Toro SnowMaster 724 QXE vs Toro Power Max 824 OE

Hey guys,
I'm a new homeowner and currently have a lousy single stage snow blower which I completely regret from last year, here in Western Wisconsin we got 60+ inches. I'm looking to upgrade and I seem to have it down to the Toro SnowMaster 724 QXE or Toro Power Max 824 OE. I picked Toro because I have a dealer here in town. They are both currently the same price. I have a normal 2 car garage size city lot blacktop drive way. The snow here tends to be different each snowfall, sometimes wet and sometimes fluffy. Just wondering what you guys reccomend!
Thanks!

from a former toro dealer, DON"T buy toro, quality is down the tubes since they started selling in box stores. if you can go ariens.
fyi!! my own 2 year old powermax is a rust bucket at every point that they weld sections together . from under the paint at those welds and where there is no way for powder coat paint to reach you will watch your money rust away

This guy, above, managed to blow up his engine in less than 10 hours and now has sour grapes since TORO turned down his claim...according to Toro he ran the engine on low oil or worse. I have the same model/year Toro machine and live within 3k feet of the ocean on salted roads. Machine is kept in a cold garage...machine never waxed or cleaned and it looks as good as the day I bought it. I'd take whatever this guy posts with a huge grain of salt.
