Any Recommendations?

Looking to buy an Ariens. My budget is about 2k. Looking for the best overall Ariens in that price range that can move some serious material. Currently considering the 921029 Platinum 30 and 926038 Pro 28. Any opinions?

I have the pro 28, I bought it even though it is far more blower than I need. I liked the heavier construction.
Otherwise the Platinum 30 is great choice also. 414cc engine as opposed to the Pro's 420cc Brigs engine. Both engines made in china but the Brigs is made in it's own plant brigs plant.

Pro 28 Solid shaft no need for brace, ball bearing instead of bushings. That kinda stuff.
I'm sure a few guy here will be able to explain the differences much better than I.

You can't really go wrong with either of those machines. Personally, I would go with the Pro 28

1972 Ariens 13/32 restored & repowered
1971 Ariens 7/24 (retired)
2011 Ariens Deluxe 24
1980 Ariens st7/24 (retired)
1985 Ariens st10/36
