Snow Blowers Direct Recommended

When you hear the name Ariens your mind goes right to snow blowers. This Wisconsin legend is back for 2017-2018. The 921051 has a powerful Ariens AX414cc engine that can take on the nastiest winter storms.

Since the unit is a Platinum Series, you get everything your heart desires.
The Ariens 921051 has electric start and a recoil back up feature making starting a breeze.

This snow blower is backed with a heavy-duty Disc-O-Matic drive system and a reinforced large cast iron gear case. ... more

Great Machine With Bad Instructions.
The snow blower arrived the week after Christmas. It was delivered in a large box on a palette. I paid for the lift gate service and the driver wheeled the box from the truck into my garage. I don't know if that is part of the service, but it was greatly appreciated since the box is too large and heavy to move.

Some assembly is required to attach the chute, skid plates, and cable controls. The assembly instructions were extremely frustrating since they consist solely of pictures with no... more

Good Snow Blower
only used the snow blower a couple of times but has worked great so far. my only 2 complaints I have are:

1 - Hand control warmer button gets bumped and turns off. it should have a covered switch or relocate the switch so it doesn't turn off. 2 - The snow chute gets stuck in the far left or far right position. need to use both hands to change the direction of the shooting snow.

One hand to work the controls & one hand to hit the deflector to get it to move. My only other complaints... more

Brand Rep
Joel,
Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear that you're having difficulty with the hand warmer control shutting off when you don't want it to. We will certainly pass this on to our design team. As for the discharge chute getting stuck, this is not a common occurrence. We would recommend getting the unit to an authorized Ariens dealer. For assistance in locating one near you, here is a link to our Dealer Locator. They will be able to inspect, diagnose, and resolve your issue with this. If you end up having further questions for us here at the Ariens Company, feel free to use our Contact Us page. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Thank you,
Tyler

Itís A Beast Of A Machine!
If you need a real snow throwing machine, this is the one. Delivery was right to my door, assembly was a snap, and itís started on the first pull. Itís only snowed a few times since weíve received this machine, but it is a real beast. Iíve owned my 8524 for 10 years and it works flawless as well to this day! Itís a little more expensive than comparable models, but itís worth every penny.

Cons: Expensive

Quality Machine & Great Customer Service Sbd
I'm looking forward to snow this year so I can use my Ariens Platinum 30 SHO. I did my homework and visited local small engine repair business's and their opinion was unanimous Ariens over the other brand that I considered. The assembly directions could have been more descriptive, but if you just look at them and look ahead it is pretty easy to figure out how it goes together. Two pulls of the starter cord and the engine fired up and ran very smooth.
Pros: High Quality, Features, Easy To Use, Price

You Will Love It!
We ordered this machine on a Tuesday and it was delivered to our driveway three days later! Uncrated it, was delighted to see all parts right there on the machine (not in a separate bag!) ready for setting up. Diagram (no narrative) instructions are not great, but I could do steps one and two and my techy son did the last three.

Took about an hour. The next day, ten inches of snow fell and I fired up the machine. It is easy to handle,blows snow like crazy and what's not to like? But... more

Best Snow Blower I Ever Had.
This snow blower has lived up to its name. Haven't had very much snow far, but for what snow we have had, it started on the first pull and went right through. Even plowed right through what the city snow plow stacked on my driveway. Have had no problems.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Durable, Easy To Use

Great First Impression
I've had this about a week. It arrived in a crated box. There was minor damage to the chute angle cable (cracked sheath) but otherwise good. Setup was easy. It started right up although I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Waiting for more snow!

I have Ariens self propelled and zero turn mowers and have always been impressed with their quality.

Serious Machine
I ordered this 30" machine, with the largest engine possible, in December 2016 following two significant snow events in northwest Wyoming -- we had 24" followed shortly after by another 12". The well below-zero temperatures combined with 50-60 mph winds created enormous 4-6 ft drifts in places that required a 40000-lb front-end loader to clear.

This created huge mounds on the sides that acted like snow fences whenever the wind blew, which filled in the roadway again with... more

Platinum 30" Sho
It arrived in a very secure box on a skid. The driver brought it up driveway right into garage for me. He helped me open box and check for damage which there was none. Assembly went well took about 4 hours. I worked slow making sure everything was covered. There are locations I applied lubrication that are not in instructions.

The surface where the chute turns on lubricate, and the gears under the cover that turn the chute lubricated. Now how does it work. The auto-turn steering and hand... more

Beast Of An Engine
About three weeks ago I purchased a competitors brand 3-stage snow thrower, which after I received it, set it up and filled it, had a defected engine. Frustrated, I called PED and they expedited a pickup and refunded me accordingly.

During the return process I ordered Ariens Platinum 30 SHO (30") 414cc Two-Stage Snow Blower. First off the shipping carrier was on time and even called an hour before estimated arrival. The Box was perfect and the whoever though of the packaging of this... more
