Ariens EFI Snow Blower: Fuel Efficient and Won't Clog Engine
First EFI Snowblower Provides Smart Engine, Performance
In 2016, Ariens introduced two snow throwers that, for the first time, use Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) technology.
EFI technology may be the future of snow blowers. But is it the right choice for you? Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of an EFI-powered engine.
Won't "Gum Up" Engine
A standard carbureted engine fuel system is constantly exposed to air. Consequently, it oxidizes over time which creates problems when you leave fuel in the engine too long. That’s why we always stress running out your fuel in the offseason.
An EFI engine, however, has a fuel valve to block oxygen access so that you won’t gum up the engine or build residue. That means you will avoid a lot of the damage, repairs, and replacement that occurs in a standard carbureted engine. This is a virtually maintenance-free machine.
The EFI engine allows for a consistent performance so you don’t struggle with snow. This snow blower won’t idle or stall, and it gives you a throwing distance close to 50 feet. On average, EFI-powered machines launch 73 tons of snow per hour; that's 15,000 shovels full of snow. Whether you are dealing with light and fluffy snow, or a wet and heavy mess, an EFI snowblower can get the job done.
Once you start throwing snow, you don’t want to stop to refuel. With this engine, you probably won’t have to. The EFI Series maximizes fuel consumption so that every drop counts. That means you will get more snowfalls per gallon. To start the engine just pull the cord or use the electric start. You don’t have to worry about 5 steps of priming and pumping.
In our technology-transformed world, so many of our devices have become “smart.” This engine essentially has a brain. It measures air, engine temperature, altitude, and engine speed, then makes adjustments for optimal performance. Because it’s electronic, these changes happen in real-time. It will quickly and continuously monitor these variables as snow loads, demands, and conditions change.
