Honda HS35 single stage auger question

I have a HS35 single stage blower. The thing is built like a tank and at the moment this is creating a huge PITA. I have used another HS35 and it seemed to propel itself along by possibly using the auger paddles to help move it along.

This one does not move itself along at all and I need to push this tank to move it around.

The auger blades are in decent shape - not super worn but not new either.

Thoughts on how to make this easier to push around? THANKS!

Hello,


I have a 2 stroke Toro single stage 6.5HP that I use for quick cleanup. I find that if I lift up on the handle slightly it engages the paddles with the ground and it helps propel the snowblower forward. Almost feels like it's self propelled then. Hope it helps.
