Got my Ariens, ready for winter!

Picked up my Ariens Platinum SHO 24" AX369 a few weeks ago. Thanks to this forum and all the online research i did, i knew exactly what snowblower i wanted before going to my local power equipment store.

I'm looking forward to putting this beast to the test. Let's see what this winter brings, compared to last year! I'm prepared this time around. Here are a few pics of the orange beast...

That baby is beautiful.. I have the same engine on my 2015 Platinum 30 and it is unstoppable. I can only imagine what it will do with a 24" bucket.

I much prefer the hand warmer switch on this years model to last years....

I'm actually working with Ariens' customer support on seeing if I can order that switch. Mine didn't come with the warmers standard and I don't like the switch from the add on kit or how it was installed by the dealer.

Wow... that looks completely hoky.

Plus the switch isn't weatherproof so eventually water will get inside and ruin it.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
