Cool pics bathed and changed the oil

Well another good season of snowblowing has passed. The deluxe 28
ran great no real issues.I did find the wheels or axle was froze once or twice but rocking it a bit back and forth freed it up. So now the warm weather is here I think its time for some maintenance like greasing the
rear axle,spraying the cables ect...
as a side note the led lights worked great and so did the ariens heated grips. Well worth the investment!

Started the big clean and check on mine yesterday, time to switch the blower for the mower.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

I picked up this ariens self propelled mower on sale last Sept. It was the last one in my area that I could find.If anyones in the market for a new mower get the self propelled unit, well worth the extra money. This one has the brigg/Stratton 6.75 on it.

Yes the wheels, got them from home depot & been using them for 2 seasons now. It was something different to try out than skids. At least the
wheels are holding up pretty good with no wear that I can see.
They have a sealed bearing inside of each wheel to protect them from water.ect.

The thread I was reading Ariens Auto-Turn Adjustment they were to help with the auto turn feature on the Ariens deluxe 28 and other models. I have a 10 year old 8/24 with the locked rear axle and a new 28 Deluxe and used them back to back and the older 8/24 works so much better, much less effort, better traction and a cleaner job in the end. Yes, I did check the alignment and when it went into the shop for a shifting issue the dealer also checked it again.
