Snowblower On Tracks Successfully Goes Up Steep Driveway
We have a 38 degree cement driveway and the snow blower pulled me up the driveway on 5 inches of hard packed snow. There's a learning curve but so happy we bought it! The directions of assembly could be better but us gals figured it out and we had the cleanest cleared drives on the street and one of the most challenging driveways.

Very Difficult To Turn.
The 24" track model does not have turning assist. Very difficult to turn, must be man handled. No way my wife could use it, not even going to try on snow. Could not be returned or returned for an upgrade because I put gas in it. On Craigs list and getting cheaper by the week. Ignore the quality and value ratings, my complaint is based only on the steering, had to check something.
Cons: Difficult To Use

Hollis,
We are very sorry to hear of the issues you have experienced with your Ariens 24" track snow blower. Unfortunately, this series from Ariens does not offer the Auto-Turn Steering feature. Even with the Auto-Turn Steering feature the track units can still be very tricky to maneuver. We apologize again that the snow blower could not be returned or exchanged since the unit was gassed and it is against federal regulations to allow a return on a gassed unit.

Thank you

Hollis,
We're sorry to hear you're having a difficult time turning the unit. From personal experience, it is quite difficult to turn these on dry pavement. However, once there is some snow on the cold ground, it becomes easier to maneuver. Unfortunately, with the large footprint, there is a lot of resistance which makes it more difficult to turn. We apologize for the inconveniences of this situation. If you have further questions for us, you may contact us using our Support Page
Thank you,
Tyler

Best Purchase I've Ever Made.
Although it was backordered and took a LONG time to get it (order while they have them in stock) - it was well worth the wait.

I ordered in Novemeber and it didn't arrive until the middle of January - BUT - it did manage to arrive the eve of the biggest blizzard in Boston's history and helped clear my driveway throughout the worst season of snow in the history of the city...so there's that.

I have a long (200ft) driveway and a 30-40 degree grade in places...so I researched to find the... more

Neil,
We're sorry for the long wait. Unfortunately back ordered items can take a little longer to get during their peak season. Thankfully you got it in time for the snow storm. Thank you so much for sharing your experience, and the picture is great.

A Great Snow Blower
Great product I've had for a year. If you have a very steep drive, this is the blower. My drive is is a few hundred feet long and at one end very steep, this bower handled it without a single slip. I've had tire blowers with chains and there is just no comparison. Starts right up always, the handle warmers are a God send and I figured it would be a waist of money. It is hard to turn as I expected and other reviews have said but it is perfect for me.
Pros: High Quality, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy, Difficult to turn

Best Snow Blower I Ever Owned
I have this snow blower and loved it from the day I first used it. It never let me stranded . I am 75 years old and had neuro surgery and was informed I can no longer use a snow blower.

Excellent For Powder Snow
I live in the mountains of Colorado and have had this snowblower for one season. First I'll say after having a track machine I'll never go back to wheels. Yes it's a little harder to turn but I never loose traction. I do have a portion of my drive that is very steep and it works GREAT. But, even on the flat most wheel machines with chains still spin a lot. Not this track machine.

Second the power it offers is ample for me no problem there blowing powder snow or even a bit wet is fine but... more

Bought It With A Lot Of Uncertainty But Was Worth It
This machine will rock the snow blowing industry. This thing is awesome. Assembled it in 20 minutes and put gas in it and went right to blowing snow. I have used it almost 10 times in 2 weeks and it runs flawless. We have over 4 ft of snow now and it doesn't even bother this machine. Oh yea, best part I absolutely love the big tag that says Proudly Made In the USA since 1933. Keep up the great product Ariens. Oh yea, this was my first new snow blower I bought and I researched a lot and this is... more

Amazing Machine.
Like many others here, my driveway has some steep portions to it and the wheel machines I had in the past failed when they would get to the hills. This machine however seems to laugh at anything in it's path. The last big snowfall we had was about 16 inches overnight and it went through it like butter. Then I really didn't feel like shoveling the porch again, so I grabbed a couple boards, drove the machine up onto the porch and cleared it. It would take me forever to explain the advantages... more

Bought this blower before the snow started, I live in northern Michigan, we get a lot of snow. Had an old John Deere tracked blower. Loved the track drive. This one is even better. Just ordered the cab and drift cutters.

Nice Looking Machine
After long research, I found that Ariens is the best unit to purchase. I live in an area that does not see much snow fall and using a snow blower in Kentucky may seem unusual for this area. My wife is from Boston and we spoke to several family members on types of units used and they felt the Ariens was the best. I decided to go with the two stage track drive unit. It may never snow here but my goal is to keep the driveways clean off for my neighbors all of whom are retired just like me. ... more

Track Monster
I replaced a old Deere 26TRX with this unit..The unit arrived and was easy to put together, performance is great, blew snow last week with it and did great! Snow was 20+in deep it moved it all and I ran 4th gear, it was light but did awesome, by the road where the town piled it up, it didn't hesitate, fuel economy is great also. Tracks give it great traction! Bottom line this unit out ran my Deere that was larger..

A Decent Little Machine
We have 300 feet of uneven gravel driveway at a grade of up to 30%.

The track drive of this machine takes it from the frozen lake, up a bumpy path, and up and down the driveway without a slip. MUCH better than a model with tires.

It's small and easy to maneuver. The engine, despite its small size, seems to have plenty of power--I just dove into 16" of snow at top speed without a problem.

My only complaint is that the start handle broke the first time I started it, one bolt for... more

Well Built
I wanted a heavy well built machine, I got it. The triangular track drive works great. I finally got to use it a few weeks back, my driveway is 3/4 crushed stone. I used the 1st notch up on the height adjuster so I wouldn't dig into the stones. Its not a steerable unit but you can direct it fairly well with some pressure while the blower is moving. Assembly is quite easy, but I would remove the belt guard while doing the 15min belt break in. Be sure the auger stops when you release the handle.... more

First Snow Of Season 14"
Got our 1st snow at our new mountain property. 14" of heavy, wet snow.
Snowblower performed like a champ, cleared 1/4 acre of parking, as well as the steep hill on the side of the house, and the access road.
Awesome machine, best blower of its size I've ever seen!

Looks Great Assembly Easy :-)
I needed a new snow blower and pick this for reputation and the tracks. I have a about 35 deg. driveway and I'm hope the track work MUCH better then the wheels I had. I haven't had the need to used it yet but the only draw back I see now is turning it...

I know it would add cost but independent drives like a skid loader would solve that. I sure I will be happy with this and hope it last as long as my Troy did, 25 years...

Waiting For Snow
Got the snow blower today - very excited for snow to try it out. Easy to put together, fired up the engine, started with two pulls.

Delivery company was a pain in the butt to work with, and ended up delivering late. I paid $50 for the lift gate service, but the driver rolled the machine off the truck without using the lift!

Thankfully I didn't notice any oil where it shouldn't be. Will have to think twice about ordering any more equipment from this company if delivery is going to be... more
