Honda Never Again

My HSS 928AATD has been nothing but a headache, this thing clogs when there is snow in the forecast. I did the chute and the jet

upgrade, Still a POS.


I watched my neighbor clean his walk with an older HS model and his machine went right thru it while choking on rev;s.


I was a Honda fan owning motorcycles, ATC's, generators and power washers. This machine is a huge let down.



And no it's not operator error, this isn't my first rodeo with snowblowers.


The only + on this thing is the electric start.


I can't wait to sell this paperweight!

Sorry to hear that. The HSS offer a lot of nice features, I think, like triggers steering. But having issues with actually blowing snow is obviously a pretty big drawback on a snowblower. Also curious about what you're looking at trying next.

Oh, I'll offer you 500 hundred shiny dollars for it

Good luck!

so that's why i see so many for a thousand off msrp on craigslist.

to be fair I have also heard the opposite from owners that put the new chute and bigger jet in carb but i'd be pissed off too if I spent nearly 3k for a machine and had to jump thru hoops to make it work as it should.

get a 1332.

Did you check the engine rpm as 3,600 rpm? Lower rpm can give poor results.

I recently bought a new HSS928ATD. I put the 92 jet in right away but have the old style chute. We donít normally have a lot of wet snows in February in northern IL but this year has been very different. We have got some of the wettest snows I have ever seen here. They would clog my Ford blower on the Kubota immediately.

I have been using the Dupont Teflon spray on the Honda and there has not been any snow build up or clogging after over an hour of blowing in these wet snows. You donít say where you live and maybe you get even wetter snows than we have been getting but you may want to try a can of the spray. You might also check your RPM if you have not done that. Mine is running around 3550.

I live in NJ, I have sprayed the chute with Fluid Film, silicone, PAM and it still clogs. I didn't try to up the RPM's I have no way of knowing what it's running at.


No clue what I'll replace it with, not going to be a 1332, that's for sure.
