Ariens 926 Pro with Tecumseh 9 hp engine

Hi guys.
I recently bought a Ariens 926 Pro with a Tecumseh 9 hp engine.

I have no idea which production-year it is, or what separates earlier/ older 926 -blowers.

Any of you who please could enlighten me on what separates the Pro from other contemporary Ariens-models and which years the 926 Pro were manufactured ? I guess the Tecumseh -engine tells something about production-years; as Tecumseh at some point quit making smaller motors...

I`m greatful for your help :-)

If you post the snowblower model and serial numbers (from the tag on the back of the frame) and the serial number of the engine, someone here will be able to give you the info you need.

Not sure what year yours is but I owned an 05 or so pro26. It was a nice machine but the carburetor was prone to fouling. Just loved to surge.

Ariens 926 Pro with Tecumseh 9 hp engine-ariens-datasticker.jpg

The sticker on the blower says its a 926301 -model. No direct indication of year.

According to this site: https://scotlawrence.github.io/ariens/Page9.html , the 926000 -series became available from 2005.
It also informs that the 926000 -series consisted of both a consumermodel and a Pro-model; with "DLE" - suffix.
My blower is marked "926 Pro". Not "DLE".

The refered websight also says 2008.09 was last year with Tecumseh-engines; as my blower got.

So I guess the blower was new between 2005 and 2008/ 2009.....
Any way of narrowing the age down more direct ?

The engine serial will likely determine the year (or two) it was made. Can you post those numbers?
