Yamaha Ricky

Hey guys , found this video , wish I knew Japanese , but he is showing of some really interesting models
Never knew Suzuki(they look awesome!) and Subaru made snowblowers He also shows of Ricky
I came across a Ricky for sale a couple of weeks back , it was renamed YS-NX for the Nordic marked,
however I think it would be a stugle getting any sort of parts for these machines.

Anyway , here's the video...

Thanks for sharing octane.
The Japanese domestic market machines are interesting, to say the least.
edit:
The Yahoo auctions website seems to be popular in Japan.
Here is an attempt at linkage to their snow machine listings. I typically sort to show 100 listings per page and then sort by price from high to low.

Interesting that the labeling on those machines are English. For English market? Havenít seen them for sale before. Love the Yahoo auction site. Have to run that through Google translate later.

Looks like Kubota made the Subaru also. Bodies, engines, and gear boxes were the same.


Kind of interesting how the engineers go the extra mile to hide the engines.
