Q: Kriss, what is liftgate service and will my snowblower arrive fully assembled?
by Arthur McKean from Massachusetts on December 01, 2011

A: The lift gate service is the hydraulic lift on the back of the semi truck, which lowers the unit onto the ground for you. With us using common carriers, this is an extra cost coming from them.

The snow blower is going to need minor assembly with the handle bars needing to be pulled into their upright position and the chute needing to be attached.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: Kriss,
Still reserching. 30" deluxe versus platinum. How does the auto traction work? Are there any disadvantages? How do they work for transport across yard? Have long gravel drive and do pond for skating.

by Ralph from Michigan on September 30, 2011

A: The differences are going to come in the options as you know, but will also come in engine size, which having a bigger engine can be benficial when it comes to the wet heavy snows. The auto traction drive is going to work similar to the locking clutches on other units if you are familiar except you don't have have the clutches. When you start to lean into a turn the snow blower will sense this and one wheel will stay locked in as the other slows helping you make the turn on a dime. Not too many disadvantages except you may run into a situation where you may hit a stone or bump and the unit may want to try to steer that direction. Transport would not be difficult, you would just want to raise up on it and don't engage the auger.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: I am interested in the Ariens 28 Deluxe model, as it is more in my price range. I know that this model does not have traction control My concern is how hard is it to turn the Ariens 28 Deluxe 180 degrees. Keep in mind that when answering, note that I have a bad shoulder. Thanks.

Thanks.

by Rob from New York on August 08, 2011

A: This unit is not going to be a great deal harder to turn. It will have a lock out clutch on the left hand side to lock out a wheel to help make turning easier. This is not going to be as easy as auto traction drive, but not as difficult as a pin on the wheel that most people don't end up using because it becomes a pain. Another option would be to possibly look at a ST24DLE, this has the auto traction drive and is not a great deal more.

Thanks,

Snowblowerdirect And Ariens Snowblower A Christmas Wish Come Tru
We purchased the Ariens Deluxe ST28LE (28") 250cc Two-Stage Snow Blower (2013 Model) from SnowBlowersDirect.com to help us battle Wisconsin winters. The product was quickly delivered right to our door within a week of ordering. The order/delivery process was quick and easy...especially since we wouldn't have any means of hauling a new machine from the store in either of our two compact cars (free shipping was a bonus!!).

It was relatively easy to put together, even for us being... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable

Wish I Would Have Bought This Earlier...
I had been using an old Ariens that an in-law lent me for 3yrs, but they never took care of the poor thing. When I went to use the first year, it looked like it had never been greased, the oil not changed in ages and the carb. and governor were way out of adjustment. It would always clog, only throw the snow about 10ft, unless it was wet then only about 2ft.

After doing some searching around I decided to replace it with this model and boy... what a difference. I've had it for 2yrs now and... more

Very fast shipping. Truck driver was very helpful in unloading and putting it in my garage. Assembly was fairly easy. Starts on first pull, really throws the snow. Does not bog down in heavy snow, have put it through 5 ft. of snow where plow dumped it in my driveway.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again, Price

Great purchase. No more waiting for the plow. Does a fast job. Steering is limited so driveway circle is more difficult than it should be. Instructions were not great especially the chute direction adjuster. Love how fast I can do a long driveway.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions

Excellent Product - Great Support
I ordered the snow blower on a Friday, received it the next Tuesday. Unit assembly was not real clear but viewing the on-line video helps a lot.

The only issue I had was the unit was shipped with no oil in the cast iron gear case. It was very fortunate I decided to check it before operation. I called Snow Blowers Direct and they contacted Ariens. The engine had oil in it even though the instructions indicated it did not.

After I finally got the oil from Ariens (took a full week), I... more

"Snow Blowers Direct is the place to buy your snow blower. The shipping was very fast and the service was extremely good. I made a deal with the trucking company. I agreed they did not need to drive into my neighborhood and I would meet them at the local mall due to not having a turn around area for the truck. In return the truck driver helped me get the snow blower off the semi-truck and into the back of my truck even though I did not purchase the tail gate service. All-in-all, the delivery went off just great."

Old 68' 7 Hp Did It 30 Years Ago In 36" Dumps... These Are Much
Never was I let down or was I snowed in here in the U.P. of Mich. Anyone familiar with our area or Buffalo NY knows what lake effect is. Had a few other blowers but after my first 3rd hand Ariens, will never waste my money on others, sure you can save a few bucks but when it happens a snow blower is better than a shovel, especially in a drive 3/4 miles long. Just bought a new 28' Ariens and had only 6 or so inches to play in and this machine definitely has a vengeance against snow, I could... more

Waiting For 1st Snowstorm
I replaced a 20+ year old Craftsman that was like an old Harley, you use it some then work on it some. I asked a lot of friends who own Ariens snow blowers and received very positive reviews. Most said the only thing they would do if buying another would be go bigger as most bought 24" models. Assembly was pretty easy when mixed with a little common sense and some mechanical ability. I found it odd that the instructions did not state that the unit was shipped with engine oil already in... more

"I received snow blower in a crate in good condition and upon opening found no scratches dents or dings. Every part was in excellent condition. Check big box stores prices and compare I was surprised and also got the Polar Force engine by Briggs & Stratton they have been making small engines for many decades."

5 Stars But.....
I have not tested this product out yet because of no snow, but after setting it up, it started right up and ran great. Speaking of setting it up is where I would give a negative rating. I am one of those guys who LIKES to read and go exactly by the instruction manual. Well, the manual to set up really suc@#s. It took me over 3 hrs to get it going because the manual is for more than 1 machine and while you are trying to follow the next step you come to the conclusion that it is for a different... more

Great Price/high Quality
I research the internet extensively when making most of my online purchases. This snow blower was priced lower than any of the other online or retail stores I shopped. Buying a new, 2013 snow blower at a close out price, plus the extended warranty was a huge plus. The free shipping and tax free benefits saved me money also.

Snow Blowers Direct was extremely helpful in providing great preference options, videos, tutorials and advice.

The only reason for 3 stars on performance, is because I... more
