First use, 921048 - Deluxe 28 SHO

Just some first impressions for what it's worth.

This snowblower replaced a worn out early 90's Craftsman, so that's my point of reference.

- great power, throws snow way farther than I'm used to, obviously a good thing, but I need to get used to it.

- auto turn is a little twitchy for me, my previous machine had a solid axle, but I think I will be fine with this.

- I have no choice but to reverse the machine in some spots, and as with my old machine, reverse is too slow for my liking. So I just pull it, and I wish the Ariens had handles across the machine instead of in-line. It would be easier to pull this way, and better going forward as well, IMHO.

- They could have made the oil drain tube a bit longer, and the flats for holding the tube while taking the cap off are oriented the wrong way.

But those are quibbles, I already love this machine!
