Q: does the unit have heated handles?
by Scott F from Virginia on January 24, 2016

A: Scott - the Ariens model 921044 does not come with heated hand grips. They can be installed, but they don't come as standard on this model. This would be the heated hand grip kit that is compatible with this snow blower: heated hand grips

Going Ariens 'beastmode' In Larkspur, Colorado
This has been a 100% positive experience - Here I am, one day shy of my 59th birthday, and all I can ask myself is "why didn't I get this snowblower decades ago??". Fourteen inches of snow finished falling just a few hours ago, and I had my first opportunity to use my new Ariens. For context, I must allow that this is the first and only snowblower/thrower I have ever operated, but that won't keep me from observing that this Ariens is a monster.

I blasted through level surfaces... more

Stalling Out
First time user during 30 inches in NJ was a disaster.

Started up instantly and worked OK for a half hour and I thought it ran out of gas after it stalled. Filled it and would not start again until it got cold. Appears it did not run dry but just stalls after usage for a while. Dealer has picked it up and thinks maybe the fuel shut off is defective.

Referred to Ariens and he sent me a video of how to use the choke, which was insulting since I was using it according to procedure and about... more

Made In Usa Proudly Made Well !
The assembly of this when I arrived was extremely simple and I could tell the construction was solid steel and made for the duration. As I started it and entered the snow I was aware of its power!

And that's why I bought it. I live in Minnesota, and often need to dig out. My work now, she'll be easy as I am only as good as my tools- thank you for making a quality product available at a very good price.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Easy To Use, Price

I have been very happy with this snowblower. So far it starts right up first pull and runs great. Living in a Northern Utah mountain town we get a LOT of snow, and so far after about six weeks there hasn't been a storm yet that this thing won't just plow right through. My only advice would be start in a slow speed, not because the machine can't chew enough to go faster, but because it will drag you into places you don't intend to go if you let it, Ha-ha.

My only CON in the whole buying... more
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, powerful

2015 Ariens Sho 306cc Snowblower
Great deal on this machine. Snowblowersdirect.com did a fantastic job with my order and delivery was smooth as silk. No complaints at all to be honest.

The only thing that I have an issue with is the discharge chute likes to drift while I am snow blowing. That is frustrating to no end.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Price, Reliable
Cons: Discharge chute doesn't stay in place, it jiggles around

Works Great And Well Made
This is only my second snow blower but it is better in all respects than the first. The distance that it throws snow is amazing. I have had great luck with the auto steer so far.

I am considering showing my wife how to use this one because it is much easier to control than my last one. The price is higher but the quality build is easy to see.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

Pretty Good Machine - Bought End Of Dec 2015
overall it has been a good machine so far. Starts great, runs fine (except for one issue I'll mention later) - it took a little time to get used to having the chute crank in front of the handles and controls as opposed to being in the back like I'm used to. It certainly throws a lot of snow and far. The engine is set up to idle down when there isn't a lot of load on it, then ramps up when you get into heavier stuff.

The steering is awesome - it sends power to the turning wheel... more

East Coast Storm Of The Century
Got the Deluxe SHO 28 about a month ago and all we had was nice warm spring weather. I also had a lot of people give me a hard time about buying a new snow blower especially since this is an El Nino year and with it comes a mild winter.

Guess what, mother nature fooled us all and gave me something to laugh about when all the warnings came in about Snow Storm of the Century.

Early this morning after it snowed all night and laid down 20+ inches of snow, I cranked up my one pull and start... more

My First Snowblower
I ordered it Sunday was delivered on Thursday. Arrived in excellent condition,by the time I got outside the driver already had it up the driveway in front of the shed. assembly was a breeze, only problem I had was in the primer. Every time you pushed the primer the gas does not go in the carburetor it goes on the floor.

I think the hose is cracked, when the weather gets warm I will take it apart and fix it, There is no hurry the machine starts fine without it and the gas only leaks when... more

Ariens Deluxe 28 Sho
I could not wait for a heavy snow fall to try my new Ariens. Well last week we had a blizzard in New York.
My Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO ate through 4 to 5 feet of snow in a breeze. My only problem once I shut off the snow blower, I had a hard time of re-starting it.

The Ariens worked as expected and handled very well. I would recommended it to anyone.

So Far So Good!!!
Received delivery of the Arien 28" sho snow blower a week before Christmas. Shipped from Snow Blowers Direct with not a problem, took about 30 minutes to assemble including installing the composite shoes. Today was the first storm of the year and quit a big one on Long Island.

The snow blower just ate up 8" without a struggle. Very impressed with the out come. Controls very user friendly, and let me tell you the Led light at night is a real cool and safe feature. Highly recommended... more
