Does it come with the electric start cord and a pull cord?

Asked by: Anonymous
It comes with a pull start and has provisions for electric start if you plug an extension cord to electrical connnection by the starter. I've yet to use the electric start as it always starts easily with the pull start.

Platinum Series 24 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Blizzard w/ Ariens 921017 WOW !! A Blizzard has been the first snowfall for my new ariens snowblower. No better test for any type of snow removal equipment than a nasty 1.5 ft wind driven snowfall. After checking all items on my start up list the unit started manually with no problem on the first pull . The amount of power this unit has made quick work of the deepest snow drift and made clearing the mouth of my driveway easier than its ever been. It throws snow as advertised {50 feet}. The heated handles kept my hands warm during the entire time I was working. A beast of a machine and pleasure to use under the most adverse conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from platinum 24 Great machine only used it once on a four inch storm. I gotta say that I love the tracton control feature that best. Very easy to steer and turning, no effort needed. Heated hand grips kept my hands warm that day. Solid steel all a round. Cast iron gear box with a 5 year warranty. Quality made snowblower and still made in the good old USA..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Blower This Platinum Series 24" blower is perfect for rough uneven surfaces. Light weight and easy to use even on heavy snow fall (3 ft) days. The "White Glove" service did not come with delivery in my area so, assembly took me about two hours. Great product for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The real deal! From the moment the machine was delivered I knew that iI had made the right choice.The driver went through everything in great detail.No question was to small to ask because I never owned a snow blower before.The machine came fully assembled ,ready to go.This is a quailty built machine that has lots of extra power.I didn't want plastic parts that wouldn't last.So I'll enjoy throwing snow for next 20 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just can't get any better Had a freak NY snowstorm, 10-12", wet, heavy snow. Not even a little problem tossing that mess across the street. Well made, works and starts great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10"Blizzard? No Problem! Dec 20, 10+ inches of Heavy, Wet snow. Compacting the snow below it into "hard pack"- just from the weight above. Needless to say, the snow did not get blown very far (7-12ft depending on Gusts) and you end up having to blow, "blown snow", which only compounded the density situation. My new Ariens 24" Platinum snow thrower chewed through it. without issue. My Dads 20+ year old behemoth Cub Cadet Tract model has convincingly lost its postion as the most powerful efficient snow throwing machine in the extended family. LOL, He actually gave up and went in the house, disgusted, when his machine kept climbing, while the Ariens chewed. My recently demised John Deere TRS26 snow thrower was an impressive machine. This Ariens makes me wonder why I stayed "Green" for so long. NOTE: I mention 7-12ft of blowing distance. This was in 30+mph sustained, swirling winds. The snow chute was aimed low, to keep from being a human ice column. If I had aimed the chute high, they'd be reporting snow in Arkansas. RIght after the discovery of snow packed Iceman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Ariens Deluxe Platinum 24" snowblower from Home Depot arrived on time and completely assembled. There was a demonstration on operating the unit and all questions I had were answered in detail. This unit was chosen after a several month selection process. I have no doubt this unit will exceed all of my expectations and perform in any and all snow conditions. Additional reviews will follow after the arrival of those first flakes. Think Snow !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24" Platinum Ariens Home Depot were great and they helped me order this model online. Consumer service couldn't have been better. I just got it on the 23th of December. A xmas gift to myself. Well we haven't got any snow yet so don't know how good it will work but I have used Ariens blowers before and they were great power and blows the snow far. I like the fact of all metal and not plastic like some other brands. I love the quick chute rotations handle that's allsome.. Ariens is number one snowblower on the planet. Can't beat the warranties either.. Thanks Ariens for making such a great machine..
