Why no air filters?

So this may be a dumb question but, why have I never seen a snowblower with an air filter?

My best guess is if snow gets on the filter it'll really suck, but what are the chances of that if it's in a decent housing?

the paper/foam would get clogged with water/snow and freeze up, causing the engine to choke itself and run rich or not run at all. also there is no dust

Hondas have one, no? Or is that just an empty filter housing?

Came with it, though it is not your normal snowblower.
It is a classic machine.

It is in here, https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...-snowbird.html
