and i would maybe believe that for the 1 track but not the other that shows excessive wear. you never know. if a dealer screws up do they admit it or try to brush it off? sometimes a bit of pressure from above might help. it is not like those things are cheap. if you paid for it with credit card you could maybe see if there is some sort of extra warranty on it that might cover the repair. it is not even like this winter was that bad. it was very mild this winter. might have been lucky if the outdoor rinks around me were open for a 30 days total around here and i am only 6 hours west of you.

Mon Ami;


Calling the attorney general in Ottowa will get you results if your call to Yamaha Canada does not result in an adequate solution.

When "certain people" hear that you are going to call the attorney general In Ottowa unless the problems are solved by them to your satisfaction they get very nice and nervous quickly- it worked well for me with getting money for boiler controls that they were not going to refund my money to me-it works, it really does.

That thing needs work and the tracks should not have worn like that either so do not let them bullshit you in to being pushed away to obtain satisfaction and get them to replace the tracks as the rubber should not have broken up like that anyway. The original heavier rubber tracks for the 2017 models looked nothing like those.

I am sorry to hear that you sold it.

Your snow blower problems were created by
some samsonite gorilla at the Yamaha shop where
you bought it.

"You" did nothing wrong.

i hate dealing with people like that. clearly doesn't read the add or look at the pics and wants it till they start seeing stuff wrong with it in person. if only they had read the add or looked at the pics they would have saved you both time and headache but i bet your also having to deal with tons of idiot that are likely low balling you on the machine since they are reading the ad and seeing what is wrong with it

Hello Kidastra,

I thought you said it was at the dealers shop getting repaired? Did you call Yamaha Canada? I would hold onto it have them repair it rather than sell it as you have a machine that will outperform everything on the market except a subcompact tractor with a single stage rear mount snow blower.

Don't get discouraged, as you will not get realistic offers even after you have it repaired.
