Hi from Chicagoland: ST1032

Hey Everyone! I've recently sold my ATV with a plow on it and launched into a hunt for a quality snowblower. My searching lead me to Yamaha (rare around here), Honda (subject to the noted "Honda tax"), and Ariens.I liked them all for different reasons, but ended up with a ST1032.

It seems to be in good shape and has been serviced annually by a dealer and operated by an older woman who got to a point where she felt it was too large and hard to handle for her. It looks to be in good shape for a machine that's probably older than I am.

Her big 10HP Tech started on the first pull and ran great, and everything seems to work. So, $300 bought me into this adventure and I'd love to learn more about her from all of you.

Model: 924084
Serial: 004089

I plan on taking care if her and putting her to work.

Thanks,
Keith

good choice for a serious blower. Heavy and harder to manueuver then a 24 or 28 inch though. I'm doing over a 1032 as we speak. Make sure the auger rakes are free, and grease them good...new shear pins.....adust and lube the tranny and replace the rubber wheel if needed. Adjust the skids and scraper bar ( or replace),touch up rusty spots ( Allis Chalmers orange is my go to), and service engine.....and top off auger gearbox. I'm looking at this one of mine and thinking of replacing the 10 hp with a 420 cc Chinese winter engine I have in the box still looking for a project. The 10 will go instead of the 8 on another Ariens. Any machines I keep always get the impeller kit.
