Customer Questions & Answers

They are spares are in case you snap the ones that are already holding the blades in place.

is it good on gravel driveways?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have a gravel and stone driveway, and I set the skids as high as they could go, but ended up eating a stone that immediately snapped the shear bolts when the stone got lodged between the augur and the housing. There was a spare pair of bolts, but the same thing happened again almost immediately. Very frustrating. The only way I can get out to get more bolts is to shovel my 500' drive! I wouldn't recommend this for gravel/stone drives unless you KNOW there are no loose stones under the snow!

Box Size

I want to go pick this up from the store and I only have a station wagon. If I get it in box, what is the box size? I need to make sure it fits in my car. (Model #: 920402)

how do I start it

Asked by: fred
It has a traditional pull-start as well as an electric start. I honestly rarely need the electric start even in cold weather, but it's good to have as a backup, especially at the beginning of the season when you're trying to get gas to the engine for the first time since the summer. Generally, I pull start it and it's ready to go.

This product worked well the first season I bought it. After that, it has been broken more than not. It simply doesn't start. I've spend $100s trying to fix it each season and it works once or twice then breaks again. This is by far the worst mechanical product I've ever owned and also by far the worse company/support I've ever dealt with. I will never buy an Ariens/Sno-Tek product again and strongly encourage you to avoid it as well. If I could give it zero stars, I would.

Blower started easily and did the job. With the chains installed, both wheels must be locked using the outermost axle holes (you won't find discussion about this in the manual, see the Ariens answer to my question about this situation). With both wheels locked, it is more difficult to make a turn. But, in my case, I have a straight driveway, so used the reverse gears to back up to the start line after completing a row.

Certainly not as good of a machine as Ariens flagship brand snowblowers (and yes, this is an Ariens product, they just brand it differently because it's their "value brand"), but better than any other "value brand," and still held up to most of the standards of any other Ariens product. Machine is tough, made in America (except for the engine), reliable and gets the job done. I'm almost disappointed that I've only been able to use it once so far this winter, but it got a ton of use the past two winters. When minor things do break in it, it's easy to fix, and I'm not good at fixing things. While I miss the old Tecumseh engines that Ariens used to use, the LCT engine in this machine (the same exact engine as the Ariens Compact 24) is a good engine. Now if you want to know what this machine doesn't get you for $650 compared to the $900 Compact 24: First and foremost, it is missing Ariens' signature orange stainless steel chute (in fact, this is Ariens' only machine that isn't orange, but it does have an orange stripe up the chute to just give it a taste of tradition), but rather has a plastic chute, it has smaller wheels than the Compact 24, and lacks a headlight. There are a few other details that I'm probably forgetting, but all-and-all this is a similar machine to the Ariens Compact 24 with some bells and whistles removed to cut the price down, and it's still a great machine for a great value. My father had an Ariens snow blower - the same one for over 30 years - for most of my growing up, and I wanted to continue the tradition of quality, so this "Value model" gave me the opportunity to do that at a price I could afford. This machine is every bit an Ariens. Are the "regular" Ariens better? Yeah, but this is still a great machine for an affordable price. I'm glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine is a beast!! Ordered from HD online and picked up in store. They had it already to go for me. All gassed up and ready. They demo'ed the machine for me and went over all of the controls. Loaded it up in my truck and good to go. We had a rare end of October noreaster last week and this ripped through the heavy wet snow with no problems. I recommed setting up one wheel to turn freely to make turning the machine easier. Just pull the wheel pin out and push the wheel all the way in past the hole then reinsert the pin. They highly recommend an oil change after the first storm to prevent any metal shavings from the break in run from getting gummed up in the engine.
