Q: Hello,

I am considering replacing my snow blower. Besides the clearing width and height, can you explain to me the key differences between Ariens 920014, 921035, and 921028?

Thanks!

by Ernie Jones from Massachusetts on August 24, 2013

A: Ernie,

The differences are mainly engine brand, engine size and impeller/auger size.

920014 = Briggs and Stratton 205cc engine, 12" impeller and 11" auger, no steering assistance and 13"x4" tires

921035 = B&S 250cc engine, 14" impeller and auger, Auto Turn steering assistance automatically slows the inside wheel during turns, 16"x5" tires, uses a crank to turn the discharge chute vs. a lever control on the other two models

921028 = Ariens 291cc engine made by LCT, 14" impeller and auger, Auto Turn steering, 16'x5' tires and heated grip hand warmers

I certainly recommend Ariens snow blowers. It's just a matter of what features are important to you.

Q: Hi Kriss,

Does the Arien Compact 24 has the dual belt auger/impeller drive system as their Deluxe model?

Thanks
Hung

by Hung from New York on October 23, 2011

A: The Compact would not offer the dual belt auger/impeller drive system. They use the single belt for the auger and impeller on the Compact models. This would only be found on Deluxe and higher models.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: Does the 920014 come ready to run, or is some assembly required?
by Mike Zavada from New York on August 28, 2011

A: Mike - the Ariens ST24LE snow blower is shipped mostly assembled. You would need to fold up the upper handle assembly and tighten up the 4 bolts that hold the upper handle in place. You will need to assemble and attach the discharge chute to the auger housing. And you will need to attach the discharge chute control rod to the discharge chute and to the upper handle assembly.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: is the snow blower direct drive or do you have to push it?
by Bob from New York on August 20, 2011

A: Bob -the Ariens 920014 has a disc drive system, so it the equivalent of a "self-propelled" unit. It has a choice of 6 forward speed settings and 2 reverse speed settings.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: If I order this model will I receive a 2011 model since it is backordered?
by Nick from South Dakota on August 09, 2011

A: We only have this years models. You would be receiving a fresh model built this year.

Q: why is the cord not included on the Ariens electric snowblower and where would you go to purchase a cord, an electric starting machine wihout the cord makes noo sense???
by Anonymous on June 16, 2011

A: The reason the cord is not added on the snow blower is because Ariens views this as another added cost when most people already have extension cords. If you needed one, we sell the Ariens 120V cords for this, but you can also use a regular extension cord for this as well.

Thanks,

Q: What is the difference between the 2010 model and the 2011 model?
by Jim from Ohio on June 10, 2011

A: The differences are going to be minimal. The only real difference is going to be the headlight. They are actually doing a mounted headlight in the dash this year due to so many problems with the lights shown in the picture.

This is the first snow blower I owned so I don't have anything to compare it to. Instructions for assembly could be more detailed, again because this is the first snow blower I owned. Machine seem to run great and was able to handle wet heavy snow without clogging up.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Bad Instructions, Heavy

I Love This Snow Blower!
Previously I had another snow blower from a different (and normally well respected) manufacturer and hated it. It would freeze up every time I let the auger stop. I used it one time and just stored it for several years. I finally gave it away. My daughter's neighbor had an Ariens Compact ST24LE & suggested it when I was purchasing one for my daughter. I used it once on my daughter's driveway and loved it so much that I bought another for our house. For mine, I even purchased the... more

Wow!!!!!
Our 10 year old snow blower quit right in the middle of winter, and we knew we still had a few storms heading our way. Living in New Hampshire you can count on it!!

It was the best snow blower my husband had ever purchased. Service was fantastic from start to finish, we had the best experience with your company and will highly recommend it to any of our friends. The machine set up so easy, glides through just about any high snow pile. Extremely high performance. Maybe the light could have... more

Bring On The Snow
The 920014 has to be homeowner's best friend. Based in Wisconsin, Ariens knows a lot about clearing snow. My continued research for a Briggs & Stratton engine found that B&S had purchased the Simplicity Lawn Tractor Company who had previously purchased Snapper Lawn Equipment. Snapper make a nice snow thrower, however, retails at $1,499. They are huge.

The theory is that anyone shopping for a *small* two stage snow blower does not care about where the engine is made. Many... more

Friction disc failure after 4 storms. Not covered under warranty. This part is considered a "Service Part". Should not have failed after less than 3 months of use! Disappointed

Secret Care Instructions Not In Manual, And Then Not Covered By
We bought an Ariens snowblower at Middleton Power Center in early fall two years ago. Part of the sales pitch was that if we bought it here (as opposed to a store like Sears) they would give us priority service so it would be fixed quickly, and it had a three year warranty. The store was pretty empty when we bought it, and we had never used a snowblower before so we asked them to teach us how to use it, which they did. We came home and happily used it for two years according to the owners... more
Cons: Bad Instructions, Unreliable, Durability

Great Snow Blower
I bought the Ariens Compact 24 because I needed a smaller snow blower with a smaller footprint in the garage. While this snow blower is smaller than my 36 inch tractor mounted wheel horse, it does a fantastic job! We had only one big snow fall this year, about 15 inches last week and the blower worked great. The snow was heavy but the Compact 24 blew it like crazy, and I used it to make paths in the yard that I don't do with the tractor and blower. I am very pleased, plenty of power, blows... more

Workhorse
The first snowstorm I used my Ariens in was by no means a wimpy one. We had greater than 2 feet of snow. This was higher than the plow on my Ariens, of course, but I was amazed and pleased at how well it performed under the circumstances. Subsequent storms did not deliver as much snow, so I knew the workhorse would deliver the goods. My Ariens just may be the best tool I have ever purchased.

Nemo Blizzard On Long Island
I purchased the 920014 in August of 2012. A good buddy of mine said Snow Blowers Direct was the way to go with the no tax and all. The shipping company left it on the curb and my wife had to try to drag it up our gravel driveway. I was at work when it was delivered and didn't want it to disappear on the curb. It was still the best way to go since I would have never gotten it in my car to get home.

I put it together in the fall and even waxed the machine twice just waiting for the winter.

My First Ariens Purchase... Definitely Not My Last.
Struggled with the smaller hand push throwers for years. What a delight! A little mechanical ability would help however you don't need to be a rocket expert to assemble this. Instructions are pretty straight forward, step by step. Took it out a couple times and I really love this.... Merry Christmas to me!!!!!!
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations
