Snow Blowers Direct Recommended

The Honda HSS928AATD 28” 270cc two-stage track drive system truly is the workhorse for the professional grade owner. This snow blower comes equipped with a commercial grade Honda GX270 engine.

The Honda HSS928AATD is reinforced with an automotive-style DC 12-volt key start, requiring no plugging in of an electrical cord to start. Simply turn the key and you are ready to take on anything winter throws at you.

What about the bells and whistles? You can add on the fingertip steering... more

This Is The Best Snow Blower I Have Ever Owned And Easiest To Op
I have learned that this Honda HSS928AATD is much different than any of the other snow blowers that I have owned and operated here in snowy New England over the past 50 years, including my 28 year old Honda HS828 track drive, which this new machine has replaced. This Honda wants the operator to let it do all of the hard work by itself and all the operator has to do is to steer the snow blower into the right direction.

At the end of the pass the operator should press the lever and raise the... more

"Yes I would like to say this about P.E.D. My 28year old Honda machine broke down for good on a Monday night and I needed a new one right away before the next snowstorm. I purchased this at 5:00 AM on Tuesday from P.E.D website. The snow blower was placed on the truck the same day. It was delivered to me here in New England on Thursday and the truck driver even helped me open up the shipping crate. I just had to add the engine oil to the engine which came in the box and fill the gasoline tank and I was ready just in time for our next snowstorm. Thanks Power Equipment Direct!"

Unsure Because Of Price.
I was a bit nervous about the purchase price, but now I am sure it is worth every penny. I have several Honda power tools around the house and I am always amazed at the reliability and performance. The engines always start easily, always. This snowblower arrived fast and after pouring in the supplied oil it started right up. The machine literally surpassed my expectations. I live in the woods and have a long steep gravel driveway.

I was worried that the machine would have trouble going... more

"Snowblowersdirect was easy to puchase from. The shipping was faster than said by over a week. Packaging was amazing. This crate they put it in could have withstood a train wreck, but still fast and easy to open. I will buy from them in the future."

Yes It's Expensive, But...
We have several of these machines in service. One was in a flood and was completely submerged then sat for a month. We sent it to the shop expecting it to require an overhaul. They changed the fluids and it started up with no problems.

The track drive is much nicer to operate than tires. The handlebars don't beat your arms up when using tracks. This unit has power steering like a tank. Squeeze a lever by either hand and it turns in that direction. No more wrestling the unit to turn 180... more

Honda Quality
Recently, I purchased a Honda HSS928ATD snowblower to replace an aging Ariens that served me well for 30+ years. Choosing the Honda 928 was the result of product research that focused on quality and ability to do the job.

I live in New England where we can get wet or dry snow and everything in between along with significant accumulations, so a well made durable snow blower is a requirement. The track drive feature on this model was chosen because I have a steep driveway that is difficult... more

Works As Advertised
Did not have enough oil supplied to fill crankcase to desired level. Had to drive to town to buy a quart of oil. Capacity is 1.2qts but only 1qt is supplied. Starts easy, runs well. Like the easy to use handles and chute joy stick.

Had a hard time with wet and packed show, but several passes over the same area cleared it. Think its a little expensive. Can't wait to use it in something easier like powered snow.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use
Cons: Expensive

Great Snow Blower
Upgraded to this from a wheeled 24" big box store blower and wow. The 50ft advertised throwing distance is for real, I can now snow blow each of my driveways once where as the old snow blower I was blowing the same snow 2-3 times to get it off the concrete.

The tracks are immensely helpful with traction and after the 2 snow storms this year of 3+ feet per storm this thing cleaned up all the large drifts around the house. One thing I did add was some LED pod lights and a switch.

Great Traction For Uphill Slope
The Honda products I have purchased, CRV, outboard motors, lawn mowers, lawn trimmer, have not let me down. The Honda snow blower is in the same class of quality and dependability.

Yes, it's more expensive but I know like all of my Honda products it has all the bells and whistles and it will be dependable.

This snow blower has no problem clearing my steep driveway covered with 6 inch snow. Don't settle for less - you deserve the best.
Pros: High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Expensive, Didn't come with front skids, Should come with at least 6 sheer pins. They are hard to find.

Great snow blower, needed it this winter in crested butte co. Deep snow, and allot of it. This machine shreds right though the toughest of drifts and sends it to the neighbors. Thanks.

A Little Disappointed
Not sure if it have anything to do with the track drive, I can't get it to clear the snow closed enough to the surface like my old Simplicity snowblower did.

Not enough power...engine sounds like it's going to stalled even when I clear only a pile of fluffy snow if I drive a little fast.
Pros: High Quality, Features, Reliable
Cons: Expensive
