Brought home new Deluxe 28

Just brought home a new Deluxe 28, I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

I'm wondering though, besides oil and gas, are there any other things that are recommended to prepare this new machine for it's inaugural winter season? For example add-ons, wax, changing the metal skids, etc.

I just brought home the same model yesterday!
I fired her up for the first time today. Love the smell of the manufacturing oils burning off the motor.
I picked up the Ariens non-stick spray and applied a coat to the chute and bucket area. I also have a set of composite skid shoes on order, and will install them shortly. I read they really help, and I don’t want to scratch up part of a newly paved driveway.
I’m planning on installing some LED lights. Lots of examples on you tube.
Can’t wait for the snow!!!

I just got a Plat 24. Had the dealer install the poly skids, and they gave me a handful of extra shear bolts

Here are the photos of my new machine. I swapped out the OEM skid shoes for Arnold Poly Slide Shoes. They look nice, I hope they last.

Dos522,
Kyle you post a photo of those poly skid shoes? I was concerned that they wouldn’t fit due to the rib in the bucket sheet metal keeping it from sitting flush near the leading edge. Looks like you just installed it further back on the bucket.

@Dos,

Looking good … your in business now … I change all my blowers to poly skids when they need replacing.

I am even trying a poly skid with a wheel in it, as they were on sale for 20.00 for the pair.

Here are some close ups of the skid shoes. I just installed them according to the instructions, I didn't even consider that rib/lip on the edge. I think it'll be ok though...fingers crossed.

I'm jealous of your chute controls.
