Easy Assembly And Started On The First Pull!
The assembly was very easy, it only took about 20 minutes (which was the estimate from a customer service rep I spoke with). Once assembled, I checked the oil and put some gas in the blower. It started on the first pull.
Pros: Durable, Reliable

Not Worth It If You Live In The North Where There Is Real Winter
Everytime there is 10 cm or more the pins are always breaking. I know they are easy to replace but my yard is small and there isn't that much and each time there is a big storm i need to change the da mn things at least twice.

My old man got a craftsman when I was a kid and it's still running great, i'm selling this annoying machine and going that route.
Cons: Heavy, Unreliable, Expensive

Review From Minnesota
Snow here is serious business and this machine is everything it is advertised and more. The 306 cc on the 28 inch I did not find in retail stores in my area. This 2017 model 921048 is an improved high output 15 foot pounds of torque with a bigger engine than before, and starts with one hand pull. It is actually easier to hand pull it than to hook up the cord for the electric starter which any universal extension cord works. It will blow snow all the way a crossed my yard to my neighbor's... more

"No tax or delivery charges made this a done deal. Great prices, perfect delivery. Definitely will buy from SBD again! I love you guys. Only one comment.. I had to go to another web site to determine what Ariens 28in model was the latest and most improved 2017 model. There were 4 different models priced on the internet for Ariens 28in which made it very difficult to compare apples to apples. One recommendation. Offer a discounted hand warmer price if you buy the hand warmers with the blower as a packaged deal. you might sell more snow blowers that way."

It Doesn't Throw Snow, It Launches It!
It was time to upgrade from my 1998 10.5 HP 30" Yardman and decided on this. I couldn't be happier, this thing throws snow over twice as far as my old Yardman did and is easier to maneuver due to the auto Trac. There is only one gripe I have about the design and that is that the chute controls are on the left side and the lever on the left needs to be held down in order to keep the machine going forward. So, you must either stop driving forwards or reach across your body with your right... more

Good First Impression
Received the machine promptly, and the driver was very helpful. I assembled easily. First snow was eleven inches. The machine made story work of it as it should. Power steering was great. The ability to change throw height is a welcome improvement over my trusty old Sears blower. Having gear shift on dash saved a lot of bending. Overall the machine seems to be a big upgrade over my old Sears and Snow Blowers Direct was a good place to buy. Now let's see how it does with 24" of wet snow... more

Love This Snowblower
Bought this after getting sick of another brand's model having constant issues. First, build quality is sooooo much better and as others have stated, assembly takes about 15 - 20 minutes.

Love the auto turn or whatever it is technically called, makes it very easy to use. Traction was good, if adding a cab (as I did) I would get a weight bar or make one yourself.

The only thing I would avoid is the Ariens Deluxe Cab. Compared to the snowblower, it is at the opposite end of the spectrum... more

Product arrived on time and undamaged. Was a snap to put together. I love this machine! It eats snow and craps thunder! If you are looking for a machine that is heavy duty and built like a tank, Ariens is the brand you should be looking at. Very very impressed with it!

So Far, So Good.
I have owned an Ariens Snowblower before, and it was a snow hog. Never giving me a lick of trouble for 10+ years. This one is bigger, and I don't expect any problems. It is definitely engineered well and heavy duty. As soon as we got this, it stopped snowing and hasn't since, and for that reason it works GREAT.

Love It!
Bought the machine as winter approached and finally got to use it this past weekend. It's a beast! Assembly took about 30 mins and as most noted, instructions could be clearer. Started first pull and ran like a champ.

Customer service at snowblowersdirect was awesome, but I wished they shared on their site that paying by e-Check held the order for 4 days. Was not worth the 2% saving. Shipping company customer service was awesome as well.

Was Leary buying this online at first and... more

Rick,
We're sorry that the 4-day hold was an inconvenience. We do have an article on our site regarding Pay By Check. We list that with an e-Check payment, there will be a "5 business day processing-hold on orders placed via e-check," but since you paid by e-Check instead of paper check, you ended up getting it a day earlier.
