2013 Ariens ST24 LE Deluxe

As I mentioned in the new members section, this is my first snowblower. I would like to start a "friends list" of other new blower owners, particularly this make and model, to be able compare notes with during the season.

If you are from Northern New England, so much the better, but obviously, happy to have any newbie's thoughts as we start down this new road together!

Any interest?

Thank You!

Gary

If my P24 is close enough to your D24 Gary, I'm in. I'm from Saskatchewan, Canada so I might not be able to make it for any club field trips but prior to my new Ariens I moved all of my snow with a series of nice shiny shovels of various and questionable lineage.

Cheers
Larry

Larry,

Thanks for reply, close enough for me! Just trying to get to know some like minded folk on here and narrow it down a bit to similar units.

Sure we will chat further soon...have a great day!

Gary,

Welcome and congrats on the new Machine! I am in Southern NH but I don't think we will be able to compare my Pro28 with your Dlx24

Hello, I have been looking at new blowers, I had an MTD for over 10 years, nothing but grief, so decided to go for one of the better ones. After much research, Ariens sure seems to be the machine of choice....it certainly is in the top 2. I was set to pull the trigger on the Platinum 24, however delivery is impossible to late Jan 2014....at least that's what Ariens has said to me. I have not given up yet as I really like the extra power in the Platinum versus the Deluxe. That said I know a few dealers in my area that have the 24 deluxe in stock, would u be able to give a short brief on how your new deluxe 24 unit works in regards to power, pin lock control etc. Thanks

Thanks Steve... I hope all that means is that I have less driveway than you do so I can be inside quicker !

Hi there, Interestingly I have not had the chance to use the machine at all..... had it delivered and in the garage it sits.....

I am at the Southern tip of Lake Winnipesaukee and we just have not had any snow (other than today).

I am sure that the guys with the larger more fancy machines will tell you they are worth it and probably for what they need them for, they are. For me, I just needed a competent snow blower and this seems to be a perfect combination of size, power and price.....

Good luck with your decision !
