Replacing the Auger Paddles on a Honda HS520 Snow Blower
Watch our video on how to replace the auger paddles on a Honda HS520 single stage snow blower.
The auger paddles on a single stage snowblower come in direct contact with the ground when clearing snow. After many uses, the rubber auger paddles will wear down and will need to be replaced.
Remove the ignition key
Disconnect spark plug
Tilt snowblower back so it rests on it’s handles for support
Each auger has 3 sections, loosen the nuts and bolts that connect them to each metal support and remove the side and center sections
Once you have removed all 3 sections, re-install the new paddles in the same position — insert the middle first, and then the sides
Be sure that the auger paddles are secure
