Hi...we recently moved to northern Michigan and I need a snow blower! I have never owned or needed a snow blower but I am told it is a necessity here. After much research, I am interested in a used Ariens 24 inch or something similar if anyone has one to sell in the area. I don't tinker so one that works would be nice! :)

Thanks for looking!

Welcome to the forums! Can you be more specific about your needs? Driveway size, sidewalks, etc.

Welcome to the forum Michael,

Its better to buy a new unit with a warranty so keep that in mind.
Deep snows require snow blower with large horsepower so that it can provide a longer casting distance.

Is a new toro out of the question?

Buying a new Yamaha 824 should be looked at as the exchange rate for a purchase is heavily on the US side and you can have the sales tax and VAT refunded at the border crossing station before you enter the United States.

24" ariens would be a good choice. How big an area are you doing, what kind of surface ??
You may not tinker but don't forget to pick up some spare shear pins for the machine once you get one. The go in the front auger and should you accidently suck in something hard that won't make it through the auger or impeller the bolt is soft and breaks before doing damage to your machine. It's always nice to have a few spares on hand.

I agree the Ariens 24" is a good choice. Might as well get the good 'ol Platinum 24" SHO. :smile2:
