Re: Shipping a honda snowblower

Thanks for the info.I called Honda and they said the 622 is probably not sold in the US due to the fact that it doesn't meet emission standards.So would I have problems having it clear customs?The only reason I wanted a 622 is so my wife can use it to go up and down steps to a walkway.I figured it's also easier to turn than a 724.If I bought a used 622 on craigslist, would I still have a problem getting parts for it?

Would a honda dealer in Canada ship a hs622 to me in New York?Also what would be a ballpark figure to ship it to me?

it's not a diesel's a $#%*mins onan 30k w liquid cooled natural gas gen.It's a gm engine running at 1800 rpm.The engine block heater is to keep I guess the block warm so when the power goes out,it will be prepared to deliver full power in 10 seconds.Otherwise you would have a cold engine trying to del max power before the engine is warm.

I have a 30kw water cooled $#%*mins onan standby generator.The manual recommends 10w30'or 5w30.the company that installed it said they use 15w40.I asked them why and he said that the engine has an engine block heater and 10w30 was too thin for year round use.My question is ....would 15w40 be too heavy of an oil for use in the winter?Or is it ok since the engine has a block heater?
