It replaces my YS524 which did the job for 30 years.

Haven't they settled that litigation yet? Something about measuring hp at Auger for Yamaha instead of engine HP. I think that was behind it. 624 with a Yamaha stands for [email protected] Auger and 24 for the width in inches where with an MTD 6 would have meant engine horsepower and they cried foul on the Yamaha designation for unfair practice. Because it threw snow quite better than the MTD 8hp at the time.

That's why the exact same yamaha snowblower was renamed the second year from YS524 to YS624. My YS524 actually had both designation on it. YS524 on the nameplate decal and YS624 on the actual model number plate that had the serial number.

That is a beautiful machine, and makes me envious of my neighbors to the north.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I can't believe how quiet it is compared to my old 524.

Absolutely beautiful machine. I am getting ready to go over my old ys624w and I have to say that this looks like the perfect successor to the original. Hope you post vids of it throwing snow real soon. Enjoy and hope it treats you just as well as your old one did

I ran an ancient (~20 years old) YS-828 last year and it was really quiet compared to the even older (~35 years old) 8HP Tecumseh I had before it. I believe the Yammie was also quieter than the Honda I have now. So in my limited experience with Yamahas I have to agree, they're pretty quiet.

Anyone here in USA ever buy a Yamaha in Canada and back it into the US? Just wondering about import duty and fees etc... I'm within 2.5-3 hours of border, just thinking out loud.
