Rated 5 out of 5 by platinum 24 Great machine only used it once on a four inch storm. I gotta say that I love the tracton control feature that best. Very easy to steer and turning, no effort needed. Heated hand grips kept my hands warm that day. Solid steel all a round. Cast iron gear box with a 5 year warranty. Quality made snowblower and still made in the good old USA.. February 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Blizzard w/ Ariens 921017 WOW !! A Blizzard has been the first snowfall for my new ariens snowblower. No better test for any type of snow removal equipment than a nasty 1.5 ft wind driven snowfall. After checking all items on my start up list the unit started manually with no problem on the first pull . The amount of power this unit has made quick work of the deepest snow drift and made clearing the mouth of my driveway easier than its ever been. It throws snow as advertised {50 feet}. The heated handles kept my hands warm during the entire time I was working. A beast of a machine and pleasure to use under the most adverse conditions. December 27, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Support I recieved the product and used it once before it had a catastrofic failure. It threw both auger drive belts and locked up because the pulleys were not properly aligned. Since it was less than 30 days old, your company covered the transport fees to and form the place of repair. I used it once after it was returned to me. It seemed to work well. The only issue I have found with the machine is that the cutting with of the feed shute is narrower than the tires, so you mess up the clean path just cleared. Also the skid shoe extends far enough from the housing to cause ths snow to collapse after you make a cut through a level of snow. April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great piece of snow removal equipment. I purchased this model because of the Ariens reputation and the fact that a neighbor has an Ariens and I was impressed with its performance as an observer. I bought it and then it didn't snow enough to be used for the next two winters, so it just sat in my shed. Well, the snow did come this past winter and it came and it came! So I gave the blower its first of quite a few snow removal tasks and it performed great. Wet snow, dry snow, and packed snow where the snow plow trucks piled it up at the end of my driveway were all handled with ease by this model regardless of snow depth. Many times while operating it, I muttered to myself "money well spent"! March 28, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Product has poor chute control design The second time I used the blower the chute controls froze. I could not lock the chute into position. Dealer came out and made an adjustment and it seemed fine. The next usage the problem reoccurred. The dealer picked it up and said it was working fine. I told him it freezes in cold weather and the only way I could use it was to take off the cowling, covering the spring and cable and force the spring into a lock position. After threatening to return unit for refund dealer replaced entire chute control including spring and cables. After that unit performed perfectly. I purchased this model because of this feature and it turns out to be poorly designed. March 28, 2014
