Hi there. I have been looking for an upgraded snowblower and I think I have it narrowed down between the Deluxe 28 SHO and the deluxe 28. Here in Anchorage the SHO costs 1600 and the regular deluxe costs 1100. Is it worth 500 for the SHO? It seems like a lot? The SHO is from a dealer that couldn't answer any of my questions and just handed me a flier for Ariens. The deluxe 28 is from Home Depot and I found out who they use for warranty and talked with the owner to verify that they will handle any warranty I would need. I am replacing a 5hp 24" toro storm and it seems to do ok but is pretty underpowered. What do you guys think? I don't want to settle and I don't want to feel like I overpaid, if that makes sense. Is the SHO 1/3 better? Thanks for any advice.
