Making America Great Again, One Snowblower At A Time.
I purchased this snow-blower to replace a 21 year old Ariens. I looked at the offerings in the big box stores and it looked like there were too many plastic parts on what they were selling. They also had engines made in China.

I looked at both the Simplicity and the Ariens professional models. I went to two different shops that sold both and both told me that the Simplicity is the better machine. I looked at the Simplicity Signature pro and liked the heavy duty handles and controls. No... more
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Reliable, High Quality

"Snow Blowers Direct let me know when the delivery date was. The freight company called me and we arranged a date and time for delivery. He showed up on time and we loaded it into my garage. It looked to be in good condition. It took me a while to uncrate it. I also had to install the headlight. I checked the oil and found it was full. I started it on the first crank and it ran great. The problem was when I tried to stop it, the ignition switch did not work. The spark plug is hidden away behind a shield but there is a fuel line shutoff that I turned off. It ran out of gas in a couple of minutes. I called Snow Blowers Direct who directed me to Simplictity who told me to bring it to the nearest Briggs and Stratton dealer. It was a loose wire that they fixed right away."

My First Ever Snowblower!
I sheared the pins my second time out, a rock wedged in the blades. Both storms were two-plus foot of snow and the P-1728E went right through, the very wet heavy snow. First time out I had the ground skids set as far down as they would go and the blower tended to ride up and over top of snow. So I lowered the skids and the blower went right through the heavy wet snow (two and a half foot deep), the second storm we had.

This unit is being used in Colorado mountains on dirt road. So far... more
Pros: High Quality, Features, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

Starts So Easily
We just received this item in Upstate NY near the Canadian border so we expect to get a lot of use but haven't so far this year because its yet to snow. Point I'd like to make for now is how convenient and reasonably fast delivery was. AND, so importantly, it is thankfully so different than the Ariens snowblower I had before in the way it instantly starts with the pull chain. If it was like the Ariens, we'd need to prime and use the electric starter and hope it would start (which it... more

A Quality, High Performance Machine, Easy To Use
This machine replaced a 1984 Simplicity that I could not obtain auger gearbox parts for. I have always been impressed with Simplicity-Briggs quality, (this is my 3rd machine).

The performance of this new machine certainly shows that Simplicity continues to strive for excellence in their equipment designs. Easy access, & functionality of all the starting, & operating controls.

The variable torque drive for the impeller works well in heavy-wet snow. Fantastic! Also, I was... more
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Durable, Easy To Use
Cons: Chute control switches could be better located for thumb oper..

Simplicity Pro P1728
If you are confuse in buying a Simplicity Signature Pro or a Ariens Pro snow blower me and my best friend have owned both and we both had nothing but issues with the Ariens Pro machine. We both sold the Ariens and purchased Simplicity snow blowers.

I purchased the Simplicity Signature Pro P1728 and my friend purchased the Simplicity Signature Pro P2138E both machine work awesome never had a issue, we live in New England and we had a bad winter last year. I'll never buy another Ariens.... more
