CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 215 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy -22 in south central Ontario, turned the key, turned on the gas, turned up the throttle and choked it. First pull it started....this has been the case for this particular machine. Works great and throws the snow quite a distance. on the downside, the shoes could be a bit wider for gravel or lawns. And the gas tank could be a half gallon bigger for the larger driveways. Other then that, I'm 100% happy! January 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We got the power I had an Arien 24 inch single stage for the last 12 years. It was great. I'm getting older and the winters are tougher to deal with for me, my kids still love it tough. In an effort to minimize coldness I went to the 30 inch 2 stage with all the bells and whistles. With the single stage I had to spray the shute with silicone spray so that wet snow would come out. Standing in front of the new shute now the wind blows my hair back. The snow is going to fly. The hand warmers are fantastic. Warm up in seconds, no more cold gloves and hands. The auto turn feature works great; no more horsing the machine around on a sidewalk and now blowing snow thru the turn, instant 180 degree turns on a dime. And dimes are thinner now than when I was a kid. I am looking towards a record snow fall this year... Or at least hoping for one. The only con I have about it is the 'white glove' delivery service. What a joke. The guy didn't know a thing about it and put a big scratch down the side of it by the way it was tied in the trailer. Arien sent me a can of touch up paint. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 SNOWBLOWER IS BETTER THAN EXPECTED IN EVERY WAY, WHEN I WAS SHOPPING FOR A SNOWBLOWER I READ SOME REVIEWS ABOUT THE POWER STEERING ON THIS MODEL.SOME PEOPLE SAID THE SNOWBLOWER IS HARD TO KEEP STRAIGHT ON A ROUGH SURFACE I DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM.MY DRIVEWAY IS DIRT/GRAVEL NOT SMOOTH.ALSO THE HEATED HANDLES WORK GREAT. I LIVE IN A TWO STORY HOUSE I WAS PUTTING SNOW ON MY ROOF (.ACCIDENTLY) THE ONLY BAD THING I FOUND IS THERE IS NO PLACE TO SIT I WANTED TO DRIVE IT. December 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has great features. I'm very happy with the purchase. It does everything I need. Easy to start and has hand warmers.it runs so smooth and throws snow where I need it to go. February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Snow Blower Quality and Build - Excellent Throwing heavy snow - wow. I was impressed. This unit has the larger motor and it really kicks in. the heated hand grips - gimmick - NO they work. Again I was nicely surprised. Large unit. This unit is really not much bigger then Ariens other series but its large and tough. The only item I have questions on is the zero turn. Yes it works. But have the front end grab onto leaves buried under the snow and the unit wants to turn. This unit requires a stronger individual to operate. Overall I looked at a lot of units and Ariens is correct. They are the KING of Snow. No questions here. December 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beast in the Snow Bought this unit at Home Depot and had it delivered in 1 week before the winter. Many reviews complain about the single lever chute mechanism and I too had a tough time using mine. I noticed that Home Deport had assembled the chute lever incorrectly under the handles causing the device to bind with every turn. After I took the entire chute assembly apart and correctly assembled it (2 hours), the functionality is amazing. The unit throws snow a good 50 plus feet and cuts through deep and recently plowed banks as well. The auto drive steering does make for a bit of challenge if you are not down to the pavement but is not hard to overcome. Overall very satisfied with the unit and NOT satisfied with the assembly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not get 15' Bought this machine after giving my 25 yr old Toro away. Ordered it early and received Sept. noticed bolt from belt shroud missing, eh, no biggie. Didn't run machine other than to get off delivery truck, and start couple times in 3 mos. it was filled with ethanol free fuel, nice touch. However when blizzard Colbie hit Jan 26/7 I started machine and got 12' through 22" snow before it quit. It will run for 10 seconds and then quit. Now I have to bring it to authorized dealer? Bad Bad start to what I hope will be long service life. Wish I had my Toro! Luckily neighbor let me use his Ariens Deluxe 30, Thanks D. I hope it doesn't snow before I need it again. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great snow blower for the job This machine gets the job done! I purchsed this in November and now beginning to loose track of how many times I have used it so far, but actually look forward to the next one. The blower not only gets the job done in a short period if time, but have fun doing it. I can't relate to any of the issues some have mentioned but for some it sounds like they should stick to one of those smaller machines. I wanted a big machine and expected it might take some extra work to manage but experienced nothing more than what should be expected. For me, it's easy to start and easy to handle. I'm very happy with my purchase so far. February 16, 2014
