I hope I have it for me, Ariens ST1027LE with auto turn kit and ball bearing mod on skids

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

I've been partial to Toro . . . probably a 724 model. I do like the maneuverability of the older 521's

Are you asking because you are in the process of buying, or just a curiosity?

My imaginary blower... cross breed Ariens construction, Honda performance, EGO 9.5HP electric engine, Husqvarna adjustable handles, 2Kwh of battery cells and a Tesla style charging port.

Otherwise a Honda HSS928ATD will do for my needs.

2017 Husqvarna ST224P
2005 Ariens ST1332DLE (sold)
2002 Craftsman 9HP 28" 88xxx (gave away)

Any Yamaha or Honda track drive, but "without" the tear drop auger housing!!!! The conventional rectangular or square faces housing allows dummys like me to go right up to the steps without chewing into them. The first time I used my Yamaha 624, I "discovered" the front porch steps, back porch steps, deck steps, main entry steps, and that if I lift up on the handles to shift the blower over a little bit the auger bites into the deck! After the "Big Melt" my wife was outside and noticed things, Oh The Horror! In defense of the blower, it never gave any indication it was chewing solids, it just did its thing, very aggressively
