Unhappy Brand new honda hssa928td snow blower

Hello Pros,

I just got a brand new Honda Snowblower and used it last night for the first time. We got 5-6" of snow and it had an issue lagging/stalling under load. I can't figure it out! Everything was correct, that I knew of but when I got to like 4-5" of slushy snow at the edge of my driveway it would bog and almost shut off?? Please help. I spoke to Honda and the dealer and they said it shouldn't do that, not with this one! Thank you, Angelo

Just upjet it to #92 and increase the RPM, otherwise the dealer isnt/cant do anything to help the sluggishness.

Did you go real slow at the thick slushy part? This stuff usually will not throw well, at least you didn't break any shear pins. Did it throw the normal density snow fairly far? Remember to post your solution when you arrive at one. This may helps future readers out.

If the conditions are right then these machines will clog even with 2~3" of snow. Its usually the heavy/wet stuff that gives them issues especially the GX270 powered HSS928s.

Thank you and Happy New Year all for the responses and very sorry for the late check in. I never got the update emails!! My Honda does great with regular fluffy snow, yes. I did break a shear bolt on the slushy stuff. I will keep on eye on what I am doing to make sure the adjustments are where they need to be. It does loo like Honda did revise the chute design a bit more to open up the opening on the new model I have but still clogs due to the flat platform edge at the bottom of the chute. It is too wide which allows the snow to build up . If they decrease that ledge it should work better.

This is one of the reasons I went with the rapidtrak over the Honda but there are things you can do to remedy clogging, re-jet your carb, increase rpm's, install an impellar kit, lots of guys have done this to their machines with great results!
Honda makes the best small engine in the buisiness (IMO) and once you do the mods, you'll have a great machine that should outlast you!
Best of luck, keep us posted.
