New Ariens User

Apologize in advance for newbie easy questions. I just bought an Ariens Professional 32 on Craigslist and use it for first time this weekend. I had a few questions? How do you turn on the light? Is it the hand warmer toggle? Didnt use it when plowed and cant find any mention in user manual? Second, turning my chute is like wresting a bear. Is it always that difficult? And last steering, it says automatic Steering, does that mean turning? What is the secret? I really had to man handle it to turn? I dont think I have the Auto Turn feature? This was bought new in Winter of 2011.

Thanks in advance from the new guy. A 160 yard driveway and hoping to save some money over hiring a plower.

That was before auto turn was introduced (I think it was introduced winter 2013/14). Do you have a handle to squeeze below the left hand grip?

There is no switch for the light (at least no factory-installed switch). Before you buy a bulb, I'd make sure you have power to the bulb by testing with a multimeter. Many times there is no power (broken wire or wire chewed by a mouse, stator problem, etc.).
