Best deal you might see all year on a Honda HS928 -- Denver -- $500.00

Heavy Duty Snow Blower


Will be gone by this evening I would think.
I'm out of town, otherwise it would already be in my garage.
No time to post pics, but I did save them to my computer.


Update... I'm not really out of town, but it's quicker to just say that rather than explain my situation at home... taking care of my elderly mother who is in the final stages of alzheimer's.
I usually have to pass on these good deals, but the seller has agreed to hold it for me due to my situation.
I should be able find a neighbor to watch my mother on Monday and take it home if everything checks out ok.

Garage
It's 8pm central and the ad is still up. I'm amazed !! I would love to be close enough to grab that for 500.

Good for you russkat.

Looks pretty nice and the price is great. I live in Denver, but I prefer the wheeled version.

Hope you get it on Monday.

They seem like "good people", I agree.
They even gave me 2 weeks to get my affairs in order.

I've done the same for a few buyers myself as well.

It's in my garage now !

Everything is in great working order...
It tracks dead straight, does not pull to either side.
Deflector lubricated and works flawlessly.
Augers in great shape, spin freely when shear pins removed.
Skids look new.
Scraper bar shows little wear.
Crawlers (tracks) are new, only a couple of hours at most on them since they were replaced.
Electric starter works perfect, not that you need one since a weak pull starts it 1st time.
The seller was the original owner, bought it new in 2002.
Never used on a gravel drive.
Paid just a little under 500 for it, I think I did pretty good.

I'll sell 2-3 other blowers I acquired in the past month once the snow starts to fly.
The profit I'll make on those will more than pay for this one.

I might keep the HS55 or the Snapper 1030 as a backup, not sure yet.

I'll post some pics in a new thread and link to it in a few days.
