Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Snowblower I know it's pricey. I thought I may have overdid it with the size of it but honestly this machine is a beast. I have yet to get stuck or clogged once. It goes right through the slushy heavy snow and Ice at the bottom of the driveway where the blows push the snow. February 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful Machine Initially the machine was plagued with minor irratating issues, was delivered with rubber rot, on controls, engine oil was milky colored, and on the first storm starter cord broke. Now that all being said the dealer resolved all of these issues and the performance of the machine is impressive to say the least. Live in Maine where we recently have been hit with three storms all dumping 6 to 12 inches of snow in my 150 packed gravel driveway with a 75 by 50 turn around, and 100 feet of walkway. With six inches of snow and 2 hours it is all done, the steering is so good yes with a 36 inch blower I can do my walkways with ease. Given the size of this there is plenty of power and it is extremly easy to handle, starts easy and can really move the snow. Everyone said Ariens is the best in snow blowers, got off to rough start but can see many years of reliable service from this. Does as good a job as the plow without the 20ft high snow bank I would have to look at until May. January 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Professional 36 Excellent at throwing snow even if snow is very wet and great steer ability; am not sure if I should have bought model with tractor threads rather than wheels. This wheel model is faster but only works extremely well if surface is smooth and flat. 2 problems; chute does not stay where set and auger gets stuck each time a bump is encountered. I suspect tractor model which allows locking down auger may have been a better choice. This wheel model tends to lift if bumps are encountered. Longer learning curve....I am convinced however that this unit will be with me for a very long time. Overall a 4.5 out of 5! April 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine I bought this machine to replace the 47" front mounted John Deere snow blower on my John Deere 4010 tractor. Hands down this is the best snowblower I've owned so far. The second best is the Ariens 826 I inherited from my Grandfather. The only draw backs so far is the price was higher than I wanted to spend, the normal dealer games and the design of the ignition, choke and throttle are a little close and hard to use with gloves on. But my word, this puppy can throw some snow. I have marks in my trees 10-15 feet high from where it launches the snow and it clears the full width of my driveway which is +40'. March 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Snowblower! The Ariens Pro 36 has exceeded our expectations. We live in New Hampshire and needed a strong reliable snowblower to replace the hired snow plow operator that plowed our 400 foot driveway for the last 15 plus years. After doing a summer's worth of research, we decided that the Ariens Pro 36 was going to be our answer. After a full, complete, and hard winter, we can say with certainty that the Ariens Pro 36 performed flawlessly. It started easily for every snow storm. It has electric start, but the pull start is very easy. The machine eats the heaviest of snow with ease. The motor is powerful enough that it never bogs down, no matter how deep the snow was. With the traction controlled steering, my wife found that it was a breeze for her to operate as well. We liked the hand warming grips, and ecspecially the on the fly shoot direction change. If you have a large driveway to take care of in the winter, I recommend this machine 100%. April 3, 2013
