Lightbulb Hand grip issue somewhat solved...

For me at least.

The cheap, VERY slick hand 'grips' on my Deluxe have always been annoying and cause me to work harder than needed. Don't feel like doing heated grips and basically being lazy found another method; hockey stick tape.

Probably already been offered but just passing it along. Was going to replace the grips but was attempting to not spend money on it. Found a roll of hockey tape in a drawer, wrapped the grips a couple of times and so far, so good.

Not perfect but FAR better, the machine isn't coming out of my hands now.

For the price of these things, they should invest in real grips.

Hope this helps someone!

2014 Ariens 921032 (Deluxe 30")
291cc
Anti-Auger Lock Mod applied
DOT reflective tape
ArmorSkids (soon)
Upgraded grips (soon)

Eventually.....LED fog light.
