Jack there is nothing to grease in there, I believe all the newer models have a short shaft coming out of the gearbox and supported on the ends by the bucket, Thus no need for zurks on the auger. Big cost savings for them Iím guessing.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Iíve taken the gearbox out but have yet to need to open one up, I like the full length shafts myself but I own 2 personal blowers with the new gearboxes

I looked on the Ariens website and a frontal view of the deluxe shows the grease zerks and shear bolt between the gearbox and the first support bar on left and right side. The zerk is at 90 degrees to the shear bolt and outboard of it. That is the same setup as my 2015 Platinum SHO.
