Info/Date On ST1336LE Professional

Hi All,

New member here and looking for a new (to me) snowblower. I came across a guy selling an Ariens ST1336LE Professional, but I haven't been able to find much about it. Can you guys help? Seller gave me model# 924500 and serial# 000680. Any idea how old it is, any issues with this model, and is his asking price reasonable ($800)? Condition looks good, not much rust, if any, and he says it's almost like new. Seller is in Northern IL around Chicago if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum !!!

That series started around 1989 till 1995 or 96, I forget the exact dates but those are a good ballpark number. Price seems good if in nice condition. Check to see if the front augers are loose / move a little on the shaft or are rusted solid. With the machine not running... You grab the augers with both hands pull down on one side and hold tension then try to move up and down the other side to see if it moves freely while you are still holding tension on the opposite side. It should slightly move a little bit, then you hold tension on the side you just checked and see if the opposite side is also loose or moves a little bit, if you have no movement while holding tension on one side that means it is Rusted to the shaft. If it is Rusted the shear pin will not break when you encounter an obstacle and it could damage the gearbox. The other thing to check for on these style machines is a worn-out impeller bearing... With the machine not running reach in down through the Chute of the bucket and grab the shaft and try to see if it moves up and down. If it does move up and down that means that impeller bearing will need to be replaced. Also you must check the axle bearings as they tend to be bad also, lift up the machine by grabbing the handles and look at where the axle goes into the snow blower housing there should not be a lot of movement there, when the bearing is worn the axle will move a lot where it connects to the bottom of the snowblower chassis, usually from looking at the handles the right side one wears out first and then the left side one. I would also look to see if there is a lot of blue smoke from the muffler when you start up the machine, if there is a lot of blue smoke it tells you that that engine has a lot of hours on it.
There are other things to check, but those four the most common things that go wrong with those machines. Even if some of the things I mentioned you find need repair, it is still a tank of a machine and with a little love and caring it should be around for another 40 years. Good luck with your purchase and once again welcome to the Forum.

id say 2004 2005 was last yr 924 series
le is not a pro series dle is pro
if it has the cast iron gear box and the differental its a pro
the le still has the pro 16 inch rakes and the full size pro bucket
you can check my pics
i sold a restored 924128 1332le with impeller kit

new impeller bearing

oo grease gearbox
etc for 950
i thought all 36 inch machines got the cat iron gearbox pro machines in 36 have battery start
I know after 2005 dle meant pro
you could get 2008 1130dle and that had a alum gearbox but that was not the fullsize bucket

Thanks for the replies and info so far. Really helpful.

The unit does have an onboard battery on the back of the bucket. However, it doesn't have the oval headlight. It's a rectangular light mounted to a post/bracket. Chute rotation is by manual crank, not the newer style motor. Decals on the bucket have LE (not DLE from what I can see), but does say "Professional" under the model name. I'll see if I can post pics later today if that helps. Seller is a little over two hours away so I'm trying to get as much info as possible before going to see it in person.

The headlight setup (rectangular on a pivot) sounds like mine, a 1024 Pro from 2000, I believe. Mine is a 924120.

Mine has the cast iron gearbox, and a differential. Also the newer-style bucket (taller intake, and different side profile from the one on my '93-94 ST824.

They didn't use LE/DLE terminology on labels on my machine.

Wow, I guess I didn't realize it was that heavy. But my driveway is about 270' long with half of it 12' wide and the other half 35' wide. Also have 60' of driveway approach to clear up by the road. Sidewalks are another 200' (but the city does those if I don't want to).

How difficult is this machine to turn? Is it balanced over the tires reasonably well where it pivots easily, or do you really have to horse it around?
