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.

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

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!

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

Well Built, Except The Engine.
Overall this snow blower works well, but the engine performance is below what I expected from Ariens.
It starts easy, and gets great traction, even on hills.

The one-hand operation is nice , allowing you to turn the chute while still moving. The easy turn mechanism works well, but if you catch a crack in the driveway, it thinks you are trying to turn, and it turns for you.

But the engine appears to be a cheap Chinese built thing, not an Ariens engine. It seems to run richer than it... more
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Poor Engine, Burns A Lot Of Gas

My Last Snowblower Purchase
At my age I won't wear it out. It came to me not all assembled. Nuts and bolts that hold augers to gear box in center were not there. The supports holding auger and gear assembly to the inner shroud were just hanging! Had to call the Ariens for parts. Its a beautiful machine! THANK YOU!!
Pros: Features, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Easy To Store

No problem throwing a few inches if light fluffy snow or deep heavy snow. The deeper the snow the more I was impressed with it.

Ariens St28le
I just got the machine a couple of weeks ago and have used it twice and will again tomorrow. I am still getting used to the controls. They are simple but this is my first snow blower. I shoveled until I threw my back out doing it. The blower throws the Colorado snow and is powerful. The construction of the blower is quality. I have yet to use it on wet snow as in Colorado mountains the snow is dry until late March. I'll update the site then.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Features, Reliable

Think Twice If Your High.
By high, I mean altitude. At 5000ft I'm under the height for a carb adjustment but high enough too loose 20% power. I'd loose the 20% even if the carb was adjusted perfectly. That coupled with using pump gas with ethanol which costs another 10% and the blower bogs down in deep snow in low gear. If you live at altitude I'd recommend two things. Get the biggest motor you can afford and run the blower on MOGAS. with no ethanol and no additives you can tell the difference in performance and fuel... more
