Bought 102015...no Use Till Nyc 2nd Largest Snowstorm Ever
So 10/2015, I bought the ARIENS for the engine CC size for a 24inch unit and ARIENS reputation.

Twiddling my fingers and thumbs for the past 3 months till 01232016 when NYC got hit by the 2nd largest snowstorm ever.

I live in Queens and got over 28 inches with drifts in my driveway of over 3-4 feet high. I cleared my 80 foot driveway, my walkways and my rear yard in about 8 hours.

Wow 8 hours you say that is too long. But my driveway does not allow me to pile snow on the sides. I have... more

Almost Really Good
Purchased the snow blower in Fall of 2015. I only needed it twice that winter and it performed well. I was very happy.
The first major snow of 2016 was about a week ago. Within a few minutes of clearing the driveway, I lost control of the speed.

I was left with only "high speed forward" and the shifter became unresponsive. This was a Friday evening and tech support was unavailable. It was late at night and I was able to manage to complete the clearing job in high speed... more

What Is Going On With The Chute???
My wife bought me this monster for my retirement gift before the winter of 2014-15. I live in Massachusetts and we were buried. Unfortunately, the control chute for the snow broke down and I had to hold with one hand while trying to control blower with the other. The store I bought it from had to pick up and repair it.

Received it back and during the next big storm the same thing happened halfway through my efforts to blow driveway. With the non-stop forecast of more storms I just lived with... more

Almost Good Again
This is my second review of this snow blower. I continue to be stunned at what a cheap piece of junk I purchased. After the slider fork fell off the axle early this winter (see my other review), and I fixed it by bending the cheaply made stamped steel fork back on and into a better shape... I have had another issue that involved a cheaply made, stamped steel part. Interestingly, it is a fork of another type.

I bumped lightly into a small branch of a tree hanging over the driveway with the... more
Cons: Cheap stamped steel parts

Ok
Although I have only used this blower once when we had over two foot of snow and was heavy and wet blower worked well the only thing is I wish that you could adjust the handle bars a little lower.
Pros: High Quality, Features, Reliable, Price

Made In Usa Family Owned
Just bought this snow blower and at this time with no snow yet have not used it. We chose this snow blower because of brand name, is built in USA and is a family owned company. One of the features that we like is how easy it is to change the snow discharge chutes direction. One thing that I would have liked to have had on this blower is a hour meter. Because it did not have one, I installed an after market one on this blower.
Pros: High Quality, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Price

Heavy Duty
I have used my brothers 2 year old platinum 24 in the past and when I bought my house I was sure I had to have one. This year for the same price this more powerful engine was available so it was a no brainier.

I shopped around at the local big box stores, sears and independent distributors. It was exhausting to find so many different features and price points. For me I needed power and dependability since the plow trucks point the plow to my side of the street. Most cheaper snow blowers I... more

Expensive But Built Like A Brickhouse
SBD is fantastic as is the bottom line price compared to getting it from other sites or locally.

The major issue is setup but if you can handle that, then you get a good deal with no tax or shipping expensive except for the lift gate service.


The price is expensive for the unit but all my local and online dealers charged same price or even more along with shipping and taxes. So in my opinion SBD delivers the best price as long as you can handle the 2 hour assemble.

As others have... more

"Ordered on 10/08/2015 and arrived via trucking company ABF on 10/14/2015. I mis-understood meaning of lift gate service and did not order it at time of order. I called and spoke to Brian at SBD late on 10/12/2015 and he upgraded my delivery to include lift gate for the normal fee of $50. Brian then faxed the updated information directly to ABF. Delivery date came and ABF showed up within the delivery time frame and brought the unit via a palletjack up to my garage which is about 80 feet from the road. It comes on a large pallet that the trucking companies use to move to and fro but directly attached to the the ARIENS box is another smaller better quality palleted that is securely attached to the ARIENS box. This is great as it isolates the box from the larger pallet and possible damage from the forklifts/palletjacks. The driver even helped to remove the unit from the larger pallet and remove it to his truck. SBD use of ABF was great and the delivery was so quick and easy to set up a delivery window. SBD also came through when I discovered my chute had interior cosmetic damages and exposed metal as well. They arranged for a can of touch up paint and a new chute to be delivered. The price is expensive for the unit but all my local and online dealers charged same price or even more along with shipping and taxes. So in my opinion SBD delivers the best price as long as you can handle the 2 hour assemble. As others have said the pictograph chart leaves a lot to be desired. I used the chart, online videos and the actual manual to reinforced the pictograph diagrams. With another person took about two hours but I took my time. The procedure if you have your tools ready should take at best less than an hour."

Perfect Blower For New England
Just ordered an Ariens Platinum 24 SHO between the major snow storms this year. The machine came just in time for the last storm which dropped about 18 inches of fresh snow on top of the many feet of snow we already had. The shipping times and delivery were as advertised. This machine was perfect! It powered through all of the new and old snow, allowing me to easily handle the snow banks left from the plows as well as widen the paths for the sidewalk and driveway. I was able to clear... more
