Ariens Classic

Hi everyone and happy new year.

Was just thinking about the classic line. Theres only 1 video on YouTube that I can find and no threads that I can find here.

Is it that no one buys them or that they never break down ? 🙂

Sorry. The classic 24 that's below the delux. Think it has 208cc engine.

You give up a bit with the classic. Mainly, a smaller engine, aluminum gear case and it’s missing the strut to hold the auger from the top.

But you still get Ariens 3 year warranty. If you don’t get a ton of snow this will likely suit you well. If your budget is at this price point, I would absolutely choose it over other brands. If you can afford a couple hundred dollars extra or will use it quite a bit, get a Deluxe 24.

Classic = budget line. Smallest engine. If buying new you're better off going with the larger engine.

I will say I put a 208 cc Chonda on a 24 inch 10000 series and it was a good performer

as far as Ariens budget order for 24" it goes like this.

Sno-Tec-smaller tires with no headlight and plastic chute (painted Black)
Classic- same as Sno-Tek except it has a metal chute (first with Ariens Orange)
Compact- Has larger 223cc engine, Larger tires and headlight
Deluxe 24- Has 8" rims, 254cc engine and and all the other options except heated grips and is the first out of the budget line of blowers

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.

This is the machine we are talking about in this thread:

https://www.ariens.com/en-us/snow-pr...sic/classic-24

This is the 3rd year for this model.
