Hi everyone I’m new the forum and just purchased my first Yamaha blower January 2019. It’s definitely the best purchase I have ever made.

I just have one question. While moving it backwards in my garage to put up some shelving I realized only one of the locking pins was in and one wasn’t I realized this very quickly, shut off the blower put in the other pin and continued. Everything moved fine I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t any damage that could be done by moving this 4 feet backwards with only one pin engaged. I moved it again several times and everything seemed to be fine. Just double checking before I store it for the summer.
Thanks for any input on this !

Hello J Blade,

If you removed the locking pin that lets that beautiful snowblower move freely from what I remember as only one side of that beautiful snow mule has power from the transmission and the front sprockets are unpowered.

Thank you Leonz for the reply! Glad to hear it can’t be damaged that way not that I will make that mistake again.!

FYI. Keep those pins lubricated and maybe pull them out once in a while or they will rust in place I made a dolly for mine and then I had no need to play with the pins. Not that it was a mistake but I was ignorant as to how fast stuff rust. Didn't take long, now I spray them with rust check and pull them once in a while.



OH! leonz it is front wheel drive and rear sprockets are free wheeling.

It is still a beautiful blue snow mule. Coby did you bury the mailboxes this year or hit the plow truck with this years crop of snow?
