  2 Questions
Q: Looking at the reviews many people complained about the difficulty of tight turns, including yourself. If you look at the video supplied by Ariens, it shows tight turns being done easily with the Auto Turn. Is this a standard feature in the new Professional model that was not previously offered?
by Mark from New Hampshire on November 28, 2013

A: Since this is a new feature for the same model, the reviews and Q&A forums cross over. The new 'Auto-Turn' for this year actually makes tight turning much easier and pretty much not an issue at all. What you are reading is from the same model, just without 'Auto-Turn'.
by Joe, Product Expert
Q: A few reviewers mentioned that the drive speed, even on the fastest setting, seemed slow. Even more so in reverse. Could you comment on this as compared to other models in this price range? I do have a sloping driveway and tracks sound like a good way to go over tires, but are tracked models slower?

Thanks for your help

by Dave P. from Utah on October 04, 2013

A: This would all be true in the consideration of track units as a whole. It would not matter if you were looking at a Honda, Husqvarna, Cub Cadet or Ariens for that matter.

When it comes to the track models, speed is not going to be their strong suit. What the tracks do is add extra weight with the drive system and in the tracks themselves, by doing this they ultimately end up providing slower drives all together. Think of a tank with tracks and some of the other vehicles the military will use with wheels. The speed factor is significant. Even though the speed of tanks has gotten much faster over time, they still are usually slower than something with wheels.

They will give you the traction you would need for slopes and steep grades, as well as being beneficial when going off the beaten path by having different settings in terms of auger adjustment. Another benefit is the ability track units will have when it comes to removing the slush ice/snow left behind by plows at the end of the driveway. Where wheeled units typically need to be fought in order to dig into the mess a track unit will dive right in.

Very Pleased With This Snow Blower...
We received approximate 8”-10” of snow and I was able to put our new Ariens Professional Track ST28DLET (28") 420cc two-stage snow blower to use this week. What a machine!!! Let’s back up and start from the beginning when I was trying to decide on which snow blower to purchase. I first emailed Bob and he gave me his opinion on several questions I posed to him concerning engine size and wheeled VS tracked snow blowers. He answered all the questions thoroughly and I was able to feel... more

Lots Of Bells And Whistles
Since there is no snow on the ground, I have not been able to test the capabilities of the Ariens snowthrower.

It does, however, appear to be a fine piece of equipment. I did, nevertheless, have a dickens of a time putting the unit together. It was the most difficult DIY that I have ever experienced. That may have been due to the user's manual, which was quite difficult to follow.

"professional Grade" ???
So here we come on to snow time again. I used this top level Ariens for a complete season to give it a good try here in the Snowbelt of Northern Wisconsin. I suggest you don't go near this machine. It is heavy, slow and almost impossible to maneuver unless you are a professional wrestler. You better have an iPod because you will be behind this machine for a long, long time every snowfall.

The old Craftsman track machine that this Ariens replaced can still out maneuver and move far more... more

Nice Machine
This thing is awesome, mostly.

Good deal, good lift-gate service, took a few hours to put together. Starts first pull, tracks really grip on inclines, not so hard to steer as long as tracks are in "unlock" position (so that they move independently), hand warmers are awesome.

One problem, or else 5 stars:
The chute control was a hard thing to assemble, but I'm certain I got it done properly and it doesn't work well. The handle is designed to unlock with a tug toward the... more

Snow Blowing At 9200 Feet
Our neighbors told us, and they were right, that we must have a Tracked snow blower. We have a 15 degree slope driveway at 9200 feet in Angel Fire, NM.

At 9200 feet the power of any non-turbo engine in decreased by 13%. Therefore the 342cc engine is needed. A dealer of another brand very honestly advised me to "go with the bigger engine Ariens".

The electric start is great. The machine chewed through 10 inches on the slope with no issues. The ability to unlock the tracks for... more

Excellent Ariens Professional Track St28dlet (28")
The Ariens Pro Track does everything I would expect it to to. It has excellent traction (have gravel drive with slope at the entrance). I set the skid plates high to stay out of the rock. Cuts through 24" with little effort - throws about 75' or more. The only complaint is that the reverse speeds could be a little faster.

Snowbound In Minnesota
We recently moved from Connecticut with a 4-wd farm tractor with a blade attachment. We were confident that we could deal with any snow that Minnesota could throw at us...Were we mistaken!!!

The snow was so high that the tractor tires were completely covered in snow and all the tires did was spin! Thankfully, our neighbor took pity on us and came over with his 12 year old Ariens snow thrower with tracks, and we were sold on the spot!

We got online that afternoon and ordered our own.... more

Great Snowblower
Great machine, powerful motor -- but I found it a little difficult to maneuver with the tracks. Wheels are better when you have to snow blow in small tight spots. Great machine overall.

Amazing, Recomend For Serious Snow Removal
I just ordered my 926042 Ariens Pro 28" with track drive. I had been talking back and fourth with Kriss for weeks and he was really, really helpful. I ordered the thrower on Sunday, it shipped on Monday and i got it on Wednesday. Awesome shipping. The only complaint I have it the driver from R&L was really rude and gave me a hard time when I asked if he could not just leave it at the end of my driveway. He literally left on half on the street and in my drive. I told him that I... more

Brings The Power
This is a real man's machine. It snarled and snapped at me as soon as we opened the shipping package. To quote Tim the Tool Man Taylor: "Argh, Argh, Argh!!!.

Im so glad I bought the commercial model with tracks. I believe this will last many many years.

Can't Wait For Snow
We love the snow blower, and can't wait for the 1st snow fall. Only one small problem- the drift cutter plastic hold down "T" nut was broken on arrival, can we get a replacement?

SBD RESPONDS: Just give the folks at Ariens a call, at 920-756-4688; they will be happy to help.
