Ariens 2014 platinum 30 AX369

Anyone use one of these. Is 700.00 a fair price for a used one? I'm worried it'll be too much blower for my needs. I've got a 3 car garage/driveway on a corner lot that has a sidewalk I'll be clearing as well.

If the machine was built in 2013/14 it is a 2014 model, my SHO version was built in 2014/15 so is a 2015 model. I don't know how much they are worth used. I am 72 and have no trouble manoeuvring my machine where the auto turn and plastic skids make turning a breeze. The controls are quick and easy to use. I like the heavier weight on the bucket. The gas tank is small for me, but should be fine for your smaller area. The fill cap is a pain so some remove the strainer in the neck which makes the cap much easier to use. I think you would have lots of power and the 30" bucket works great. Sounds like a good fit to your area. I have hand warmers and they are great.

Good luck.

Okay, that is a good point. Thanks again for the generous help & support. I've found in a short period of time that this is one of the best forums out there.
