Customer Questions & Answers

How do these "fold" down out of the way when they are not needed? Do you have to loosen/remove the mounting bolts, or is there some kind of hinge?

what are these drift cutters for and where do they go on the machine. How are they installed?

Asked by: Anonymous
most blowers are between 20" to 26" high - if the drift is higher than your machine, the drift cutters slice the drift so it falls into machine - on Ariens they bolt to the left and right sides of the "business" end of the blower.

Sno-Thro Deluxe Drift Cutters for Snow Blowers is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't know what you're missing until... If you've never used drift cutters, you probably have been working too hard when your banks build up and you finally decide to move them. Quality manufacturers accessory. Photos on website are of the basic model not the deluxe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my snow removal arsenal These are a great add-on. Like others have mentioned, I found the knobs hard to turn and the bolts hard to keep in place while installing. I added a rubber washer to each bolt that serves two purposes - it holds the bolt in place and it makes it so you don't need to tighten the knobs as far to snug the bar up to the housing. I also think they'll help protect the painted finish when you rotate the bars in and out of the storage position. (the washers came from toilet tank bolts, which just happen to be the same diameter as these bolts)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good drift cutters What's there to say, they're drift cutters. They work as expected, and can be folded back out of the way when not needed. Quality and finish is good, except for the nyloc knobs included in place of nuts. In theory, this makes this a tool free installation, but in practice the knobs don't provide good enough leverage to overcome the friction in the nyloc insert, so tightening them properly is a chore. The design of the knob makes using a tool to gain more leverage difficult. Ultimately I did manage to get them sufficiently tight, but I'll likely replace the silly knobs with some standard nyloc nuts at some point this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, fits good, wonderful products from Ariens. OK, so its just a couple of steel bars that are pre-punched to fit the holes already set up on the Arien snow blower intake housing. I am impressed with the quality of everything these guys make........ I am an old city guy, that has bought his first snow blower, because I am tired of shoveling the wet stuff for the last two years at my new home (retired) in the mountains........Ariens build really well made equipment and the paint job feels like its a 1/4-inch thick........ have not tried the rakes yet, its still to soon in the season, but it will happen, it does every year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very easy to install and use I love the idea of this product. It installed fairly easily and operates fairly easily. My one gripe is the bolts that hold the cutters on. When you loosen up the knobs, the heads of the carriage bolts slip out of the square hole and you have to reposition them. Also, the knobs used to tighten the cutters down are very hard to turn. I'm pretty strong so I can imagine someone with less hand strength having a really difficult time with them. I'm sure they will loosen up over time though or you could just go down to HOME DEPOT lol. and get a different set of knobs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good accessory for the Ariens snow blowers. It is extremley helpful when cutting through heavy snow drifts. Also the design allows for the drift bar to be folded back to t he side of the snow blow for easy storage. Also, the bar is made of heavy duty steel. Good choice for areas that get heavy snow drift conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariens snow drift cutters. I purchased these drift cutters for my 2016 Ariens platinum series 24 inch snow thrower. The quality is superb just as all things made from Ariens company. I haven't used them yet as we have not had any snow but If we get any substantial snow falls this winter, I am ready.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Got the drift cutters for my ariens gt tractor mounted snowblower, and they fit great. I used regular nuts on the bolts rather than the knobs because I won't be adjusting them. Very thick metal and nice paint.
