Anyone have the top door break or crack? Looks like it may be a weak link to the design due to vibration and used often to refuel.
Asked by: MDG
I would say yes, having just seen one on lowes showroom floor. The plastic covers seemed cheap and flimsy to the touch. I ended up buying the briggs&stratton for the same money. Seemed better built

Glad I paid the extra for the adjustable shoot from handlebar. Much better then bending over every 40 seconds. Four stroke is quiet and more powerful then my older 2 cycle Toros.

Assuming I can get it to start, it doesn't exactly throw snow - the snow mostly just tumbles out of the chute. If conditions are exactly right - 3 inches of snow, no more, no less...and a precise consistency, the machine will throw snow no more than 3 to 5 feet. Most of the time it simply clogs up in the chute and eventually tumbles out. As for the hard starting, I take very good care of my machines (they're expensive!). I use the correct weight oil for the temperature and change oil every 5 hours of use (or less). This machine starts and runs like a charm all spring, summer, and fall. But once the temp hits 25 degrees or less forget it. Even the electronic start cannot get it to run. I'm incredibly surprised at how poorly this snow thrower functions. I bought it strictly on the strong reputation of the Ariens company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower I've ever purchased I currently own a landscape and snow removal business. I own 2 28" Ariens deluxe 2 stage machines and an Ariens 208cc single stage with the remote chute control and it's the most maneuverable and profitable machine I own. I will buy another and keep two in the truck or send one off with another plow truck and operator. Buy this unit....you won't regret it. Capitaland Lawns LLC

I had to return due to faulty chute control cables, attempted to adjust cables per owners manual but it's challenging with the limited space provided and wouldn't want to keep making that repair if the problem continues. I should have bought the manual chute model and saved a $120. Very disappointing seeing as the blower probably works great but I never got to find out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Definitely get the remote shoot option so you can save time. Biggest problem is it is loud and annoying for neighbors when clearing snow early in the morning. Works as well as Toro and other popular brands except for the noise. I like that it is American made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Machine With A Few Minor Shortcomings I bought this machine to replace “the Beast,” a 15 y.o. Craftsman single-stage, two-stroker which, despite a cracked motor, a sheared-off muffler, and many other parts missing or inoperable, still started and threw snow. But, Chicago is having a bruising winter, so why tempt fate? I bought the Ariens because of their reputation, the fact that is is mostly American made and they offered a larger engine (208cc). I have used it 3 times on snows ranging from 2 to 9 inches. Overall, I am happy with the choice but have a few nits to pick. Delivery and Assembly: The machine was delivered on-time and in good shape. Assembly was straightforward (about 20 minutes) and all the parts and hardware were there. The only nit here is that the “tools required” list states you need a 7/16 and a 3/8” wrench or ratchet. Nothing in the assembly of my machine required a 7/16” wrench. No problem but it makes you wonder if you missed something. Quality Control: The motor, housing and auger mechanisms appear to be top-notch. But, my machine has a small crack in the gas cap. This won't prevent it from functioning but, c'mon. Also, the fuel shut-off valve on my machine will only turn about a ¼ turn and that's with great difficulty. I am afraid to apply any more torque for fear of breaking the plastic knob. Design: Nice overall design. The unit has only a partial plastic cowling which allows for easy access to the motor. Gas, oil, spark-plug, primer bulb and starter (electric and pull) are all where you think they should be. My unit has a remote chute controller which is thoughtfully placed on the right-side handle and works well. The machine is designed with a metal engine guard at the rear which sticks out about 7 inches. This is a double-edged sword. The guard does protect the engine (somewhat) and is handy if you are lifting the machine off the back of a truck. When tipped backward the machine rests on this guard at about a 45 degree angle—convenient for oil changes and working on the auger. But, be aware, this guard jutting out the back makes it nearly impossible to get this machine up or down stairs. Bad news for those who keep their snow blowers in a basement in real cold weather and may be a downright deal-breaker for those with raised patio decks. Performance: The Path Pro has started easily on the times I've used it. The electric start works fine or else 1-2 pulls on the cord. Of course it has been a relatively balmy 20 degrees in Chicago this week. The real test will come at 10 below. Too bad I can't keep it in the basement on those cold nights (see above). The one weird thing about starting this machine is that even an already warmed-up motor needs a full choke to start. As for snow removal the Ariens had no problem with snow up to about 9 inches. The pull-along effect of the auger diminishes as the snow heightens. I had no problems with clogging. Ariens claims a snow throw of “up to 35 feet” – maybe, with the chute straight ahead and a strong tail wind. Practically, however, expect something in the range of 8 to 12 feet. The Path Pro is happiest on smooth level concrete. If you pick up a chuck of ice or roll over a crack in the sidewalk you will know it immediately as the machine will lurch more violently than one would expect. Otherwise, it is easy to handle and maneuver even in tight spaces. The Ariens does a pretty good job of “getting down to the pavement” revealing about 50% to 60% of pavement after a single pass. A second pass is necessary to get all the way down. Although there are some minor problems, the good far outweigh the bad. I am happy with the Path Pro and would recommend it. I think it is a worthy successor to “the Beast.”
