Great Blower If You Can Figure Out How To Assemble It With Incor
I have already used the blower and it does great. It started right up and it was throwing wet snow from my gravel driveway this morning with no problems whatsoever.

Here's thing....and to me this is a big deal and it needs fixing the assembly instructions included with this model number 921050 do not match. The instructions are taped to the chute and include about 5 model numbers from previous builds up to 921049, but it does not go up to 921050. That's a real problem because the chute... more

Waiting For Snow...
Assembly video was not very detailed causing the set up to be more difficult than it needed to be. Instructions should refer to the video - they do not. Control for discharge shoot required cable adjustment and the adjustment was very sensitive requiring several iterations to get it right.

Generally, I'd recommend the mount of this lever to be re-engineered. The unit did not rest flat in front and the only video on the website for this adjustment is for a different model so I have yet to... more

Awesome Machine!
This unit has lots of power and doesn't slow down. The auto turn is definitely under rated, makes it so easy to handle. Have had lots of neighbors looking and asking what it is. We've had 50+ inches so far and glad I made the purchase.

SB Direct was great to work with, but the shipping was horrible. Was suppose to get a phone call and never did. I had to call the carrier and get transferred. They had the package but didn't know when they could bring it out. I ended up getting it myself and... more

Will Even Clear Slush
I have the previous version but they appear to be identical. The added power without making the path wider seems to give it the ability to clear anything that I aim it at including the slushy piles which the state plow leaves in front of the driveway.

The heated handles are a nice extra and is very helpful for my once frost bitten fingers. Although it has electric start I have not had to use it for other than testing. In 10F temperatures it starts with no argument. Note that I always run the... more

Best Snow Blower
This is the best snow blower I've ever used. It was super easy to put together. I don know what other reviewers had issues with assembling the machine. You just have to put the shoot on and make a few cable connections. I use Tru fuel for this machine. I push the primer ONCE and pull the starter a half pull and it stars up every time. The power steering works great. The machine will go all over the place if your going to fast for the conditions. As soon as you slow down, the power... more

Not too difficult to assemble you can use youtube for help. just waiting for snow probably next season, then I can rate performance. will be comparing it to my troybilt 8hp 26 in 2 stage snowthrower ...this review to be continued after a few uses. I hope we get loads of snow, waiting patiently... one star performance cause I have to give it one to submit on performance..to be continued....

Wow
I received this blower within 7 days of order to a remote area of northern Maine. I am impressed with all the upgrades and in particular the power. It replaces my Ariens 824 which I will be working on restoring this winter (824) is 30 years old. Currently there are no instructions specific to this model so assembly offered a couple challenges. Like the heated handles!
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet
Cons: Bad Instructions

I Will Be Buying From These People Again.
Ordering was simple, delivery was spot on. With the tailgate service the blower was delivered inside my shop and had help opening crate to inspect for damage.

The way my blower was crated was epic. Assembly was a cake walk. If you have trouble assembling this you might consider turning in your pliers and adjustable wrench set.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: none

Ariens To Me Makes The Best Product!
I finally retired my 1973 Toro and was looking for a replacement. I believe Ariens has a way better snowblower than the new Toro's. Even though I had great success with my old Toro, this new Ariens is alot easier to handle and blow's snow alot farther!

I'm a small engine mechanic also and like the way this machine is made and designed! I recommend my Dad buy a Ariens a few years back and he loves his and has had no issues with it, nice machine!

Great Snowblower
Well, I've had this snowblower for 4 winters, it's been great until now, I went to use it and found a mice nest, emptied that out, saw no damage, but the snowblower will start but won't stay on, I never drained the gas from it in 4 years, I've had a friend come over 3 times now to try and fix this problem, cleaned the bowl, emptied the old gas, oil change with new oil, added mechanic in a bottle, I thought that would clean the carb out, at least it starts and will stay on while priming it, if... more

This Machine Is A Beast
First, I had an excellent experience with the freight company, and their delivery service. Second, there was no shipping damage. It arrived in perfect condition. The snowblower had oil in it already, put some gas in, and it fired right up using the pull start.

This machine is a beast. It moved around fine, and was comfortable to move and turn despite its size and weight. No snow in NJ yet, but this should go through snow much better than my old 5.5 hp snowblower.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable

"I had a great experience with snowblower direct. The snowblower arrived on time, the freight company pallet jacked the snowblower up my 70 ft driveway without being asked to do that. The driver was extremely pleasant and helpful. He even took away the wooden pallet. I really can't complain about anything, it was a great experience all the way around."
