Ariens

Looking at an Ariens ST926 Pro some guy has for sale locally. Looks very clean in the photos. Says it's been garaged, not sure what year. Can anyone give me an idea on a fair price to offer? I think he wants $850/$900.

You'd have to attach a pic or get the actual Ariens model number to offer a real opinion. It would be something like 924124 or 926008. 926 Pro could be as new as 2011 or as old as 2004, big difference in value. Condition counts too.
Model number wouldn't be what's on the dashboard. It'll be a little Ariens sticker on the tractor body near the wheels, FYI.

Here are all the 926's I have listed:

Model 924124 - ST926DLE (pro series) (listed in the 2004 manual, one of the last 924000 series models.)

Model 924335 - ST926DLE (pro series) (listed in the 2004 manual, one of the last 924000 series models.)


Model 926001
926LE Deluxe
26"
9.25hp Tecumseh L-Head Snow-King
year: 2005-2006
(not a Pro series)


Model 926004
926DLE Professional
26"
9.25hp Tecumseh OHV Snow-King
year: 2005



Model 926007
926LE
26"
9.5hp Briggs "Power Built" OHV
year: 2005
(not a Pro series)

Model 926008
926DLE Professional
26"
9.5hp Briggs "Power Built" OHV
year: 2005


So that's six different models that are 926 (9hp with 26" bucket)
(not to be confused the "926000 series")
as JT said, you really need the model number to know exactly what you are looking at..

Are you on the East coast? Seems pretty high unless it's a garage queen.
George W. Bush was starting his second term Jan. of 2005 when they were originally on the showroom floor.
$850 is pretty close to a new Ariens Deluxe with warranty.
You can get a Toro 724 OE for $799 or the 826 OE for $899 with warranty, just FYI.

Thank you! Yes, East Coast. It was definitely garaged as its real clean. Ok, but is a new Ariens dlx the same quality? Cast iron, etc? This has the hand warmers, etc.

All the new Ariens have the cast iron auger gear case with steel gears. Not trying to talk you out of it if you like it. Just considering other options. I'm a huge Ariens fan, but personally think the Toro 724 OE is the sleeper deal currently available. My neighbor has the 826 and it throws snow like crazy and their quick stick is slick as can be. On that Ariens model and many Pro models they had an onboard battery which makes it pretty cool, IMO. Better to get what you want and like than regret a "good deal" purchase. Off season as it really still is, maybe offer a little less and see where the guy is. Good luck.
