Advice needed on Simplicity P1724

I'm going to be pulling the trigger on a snowblower in the next month or two, and hoping to get some feedback here on the P1724.
I think a 24" is fine for me, and am torn between the Simplicity P1724 and the Honda HSS724.

I was told that Simplicity 'sold out' to Briggs, and the quality on all machines has gone way down over the last 10 years or so. Not one to believe everything I'm told, I was hoping you folks here could advise on Simplicity in general as well as the P1724.

Simplicity P1724 had heated grips - something the Honda doesn't have.

Any advise/information would be welcomed.

The Signature Pro line is still very high quality. Great machines, ready to take on anything. Save hundreds of dollars by passing on the over priced Honda and getting a better more powerful machine with the Signature Pro.
