I'm An Owner!

As of today, my forum friends, I am the proud owner of a brand new Ariens Platinum 24 Sno-Thro. Serial number 0001992, which the dealer said means it is one of the first 1000 to roll off the line. A buddy of mine decided he wanted a Platinum 24 too, so we went in together and squeezed and extra $50 bucks per unit out of the dealer. That along with the extra 2 years warranty leaves me pretty well set. I ordered drift cutters and a cab while I was there too.
I must thank all of my forum friends for the all of the help and patience with my stupid questions since last March when I realized that it was time for a snowblower and found this forum.
Gracias Amigos!

Thanks Mr.P. I'm pretty impressed with your Blue Beast as well.
Out here in the West, they used to have tractor pulling contests and plowing matches, where the farmers could put their machines and back in the real old days, their teams of horses, against those of their neighbours to see who could pull the most. Wouldn't it be cool to have a snow-blowing contest to see which machines, on equal footing, could move the most snow? I'd sign up for that in a heartbeat.

Yup, that's one of the first things I looked for. . I can tell the auto-turn is going to come in real handy too. It makes it so maneuverable, I could take it to a dance!

Awesome machine Blue Hill. Apart from Honda and Yamaha, Ariens Platinum is right up there with the best of them. The regular Ariens I am not so fond of though.

Congrats on a great purchase, wishing you lots of snow.
