Re: Why would Yamaha underpower a $4000.00 375lb snowblower...or did they??

Thanks aa335 for the reply!! Seeing you asked i have to admit i have no snowblower experience as of yet and I was just curious because the numbers just seemed less than all of the other brands you see around the stores this time of year.I was always of the mind set that more power is good(my Tim the tool man flaw)...lol. Maybe the quality of the manufacturing and the efficient use of power is something Yamaha has figured out.I know the older Yamaha's were awesome so I guess Yamaha has proven themselves in the past so we will see how the newer ones fair. Maybe the hydro drive and electromagnetic clutch reduce the power needs of this machine and put more power where its needed more efficiently?? Thanks JAMIE

Seems odd to me that Yamahas ys928j is built with  a  mz250e engine that produces only 251cc's?? Why make such an expensive machine that weights so much and include such a underpowered engine?

Everything at home depot and the big box stores sell machines at 1/4 the cost with almost twice the engine displacement...whats up with that??

Now the quality is top notch but as an owner of this snowblower I can't say that  im  not  a little concerned about its soon to be seen performance.

Jamie.

I remember reading an older post on here where somebody made reference to the older Yamahas and how the auger was driven of the cam shaft and they had lots of torque.
I'm no mechanic by any means I just assumed this was different than most blowers??

Do the newer yamahas use gear reduction like the older ones did? Maybe this is why only a 250cc engine is used????

Yeah it's odd for there flagship model? Must be something special with the engineering as it seems to throw snow a mile?
