Coming from a reputable manufacturer is Honda HS720ASA snow blower as good as we expect?
Overall Honda HS720ASA performs well. It clears light snow effortlessly and does not struggle even a bit in feet of fluffy snow. Handles wet snow pretty well too but chute can get clogged at times. It will more or less struggle with snow plow pile at the end of driveway though.
It throws snow well too but it won’t throw it as far if there is very little of it (like 2 inches).
Honda HS720ASA has 120-Volt electric start but it starts on first pull so most will never actually use it.
Honda HS720ASA has remote chute/deflector controls.It’s not feature rich though and doesn’t have headlights or hand warmers. Chute rotates 204 degrees. Auger is made of rubber.
Since it has 4-stroke engine you don’t have to mix oil with gas. It’s shipped without oil so don’t forget to add appropriate amount. Honda recommends using 5W-30 oil.
Fuel tank capacity is 0.29 gallons.
Honda HS720ASA isn’t self propelled. It’s easy to push though and not that hard to maneuver for the most part. HS720ASA has plastic wheels with not so good tread meaning snow can get stuck in tread reducing grip.
