Toro vs Ariens vs Cub Cadet

Hi all,

Toro Power Max 824 OE vs Ariens 920025 vs Cub Cadet 31AM5BSR596

I cant decide witch one to buy. I like the Toro joystick. Reliability is the most important thing for me.

Thank you!

Given those three machines IMHO I'd likely go with the Toro since the other two have 208cc engines and the Toro comes with a 252cc. In a quick search it's only $100 more than the Ariens and it's $100 less than the Cub.

Toro definitely. Bigger 252cc engine, quickstick, unibody chassis. Iíve used the Ariens classic and a similar cub cadet model and Iím not a fan of either.

Now if we were talking the Ariens 24Ē Deluxe.....but thatís probably out of your price range since you didnít list it. Anyways, between those three specific models definitely the Toro. I have the 826 OAE which is basically the same model with a bigger bucket and automatic steering. Iíve been very impressed with it.

Thank you for fast comment. I have a small driveway. Maybe about 2 cars wide and 2 cars long so I dont need a big machine.

Thank you for fast comment and yes, they are all within a 150$ difference

Welcome!

Iíd choose the Toro out of the three. If $999 is in the budget I think an Ariens Compact 24 will do a nice job. Much better built than the Ariens Classic 24.

They say the motor knows when to shut itself down before damage can occur to the gearbox.
