My new Ariens 921048 (28" Deluxe SHO)

Just got her yesterday! So glad I went with the SHO model & the 28" bucket over 24" This machine feels very well balanced & is quite easy to maneuver while the motor is off. I tried the auto turn on my dry concrete & it works as it should. If it snows, I'll be ready!

Sweet new machine, I like the new dark grey metallic wheel finish and I am sure it's well balanced. Always a good move getting the Poly Skids. I don't know why Ariens doesn't include them as standard in lieu of the steel ones (probably too profitable as an accessory). A solid choice best of luck with it.

Erick, that looks great! We'll be anxious for your reviews once you've had it in snow.


Good luck !

Also about to pull the trigger on D28SHO, but also looking at a very lightly used Honda HS928TAS the same price. Need to decide in the next day or so...

I got mine setup, and even bought the poly skids for it yesterday. Have to install those yet. They were $34 at Home Depot.

Tough choice, really can't go wrong with either. If the Honda is 3 years old or newer I would probably choose the Honda. The tracked model is a beast with a tried and true reliability record in severe conditions.

I tend to lean towards "new" unless you know who owned it, and how it was treated.
