So I feel I am spoiling myself just looking at the deluxe 24 or Toro pm 826/824. Was just curious about the weight difference between the two brands.
As a 67yr old anything I replace air conditioner furnace appliance snow blower is not going to be as good as what I had so maybe if I upgrade (a little) it will last longer. Dam that 524 has been a trouble free blower but heck I desire something newer! Daughter says im to frugal.
If you were happy with your old Ariens 524 then the classic is a viable option. As far as HP it's doubtful after 35 years that your 524's engine was that efficient anymore so a new 208cc should bring you another 1-1.5 hp, and probably 2hp more than your old reliable 524. The Deluxe is nice though, with autoturn, bigger engine and tires it's the best way to go.

2017 Toro Power Clear 721R
2018 Simplicity Select 1024
