Question calling all Honda HS1132 owners

How many of you have trouble with the auger height adjustment peddle. I have to put my peddle to the highest position then put the shoes to just above the ground, then put the scrapper bar where is just misses the ground. the tracks are level with the ground. I can NOT use anything but the highest position, or it's more like a plow then a snowblower.
I have spoken with 2 dealers plus Honda national support. they have never heard of a problem with this machine. It's either the auger housing assembly is built too low to the ground, not allowing the machine to tip that far forward. Or the wheels that drive the track are too small in diameter, they need to be larger to raise the machine, which will allow the machine to tilt forward.

what is the general opinion of the owner on this forum.

If I get a chance to use the one that my church owns this winter, I'll see if I notice the same thing.

I know nothing about your height adjust pedal issue.
I dont want to hijack this thread, but...
Did you talk about the photos in your library showing the impeller and chute lining work in some thread that I missed?
Not stalking, really. just stumbled onto them.

11-32 here….no issues at all. Something is not setup correctly for sure. As you note... you should be able to use the auger heights in all positions. Take it to the dealer.

Mine seems to set the scraper level on the ground in the middle position, but if I put it in the "low" position I actually have to raise the machine up to get it to lock in and it leaves the tracks with the front aimed in the air and skids dragging hard. Only thing I could imagine it was for was going over crests or getting to the top of big banks to dig in...?

We have two different responses......one is fine, the other is having the same problem as I have. Why is that....My 1132TAS was purchased new in 2003...

Shredsled: What year was yours built.
sr71: what year was yours built.

I'm betting that Honda knows they screwed up and changed the front of the machine later in years...
