Powered by a proven, reliable and fuel efficient 171cc, air-cooled, OHV, 2-valve, 4-stroke, 6 hp Yamaha MZ175 engine. Transistor controlled T.C.I. electronic ignition means sure fast starts and never needs maintenance. Quiet design muffler will keep the neighbors happy.
CONVENIENT ELECTRIC STARTING
Convenient key operated electric start backed up by a manual recoil starter with an automatic decompression device to reduce pull effort.
POWERFUL DUAL-STAGE AUGER
Dual-stage 615 mm (24") auger utilizes a heavy duty serrated steel "blade" to chew through hard packed snow and ice without breaking a sweat. The clearing height is 440 mm (17"). The high speed impeller located in the resin lined chute fires snow up to 15 meters (49 ft.). The YT624EJ can move up to 35 tons of snow per hour.
HYDRAULIC ASSIST AUGER HOUSING TILT SYSTEM
Hydraulic assist adjustable auger housing means you can adjust the auger housing height. You can add "additional" bite into the snow or set it to just skim the pavement or raise it in the event of loose gravel or an uneven interlock driveway. NOTE: The more "bite" that is added increases the risk of damage to the auger, its housing and the surface you are clearing.
ADJUSTABLE "SKIDS" AND SERRATED SNOW SCRAPER
The adjustable (and replaceable) "skids" allow you to pre-set the auger height to avoid damage to the auger and its housing. The serrated snow scraper helps break up ice and hard packed snow as it enters the auger system.
The durable, single lever operated, hydrostatic transmission (HST) provides precise speed control and smooth shifting. This variable speed transmission allows the unit to move forward at speeds up to 3.2 km/hr. and up to 2.45 km/hr. in reverse. Easy access remote HST fluid reservoir makes checking and topping up the fluid level quick and easy.
Rubberized track drive system plows through snow conditions that stop other blowers cold. Track drive provides superior traction on steep driveways or laneways and also makes it possible to climb stairs. The tracks are 130 mm (5.1") wide. Wheeled blowers don't even compare.
ELECTRIC RESIN LINED CHUTE
The resin lined chute is electronically controlled by an easy to use joystick and has a turning radius of up to 220°, so you can direct the snow just about anywhere. The resin lining helps to reduce snow sticking and build up.
ADJUSTABLE CHUTE DEFLECTOR TIP
The resin lined chute features an adjustable, lever operated discharge tip that allows you to control how far the snow is thrown.
Special shear bolts are designed to help prevent damage to the auger and housing in the event it comes in contact with a solid object. The replaceable shear bolts are designed to break / shear off if the auger comes in contact with a solid object, saving the auger and transmission from expensive damage.
EASY TO USE CONTROLS
The centrally located control levers are grouped together for easy access.
ADDITIONAL STANDARD FEATURES
Clean-out tool to remove accumulated snow and 23 watt, 6-LED work light for those early morning jobs.
