Pros

Electric start if needed. Plug it in and start it up, but the thing starts on the first crank. Very nice!

2 agree

4-cycle engine on a single-stage thrower is a rare treat. No mixing of gas and oil required

2 agree

Honda small engines are great quality

2 agree

Metal chute. Look at ANY of the single stage throwers around, most of them are plastic which can break when ice/chunks pass through

2 agree

Have used it for 10 years now; I change the oil every two years and add fuel stabilizer at the end of every winter. This year (2012) I had to replace a worn scraper. Starts on the first pull.

This snow thrower had a little trouble because I let the fuel go bad no fuel stabilizer. Once I got it started, it ran rough. Then I put in fresh gas and it runs fine. It cleared the 20+ record snowfall I had in chicago this past winter with ease....

I bought it new in 2004 and 5 yrs later it still starts up in one pull. No need to use the electric start. Plus I haven't even performed one service on it (not one oil change and I don't even put fuel stabilizer when I store it). I think I'll perform maintenace on it this year though :).

Metal chute (not cheap plastic)
4-cycle (no messing with oil/gas mix)
strong snow-throwing ability (thank you 5 HP engine)

I love this machine, it's a real back-saver!
