Very Nice Machine
Used it in two snow falls in Michigan so far. First one about 12 inches of medium weight snow. Did 10 driveways and the sidewalks in our neighborhood. I was just getting used to the operating controls but was impressed by the power.

Second snow fall was more ice but about six inches of snow. Same 10 driveways and sidewalks. Really handled the ice well. The machine is more expensive, but worth it. Fast, strong, powerful and easy to control. Starts easy too.
Pros: Features, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

Good Snow Blower
only used the snow blower a couple of times but has worked great so far. my only 2 complaints I have are:

1 - Hand control warmer button gets bumped and turns off. it should have a covered switch or relocate the switch so it doesn't turn off. 2 - The snow chute gets stuck in the far left or far right position. need to use both hands to change the direction of the shooting snow.

One hand to work the controls & one hand to hit the deflector to get it to move. My only other complaints... more

Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear that you're having difficulty with the hand warmer control shutting off when you don't want it to. We will certainly pass this on to our design team.

Serious Machine
I ordered this 30" machine, with the largest engine possible, in December 2016 following two significant snow events in northwest Wyoming -- we had 24" followed shortly after by another 12". The well below-zero temperatures combined with 50-60 mph winds created enormous 4-6 ft drifts in places that required a 40000-lb front-end loader to clear.

This created huge mounds on the sides that acted like snow fences whenever the wind blew, which filled in the roadway again with... more

Ariens Platinum 30 Sho, 414cc Snow Blower
The only disclaimer is that I haven't been able to use this yet!! (Insurance that it doesn't snow...)

Great quality construction, easy enough to put together, but I know what others mean by the instructions aren't the best. It started first pull, even though it has electric start. The auto turn feature is awesome - you just need to let it work for you.

Pricing and delivery by PED was excellent.

"Looking forward" to the snow.
Pros: High Quality, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Durable
Cons: Bad Instructions, Expensive

I Don't Know.
I can't really tell anything yet, other than it starts. We haven't over a 1" or2" so far. Now if it could melt ice, we have plenty of that. I will review again once we get some snow lol.

Platinum 30" Sho
It arrived in a very secure box on a skid. The driver brought it up driveway right into garage for me. He helped me open box and check for damage which there was none. Assembly went well took about 4 hours. I worked slow making sure everything was covered. There are locations I applied lubrication that are not in instructions.

The surface where the chute turns on lubricate, and the gears under the cover that turn the chute lubricated. Now how does it work. The auto-turn steering and hand... more

Beast Of An Engine
About three weeks ago I purchased a competitors brand 3-stage snow thrower, which after I received it, set it up and filled it, had a defected engine. Frustrated, I called PED and they expedited a pickup and refunded me accordingly.

During the return process I ordered Ariens Platinum 30 SHO (30") 414cc Two-Stage Snow Blower. First off the shipping carrier was on time and even called an hour before estimated arrival. The Box was perfect and the whoever though of the packaging of this... more

You Will Love It!
We ordered this machine on a Tuesday and it was delivered to our driveway three days later! Uncrated it, was delighted to see all parts right there on the machine (not in a separate bag!) ready for setting up. Diagram (no narrative) instructions are not great, but I could do steps one and two and my techy son did the last three.

Took about an hour. The next day, ten inches of snow fell and I fired up the machine. It is easy to handle,blows snow like crazy and what's not to like? But... more

Used It Yesterday For The First Time
Used it for the first time yesterday, the snow was wet and a little heavy, it worked pretty good so far, and my drive way is fairly large, but it is pulling to the left a little - have to check air in the tires to see if that will fix it.

This is my 1st snow blower I ever had and ever used in my life and I'm in my mid 60's, lets see how things go.
Pros: Features, Quiet, Price, Fast

Excellent Snowblower
At first, I was concerned because it was difficult to adjust to after having used a tractor and blade for 30 years, but on the third time out, I had become very comfortable with the controls, and now can do a much better job in less time.

Quality of the machine is excellent. Uses a lot of fuel when under heavy load though. I'm very happy with this snowblower.
