Ariens first one

Last week the wife and I went away for several days and stopped at Wenatchee Wash. I seen my first Ariens snowblower, Platinum 30, I was very pleased with what I seen. It looked like a well built blower, being from Western Canada I have never seen one kind of wish they sold them where I live.

Are you sure you can't get this at Home Depot or an Ariens Dealer in your area (based on where you are you would have to drive a ways, but Home Depot does ship). I bought my Platinum 30 at Home Depot and I live in Southern Ontario. My Brother just bought a Platinum 24 SHO for an Ariens dealer in Thunderbay.

There is definitely a supply chain in Canada.

Cheers

The closes Home Depot is 2 hrs away, I checked out Penticton and no Ariens dealer so I bought Local here in town, a Toro which I am happy with. A huge improvement over my old blower.

around here two stage machines in general are rare. you'll see them in the stores but it seems most people have a single stage machine. I saw toro two stage machines at my old dealer and a few contractors that I knew. when I bought my house my neighbor across from me had an older ariens with the tear drop bucket, it was the first ariens I had ever seen. there was ( and still is ) an ariens dealer across the street from my old toro dealer but I've never stopped in and checked it out

current machines

2-toro 521E-38052. 1-toro xl824pt 38086
