  1. Ariens Snowblowers
    Hello, I am looking at buying a new snowblower to replace my 25 year old MTD. The 2 I am looking at are the Craftsman 26-in 243 CC ( https://www.lowes.ca/product/gas-snow-blowers/craftsman-26-in-243-cc-2-stage-snow-blower-3746127) or a Ariens Deluxe 24-in. I know that most people recommend...

    I have recently purchased the Compact 24 for my daughter and have found that 1st gear still seems way too fast for certain conditions. Without having a throttle option (which I would have likely tried first) I did follow the book instructions and adjusted the speed selector arm to the closest...

    Hello everyone - I have a 1970 Ariens snowblower that was my father's. It has been maintained and used each season up until a few years ago when he upgraded to a newer machine. When starting it this summer, the engine started to run really strong, too strong. It would get louder and louder...

    Can anyone tell me where this cable is suppose to go to? It appears I’m missing a part that this would set into. The chute rotates very easily so I am guessing this is suppose to help with that?

    Hi everyone, thanks for having me. Last night I followed a FB marketplace listing to buy a Toro 3521 with a 'newer motor' that has auger issues (no biggy). While I'm there the guy asks if I fix snowblowers. Honestly, I'm no pro but I am mechanically inclined. Probably more so than most. He...

    Hey Folks, I'm new here having just purchased a Deluxe 24 for the coming season. After reading through the manual I pondered the scraper adjustment and requisite shims required to do so. I have a yard stick for the 3mm 1/8" adjustment but not for the 22mm 7/8" adjustment. So I designed and 3D...
