They stay there clipped on. They are a set of extra sheer bolts for the auger if by chance you brake one. The auger take two one each side.

is it good on gravel driveways?

Answers

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!

My blower has not been started in 2 years and won’t start even with electric start do you think it is bad gas

Asked by pat January 14, 2018

Answers

If you left the fuel in it for 2 years it is bad and needs to be removed and fresh gas put in the tank. Also there is a in line fuel shut off valve check and make sure that it is not closed. try using starting fluid spray to see if it will fire up. if it starts when you use starting fluid you will know it is a fuel problem. You may need to clean the carburetor many youtube videos that can help you do this yourself. good luck hope this helps you.

Possible frozen line. Mine had to be warm (in the garage or out in the sun) to start. Also, don’t pump primer more than the recommended three times. Possibly flooded

Hi, if I order this for home delivery, will you be able to assemble the unit? Some reviews confirms this.

PURCHASED MINE IN 2012, STILL GOING STRONG, came fully assembled. great work horse, just make sure you use chains on wheels. It never stops with them on.

What is the least amount of snow you can use the snow blower with, i.e. 1-2 in.?

Asked by golfnut March 2, 2014

Answers

Zero. You start it, and go find snow. Just because there is no snow doesn't mean the unit will fail to function. It just won't blow any snow.

what material is the discharge chute made out of?

I love Home Depot! That is not due to the standard buy at a good price or that they had all i needed for a project. It is due to a problem. We recently ordered a snow thrower that was to be delivered. Home depot was going to keep the cost down buy using a local shipping company. This company seemed to have some sort of issue with their assigned task. With one phone call to home depot they quickly sorted out their problem and started to act like professionals. Home Depot used their power to help us get satisfaction and we are now ready for the horror that is a Minnesota winter. The worth of a company is not how they do daily business when all goes well. It is how they handle themselves when something goes amiss. The thrower looks good and was easy to assemble. It has all the whistles and bells i was promised and all functions nicely. The only problem I find is it did not come with any snow. Here in Minnesota that little issue will correct itself quickly enough. Thank you Big Orange

I have had this unit for 5 seasons now and have not had any snow fall it would not go through. I was worried about an engine brand I had not used before but it starts with one pull at the start of the season. It has never clogged even in wet snow and is much better that a single stage for the same price. The fact that this is Ariens value line is a plus and other that a light can't tell much difference. I like that you can set it to drive both wheels or a single one. In light snow I use one wheel be easier turning but in heave or wet snow you have have both wheels powered. My only complaint is I with it went faster in reverse. I am sure it is a safety issue but it keeps me know using the power drive in reverse and just pulling it back.

The snow blower assembly is easy - I didn't even find the directions until I was ready to install the chute (the directions are in the chute package). I haven't used it yet since my old snow blower died during the last storm of the season. But I am impressed with the heft of it so it doesn't seem to be cheaply made. I posted pics of it on my blog and a friend in NY, who works for a BBS, said last fall they sold a ton of them and not a single return. So I am hopeful that it will do well.

I've had my Ariens Sno-Tek snowblower for 2 years. So far, so good. 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.

Enough power to handle any drift or accumulation of snow thus far and even does the job when the snow is only an inch. My only recommendation is a face mask, when the wind blows it gets cold and when snow is thrown in the wind it will come back in your face.

I have owned this snow blower for 5 years now and have had an excellent experience with it. Living in Montana I have lots of opportunity to use it. In addition, I volunteer with our city to clear sidewalks and driveways for the elderly and disabled that are not able to take care of their own snow. I do all the recommended maintenance including changing the fluids more than once a year depending on hours used. I only use premium gas, preferably without ethanol, and drain the fuel tank and then run it until the carburetor is dry, with no fuel in the bowl, at season end. The next season I have not had any problems getting it started the first time. I was surprised this snow blower did not come with tire chains like my previous one. I found out they are not necessary due to the construction of the tires. I also appreciate that you are able to set this model up so that either both tires drive it or just one with the other tire free wheeling. The first option is great for deep or heavy snow as well as drifts. Having only one drive wheel makes it much easier to turn and maneuver. A nice feature. Yes, as others have mentioned, it doesn't have power steering or heated hand grips or some other fancy features that add to the cost and tend to break down, but you can't complain about the air conditioner when using it. The only items I have needed to repair/replace, other than standard tune up items, are the primer button and one of the shoe skid plates. The skid plate only had to be turned over, which was great. I will be replacing the scraper bar at the end of this season just to help prevent wear on other items if I wait to long. This is the second Ariens snow blower I have owned and I will buy another when the need arises. I also would recommend this model to anyone that needs a 2 stage snow blower.

So far, I'm not disappointed. Only used once to date. 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.

I bought this SnowTek 24" Snow Blower just in time for a 12" snow fall. I picked the machine up at the shipping company because a tractor trailer would have difficulty turning around on my street. It was easy to assemble, and started on the first pull. I like that it also has an electric start option by plugging in an extension cord. A few days later we were hit with 12" of light fluffy snow. The machine handled it with ease. The chute control works very easily and can be done on the fly. The tires had no problem moving the machine thru the deep snow. I cleared my 150' driveway and large parking area in about an hour. The next day I cleaned up heavy wet snow with thin layer of ice on it. It was no problem for this machine, tho of course it did not thow the slushy heavy snow very far. I am very pleased with this SnowTek based on my initial experience with it.
