Bought 102015...no Use Till Nyc 2nd Largest Snowstorm Ever
So 10/2015, I bought the ARIENS for the engine CC size for a 24inch unit and ARIENS reputation.

Twiddling my fingers and thumbs for the past 3 months till 01232016 when NYC got hit by the 2nd largest snowstorm ever.

I live in Queens and got over 28 inches with drifts in my driveway of over 3-4 feet high. I cleared my 80 foot driveway, my walkways and my rear yard in about 8 hours.

Wow 8 hours you say that is too long. But my driveway does not allow me to pile snow on the sides. I have... more

Almost Really Good
Purchased the snow blower in Fall of 2015. I only needed it twice that winter and it performed well. I was very happy.
The first major snow of 2016 was about a week ago. Within a few minutes of clearing the driveway, I lost control of the speed.

I was left with only "high speed forward" and the shifter became unresponsive. This was a Friday evening and tech support was unavailable. It was late at night and I was able to manage to complete the clearing job in high speed... more

What Is Going On With The Chute???
My wife bought me this monster for my retirement gift before the winter of 2014-15. I live in Massachusetts and we were buried. Unfortunately, the control chute for the snow broke down and I had to hold with one hand while trying to control blower with the other. The store I bought it from had to pick up and repair it.

Received it back and during the next big storm the same thing happened halfway through my efforts to blow driveway. With the non-stop forecast of more storms I just lived with... more

It Is May And Ready For Snow
Gave this to my brother who will retire in a couple months. Overall a pretty impressive unit. Don't look too hard at the directions as they are broken out into such small detail as it it is hard to figure out what/where they are describing. It is not difficult to figure out the assembly process as it is practically assembled already.

One word of caution...my brother tightened down the bolts on the handles that are folded down for shipment and one of the saddle washers... more

Torque
I m up at 8000', so standard engines are sadly powered w power loss of 4% per 1000' above sea level. This gorilla eats everything and launches it above trees and low house/garage roofs. PERFECT for heavy spring "mud"
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Durable, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Abs None

Love At First Sight
I went with the Platinum 24 SHO and really glad I did. Ordered from Snow Blowers Direct on a Monday got here on Friday. Very timely as we got about 8 inches of snow the following week. Did my driveway as a test run and then helped the neighbors do theirs all on one tank of gas. As expected, it was like bringing a gun to a knife fight, and made short work of the job. But, I like knowing I can take on 2+ ft of snow in my driveway the next time it comes. This blower is everything they say it is... more

Ok
Although I have only used this blower once when we had over two foot of snow and was heavy and wet blower worked well the only thing is I wish that you could adjust the handle bars a little lower.
Pros: High Quality, Features, Reliable, Price

Made In Usa Family Owned
Just bought this snow blower and at this time with no snow yet have not used it. We chose this snow blower because of brand name, is built in USA and is a family owned company. One of the features that we like is how easy it is to change the snow discharge chutes direction. One thing that I would have liked to have had on this blower is a hour meter. Because it did not have one, I installed an after market one on this blower.
Pros: High Quality, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Price

Bought on clearance end of season. So far, seems like a robust machine. Assembly was pretty straightforward and it is ready to go for next winter.

This Thing Is A Tank!!
Only had to use it a couple of times as I bought it at the end of February, but it laughs at snow!! Was able to clear both mine and my elderly neighbors driveways in less than 30 minutes and the pathway between the two too!

Exceptionally well built and fires up on the 2nd pull each time (have yet to try the electric start.
