Q: Ariens Snowblower: What is the difference between the Hydro Pro and ST28DLE snowblowesr? Is one any better than the other? Is $400 better?
by Russell from California on October 07, 2013

A: The only difference in these models is going to be the drive system. The units are identical except the ST28DLE is going to be the old standard friction disc drive system. The Hydro Pro is exactly that, it would use a hydrostatic transmission as opposed to the friction disc. The hydrostatic is going to cost more because it is a fluid driven system which typically reduces stress and more importantly on a snow blower is offers a smooth drive which puts less stress on the end user.

Q: hello, I will be purchasing Ariens Professional ST28DLE 28 420cc TwoStage Snow Blower from your website and I am wondering does it come with oil in engine? does gear case come filled with proper oil? Will this item still be shipping out Aug. 29? thank you for your time and I look forward to doing business with you.

by Steve Tyler from Massachusetts on August 27, 2013

A: Steve,

You have chosen pretty much the best blower we offer. There is no oil in the engine but the blower may come with a bottle of oil. You will need to have oil on hand anyway because the first scheduled oil change is usually after only 2 hours of use. Any oil found in the engine is leftover from the test run at Ariens' factory.

The gear case is filled with the correct amount of oil at the factory. Ariens recommends checking the oil level every 25 hours or once every season.

Use only Ariens L-3 synthetic
severe duty gear lube (Part Number

This blower should ship out of Chicago 8/26 or 8/27/2013. Please send me any other questions that come up.

Q: Do I have to buy the Pro model in the Ariens line to get the auto traction assist (diferential lock)? Thanks...
by Dave from Massachusetts on September 21, 2011

A: Dave,

You would not have to purchase correct a Pro model from Ariens. You also have this option in the Ariens Platinum Deluxe models as well.

The Ariens ST28DLE Pro two-stage snow blower is ideal for heavy residential or commercial use. This model is capable of clearing an area of up to 2,000 sq ft in under an hour and can easily handle snowfall totals of 12" or more.

The Ariens ST28DLE is powered by a 420cc Ariens Polar Force engine (made by Briggs & Stratton). Fire this machine up in just a few seconds using the 120-volt electric start system. The large 5.9 quart fuel tank will give you close to 90 minutes of... more

Snow Blower Beast
This machine is incredible. For the power it has it is very easy to maneuver. You can tell that the quality is well worth the price. Hand warmers are a huge add on.

This is my first snow blower but I was able to do my treacherous driveway after the blizzard we just had in under 20 minutes. Has made snowstorms a non-issue. I can reach my neighbors yard with the snow!

Only complaint is that the high speed reverse is not that fast, wish it was quicker.

Awesome machine, very... more

Already broke two sheer pins in 6 inches of snow...shoulda got a Craftsman instead.
Marissa, the Snow Blower Expert
Product Expert
Typically this is a pretty easy fix. All you do is just replace those broken pins and the snow blower should be good to go again. If you need more shear pins or help of any kind, feel free to contact us at 800-710-7499.
Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
The Ariens Company is sorry the machine is not meeting your expectations. The shear pin is a safety device designed to shear in the case of a mechanical overload, preventing other, more expensive parts from being damaged. Although you consider them as broke, they are actually doing their job. These break when running into a hard object, like an ice chunk for example.

If you have any further questions for Ariens, please don't hesitate to contact us at 920.756.4688.

It Does What It Says It Will Do!
I researched allot of machines before I settled on buying this one. I looked at them all. I was worried that it would not live up to what they said it would do until we have had all these snow storm this year. This machine went right through all the drifts and snow that came our way. It would throw the snow all the way into my neighbors yard. Unbelievable! Start 1st pull every time. No complaints at all.

The old saying you get what you pay for is right. I am glad I spent a little more on... more

Ariens St28dle Professional
It is Feb15th 2015 and I live just outside Boston Ma. We have 5 feet on the ground and woke to another 2 feet in my driveway. My old Toro can not reach the top of the 7 to 8 foot banks, so I hired a person that came in with the Ariens 28" pro.

Not only did he clean my driveway but 3 other neighbors as well. Walked through the walls the plows left at the end and widened my drive to the edges. I am sold on this machine. The only problem is right now they are totally sold out. Like trying... more

Very Nice Snowblower That Really Blows The Snow!
I've used my snow blower several times now, including during Detroit's biggest singe snowfall ever (16.7") and it does a GREAT job of moving the snow.

I don't have a comparison to know if a lesser machine would do as well, but I have almost no complaints about this one.

The only thing I would change is that the light is sometimes blocked by the discharge chute, depending on the position but it still works pretty well and I definitely wouldn't want a snow blower without a light.

Phenomenal Machine
I purchased this snow blower for my house in New York. I have used it for snow and heavy, wet snow. This is a phenomenal machine. I know it's a lot to spend on a piece of equipment, but you get what you pay for. And you wont be disappointed.

Very easy to operate and steer. Before I had this Ariens snow blower, I had an 1959 AMF polar bear snowblower. It was good; but as time went on, the parts were hard to find. I had to resort to fabricating new pieces.

I had this brand before, an... more

Do Your Homework!
For thirty years, I either shoveled to keep in shape or used a snow thrower to assist. When I bought my house in 2007 I realized shoveling a 175' driveway was not going to have much appeal.

I did my homework and found that Ariens model 926038 could handle anything Mother Nature throws at us. Now, I do my driveway and the sidewalks in less than 20 minutes with ease.

This machine by far is the machine for a homeowner due to its durability and relentless power. I pull to start and not once... more

Blows Everything Away ---------
To start off, this is my 3rd snowblower. My first one is an electric Black and Decker - used it for one season and gave it away. Then I got a 24" 5.5hp 2 stage from Sears 5 years ago (about $600). It works fine, only problem is with wet snow, always got jammed and stuck. Both blowers are for use at my house. So, I am not a newb. Now I have a small office building myself. I need something powerful enough to clean my 14 cars packing lot, darn long driveway and sidewalk.

Snow Monster
I live high on the East bench of Salt Lake City / Bountiful. I have a long and quite steep driveway. When I moved in my neighbors recommended I buy the best snow thrower I could find. After extensive research I decided on this one. Here are my thoughts:

-Made in the USA
-Quality: This thing is built like a tank and appears to be over-engineered in a lot of areas. There is nothing that looks or feels cheap about this machine, and I expect it will be around for a long time.
