Ariens ST824 - First Blower?

Hey Guys,

Still hunting for my first used snowblower and came across, what looks to be, a nice Ariens ST824.

They were asking for $425 and I came in at $300. They countered with $350.

It is a 924082, Serial #043120.

Only used a handful of times before moving to Florida. Both recoil and electric start are functioning.

Is this worth it for $350? Easy to maintain and learn about engines?

Thanks for any input!

these are great blowers and it looks in great shape. just FYI the blower is from the 1980's so used a handful of times seems like BS lol


if you can get if for around $300 that seems like a fair deal.

According to Scott's site, the 924082 were made from '94 - '96. If the machine really is as clean as it looks that pic I'd have no problem paying $350 for it.

In my opinion, that blower looks well taken care of. If indeed that runs fine, and works properly, I would say 350.00 is certainly a fair price.

the 082 is slightly different from the 050 but much newer.....that blower is a lifetime machine....keep up with maintenance and it will treat you well and handle anything mother nature throws at you.

No matter how many times it was used it appears to be in great shape for $350 and it should outlast you Clearly a win win for you. I'd be on my way there to get it . . . now!

What caught my eye was the muffler. Then how little, if any rust I can see, the tires, ... I'd love to see the inside of the bucket and the chute. Maybe this really was a garage queen that didn't see much use.

The 924082 would have been sold in the mid 90s, actually, and has quite a few things going for it:

Locking diff
ball bearings instead of bushings for the axles
tall chute
snow hog tires

(there's also a knockoff plate on the control panel if you're interested in adding an optional headlight, and the engine has the headlight plug)

Assuming that the axle bearings and friction wheel are in good shape, $350 is not a bad price.

i thought they were late 80s' well its 25 years old instead of 30 . the way the OP was talking it appears he thought it was much newer.
