How many metres/yards do you think you are throwing? I'm getting about 10m absolute max.
Wait until the engine breaks in after about 10 hours of running. Each time you take it out you'll notice it get stronger and stronger.

Yes, I have also noticed that. But it won't make rpm's higher (i.e. add torque) under light/medium load, so not much is changing on those.

I have noticed that temperature and how much/how little snow you are feeding has an big effect on throwing distance. But I still think 15 meters (as the specs say) is a little optimistic value for the actual spot where most of the snow lands.

Hi to everyone,

I have this YT624, very please with it, but I wanted to buy some spare parts (like suspension wire cable, auger pulley). Is someone know an online dealer? Tried searching with no results... I believe that Yamaha keep them jealously...!

And how can I see your photos with photobucket???

thanks

Helllo Lucbuj,

They do no sales on line you have to go to an authorized Yamaha Power Equipment dealer in Canada if you live in Canada or the United States. They have dealers in Europe as well. The European Yamahas with the flush mounted white strobe lights are something that they should offer for all the countries they sell them in.

There is a member on the forum here "Yamaha Genuine parts" and on the Yamaha Snow Blower Forum(its free to join their forum too) that is a Yamaha dealer and he can help you as they export snow blower parts.

Had my first possible problem on my Yamaha. After sitting all summer I started it this week and when I engaged the auger I could here one of the bearings screaming for grease. Took the auger apart and replaced all 3 bearings as preventative maintenance. I put in SKF double sealed bearings 6203. These should last longer in the salt saturated EOD. Had done the same to my first Yamaha, no salt in Japan I guess.

Hey Coby, that Service Manual you have a link to on the 1st page....It is a great resource if I need to see how to do something; however, I don't know if I can print a page or 2.. Is that possible??

Any chance of getting that manual in a PDF format and printing it...?? Do you know if that's available anywhere?


I just got one also.....looks identical to yours.!

Thanx..

I thought it was all pdf. All pdf files are printable.
