Identify rebalanced 28 SHO

How do I tell for sure that a model 921048 28 deluxe SHO is one of the new ones with the axle moved forwards? I can't seem to find any help on this. Is there a measurement I can take?

If it has the new logo it is the rebalanced one. The old logo is the circle with Ariens inside, the new logo is a green background with ARIENS written in big white letters. Hope this helps!

If it's model 921048, it's the rebalanced unit. The prior model number was 921044, which had the old logo, as noted above.

It's also a pretty noticable difference when you push down on the handles.

In addition to all of the differences previously posted the new model also has a darker grey paint finish on the wheels. That is a nice machine you are looking at, please post some pics once you've taken delivery.

Grey background, not green..

2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2016, Orange Ariens logo on the dash:



Beginning in 2017, current model year, Grey panel with ARIENS in white lettering:



there is a slight greenish tint in that photo, and a few other on-line photos, but thats just some digital photo color tint happening..but they are really neutral grey..its clear here:
