    I'm a new owner of a *used* Honda 520AS snowblower. The price on it was something I could not pass up & it starts fine on the first pull :)

    Other than a oil change and possibly spark plug, any other maintence tips you can offer ? The unit was only used for about 20X over the course of 3 years from a guy who owned a snowplowing business and was parting with his machines.
    Fella was a Harley owner too so I'm gonna expect the best and say for sure he drained the gas from the tank & carb, oil, etc at the end of each season.

    I'm hoping good luck with this machine for Many Seasons. My pops used to have a MTD without an electric start and it was a BEAR just to get it started ! Partially I think it was my pops fault from a maintainence standpoint ........
