Model 910995 Specs

Hello everyone-
Thanks again for this forum.
I have a pretty basic question as my knowledge of blowers is pretty basic.
I'm going to need a two stage now instead the single stage Toro I have.
I'm looking at what appears to be a very well-maintained Ariens 910995. Serial Number is 064985. Ariens customer service says these specific models were manufactured in '71 and '72--based on what I've read so far, I'm not sure that '71 and '72 were the only years. I've noticed that many of the members here can't stop praising these specific units. Reliability is very important to me and so is value. Ok-I'm cheap.
I have looked on the forum and on the web but I can't seem to find the specs for this model--height, width, and especially, the weight. I'm concerned about transporting this in our van. The gentleman who is selling the unit says two guys can load this into a van. But like I said, I'm not a big man and I'm now in my 50s.
If anyone out there can point me in the right direction for answers to specification questions, I'd sure appreciate it!
Thank you! Mike

Not sure but maybe this'll help. Found it doing a google search. Appears to be a 6/24 . You won't be picking it up by yourself. You're going to need a small set of ramps. Can pick them up at tractor supply or harbor freight. I'm going to lost a vid for you to watch.
Who cares what year it is as lomg as it's in good condition and performs well.

I have two 1971's, one with a 24" bucket and one with a 32" bucket.
Both are all original, original engine, no mods.
they are great!
The 24" machine is my main snowblower, bought it for $250 in January 2009, used it on nine Western NY winters since, and the only trouble it has given me is minor carb adjustment issues. But once I got that dialed in, its been great.



More info on my machines:
https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...ollection.html

and its actually my original '71 that led to the creation of my Ariens page! (link in my signature below)

The exact weight is fairly irrevelant, because no one manually lifts *any* 2-stage snowblower..
and it wont be too heavy for a van..you will need ramps, you can then run it up the ramps using its own power..totally easy.
it wont need to be running to take it back out of the van, because you then have gravity on your side..also totally easy.

the only potential issue with the older Ariens is the engine. the 50-year old snowblower itself (everthing minus the engine) is totally fine, they are tanks, with good maintance and care they will go another 50-years easy. But the 50-year old engine can be (slightly) more of a concern, simply because engines can wear out faster than the snowblower, because they are a lot more complex and have a lot more moving parts..That's why I bought the "backup" Ariens, in case my first snowblower wont start one winter morning.


but! my worries have been completely unfounded! The original Tecumseh is also going strong! no problems, except for the finicky carb I mentioned. A friend helped me adjust the carb, because I was inexperienced, and since then its been a non-issue. starts and runs fine. So these old Tecumsehs arent as bad as some might think. With proper maintance and care, many of them are also going past thge half-century mark..cant argue with that kind of quality. So I highely recommend 1970's Ariens! Excellent choice IMO. The machines themselves started out excellent quailty, the only variable on condition decades later is previous owner care. But a good one will likely work just fine for many more decades to come..

I assume you are probably looking at a 24" bucket?
I'll do a measurement on mine this afternoon, get the maximum L, W. and H.

I've moved several snowblowers ranging from a Honda HS621 all the way to a Honda HSS1332ATD (to fit this one I had to remove the chute), a Yamaha YS1028J and a few 10000 series Ariens using my van which is a Toyota Sienna (I think you'll be fine).
If you are by yourself you need ramps.
Two people can definitely lift the blower (but I usually use ramps unless I get help from the seller/buyer).

1971 model 910962 dimensions. (Nearly all 10,000 series will be the same, or very close.)

Total length, front of bucket to rear of handlebars: 5' 4".

Width at widest point, the skid shoes on the bottom of the 24" bucket: 26".

Highest point, shift lever on the right-side handlebars, with shifter set to reverse: 38.5".

(It can be made shorter in height if necessary by pushing the handlebars down, which simultaneously raises the bucket,..if transporting in this position, something would need to be placed under the bucket to keep it raised..let me know if you need the maximum shortness achievable this way!)

Thank you all! The video is very helpful. People on youtube are really generous with their time and experience--just like all you guys. YSHS---Harbor Freight is nearby and, coincidentally I also have a Sienna! What length of ramp works for you...I don't have a set and it will probably be best for me to pick a set up.
Thanks!
Mike

This are the ones I bought @ https://www.tractorsupply.com/?cm_mm...SRLxoCCcfw_wcB
(when they were on sale), the ones I have are natural aluminum colored not black as these (this are an overkill just for loading/unloading a snowblower as they are rated for 3000lbs, but I'll need them for other heavy uses) They are 90" long.

These seem like would work

You can search at Harbor freight for something like the ones I posted.
I like the curved ramps as it makes it easier to transition from the ramps into the van.
