    The Ariens, by far. But, I would upgrade to the 420cc "Pro" series. Myself, I would choose the tracked 32" hydro pro. Big money, I know..

    Don't buy the rubber paddle huskies, there is only about an eighth inch of wear on the rubber cutting bar before it needs to be replaced.

    I hear you, I have no problem spending money for something worthwhile but I'm not sure what the major difference is between the Ariens Platinum SHO Snow Blower - 30" - 414cc and the Ariens Professional Snow Blower - 32" - 420cc Except $800 bucks. I figured Ariens was already a good product and the "platinum SHO" is already an elevated model. Can't see the $800 bucks for the "professional" unless I'm totally missing something.

    There's the obvious, then take a look at the specs,

    Hint, axel, drive system, I have no idea if it's worth it but, there it is.
