Pick up my new toy

Broke down and manned up and bought a 24 inch platinum SHO. First look it’s built like a tank and all I need is some snow.

Looks really nice. Just out of curiosity, how much did you pay?

Very nice looking machine, Kenneth Richard. You do realize now that you won't see a snowflake until next year!

Is there something special about the engines on the SHO models, other than the fact that they are larger than the regular Deluxe model?

I think the impeller speed is faster this using that extra power, If it was just more power it wouldnít be any higher output over the standard machine, So faster impeller and more snow through the machine.
