Questions & Answers


Do we need to empty fuel tank after winter if we use ethanol-free fuel? Thank you!

Asked by Dave February 17, 2021

Hi Dave, You absolutely should empty the gas tank during the off-season. While ethanol-free is more “power equipment friendly,” it will still deteriorate over the summer and can cause damage. Please follow proper storage procedures during the off-season– you’ll thank us in the fall! Storage procedures are here: https://youtu.be/0yqH_mvfwmA You can also see our full fuel recommendations here: https://powerequipment.honda.com/snowblowers/fuel-recommendations

How long would it run with full fuel tank before we need to refill?

Asked by Dave February 17, 2021

Hi Dave, This varies depending on conditions and how much snow is blown so, unfortunately, we cannot provide and approximate time before you will need to refill the fuel tank.

Can i use full synthetic oil

Asked by Hdright September 26, 2020

Please follow the owner's manual and use the recommended oil for general use SAE5W-30. Honda recommends API service category SJ or later oil. Click on the link below to see oil recommendations for the HS720AM found on page 12 in the owner's manual. https://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/00X31V10Y062.pdf

What is the Horsepower rating of this unit?

Asked by john February 10, 2020

I bought this unit and it works great. But, I also could not determine the HP from reading the owner's manual nor from labels on the unit itself. I replaced a similar Honda model I bought "20 years ago" with this one and it definitely has more HP.

If it's shipped to store, can I get my Veteran's discount?

Asked by Joe November 10, 2019

The Home Depot is a Honest store, They gave me my Veterans Discount. Thank You

Do you need to push the machine?

Asked by Chuck January 16, 2019


I want to purchase one for my son, is gas or electric better and why?? Thank You

Asked by cy404 November 30, 2018

Folks...There's an electric start option on some gas engine snow blower models. No.. that doesn't mean clearing snow with an electric cord attached. It means it's push button electric start when it's plugged in. Like cars today are turned on with an ignition key versus in the early years of 1920's when you had to actually be in front of your car with a crank tool to turn the engine over and start it.

What fuel mixture does the hs720 use

Asked by JayAre November 16, 2018

This unit uses straight unleaded gasoline.

Is this made in USA or from China?

Asked by Thach August 31, 2018

USA. The only thing I don't like is the handle for throwing the snow. It's to long.

what is the difference between a two stage and a single stage snow blower?

Asked by edi August 29, 2018

Behind the metal auger is another little propeller. Allows unit to handle large amounts of snow and ice

Wheels make this machine a two star.
The Honda snow thrower throws the snow fine, but you will be dragging it all over the place because once the wheels get frozen snow on them, they might just as well be square. Every time I've used it, regardless of the type of snow, the snow sticks to the wheels and make snow blowing miserable. Thing is, the snow sticks like ice and can't be just kicked off.

Response from American Honda TeamDec 30, 2020

Had to order this for store pick up. Easy peasy to assemble. Literally no big deal. Put oil in it and fired right up. I love this machine!!! I live in Detroit MI. We get a decent amount of snow. This machine is light and easy to use. No need for overkill two stage metal auger pricey units. This handles it. If its less then 12inches your good. Your wife, daughter or mother can use this no problem. Set the choke then one pull and your rolling. The rotating auger makes it fell like it's self propelled. Very light machine. Only con is it can't knock out the hard icy stuff at the end of the drive from the snow plow. My mother in law has owned the Honda h520 for 15yrs. Looks just like this one and it runs great!!! Only had to replace a $25 dollar carb for it one time. Did I mention I love this machine?!

Shipped early with great packaging. No damage to the box from what I could see. Filler it with oil and gas and after 3 days of use the auger seized up! Took it to Home Depot and the rental department verified the issue. I was issued a refund and I bought a toro as a replacement.

If you have a snow problem this wil fix it!
After the last major snow storm, that was it for me. I had to purchase a snow blower, my wife did the research and boy was she on point. The second storm came and the plowing was a breeze this time around, in no time I had cleared my entire driveway/walkway. This was a Great purchase.
