Customer Questions & Answers

Ariens no longer has this model on their website. When will you carry the new model 921038?

Asked by: Xyriut
Yes, bigger engine, and enhancements. One of which, I've been told by an Ariens rep (I might have the chat manuscript available) is that they've reduced the sensitivity of the autosteer mechanism, which is probably a good thing for folks that have even slightly uneven driveways or pavement of any sort. The price is the same as the old model, as offered by other dealers located on the internet. However, like you, I wanted to purchase from HD because one is close to me, and I had hoped a large chain has the buying power to support such a high end blower without having to haggle with them, should something go wrong.

Home Depot's website has this listed as model #921028. This is a discontinued model from 2013-4. The current 2014-15 model is #921038. Which model is this?
Asked by: VicD
I am going to have to look into this for you. You are correct in that the921028 is last years model. If the 2014-15 model is available at Home Depot this year it should be marked as a 921038. Please check the site on Monday for any updates.

Customer Reviews

Platinum 24 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with Auto-Turn Steering is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, other than the autosteering Very powerful, easy to maneuver, and cleans down to the pavement very well. However, the auto power steering can be dangerous if you're trying to maintain a straight line in tight quarters. For instance, if you are plowing your driveway, and try to get close to your vehicles, you run a very high risk of hitting either uneven pavement or ice, and having the unit think you want to turn. So, what does it do, it locks that inside wheel and turns. They should have at least enabled a bypass on the unit at this price, so you could disable the feature when you truly want to go straight only. Almost every other manufacturer allows you to either manually enable, or disable this feature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed to start on third use We had our first good snowfall in Minnesota this week, and had an opportunity to use our brand new Ariens 24" Platinum snowblower. The first two times of clearing the snow went great, cleared the snow like a charm. The third time going out the snowblower would not start. Went through all of the troubleshooting steps, was using brand new non-oxy fuel, everything on our end was done properly, but the machine would not start by either pull string or electric start. Unfortunately, we had to return the snowblower today. Very disappointed that this happened as Ariens is typically a good brand and our previous Ariens snowblower never gave us any trouble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hand warmers are great-engine should be made in America Own a Ariens pro28"-got the platinum24" for my son. Engine runs to lean. slight popping sound from exhaust. Chute had same problem as the Pro28-wouldn't lock in place all the time.Had to take cover off and adjust. When. I bought Pro28" in 2011. One of the main reasons was it was all made in America. Now the Engines are made in China.Spoke to Ariens rep. he said they had problems with B&S engines. No problem with my pro28! Platinum24 operated very well. A little lighter then the Pro28"[which clears snow like a monster] But price is a lot less. I would recommend this product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from once recieved, the machine would not run. No spark! Fair price, nice robust machine, had to go pick up the machine myself because the local dealer had "already" made his deliverys. So I had to pick it up myself or take a day off from work.The Dealer did not start or run the machine nor demonstrate safety features. "they don't do that" Dealer gets paid $90 for "services" by Home Depot. When I got the machine unloaded by myself at home, it would not start. No spark. I loaded up the machine by myself, drove it 14 miles to Home Depot and got my $1500 back. Nearly 5 hours wasted time / effort and no snow blower! Should i try again? Have the dealer prove the machines actually runs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need to buy one right away. It's the best snow blower yet. I have been thinking of buying a snow blower for some time now. Finally I gave in and buy one , but I did my best snow blower test. And this model won hands down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has ease of use features. With low useage, I am waiting for heavier snow to evaluate add'l features, I suspect they will deteriorate early in the life of the unit.
