Ys1028JA disappointment

So I am finally getting around to closing the machine after using it since December, very disappointed the way this has held up, both tracks are worn due to the weight of the machine I'm guessing, I use the machine on a very sloped driveway only, and one side auger is completely worn down, no teeth remaining at all. Unit was bought in December 2018. Not sure how to add pictures, but I'll add them once I figure it out

First post is negative I know, I also own a Honda hss724ct, and an older hs624 i'm hoping to be around a while

auger it could be, but only 1 side is like that, are they black right through, because no paint missing. Tracks i can't see how, up and down the inclined drive way, no steps. the damage is down the middle where the track and wheel meet

Welcome to SBF.
Seems if only one side.is worn the skids/shoes were never properly set? I can't speak to the track issues. This is the first negative post on Yamaha blowers in my memory. Everyone who owns them is
always saying what great machines they are. That's a nice looking machine. Have you contacted Yamaha and discussed the track situation? I don't think that is caused by machine weight but it may be possible under certain conditions, I guess.

bottom of the bucket has no scrapes either, almost seems like the auger came like that. I bleed Yamaha blue, I hate to have these issues. Truth be told, not many 1028's out there so not many to point out issues. I can't even find a parts list without looking t the japan model ysf1070t

can't speak of tracks but auger worn on one side and not the other speaks of either bad adjustment of skids/scraper bar or perhaps the auger housing? have seen both on a Honda. if you can put machine on flat surface and look at it from front ground level , what do you see?

is the bucket cocked? are the augers cocked? I have no experience with Yamahas but the tracked units must be close to a honda. I have seen tweeked Honda buckets that have caused this. hopefully it just needs readjustments to the skids and/scraper.

with a sloped drive , you may need a little more clearance. what I do is put paint stirring sticks under the scraper with the height adjustment in the middle level and then adjust skids. That works for my drive. Maybe you need more clearance on the worn side.

good luck.

For many,many years snowblowers didn't have serrated or "toothed" augers. They supposedly break up ice and packed snow better than the smooth augers. It's not a huge deal not having them but my question, if I were in your situation, is why the heck did it happen? What misalignment or method of use caused this?
Do what orangeputeh recommended and see where the problem is.

Yes I plan on looking at it today, no blue paint missing from the bucket, skids seem to touch the floor, no paint missing from the auger. I just can't be sure I bought it like this, I didn't inspect it closely
