New Deluxe 24 and newb intro

Afternoon everyone! I'm combining both an intro post and a question into one, hope you all don't mind.
Anyway, many, many moons ago I was brought into this world and soon after I discovered I needed a snow blower. lol
I had an old yard machines blower that served its purpose for many years, but after many years of not being taken care of, and browsing these evil forums, I picked up an Ariens Deluxe 24 from my local dealer. They assembled and dropped it off.
Yesterday we got some snow in Chicago, not quite enough to warrant using a machine this size, but I had a new toy and wanted to play.
So I fired it up and noticed that the augers were already spinning and when my girlfriend pressed on the handle that controls the auger, it didn't speed up anything. My thought is that the auger shouldn't be spinning unless the handle is depressed. Just looking for some info.

Side note, that 2 stage yard machines will be for sale if anyone is interested, needs a carb (that I might have), sheer pin, and some TLC.

ekaz ,

I also have a new Ariens Deluxe 24. Haven't used it in snow yet. It was delivered to me from the factory, so I got to do all of the set up on it, which included adjusting the cables for the auger and the clutch for the drive wheels.

The auger should not be turning unless the handle is depressed. If you then also press the handle for the drive wheels, you can let up on the handle for auger and they will keep turning until you let up on drive wheel handle. If the auger is spinning/turning without the drive wheels engaged and without holding down the auger engagement handle, you can adjust it yourself by using the information in the service manual, which can be downloaded from Ariens. Or, in your case your dealer, if it is not Home Depot or Lowes, should adjust it for you.

You can download the service manual from Ariens here: Ariens Order Owners Manuals

aboard ekaz!

Good choice with the Deluxe 24. I also had an MTD that served me well for nearly 20 years.

Thanks for the reply! So I wasn't crazy in thinking that the auger shouldn't be spinning.

I got a Deluxe 24 last February myself. My auger was doing the same thing, even though it was setup by a dealer. I believe all you have to do is pull the cotter pin at the bottom of the auger control near the base of the unit. Then you just screw in a little more length into the control rod. It just has a little too much tension on it. So it is not completely disengaging. It only takes a couple of minutes to do. Good luck, and congrats on you new Ariens.

I was just looking at the manual and will adjust it. Supposed to get 50" of snow this year and as much as I dislike snow removal, I'm kind of looking forward to it this year. And not content to leave well enough alone, been looking at the HID upgrade. This forum is almost as bad as the car forums when it comes to modding. haha
