Is it just me or does it appear that mid-way through the race (have a look about at about 2:20) the Honda is not cutting as deeply as the Ariens? It appears at the beginning of the race that the Honda has a slightly deeper bucket, maybe an inch or so, but mid-way through, the Honda bucket is several inches higher in the snow than the Ariens, thus leaving more snow on the ground. An impressive showing by the Ariens, IMO.

It looks like they will have to change the the old saying nothing beats an Honda,now it will say nothing beats an Ariens,VROOM VROOM!!!!!!
The Honda was defiantly rising of the groundup at 2 minutes into the run,it wasn't clearing all the snow like the Ariens, plus at the end it was struggling,like it had something lodged in it's throat lol.ok about at about 2:20) the Honda is not cutting as deeply as the Ariens?

They both appear to have 28" buckets, but the Ariens has a larger auger and a taller bucket so I think that's the pro model.
The Honda I don't know if it's the top of the line comparable model.

European machines, I can't find specs.

You never see the control panel of the Honda - I don't think it was on full throttle.

You guys left out one very important detail. The Ariens operator it working hard to keep the bucket down enough to clear a path for its tires to have traction. The Honda guy is just chillin and letting the machine do the work.

The ariens may have won the battle, but the Honda won the war.

Sounds like when a ricer loses a street race. All the excuses come flowin' out. "my tune isn't right"..."I didn't get the right gas"...etc...

Must be a Honda thing....

(joking, relax)
