  3 Questions
Q: Is it regular gas or mix
by Orlando Vela from Illinois on November 20, 2015

A: Orlando - all of the gas-powered snow blowers we sell have 4-cycle engines. Gas goes in the fuel tank and oil goes in the crankcase - same as in your car. No mixing. You would use regular grade 87 octane gas with no more than a 10% ethanol content.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Is the Ariens self propelled?
Frank

by Frank from Pennsylvania on October 14, 2014

A: Frank - Ariens single stage snow blowers are not self-propelled. These style units have what's known as an "auger assisted drive system". The auger paddles are in constant contact with the pavement, and help pull the snow blower forward when they are engaged.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Does this snow blower come with the starter cable or does this need to be purchased separately?
by Audrey from New Jersey on September 07, 2014

A: Audrey - Ariens snow blowers do not include the power cord for the electric start. This would need to be purchased separately unless you already have one that you can use.

Small Snowblower Gets The Job Done!
We bought this snow blower for its compact size and electric start. There is a lidded compartment for all the self-servicing it needs, and there are start up instructions with pictures. It has easily handled the snow we have had so far, including the city plow deposits at the end of the driveway, with a few back and forth swipes. It zips along as if self-propelled on smooth surfaces, may take a little pushing on bumpy ice ruts, etc. I like the simple sturdy chute handle, as there is no need... more

Customer Service Leaves Much To Be Desired
First let me say that Snowblowers Direct is awesome. Shipped and received in two days on the east coast. Couldn't ask for more. With that said, I unpacked the machine and everything looked good. I did the minimal assembly that is required and noticed that the remote chute handle was extremely difficult to use( lots of resistance to the point it felt like the handle would break). obviously this couldn't be right. I started to loosen the three screws that hold the chute on and the resistance... more

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Martin,
We're sorry to hear of your frustrating experience. This is certainly not a common issue with these machines. That being said, it is difficult to verify or diagnose an issue without seeing the machine in person. We rely on our dealers to be our eyes, ears, and hands. They are able to inspect, diagnose, and repair any issues with our machines. Part of the reason for not simply sending the part is to ensure that there is not more than one issue that is causing your chute rotation resistance. Also, this ensures that the part is professionally installed to prevent any future issues. We certainly apologize for the inconveniences of this situation with your new snow blower. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this situation. If you do have further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us using our Support Site.

Thank you,
Tyler

Love My Ariens!
Machine works great! I'm starting my 3rd snow season in Central Ohio with it. Plenty of power, starts quickly even with pull start. I really only use the electric cord to start it the first time or two of the season. Deepest snow I've had was 10". It loads up the motor and you can hear it is working, but the deeper the snow, the better it throws!

I run fresh Sunoco 93 octane treated with StarTron enzyme fuel treatment which gets rid of the 10% ethanol garbage that is in all pump gas... more

Good Features, Needs Better Qc
Received two days after ordering. You have to install a few of the parts, the chute and auger control on the handlebar. When installing the control lever one of the four bolts broke and I used little torque. It is not as simple to fix as using a different bolt. It is holding with three but it should not have broke with the small amount of torque used. Like another reviewer, my machine also seems to have flat spots on the tires.

I'm sure it will perform fine when we get snow, and the... more

Nice Unit
Used this snow blower for the first time in 4" of wet snow. Unit threw the snow a good 20'. Unit feels very sturdy, I like that it appears to be more easily serviceable than some of the others. Don't need to remove the shroud to gain access to spark plug.

Ordering from PED was quick and easy. Unit was delivered to my back door upon my request undamaged by Fed Ex. There were a few simple parts to assemble. Snow chute, chute control and add oil. Looking forward to the next snow and... more

Follow Up On Performance
I wanted to follow up my review after a real test. We just received the 5th largest snowstorm in Chicago area history---19". My new Ariens saved my back (and back side) by performing absolutely perfect.

It starts on the first pull every time and runs like a finely tuned machine. It muscled through the heavy, wet snow with no problem and never stalled once as my previous Toro did all the time.

I am so overwhelmingly impressed! This machine gets an A+ and was the best decision I... more

We just finished up cleaning up after the fifth largest snow fall in Chicago. 18 inches with drifts. Yes we cleaned three times, but it never quit and really moved the snow.

I even went down my block clearing the walks for the neighbors who had not touched them. Great piece of equipment thanks Snow blower direct.

I do like the snow blower and it operates very well. When we got it out of the box delivered by FedEx was left in our driveway by our front steps, which is fine except they did not ring our doorbell to let us know it was there.

Upon opening the box we found the orange covering has a crack in it. Because we were expecting snow we kept it. But it operates so good. Very easy for myself. a senior to operate.

I am very satisfied with it. Very easy to push along our 85 ft driveway and across... more

Unhappy
We used the blower 3 times with no problems BUT THE 4th time the engine stopped working which resulted in oil all over the garage floor!!!!!!! It is now being repaired and hopefully the warranty will cover all repairs since we only had it for a month. If this is taken care of in a professional manner I'd like to edit this rating.

Terrific Machine From Great Seller
I had a Toro for about four years that always ran rough and had trouble re-starting after stalling in heavy snows. I finally decided to make a change and found snowblowersdirect.com.

I found this to be a great site, full of helpful recommendations and information. I ordered the Ariens SS21EC and it literally arrived the next day.

After some quick and easy assembly I got to try the unit right out on about 4" of new snow. It started instantly and outperformed my old Toro very... more

First I have to say is I haven't put it to the test yet. Its still fall and no snow. First impression is this is definitely a midsize machine. It will take two people to lift safely on to your truck bed. Assembly was simple. Install chute with self tapping screws, but make sure cable is routed on top of folding handle, otherwise it will bind when folded for storage.

Follow starting instructions and it will fire on the first pull as it did with me. It comes with oil but make sure it's full... more
