Q: I recently bought one of these machines from SBD and I love it. My driveway has a fairly steep hill in one part, and the machine slips a little in this area. I would like to get a set of tire chains - this helped my old machine a lot with slipping. The tires on the new machine are marked 16x6.50-8. What chains should I get?
by Paul Jones from Connecticut on December 15, 2013

A: Paul - the Ariens 926053 snow blower would require the Ariens 72601800 tire chains: 72601800

Wow! A Real Professional Piece Of Equipment
The Hydro Pro 28 is an impressive machine. If you are on the fence if the hydro-static transmission is worth it, or even the professional over the platinum... it's not even a decision, this is the way to go.

I spent way more than I originally planned to when I started shopping, but I didn't want to have any regrets since this isn't the type of purchase you can just bring back. After doing my research for two months I finally landed on the Hydro Pro 28" and build.com because it was the... more

Ready For Snow In Ct
After the 36" in 24 hours storm we had last year I decided it was time to purchase a snow blower.

I conducted extensive research both in person and online. Looked at Cub Cadet, Toro, Husqvarna, Troy Built and a few others. All the Ariens models seemed superior in general construction from the base models through the Hydro Pros. Some of the others I was able to flex the intake shrouds significantly with my hands. The gauge of the metals and parts in general seem superior with the Ariens... more

Hydro Rocks!
I had been looking for a a few years at buying a snow blower to clear my large driveway that can easily park 7 cars in it and has a well used three car garage adjacent. Reviews and friends told that the Ariens was the only one to buy due to its design and reliability. On occasion, I have borrowed a snow blowers from friends so I have a little bit of experience and a not so pleasant adventure with a light weight one. What a work out!

When I saw the Hydro I just had to bite the bullet and get... more

Waiting For Snow In Ct
After a 30-year old machine became incapacitated last year in our epic 35+inch overnight snowfall, I decided to buy new instead of repair. Wanted a machine that could handle almost anything including the heavy, wet gloppy snow we usually get here in CT and would be reliable - hopefully for another 30 years. Online reviews said that this machine was a consistent top scorer. "Bob" clinched the deal in his video when he talked of "blasting snow halfway down the block". ... more

Works Very Well, But Winter Easy So Far And Little Used.
Just opposite of last year with one large snowfall after another with heavy (wet) snow, this winter has locally been kind. I have used the new unit only 3 times, and all were 6" or less of light snow. Unit turns so easily compared to older unit.
Assembly took me longer than what I read on blogs, but once confusion solved on cables, was no problem.

The unit has not been challenged as of yet. Very happy so far.

Assembled And On The Job
I received my new Ariens snowblower, uncrated it, put it together and was in action within 48 hours. We live in evergreen Colorado and have had a 6, 10 and then a little 3 inch snow.

The machine actually performed better on the bigger jobs. I had to make a small adjustment to get down to the pavement. Bring on the rest of winter!

"It was shipped to me quicker than I thought, which was good. Ended up getting a specialist on the phone to help me make a decision on final make and model- very helpful and saved me the hassle of not seeing product. I went to Lowe's and looked at presides and got a fair price and warranty. had to buy warranty at other places."

Delivered on time with lift-gate service, backed up to my garage door, unloaded with electric fork-lift inside my garage. A local driver who lived a few miles from me delivered the machine.He took his time, allowing me to inspect the crate and machine inside, and also checked for damage himself.

Excellent service by the trucking company and the driver. My congratulations to them and Snow Blowers Direct. I would buy from them again on any product line. The machine started on the second pull,... more

Great Machine!
Got the 28" Hydro Pro in time to clean up the remnants of the storm that hit the Mid-Atlantic in January. Went through heavy, packed snow and ice easily. Throws wet snow much further than many machines do in the fluffy stuff. Assembly was interesting, as the assembly ďpicturesĒ without text would have required a degree of clairvoyance that I donít have.

The on-line assembly instructions were more helpful, even though both the pictures and the on-line information didnít quite equate... more

First And, I Expect, Last
I have never before owned or even operated a snow blower. Over the years, I have hand-shoveled multi-foot snowfalls off of driveways, sidewalks, a small patio (for access to food storage), and even roofs. However, unlike myself (!?), my wood & teflonned metal shovel is showing its quarter-century age, and I now live in a home that has more than 3000 sq ft of clearable walks, drive, and parking.

I had studied snow equipment in the past, including Ariens, but without making any purchase.... more

"Because of my circumstances, I paid for expedited handling and for lift gate service upon delivery. Everything proceeded perfectly, including the deliverer's gracious, unexpected help in moving the crate up the steep, slightly cleared driveway so that I could perform assembly in the garage instead of on the street."

I have used it only once this year. It worked well and took care of the snow the way I had expected it to do. What took me so long before getting one? Great!
