    Nothing really new, just like Club Cadet selling Hisun as their own. Not a clone, just Yanmar reselling actual Yamaha Vikings rebranded.

    Yeah, but most of the others change many things. The name and wheels is the only change on these. It's even got the same Yamaha engine.

    Par for the course. Usually the engine\drive train\suspension are identical and the accessories and packaging are what's different.

    A quote from the Yanmar page.

    "This new line of products from YANMAR is the result of a partnership with Yamaha Motor Corporation as an expansion of the two companies’ global partnership in which they have worked together in the fields of industrial-use unmanned helicopters, generators and snow blowers."
