How many cc's is the engine on this Ariens Model 926038?

This question is from Professional Series 28 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower (926038)
Asked by
Ken
September 20, 2011
It is advertised on your website as being 420cc's (which is what I want). But under the "More Info" tab there is a downloadable PDF of the owner's manual. In that owner's manual document, it says that the engine in the Ariens Model 926038 is only 342cc's. Which is it???

Answer: 
This unit will be able to handle a decent incline. Depending on the incline, you may be better off with a track unit. This is a difficult question to answer depending on the conditions and the angle of the incline. The stout tires on this model provide a large amount of traction though. Hope this helps!

Professional Series 28 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower (926038) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big power for major snow storm The completely assembled Arien's Professional 28 arrived at my door during the height of the storm. It replaced my 13 year old Arien. The delivery person did give some helpful tips on its usage. I filled the tank with gas and it started on the first pull. It cleared my semi circular driveway in 30 minutes with very little engine bog down at the end of the driveway. The slushy snow easily was thrown about 20 feet while the powder went about 60 feet. It was very similar to my old machine but I did like the new controls for the Shute especially the locking position to change the height of of the blowing snow. I highly recommend this product and hope to have it as long as my old machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariens Does it Right! I just bought this machine about 4 weeks ago. I live in a heavy lake effect snow area. I replaced an Arien's 8hp 1981 snow blower. I have used the machine four times since I bought it, the heaviest of snow being about 9 inches. What a difference! This is a powerful and well built machine. Its clears right down to the pavement and has no problems going through the heavy piles at the end of the driveway. The auto turn works well and the hand warmers do their job. You can use the electric start but it's not necessary because the machine starts on one pull of the cord. I highly recommend this machine if you live in a significant snowfall area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Mother of Snowblowers My first Ariens was too small because I didn't want to spend the money, another lesson learned. This time I spent the money and got a full featured blower. This thing is a beast, doesn't stall. And turns on a dime. Oh. The hand warmer is nice to defrost hands. I've spent less on used cars but I don't regret this purchase. It does like to drink fuel but that is a large engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT'S OVER Read all the reviews on this machine and you will find that everything that has to be said has been said so I'll be brief. Your search is over, the chances of this snow-blower being the last one you'll ever buy is nothing short of excellent. Your first winter use is the break-in period, then adjust your auger belts.....That's it. It's over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful machine! I have only had 1 opportunity to use my new snowblower so far, but I can already tell it is a BEAST! And I mean that in the kindest way. It is big and rugged and almost drives itself (self propelled). It is a powerful machine. Can hardly wait for a BIG storm to give it a workout!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariens 926038 Professional Series 2-Stage 28 in. For now, I will provide feedback on my Home Depot purchase & delivery of the machine. Later in the season, I will provide feedback on the performance. This model is NOT sold in your local store and can only be ordered online and delivered directly to your home. When ordering, I found a coupon code (BATH175RK) which knocked $175 off the purchase price. This reduced the price to the lowest that I could find locally or on the internet. Home depot email follow up on the order was thorough and provided a tracking number for the freight carrier. I was a little confused by the logistic details of how the blower would be delivered. Here is what happens. Ariens (Wisconsin) ships the machine using USF Holland freight company to an authorized location within a few hundred miles of your home. A tracking number was provided by Home depot for USF Holland. In my case, the shipment from Wisconsin to Detroit area only took a day and was easily tracked. The blower was shipped to a company called Altaquip in the Detroit area. Altaquip has over 20 locations across the country and is the main company which Ariens uses to prep their equipment prior to home delivery. Altaquip was very professional and courteous. They contact you via phone to advise that your blower has arrived in their facility and being prepared for delivery. They complete the assembly of the machine, put gasoline in and confirm oil levels. They ensure that the engine starts and that the machine functions properly. Altaquip coordinates a suitable delivery day when they call you; they gave me a few choices of days. Their drivers use larger panel trucks (21 foot semi) with lift gates on the back. The driver contacts you about 30 minutes or so before they arrive at your house. It is important to note that you MUST have a person available at the house when the blower is delivered; Altaquip will NOT leave the blower in your driveway without a person to sign for the equipment and take ownership. In my case the driver was hesitant to back all the way to my garage due to low hanging trees in my long country drive. He did get as close as possible, unloaded the unit off of the truck with the lift gate, got the signature handed me the operators manual and was on his way in about 5 minutes. Once in the garage, I looked over the blower carefully and powered it up. There is only about 2 cups of gasoline in the gas tank and the oil was full. The blower starts flawlessly and controls worked - except for one. I did have a problem with the shoot adjust which needed to be tweaked a little to get proper operation. The skid plates came adjusted for a solid surface. I have a crushed rock/gravel drive. I know from speaking with other blower users that the skids should be adjusted to leave 1+ inch of clearance so that the blower housing does not scoop up rocks - especially in the early season before you have packed snow and frost in the ground. The owners manual package comes with 2 shear pins, a small bottle of gas stabilizer, warranty card, Briggs engine manual and Ariens blower manual. You will need to complete and mail the warranty card which is prepaid. On my to do list before the snow starts to fly: * Buy a few more shear pins just to have plenty of spares. * Buy a nice 5 gallon gas can with good nozzle. * Spray some silicone spray on the inner shoot and impeller areas. Later this season I'll follow up with feedback on how this BEAST works. I'll add comments on how the 926038 handles and eats the lake effect snow that Lake Michigan dumps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best, Most Powerful 28 Inch Snow Blower A top notch experience from the purchase at Home Depot to the Ariens professional home delivery and on-the-spot training in your driveway to demonstrate all the features of the Ariens. The Ariens Professional Delivery Specialist impressed us with the pull start feature on this large 420cc engine, which started on the first try. (The electric start feature is of course ok to use too.) The hand controls are sturdy and easy to use. Unlike lower-priced snow blowers that have plastic discharge chutes and hard-to-reach controls in front of the handlebars, the Ariens Professional series have a solid steel chute with chute controls located on the main control panel with the other hand controls. Very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2013 Pro 28 performed like a Champ this winter! I finally retired my Ariens S-824 after more than 20 years of rock-steady service (tuned it up and gave it to my nephew where it still runs like a fresh machine). Bought my Pro-28 in October 2013, just in time for the worst winter we've had in Winnipeg, Manitoba since 1898: Kick-you-in-the-teeth cold and snow-falls way above normal. The Pro-28 didn't bat an eye - it did everything I asked of it and looked around for more. If it had the hand-crank chute control my 824 did, it would be absolutely perfect! But, maybe I'm too old for that much change. Don't like smart phones either.
