I was worried after I placed my order that I had actually ordered last years model. I called Jacks and discussed this with them. They assured me I would be getting the 2015 SHO Platinum model, which has a larger engine. I was thrilled when it showed
up, quick shipment. Only disappointment was that UPS came way erlier than the agreed upon time slot and they just left the pallet on my patio. The box was completely busted open on top and exposed. Luckily, I check everything out from the top and no damage.
A miracle. This snow blower is a beast. Can't wait for the first storm. Last year here in Hamburg NY we got 80-inches in 2 days.
