      • It blows... snow!
      • November 29, 2010

      Had an older 1 cycle snow blower with the rubber auger. It decided to destroy itself today while I was trying to clear my driveway. It was made of plastic and rubber with a metal handle. I told myself that I needed a reliable snow blower that will last for a long time. Decided on the Ariens 24" model. Got really good reviews and seemed like a good choice. Went in to Home Depot. As usual, the salesmen was very knowledgeable and listened to my needs. I decided on spending a little more money for a few reasons. It was really only 300 more or so, which is not bad for something I should have for years and years Pros 1. This thing is a beast. It is solid metal and does not appear to have a cheap part on it. Makes is heavier but there is no cheaply made feeling whatsoever with this bad boy 2. Has 2 stages, so not only does it suck, it blows! (That is a good thing). Gives you more distance, I think it says 40 ft, which is really cool. I was using this in a heavy wind today so I dont think I got that much. But it definitely was more than powerful to get snow in the spot you want! 3. It is power driven, no more pushing a snow blower through the deep snow storms or wet snow. Which usually ended up being more work than just shoveling the walk in the first place! This thing walks itself! Has pins in the tires to remove this feature and add more control for tighter turns. 4. Has multiple speeds which I didn’t really think would be all that cool. But I used it today in 8 inches of snow. Not a huge storm but decent. Half of my driveway had another 4-6 inches of snow drift. On the first half I could go much faster and the quicker speed was nice. On the deeper side I wanted to slow down just a little to ensure it got everything on the first pass. Really nice feature. Even has 2 reverse speeds which I could see some people using cause it is kind of heavy to pull backwards on hills or for users that do not have the strength to do so. 5. The handle to rotate the chute was right up top near my hands. I didn’t realize how much of a pain it was to bend down by the engine to turn the chute. It also is described as a "Quick Turn" chute. After using it, wow that is a nice feature. It basically turns it 3 times faster for each rotation (Rough estimate) which is great 6. No more mixing oil!!!! How many times have you gone out with your old blower and had to drive over the powder snow to go mix some gas... No more, never again. This was a nice plus for me. Still have to keep the oil filled, but that is easy. 7. Handles packed down and deeper snow 10x better than my old blower. I had to drive over part of my driveway to go get this thing. My old blower would have went over the top of it. This thing went under the packed snow and you would never know i drove over it. Even took out ice from 3 storms ago. 8. It has a headlamp. I am putting this under Pros because it just sounds cool to have a light on your snow blower! 9. Free 3 year waranty I have only used it once so I am sure i will come up with more benefits. But for now, that is pretty good! Observations I wanted to note (Not really cons) 1. It is pretty heavy. Not a portable snow blower or a 1 man load it in the back of your truck type blower. I actually like this because it was heavy enough to get ice or anything off the driveway. Just a thought, not a con really. 2. You can’t make super tight corners at first. I think you can unlock the pins in the wheel to have more control but then you have to push the blower. So this is kind of cool actually. The salesman explained it to me that way. It is definitely larger than my old blower, so I think the more I use it the more I will get used to it. 3. My old blower had the rubber auger that really wiped the driveway clean. This uses more of a metal scraper that goes along the driveway. I would say it doesn’t get as close as the older blower, but it handled packed down snow and ice 10x better. Still does a great job, but just a heads up it doesn’t work exactly the same as the smaller blowers with rubber augers. 4. Space for storage. Just takes up a little more room is all. No bigge, but worth mentioning. Hope my review helps! Got a little long but I would rather read a review like this when I am dropping this kind of money than the “Works great” review. Is it sad I am now at work and hoping another storm is coming soon so I can use my new toy again? :)
