New toy!

Hello all,

I just ordered my first snowblower, and I kind of went on the high side of things - a Platinum 30 SHO.

I discovered this forum last year when I stumped myself repairing a neighbours snowblower. I'm a mechanic by trade, but turbine engines are my thing. Maybe I'll convert an old girl into a real beast of a machine someday...

Cheers for now!!

LOL...turbine powered Ariens. You've already got a beast of a machine there, you let us know where you find it lacking in ability.
