Welcome to the forum Mary Lyn, it's great to have Ariens represented!

I am new to the forum but not new to Ariens products, my grandfather was a life long Ariens lawn products user, so I have been as well. I also love the Ariens snowblowers, I have a 1983 ST724 that I have had for about 10 years, and just yesterday I purchased a brand new 2014 Deluxe 28+ (darn pretty machine and looks like a brute!). I'm looking forward to our first snowfall so I can see what she can do.

Thanks again and welcome,

Justin

Ray - LOL - Thanks for the welcome and the warranty comment. Our machines are built to last . Is that the picture of your '62 snow blower on your profile? Is it still running?

Justin -

Congratulations on your new Ariens Deluxe 28+. Great choice! That is so cool that your grandfather was also a life-long Ariens user. We love to hear stories like that as we know we have an astounded customer, which is our goal.

I can't wait to see some pictures of the Deluxe 28 in action if you have a chance when the snow falls . . .

Yes, that's my '62 snowblower pride and joy, lol. And yes, it runs like a top with the original 6 hp Tecumseh on there, no modifications and it still throws snow 25-30 feet in the right conditions. I also have a '79 Rocket tiller that is my summertime Ariens toy. I picked up that dealer sign in the background from Ebay a few years ago.

Welcome aboard Mary Lyn!
I'm a long time Gravely walk behind user, my newest is an '83, oldest is a '63. I replaced my old box store snow blower this year with a deluxe 30 and recently picked up a '66 repowered Ariens blower for my daughter.
I for one can say my dealings with the Ariens company have been very positive, even my nutty requests.
Thanks for the support and fine customer service.

Hay Mary Lyn. Nice to have someone from Ariens chime in.

Just thought I would share these two video's I did. Feel free to pass them on to others in the Ariens organization.

Some how I will need to get you photo's of my father Ariens Arrow from back in the late 60's as well as the Manorway he also had. Kinda neat to see the history I feel.

Welcome to the forum from a longtime Ariens customer but a forum newbie. I just purchased a new Platinum 24 SHO last month, with a sno-cab. Unfortunately I find the dash mounted light to be a huge detriment inside the cab as the light not only shines directly in my eyes from the dash, but it reflects off the inside of the cab and back into my eyes even worse. I have disconnected the light. I am thinking of adding another external light mounted in front of the engine outside the cab, possibly an LED light.

My question is: What are the specs of the electric circuit that runs the light and hand warmers ? Is this a 60W AC system with 20W AC for the light and 30W AC for the hand warmers or is it a DC circuit with 20W DC for the light and 30W DC for the hand warmers? If I add another light, I will simply run the add-on light, and leave the stock light out of the circuit. Thanks in advance, and any help is greatly appreciated!
lebenfitti - I reached out to our Tech Service group, and they said there is only one charge circuit. It is a 60 Watt system that the headlight and hand warmers share.

They have heard of issues with the light reflecting back against the plastic window, and they said unplugging it is OK if you are working during the day and don't need the light. If you decide to add a remote light, they recommend using a 20 watt bulb.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
