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 Bob, 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.


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 Bob, 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

Not Worth The Cost And Trouble
I used the snow blower for five minutes and it would not shift into other gears. I attempted to adjust the shifter per the manual and parts broke on the inside of it. It will not even role any longer. I now have to send it to a dealer to get it fixed. They said this will take 6 weeks to fix. So much for having a snow blower for the snow season.
Pros: Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging, Durability, Broke After Using It For Five Min

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

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

This bad boy will move snow. I've been using the same old blower for 34 years and thought it did a good job ..... until I used my new Ariens. This moved heavy snow so far that the only people that can still it, are my neighbors when it landed in their yards. Great for me, not so good for the neighbors.

Assembly is a nightmare. I didn't think there would be so much to assemble. Instructions are out of order and confusing. The chute direction control mount is difficult and Ariens... 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

30 " Platinum 414 Cc 2014 Model
Received the Ariens snow blower yesterday with lift gate service and was able to assemble with no major glitches and tested engine which all seem to work great. The assembly video is good to watch and the only thing it misses is the assembly of the auto adjusting chute. Just waiting for snow now. The power of this machine is over 2X my previous one.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

Ariens Snow Blower:
I nearly didn't buy this product because of negative reviews, the comments about the assembly instructions, the auto turn feature and poor factory support, Which is Very Important.

As a result, I became interested in another unit, a three stage unit, which delayed my purchase. After a trip to my local Mega hardware store, and looking at an Ariens' unit, I decided to give one a try.

I have friends who've made purchases from Snow Blower Direct (SBD), they were... more

Auto Turn Is A Misnomer
I wanted tank-like steering like I had on my 7 year old Sears Craftsman. I figured if Ariens had something called Auto Turn, it ought to be better. Not true. It was worse. Sure, if you muscle it enough to one side or the other, the inside wheel lets go while the other drives a little but nothing as good as my old "triggers." Basically, after snow-blowing for a while, I was worn out with this machine.

The headlight is placed stupidly. As you lean into it in normal operations,... more

Waited Forever
Waited forever to get snow blower and kept getting delayed for a month and a half. Once I received packaged, nice no damage. However the Instructions to assemble were very vague. I'm pretty good around the shop and I had to just use my brain to put it all together. Over all started right up and everything seems to work. Just need snow to let this beast do its job.
Pros: Durable
Cons: Bad Instructions
