Honda designed and built the model HS720AM Snow Thrower for powerful, reliable performance in any snow conditions. The condition of the fuel is critical in the machine’s performance. Unfortunately, fuel can deteriorate in a short amount of time, which can corrode and damage engine parts. Also, the manufacturer’s limited warranty does not cover system damage and engine problems caused by substandard fuel. Thankfully, users can avoid problems and extend the life of their Honda Snow Thrower by following through with the manufacturer’s recommendations below. Continue reading
Summer is officially over, and winter is on it’s way across the United States, so it’s time to start thinking about your snowblower options. Snowblowers are capable of digging out a car, clearing a path out of the house, or preventing dangerous slips and falls after a storm.
Snow blowers commonly encounter obstructions while in use, such as rocks or children’s toys. When an auger impacts a solid object, significant stresses are imparted to the auger, the motor, the gearbox, and the blower. To prevent damage to these expensive components, snow blower manufacturers commonly use shear pins or shear bolts that are designed to fail above a certain stress threshold. This will permit the auger to spin freely, thus relieving the stresses on it and the driveline. Honda uses shear bolts in their snow blowers.
