The information on this website introduces an innovative, walk behind product for which there is a ready market.
Looks very similar to the Troy-built flex.

That’s pretty neat.

Troybilt has a similar FLEX system.

Ariens tried it for most of the 70's, then gave up on it nearly 40 years ago..
People dont want it..I believe its due to basic lazyness. most people would prefer to pay more for two complete machines, (a complete mower and a complete snowbower) (or pay less for two cheap complete units) rather than do the "work" of switching attachments with one of these systems..(how easy it might actually be is irrelevant! No matter how easy it is to switch attachments, it will always be harder than not switching at all..)

It is a nice option to have, but my sno thro does enough work during the winter. She gets a long... rest through the warm months.

I’d rather have deticated quality machines, then a mix and match setup of mediocre attachments.

I do love my stihl kombi setup, though everything is professional grade.

Not to mention Blower has no air filter for a reason and Mower does for the same reasons, AND if the engine wears your out ALL machines not just one.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.

Admittedly... I have had the mower attachment hooked up to my Ariens 10000 series for two years now, and because I have other snowblowers to use, it has become a full-time lawnmower. An air filter has been installed and the chute crank was yanked out.

Prior to the conversion, I had never owned a self-propelled mower, let alone one with a 28-inch deck. It's going to stay as a lawnmower forever!
