  1 Question
Q: Ariens Deluxe ST28LE: Can you help me decide between the 2013 and 2014 model? There is a slight price difference but I do see any major design differences. The 2014 is 4cc larger but I don't see any torque specs to compare. Were there any design flaws noted in the 2013 model that are resolved in the 2014 model? Thank you!
by Mark Gossman from Minnesota on July 31, 2013

A: Mark,

The 2013 model uses a Briggs and Stratton engine and has wheel lock turning. That allows you to set one wheel in freewheel mode allowing easier turns. That free wheel does not receive power so you have a one wheel drive blower until you manually reengage the wheel.

The 2014 model no longer uses the Briggs and Stratton engine. Instead it uses an Ariens engine made by LCT. Rather than the wheel lock it has auto-turn steering which senses turns and automatically slows down the inside wheel. This allows for tight and easy turns.

No design flaws in 2013. Just an engine and steering change for 2014.

Satisfied!
I ordered my snowblower about three weeks ago. Arrived safe and sound. Took my time assembling it. Went together flawlessly. Fired up on the third pull after priming it. Love the auto-turn feature.

Fast forward three weeks. Mother Nature gave us our first snowfall of about three inches. I went into the garage, primed it and gave it ONE pull and away we went! It was so much of a positive experience that I went across the street to do our neighbor's driveway.

It ran very well and I... more

Lemon
Purchased last year and ran good except sputtered some. This year it is hard to start and runs a few seconds. I have changed the gas, spark plug, and cleaned the carburetor...nothing seems to help. A lemon for sure!

Short Of Engine Power
I purchased the unit last winter, assembly was easy, start up is a little tricky but unfortunately the engine lacks necessary power to cut into snow path at 28". The CC is suppose to be 254cc. I still have my old 24" Simiplicty Blower which is a 8 horse power engine by B&G which is a strong engine, a working machine. Ariens in the past always made a good machine. I definitely suggest Ariens seriously needs to push the CC's up to 300 cc engine for its 28" snow machine.

Extremely Satisfied Customer
I bought my Ariens Deluxe 28" in September of 2013. I have now used it for 2 winters, and I could not be more satisfied. Snow Blowers Direct delivered the machine as they said with no shipping and no tax. It was delivered to my garage.

It arrived on time and in perfect condition. Assembly was easy, and it started immediately. This machine handles 12" of snow as if it is hungry for more. Plus it's easy to handle. I love the auto turn feature where the inside wheel quits pulling... more

Won't Go Straight.
I just purchased this blower and it constantly wants to turn randomly. It's a known Ariens issue that can be helped by buying different skids. Ariens should supply the upgraded skids but doesn't.

Over Sold Description
I followed the small font written instructions and even smaller illustrations in the manual and could not get the speed selector arm to shift. They don't tell you to remove the foam tape securing the traction and auger levers in the engaged position. I took a gamble and removed the tape which solved that problem.

A good deal of the instructions tell you to do something that has already been done at the factory (but how would you know that?). If you can read hieroglyphics, then you'll... more

Have Not Used It Yet, Thank God.
Even in Minnesota it has not snowed enough (Oct. 7) to get the snow blower out yet to use it.

The snow blower was pretty easy to put together, with instructions that were okay to read and understand.

Worth Every Dollar!
My Ariens 921030 has been waiting patiently for our first significant snowfall. We received 3" two days ago, then another of 6" last night. Both snows were wet, and heavy to move by hand. Fueled the thrower, primed the carb, and started it for the first time, manually, on the third pull. Now starts on the first pull. The "auto-turn" feature works as advertised - you can operate forward/backward speed partially engage the lever which keeps the impellers moving then, use the... more
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Price, Fast
Cons: No Separate Onoff Switch For Headlight

Solid Build Quality But Underpowered
I recently purchased this snow blower and I am very happy with the build quality. The dash is steel along with the discharge chute. The controls are well designed and the headlight is unobstructed, bright and nicely integrated in the dash. The Carlisle X-Trac tires have substantial tread blocks and bite into the snow pretty well, however the 15 inch wheels are a little small for a machine of this size. The Ariens AX 254cc engine made by LCT is surprisingly well designed and built and also has... more
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Underpowered, Tires Are On The Small Side

Ariens Quality
This is my first gas blower - after the Blizzard of 2/13 I decided my faithful Toro electric would not able to handle another 28" snowfall.
After researching all the brands I bought the Ariens - this machine is extremely well built - and with the 254 cc engine I don't foresee any difficulties with a large snowfall.

The engine started right up first try - some say it is noisy but I find it no louder than a gas lawnmower. The turn sensing feature works really well and the choice of... more
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, New Turn Sensing Feature Works Great - Very Well Built

"Ordered online - no hassle at all. I paid extra for the liftgate service - got a call when truck was within 15 minutes of my house - driver dropped the unit exactly where I wanted it. Unit was packed very securely in a wood framed box on a pallet which the driver was nice enough to take back with him. Would definitely order from Snow Blowers Direct again!"
