Does this model have power steering and how easy is it to turn?

Asked by: Anonymous
No. There are two drive settings locked or unlocked. Locked will drive the machine straight but turning almost impossible. Unlocked the machine may wonder somewhat but can be turned, however with brute force.

will this unit come assembled and ready to use?

Asked by: Anonymous
If there is an Airen's dealer close by Home Depot will ship it to them and they will assemble it and deliver it to you ready to go. If there is not a dealer the assembly is minor and easy to do.

Customer Reviews

Professional Track Series 28 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower (926042) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard Working Beast We recently built a home in mountainous terrain of rural Colorado. Or driveway is over 700 ft. long and has steep slopes. Therefore, we needed a snow thrower with track drive. After much research, we chose the Ariens Pro Track 28. The Auto Turn feature was one reason for choosing this model. However, since our driveway is packed road base, the Auto Turn does not work. I verified that the Auto Turn does function properly, and it does work on bare concrete. On the road base surface, however, the track that is supposed to idle, just keeps driving and digs the road base up. I have to man-handle this heavy beast to get it to turn. Another issue is the chute direction control. The mechanism at the lever (handlebar) end needs improvement. It just slips into a plastic bushing through a hole in a metal plate, with nothing to lock it in place. After the mechanism fell out twice, I tapped a screw into the collar. We recently had a 14" snowfall. This unit had no problem handling that much snow. When it ran into a hidden ditch, I was able to back it out with no problem. The engine runs great, and I was surprised at how little gas it used - for its size. I also like the heated handgrips.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from there has to be better for this price tag Very strong machine that throws snow a long distance. Tracks work well in tough terrain. Heated grips are a nice adder. The bad .. heavy machine and tough to turn without clutches. There are cheaper machines out there with clutches that are far easier to operate. Mechanical levers to operate the chute are clunky and occasionally get stuck. Similar price machines on the market use push button servo motors to accomplish movements. Operation in the dark is a challenge. The head light curves over the top of the control area just in front of the speed selector. It shines directly in your face so you cannot see the selector position. I placed a strip of black tape across the top of the light which helped this glare. I am all for buying American but this machine is over priced for what you are getting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The machine work great Its has heated gripes that you can turn on and off. Easy to use controls with a one pull start and maneuvers very will. It throws snow a very long way. Should work great this winter. The only thing that does not work at all is the head light. Its needs a redesign, the light goes right into your eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is a beast!!!!! I have owned three snow blowers in the past and this one tops them all. It is so easy to use and steer. This thing throws snow so far it lands in my neighbors yard. (he doesn't like me) I highly recommend this snow thrower. Starts every time, easy to use and an excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older people Ordered....serviced and delivered. Haven't used it yet so check back with me after winter. Purchased two others before this one and they were great. Gave one to each son and I anticipate this will have all the power and endurance I need. All three were from Home Depot where I get treated like royalty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from trouble turning I purchased this model with the hopes that it would turn more easily as it was advertised. I have a gravel driveway and so I need the ability to raise the front end. This unit does not turn well on gravel! To turn you need to lift the back end of the unit to get the one track to stop turning. It worked okay in reverse but not well in forward. I had the unit picked up for service as soon as I tried using it the first time. Seems this turning system is not all it is cracked up to be. Also, to try and turn in the gravel causes the gravel to be dug up in the process of getting it to turn. This is not good as it creates high spots of gravel in the driveway. The unit needs to have a much better turning system than what is currently being used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for hilly yards The tracks on this blower are just what we needed for our yard and small farm. We can blow a path to/around the barn and get to the tighter spots on the hilly driveway. Making turns is a bit tricky with the tracks, but I'm sure it'll get easier with more use. Sheared a pin with the first use. But, better to shear a pin then jam up the thing. Easy to fix within minutes :-) It was more $$ than a blower with wheels, but wheels would be almost useless on some of the hills we have here.
