Well Subaru got out of the business, let's hope Yamaha can find some success.

I see they have 402cc and 358cc MX horizontals and smaller MZ horizontals. Wonder if LCT is getting nervous Ariens did a "very quiet" study to pick those big Yamaha verticals?

Maybe along with the engines, will Ariens have "access" to other Yamaha technologies involved in their snowblowers? If Yamaha does not want to import it's snowblowers into the US, let Ariens license those technologies and produce an amazing range of 22nd century snowblowers.

IMHO Ariens needs to get a tracked model going soon to compete with Honda. A complete redesigned unit, built as a tracked snowblower from the ground up.

...and these would be the ideal engines to use! John Deere does something similar with their tractors. The D100 series sold at the big box stores have B&S engines while the more upscale series have Kawasakis.
