YS624 for Sale - Grand Rapids, MI

Hello Everyone,

I have a YS624 for sale. I purchased a house and the previous owner left it in the garage. He left gas in the tank and it won't start. I have both original keys. I purchased a Cub Cadet because I can't get anyone to work on it locally. I'm asking $200 which based on other forums here, seems to be a fair asking price. I'm located in Grand Rapids, MI and whoever wants it would need to arrange transportation. I'm not mechanically inclined, I prefer electronics, so I have no idea if it has any other issues besides having the gas left in it. I can take more pictures if you have specific questions. I can tell you it has the metal gas tank, not the plastic one, and as you can see from the picture it has the tracks, not the wheels. It does NOT have the headlight on it, but it does have the wiring for it. Also, you can shift through all the gears with no issue, as I've read sometimes those stick. If you have any other questions, please post a message here or send me a message and I will answer as much as I know. Thanks.

That is going to be a hard sell with the augers worn than much.

Thumbs up

$200 is definitely a fair price. Tracks seem in pretty good condition. Augers look worn but not that bad. Shifting easy thru the gears is a plus. Body doesn't look badly rusted and rust inside auger housing is not terrible.


Good luck with the sale (if it was in my area I probably wouldn't hesitate on grabbing it).

I already have my Cub Cadet so this is more of a clean out the garage and hope someone can get some use out of it before this winter sale. I know it's hard to find parts for them, but you can also interchange Honda stuff. That's mostly from reading here. I'll leave this post up for a little while since I know there's a lot of people on the site who are snowblower mechanic hobbyist people. I didn't list it on Craigslist or anything. I'm always open to "fair" offers but this isn't a barnburner item for me.

Seems like a fair price for what it is right now, especially if it runs. Why are the shear pins protruding?
You may have to wait a couple months for any interest.

I have no idea what shear pins are. I purchased my house from an older couple that was ready to leave Michigan and retire to Arizona and he left everything in the garage. Table saws, lawn mower, snowblower, just a bunch of stuff. This thing has never run. He left gas in it, which from what i've read, makes you need to clean the fuel lines and carburetor. I listed it early in case someone was looking for a project they could fix before the snow comes. I can't get any shop locally to work on it.

Looks to me like they were replaced with regular, extra-long bolts.

more than likely all it needed was to clean the carb, minimal tools or knowledge needed and some carb clean spray, plenty of vids on howto and this forum to ask

Thank you for posting this rare machine for sale on this site. You didn't have to.

While in need of some work, the price is still not out of whack.

No need to nit-pick the Seller fella's
