I just received the snow blower today. However, no snow to really get it going just yet. I do live in an area where the white glove delivery was not available, so it was shipped via curbside delivery. The driver who delivered it was nice enough to land it in my garage, but know that they are NOT required to do this.
Upon opening the box it took me just shy of 30 minutes to get it all put together. The assembly instructions are very straight forward, and it's fairly easy to figure out where everything goes.
I fueled it, checked oil, ran through checks with all of the components, primed it, and it fired right up. Once it's had a few minutes to warm-up and break it, it runs very smooth. I was quite surprised by the power when I got on the fasted forward speed. In regards to the headlight, it is what it is. I am not sure the headlight will serve a big purpose, but I suppose it's nice to have!
I have had to contact Ariens support a couple of times and they've been great each and every time. Very nice and friendly, and easy to work with. The factory warranty is also a great deal!
So far, I'm very pleased with the purchase.

The Arens Compact 24 inch two-stage snow blower was delivered expertly and started right up. I had expected a curb side delivery but this was a white glove experience. The snow blower came fully assembled with oil added and a full gas tank. It was delivered and operation was fully explained. I could not have been more satisfied. The delivery jumped this item from average to a good value since the other on-line stores I looked at charged additional fees for basic delivery and even more for white glove handling. The overall price with home delivery was $200 less than the next best vendor's price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gorp52 Replaced a 16 year old Toro that cracked piston head this past winter.
I ordered on line, it shipped in five days with White glove delivery to my driveway, prepped and ready to go gas tank even full, I could not have asked for better service.
I did a lot of shopping and comparisons on line and in person before I ordered The features and reputation of Ariens made the decision easy I will add to the review after a good snow.
