I didn't see a picture of a 1969 on page 5 so I am curious as to when they made the change?
Good question!
and I dont know the answer..but its almost certaintly 1969, because:

Ariens used the same 24" scoop model in 1965, 66, 67, and '68.
The model 7-10M scoop attachment:

http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/SSA-65.pdf 1965 model 7-10M sno-thro attachment. (68001-87600)
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/SSA-66.pdf 1966 model 7-10M sno-thro attachment. (87601-114900)
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/SSA-67.pdf 1967-1968 model 7-10M sno-thro attachment. (114901 and up)

We last see the 7-10M in 1968..
then im lacking data specifically for 1969..No one has ever sent me photos of a 1969 machine!
But then yolu noticed in 1970 the pattern is slightly different..

So since we know the 7-10M scoop was last used in 1968, we can quite reasonably deduce that the new version started in 1969..
Not proven yet! but IMO its 90% certain..

I had been shopping for a snowblower a couple weeks ago due to all the snow storms we have had in northern NJ this year. Thanks to finding this forum and your web site, I decided to buy an Ariens. Your web site really made the difference! I ordered an Ariens Hydro Pro Track 32 (#926415). It should arrive in about 3 weeks. I may not have my Ariens before this season is over, but I will be ready for future years.

Another reason why I bought an Ariens is their longevity. I have friends who have owned their Ariens for over 15 years and still going strong (they live in CT). I used to live in CT and everyone I know who has a 2-stage snowblower owns an Ariens.

Thanks for your web site! I look forward to reading your updates!

Scot,
I was reading your history of Ariens Snow Throwers and I think I have figured out that mine is a 1980 model year. I bought it used from a friend who had bought it new for his parents. It is Model 924050 Ser. 020608. You have pictures of Brandon R.'s 1980 with Ser. # 020654, so am I to conclude that mine was made 46 units before his?
Not important, but if you find the time to confirm this, I'd appreciate it.

WOW !!! A lot of work went ( and is going ) into that link
Found out that the blower I buried in the storage trailer because it didn't run well and eventually stopped running is a '73
Maybe next spring I'll try and drag it out and take a good look at what all is wrong with it

In your page I see that there may be a discrepancy regarding the tractor model # 910006 as to 8 hp or 6 hp. This one has a 6 hp. motor but I can't verify if the motor is original. On the motor I did not find a model or serial number , even on the tag you showed in one of your pics .
The tractor and blower model and serial numbers match the '73 range though

I really appreciate all the work and time you put into the sites, Scot. You do it the way I would if I had the talent to do it.
