Posted quick walk around YS1028J

Since there are not too many videos of the Yamaha YS1028J, I figured I would post some to help others whom may be considering buying one. It's an ultra sharp looking machine. It's heavier than my Honda HS928 track but feels easier to move around. I love the fine finishing and extra touches such as the resin lined impeller and chute housing, the gasoline spill tray, battery and engine enclosures, and the carburator drain knob.

Great machine all around. The enclosure probably quiets it down a lot.

Me too. Unfortunately in Boston today we are getting pounded with rain and not snow. Next time, or next season.

Really not my intention, just interesting that this model has been around since 2012 but there are so few videos on the web. Thought you could find everything on YouTube nowadays.

Very nice looking machine Macplee. I like the design, looks solid, and I have seen video of this machine blowing snow going uphill, with no one behind it!

Thatís where the 400 lb weight of the unit plays a very important part adding great traction.

YSHSfan, yes I was initially worry about the extra weight, but itís such a well balanced machine as I am sure know.
Here are some photos as well.
