I bought a new Ariens 921046 deluxe 28 on 03/04/2018, and used it for the final snow of the season. It sat idle until the day after Thanksgiving and have used it maybe 6 times now since the snow started falling. About the last 3 times, the drive belt has slid off, and I've had to reapply it. Then today we had about 10" of nice dry powder snow and after about 1/2 hr., it stopped augering. Pulled it back, and tried again, but no go. I checked the adjustment screws, and it all pulled out, parts fell all over the place in the snow, then the drive mechanism quit, so had to push the machine back to my storage area and tear this piece of crap apart to see what failed. So now I have a bag of parts that go where ??? and a machine that won't blow snow when I need it most. If this is what Ariens sells as worthy products, I want another to replace this junk pile.
