Yamaha YS1028J measurements.

Hello,
I am considering purchasing a Yamaha YS1028J, But I am wondering if it will fit inside a minivan with all the rear seats removed?
Basically, I'd like to know the measurement from a flat floor surface to the highest point at the handle bars area (seems to be the control levers) with the machine in transport mode (auger housing raised all the way), and the height from a flat floor surface to the chute with the deflectors on its furthest down setting while the machine is in normal use position.

If there is(are) a(any) member(s) in Canada that may assist me with that I'd appreciate it.

Many thanks in advance.

Measurements on completely flat surface are as follows.
Height: 36.5inches at the forward/reverse control lever ( when blower is tilted back in full transport mode )
Height: 41 inches measured at the same point when blower bucket is level.
Chute height is about 38inches when tip is completely curled downwards. While blower is in transport mode.
Total length from back of rear handle to drift cutter is 63inches.

Thank you very much.
I'll check the room available in the minivan and report back.
If you don't mind, I'd like to have the height of the chute curled down with the blower in "normal use" (not in transport mode, nor in scrape mode).
Thanks again.

hs, I don't know how a Yamaha is assembled bucket to tractor. On the machines i have transported in our Suburban, I have split them to make it really easy or tilt them all the way back on the handlebars. As you probably know on an Ariens/JD or similar Murray design there's not much to splitting them. The Yamaha may be a different story.

So far at the handlebars the height is only 1/2" taller than the Yamaha YS828 which fits well inside the minivan.
I the worse case scenario, I may have to remove the chute, but for the rest, I think it will fit.

Honda and Yamaha are not as simple as older Ariens to separate the auger housing from their tractors ~4 vs ~14 bolts (not too bad, but not as simple as an Ariens).

Can any YS1028J owner post what type of shear pins they use?
I am thinking weather I should get at least a half dozen of shear pins (if they are unique) along with a Service Manual for the snowblower.....

We've all been wondering that.
In fact we've all been wondering why he doesn't just go ahead and change his name to Ysbfan.

Thanks again.
The chute curled down with machine in normal use mode ( completely level ) is 37.5 inches. The tallest point on the machine are the control levers.The tallest point on my old 624 is the chute crank handle. I never measured that but it looks to be roughly the same height as the control levers on the new one.
