Yamaha YS-624W, What is it worth?

Hi,

I am a bit of a noob with Yamaha Snowblowers. To be honest, till recently I didn't even know they existed. I have just become the proud owner of a YS-624W which is in really good shape.

I was hoping you guys could give me some input on what it is worth. I just serviced it (oil change, carb cleaning, Fuel tank flush,..) and everything works perfectly. Starts on the first pull every time, the gears work, the tires look almost new, even the light works perfectly. It has some minimal rust in the drum, but the rest of the blower is virtually rust free.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Wow. That looks great. A metal tank 3 speed version is an earlier model, but that makes the condition even more remarkable.
As to value....It always depends...

Lol, that's exactly my problem. I am completely lost as to what its value is. Knowing that these yamahas have such a following, i would rather sell it to someone that's into those machines, rather than someone that will just let it rot with no maintenance.

Price is completely subjective and depends on your area, that machine here in the NE area can be found, in that condition for around $100~200. I paid $150 for my mint condition YS624, bought it from the original owner.

Here is one for sale right now for $150, identical to yours and mine.









Here is mine

Must be the headlight that adds the $400.

To the right buyer he could probably get $600.

The value is what someone will pay you for it.

I've bought honda hs928's multiple ones in the $500-$600 range Is that their value?

Snowbelt_subie, $150 seems outrageously cheap. Most people want more than that for an broken cheapo brand machine. But i guess deals can always be found

Yes, I think $600 US sounds right too. The augers on your machine still have their points showing that you have been maintaining it properly.

Honda HSS928AWD (upgraded chute, transmission)
Honda HS720AS (at sister's)
Honda EU2000i (generator)
