Exclamation HS928 'in excellent condition'

I wonder how surprised the buyer will be when trying to use it... and it would just push snow to the sides.....
It's also missing the transmission support bracket (wonder why...?)
Auger serrations seem partially ground down and tires are not the best type....

Ha ha. Nice catch on the swapped augers. The new owner is sure going to be disappointed as snow just gets pushed off to the sides of the bucket.
What would be a reason for replacing tires on a HS of this vintage? Were the originals "worn out"?

I'd say two possibilities: wear or leaks.

I've also noticed that on older Honda or Yamaha snowblower tires if you set the pressure too high (spec is 8-10psi) they will distort badly. I have a wheeled HS828 with a tube in it, I added some air to it as it was flat, my digital pressure tester gauge won't register pressure until 7-8psi, and it won't read any pressure when I was done, so I thought it was good, next day I went to move the blower and found out that the tire had popped off the wheel on both beads (missing retaining rings) .
Once they distort, there is no going back to save them, they're done.
They are made out a softer material for better grip is my guess and they are also very expensive.

Unfortunately you see a lot of wheel Honda blowers with over-inflated tires (which unfortunately translates to damaged tires )

I would tell him about his augers but he says do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers
