921036 vs 921028

Hello all,

Been reading a lot and wanted some opinions.

These two are about the same price now so I was wondering what you guys thought about the two. I have a paved driveway with concrete sidewalks. I currently have a 21" Troy built 208 cc single stage I bought at lowes and I am tired of swearing at it everytime the plow goes by so I want to get some more artillery this winter.

Thoughts on these two.

I like the USA made engine on the 28" but it may be kinda big for me, not sure. What other pros and cons do these have.

Is there something worth waiting for as far as the 2015 models? Rather than these two?

Was also considering the cheaper 24 but it seems like a few extra bucks to step up to one of these May be worth it, still not sure on that either.


Thanks

BB

if this makes it easier,

This is the 24" platinum SHO vs the deluxe 28 with the 342CC made in USa motor

does the platinum line have better internals or something over the deluxe?

it has to be more than just hand warmers

Also, just FYI, my driveway is paved and is 50 feet long and 30 feet wide at the top and then narrows a bit at the end, plus sidewalks. The plow throws a 1/2 block worth of snow since I don't have any neighbors in that direction. I seem to get dumped on every-time he goes buy which my single stage has a hard time with.

In my opinion, either one of these machines will be a HUGE improvement over your Troy Built.

The platinum will have a different dash lay out than the deluxe, biggest difference will be the chute direction crank. Platinum will have more of a joy stick on the dash. The Deluxe you will have to lean into the motor area to crank it. Some people have issues with that.

Personally, I would go with the Deluxe and have a 4 wider cut

2014 Ariens Deluxe 30 #921032 w/Armor skids, LED's, Hand warmers.
2015 Ariens Path Pro SS-21 # 938033
2010 Toro 1800 Power curve (electric, for the deck)
2009 Toro Power Shovel (electric, for deck steps)

thanks, I can't seem to find a photo of the dash sections yet.

Is there any difference in any of the internals?

Might be a good bet, If you see the thread by Locallawncare, he says:

So you'll definitely get more oomph for those piles at the end without jumping up to a larger unit.
