Talking Video for Ariens "Platinum" lovers...

Link:

Funny isn't it?…

I'm not an anti-Ariens guy… but I posted this for those "haters" who keep telling everyone that Ariens is a "superior" brand to other makes… Yeah, sure...

I watched all his videos related to this. He does a nice job putting them together. But I can’t help but think he was asking too much of this machine.

He subsequently went out and bought a unit, tractor mounted 3 point hitch, powered by PTO. Probably a good call.

First thing I see, is any machine going into snow, that stops the wheels while auger is still going, while it is still in gear, tells me something is wrong, broke or plain out of adjustment.

I have a Yardman 7100 that will walk through that snow like butter …..

"oneacer", your Yardman reminds me of my old Lawn-Boy "826"… built like a tank ...but not powerful enough, (in my case)

I also say he needs some attention to his garage … that is a lot of snow getting inside his garage, as he has to shovel out the inside of his garage … lol

If he pays attention to his machine like his garage, then of course he is not to adept in his pursuits.

Starting a new thread with a two year old video with sarcasm and emojis...who's the "hater"?

I don't know what to make of this guy. There's plenty of videos out there of Platinums working just fine. If nothing else, it's a lesson in why you shouldn't buy snowblowers online if don't know what you're doing. I notice he removed the comments now.

The weight of the cab on the handlebars isn’t helping with his problem in deep snow.

Just for fun, here's an Ariens vs a Honda in deep snow. Silly, but no more silly than the Redneck's videos.

I guess you didn't read my post right… Didn't you notice that I began my post by saying that I am not an "anti-Ariens"guy. It's just that I just happen to see that video and found it funny. I guess that you and I don't have the same sense of humor! I don't "hate" any snowblower. Like everyone else, I have my preferences but don't hate any particular brand...
