Here is a link for the owners manual. You will need the model and serial numbers off the tag.
Ariens Owner Manuals

The cord for the electric start just looks like a normal indoor/outdoor extension cord.

Yours might be a 2 stroke so if it is make sure you mix the oil and the gas properly. If not then make sure it has oil in the engine.

It should start the same way as a lawnmower, prime it, choke it, make sure the key is on and give it a pull.

The manual should give you anything specific to that model. Make sure to check the belts too.

Cat,
"520" isnt really enough to go on..
all that means is "5 horsepower engine, and 20-inch bucket width"
Ariens has been making 520's since the 1970's..

Take a look at the back of the machine, you should find a tag that has an actual model number on it..its probably a 932xxx series machine, or a 939xxx series..see if you can find that model number, and we can then probably find you your exact owners manual! :)

Thanks for the model number!
Model 939001 was made in 2006, the first model in the new 939000 "compact" series...
(actually it was probably made in the summer of 2005, and went on sale in the Autumn of 2005, as a 2006 model year snowblower.)
