Q: I recently bought one of these machines from SBD and I love it. My driveway has a fairly steep hill in one part, and the machine slips a little in this area. I would like to get a set of tire chains - this helped my old machine a lot with slipping. The tires on the new machine are marked 16x6.50-8. What chains should I get?
by Paul Jones from Connecticut on December 15, 2013

A: Paul - the Ariens 926053 snow blower would require the Ariens 72601800 tire chains: 72601800

The first snow fall is always a pleasant sight until the realization that getting out of your drive will be a dreaded task. The long cold winters bring tough work, but with the Ariens Hydro Pro (28") 420cc Two-Stage Snow Blower, will make the work easier and more efficient.

The Hydro-Gear Commercial Hydrostatic Drive System slows down or speeds up in small increments to suit your snow tackling preference. Paired with this commercial grade drive system is the Ariens Polar Force 420cc... more

Assembled And On The Job
I received my new Ariens snowblower, uncrated it, put it together and was in action within 48 hours. We live in evergreen Colorado and have had a 6, 10 and then a little 3 inch snow.

The machine actually performed better on the bigger jobs. I had to make a small adjustment to get down to the pavement. Bring on the rest of winter!

"It was shipped to me quicker than I thought, which was good. Ended up getting a specialist on the phone to help me make a decision on final make and model- very helpful and saved me the hassle of not seeing product. I went to Lowe's and looked at presides and got a fair price and warranty. had to buy warranty at other places."

Great Machine!
Got the 28" Hydro Pro in time to clean up the remnants of the storm that hit the Mid-Atlantic in January. Went through heavy, packed snow and ice easily. Throws wet snow much further than many machines do in the fluffy stuff. Assembly was interesting, as the assembly “pictures” without text would have required a degree of clairvoyance that I don’t have.

The on-line assembly instructions were more helpful, even though both the pictures and the on-line information didn’t quite equate... more

Leaking Ariens
after having an easy winter in which I only used the snow blower twice, I checked on it today and it seems to be leaking oil from underneath the engine, the floor is covered with oil. I will have to see how good this warranty is now, not happy!!

First And, I Expect, Last
I have never before owned or even operated a snow blower. Over the years, I have hand-shoveled multi-foot snowfalls off of driveways, sidewalks, a small patio (for access to food storage), and even roofs. However, unlike myself (!?), my wood & teflonned metal shovel is showing its quarter-century age, and I now live in a home that has more than 3000 sq ft of clearable walks, drive, and parking.

I had studied snow equipment in the past, including Ariens, but without making any purchase.... more

"Because of my circumstances, I paid for expedited handling and for lift gate service upon delivery. Everything proceeded perfectly, including the deliverer's gracious, unexpected help in moving the crate up the steep, slightly cleared driveway so that I could perform assembly in the garage instead of on the street."

Works Well
I have used it only once this year. It worked well and took care of the snow the way I had expected it to do. What took me so long before getting one? Great!

Great Machine
I've used it once in about 3" of snow. The blower worked as intended. I just wish when taking the unit out of the box it had already been assembled ready to go. I had to install lots of items one of which gave me some trouble. The adjustment for the chute to go left or right. I am not an expert and this is my first experience with snow blower or throwerI think it is a great machine and does what it is intended for.

I was on the fence if getting the hydro pro was worth the extra expense. second largest snowfall in NYC history was no problem for this machine. the hydro pro was definitely worth the extra money.

After using this machine at my home the 13 HP craftsman at my office was much more work to handle and felt like a toy compared to the hydro pro 28.

Still To Early
Very impressed with look and functions, (when not in use). Snow has not fallen in Chicago yet, so do not know performance yet, it is only first week of Nov. Hooking shoot to blower controls was a little difficult, yet, easy to figure out with right tools. Seems very easy to run and use on dry run.
