Bought 102015...no Use Till Nyc 2nd Largest Snowstorm Ever
So 10/2015, I bought the ARIENS for the engine CC size for a 24inch unit and ARIENS reputation.

Twiddling my fingers and thumbs for the past 3 months till 01232016 when NYC got hit by the 2nd largest snowstorm ever.

I live in Queens and got over 28 inches with drifts in my driveway of over 3-4 feet high. I cleared my 80 foot driveway, my walkways and my rear yard in about 8 hours.

Wow 8 hours you say that is too long. But my driveway does not allow me to pile snow on the sides. I have... more

They Don't Call Back
I was in search of a blower for the storm that was coming and found this website .. They seem to have all the answers when I was trying to buy it but then when I got it it was some what already assembled but not done correctly and now I'm stuck with it....and none to help
Cons: Bad Instructions, Difficult To Use, Packaging, The Shooter Does Not Work

Expensive But Built Like A Brickhouse
SBD is fantastic as is the bottom line price compared to getting it from other sites or locally.

The major issue is setup but if you can handle that, then you get a good deal with no tax or shipping expensive except for the lift gate service.


The price is expensive for the unit but all my local and online dealers charged same price or even more along with shipping and taxes. So in my opinion SBD delivers the best price as long as you can handle the 2 hour assemble.

As others have... more

"Ordered on 10/08/2015 and arrived via trucking company ABF on 10/14/2015. I mis-understood meaning of lift gate service and did not order it at time of order. I called and spoke to Brian at SBD late on 10/12/2015 and he upgraded my delivery to include lift gate for the normal fee of $50. Brian then faxed the updated information directly to ABF. Delivery date came and ABF showed up within the delivery time frame and brought the unit via a palletjack up to my garage which is about 80 feet from the road. It comes on a large pallet that the trucking companies use to move to and fro but directly attached to the the ARIENS box is another smaller better quality palleted that is securely attached to the ARIENS box. This is great as it isolates the box from the larger pallet and possible damage from the forklifts/palletjacks. The driver even helped to remove the unit from the larger pallet and remove it to his truck. SBD use of ABF was great and the delivery was so quick and easy to set up a delivery window. SBD also came through when I discovered my chute had interior cosmetic damages and exposed metal as well. They arranged for a can of touch up paint and a new chute to be delivered. The price is expensive for the unit but all my local and online dealers charged same price or even more along with shipping and taxes. So in my opinion SBD delivers the best price as long as you can handle the 2 hour assemble. As others have said the pictograph chart leaves a lot to be desired. I used the chart, online videos and the actual manual to reinforced the pictograph diagrams. With another person took about two hours but I took my time. The procedure if you have your tools ready should take at best less than an hour."

I Would Like All To Read This
I purchased last year in October thinking I got the very best snow blower I could. Powerful engine, headlight, HAND WARMER. But the most important thing for me is EASY TURNING, which is important for an 80 year old.

All worked well. Except for the easy turn - it simply was not true. I struggled with that machine all last year. Then I read a review on Polly skids and gave them a try.WOW what a difference.Now I have the Blower I thought I was getting.
shame on Airens for not furnishing them... more

So Far So Good.
Snowblower was shipped the same day it was ordered and arrived 5 days later. Assembly took about 40 minutes.The engine had the correct amount of oil and the scraper blade and skid shoes were already at the proper height. The wordless instructions were somewhat difficult to understand but my prior mechanical experience was a big help. I've operated older model Ariens snowblowers at work but this one has several new features that I look forward to using. My only concern is finding warranty... more
Pros: Features, High Quality, Easy To Use, One Hand Operation Of The Chute From The Control Panel
Cons: Bad Instructions, Possible Problem Obtaining Warranty Service

Works Like A Champ!
Have used this twice now in the last couple of weeks. It arrived at the tail end of the first major east coast storm of 2016, which had 2+ feet of snow in our area. This thing chewed through that, as well as the snow-plow wall at the end of the driveway without issue. Plus it shoots snow two stories high into the air.

The smaller storm we just experienced recently was much smaller, so you could expect that it had no issues with that either. This thing does everything. No problems at all... more

Ariens 921038 Assembly
Snow machine looked awesome. However had to call a repair man to assemble snow chute. Directions absolutely sucked for a layman. Additional fee of 120 for assembly. Not worth buying on line. Saved nothing.

Bought on clearance end of season. So far, seems like a robust machine. Assembly was pretty straightforward and it is ready to go for next winter.

It Is May And Ready For Snow
Gave this to my brother who will retire in a couple months. Overall a pretty impressive unit. Don't look too hard at the directions as they are broken out into such small detail as it it is hard to figure out what/where they are describing. It is not difficult to figure out the assembly process as it is practically assembled already.

One word of caution...my brother tightened down the bolts on the handles that are folded down for shipment and one of the saddle washers... more

Torque
I m up at 8000', so standard engines are sadly powered w power loss of 4% per 1000' above sea level. This gorilla eats everything and launches it above trees and low house/garage roofs. PERFECT for heavy spring "mud"
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Durable, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Abs None
