arians 924let sitting long time

hi. i just found an arians 924 let with tracks that has been sitting for about 12 years.they paid $1900.00 used 2 times was to hard for them to handle. looks brand new. they are asking $600. the gas was left in so probably will need carb. wondering if it is worth the risk ? and if there is anything i should be worried about. thanks.

If it looks like new I'd grab it. You'll likely need to check out the drive and go through the adjustments and lube everything but it sounds like a nice find.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Had a similar situation with a ST926DLE, Sat for 8 ish years and was only used a year and still looked brand new, All that was needed was a light carb cleaning and it fired right up.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

only thing i would be worried about sitting that long frozen drive components and possibly frozen rakes. if gas was left in it for 12 years just get a new carburetor for 10 bucks that carburetor will be destroyed

If you pass on it, depending on the location, I am interested.

That brings up a very good question for my situation since I'll be picking my new 921052 up in a couple of weeks.

Is there anything that should be done to the tracks themselves for maintenance during the regular season and the off-season as well?

I plan on storing mine covered in a shed - direct sunlight is never good for polymers & I'm not a fan of Armour-All either.

Anything else that anyone can think of?

admittedly have never owned a tracked machine, but i would store it in the service position ( check this with dealer) and rotate the tracks a half turn a couple or few times during the off season. it may not be necessary, but just something i would do !

Most likely those carbs are dirt cheap. I just replaced one from a Toro 824 Tecumpseh for less than you can buy a new float bowl, $14. Didnít even have to set it Find out what model carb matches it and then hit Amazon /EBay.
