I am constantly fascinated looking at all the awesome snow removal machines the JDM has. (I almost said JDM market, but that's like ATM machine).
I say we fill a few shipping containers and start by selling them in Alaska. The interest all snowballs from there into this continent.
My back pocket isn't big enough to hold all those lawyers.

Maybe a thread in 'Others' is the ticket after all.

They have amazing stuff over there. I know I got caught window shopping there, but check out this retracting auger cover on this Wado.

I know hey... been drooling over that one for a few days. 2013 model, 21 hours on the clock. Only $$$ nine large... yowza.

Kei truck is kind of like a membership card, up here in the hills... must-have all-purpose accessory. 4WD mandatory; A/C and/or automatic transmission means you failed.

Actually... the truck is only maybe a foot or so longer that the 'Bota. Need a pic with the 6-foot deck on to put it into perspective. Bear in mind truck engine, 660cc, 'Bota 1,100.

Scott
Can you provide a good filtered link to the auction site? The one I ended up bookmarking a year or two ago is super long. It's not so bad when looking at it in chicken tracks format, but if I try to paste it here it has about 75 different percent symbols in the URL.
As I've said before, the Japan Domestic Market for snow removal equipment is so impressive. I just think it's worth spending a few minutes looking for fun. If you are a Yamaha or a Honda person, prepare to see a hundred models you didn't know existed.

Just don't go thinking you can actually buy any of it because shipping to North America is either impossible or totally cost prohibitive. I'd still be without parts without the connections made here with YR along with my employment with the airlines that allowed me to send a family member there to pick them up.

Well you could always drive it home...

Dunno about a filtered link but I can make them show up in normal characters and let the computer figure it out. Dunno why it does that...

Here's a Honda with a blade you can lower for some snow machine action even in non-blowable snow: Yamaha YT660B
