Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 251 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is easy to use. This was my first time buying and using a snow blower. As a new homeowner I had gone through last winter with a shovel. My driveway is slopped and can easily fit ten cars on it so shoveling was rough. This year we are going through the snowiest winter in years accumulating record snowfalls. When I bought the blower it was Fall so when the Ariens dealer dropped it off and showed me how to use it there was no snow. Well, I misplaced the DVD so starting and using it was guesswork. The machine has the start features laid out very nicely in pictures so it was easy to start. The most challanging thing about snow blowing, I've learned the hard way, is determining the pattern to blow and the wind direction. I had originally started going across on the slope until I figured out it was much easier going straight up and down but I have to lock both wheels so I get the traction I need. It requires some elbow grease turning it when the wheels are locked. I wished I had bought the auto turn but an Ariens rep told me this wouldn't work on slopped terrain. I did have to tighten a screw as the Shute shift lever would pop out at the lowest setting. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and it's become like a big toy when it snows. February 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for Maine! Initially wanted the Compact 24, but decided to go with the Deluxe model for the more powerful motor. Though it cost a little more and is a bit heavy for my wife (mid 50's) to handle easily, the upside is that it chews through deep snow (15" plus) and the big crusty pile at the end of the driveway without missing a beat. It really can throw 40 feet! So far, it's everything I'd hoped for. Starts on the first pull even in sub-zero temps. It was delivered to my house in a box - took about an hour to assemble. A relatively easy job for a handy person. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement for 47 year old Ariens I purchased the 24" Deluxe to replace a 47 year old two stage Ariens that my father gave to me when he moved into a condo 30 years ago. The original machine was working well but I was afraid of it deciding to retire in the middle of a big storm. With such a great experience with this 1967 machine I considered no other brand than Ariens. Very pleased. The first time I used the new machine it was pulling a lot to the left. But the longer I have used it the better the steering became. Now it steers true. If this new machine performs like the one it replaced I won't have to buy another blower until 2061! January 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the power and easy turn feature After blowing snow with a 25 year old snowblower for many, many years and the rough winter we had in Michigan 2013-2014, I decided I needed a new snow thrower before tihis old machine died on me. I decided on the ARIENS 24 in deluxe . What a snowthrower. My old machine was fairly dependable , but never thru snow like my new ARIENS. What a wonderful machine. I can,t believe the power and throwing capability of the Ariens . No comparison to any snow thrower I have ever seen or used. I highly recommend the Ariens to anybody thinking about a snow thrower . Love the easy turn steering . Thanks Ariens Dave January 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet, compact and very easy to handle and also blows snow well. This product, so far, has been good even though in Winnipeg, MB this season there has not been much snow. The only set back I really had was with cold, -25 C & lower temps, starting. Following instructions on machine and in Manual starting in cold weather always made me think I flooded the machine and would then proceed to warm the motor with heaters. I got feed up and phoned customer service and spoke with a gentleman who told me not to worry about priming up to 5 or 6 times in cold weather. Tried his suggestion and machine started with one pull. What a relief. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This model propells the snow 35 ft. which I need to clear the driveway. Before I purchased the Ariens Deluxe this season, I was a satisfied owner of a Ariens snow blower for 35 years. The old Ariens gave such dependable service that I would only consider replacing it with a new Ariens model. This new Ariens Deluxe 24 already has impressed me with its performance this season. My only problem is....this new Ariens will out live me!!! February 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Design The design of the Deluxe 24" is second to none. The steel frame, solid construction, and easy steer functions make this blower an excellent choice. It is small enough to get into most tight spaces around the typical home owner's property but strong enough to blow the snow far away very easily. Starts easily every time. Love the manual crank for the shoot direction. Any other blower I've had with the "joystick" and cable has malfunctioned within the first 1-2 seasons. You wont be sorry you bought this one!
