Awful Snowblower
i owned a 2 stage Ariens snowblower for 10 years the 2nd year it went in for a new style HD clutch under warranty,other then that nothing ever failed every year it started and could always depend on it.

I have always used simplicity lawn tractors they are hands down the best, 9/30/14 i went to simplicity dealer for blades i new my snowblower was getting old so i talked to owner who is a friend and he talked me into a new simplicity snowblower (h1226e) he told me they are as good if not... more

Not What I Hoped For
Handles well , starts great , but if snow is least bit wet it clogs and has to be cleaned out all the time. Big clue to this problem is the tool to unclog is mounted on the front !!!
Pros: Durable, Features
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable

Larry,
Many snow blowers feature the clean-out tool on the front. To prevent clogging, try spraying non-stick spray in the chute.

A Beast!
Shopping for my first snowblower, I wasn't sure where to start, but upon some advice from family and friends, boy am I glad I listened and purchased this Simplicity snowblower.

After the Winter we had last year here in Boston, I was determined to make a purchase, and I'm glad I made the right one! It is a beast, starts right up on the first pull, and cuts through snow like a champ.

The all steel construction, easy turn feature, as well as electric chute make this machine a pleasure to... more
