I'm posting simply to say....I'm jealous!!! In a good way! I love that machine! And your post has more information on this unit than can be found anywhere else on line right now! Gorgeous machine, dead easy to man handles....the impeller sounds like a small plane taking off. It's all sex and beast IMHO a of course.

Great purchase! Now for some videos

Very nice!! Honda doesn't have a "624" anymore.. Honda's is the 7HP or 724 and below is the 6HP or 622. This Yamaha fits right in the middle..

I did find a lot of nice attention to detail in your pictures.. And the price point is pretty interesting...

HSS62TCS - $2,069
YT624TJ - $2,599
HSS724TCD - $3,499
HSS928TCD - $3,899

I am very tempted to look at the Yamaha because my Honda is getting tired and if I'm going to sping $2,000 I'll seriously look at the Yammy...

Awesome machine!
Have lots of fun blowing the white stuff...

By the way, some pages in the yamaha site shows the price of $2,599 and other $2999..
Probably they'll go for the more expensive asking price.

One difference between your old YS and new YT Coby is that the new Yami's are running on the hydro drive compared to the friction disc of your YS. So before you go beating on those poor Honda guys with the HS928's (tongue in cheek) better be sure your new Yami stands the 20+ year test of time. I have a 28+ year old HS80 that still runs like a top. That said, I would still kill for an old YS624 in decent shape...my personal snowblower Holy Grail.

Found this video of the new YT624 in action...ridiculously impressive to say the least:

$2,999.99 was last year's price. $2,599.00 is this year's new cut back price. I paid $2948.74 with 13% taxes in.

Just installed the drift cutter, Yamaha's design again is different and seems thought out.

For those who said Yamaha never made a 524 I found pictures of my old 524 if people are interessed. You will also notice the mid-year nameplate reads 624 to please the MTD folks and to try to avoid conflict. Also Yamaha blue is a bit faded lol

Coby, that is a beautiful machine you have and I never noticed the serrated scraper bar before. Looks like a nice innovation for help with compacted snow removal. Good luck with it.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

The bar is reversable, just flip it for the straight edge. I might flip mine since I'm on pavement. I'll see after the first storm.
