Yes, I knew that going into the purchase. My 13 year old Arien 724, was a rock w/no hassle at all. For me, the benefits outway the small negatives to get EFI and Hydrostatic. Others I'm sure will disagree.

I think I'll have to start reading some solar and battery forums. I'll report back if I find a solution.

If the connector was identified, you could also make/buy your own 7.2V pack, with good cells. Giving you a spare, that you could keep charged, in case of a battery "emergency".

The OEM's are $28.69 on Ariens, so not a deal breaker. From a prior post, someone said the battery made it way thru the season after the initial charge so it's probably not a terrible one.

I can't deny wanting to run a machine that is that high up the food chain for an extended period of time. While it's not for me, I hope it ends up working well for you! Maybe some videos in the future of this monster tossing some white stuff?

Wake me up when the snow's done...

It was quite a debate (with myself ) on which to get. In the end, the factors were:
  • I'm not getting younger, the back problems are getting worse
  • Snow is getting heavier (see first bullet point as to why)
  • I have a driveway, where on 50% of it I don't have open space on the sides to throw snow, so for years w/my 724, it was a multiple step process to throw it 10-20 ft, then throw it again to the back of the driveway. Hopefully can do it all in one shot now. 60ft!! at least what is advertised.
  • I didn't want to have any regrets when I got the first heavy snow at the end of the driveway, and the machine I have can't get through it. I would be saying, I should have gotten the Pro. Now, if I can't get through it, I have no other option then getting a snow plow
  • I have about 10 years before I can even think about moving to somewhere w/less snow (I'm in NJ) so as long as this runs well, it will be $ well spent.

It wont throw 60 feet without and impeller kit and the motor turn 3650 rpm or better
more like 50 feet with the perfect snow
55 to 60 feet with the impeller kit and motor adjusted for rpms
with impeller kit everything will go 45 feet or better
