YT624EJ How easily does it turn?

In my quest for a new snowblower I've recently discovered the Yamaha machines, in particular the YT624EJ. Everything about it seems top notch but I'm wondering how difficult or not it is to maneuver without any kind of power assisted steering. Do you owners wish it had some kind of power steering or is it fine the way it is?

Easy turning on snow and ice, hard on pavement. You can add wheels to the front if you need easier pavement turning (lift the bars to engage the wheels).

I have absolutely no problem steering this machine, it weighs less than 200lbs and as long as it's moving a little bit it's even steerable on pavement or concrete. You will love this machine.

That's pretty much what I was hoping. Thanks Coby7!

Hanky, there are quite a few Yamaha dealers in Alberta but it looks like only a few of them sell the Yamaha blowers. Actually the dealer where I'm looking at the Husky is a big Yamaha/Kawasaki dealer in Lethbridge. I asked them if they sell the Yamaha snowblowers and they said they didn't carry them. I did a dealer search on Yamaha's website and it only showed 5 or 6 in the whole province that sell the Yamaha snowblowers. The closest one to me is in Okotoks up near Calgary. I sent them an email to try and get some information so hopefully they will get back to me.

Here in BC a lot of Yamaha dealers but they sell bikes, ATV, snowmobiles but have not noticed blowers. Good luck with your search and let us know what you end up getting.
