Q: Hi
Can you explain the real world diff between the Platnium and deluxe drive systems?? I am looking at the deluxe 30" and the Plat 24" models.

by Dave from Wisconsin on November 11, 2011

A: The difference is going to come down to options. The Platinum models are going to have remote chute control, which the Deluxe models don't have as well as the auto traction drive, this is going to allow you to turn on a dime in either direction. The Deluxe models will have a lock out trigger on your left side and this will help in making turns, but it is still not as easy as the auto traction drive. Other than this all other features would be alike if we are comparing the Deluxe 30" and a Platinum model. Obviously you can find variations in engine size, but all other features would be alike.

Q: Kriss, the impeller size on this snowblower (ST30LE (30)) is 12 or 14 inches diameter? the specs say 14 but the picture details says 12 inch. plz confirm.. thx Bernardo
by Bernardo from Connecticut on July 13, 2011

A: This is a 14" impeller. Ariens is only going to put the 12" impeller on the Compact models.

Thanks,

Q: Hi Kriss,
Will you be selling the Husqvarna 16530EXL snow blower for next winter? Also sometimes, why do I see that model with a "s" or an "sb" in the model number? I know you will probably direct me to another brand, but, I really like the Husky hydro drive over the friction-wheel drive.
John

by John from New Jersey on April 06, 2011

A: John,

The Husqvarna 16530EXL is a model not allowed to be sold online. As of right now, we are not sure what our Husqvarna lineup will be for this next season.

As of right now, I would say we most likely won't be offering this model next season unless Husqvarna changes some of their policies.

I would like to tell you the "s" and the "sb" signifies an engine or something in particular, but as far as I can tell and know, this would be an internal way for Husqvarna to designate one model series from another. It would most likely be something similar to their mowers in the "YTH" and "LGT", which means yard tractor husqvarna and lawn garden tractor.

Thanks,

Snow Blowers Direct

Living In Mn Can't Kill It
Got the machine halfway thru season, so over 2ft of snow & ice (some packed) already on the ground.

Have a really long gravel drive and road almost 300yds which the neighbor usually plows with truck. He was away when we got hit with nearly 3 feet overnight. Got the trusty beast out of the stable and did the lot better than he usually does in less than 2 hours. Benefit being the ARIENS threw all the snow way off into a field, leaving none piled up at the side of the roadway, as was... more

4 Feet And Counting....
We've survived up to this year without a snow blower, but after getting 4 feet of snow in 30 days and not being able to get fifty feet to the wood pile to keep the house warm, we broke down and decided to buy a snow blower. Driving to all the big box stores we found there were no snow blowers available, everyone else around here had the same idea.

Going online I stumbled across Snow Blowers Direct as well as other companies who had blowers available. One company was even a hundred or so... more

Well I missed the 3ft December blizzard and after that I swore I would never shovel again. I tried to find a snow blower but as you know all the stores run out of everything with the mention of the word snow.

I did a lot of research and knew what I was looking for I just couldn't find one. Then I found this site and purchased the Ariens Deluxe 30.

What a pleasure it was dealing with Snow Blowers Direct. The machine is a beast throwing snow like nothing Ive ever seen before.

Excellent Process-timely Delivery!!
We live in Maryland. We heard the forecast for "substantial snowfall" on Tuesday Feb 2, 2010. My husband recently had back surgery and was not able to shovel snow. Our area was forecasted to receive between 1 and 2 FEET of snow.

We went online and researched many snow blowers and vendors. We decided to order the Ariens from you on Wednesday and placed our order before noon. We received confirmation that the snow blower shipped that same day and a tracking number.

Snow Country
We live in the Upstate New York area that frequently experiences heavy "lake affect snow". I had an older popular brand snow blower that has been nothing but trouble in the past few years. I decided to do some research and spend the money on something that would be dependable, easy to operate, and go through the snow that we typically get up here on a regular basis. My driveway is very large, with a wide surface area that holds the heat in early winter. This causes the snow to... more

Very Disappointed
I live in Oswego, NY,and I have owned 3 Ariens snow blowers over the last 44 years. We get a lot of lake effect snow in any given year. The first 2 machines were very satisfactory. Those machines were 24 inch width.

My new machine is an upgraded 30 inch deluxe. It has good power,and accessories. My problem is that the machine is very difficult to steer and handle.

It is very heavy in the front end (unbalanced compared to my 24 inch). I am a 200 pound guy, and find it very... more

Not As Happy As I Should Be
I ordered all the right things and trusted the brand name, or at least that is what was supposed to happen. Instead I get the delivery, take about 30 minutes to get the blower off the pallet it came on, unboxed and all assembled, then spend about 3 hours trying to get the "DELUXE CAB" assembled and attached the the blower... Not an easy thing to do, you would think it would be but it is not.

Which by the way, there is no need to order the Clean Out Tool, it comes with one. NICE... more

The blower works great with the exception of being a little slow when blowing light snow falls. I run the blower in high speed almost all the time (my sons older Ariens is much faster in high gear). The blower lock and chute direction crank should be on opposite sides instead of on the same side and having to reach over awkwardly to turn the chute. Lots of power though and takes a lot to make it work.

Ariens Snow Blower
We purchased this snow blower right after our last snow storm when our old snow blower died. We are extremely happy with this snow blower. It cut our snow cleaning time in half, great machine much quieter than our old one, I would highly recommend this machine to anyone with a longer driveway like we have. Wonderful online shopping experience.

Well-built Machine!
I took delivery on time and had the minor assembly completed in 10 minutes...it's pretty easy, even without the instructions. Checked the oil, added some gas and she started on the 3rd pull. It runs much quieter than my Yard Machine 10hp. Took it around the driveway and then off to the shed. Sadly, there is no snow right now, so I'll review maybe in December. Overall, this is a solid, well-built machine and I'm pleased with my purchase.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons: It's July And There's No Snow

Great So Far
I ordered this blower to replace a Craftsman 29", 9 horse blower. Could not believe the difference in the size and weight, this unit seems to be built to last, no cheap plastic parts. The delivery was right on schedule, however the box was damaged and the top heat shield was bent. I checked for other damage and found none, so I accepted the blower. Repaired the heat shield and assembled the unit, started it up and it seems to run fine. Waiting for the next snowfall to see how it performs.

February Snow Storm
What a nice snow blower. The drive at first was a little quirky, but after 3 storms it seems to be settling in. 1 foot of snow does not seem to be a challenge and it does throw close to 50 feet, with a light powder snow. This snow blower is very quiet compared to my others and my neighbors. It also arrived in perfect condition.

I started at 9:45 A.M. and finished at 12:30 P.M.--2 hours and 45 minutes at full throttle stopping and idleing for about 30 seconds to brush snow off only once and in the 3.2 quart fuel tank I put in 1 quart and 5 oz. of gas to refill. In the same terrain with my old 10 horse JD it took, just lacking 1 full gallon to fill the tank. With the power of this unit and running that steady and the work it did I... more

Fantastic By Idaho Al
31 years ago I got my first snow blower, a 24" Ariens. It lasted 13 years before the cylinder wall blew out--("splash oiling") I would guess. You folks shipped like the reviews I read in spite of my ordering on a Saturday before Xmas and with all the holidays and trucking days off I received it 2 weeks later.

The driver brought it on a Saturday morning at 8:15 AM and helped me unload. 40 minutes later I was trying it out, in fact I got to try it out 4 days in a row here... more

I finally got fed up with my 5 year old Craftsman dieing mid-blow for the last time. After borrowing the neighbor's machine to finish the job, I came in and in about 1 minute found this machine at your site. Since I had looked at these earlier at the state fair last fall, it was an easy decision and one, which I won't regret. It arrived super quick, the free shipping was awesome, and after assembling the machine I gave it a test run. The first thing I noticed was how QUIET it was. I... more

I purchased the ST30LE before Thanksgiving of 2012. There had been no significant snowfall until Euclid slid through.

This machine had no trouble with 14 inches of snow on an unpaved driveway that is 700 feet long. Four passes (2 up and 2 down ) and the job was done.

Originally I had scoffed at the heated hand warmers, however I find them to be a nice feature. Machine starts up easy and runs strong. I am definitely well pleased with this purchase.

Good price on snow blower, came in packaged well. No visible damage. The lift gate service is worth it unless you have several able bodied people available. Assembling was not too bad, checked for oil in crankcase and started up with the pull start.

Started easily but after running for 30 sec heard a noise. Pull rope fell right out of assembly. Now I have to take to warranty dealer and they don't like it when you buy a unit elsewhere and then try to get warranty service from them, so that... more

As Advertised
Part 1: The arrival. Ordered the snow blower on Monday and it arrived here in mid-Nebraska on Wednesday. Amazing is all I can say! Good job.

Part 2: Removing the carton and getting it put together was pretty easy - didn't take too long to accomplish the task. My first attempt at using it was merely OK - I had not adjusted the cable on the lock out control, so I was only getting one wheel to drive the blower. After the adjustment was tweaked, it worked very well.

This thing is a beast. It just cuts through anything. I bought this snowblower to replace a MTD 10 hp 28" deck unit from the late 1990's which I thought was a beast. This thing blows it away!! I cannot believe how well it cuts through the hard packed snow. My old snowblower would struggle and spin the tires a lot even with tire chains. As I used it for the first time and cut through some deeper snow I expected it to slow down and it never did. I was waiting for it bog down and for... more

Machine Is A Beast
Just received my Ariens 30 in. deluxe. The order came as promised. All I had to do was cut open the box and assemble it. All in all it took about 30 minutes to do. The machine is a BEAST and is beautiful to look at. I live in the northeast and we get a lot of wet and heavy snow. I can't wait to throw that wet slop as well as the powdery snow. I had a 24 in. 2 stage and was not satisfied with the engine's power. I have a feeling that I won't have that problem anymore.

Unbelievable Snow Blower!
I purchased the deluxe 30 on 12/26/2010.....the day the blizzard began here in New Jersey. I originally didn't want something this big, but it was the last machine left in the store and it was either the deluxe 30 or a shovel. When I got it home I fueled it up and waited for the snow to come.

The next morning I fired the machine up (one pull) and began clearing my backyard (for the dogs), the driveway, sidewalks, etc. I ended up snow blowing the entire neighborhood because no one had a... more

So far, I am happy with the snow blower. However, it has not snowed and it is still in the box. What I can say is that I am happy with the condition the unit showed up in. The box was not damaged and the snow blower looks to be fine, it is still in the original carton.

Best Snowblower Ever Purchased
I used to own an Ariens snow blower about 10 years ago and decided to sell it and buy a cheaper one from a local retailer. Every few years I kept selling the store bought ones because they were junk. Parts kept falling off of them, shear pins kept breaking, and the traction was terrible. After about 8 years of owning store purchased garbage, I purchased an Ariens model 921013 and I'm glad that I did. I have survived two winters of heavy snow and without the Ariens I would have been cursing... more

Very Smooth Seamless Transaction!
I was not apprehensive about ordering online from Snow Blowers Direct, and after receiving my Ariens Deluxe ST30LE I am a very happy customer. I had done some checking on local prices and the SB Direct beat them all coupled with no sales tax and free shipping it was a win-win situation. I knew (or at least was hoping) I wouldn't need the machine for a few months so I made use of the "Pay by Check" offer and saved some additional money (I also ordered during the pre-season sale).

Deliver And Assembly Remarks
I have not had the opportunity to actually use this snowblower yet... from appearances... Seems like a very solid machine. Thought it worth noting the delivery was quick... It comes in a sizable box and is well protected.

The assembly was very simple... I didn't read the instructions and had it done in about 20 minutes. If I had read the instructions, I would have put some grease at the base of the chute before bolting it on. Tires needed more air.

One other observation... it being... more

I bought my snow blower early so have not used it yet but with that said it came on time and in perfect

shape, the ordering process was as easy, I am very pleased with every thing at this point, I am sure the

blower will work as good as it look's. As for the cab it is nice as well, just some mounting concerns, the hardware

does not fit real well and the cab needs a little more support at the back, out side of that very pleased.

Very Good Blower
It's a very nice product but in that video it must be a higher-end model with a bigger motor, or that guy got lucky and got a strong one. It looks like it's blowing maybe 40ft or more. My 921013 (305cc) blows the snow about 30-32ft at the most, which is good enough and gets it out of the way. I have a double-wide driveway and it clears the other side. That's all I wanted.. but I think advertising 50ft is stretching it. Maybe with some 25-30mph winds it could blow it 50ft, but with a normal... more

My buying experience with Snowblowers Direct has been very good. Delivery time was much better than expected and the blower got here in perfect condition. Winter hasn't arrived yet here in the northwest yet, but when it does, I'll be ready.

Great Service
Ordered the ST30LE and have been very pleased with it so far. Service was great for ordering the snow blower as well as the spare shear pins.

Easy to put together and powerful enough to cut through wet ice from the worst winter we have had in over 100 years. Can use a bit more weight to keep the nose down, but overall very pleased so far.

Ariens Deluxe St30le (30") 305cc Two-stage Snow Blower
I must say this was one the best experiences of dealing with a dealer over the Internet. All as promised. New in the box, delivery was on time and early, just in time before the snow storm hit.

All around I will buy again from Snow Blowers Direct. Not only free shipping, no tax and great prices, what more can you ask?

The only down size I had about the snow thrower was it doesn't shoot 50 ft high. The most is like 30 ft but awesome machine.

Thanks Snow Blowers Direct

Monster Snowblower For Ny
I purchased the snow blower late in the season, but I had the chance to use it several times in over 2 feet of snow. It's a monster, the machine maneuvers better than I thought it would for its size and goes through heavy wet snow with ease. I am very happy with my purchase.

I was looking for a heavy duty snow blower for a long time because I have a large 250 ft gravel driveway leading up to my business. I price-compared your costs to some local suppliers and could not believe how much more reasonable your prices were to theirs.

I was skeptical and thought that maybe there would be a problem with stock or delivery but I was very happy when I received an email minutes after ordering saying that it was in-stock and I could not believe that it showed up at my home... more

Works Fine
The only problem we have had is with the delivery -- because of bad weather the trucking company would not deliver to the house, so we had to go to Wallingford, Conn. to pick the thing up. Luckily it would fit in the SUV. But we wasted the $50 we had paid for lift-gate delivery.

Does The Job As Advertised
Received my snowblower the morning before our second snowfall of the season (unfortunately I didn't have it for the 24 inches that fell in December). It went through the 6 inch snowfall like there was nothing there.

Very easy to use that I did my driveway and several of my neighbors as well. This week was another 18 inches of heavy snow. The Ariens handled it with no issues. Thankfully we decided to get this snowblower.

Dealing with Snow Blowers Direct was a pleasure. They were... more

Third Time Lucky
After the two snowstorms that hit my region at end-December/Early January I decided to do something about it. A snow plow for my truck, a snowblower PTO attachment for my tractor, or a snow blower/thrower. After much consideration and economic consideration I settled on a snow blower/thrower. Ariens had always, in my opinion, had a good reputation and I decided to go for the model with the large engine, 30 inch-wide cut, and with electric start.

The third storm that came through last... more

Let It Snow
After many frugal years I decided to invest in a snowblower a few days before a big snow storm. Shipping was very fast and got to me in a couple of days.

I had about 18" on my driveway and this blower got rid of it in minutes. It normally took me about 3-4 hours to shovel. I don't have much to compare this model to but there are no regrets and no drawbacks. If you do get it you'll be amazed at how many friends want to see you after it snows.

Great Service, Great Product
I did a lot of searching on the internet and finally selected the Ariens Deluxe 30" Two-Stage as I have a very long driveway. Three uses so far and it has worked like a charm. Snow Blowers Direct was "as advertised", I ordered the blower late on Tuesday, it shipped Wednesday and arrived in NJ at 9AM Friday morning. Minimal assembly took about 30 minutes. Great service and a good product.

Assembly of the Snow Blower was quite good until I got to the Chute Deflector control, and I must say that I am a bit surprised that such a finely engineered piece of equipment has such a shabby chute deflector control. Ariens... more

I purchased the snowblower last year after Washington DC's two big snowstorms. I'll never have to shovel like that again. I'm originally from Mass. and was familiar with Ariens. The machine is fantastic. Starts easy and is easy to use. More than enough power.

The unit originally came with a broken drive lever. Called and got the new one within two days. More than happy. I think two co-workers also bought from Snow Blowers Direct after my recommendation. The non-stick spray works... more

Delivery Is Misleading
I like the snowblower. But: Instead of the 3-4 day delivery estimate, it took 12 days from when I placed the order. I had to call the carrier several times to track it. It switched carriers twice supposedly to a smaller delivery truck. But then it showed up on a 48 ft. semi. Even though I live less than a mile off of the State Highway, I had to take the canopy off of my pickup, meet the semi, off-load into my pickup and unload it myself at home. The semi had a lift gate, but that did not... more

Extremely Pleased, Can't Wait Until The Next Big Storm.
I was extremely pleased with my new Ariens snowblower on how easy it was to assemble and how well it functioned.

Others have complained about having to reach out to change the direction of the chute; as for me it was not a problem.

If I had this snowblower when we got hit with the two snow storms, I could have done my driveway in about an hour instead of 4 hours using my old blower.

Can't wait until the next big storm.

Never have I had this wonderful a service from any other company. I will order from them again and refer this company to everyone.

Would Prefer Chute Control On The Console
I purchased an Ariens 30" snow blower w/o the chute directional control on the console. I reside in Big Bear Lake, CA and we received 6 feet of snow in January, 2010.

The Ariens blower did a great job, however, I would prefer the chute directional control on the console as it is very awkward to reach forward to turn the chute handle.

I think Ariens should place the chute control on the console of all their models for convenience and safety. My neighbor owns an older 32"... more

Poster Child For Snowblowers
Dumbest luck, but I actually had my Ariens delivered the day before DC Metro's big December storm.

After our second big storm last weekend, I only wish I had bought one sooner. I was always wary about its danger- but after reading the manual cover to cover and giving it healthy respect and caution, just about any can use one.

It's embarrassing how quickly it clears the 3100 sq ft of driveway we have ... I start later and finish earlier; then I can help tidy up the aprons of my adjacent... more

The snowthrower looks great in my garage, and is ready to go.

But, it hasn't snowed since I received it... I figure since I bought it, it won't snow again for three years?

So, everyone in the neighborhood is very happy I bought it!

Snowblower
Just to let you know we love the new blower!

We looked here in Columbus and for anything that was close to our Ariens it was about $700 higher. It came quickly to our home from the shipping company.

Our next blower will definitely be another one from SnowblowerDirect.com. Thanks again!

P.S. We couldn't even find a blower in Columbus as they were all sold out because of that bad snow storm, which now we are glad of because this is such a nice one.

I bought this blower new in early December of 09 and I now have used it 4 times.

The first snow was 16" of powder, the blower worked great considering I had to go through drifts higher than the engine. I did find that the low gear moves the blower too fast for deep snow. I would like a slower speed for drifts.

The next two snows were 4" and this was a walk in the park. The chute adjustment (ice drill) works great and the remote locking axle is a must as it made turning... more

Used it once, the remote locker doesn't really work, mainly allows you to unlock the axle to push it around the garage, not usefull during operation. If you must have an Ariens get the platinum or pro. I found a 2011 left over 1330SE at a dealership brand new. It is awesome, same engine as this snowblower, plenty of power, just threw 6" of slushy snow as far as the Ariens did when i had it. The electric chute is awesome.

My Problem With My Ariens 2-stage
When I purchased it I was told it would not pick up gravel, as my driveway is gravel and compacted pretty darn good. First time I was able to use it was this year and to my surprise I do have it adjusted as high as it will go but still picked up stone and went into my yard and now I have another mess too clean up when weather allows me to do so but I do think it would work for me if it wasn't for that.
