Husqvarna snow throwers

I'm looking for opinions on Husqvarna's snow throwers. Local hardware store has them advertized. Fair price,but i'm wondering if they are the "huskies" of old ,or some buyout company's basket cases.
Thanks

How much snow? What's your terrain? Do you need one-stage or two-stage?

For some buying info http://www.mysimon.com/Consumer-Reports-Snow-Throwers/4002-9375-6409253.html

For product recall on Husqvarna with Tecumseh engine go to http://www.consumeraffairs.com/recalls04/2006/tecumseh.html

AYP (electrolux/frigidaire) owns Husquvarna. They are the people who have made Husq mowers for years. They also make sears craftsman, and a few other brands. Husq products are generally decent quality and worth having. I don't know about their snowblowers though...we don't have snowblowers down here in the south. I can vouch for most of their other equipment though.

This is the first time iv'e seen them advertized up here in the Northeast.

I have a Toro now that i'm happy with Toro and will probably stay with Toro even though they are more money.

I remember Huskie being a pretty good product from years ago thats why i asked.
Thanks

My opinion is that the drive train is not the best on these units...design, strength and serviceability. For the same price range - if that's your range - I'd go with an MTD product. If your wallet allows, I'd go with either a Toro or Ariens...from a dealer.
