Rated 5 out of 5 by Home Depot and Honda to the Rescue! Our trusty ten year old snowblower finally bit the dust. Being a particularly brutal Chicago winter this year, we soon learned snow blowers were becoming increasingly hard to find in stock! But we decided to check out Home Depot online and are so glad we did. We purchased a Honda 20 inch Electric Start Snowblower, the Honda HS520AS.The electric start makes it so easy to start. The manual start is also much easier to use than other snow throwers we have had over the heart attack using this Honda! It is a surprisingly quiet snow thrower...our old one was always so loud! I highly recommend this snow thrower. The online shopping experience also comes highly recommended. The ease of checkout, the ability to communicate with online professionals made the entire experience a pleasure. Thank you Home Depot and Honda for coming to our rescue this snowy winter March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Snow Hawg!! This thing kicks butt!! I can throw 10"of heavy wet snow across the street and into my neighbors yard! Yeah it's spendy but it is totally worth it. Easy start, uses hardly any fuel, hawgs snow, and made me king of the neighbor hood! Love it so much I would buy this thing even if I lived in Vegas. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Snow Beast! Heck of a niced little unit. Assembled from the box quite easily even for someone with only a basic set of wrenches. Once assembled, oiled & fueled up it cleared the walkway simply and quickly without missing a beat. The auger works great and really chews up the snow. After the walk I threw some red food coloring on the driveway snow and then threw it into the front yard. We set the blower out front and jam'd a boot in the auger to look like the woodchipper scene from Fargo. This little show blower get's a lot of attention, fine runner! The chute is extremely easy to operate and you can blow the snow clear across the yard, on the neighbors dog or wherever you want to throw it! It really runs strong. They electric start is worth the extra money over the base model. Very nice little unit! January 10, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by average good machihe bad chute a better control system. January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic for a single stage snowblower I've had an HS520AS for about 10 years now. It is still running strong and has needed almost no maintenance. I did break a couple of the bolts that hold the handlebar in place. They are a special design, so I had to purchase those from the dealer. Other than that and basic maintenance, it's been problem free. I do plan to replace the rubber auger and scraper bar after this winter. But after 10 years, that's certainly to be expected. I would absolutely recommend this unit. It's a bit expensive, but well worth it!!! I attached a photo of my 5'3" daughter. Note the snow bank behind her. It is becoming a challenge to get the HS520AS to pile more snow on top of the snow back, but you have to admit... it's done a great job this winter. One last thing I almost forgot about. It ALWAYS has started on the first or second pull in the fall. I have NEVER actually used the electric start. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't buy the electric start AS model. You really don't need it. February 8, 2014
