Thumbs down yamaha ys1028

Bought a new Yamaha last fall, almost $5000 with taxes, selected the Yamaha based on the built in battery start.
Had problems from day one, cranked over till almost killed battery, before starting with a backfire. That was on the first start, after initial start, woud restart , no problem.
This fall, returned to the dealer, for service, and trouble shoot. New choke pushrod, then new carb, still won't start properly. 6 weeks have gone by, still not fixed. Told dealer I want to return it for another snowblower, now still waiting!!!
Don't understand why nobody including Yamaha won't clear this up.

You'd think they would just swap the engine after all it's still under warranty.

That is frustrating... maybe try a different dealer or call the national customer service number.

Sounds as though the service department is not quite adequate to deal with these machines.

Is there another dealer within a reasonable distance?

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.
