Simplicity Signature Pro Updates

Looks like Simplicity has updated the lighting and the chute-deflector control switch for the 2018-19 Signature Pro line. The line also has dual trigger steering. I'm not sure if the 2017's had the dual trigger or not. The chute control switch is a 3rd generation switch and looks like it should be very moisture resistant. http://www.simplicitymfg.com/na/en_u...onal-duty.html If you are looking at heavy duty pro quality, non hydro machines, then put the Signature Pro's on your list.

I think the Signature Pro chassis, (bucket) would need to change to accommodate a larger impeller. However the P1724 model still packs some punch with the Briggs & Stratton 1650 Professional Series™ Snow engine 420cc in a 24" width unit.

for 2800 bucks
not a hydro and a small bucket
that comparable to the 1400 buck ariens 24 sho that has more torque by a lil
how is the simplicity worth 2800 vs 1400 on sale 1499 not on sale 24 sho?

Wow, 24" and 420cc must be a monster! My 24" is 318cc OHV, and I have no complaints. I hope they have the impeller and augers RPM cranked up, to take advantage of that power.

The P1724 (1696927) lists for $1899.00 US. The $2800.00 you are seeing is the price in Canadian dollars. Look at the abbreviation just above the $2800 and you will see "CAN MAP".
Now back to my point, does anyone else have 420cc in a heavy duty chassis in a 24" width?

That's my point, it's one of the few on the market that can wear the name "professional".

looks like its rated at 16.50 ft lbs for 420 cc
the 24 sho is 17 ft lbs for 369 cc
based on there specs the ariens sho has slightly more power
imo the 24 sho should be 1300
i would never pay 1899 for a 24 bucket
or 1499 for the ariens sho 24
28 sho just likes to nice for 1249 with 15 ft lbs and hi speed impeller

It is nice to see that this year Toro and Simplicity have improved their 2-stage snow blowers. I think both companies are now much better positioned to compete against Ariens. This is a good thing as now all 3 brands are now “arguably” closely matched. Ultimately the consumer wins by getting a better product for their hard earned money. These are all good machines.
