Husqvarna ST 111 136cc single stage snow blower is suitable for small areas like yards, alleys, and driveways and it can remove small layers of snow. It doesn't come with impressive features, which makes it less convenient, but the overall performance will satisfy you.
The worst part about winter is that you will have to remove the snow that will cover the surroundings, which can turn out to be an exhausting and time-consuming chore. But with the help of Husqvarna ST 111 136cc single stage snow blower, snow removal can become a child’s play thanks to the compact size that makes it easy to maneuver and the powerful auger that can handle layers of snow up to 8”. For $399, which is the price recommended by the manufacturer, this snow blower can get the effort out of snow removal, so you can give it a chance and see what it can do.
Husqvarna ST 111 136cc snow blower is a gas-powered machine that uses a 136 cc engine with 4.51 horsepower and a 7.1 lb-ft gross torque to power it and moves it along the area covered in snow. It features an efficient rubber auger which protects the surface underneath the snow, but this also means that you have to be careful not to use it on paved areas. The high speed of the auger makes the device almost self-driven, so you don’t have to push it too much. The single-stage system means that the auger catches the snow, crushes it and throws it out through the chute located on top of the snow blower. The chute is adjustable so you can choose in which way the snow blower will throw the snow.
What makes this snow blower very convenient is the compact design that ensures a smooth operating in layers of snow up to 8” high, so that you can use the machine without worrying about hurting your back or feeling pain in your arms once you are done. However, the fact that it features a recoil start, meaning you will have to pull a cord until the engine starts, makes it less convenient and could be an issue for those with less physical strength. The ergonomic handle with over mold bail arm makes the machine easy to push and it can be adjusted according to the height of the person who is using the snow blower. The 8-inch tires help it move easier and faster through the snow and contribute to the convenience and ease of use of the device. In order to make snow removal easier and to get the remaining snow out of your way, the chute on this model it adjustable so you can choose the direction of throwing the snow. Being a gas-powered snow blower, you will have to change filters and fill it with oil and gas, which adds to the costs and maintenance of the product. It is also less silent than the electric models, but if you prefer the power offered by the gas engine, you will overlook this aspect.
Considering that you have to lift it, carry it from the place where you store it and push it through the snow, a snow blower should be lightweight, compact, and easy to maneuver, otherwise, it will be hard to operate. The Husqvarna ST 111 136cc snow blower has a compact design that makes it easy to store and to handle without straining your muscles and it can be used by those who don’t have much strength. It’s made of a strong and durable plastic housing and it measures 31.2 x 22.8 x 25.8 inches and weighs only 95 pounds, being one of the smallest models, perfect for home use. It has a 21-inch clearing path that allows you to collect more snow so that the job will be done faster.
