Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME Bought this machine because after 33 years my MTD 10hp, 30" cut finally bit the dust. Did some research and looked at various manufacturers and settled on Ariens, final decision was either the 30" or 28" cut. Settled on the 28. Brought it home and put it together in about 1hr, easy instructions to follow. Then out to the driveway. It cleared snow that had been there for 4 days, even cutting thru the packed bank left by the plow without any hesitation. Then off to the back yard to clear a path for the dog. Again, no problem. All I have to get used to is not fighting with the machine, it is a breeze to use compared to my old one that weighed about 375lbs. The auto-turn is great. November 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definately YES!! I originally bought the 24', the lower version. The Tires were too small and they slipped in the snow. I then upgraded to this and for any one who live in an area where there could be 20-30 cm of snow, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS UNIT. THIS IS A BEAST!!!! Exceptional performance and very powerful motor. All metal build, hoping it would last me 10-15 years... Go for this one!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET! January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine Patrick fromBig Bend, WI nailed it with his review. I live in Northern Ontario (Canada) and have owned other blowers in the past. I bought the Ariens 28" 3 years ago and it been the best one I’ve ever owned. It starts good, runs quiet and throws the snow as far I need it to. I keep it covered in a small shed, occasionally spray it all over with a light oil, do the full maintenance on it every year and use synthetic grease and premium gas (no ethanol). I’m hoping to get many years out of it as we have no shortage of snow. December 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the money This Snowblower works amazing! Our first snow fall in Minnesota was lots of rain that turned into snow so it was a lot of wet and sticky snow. It never clogged up and still had plenty of power to throw it where I wanted it. December 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top notch Snow Blower I got this Ariens Snow Blower after we had 8"+ dropped on us and shoveling was too much work. Easy to set up and it ate through the packed down piles of snow from the city plows at the end of my driveway. January 14, 2014
