Bonjour, wow lots of information, I noticed the damaged housing, I just assumed the scraper was supposed to be on the inside. I'll keep you updated once I know more

Bonjour kidastra,

Do you have any news as yet????

I hope that they replace the tracks for you as they should not look like that after one season.

I cannot believe that the electromagnetic clutch for this beautiful snow blower is causing you problems
But as it seems the track drive system for your 1028 is also an issue due to the tractor tread damage
from slippage.

The track rubber certainly looks different on your snow blower compared to the rubber tracks on the 2017 models as there was no ribbing on the tractor tread base rubber between the treads.

Would you mind taking a photo image of that beautiful snow blower with the hood off??
Mon Ami, (My friend) she should not be too embarrassed as the Resident Snowblower Medecins(Doctors)
here are only interested in maintaining the health of that beautiful snow blower.

Je, nous(I, We) look forward to hearing from you about the visit to the Yamaha dealer as Elle should not
be sick like this in any case.

I hope that they repair son (her) at no charge to you as elle (she) should not look like that.

To the original poster and Leonz, in post #12 on this thread, picture #1 shows the the belly pan area lower on the left side than the right side, guessing in the area of a 1/4" to 1/2". Never had a track system so take this information with caution. Could this cause problems for kidastra?

Good morning Aldfam,

I can see what you are referring and it looks weird at first simply due to the fact that there is a collar on the inside of the driven sprocket on the right side.

The picture image is not centered and I believe that that is why it looks like that as our fellow member from Quebec was holding that beautiful snow blower up with his left arm and hand and using his right arm to use his smart phone to take the picture image.

I do not remember if both sides have a removable locking pin or not but I believe only one side does have the removable pin. to turn that beautiful snowblower leaving one track to move separately and the opposing track as locked.

I had hoped to see steering brakes on this years model as they have them on the units sold in Europe from what I have seen.

Well, if that is the case I would trade it in on a 1332 at another dealer after they fix and they put the scraper bar on the outside where it is supposed to be for you and getting the new cross auger housing installed which also needs to be done and if they start whining you can tell them that you will call Yamaha Canada first and the attorney general David Lametti in Ottowa second as whoever put that thing together was either high or drunk or just knew nothing about snow blowers.

OH, and by the way you have plenty of life left in those tracks. you only replace them when the lugs are gone.

have you tried contacting someone higher up at yamaha? if tracks are that worn after 1 season of lite used there must definitely be something wrong with the quality of the tracks or whoever set the machine up at the dealer/factory screwed up.
