(1978 / Snow Thrower)
Released in 1978, this was Yamaha Motor's first snow thrower. This engine-driven caterpillar-tracked machine was operated manually by the operator walking behind it. The rotating auger collects snow from the front and blows it out a few meters away through a chimney shaped thrower. It had an operating capacity of 35 tons per hour, and was characterized by its safety features, ease of use and maintenance-free structure. Because of the distinctive color of the model, Yamaha snow throwers came to be known as the "Blue Snow Throwers." On display is the 1979 model.
