New to Ariens

Hello everyone...I'm new here and new to Ariens. Just wanted to say I enjoy all the info I've gotten from all of you and that it's been very helpful. I purchased a new leftover Deluxe 24 921031 with the Briggs Polar Force 1150. I'm very impressed with it and it performed flawlessly this past winter. Could I get some opinions on my machine, knowing the newest ones have the auto turn and the slightly
larger Ariens engine, hopefully I didn't settle for something inferior or outdated. Thanks...

Welcome to the forum Garnet!
As long as it does what you need it to do (and it sounds like it does) why worry? New machines with new bells and whistles come out every year. Lots of folks on this forum are using machines (especially Ariens) that are likely older than you are and are perfectly happy with how they work. If you kept waiting in case something better just might come along, you would still be shovelling and that would just be sad. . I hate shovelling.

I think there is an upgrade kit for the auto-turn if you wanted to add it. Since you're already impressed with it and it performed well, anyone else's opinion doesn't really matter because it fits your needs. With that said, my opinion is you have a good machine and will enjoy it for many years.

Thank you for responding, all. You're right I'm happy with it and she runs excellent. What more can I ask for?

Is it possible to replace the existing bulb with an LED or just adding LED in addition?

Usually with adding LEDs you'll need to add/build a rectifier to convert the produced AC to DC to drive the LED. The components are easy to get on line and simple to install and the LED(s) lighting is far superior.
Do you have an idea of how may watts you're engine will support ??

The first few pages of the thread in the link below explain it pretty well along with specific parts. The bulk of this thread is different members asking about their machines and some photos of their setups and night time photos showing their lights.
