Does it matter where you buy an Ariens?

For example, buying from a dealer verses Home Depot

I went to my local green and yellow tractor dealer. Yeah, probably paid a little more but I know when I walk in there I have a service and parts dept that's been there and done that. I think a dealer is more apt to help and stand behind the equipment than some big box store slackey who's there mainly for the paycheck.

If you buy an Ariens from The Home Depot the order actually goes to a authorized Areins dealer and he sets the machine up, delivers it, and instructs you on it's use. The big bonus to my eyes is you can return it to Home Depot for any reason you choose. That's a very powerful reason to purchase at the home depot. That the way it was stated on the HD site and the Ariens site. I think it is still that way, check to be sure.

I purchased at my local dealer, I wanted to give him my business. Now I'm kinda in a mess and wonder if I made the best decision.


So what are your thoughts? One fact trumps all others, that fact is a man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.


My opinion worth price charged.

Good point. Yeah, it would have been great to have it dropped off and a little clue on the operation. I'm not dumb but I'll take some help when needed.
