Description of the Honda Snow Blower HS928TA

You may want to review the full feature list for this snow blower above, however we wanted to mention that this snow blower features one handed controls allowing the operator to steer the machine, while adjusting various items with the other hand including chute rotation, direction and ground speed. Note that ground speed adjustments do not change the auger speed or throwing capabilities.

This is another really great snow blower with many features that operators will appreciate. The only issue we can see which may not bother many operators is the lack of an electric starter. The writer has an electric starter on a his own machine, a different model and manufacturer and we might have used the electric starter a dozen times over the past 10 years.

Delivery

Most customers will have to arrange for delivery of their new snow blowers. They are far too big to take home in your car, so you will need a trailer, rent a van or arrange for delivery by the store that you are purchasing the snow blower from. There will be a charge for this service, but it will be the easiest way to arrange for your new snow blower to be delivered to your home. Some stores will rent their vans/trucks to you for a very low price for 2 hours for you to take your purchases home. Lowes and Home Depot do this as well as others.

Accessories

Most snow blowers can be purchased with tire chains to provide extra traction in icy situations. In addition, snow shields are also a good idea if you want to protect yourself from windy conditions and snow being blown back at you from the wind. 

Safety & Operation

A snow blower is a powerful machine and should be treated with safety in mind. Carefully read all of the safety guidelines in the manual prior to operating the machine for the first time and follow these guidelines to ensure that both you and the machine do not have an accident.

Prior to starting your snowblower the first time each day, perform a quick walk around check of the machine to ensure there are no loose parts and no leaking fluids. Check the engine oil to ensure that it is at the correct level as specified by the manual. Top up if necessary. Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cold and prior to using the machine. If you do spill fuel, wait until it has fully evaporated prior to starting the engine. Never spill fuel on a hot engine to avoid fires and always fill the fuel tank outdoors to avoid any possibility of vapors going into your house.

Finally never point the chute in the direction of people, buildings or cars to avoid any possible damage and accidents. Sometimes chunks of ice can be thrown at high speed from the chute and if they hit something, it can cause a lot of damage.

Never work on your snow blower with the engine running – this seems like an obvious thing but people still do it and are hurt, sometimes badly, every year. Always turn it off before you do any maintenance, add fuel, check the oil, fix the chains on the tires, or clear the augers of snow.

Clearing Snow from the Augers - this is were lots of people are hurt every year. Before you try to clear snow that is plugging the augers, shut the engine off to avoid sudden turning of the augers or the impeller which could cause lots of damage to fingers, hands and arms.

Use Snow Clearing Tool - This is the really important part. You have plugged the augers with snow, you have shut the machine off and now you are trying to clear the snow away. Never place your hands inside the augers to get at the snow. Use a broom handle if you have an old machine, or the snow clearing tool that came with your newer machine to clear the snow. You can also purchase these tools from most stores as an extra if you break yours or if you have an older machine which does not have one. This is the safe way to clear snow from around the augers and the impeller.

Sometimes the snow is so compacted, that as you clear it away, it allows the augers to turn as a result of built up tension in the pulley mechanism. Better to have a broom handle stuck in there than your hands!

Most new snow blowers come with a snow clearing tool which you can use for this purpose. Always use this tool and never use your hands. If you have an older machine, an old broom handle will do the trick as well.

Maintenance

Like all snow blowers or snow throwers, maintenance is important for your machine to operate at a peak level for many years. Change the engine oil regularly, check the belts for tightness, change the spark plug as required and grease any spots outlined in the manual. If you need to leave the snow blower outside all year round, cover the machine with a proper cover to keep it looking new and avoid deterioration of the tires and metal components.

Sometimes the snow is so compacted, that as you clear it away, it allows the augers to turn as a result of built up tension in the pulley mechanism. Better to have a broom handle stuck in there than your hands!

Most new snow blowers come with a snow clearing tool which you can use for this purpose. Always use this tool and never use your hands. If you have an older machine, an old broom handle will do the trick as well.

Maintenance

Like all snow blowers or snow throwers, maintenance is important for your machine to operate at a peak level for many years. Change the engine oil regularly, check the belts for tightness, change the spark plug as required and grease any spots outlined in the manual. If you need to leave the snow blower outside all year round, cover the machine with a proper cover to keep it looking new and avoid deterioration of the tires and metal components.

Delivery

Most customers will have to arrange for delivery of their new snow blowers. They are far too big to take home in your car, so you will need a trailer, rent a van or arrange for delivery by the store that you are purchasing the snow blower from. There will be a charge for this service, but it will be the easiest way to arrange for your new snow blower to be delivered to your home. Some stores will rent their vans/trucks to you for a very low price for 2 hours for you to take your purchases home. Lowes and Home Depot do this as well as others.

Accessories

Most snow blowers can be purchased with tire chains to provide extra traction in icy situations. In addition, snow shields are also a good idea if you want to protect yourself from windy conditions and snow being blown back at you from the wind. 

Safety & Operation

A snow blower is a powerful machine and should be treated with safety in mind. Carefully read all of the safety guidelines in the manual prior to operating the machine for the first time and follow these guidelines to ensure that both you and the machine do not have an accident.

Prior to starting your snowblower the first time each day, perform a quick walk around check of the machine to ensure there are no loose parts and no leaking fluids. Check the engine oil to ensure that it is at the correct level as specified by the manual. Top up if necessary. Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cold and prior to using the machine. If you do spill fuel, wait until it has fully evaporated prior to starting the engine. Never spill fuel on a hot engine to avoid fires and always fill the fuel tank outdoors to avoid any possibility of vapors going into your house.

Finally never point the chute in the direction of people, buildings or cars to avoid any possible damage and accidents. Sometimes chunks of ice can be thrown at high speed from the chute and if they hit something, it can cause a lot of damage.

Never work on your snow blower with the engine running – this seems like an obvious thing but people still do it and are hurt, sometimes badly, every year. Always turn it off before you do any maintenance, add fuel, check the oil, fix the chains on the tires, or clear the augers of snow.

Clearing Snow from the Augers - this is were lots of people are hurt every year. Before you try to clear snow that is plugging the augers, shut the engine off to avoid sudden turning of the augers or the impeller which could cause lots of damage to fingers, hands and arms.

Use Snow Clearing Tool - This is the really important part. You have plugged the augers with snow, you have shut the machine off and now you are trying to clear the snow away. Never place your hands inside the augers to get at the snow. Use a broom handle if you have an old machine, or the snow clearing tool that came with your newer machine to clear the snow. You can also purchase these tools from most stores as an extra if you break yours or if you have an older machine which does not have one. This is the safe way to clear snow from around the augers and the impeller.

It is powered by a 277cc engine winterized engine and comes with 12 inch augers and a 12 inch impeller. This snow thrower is great for most urban situations and comes with lots of features that many people will appreciate.

The heated handles is one feature that will please everyone. If you have been outside blowing snow in freezing temperatures, your fingers often get very cold when you have to hold on to the cold steel handles. With heated handles, you will never need to deal with this issue again. Having cold hands makes it very unpleasant to be outside blowing snow.

This snow thrower comes with 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds, which is pretty standard in the industry. It has an electric starter, however it does not have clickable steering that some other models have. Clickable steering allows you to change direction by clicking a trigger switch, which can be useful if you do not like to manhandle a snow blower.

Specifications:

  • 277cc PowerMore™ OHV winterized engine runs quieter and cleaner
  • 28” clearing width
  • 6 forward, 2 reverse speeds: select the best pace for both you and the snow conditions
  • 12” X-treme augers: each auger flight has its own shear bolts to allow augers to continue working if one goes down
  • 12” impeller and 21” intake height
  • 16″ x 6.5″ X-trac snow tires for maximum traction

Engine: This MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG has a 277cc PowerMore™ OHV winterized engine runs quieter and cleaner

Transmission: This MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG comes with 6 forward, 2 reverse speeds: select the best pace for both you and the snow conditions

Warranty: 3 year limited warranty for true peace of mind

  • Steerable wheel drive turns snow blower left or right with the click of a trigger
  • Electric Start: No need to pull. Manual back-up included
  • NEW 4-way chute control – direct snow up, down, and side-to-side
  • Taller poly chute focuses concentrated blasts of snow – arctic tested: won’t rust, dent, or crack!
  • Heated handle grips keep hands warm
  • Single hand controls: locks in speed leaving one hand free to operate chute
  • In-dash yard light: for improved visibility and safety
  • Poly slide shoes: help prevent driveway marks and scratches
  • Tool-less drift cutters to cut away at deep snow drifts
  • Space saving, folding handles for easy storage
  • Automotive style powder coated paint for a durable, longlasting finish
  • Extra shear bolts included
  • Assembles in minutes – no tools required
  • Oil pre-filled in engine – gas it up and you’re ready to go!

Description of the MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG

This snow thrower has lots of features as listed above. We like the in dash yard light. Operators will find this useful if you are blowing snow in poor light conditions in the evening or early morning. Also the tool less drift cutters are an advantage especially if you get heavy snow that drifts across your driveway or walkway.

The engine comes pre-filled with oil, however we recommend that you always check the oil level before starting to make sure that there is sufficient oil in the engine. It can be ready to go in minutes, just unfold the handles, check the oil level, add fuel and you should be ready to go. Read the instruction book first before operating for the first time.
