So I've been running an Ariens for the past 30 or so years, my present machine is a ST1032, now this machine has been a workhorse but either I rebuild it again or think about a new one. I go through this every year and just end up fixing my machine. Yesterday I shoveled four and a half feet of snow off of the roof and the Ariens moved it without a hitch but the engine is getting kind of tired, I don't mind working on it but its not exactly a hobby for me and unless I go get the trailer and haul it to the shop I'm usually fixing it in ten degree weather. My question is this either the new Ariens Rapid track or the Honda: HSS1332ATD, I do have a relatively steep driveway and the machine has to be able to handle cement hard snow after its been pushed off of the roof. I just look at these new machines and wonder if they will hold up.
