It doesn’t snow enough or regularly when I live.

(I own one that has been a garage queen the last two winters)

That HSS1332 is an amazing machine! I really like the design. It has a sensor that stops the machine when there is a clog, instead of breaking a shear pin. Great engineering!

Won't be me talking you out of it either! Purchased mine in 2017 (replacing a 1987 HS80) and am VERY happy with it. If you get a new one now, you get to miss out on the little HSS teething issues we early adopters muddled through.

Only caveat I can really think about with Hondas if you are exceptionally tall. I'm 6'1" and wish the handlebars were adjustable or a tad higher. If I were 6'5" like my son, I'd really want the extensions that used to be sold by some guy in Colorado I think.

That guy lives about 5 miles from me in Cali and he's retired. He gave me the blue prints to build 6 inch extensions for the handle and chute controls.

I put them on a pdf file and they are on my FB group Honda Snowblower Enthusiasts free to the world of Honda owners. I'm not very computer savvy. if I can figure a way to post that here I would put it in a sticky on the Honda forum if the administrator here would let me.

Thanks you so much @orangputeh . I recall seeing these years ago but then he stopped selling the kits. I have a pretty well equipped metal shop so I was hoping some day to tackle this mod.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Woooo Hoooo.... :) You made my day.

you're welcome. have had several people make these from these plans and they said they were right on. good luck. I have had people want me to sell them but it's just too much trouble for me. Plus I'm only 5'5" tall so don't need them.

Well, you made me happy, so thanks. My winter project was a RC Lawnmower and now that it's done I'm looking for a summer project. This should fit the bill.

Need to get the ATD for extra options. 32 inches likes flat ground. Weighs 200-300 pounds and the bucket doesn’t bounce up when hitting a bump in the sidewalk. I started to keep the bucket adjustment lever pushed down. Odd angle between scraper blade and bucket. If you get a weird angle you can grab the bucket with the cement instead of the scraper bar taking the wear. $450 bucket. It makes you appreciate a smaller bucket and wheeled snowblower because of the versatility. Power of engine is great.
