Just had a snowthrower engineer from Japan here today,discussiing the snowthrowers and the features and benefits,etc of Yamaha over Toro and Honda.
No snowblowers for the USA for 2010/2011 as of this time.
We have stock in Canada....on the floor already....give us a call toll free 877-414-0404 Speedy
I was told by The Yamaha United States headquarters in Calfornia that they had
absolutely NO intention of importing them to the United States of America period
when I wished to become and authorised distributor.
I do know that Honda in Canada has better machines than Honda in the lower 48. I have researched the reason why, Honda has told me it has to do with the hs1336 having an exposed auger. I guess the land of the lawsuit has discuraged the Japanese not do do buisness with us here in the lower 48. I would bet that Yamaha is in the same mind set on this issue. By luck I was able to get a couple units from Canada.
Apparently Yamaha USA was offered them but they declined for 2010/2011...that said, who knows what the future holds, so for the time being the "Great White North" has the good stuff........let me know if you need one.
How can you honestly say that when I contacted them
about becoming Yamaha distributor in the first place?
I made the effort to contact the Yamaha Main Office in California
and, I was directed to one of the east coast Yamaha representatives,
afterwhich, he contacted whoever was responsible for decision making;
wherein I was told that they had no intention of importing the new "Yamama made"
snowblowers and had no future plans to do so.
