What Ariens model compares to a JD 828D?

Hi guys,

Thought I would post this question on the Ariens section although I actually have a John Deere 828D which was made by Ariens.

I would like to determine which Ariens model in closest to the JD 828D. The JD is a 1999 model with the "pro style" bucket and I have attached a picture for reference.

I want to have a comparable Ariens number to refer to when looking for parts in the future.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am not familiar with the new Ariens, but you need new skid shoes.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Thanks Shryp,

You are right, new skid shoes and a new scrapper blade along with a little bucket repair as the PO wasn't too concerned about setting the shoes to the right height and/or replacing them when needed.

I was hoping some one familiar with Ariens could suggest a comparable model that used the same 28 inch bucket/auger assembly and a model which used the same tractor/driveline assembly built around 1999.

I am not sure if Ariens produced a 828 model around that year or not.

Here are some models that might be comparable:

924101 - ST928
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/02472600.pdf
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/02472500B.pdf
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/00040600.pdf
manuals are dated 1997, and models likely ran 1997 to 1999.
(individual models generally have a two or three year run.)

924104 - ST1028
same manuals as 924101.

924112 - ST928LE
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/02478200D_ENG.pdf
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/02478300F.pdf
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/00040700.pdf
manuals dated 1999.

The engine HP isnt terribly relevant..several different engine sizes would have been used on the same machines..probably 8hp, 9hp and 10hp..
so dont go by engine size alone..its the other features of the machine that are more relevant.

Full lineup of models here:

to look up other owners manuals, go here:

Ariens Order Owners Manuals

enter the model number, and use 001000 as the serial number.

Are you trying to keep from paying the higher JD dealer price for parts or ??

Why not just look up your parts on the JD site and then use a search engine, ebay, amazon, searspartsdirect, ... to cross the parts over to something more reasonable in $$ ? Don't forget to try the JD dealer as usually he'll be really high but sometimes it can surprise you.

Considering JD wants $100+ for the Ariens belt cover, it's good to cross reference I remember redoing my '89 826 and the JD dealer wanted $40 apiece for bushings that crossed to a Toro part number. $6 ea. at local Toro dealer, and $2 ea. at the local hardware.

I am thinking exactly along the same lines as jtclays and have had similar experiences with my local Deere dealers. I want to have an alternate supply option if possible.

I can also use the Ariens cross reference model to source parts from other suppliers as Ariens is a much more common name in walk behind blowers than JD and since this is actually an Ariens product rebranded to Deere it seemed like a logical option to source parts.

Scot, Thanks for the model numbers. They should give me a good starting point to narrow down similar Ariens models. I agree with your comment on engine size. It was more auger/housing and tractor driveline parts I was interested in cross referencing.

VT, I looked around when you originally asked the question and found most of the "pro" buckets came with on board batteries. As Scot pointed out, during that era I think is when the MFG's were fudging HP ratings and trying to get different call out "model" numbers to set them apart from other brands. I would bet if you snapped a picture of the inside of your tractor housing, one of us will have the same innards to get you started on a similar model for parts. As Kiss pointed out though, every once in awhile the JD dealer has the best price on certain parts (if they have it). I ended up running many parts numbers from the JD parts website and googling them to find real dimensions and found many of the bushings/bearings, springs and such at the local hardware. I did the same with my '79 Ariens project blower. I'll even bet you have the standard 3003 friction wheel that crosses to Snapper and some Simplicity models.

jtclays,

Thanks for the info. I won't be home until next Monday but I will post a pic of the inside of the tractor housing then.

I agree on the JD pricing from the dealer as I have found some parts are priced competitive but others are shown as NLA or priced extremely high when compared to the same part from others.
