Colby, yt624

I find my new yt 624 bower,pulls a little to left side when tracks are engaged, my honda 928 had side skids and rear skids and read that rear skids on blowers can cause that, so when I took rear skids off the 928 honda she was fine with just the front side skids and never pulled either way but straight, theres not enough space to put side skids on the buckets on the new yamahas because the augers are to close and bolts would hit off the auger, same problem I had when I put the bucket extension on, the bolts on sides of lower part were striking the auger ,had to use real small head bolts so it would'nt strike the auger, wondering now if the left rear skid may be adjusted down a bit further then the right rear skid however they look even but never measured it yet to see,anyone else run into this with just rear skids on the blowers

Maybe you're pushing down to much on the front. The front of the track should not be off the ground, this defiets the purpose of tracks. Mine never pulled because I added in-line skate wheels each side of the housing right from the beginning. (My best mod)

I may have a complete extra set here if you can't find them!

I do, just need the 2 M8 SS bolts and 4 SS M8 fender washers





You might want 80mm and a different rubber compound if you're on gravel .

HI! Chaulky and Coby. I guess I am now officially joining the Yt624ej club. I dropped the hammer on a new Yt 624 last week. I was able to “test drive” it in the 50 cm of snow that fell in Ottawa. Wow! The machine has some serious power for a “little” 6hp engine. While I was having fun with the 624 they were using a couple of 1028s to clear the parking lot. I had to do my best to avoid them since they had some serious discounts on those units. The 1028s are super quiet and have serious power, but I’m sure they would be overkill for my situation. I Haven’t tried my 624 very much in my own driveway yet. I am planning to do the Coby Skate wheel mod today since the 15-30cm of white stuff looks like its going to be 15-30mm of clear stuff. I sure hope the power stays on, so the boss doesn’t tell me that I should have bought a generator instead I managed to buy the stainless hardware at a specialty hardware store but, I had a tough time sourcing the wheels until I found them at a Canadian Tire store. I was only able to find 76mm wheels, but I think they will be okay because that results in my machine being only 1mm (.040”) lower than Coby’s. I think it’s a great mod. Now I’ll be looking to sell my 2012 Honda 928TAS.

Well I hope you will do a review of pros and cons for both machines since you will have had a chance to use both, nobody seems to believe me when I say how great these are.

Just ordered a set of blue roller skate wheels that have blue flashing LEDs inside when you roll them. I may not be the coolest guy but I should have the coolest snowblower side skids ever.



This I will have to take a video of...
