New to Me Ariens 70s 32

I always wanted a Ariens 70s 32 inch snowblower. I have a couple similar 24 inch models. One came up on craigslist nearby, and I was lucky enough to get it. Looks pretty good overall. It was stored for several years in a shed. After after a little TLC it fired up.

I am always amazed how mice can cram so much stuff into a little space!

Nice find!
That's a "first year" 924000 series, 1974, the ones that still had the robust cast-iron gearbox.
and matching serial numbers too! that's pretty uncommon on snowblowers overall.
for some reason, Ariens was matching up the tractor and serial numbers for a short time during that era,
but it didn't happen for very long..perhaps a couple years only.

that thing is a beast. i have a soft spot for the 924000 series ariens.

get it running and slap an impeller kit on it and you will be blasting though snow drifts in no time.

Scot. Thanks, and thanks for putting together your website. I have used it more than a few times over the years.

That looks like the one I'm looking for! That's a nice straight looking machine, hopefully all the internals match. Take care of that Ariens badge on the bucket. I ordered 3 online (2 NOS) that arrived either broken or so sun rotted you could barely pick them up. I know what you're saying about the dam mice, this is a pic from a Tec project I recently finished. Pics don't show it was equally packed up by the oil fill tube also. At least you know it did indeed sit for awhile. Wish you good luck with it, that's a keeper for sure.

I just picked up a 32 in 924000 myself a few weeks ago. it needs a snow shield heater box ( it came with an air cleaner) and the previous owner scabbed on a Honda gas tank ( which will be replaced thanks to Jackmels!!!!! This is going to stay in my stable of forever snowblowers, so I have been spending more time on the ones I have for sale.....but this is going to get an impeller kit for sure....may be a 212 predator down the road...but the tecumseh is still strong!

Fantastic machine,I have a 924024 8 hp 32, only difference is the postion of the chute Rod and that's about it.
These 924 series machine are great,easy to do maintenance.A drive disc change in 10 minutes.There are bearings, few bushings to worry about.I think you'd have a tough time to find a tougher front auger and gears.


Hope you have fun with your 924.

Cheers

Ariens 924024 8 hp 32” now a 10 hp
Ariens 910008 7 hp 24”
