Another Honda HS 50 chewed housing ??

Looks like another case of grinding down the auger housing
Not positive but it sure looks a bit thin on the leading edge of the side of the bucket.

$395 in MN

Honda Snow Blower



.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

They're almost designed to do that. You can't really blame it on negligence. The shoes are mounted in the rear, but if you have the bucket tipped ahead in scrape mode it makes direct contact with the pavement and that's the way it was designed.

94EG8,I would not nescessarily blame this type of wear to the design of the blower, there are plenty of tracked Honda and Yamaha blowers with rear mounted shoes that have the auger housing and augers in good shape, where users did not neglect the machine.
If you want to use it in scrape mode you have to adjust the scraper and skids accordingly (JMMHO).

Yup, I'm thinking on Honda or maybe any tracked machine it's something a salesperson should take the new owner to an old machine and say don't let it get like this !! Then just tell them the price of a new housing and problem solved. They might check the clearance more often than oil

Specially on a Honda HS where the auger housing and augers retail for well over $1500......!
