Ariens Professional 21

Does anybody have the Ariens Professional 21?

Either the regular or the one with the remote chute?

Thinking of upgrading my single stage within 6 months or so...

There was this recent thread, at least:
https://www.snowblowerforum.com/foru...gle-stage.html

I just got a different-brand SS with remote chute control, I really like that feature. Much quicker and less cumbersome that having to go around to the side of the machine to re-aim the chute.

My Pro 21 doesn't clear the driveway (concrete, flat, new). It throws more on my feet than it throws forward...

Mine is for sale, keeping my Deluxe 28.

I'm sorry, that sucks. My SS is a Toro, and it's new-to-me, so I'm still getting experience with it. It has a spring-loaded plastic scraper bar. From some info on Ariens' site, is looks like the 21 Pro's scraper bar is also spring-loaded. Mine pivots, and the spring keeps it pivoted down, I'm assuming the 21 Pro works the same way.

With a new scraper bar and paddles, mine really doesn't fling any back at my feet so far. The only times it does is when I still have the paddles spinning, while pushing down on the handle to lift the front, to pull it backwards. In that scenario, as I raise the front, the still-spinning paddles fling some snow back at my feet. If I let off the handle sooner, letting the paddles stop first, no snow sprays backwards when I do this.

Is your scraper bar in good shape, and pivoting freely? Does using a higher or lower handle height reduce the snow that flings at your feet?

I love my Toros, but every time I look at the way the Pro 21 is built I feel I just have to have one! Really nice!

Wake me up when the snow's done...
