Same Price for D24 and a D28 Model, Question

A local store has the Deluxe 28 and the Deluxe 24 both for 999. I have my head set on the Deluxe 24 (Power to Size Ratio) but if the 28 is the same price does it sound worth it even though I have the chance of not having a good amount of power with that size?

I know it wont hurt anything having the 28, just wondering if I should go with my gut as I dont know of any difference between the 24 and 28 other then snow munching end.

Smile I'm in CNY too...

Kirkville to be exact. Maybe Cardo will weigh in here, think he had a 28" and went to a 24" because the 28" motor wasn't powerful enough. The 2 you're looking at both have 254cc engines whereas the SHO 28 has a 306 cc engine, would make a definite difference.

Heavy wet snow, more HP per width. Also factor in ease of maneuvering especially around parked vehicles.

I would lean towards the 24, or look for more HP in a different 28.

Thats what my gut has said about the 24 but the 28 was enticing for the same price.
