    I would like to know if anyone has a Honda Snow Blower HS520C and what you think of it? I am a homeowner and would like to have one for my driveway and sidewalk, I am 62 and live in Northwest Ohio 30 miles West of Toledo. I don't want to spend a arm and leg for one. But I want a very good Snow Blower for my money.

    What other brands and Models do you recommend?: confused:

    Did I do something wrong, could it be "Honda," I was hoping that someone could help me here?

    I was told that Honda was the best on the market. I am really looking for a small snow blower to clean off my driveway and sidewalk. I also was told that the paddle ones are very nice cleaning all the snow off and you do not have to shovel any snow.

    I would really like to hear your comments on this and different makes. :help: :help: :help:

    There's nothing wrong with the Honda. You may find a Toro single stage just as good and not as expensive. I purchased my Toro 726 from the Andersons Mower Center in Maumee 3 years ago and like it very much. A Toro model similar to the Honda would be the CCR 2450 or the Power Clear 221. Check them out if you can, just to compare.

    I have one of those honda's with electric start which I dont need because it starts everytime. 87lbs 160cc 4 stroke,, it wont throw much over 10" of snow in a single shot
    so during a blizzard you need to break it up into 2 try's.
    wet snow Id go 3
