Platinum 24 SHO

I just purchased a Platinum 24 SHO from SBD yesterday after our most recent and first snowstorm of the season over the weekend. I couldn't get my tiny Toro SS to start so I ended up having to get the shovel out. Not fun. Once I was done I went inside and began my research on an upgrade. It was time for an upgrade because the Toro can't handle 90% of what we get here anyway.

I can't wait to get it and will be sure to leave some reviews but I'm hoping I won't ever have to use it. Wishful thinking. :-)

Congrats, reviews of that machine has been widely positive. Can't argue with lots of power in a little package.

I was originally looking at a 28 or 30" Deluxe but opted for the 24 due to the bigger engine than the 30 and being the easiest to move around in tight spaces.

Congrats on the new unit. I just bought the Platinum EFI 24 today myself. I won't be sleeping tonight until it's delivered tomorrow.

I gotta ask though, what is SBD? I work at Stanley Black & Decker which abbreviated to SBD....we definitely don't sell blowers lol

Not many snowblowers fit that description, but I had a college roommate who gave meaning to that phrase.
