  4 Questions
Q: Is this a battery start or electric cord? Is there a recoil backup?
Ariens model #921029

by Bill Williams from New Jersey on September 13, 2014

A: Bill - the Ariens 921029 has a 110v electric start, so it uses a cord, not a battery. There is also a recoil start back up as well.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: Can I use this snow blower on a rock driveway?
by John Smith from Idaho on September 25, 2013

A: Yes, all two stage snow blowers are safe for use on non-paved surfaces. When removing snow, a small layer of snow will remain on the surface rather than scraping right down to the driveway surface like a single stage snow blower does.
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: I have been looking at ST30 DLE 414cc and ST# DLE 342cc. Which one is better? Looks like prices are the same $1,599.99.

Thanks

by Toshimi Shimizu from Minnesota on August 28, 2013

A: Toshimi,

The real difference is in the engine manufacturer and size. Briggs and Stratton has a much longer proven track record. LCT has not been around as long but I am not aware of any problems with their engines either. There is a minor difference in tire size as well.

921029 414cc - Ariens engine made by LCT, engine size 414cc, tires 16x5

921018 342cc - Briggs and Stratton engine size 342cc, tires 15x5
by Joe, Product Expert

Q: what is the horsepower
by Gerald Butler from Connecticut on August 27, 2013

A: When it comes to smaller engines, manufacturers rarely if ever list HP any longer for legal reasons. With there not being a conversion which is accurate to convert cc's to HP, it is tough to gauge exactly what the HP is, but if you were to rate this unit roughly, it would be 11-13HP depending on the torque setting.

Excellent Snowthrower - But A Little Complicated
I bought this snow thrower and I love it.

It's a Beast of a Machine and a pleasure to use. Hand warmers aren't that useful through your gloves, and with all of the controls, its a two handed operation that reminds me of driving a stick shift.

Throws the snow in a beautiful Arc. Fun to use and a big help in a storm!
Pros: Features, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Difficult To Use

Great Snow Blower, Smooth Buying Experience
This thing is a beast. Plenty of power and the top speed is too fast unless you want a light jog! Very controllable with the auto-steering etc. Thanks to the large wheels and the carefully placed center of gravity, this 30" monster is easier to move around with no power than my old 22" craftsman. The wheels are twice the size! I also love the handwarmers and just the overall ease of control of this machine.

I got a couple of extra bits - we bought the non marking skid shoes... more

"I would use snowblowersdirect.com again in a heartbeat - for such a large machine the process was as easy as could be. Just make sure you realize the $50 charge for the lift gate - you are going to need it! I understand the marketing benefit of claiming free shipping, but it really isn't unless you happen to have a loading dock in your house. That said, the wonder of getting a high end device without having to talk to a dealer and get every variant of hard sell/upsell is just wonderful."

Great Snow Blower... But
The new Ariens snow blower is great, especially during our recent 22" snowfall. It started easily and cleared my 1000 square foot driveway in record time.

The but in the headline is for Snow Blower Direct. I ordered a package of Ariens shear bolts and I am still waiting for delivery. Hope the come soon.

Grandson Loves It!
Our grandson lives in Western New York in the area that got hit with 5-7 feet of snow this past November. We live in East Tennessee.

We decided that his Christmas present (for the next couple of years!) would be a snow blower. We got online and found your site, texted him the website, and said pick out what you want.

He did have a $ limit to work within! What he picked was on back order but in fact arrived earlier than expected. Thank you. When he realized it had heated handles he was so... more

Great Machine
Used it for the first time and it moved what was basically 3 inches of slush with no problem. Not even a clog. Real easy to operate. Just one constructive complaint. The fuel tank is too small.

46 Years Of Blowing Snow
Two things can make a walk behind difficult to use. They are spinning tires and the front end climbing up in heavy or packed snow. This blower has those solved in the design. The weight on this machine is favoring the heavy front end design because of its wheels are located more to the rear, compared to other machines. In the show room this makes the machine feel less nimble and heavy and might scare away some sales. Out in the snow plow berm at the end of the driveway, this machine's front end... more
Pros: High Quality

Great Snow Blower!
I purchased this snow blower in October. It has been used in the past three 2014 Northeast snowstorms. It is powerful enough to handle the worst snow we have had here in New York. Obviously, YOU have to realize this snow blower, like any machine, does have it's limitations. You should know how to work the snow blower within these limits. On that topic this Ariens ST30DLE is more powerful than any snow blower I have used. I am completely satisfied with my purchase thru Snow Blowers Direct. I... more

Rocky Mountain Winter
I purchased this Ariens Snow Thrower from SBD using the pay by check option. That worked pretty well and we saved a little bit of money. We did not spend the extra $50 for "Lift Gate Service" . It was shipped UPS ground and all of those UPS ground freight trucks have elevator gates on them. The driver was happy to lower it to the ground and help me get it up my driveway with his manual forklift. No problem. Not sure what the extra $50 would have got me? The UPS driver even stayed... more

Push Nut In A Bad Place
I have yet to use this monster of a snow blower. So my PROs and CONs should be taken with a grain of salt.

There are some assembly videos of earlier model Ariens snow blowers on YouTube. They help by providing a visual, but this machine assembled slightly differently than the videos. So read the instructions carefully, even if you think you've got the video down cold, which I thought. As a consequence I assembled and disassembled the handle bars a few times before I got it right. Also... more
