Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lyn This purchase was long overdue
This Honda snow blower worked like a charm.. Started on the first pull. And it has electric start for me. Went through 20 plus inches of snow like nothing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DominickDC Great Machine if your smart with it!
Bought this snowblower a day before the 30" snowfall and what a lifesaver it was. It doesn't have the huge opening others have but those always get clogged and you end up having to unblock it which is a pain. As long as you get out to clear 8 to 10" at a time this machine is great! Powerful engine and snow gets thrown far. Light and easy to maneuver. Only thing I would really improve is maybe slightly heavier duty wheels on this machine would make it really perfect. My neighbor recommended this machine to me and has had it for 10 years which is great. Just have to take care of it and maintain it and you'll have a great snow clearing machine for a long time!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shoveller Handles average snowfalls with ease
I previously owned a two stage snowblower. The Honda is much easier to handle and does fine with 5-6 inches of snow. If the snow is higher than 10 inches, or is densely packed, I found I needed to use a shovel to break the snow into more manageable chunks.
My only issue with the blower is that the wheels are small and sometimes get clogged and then don't turn easily. This was most apparent when I tried to use the blower to make paths in my yard for the dogs after the 2 foot plus storm we had recently. The uneven terrain kept the blower from doing much good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BadBob Best Single-Stage Snow Blower there is
I purchased this snow blower as a replacement for my Honda HS828 two-stage snow blower. I moved from Alaska to eastern Washington and no longer needed anything more than a single-stage snow blower.
Setting up the HS720AS was very easy. After adding engine oil and gasoline, the snow blower started on the first pull. All controls were easy to move and use. The first use of the snow blower was for clearing my patio of about 1 inch of wet snow and it did a great job. The snow blower is much easier to maneuver than my old two-stage blower.
I expect my HS720AS to last a long time just like my previous Honda snow blower, my Honda lawn mower, and my Honda generator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by engineman excellent product
The snowblower came in a box and it was packed very well. Remove from the box, put the handle in place-put the oil in the machine and checked the wire was on the spark plug. Put gas in the snowblower, plugged in the electric start, set the choke, turned on the gas and the key and hit the button on the electric start and it started right away. This machine is a pleasure to run and removes snow very well. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JMD Wouldn't buy from Home Depot
I liked the snowblower when it worked. It starts easy and throws the snow pretty good. The chute is hard to turn after you been using it a while. The problem is I bought the blower in early November and only had to use it three or four times before it blew a rod. Home Depot wouldn't't exchange it because it was two weeks pass the three months store warranty. I guest they they don't like to keep there customers happy. I know Lowe's would!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Great for most snow storms
Bought this fall of 2015. Works very well and have not had any mechanical issues. It came assembled and the auger engagement cabled had been pinched in the handle assembly. Fixed it and it works fine but mention it as assembly is obviously not checked well. As others have noted the wheels that come on this blower have an abnormal tendency to pack up with snow which creates multiple problems. 1st it can make the wheels out of round which causes uneven clearing amd ecessive wear on the auger, since the abnormal size changes the geometry of the machine. 2nd it can cause the wheels to lock which makes it very difficult to move properly. Other than that it works well and throws snow far as long as your not trying to clear snowplow wash out of the mouth of your driveway where a 2-stage machine would be better. I recommend this machine for all but the deepest of storms but recomend replacing the wheels with something less likely to accumulate snow.

Easy to use, cut through the wet packed snow with no problem. love the easy pull start, first time every time. Somewhat expensive but to me worth it.
