Hello

Hi everyone I live in the California Sierra Nevada's and have been shoveling for a few years. Finally decided after this hard winter it was time for a blower. After septic issues with the house it was out of the question until I found this gem on the side of the road yesterday. I have a background in auto repair and hope to tackle this project over the summer. I think forums are awesome and truly appreciate those of you who take the time to share their knowledge to help others. Cheers 🍻

Welcome to the forum. You should have no trouble finding people who can give you advise on Ariens machines.

Things are kind of quiet at this time of year however, so take a look through your machine, take some photos to post of questionable/problem areas, and ask your questions. Somebody will see then and respond, just might take some time.

Noticed on your other post that did include some photos, that there is an issue with the transmission. Right off the bat, I would suggest you eyeball the rubber friction disk for wear, the big aluminum disk that drive the rubber friction disk for wear, or grease or oil ( needs to be dead clean) and shaft bearings for all the shafts to see if any have gone wonky allowing the axles to have lateral play which reduces the contact pressure between rubber disk and aluminum drive plate.

That should get you a bit familiar with how the machine is put together and gives you LOTS of time to get any parts needed before snow happens again.

Work fascinates me.

if you had a Honda I would come visit and help you with it. We live about 15 minutes from Lake Tahoe . Our Honda dealer sells Ariens and they are the #2 machine around here. They actually seem more sturdy than the Honda's from what I have seen so it's well worth it for you refurbish yours.

good luck.

Just found your other post and disregard request for Snowblower numbers......H60 and 10000 series good machines.

Might want to upgrade motor like Cranman suggested if motor is weak.
