Harsh winter storms, icy patches on your steep drive and artic temperatures are no match for the Ariens Platinum Track 28 SHO (28") 369cc Two-Stage Snow Blower.

You will be skating across your drive with the maneuverability and improved traction that the 5.5” Wide Directional Snow Track and Auto-Turn Steering Technology provides. With a powerful 369cc Ariens engine and 120-Volt electric start, clearing snow falls up to 16” deep couldn’t be easier.

Tank
I bought this snow blower last year after looking at a lot of snow blowers. It came on a tractor trailer and beware it is curb delivery. The driver did help get it up my 150 foot driveway. A buddy and I set it up in about 30 minutes. It is very heavy duty and easy to use.

It has a lot of good features and the controls are right at your finger tips. We had several snows last year and this machine ate through the snow like a tank. I cleared 2 foot snow drifts with ease. My driveway is... more
Pros: High Quality, Features, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again

Come On, Snow, Revised--won't Run Downhill
So the snow came, and the Ariens 28 Plat Track throws well. Only problem is that it shuts off going down slopes. Just fine on uphills or flats, okay on short descents, but anything over 50 feet, and the engine lopes like it's running out of gas, and then it quits. Because it will start if primed but die immediately, and if I drag it around so it faces uphill, it will start and run just fine, there must be an issue with the fuel supply when nose down.

Super frustrating, especially since I... more

Sharon,
We apologize that you are experiencing difficulty with your machine and appreciate the honest feedback. We certainly don't want someone that put their trust in an Ariens product to regret their decision.
Although we don't expect that our machines will not function as they should we do have an extensive dealer network in place to be our eyes and ears in the field to cover these situations.
We would encourage you to contact your local Ariens authorized dealership for assistance. Your closest dealership can be found by logging on to Ariens.com and selecting the "Where to buy" icon.

Thank you,
Ariens Company

Solid Machine
Used in 30" of compacted snow in UT mountains. Plenty of power, good throwing distance. The deep compacted snow above the auger obviously did not feed in readily. That however is not the fault of the machine, it is simply not big enough for the job. 30" of loose snow are absolutely no issue.

The tracks work well on steep inclined gravel driveway. All around a good machine. The only nit-picking complaint is that the sticker for the throttle ring is already peeling off the... more

Solid Machine
We purchased the Platinum Track 28 SHO new in November 2016 and have had occasion to use it twice. Setup was fairly straightforward although it did take some use and further tweaking to seat all the cables and adjust spring tensions just right. I would budget about an hour for a complete setup and adjustment. Consult the yearly maintenance section for some additional adjustment not covered in the initial setup instructions.

But once its dialed in this thing can chew through the snow and... more

Come On, Snow!
Haven't had a chance to see my new snow thrower in action, but the quality seems excellent, and set up out of the box was smooth. Looking forward to tackling the white stuff.
Pros: Durable, Fast, High Quality

As Good, At Times Better Than Honda 928
The bigger barrel and faster moving second stage moves the sierra concrete much better. Most of the time I could not get through the driveway built-up from the street clearing fellow, now I can. Without problems.

difficult to move without engine on. Not a problem for me. Mine has a parking place inside the garage.

No cons!!!
Pros: High Quality, Features, Price, Fast

Come On Snow: Design Flaw, Ariens Proposes A Fix
Okay, so you may have seen the review about my Ariens Plat Track 28 quitting on downhill slopes. I dragged it to a service center, where they determined that the outlet on the fuel tank is in the back bottom corner, so that if there is a half tank or less of gas and the machine is tilted nose down, the gas no longer reaches the outlet and it dies.

Seems like a major design flaw for a model that's supposed to be good for slopes. The service center contacted Ariens, who provided a stock... more

Ariens Snowblower Review
The Ariens 28 inch Platinum SHO snowblower came shipped in heavy duty packaging. Instructions to complete setup were adequate. The snowblower arrived with slight paint damage to the auger housing. Had to buy touch up paint to fix it. Have not had a chance to use it yet. It looks good.
Pros: Durable, Features, Price, High Quality
Cons: Heavy
