Honda HS 1132 Used Value

What would you guys value this Honda at? Looks to be in good condition... but I have not seen it in person since its a few hour drive. Always wanted a Honda... but at over $2000 or more for a new one i just could not bring my self to do it. They are asking $1200 for this one. I do not have the serial number and do not know what year it is...

Is this a good buy or not? If not what would be a fair price?

Twelve hundred seems pretty optimistic for this time of year. I'd say more like $800-$850, is what I would price it at. It looks a few years old.

thanks for the feed back, he said its at least 3 years old but i think its more then that but maybe not much.

before you email i was thinking of offering $900 and seeing where that got me but maybe 800 is a better starting point.

Thanks again,

Anyone else have any feed back?

If you get the serial number, you can call honda and they will tell you the year of the machine.

Also since it is a tracked machine it will be a bit more difficult to move around especially when the engine is off. I like wheels and tracks are only better than wheels if you have a steep driveway or excessivly deep snow that averages more than 2 feet or so deep to blow. Also tracks cost much more than wheels to replace when they wear out or dryrot and crack from non use. If you driveway is relatively flat and paved then a tracked snowblower will offer no benifits over the same wheeled model.

Honda snowblowers don't have model years. They do have "version number" called K-codes. A K-code can be produced for many years, with no changes.

The HS1132 was built for many years with no changes. It was discontinued just a couple of years ago and replaced with the HS1332.

Anyway, if you can get the serial number, I can look it up and tell you the ballpark age of the machine, the original selling dealer location, (possible) first date of retails sale.

Most important, there was a Product Safety Recall on a limited number of these models for a leaking fuel joint back issued by Honda in December 2010. Only a certain serial number range were affected. If this unit is in the affected range and has not already been repaired, Honda will repair it free of charge.

The serial number will be in the form of SZBF-1234567 and located on the rear frame between the tracks:

Yes, in most cases.

With motorcycles, they also have model years, as that they are licensed, registered, taxed, etc. Power equipment products are usually not, so most snowblower manufacturers don't use model years.

The Honda K-code is like a version number. When a new model is introduced, is usually is assigned a K0 code. As running changes and improvements are made, the K-code bumps up, K1, K2, K3, etc.

Some Honda model stay at K0 for many years, while other models may change K-codes as often as twice a year.

Honda typically doesn't include the K-code in the model name in ad materials, websites, etc. to avoid confusion by customers, as it is unusual to have both a K0 and K1 version of a model in the distribution pipeline at the same time. Most dealers would be sure to sell off (usually discount) the K0 units before putting the K1 units out for sale.

For the most part, yes. There were a few other minor changes...the HS1132 had a single lever for throttle/choke while the HS1332 has separate levers. I think the HS1332 has an improved shear pin alignment design, improved muffler shield, improved engine emissions, and a few other minor changes. The basic frame, transmission, auger and other key parts are the same.

The engine for the HS1132 was made in Japan along with the rest of the snowblower, while the engine for the HS1332 is made in Thailand, then shipped to Japan, and then final assembly is completed there.
