engine run time

the engine has a 2 hour run time what happens after the 2 hours
Asked by: sparky
Sparky, the 2 hour run time is a reference to the fuel tank size. After around 2 hours, you will need to refill the machine with fuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased This is my 3rd walk behind blower. Very pleased so far. Previous blower was mounted on my lawn tractor which could not handle snow removal very well on my slightly uphill driveway. Much more pleased with this unit. Starts every time. I am now 60 years of age and I remember my Dad having several Ariens blowers when I was growing up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not buy this product or recommend it to anybody Do not bye this product, auto turn doesn't,t work good on gravel drive. headlight shines in your eyes backing up when you tip it to back up. ran one winter belts already worn out. the drive came apart. arms are tired when done blowing driveway. I had a craftsman 17 years, wished i still had it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Heavy In The Front I've used an older 11/30 Deluxe and was impressed as to the distance that machine would throw snow and that is what I was looking for. My older Craftsman was a good Blower but did lack the throwing distance that I needed. The new Ariens 30" Deluxe I bought looks very similar to the older one I had used years ago but somewhere along the years they added the "Auto Turn" feature. It seems to work ok, but I wonder if by adding that feature, did they have to move the axle to the rear of the machine to accommodate this. The difference between the axle location on the older vs newer machine is probably 2" or more. This makes the machine quite a bit heavier in the front. When the axle was farther ahead it made the machine easier to maneuver, lighter on the shoes so it didn't dig into the gravel when the ground wasn't frozen and lighter on the handle end when you were moving it around. Also I don't see much difference in the handle construction to allow for the increased strain to pivot and maneuver this around. I think there could be cracked or broken handles over time. One other comment I'd like to point out is the size and construction of the gas tank. I think its too small for the size of the machine and what's with the metal gas tank. Aside from the fore mentioned I do think It is a well build machine... it just needs some design changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Ariens is a beast! Bought this machine for the first big storm this year. i live in Southeastern Mass and we have had nearly 7 feet of snow in less than a month, so have had to use the snowblower frequently. Starts up easily, and moves a ton of snow, including the build-up at the end of the driveway from the plows. I have gone through snow that is a foot over the top of the housing and it easily clears a path. Can't believe I didn't buy this years ago! The only drawback I can find is that it blows through fuel and needs to be re-fueled frequently. I would highly recommend this machine based on my experience so far. How long it will last remains to be seen but a gtood start!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome snow thrower We just had a snow Blizzard with 30+ inch of snow in Metro West of Boston and my Ariens Deluxe 30 inch snow thrower is so awesome. It cleared my driveways and walkways with ease due to new 306cc engine being powerful. The machine started up time after time with just one pull and have not quit on me. Ariens built quality is top-notch with heavy-duty parts throughout the machine and love the metal chute feature instead of some other brand which uses cheap plastics chute. This beast might not be for everyone on a normal snow storm but you will appreciate it when you have a big snow blizzard especially unexpected big amount of snow. Highly recommend this Ariens snow thrower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Time Buying Ariens Already better than the last machine I purchased. I have not tried it in the snow yet. But I have taken it for a spin in the driveway. I turns way better than the the last one I owned. It sounds better. Looks better. I had the worst experience with the last brand I owned. Everyone kept telling me to get an Ariens, so I did. I dont think that I will have any issue with this machine. If I do you will hear about it on here. But I checked it out and It seems solid, can't wait to try it in the snow. I have peace of mind now. This one was delivered from the store assembled. ( highly recommend you buy from store, not online) You get better customer service this way. Trust me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Machine I have owned a few snowblowers in my time and have not been very happy with most of them. This machine is built extremely well and is very very solid. The body has very little flex in it and has tight welds which keeps the bolts from loosening due to flexing. The auger is very rugged and will chew through almost anything including the wooden handle of my snow shovel which was buried in the snow one day. (not to impressed about that) :) I have gone through hard packed snow and ice pieces at the end of my driveway and this machine just roars through them. The chute has a full rotation and turns very easily. Also the deflector is well angled and has many positions that allow for tossing the snow for great distances. The only problem I had was that water did cause the cables to freeze up. This was easily solved by filling the cables with Fluid Film. I never had any problems with freezing after. The controls for the auger, chute, chute angle all work extremely well and are once again very durable. I have used this machine in very heavy wet snow and light fluffy snow. It will throw the light stuff but does extremely well in heavy wet slushy snow. It seems that the more soaked with water the snow is the more this machine loves it. I have never had a clog yet and hope that my luck continues. The grips are a nice size and the handwarmers work very well. I used to always have cold hands no matter what type of gloves I was wearing. Now even when my gloves get wet my hands stay nice and warm. Overall I highly recommend this machine because it is a well built, extremely well performing machine that certainly seems like it will last for a very long time.
