The little HSS724 that could

93 cms of snow in less than 24 hrs. The little HSS724 handled it like a champ! I did the rejet a few weeks ago and set the WOT RPM to 3800. A totally different machine!

That's just a typical Honda for you. Maybe that's why they cost a little more, but they get the job done, and 20 years old isn't old for a Honda.
The Older the Better with the Honda snowblowers and the rest of their power equipment.

Thats Awesome! I have the same machine, happy to see her handle the big stuff.

I did the rejet too. What did you end up putting in there?

I have not messed with RMP, you recommend?

Garage
I have an old 80 that can do that. couple winters ago we had a storm like that and a neighbor asked me to blow a path for his dogs in back yard. I not only did the path but cleared the deck and made a path from the back to front yard and di his driveway it was so much fun.

he could not believe it was almost a 30 year old honda ( he has an old ariens with wheels )

afterwards he wanted to buy it but i told him no way. and this was before I installed impeller kit.

I installed a #78 jet and it has worked really well for me.

RPMís @ WOT with no load on the engine should be ~ 3800 RPM.

So how do the road crews clear that? Payloader scoop into trucks or big blower into trucks or???

Can't imagine the man hours into a project like that...

In the down town areas they blow it into trucks and truck it away and in some areas they blow it onto the lawns.the street I live on is still only opened enough for 1 vehicle when they made a pass with the loader the guy would have to back up and take runs at the snow

Geez, that is nuts! Glad the machine soldiered through for you. I can't imagine trying to clear that by hand!! Is it dry, fluffy snow, or dense and heavy?

I'd love even an older Honda, but I have to admit that HSS-style triggers steering sounds pretty nice, from a usability standpoint. I've gotten spoiled by the easy turning on my current machine with a differential. It'll be quite a while before the HSS lineup drops down to a price range I can justify, unfortunately.
