Pros:Traction, Honda reputation, easy pull start

Cons:No elec start available. Can't practically move while not running.

The Bottom Line: Get it. It's a Honda


I have had this product for just this year. It has replaced my Honda HS621 single stage snowblower. The reason for replacement was due to moving into a new house with a sloped driveway.
I was torn between the HS724TA (tracks) and the HS724WA (wheels) and decided for the extra ($35 is what the difference at my dealer was) money I would go with the track drive for the extra traction.
I love the drive system with one reservation, turning around. A wheeled snowblower is much easier to turn around say at your front steps whilst doing your front door approach. However, when the plow trucks come and block your driveway, the tracked model has more traction that keeps it on the ground and going through the snow rather than just spinning the tires.
I also have an off camber hill on my driveway that was the reason for getting rid of the HS621 single stage. It would fly down the hills and crawl up. The HS724TA now is able to go up and down at the same speed while clearing the driveway very nicely.

Another nice thing about the track drive is I use this snowblower to clear paths through the yard for my 3 year old daughter who has trouble walking in the deep snow. I can clear a path up the hill so she can walk up and sled down.
I also find the impact on the grass to be minimal because of the larger surface area the track imparts vs. a wheel.
I also use this snowblower to clear all of the snow between the curb and the sidewalk so visitors getting out of their cars don't have to walk through deep snow to get to the house.
I do miss the electric start on my HS621, but if you can't pull start this you need to seriously consider a basic exercise program. I can easily pull start this, my wife can easily pull start this. My three year old cannot, so that could be a safety feature I guess.
This unit is not the type you are going to load into the back of your pickup or suburban with out a friend or some ramps. It is heavy.
You do have to remember to disengage the transmission with a near ground level mounted lever if you plan to push this snow blower around. Which leads to the downside of the track drive. Unless you weigh more than 150 pounds and have grippy shoes, don't attempt to push this. The hydrostatic transmission combined with the weight of the unit makes this one hard snowblower to push with the engine off. Drive this to where you want it and then turn it off.
Good distance on the throwing, nice adjustments on the chute both direction and height.
Finally, it's a Honda, it will just run and run and run. Not loud like those two stroke things you hear at 5 am. Quiet like a Honda lawnmower (love mine).
Be prepared to pay for the name. These don't come cheap.
