Answer: 
Not sure which machine you have, if it is the Ariens ProPath 21in EC than you are wrong my friend.... I just used it yesterday, the chute direction rotates no problem, the issue is the top part of the chute direction which directs the snow to be thrown close by or 20t away, that is manual, which is stupid.

Answer: 
There is no correlation between the auger engagement and the discharge chute lever and one does not need to be engaged for the other to work. You may want to make sure that nothing is binding where the chute rotates over the housing. If you notice it binding you may be able to loosen the tension or you may need to take it to a dealer for service.

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.

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 3 out of 5 by from Nice machine but one major, major flaw OK. Let me start by saying I owned a Snow-Tek for two seasons that thing was a beast. LOVED IT!!! Now, this one, the Ariens Path-Pro... used it yesterday on about 6in. of heavy wet snow, it did a great job, no issues whatsoever... plus the accumulation of the city snow plows at the edge of the driveway was handled easily. My driveway is 20x50, I did it in about 1 hour, it got cleaned to the asphalt, nice. Having written all that, I am going to try to return this machine. If homedepot takes it back, it would be AWESOME. WHY? Because the top part of the chute. which adjusts so you can through the snow nearby or 20ft away is manual. You have to go around the machine, release the knob, adjust the height, tighten the knob and continue snow throwing... well, I had to do that way to often for my liking. It is just not proper planning from Ariens on this part... it is annoying, extremely annoying to have to stop, adjust, continue, 1 minute later, stop again, adjust.... NEVER AGAIN!!! If you think you will not be bothered by that, go ahead and get it, it is a nice machine, starts on the first try, easy to assemble, nice little powerful machine. For me, no....This is going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine and Easy to Use I had a Craftsman 26 inch two stage snowblower and it worked great. It was just too big to keep in the garage and I always had to think ahead as to whether I would have to move it from the shed prior to the snow coming or not bothering with it. I gave it to a guy who really had big jobs and then I bought an Ariens on the advice of my cousin who uses their professional equipment. I also appreciate that it is US made. I just followed the instructions, put in the oil and gas, and it easily started right up. I have the electric starter and did not need it. My first use was this past weekend with the monster snow in the Washington DC area where I live. I was concerned that the depth of the snow would be a problem for a single stage machine and it was not. Going back and forth and overlapping the passes made pretty quick work of a 50 foot sidewalk and a two and a half car length double driveway on a slight incline. Unlike the earlier machine I had, the discharge chute is plastic not metal and the snow did not stick and clog like with the metal chute. This machine is light and so compact and my neighbors were so surprised at how this machine chewed through the snow and threw it. The only problem developed when the remote chute director froze the chute to the left. Once the ice melted, it was fine. Just note that this was after a couple of hours of continuous usage because I also cleared my neighbor's driveway. This machine runs smoothly and is not any louder than any other machine, snow or lawn. Absolutely recommend this machine without reservations.

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.”

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Remote chute My main issue is with the remote chute rotation. I intentionally purchased this so I wouldn't have to do the manual rotating. I used it 2X last year and had to bring it in to fix the cable because the chute wouldn't rotate all the way to each side. This year I used it once and need to bring it in. I have a very old Ariens that was my dad's and it still works well (knock on wood) but is bigger and heavier so I bought this one to use when I had surgery. Not the same quality as the old ones. I now have to lift it into my car again and bring to a dealer to be fixed. Problem is, do I have to do this every time I use the blower? Very big issue. Wish I wouldn't have gotten it with this remote handle control. Really would like to have it put to manual rotation or just get my money back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ariens Path Pro - Common-Sense Get The Job Done Machine! Arrived complete, no missing parts, easy assembly. Ate up to 8" of fluff and 4" of heavy wet stuff no problem. The second day of use - during the second week of February when we were getting snow every other day, the handle for the pull-start slipped off the knot, and the cord wound up inside the recoil. Seems like the basic things fail, but when it comes to what it was designed for, this machine is headache free. Machine is now at an authorized local dealer for (hopefully) warranty svc. on the pull-cord start mechanism.
