Fantastic Piece of Professional EquiptmentThe Hydro Pro 28 is an impressive machine. If you are on the fence if the hydro-static transmission is worth it, or even the professional over the platinum... it's not even a decision, this is the way to go.
I spent way more than I originally planned to when I started shopping, but I didn't want to have any regrets since this isn't the type of purchase you can just bring back. After doing my research for two months I finally landed on the Hydro Pro 28" and build.com because it was the best deal around and after talking with a sales rep I was informed they ship directly from Ariens so there's no middle man involved. After ordering I had worry that I went for more than I should have.
Delivery was quick, it was in flawless shape and it was an easy setup with very clear instructions, you can google simple picture step-by-step setup instructions that are better than the Ariens papers.
Once setup, it started on first try, ran like a dream and a week later we had snow and this thing just eats it up like it doesn't exist without even slowing down the engine. it's a whole different experience with a 420cc engine and a 320+lb piece of equipment, coming from a old 5hp Craftsman it makes that old toy a joke. When I hit the end of the driveway where it was 18" of dense packed snow, the hydroPro just ate it up without any issue. My next snow I had some built up icy spots and I wanted to widen my first job, the augers just shaved and tossed large icy mounds like a snow cone machine without stopping.
The Hydro transmission completely changes the way you work, this must save 40 minutes off my job since 1/2 my work is not just up back, I have parking spots, side walks, cut outs in the driveway, and the ability to easily go from forward to reverse back to forward takes a 30 second activity and turns it into 2 seconds, repeat that 30 or 40 times and it's a big time saver. I could NEVER go back to an old fixed gear tranny again.
If you are uncertain - you won't regret it. it's a serious workhorse and I have a 18 degree 90 degree curved part to my driveway and this goes right up it ( I added the weight kit to keep the front down). so there's plenty of traction without chains or the tractor drive system.
When you compare this unit to a Platinum 32" you are talking about a 100+lb weight different, hydro tranny, significantly larger Briggs polar engine and better warranty... it's a significant upgrade and in my opinion worth every penny. I have no regrets going for this model after my first use, and now that I've used it 6 times and tonight another 6"-10" is forecasts, I have no worries that I'll just blast through it.
