handle all kinds of snow conditions.

Customer Review Summary

At the time of preparing this review there were 44 reviews with only 52% of the reviews rating a 4 or better out of 5. 32% of the reviews awarded a 1 rating for this Husqvarna ST230P – 30-Inch 291cc Two Stage Electric Start snow blower.

There appears to be a big problem with the auger belt. It does not last and many customers had to replace it after only a few hours of use. Some returned the snow blower to the store where they made their purchase. Other consumers attempted to replace the belt, which can be done by anyone who is familiar with working around small engines. Belts should last years and not hours. This is a major issue for this model. One customer reported that the belt ran 20 minutes before shredding.

A symptom of belt failure is that the auger tends to push the snow rather than grind it up and throw it out the chute. Basically the belt begins to slip, the auger slows down and the snow builds up in front of the machine as you move forward. Some consumers felt that the machine was cheaply made.
