CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, winter won't be quite the same. Or at least the effort of keeping it at a comfortable distance won't. Husqvarna says "bring on the snow" with an all-new single stage snow thrower and the extension of its product range to include two dual stage track drive models.

Husqvarna will introduce a newly developed single stage model that is a compact, powerful machine, ideal for the occasional user. For the demanding user, the new trac drive snow throwers are packed with power and feature an increased traction drive system. With an increased product range, Husqvarna is able to offer solutions for snow jobs of any size.
Keeping pathways and the area around the house snow-free can be quite tiring, even with some of the best residential snow throwers on the market today. That's why Husqvarna went back to the drawing board for a fresh start to plan a new single stage snow machine. The result? A device powerful enough to stand out from the competition that is packed with consumer demanded features. An electric starter that gets things moving instantly, a remote chute rotator that enables precision movement of the deflector by the operator (using just one hand) and clear LED lighting are features that make working in snowy conditions easier. The ergonomically engineered ST 121E has also been equipped with a rubber auger blade allowing it run smoothly on any surface without damage to the under body of the machine and adjustable handle height. And, once you're done, a flip of the 3-position quick release folding handle means you can store it easily in your garage.

The new Trac Series snow throwers have been engineered to handle even tougher winter challenges and terrain. Both models build on Husqvarna's existing dual stage machine systems and have been upgraded in a number of ways, the most visible one being the trac drive – an addition that enables the unit to cover more complex terrain, with even greater incline slopes, and still provide a firm and stable operator experience without sacrificing speed. Hydrostatic gear-free transmission ensures smooth movement, which works very well with the power steering used on all of Husqvarna's heavy duty snow throwers. Two handles let you maneuver each track separately; making 180 degree turns as easy as ever.
