I changed my oil. The drain design is terrific and well thought out. I lubed my spindles on the gears, friction hub, augers, and turning cogs. I added a little grease to the gears and cleaned the drive and friction wheels. I adjusted the cable/friction wheel to speed up my reverse gears (seems to increase the speed by 2x- more tolerable. On ice it might be just right).

putting an impeller kit on a HS928kiTA

waiting for cables to come in. PO put wrong size cables for the auger and drive. a lot of micky mousing done to this machine and got it dirt cheap. the positive is that it has only been used 3 seasons and the engine has strong compression and the tranny operates smoothly.

evidence that it was used commercially. I knew this buying it but saw the potential.

picture is not actual machine. just trying to be funny.

I did a little investigation into a fuel valve shut off and a good location. It turns out I need to remove more than I thought to visualise the project, and I think ill perform this mod in the spring.

I admired mine today, because it's a Yamaha. Oh and I like blue very very much. Blue on white just feels very "Finnish"

I love that blue color; I think it is called Carolina Blue. But, I've had many pieces of equipment, including tractors, snow throwers, welders, splitters, etc., but the requipment painted red always appears much larger- except the yellow ones. For me, equipment is red or yellow.

I love it too! But I don't think it is called Carolina Blue (a term which is probably unknown in most Yamaha snowblower markets).


The latest generation models seem to be darker than the older models:

Luckily I found a rattle can here which is a match for the new darker Yamaha blower blue: https://www.maston.fi/fi/etusivu/tuo...oducts-content
