Red face Sticker rant

Ok so this is late night nic picking but I have two Ariens machines 927 & deluxe 28 and both have the bottom ID Tags serial# crooked on the tractor. Ariens makes great snowblowers & I have a few of them but really?? All that goes into assembling them, paint ,engine, controls, ect...
and some dude just slaps the serial # tag on any old way! There you go boys...box em up & ship em out//
Bet you'd be impressed to find you new bmw or chevy emblem crooked.lol

Might be a Monday machine. I'd keep a close eye on that one.

In all honesty, that would bother me also.

Heh... when I saw the title of this topic I thought it was something else.

The Ariens I'm restoring needs the sticker that goes on the differential lock. I priced one up on Jack's small engines' site and they want almost $17.00 for that crazy thing!

C'mon Ariens... that sticker probably cost you less than $1.00, considering how many thousands of them were made.

~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.

I couldnt find that listed on Jacks site..
I dont believe Ariens has any decals available directly from them..perhaps for newer models, but not for 1960's or 70's models..

this company makes reproduction decals:

Reproduction Lawn Mower Decals - Ariens - Vintage Reproductions

They have them!

But the site you linked has WAY better prices and I like the look of the stickers better too. Call me an old fart, but I like words better than cryptic graphics.

I'm goofy but you guys are way beyond me.

I consider myself quite particular and anal. If I was putting that sticker on, it would definitely be straight. But that sticker, where it is and the information that it has on it, would not bother me one bit.

If it were a crooked sticker on the dash or engine controls, then it might bother me a bit depending on the situation.

To me the issue would not the the sticker itself since as you say it has pretty much no importance functionally.

But it could be an indicator of the work ethic of the people who made the machine. If they're willing to let something like that go, are all the bolts torqued correctly? If a part didn't fit quite right, was it dealt with properly or did they force it? If there was a defect in the finish or plating that could allow rust to form prematurely, was it fixed or rejected? Those things *do* matter.
