New Snow blower

I am looking to buy a new snow blower as my craftsman has just about given up. I can't decide between Simplicity M1227, Toro power max 826 OE or an Ariens Deluxe 28 any advice would be very helpful. Thanks

If you want something that will last and hold it's value go with the Ariens.

Each has feature that the other may not have like: Toro 826OE, I think it doesn't come with light and hand warmer,26" width impeller 12"
Ariens Deluxe comes with light but maybe not hand warmers,28" width impeller 14"
For Simplicty no lights 27"width. Impeller 12'
All these 3 machines are solid performers.
Good Luck

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Toro, ariens, both good blowers. I prefer Toro myself but either ine is fine blower. I don't really need any bells or whistles due to small amount of snow but lights and warmers would be a consideration in other areas of the country and the size of area you need to clean.

I like a light for the 1 or 2 night blows, had a snow blower for 18 years and never froze my hands yet, I wear mitts not gloves.

Thanks for the input. The guy at the hardware store and a guy who works for the city are the ones who told me about the simplicity I had never heard of them before. The hardware store has all 3 for roughly the same price I got the impression from them that the simplicity was the way to go. I have to wait until after Christmas before I buy one.
