Customer Questions & Answers

How do i get the snow shoot to move it seems to be stuck.

Asked by: vain
I would take it apart to check for obstructions otherwise the chute is easily rotated

What is the height when the handles are folded down?

I would like to know if this will fit in the back of my SUV (Volvo SC90) with a 32" opening.
Asked by: Frustrated
With the handle folded down the discharge chute is a bit higher so you need at least 29 to 30 inches. The 32 inches for the SUV should give you plenty of wiggle room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy Another Product Every year has to get serviced to start. My Brother down the street has 15 year old model same type of blower. Never has to get serviced. Buy something else. Maybe user error but I don't care because he doesn't do any thing different. For what I paid I should not have to have a guy look at it every year in order for it to start. Part of the challenge is the company I bought it from went out of business. Who knows maybe it was related to this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine Really pleased with this machine! Used 3 times so far on snowfalls between 4-9". Performs really well. Tackled some 15" drifts and it just chews its way through (albeit at a slower pace). Couldn't ask for more. Have the 208cc model and it seems to have a lot of power. Packed very well from the factory. Unfolded the handle, 3 screws to mount the discharge chute, poured in supplied oil, gassed it up and it started on the first pull. (And continues to start on the first pull every time.) Did a lot of research on their engineering of this model and it seemed to stand out from the competitors. Couldn't be happier with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I bought this machine for doing a large deck and trim work my 48" two stage snow blower would not do. It started easily with the first pull out of the box. It has no problem removing 7 to 8 inches of snow with an ice crust on the top. The rear guard is excellent for protecting the engine and it's light and highly maneuverable. The engine is a little larger than the majority of the single stage models and this is a big plus. Ariens is know for high quality USA made snow blowers and this machine will not disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Snow Blower Reinvented The build quality and usability of this machine is top notch. I opted for the pull-start only model to save a few bucks, but definitely wanted the power of a 208cc. Gas-ed and oiled out-of-the-box, mine started on the 2nd pull. Our 2nd significant snowfall of 2014 here in Minnesota, and this thing works fantastic! I have a few rental properties in addition to my own home, so I needed something lighter to haul around. I'm 43 years old and 170lbs. and I can lift the machine onto the tailgate of my full-size pick-up by myself. Ideally, you'd want a hand lifting it, but it can be done solo. I think they've "built a better mousetrap" with this single-stage snow blower, but I'm puzzled as to why snow blowers in general (especially single-stage) cost so much more than a regular lawn mower? Seems to be similar technology? I really hated to shell out $500 for this machine, but I may forget all about that after a few more snowfalls. )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariens PathPro model 938031 Consumer Report panned this model in their Feb 2014 issue but they got it dead wrong. This snow blower is the nicest single stage I have ever had my hands on. Powerful and easy to use-I love this machine. Just cleared 10 inches from my driveway and it was a breeze. I find myself almost hoping for more snow. And the quality Ariens puts in their products is amazing. This is an amazing snow blower for less than $500. Highly recommended by this user.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow what a machine I purchased this machine a week before Xmas and have used it 5 times since. I live in Buffalo NY and know what kind of machine it takes to keep up with deep snow and drifted piles. This machine is everything anyone could want or hope for. It was very easy to assemble and started right out of the box with the first pull and every time since. It throws deep snow like no other snow blower I have owned (at least 5) and when it comes to cleaning out the bottom of the driveway ( where the city plows pile it up) it is no problem at all ! It throws that hard packed snow 10-15 feet. In 5-8 inches of snow it throws it as fast as I can walk behind it and right down to the concrete. Don't miss out on this great product and you really don't need the electric start because the engine starts right up with the minimum of effort or strength pulling the cord !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment! I picked up this bad boy back in fall of 2011 on sale for $550 vs the regular price of $800. I am really surprised that the price has fallen down to the $427 to $497 mark within that time period. I've used this blower only three times in the period I have had it for with snowfall ranging from 15cm to 40cm. It starts up instantly in cold weather, and the electric start is an added bonus. Just few things to note that maintenance is KEY. As soon as you get your blower, please change your oil after the first month. Its recommended/required in the LCT engine manual. I didn't pay attention to this and luckily I have not run into any problems. Please also make sure you follow the maintenance schedule as set per the LCT manual. The engine is great, but hey its no Briggs and Stratton that's found on the Ariens snowblowers, even though its made by the same company. Please also note that the spark plug has a tendency to get dirty after the first two uses, so one would have to clean it out with a wire brush or emery paper. Another thing is that when this unit is left in storage, the remaining fuel gets collected in the carburetor which can lead to problems down the road, especially start up issues. Luckily I was able to fix this. As long as you follow the maintenance schedule, you are good to go. I.e. oil change, drain remaining fuel from fuel tank and drain gasoline build up in the carburetor - all prior to long term storage. Make sure to add sea foam, an amazing fuel stabilizer that works wonders. PS it seems that this newer model looks different than the one I have. No red stripe. Otherwise same specs. Well,. enjoy your Sno Tek units folks!
