For users who have never had the pleasure of operating a unit with this feature,you likely think it is just a gimmick. I won't buy a snowblower without the power steering feature on it. This feature turns an unruly hard to handle big snowblower into a very manageable machine for even old folks to use.
Honda snowblowers are sold with a power steering feature. They call it fingertip steering. Quoted from the website:
"Left and right control levers provide easy and intuitive steering control. The steering control levers also provide easy movement and transport, even with the engine off. Just pull and hold both levers for neutral, then easily roll the snow blower."
I guess they have caught up to the competition then...
Only 25-30 yrs late.. Hard to believe it took an innovative company like Honda so long to bring this feature to the market.
