Hello I’m new to the forum looking to replace my craftsman 24 inch 208cc 88640 model with either a Husqvarna or ariens machine. I have done reviews on each but I’m having a hard time pulling the trigger on one or the other. I know the quality of the ariens is second to none but the Husqvarna ST227P and st230p have intrigued me. Looking for some opinions on each company good or bad. Ariens model i was looking at was the platinum 24 sho or the deluxe 24. Thanks a lot. They both seem well built better than the current craftsman I have which does a good job just want something that won’t bog as much in heavier wet snow. I also thought about the cub cadet 3x but I’m not sold on the 3rd auger design so much. Thank you in advance.
