I just did a temporary install of the Battery minder cable. I still need to study where would be the best place for it. I think any seasonnal machine with a battery should come with this plug-in, afterall these run 4 months of the year.

Like I said, I was going to figure out a better place for my batterry minder connector. It was right there in front of my eyes. There is a trapdoor for the oil spout so you don't have to remove the shroud when you want to check the oil.





Perfect place to tuck it away when you don't need it. Out of outdoor elements way.



Just finger fish it when you need it.

Stay tuned, working on a better skid plate for my YT624. I haven't used the present system but it looks weak to me.

The other day I saw people building dollies for their snow blowers on here. So today since I had a piece of treated " plywood left over from a previous project I decided to tackle this. Well didn't get far until back pain struck me down but got as far as cutting platform to size and installing 4 casters. Tomorrow after physio I'll tackle the ramp part and maybe painting if my back holds up.

That's a great snowblower, Coby!

I love my Honda but Yamaha was my first choice.

2015 Honda HS928WAK1.

Garage
Thumbs up

That is a good ideal.

It was asked somewhere else about moving the tracked blowers when the engine is off. Is there some setting on the machine that will allow the tracks to sort of free wheel when you push it around in the garage? I never operated a tracked blower.
Is that the reason your building the dolly for it or do you just want to gt it up off the floor?
How about drilling some drain holes and installing a drip pan to catch the water after it melts down?
Sort of like a refrigerator's defrosting drip pan?

Love that color Blue. (thumbs up)
Needs some pin striping.

I wonder why they don't sell them down here in the Sates?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

You can pull the axle quick pins but I don't like to bend over that low, I have a bad back. Once on the dolly you can spin with one little finger and move it just as easy so you can move it out of the way. I just thought it was a great idea and maybe cost me $50 in materials. This was not my idea, I actually saw it on this forum somewhere. I believe a guy from Newfoundland had his Honda on one.

OK, thanks I never got into track operation on a blower.
Then I guess most tracked blowers have that option?

Drip pan?
I think that is a good ideal, instead of melting all over your garage or shed.

Still....Love that Blue.
It looks so nice, I wouldn't want to use it.
