I have to agree with getting newer anyway, I have a 27” and feel a 30” is a little clumsy but that all depends on the driveway and storage space, Now is a good time to find a newer but used machine but brand new you’ll be hard pressed to find them being sold at all in most areas.
Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.
