My YT-624E

Finally made it to the dealer to pick up my blower.
I had a really hard time deciding between the 1028 and the 624. In the end, it was the size and price that made the decision.
The 1028 is a lot bigger. I mean a lot. It's a tank. It is also almost 2 grand more when you include taxes.

So I brought home a shiny 624. Now, all I need is some snow!!!

Welcome to the blue family! Yamaha moved away from that design and went with the drift cutter bar like you probably saw on the 1028. It is more efficient by design. You can probably still get it from Yamaha since they used to be an option on the older models.

By the way yours is a YT624EJ, you can quickly tell by the black gas tank and the black control panel. But if you need parts for it you will have to ask for a YT660EJ, don't ask me why but they don't have a parts Catalogue for th YT624EJ. They are the same machine with different names. One is metric and the other is English.

I tell ya. I had them both sitting outside. I was this close to putting the 1028 in my trailer. It is a beast! Whisper quiet too.

I found it too heavy to handle plus you can't skim the top of snowdrifts with that one because the tracks can't hold the weight of the machine. The salesman I talked to said they sold the YT624 10:1

I believe the 10:1. But think that's more to do with price than anything.

Got the service and parts manual downloaded today for the YT660EJ. Still need to decompress files to see if it all came through okay. Hopefully it will be in .pdf format.

Where did you download it from? My father just bought the last YT624EJ in town. I know he'd love to have that.
