is "yamaha wet snow" and "2016 724 honda snow blower" from the same day?

I dont doubt Yahamas are fine machines..we all know they are.
but even if this is the same day, im still not sure its a meaningful comparison..

the guy with the Honda might be inexperienced..
and chaulky, it looks like you are going *much* slower into the snow than your neighbor..which is of course the better way to do it..your video shows your Yahama barely crawling along, very slowly..

But if your neighbor was trying to go even slightly faster into the dense snow, that could account for the bogging down..

so this isnt necessarily a valid comparison between a Yahama and a Honda, where all things are equal..
(when the Honda *is* throwing, its throwing fine..)
so the differences could be easily explainable by different operation of the machines..in other words, it could be the humans that are different! and not necessarily the snowblowers..

Yes you are right he was going a bit to fast and new to him, 1st snow blower, but he had it a nice while now, they took it down turned up the governor a few rpms its a bit better but not the way the older hondas are, as for mine, it was mild and pecking rain on the wet snow video and I just took it out of the back of the truck,same day I got it, so it was new to me also, it was 1st snow thrown that day,and no you cant go full boar through any type of snow but she is still better then the Honda , when /if we get a day where my long driveway is and we get more snow were going to go out with both blowers and do them side by side, but we need someone to shoot the video at the time and on a day when everyone is here to do it,we just never got the timing down yet to do it, hopefully before snow is all gone we can try it and see

and no videos are on different days, when he got his 724, we had a dump of snow, it was maybe -10, snow was light and fluffy from snow all night approx 10-12 inches that night
my video in wet was approx 4-5 degs and raining, and the other video of mine, maybe minis 10-12 also with approx 10-12 inches of snow on the later different day

No doubt that the Yamaha is doing better in the video (and maybe it is better than the HSS724), but as the OP states, I would like to see a side by side comparison, at the same time, same snow conditions and same ground speed. And of course someone else recording it to get a full view of them.

The way things look like so far it worse than like looking at this video for Honda (not a fair comparison at all).....
