This model does not come standard with Heated Hand grips but they can be added. The part number for the heated Grips is 72101400. If you are looking for a snow blower that has the grips installed at the factory then you will want a model 92102900.

Answer: 
You should have concerns about the auto turn. It is a bad design. The machine pulls back and forth when you are trying to just go straight. Poor design. Wish I had seen all the complaints about it before I bought my unit.

Answer: 
With the auger resting on the ground, the machine will pull left or right depending on how level the ground is. Pulling left and right is a result of drag from the skid shoes. When there is a variance in ground level, the skid(s) will touch and drag, pulling the unit to one side or the other.

With the auger resting on the ground, the machine will pull left or right depending on how level the ground is. Pulling left and right is a result of drag from the skid shoes. When there is a variance in ground level, the skid(s) will touch and drag, pulling the unit to one side or the other.
Check the machine by keeping the front auger off the ground (by pushing down on the handles), and check to see if the machine still drifts to one side or the other. If it does, it could be a difference in tire pressure. Check and fill the tires as needed.
Note: The machine will not drift left-to-right, due to tire pressure alone. If low pressure is found, the machine will drift in one direction only, not both left and right.
Machine drifting slightly from left-to-right is normal when the auger is dragging on the ground. But, with the auger in the air, the machine should drive in a straight line. Read Less

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 358 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THE BEAST! IMPRESSIVE machine! Easy to use, easy to start, easy to maneuver. Even my 125lbs wife was able to snow blow our house without any issues (I was out of town, stop judging haha). The snow blower never got stuck, didn't even choke on heavy wet snow, and effortlessly throws snow if not too wet. The machine is known as the "BEAST" in my house and I highly reccommend it for you and your family. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far can't complain So far can't complain . Bought this today at HD and was presently surprised this unit now comes with heated hand grips. Staff at HomeDepot Waukesha WI was very very helpful answering my questions They also guided me in assembly questions I had and tips what to look out for. After getting this home unpacking and assemble as smooth and easy. Snow Blower started on the first pull. Can't wait for,1st snow. October 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The King Snowblower works great nice features.In my opinion Ariens is the only way to go. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loving my Ariens Snow Blower!! The white glove delivery was super! Came all assembled and they showed me how to use the snowblower. It was fantastic! It performs better than I could have imagined. What a machine! Throws the snow a mile. Easy to maneuver. Just what I need in Boston this year! March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deluxe 30 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with Auto-Turn Steering I liked everything about this snow blower except the "Auto Turn" feature. My driveway is not totally flat. So if the blower gets slowed down on or gets snagged on one side, it will turn towards that side, fast! Not good if blowing snow next to a vehicle, could crash into it. I am 61 yrs. old and when the snow blower makes it quick turn, it almost pulls the grips and controls out of my hands. Very rough to control. I think it would work ok if my driveway was new and flat. I don't know if this feature can be turned off or not,....yet. Also, the "OFF-ON" key position is opposite of how most keyed machines are; straight up = OFF and Turned to the left = ON. Not so for this machine! It is labeled at the key as to how to it operates. And there is no switch to turn off the head light, just my pet-peeve. All in all pretty good snow blower. If I had known about the "Auto Turn", I would have bought one without the "Auto-Turn" feature. March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine except for Auto-Turn Having used the snowblower for three storms now, 6",12', and 6". I have the following comments. High quality materials and construction. Plenty of power to handle heavy wet snow. My only complaint is the Auto-Turn feature. The machine has a mind of its own as far as direction of travel. Very difficult to control. Every time I have used it, it's turned into a wrestling match. I have adjusted the skids as recommended in the manual and am now at over an inch of clearance with no real improvement. I would like to find a way to disable the Auto-Turn, then it would an excellent machine. February 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Had to return but a nice machine for the price End of the day its Ariens or simplicity if your going to spend the money. For 1300 its a nice machine. I bought mine brought it home and started right up and worked great. Only issue was in N it would walk backwards. But after using it the chute rotation mechanism makes you lean forward and to the left, almost to the point where you have to stop. Once returning I went and looked at simplicity. Simplicity is truly a one hand operation machine. Pro level of a simplicity cant be beat, but the levels below that I think Ariens and Simplicity are pretty equally. January 15, 2016
