Exclamation Like new (NOT) Honda HS928TAS

If you are near this area and/or looking at this, beware this is NOT like new, it has likely been repainted in some areas but the auger housing and augers are really ground down.....!

This is how a new unit looks like (compare it to the above picture and tell yourself how much wear is present)

OMG. The augers are worn smooth

OVERPOWERED is usually Adequate

It's crazy to me people can buy such an expensive machine and not change the skid plates when they get wore down?

Look at the bottom of the bucket it has like 1" ground off from dragging. And the auger teeth ground off all because they didnt change a $50 part.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Probably just the rear mount skids, the side mounts are optional.

several years ago I would have thought that this was a nice machine.
