Just pulled the trigger

Hi all. It's been a real process here. I registered here Christmas Eve but for whatever reason the posts I made never showed up. I ended up having to spend more time reading posts here. Lol. I was torn between toro and ariens and was making myself crazy going back and forth looking for information. The good thing was I was able to narrow my search down to ariens. Fast forward I decided to go with the 24 deluxe. I have another post about my needs and the dealer experience. I think it finally showed up. Thanks to the moderators for helping after I emailed them. I had the dealer add the warmers and was supposed to pick it up tomorrow.

While I was going over the brochure and some more research I decided that I would be better served with the 24 plat sho, non efi. Called the dealer and it's a done deal. I pick up my new machine tomorrow. They are prepping it as we speak. Dealer has been great. Very excited. Thanks to all who indirectly helped me. Great info here. Anything special I should check when I pick it up? Thanks. Steve

Congratulations, May she serve you well for many years.

Does the dealer start all the blowers they sell and check that all the adjustments are right and everything works?
I never bought one from a dealer so I don't know.

Try to get them to toss you a few spare shear bolts?
For free, I would.

I hate shoveling SNOW!

I prefer poly skids over metal. You might want to look into them.
