Super excited about this machine! Just found out about it today...wow its about time efi has found its way. Do you offer any military discounts at all? What about ariens financing? extended warranty they offer for 100 bucks? between the two efi models the pro has more "features" but is the joystick really worth it? or does a hand crank work well or better with gloves on? can you even notice the heated hand grips? sorry, lots of questions for a new machine, local dealer didnt even know they made EFI was trying to sell me last years model.
The one feature that makes the Platinum EFI model stand out over the Deluxe is the Super High Output (SHO) impeller system, which is capable of throwing snow further, and processing more at once. Both have heated handwarmers included, which are quite popular. Many customers buy the handwarmer accessory kit for units that don't come with them standard. The quick-turn joystick on the Platinum, compared to the crank is a bit more convenient. All-in-all, the Platinum EFI model is a more powerful, high performance machine, compared to the Deluxe EFI. However the Deluxe gives you a 30" clearing width compared to the Platinum's 24" width, if size is a factor for you. Currently we do not offer military discounts or financing for online purchases.
