Great Blower, Price And Shipping!
Super experience with Snowblowers Direct. I live in the mountains in Lake Tahoe, record snows have drained the local shops, including Home Depot of all larger snowblowers...no problem at Snowblowers Direct...had this model in stock, and received it in 5 days. This Ariens Deluxe SHO 28 is a great price point, and really does the job. I had it delivered yesterday, took about 20 minutes to get it in working order (highly recommend watching the video provided on this site on how to assemble).

Disappointed So Far
I ordered this machine at the end of November. The delivery was on time and the extra fee to deliver it to my garage door was worth the money.

Assembly was OK except for the handle bars. The instruction guide is minimal and graphic, but the steps can be figured out (I used a couple of YouTube videos for help, too) The alignment of the handlebar pieces was poor and required more leaning and twisting to get the screw holes to line up than they should have.

I had a tough time opening... more

Very Nice Snowblower
It has been a very good snow blower so far, plenty of power to blow wet heavy snow, easy to put together, I like the automatic differential, I also added the hand warmers on it which work very well, I think it is a good snow blower for its money when you compare it to some of the higher priced units out there , this is my second Ariens Snow blower I gave my first one to my daughter and son in-law which is 20 years old and still going strong hope I can say the same about this one.

Very Good Machine
Snow blower works very well in the wet heavy snow of NE. Found unit bogs down on first pass with a full Mouth (housing) full of snow. After that, no problems. Not happy with having to reach over to use the crank to change the direction of the chute. Has an electric starter. I used it once to make sure it worked. Unit always starts on second or third pull, even when the unit is cold!
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Reliable, Quiet
Cons: Heavy

Nice Machine
Ordering was easy and done online. The shipping company rolled it right into the garage. The box was easily cut away and the machine rolled right off the skid. I put it together via the instructions and added the gas. Started on the first pull (as long as I had the key in!)

I plowed my driveway and the snow the plows left at the bottom of my driveway in minutes. Did a 300 foot length of sidewalk, two neighbors' driveways and my mother-in-law's driveway in less then two hours. Most... more

Works Great!
I have used it 3 times already, including the 12 to 15 inches of snow on Feb 9th. It was medium to heavy snow, not light powder, and the Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO ate right through it all. No issues whatsoever. Starts on the 1st or 2nd pull every time. Have not yet tried the electric starter.

"Everything was perfect except for a very shallow dent on the top of the gas tank that i noticed while unboxing it. It was only a little bit larger than a Quarter in size, so I decided it was not worth my time to bother with contacting customer service over a little dent. Ariens shouldn't be sending blemished products to their retailers."

Ariens Deluxe 28 Sho Snow Blower
I just used this to clear my 85 ft driveway to two car garage under the house and two neighbors driveways after our 14-16 inch snowfall on Long Island Feb 9, 2017. It threw the snow probably 50-60 ft from the base of my driveway. The snow was heavy, but this snow blower cleared right thru it with NO hesitation.

I purchased it from snowblowersdirect.com with the tailgate lift delivery. It came very quickly and was easy to assemble. I waxed the blades and chute with car wax to help keep the... more
