OLD Blue YS624 - How much would
Original Message   Dec 12, 2012 9:43 pm
I found a Old Blue YS624T. A brief look looks like I would rate it a 8.5 out of 10 on a conservative scale.
Seller says it was only used last year for a couple hours max.
Old Blue sorta reminds me of Target Tile Saws ......it was a baby blue color tlle saw, one of the best out there, sold/merged over years of time.

It's a possible 15+ year old machine
Parts is probably $$$

This is Not old Nabble.
Bearing the condition stated, how much would you offer for the old Yammmy

Care to discuss horses for horses how it would run to current 24" HP offerings...

Don't have an opinion on price because they are few & far between. My concern would be replacement parts, you would be very limited for sources so cost would be high.

FYI, they are asking from $850 to $1600 for the used (various conditions) YS624's on sale here in Quebec

Cheers

GtWtNorth: My concern would be replacement parts
 
   Parts are very available from many places (boats.net), all OEM and often from Japan in 6-7 days.  Prices are generally reasonable outside of special parts of low quantity like starters $600-$800.  For a US person that's staggering but for a Japanese guy who's gotten 15 years out of his machine and expects another 15, not that bad but he probably gets those parts for much less.   He also has a shot at fab'ing one from a low cost generic part and swapping out the end mount and gear.  I tried that here but no-go.

  YS624T's and 824's generally range $300-$500 in New England.  There's a very nice 624T on CL for $650 which seems reasonable.  I'm selling an YS624 wheeled for $500 with a rebuilt engine that's guaranteed.  The engine came out with max compression and sounds great.  The rest of the machine has been gone through.  Also an 824T with a night light for $450 that's been gone through.   I'm holding back a YS824TEN for myself to muck with over the winter.

   I posted about the Yamaha rebuild last year but worth mentioning again how nice the Yamaha engine is inside and out.   There's just no comparison to a Briggs or Tecumseh or even the tough to fault Honda engines.  They were pricy in their day and worth it.
