Toro 824 OE
Here’s the issue and I am going to be as non biased as possible. Reading over this thread everyone who recommends the ariens owns one. That’s a bias opinion it’s circular reasoning and it’s a fallacy. It doesn’t mean ownership of a Ariens is bad you are getting a bias opinion. For me I would subjectively look at the individual features each one offers. What you like about each one, and what you don’t like about each one. New vs used. Three features of toro that I love. 1 no shear pins On my street only one person owns a orange painted snow blower and every time he’s clearing his driveway he’s changing a shear pin. 2nd feature I like is the quick stick don’t have to hand crank the chute. 3rd is the anti clog feature heavy wet snow no problem. If there’s a fourth reason I like Toro is the customer service from my dealer.
