Deluxe 30 Video "DEEP DRIFTS"

Nice video. At the end of which the gent has nothing but praise for his 2013 Ariens in the 2014 blizzard. No auto turn on this one. Looks like a motor cycle clutch handle to release the wheels.

He's workin' that thing like a rented mule. He ought to drop to the next slower speed and he wouldn't be stressing it quite so much. My humble opinion.

What'd he say?? 9 or 10 cc's? I bet. I believe he means cubic inches or maybe even horsepower. It sure ain't cc's though. I gotta wonder what's those drinks? He's pretty amped up.
Strange... You just don't hear people talking much about horsepower any more.

Heck with that!! He could EASILY increase the speed and it would still keep up. The motor doesn't sound stressed and the snow is not pouring out the sides....this means the blower is discharging the snow faster than it's accumulating in the housing and therefore it's doing what it should be doing. There's nothing wrong with loading the motor a bit. Heck, IMO, it's the proper way to break an engine in. Higher loads = higher cylinder pressure = properly seated rings. I know a guy who works in R&D for Briggs and he told me to break my Pro 32 in under decent engine loads for this reason.

If you want to see/hear someone working their blower pretty good, click -HERE-.

<edit>
I watched the whole thing and there was one instance were it was being loaded pretty good, but the majority of the time it wasn't being loaded all that bad, IMO.

And I got to use one just this morning to clear off 2-4 inches of the stuff at one of the church buildings I look after They are amazing machines. I love it. Ours is about 4 years old.
