Customer Questions & Answers

When will it be in STOCK??

I have been waiting for this particular model since middle of Nov. I called and I was told that stock is expected to be available in the first week of Dec. I have called a few times since then and was told the same story. I patiently waited until the first week of December (today) and called again...only to find out that stock availability is delayed by another TWO weeks. I live in MN and can't wait any longer. I have a bunch of HD gift cards to burn and would like to spend my money at HD than some local Ariens dealer. Can someone from HD / Ariens give an authoritative answer on when it is TRUELY expected to be in stock? HD sales associate online tried to sell me a 20% off on a 3 stage Cub Cadet instead....but I trust and believe in Ariens. However, snow is not going to wait either....The 24" is the only model that will work for my garage so 28" model is not an option. When WILL Ariens have it in stock for HD?
Asked by: TheBigDogz
I just received my third E-mail telling me to buy this product at Home Depot. What a tease... They should stop sending people E-mails advertising that they can deliver the product before the weather gets warm. Almost like false advertising.

When is HD going to get the Auto Turn models for this deluxe 24?

Currently, this model states that it is still pin lock steering. I am ready to buy, but don't want to buy the one with pin lock.
Asked by: GA28
Use & care manual also states pin lock and needs to be updated.

What's the horse power?

Asked by: Casper
A rough rule of thumb for figuring HP from cc's is; 33cc=1 HP. This machine has 254cc. So, divide 254cc by 33cc and you get ABOUT 7.5. 7.5 HP more or less.

Electric start: battery or plug in

To use the electric start, does the machine have to be plugged into an electric outlet or does it have a chargeable battery pack?
Asked by: DdeV
You plug it into an ordinary (orange) grounded extension cord, press the start button on the machine and it starts right up.

Deluxe 24 in. 2-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with Auto-Turn Steering is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 511.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine! I have used many a snow blower in my days but used this for the first time in upstate NY in 10" of wet heave snow. Had to use the slowest speed but it had no issues on a 100 foot long driveway. It throws snow about 40 feet out so no worries about snow banks. Hand warmers worked fantastic. Now on the con side- headlight is marginal and it has a small gas tank. Had to refill once. It did get clogged once but that is not unusual with a wet heavy. Auto turn makes it very easy to handle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure I would go for this brand again. It has typically been difficult to start, even when plugged in. Usually takes about 15 minutes or more to get started no matter the choking, or the pressing of the squirter. Seems like the fuel lines are inferior in this brand, as the fuel seems to have problems reaching the engine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Auto Turn Steering only works on flat driveways The Deluxe 28 SHO has nice power and gets through just about anything, but the auto steering is horrible. My driveway has some small bumps and grooves and the auto steering makes the machine try to turn when I don't want it to. It's almost uncontrollable. I talked to Shepherds in Townsend, MA where I bought it and they said it's a problem they've been hearing about. They're interim solution was to have me raise the blade. Now I have to scrape my driveway with a shovel after snowblowing if I want to get it down to pavement! They put me on a list with other customers so that they could talk to their Ariens Rep. Never heard from anyone. Ariens has to come up with a fix to lock the wheels and turn off the auto steer. Nice idea, very bad design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this machine again. I Give the 24" Deluxe 4.5 stars for the following reason. I had the blower in Nov 2016, used it twice and after the second time it was leaking red fluid from the gear box. I got it repaired being under 5 yr warranty. (faulty seals). Had a wintry mix ice, snow and sleet... ran great no issues. Just had a major storm up here in the Northeast (Maine) got over 20 inches 02/17...ran like a champ ran thru everything anad threw it quite a distance...made my day that's for sure....quite pleased....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, very durable and extremely reliable. This was my first snowblower purchase. After reading countless reviews regarding the features and dependability I deemed necessary in a snowblower, I determined the Ariens 24" Deluxe would be the perfect machine. It started right up and functioned perfectly in the midst of our first 12" snow storm. I quickly learned how to maneuver the snowblower to effectively clear out my driveway and sidewalk. I had such a great time with this, my first snowblower, I ran out of gas twice because I cleared out my neighbors sidewalks and driveways. I told my wife I wanted to "break it in." I am most satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awkward handling You can release the right side auger handle with left hand wheel control engaged and the augers will stay engaged. It is then awkward to reach with right hand across to adjust chute direction on the left side. It also does not slide very well on packed snow. The front tends to grab the snow and with the easy steering it wants to wander left or right. Very hard to manoeuvre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best, can do it all. Live in Maine. We had a nor'easter Sunday and all day Monday. 26" of snow, 50mph winds. Used this machine on my 600ft gravel driveway. Had to clear it multiple times. This morning cut thru 24" drifts, heavy wind packed snow. This machine did it all. This is my 3rd Ariens and my 5th snow blower, nothing beats an Ariens, NOTHING!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good machine It blows really good, it is an easy starter with the Briggs and Stratton engine with adequate power. One draw back is the snow collects on the choke and key switch then freezes for start up next time, so I turn the key back to on and put the choke on when I shut it off. The hand warmers are a good addition to have.
