Answer: 
Effortless, unthinking Steering is the biggest difference. Platinum models also come with better wheels. Once you go with the triggerless steering, you will never again go back. It truly is akin to the old clutch vs automatic question in cars. (For those us who are a certain age)

Answer: 
Automatic tracton control on the platinum models. Heated hand grips and more aggressive tires. Fast chute control from the dash board also. Deluxe models have a trigger operated diff lock to unlock one wheel for turning. Hand crank chute control that you must operate in front of the dash board to turn the chute. The tires are cheaper and less traction than the platinum models.

Answer: 
It comes with a pull start and has provisions for electric start if you plug an extension cord to electrical connnection by the starter. I've yet to use the electric start as it always starts easily with the pull start.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by platinum 24 Great machine only used it once on a four inch storm. I gotta say that I love the tracton control feature that best. Very easy to steer and turning, no effort needed. Heated hand grips kept my hands warm that day. Solid steel all a round. Cast iron gear box with a 5 year warranty. Quality made snowblower and still made in the good old USA.. February 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Snowblower Took delivery about two months ago and have been biting at the bit for snow. 12/29 (yesterday) we received a 12" snowstorm and I started my new Ariens Platinum 24" right up w/one easy pull. It worked flawlessly and never got bogged down..even down where the road meets the driveway. Threw the snow 30 feet high and 50 feet out and blew through the 12" of snow without a hiccup. Best purchase I ever made and glad I did enough research to know that Ariens is THE BEST!!. 5 Stars. December 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First Blizzard w/ Ariens 921017 WOW !! A Blizzard has been the first snowfall for my new ariens snowblower. No better test for any type of snow removal equipment than a nasty 1.5 ft wind driven snowfall. After checking all items on my start up list the unit started manually with no problem on the first pull . The amount of power this unit has made quick work of the deepest snow drift and made clearing the mouth of my driveway easier than its ever been. It throws snow as advertised {50 feet}. The heated handles kept my hands warm during the entire time I was working. A beast of a machine and pleasure to use under the most adverse conditions. December 27, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 24" Platinum Ariens Home Depot were great and they helped me order this model online. Consumer service couldn't have been better. I just got it on the 23th of December. A xmas gift to myself. Well we haven't got any snow yet so don't know how good it will work but I have used Ariens blowers before and they were great power and blows the snow far. I like the fact of all metal and not plastic like some other brands. I love the quick chute rotations handle that's allsome.. Ariens is number one snowblower on the planet. Can't beat the warranties either.. Thanks Ariens for making such a great machine.. December 24, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Appears to be a great machine, although haven't used it in snow yet. This is a very impressive machine. I wanted all the bells and whistles, but also wanted a machine narrow enough to do sidewalks as well as the driveway. This fits the bill. The assembly instructions are not the clearest, but a little thought takes care of the rough spots. Machine starts easily and runs very well. Most impressive is how well it handles. Before I actually ran it I had some trepidation as it certainly is a big, heavy piece of equipment, but a quick run put those fears to rest. Now I can't wait for a real blizzard! September 7, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Ariens Deluxe Platinum 24" snowblower from Home Depot arrived on time and completely assembled. There was a demonstration on operating the unit and all questions I had were answered in detail. This unit was chosen after a several month selection process. I have no doubt this unit will exceed all of my expectations and perform in any and all snow conditions. Additional reviews will follow after the arrival of those first flakes. Think Snow !!!! November 24, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The real deal! From the moment the machine was delivered I knew that iI had made the right choice.The driver went through everything in great detail.No question was to small to ask because I never owned a snow blower before.The machine came fully assembled ,ready to go.This is a quailty built machine that has lots of extra power.I didn't want plastic parts that wouldn't last.So I'll enjoy throwing snow for next 20 years. September 18, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, waiting for snow to see how it performs The Ariens platinum series appears to be a well built snowblower with a lot of features, however we received it in early October 2012 and until we get snow we will not really know how it performs. All things appear to work well when trying it in dry (no snow) conditions, but will not be sure until we get our first substantial snow which may not be until year's end. October 31, 2012
