The Snowblower From Hell
Only one snow since I took delivery. Six inches of powder, which it ate up like it wasn't there. Just for fun I ran it into a 2-foot pile of compacted, thawed-and-refrozen snow where my neighbor had thrown the snow from his driveway after each of the last 3 snows. The Ariens chewed it up in seconds and spit it into his backyard.

I love the controls that allow me to instantly redirect the snow stream without having to crank a handle. The Auto Turn makes it a breeze to maneuver. (You do... more

"I ordered the machine with standard shipping on a Wednesday afternoon and it was here at the Denver motor freight terminal Thursday night. One can only imagine how fast expedited shipping might be."

Can Clean Up Anything
I got this snowblower after a 38" snowstorm that my very old 724 couldn't quite handle. It arrived within two working days from the time I ordered it, I assembled it and cleaned up all the 4 day old snow including the plow piles without any problems. I even was able to go around my house and clean the patio and the yard so the dog had a place to run. The tracks are great - they did no damage to the yard and I did not get stuck once, if it is losing traction all you do is lock the hubs... more

Hydrostatic Transmission Fails
I bought one of these in Novemeber 2012, (from somewhere other than SnowBlowers Direct) and I first needed to use it on Dec 20, 2012. It made all of a couple of passes on my driveway when the hydrostatic transmission failed. The failure was preceded with a grinding sound, and now that I recall, a faint odor similar to something overheating. The auger control cable was left jammed in place. What gives, Ariens? Just bad luck, or a design flaw?

A Real Tank, But Some Issues
Have used this on multiple heavy Maine snowstorms already this year - seemed to have timed my purchase just right. I am very impressed with the ease of starting, heavy construction, ability to throw snow a long way, and unstoppable traction. As mentioned in the store review, this critter is difficult to turn. Had hopes that the Auto-Turn feature would be helpful. Perhaps it is, but the machine is heavy duty and well built. It is simply a tank, and when turning it there is no hint of an... more
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Amazing Traction

Still Not Sure, Maybe Should Have Gotten The Honda
Added to fleet, have two '08 Ariens track drive models, love them both other than the garbage chute controls. I opened the box of the new Hydro Pro Track 28, saw the same chute controls, and said out loud to myself, "you should have gotten the Honda."

The headlight shines up, in your face. Obviously there is no product testing in the dark. I actually put a piece of duct tape over the top of the headlight as a temporary fix. Before doing that, it was difficult to use in the dark,... more

Powerfull Snowblower
This is my second year with this snowblower. The auto turn feature is really nice. It has excellent traction and throws wet heavy snow long distances. The snowblower is large and not as heavy as you might think but it works very well in any snow conditions. It has plenty of power and is easy to start, it requires a little choke to get it started even when its warm.

The only time I have used the electric start is to test it to make sure it worked. It starts on the 2nd pull every time ( Full... more

Great Unit
We finally had our first significant snowfall 5-6 inches so got to give the unit a good workout. Really cleaned house on the sidewalks and large driveway. So far am happy with it excepting for one item that's not covered in the manual, and that's the auto turning.

Finally got frustrated enough to call the factory and the gentlemen guided me through the process. Tried the method and seemed to work once, but couldn't really tell on the other times trying as it was so slick under foot that it... more
