I purchased a used Ariens Professional 28 (Model #926038) last winter. It's my first Ariens after running the past decade with Bolens blowers. It was a light winter but she preformed pretty well. I was putting her away for the summer and the swing plate snapped (see pics). Anyone ever seen this before? I don't think the poor girl has ever been maintained. Shes getting a new swing plate, a new friction disc, new drive shaft bearings, new bushings, new shoes and skids, a new impeller bearing, and new paint on all the rust spots. I should have just bought a new one, LOL.
