Nice Unit, Launches Snow!
Purchased my 24" EFI SHO back on January 11 2017. After 2 smaller storms in CT last year I became tired of shoveling. I was able to put mine to use several times last year with slush, then fluffy and then heavy wet snow. Each time the blower just kept launching the matter farther. I actually had to back off the throttle from full to about 75% to stop throwing the snow across my lawn and into my neighbors yard...oops! Anytime I thought it would bog down you could hear it in essence... more

Fails To Run On Day One
I ordered my unit on a Friday, and on Monday I called to schedule a delivery for Tuesday. It was delivered promptly within 30 minutes on the front end of the delivery window that I was provided.

Everything went together nicely by following the included instructions. I checked all of the fluids and the tire pressure, added premium gas, fully charged the battery, and went to start it for the first time. That's when things went poorly. The engine runs very hard as soon as you turn it on,... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, No replacement parts available

This Machine Rocks!
Bought Ariens 921053 from Snow Blowers Direct in November 2016 for use at my mountain home at 9300 ft elevation in Colorado. My property has a combination of concrete and lightly sloping gravel surfaces to clear. After several weeks of research, I chose this model due to high power on a machine that was sized small enough to be highly maneuverable, and robust enough to withstand frequent usage. I selected the new EFI option due to my remoteness from a servicing dealer and that carburetors... more

No Go
I too like the other reviewer have experienced the exact same problem. Engine runs hard and revs up and down and backfires. My issue is my local dealer will not work on these "new EFI" models.

I am hoping for some resolution as I too have a 1700 blower sitting in my garage while I was shoveling all day. As things progress hopefully for the better I will update.

Dave,
We're sorry to hear you're having issues with your machine revving up and down and backfiring. This is not typical for these machines. Therefore, the unit should get in to a servicing dealer for further inspection, diagnosis, and repair. To locate dealers in your area, please use our Dealer Locator page. If you need further assistance in locating a dealer that is able to work on the EFI engines, please contact us through our Contact Us Page. We're happy to help! Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Thank you,
Tyler

New Snow Blower Technology With Issues
I purchased this snow blower from Snow Blowers At Jacks back in September. It only took about 10 days to arrive after making the delivery date with the delivery company. The delivery driver was courteous and helpful.

After unpacking the snow blower and setting it up, I discovered some quality control issues. The first issue was the shoot deflector. It did not work. I had to adjust the adjustment screw to get it to move up and down. After that I had to spray it with lithium grease... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Quiet

Great Snow Blower, Doing Well So Far
I've seen the negative reviews and noticed they all come from units that were shipped in a box and left up to the individuals to set up and prep. People underestimate the amount of work that is done to prepare power equipment for sale. I sell tractors and other things for a living and we spend a lot of time setting up and tweaking units before selling. Cars are the same way, it is unrealistic to think that a machine will just pop together and function perfectly without this process. So consider... more

Excellent For The Northeast!
I bought this machine from a local dealer here in NY. They assembled (for free) and delivered it to my house and showed me how to use it. My machine runs flawlessly! I think some of these issues in the reviews are people not assembling the machine properly themselves because of shoddy instructions or using the wrong fuel.

My machine doesn't squeak, backfire, leak anything, ect... I would advise having it professionally assembled, if possible, by a local dealer so you get a perfectly working... more

Awesome!
Ordered the Ariens 921053 (24" Platinum EFI) from Snow Blowers Direct on a Friday evening, was notified Monday morning that it shipped and I had it by Thursday. Spending this kind of money online was a tad never racking, but the unit arrived in perfect condition and was boxed very well on a wood pallet.

The tracking system from the freight company was very informative (every step of the way) and their customer service was great on scheduling. I did pay the $50 lift-gate fee but feel... more

""Purchased an Ariens 24" Platinum EFI snowblower on a Friday evening, Snow Blowers Direct shipped it Monday morning and I had it on Thursday afternoon (from IL to NJ). The freight company (which was great) provided tracking info every step of the way. I did elect to pay the $50 lift gate fee, which was worth it in my opinion. The driver even hauled it from the street and brought it up my driveway into the garage. I was a little nervous paying this kind of money online, but the unit arrived in perfect condition. Last, I emailed SBD customer service to update a phone number on my contact information and they got back to me in a hour." Thanks!"
