Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 3, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 17, 2013
