Honda engines are generally very easy to start (my Honda lawnmower starts 1st or 2nd pull every time) do I really need the electric start feature? Do you guys use that?
Asked by: cas
I do not use the electric start, but the one I purchased has never started on the first pull. It usually takes at least 3-4 pulls before starting.

I was able to clean snow - heavy wet that was arrived through March 14 2017 blizzard. Glad I purchased this machine - when I am away from home even my 8 year old can use this snow blower to clear up driveway. I always suggest buy machine that family can use so that one is not dependent on Male family member. March 14 2017 blizzard dropped wet snow but this machine was able to manage this blizzard. This blower drops really far which is good. If snow is fluffy then machine can handle faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best , single stage snowblower !! You get what you pay for . 10 years ago I bought the older model of this , and its still running like a champ .. I also own a big Arron's for the heavy wet snow , that we get in Ct . The Honda does a better job , with snow less than 12 inches . It takes it down to bare asphalt , with no shoveling . All of Honda's equipment is on the pricy side , but they just run better , and last for years .. I now own a Honda generator , lawnmower , and snowblower .. The main issue with any outdoor power equipment , is leaving gas in it , when its not in use .. Read the directions for long term storage , and always use gas stabilizer .

I purchased this model based on the positive recommendation of Consumer Reports in January 2017. After owning a small electric show blower for the last decade, this more powerful gas snow blower is a dream. Easy to use. It works well in both wet and dry snow. The electric start is a big help in extremely cold weather during our Wisconsin winters. My only complaint is that the oil plug is in a very awkward position, requiring an elongated funnel to reach when adding oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thinking snow in July This is my second such Honda snow blower. The other one, which is now going on 13 years old is still running great and is kept at another property that I own. This one was purchased in addition to. The first blower that HD shipped to me got dropped during shipping and the scraper bar got bent. I returned it to the store, the return was made, and for the trouble HD discounted the replacement 10% no questions asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SINGLE STAGE SNOWBLOWER MADE First let me acknowledge that i am a Honda fan. I purchased the prior model to this one 15 years ago with the electric start though at that time it came with no crank chute controls but is basically the same specs and model as this one. I have never needed to use the electric start, it started on the first or second pull. It is easy to pull start (almost no resistance on the pull cord) because Honda incorporates a decompression valve that remains open until the engine first fires then closes quickly to provide subsequent cylinder compression for full operating power. My current Honda snowblower never needed major maintenance only oil change, spark plug cleaning etc. in 15 yrs and is still running strong. One might ask; then why are you replacing it? I'm not. The snowplow can't get to do my large drive (15 car) early enough to allow us to drive out granddaughter to school on time so I bought a second one so both my wife and I can cut a straight path to the road quickly. Prior to this Honda I had a massive two stage Craftsman with "tractor thread" traction power. What a mistake that was. The chute always got clogged and the tractor threads were worthless; better of with big rubber wheels. This Honda is more powerful and moves snow faster and throws it further than the two stage ever did! Keep in mind that this is a four stroke and has more torque that a two stroke that bogs down fast when the RPMs drop, not so with a 4 stroke. My older Honda can move deep snow 6-8 inches with no to very little bog down only in very wet and heavy snow and the two stages will also do the same. It has amazing torque! I think this new Honda will perform just as well (just bought it today). Some of the reviewer said that they bought it early in the season and had to wait for snow to check it out and by then it was out of the store warranty. You don't have to wait for snow, get the unit ready according to the manual, start it up, let the engine run for about half and hour then to simulate the full operation of the auger engage the auger handle for 10 min on and off for about another half hour all while the machine is standing still with the front raised with a 2x4 laid on the ground under it to keep the rubber auger paddle off the ground (no forward traction). If it passes this test you just checked out 90& of the unit's operation without snow! Now another word of caution. On all small engines either two stroke or four stroke USE PREMIUM GAS! The lower octane gas has ethanol alcohol in it with no protective additives in it and in short time will cause major problems. Also when storing the unit over the summer drain the gas tank and run the unit till the carb bowl is dry (has no gas, the unit stops running). If you store it with gas in the tank you have to use a gas stabilizer (un-stablized gas is only good for 2-3 months). The best stabilizer which most dealers recommend is made by SeaFoam. Getting back to this Honda little power house; it cost a little more but you save on maintenance, downtime and it's reliable; I know from experience. Big plus is I hear it's made in the USA unlike Toro (Mexico) and the Toro engines may be Chinese. So now I'll have two Honda's one for my wife and one for me as we work as a pair, oh by the way she has used the one I have and loves it; compact, lite wight, easy to maneuver and powerful! Another word of advise, buy from Home Depot stores not on-line, you will get to inspect for shipping damage prior to purchase. Two much of a risk of getting a returned unit with missing parts that may have be returned to the on-line warehouse only to be sent out to another customer that may not return it for various personal reasons. It's your choice pay a little more for quality or buy for lowest price and sacrifice reliability. Just my humble opinion.

When you push it through snow the wheel just sink in and bog down. You end up having to drag it backwards to where you need to snow blow. Clearing a small patch in the backyard for my dog is impossible. I am adding four wheels to the back to correct this problem ,
