Ariens 10000 yawns...

About 8 to 10 inches of fluff in S.E. Mass. today. Old Mom used to clear it with a broom. Me, I fired up the 7/24 Ariens 10000. At half throttle it cleared it with a yawn. Gotta have some fun, right? MH

If you crack a smile any time when blowing snow, you must be doing something right.

Same here in S.E. Mass. My 1969 Ariens at half throttle cleared my driveway with ease this morning. Even cleared the road area by my neighbors where the slushy plow snow was just for fun!

I was making my first pass this morning and to my surprise my blower was only throwing the light snow 15 feet. When I looked down at the controls I realized I hadn't given it any throttle yet...15 feet at idle...I'll take that.

I feel totally ripped off too! They were saying 14 in he for us on Long Island, I ended up with about 4-5 inches. I was wandering the neighborhood trying to have some fun. That powder snow doesn't do too far at all, what a let down. But the old Tecumseh purred along, so I'm not really complaining...
