Groveland, Massachusetts: Muffler Man Formerly Named Yvon

One of the suspiciously shrimpy Bunyan Muffler Men, a slightly different model than the original. Used to have a hard hat, ax, and a shirt with "Yvon" on it, but these have been removed.

Valley Tree Service

938 Salem St., Groveland, MA
Two miles southeast of town on Salem St./Hwy 97. Snuggled into the trees along the entrance drive to Valley Tree Service, on the north side of the road. Impossible to see driving west, so look for Pub 97 on the south side, across the street.

His axe is gone. His blind white stare...? A little creepy!

Now he just plays air axe.

This muffler man is back. "Yvon" has been scratched off the shirt. The axe appears to be slightly damaged.

Was very excited to see this landmark since there are not a lot of Muffler Men nearby, but the Muffler Man had been sold, no longer at this location. New location unknown.

Muffler Man - Axe Wielding "Yvon"

Here's a new picture of Yvon. Guess he lost his hard hat.

[Tracy Hale, 05/21/2006]

Whenever we visit this Muffler Man, we're always surprised by his small size (at least for Muffler Men). And that ax looks like it's whacked one tree too many....
