Raul Escobar: Ariens is the best. The chute and impeller is all metal. Ice and rocks won't hurt it. I've seen them last forever with heavy use throwing all sorts of ice and gravel
dave piercy: ariens is the best
TopSun: I want one! (need some snow too though)
Agus Siregar: peoples love this product and give positif reviews, check here goo.gl\M7fVkN
......I bought this blower just in time for the Chicago blizzard. We're both amazed at how it handled the high snow with out any problem. I love it! I am very short and petite and I am so happy that I could even handle this beast with ease. Glad i bought this it really is a great product :)......
ilikejor ed: i feel sorry for ur neighbers lmfao
hazzard1111111111111: I make these ariens snowblowers in brillion wi
tpetty34: Thanks for the video !!! I just bought a 2008 Ariens 5524 that starts first pull. It's summer so haven't been able to really test it. I have three single drives which was way too much for my old single stage.
2krisz: HAHAHAHA what the hell is that machine ???????
kctyphoon: Reasons i say that - it cost me $800 to buy a 20 year old yamaha thrower, and both honda's and yamaha's 6 hp models, match or exceed almost every other 10 -12 hp throwers. Not saying yours isn't nice, but there is a reason some makes/models cost a few grand.
kctyphoon: For the record, im sure this is a great thrower, but making the claim "it's better than a honda" is a bit of a stretch
BarbershopHarmony: I have a 205cc that is rated at 5.5 to 6.5 HP, so the 11HP might be around the 400cc mark, give or take 50cc...
msoltysiakk: I just bought an Ariens Deluxe snowblower and I bloody love it! I live in southern Ontario where snow really hits us. This beast is amazing. I have another snowblower at one of my apartments that's a Yardman (33" width, 13 HP; made in Canada) that I thought was strong, but this one (28", 240 cc - do not know HP) does an equal -- if not better -- job. Awesome. Made in USA. Never buy a snowblower from China!!
deziking: Damn I want one. How much did you pay for this? Looks easy and efficient.
Todd Copper: Sounds like you have one powerful machine, maybe a 340cc, I think this is what I'm looking for or maybe even the 420cc. No replacement for displacement !
These are estimates for cc to hp conversion, obviously there are varying factors involved.
179 cc = 5 hp
205 cc = 8 to 9 Gross Torque = 5.5 to 6.5 hp
250 cc = 11 to 11.5 Gross Torque = 7 to 8 hp
305 cc = 13.5 to 14.5 Gross Torque = 9 to 10 hp
342 cc = 15.5 to 16.5 Gross Torque = 11 to 12 hp
389 to 420cc = 18 ft lbs = 13 to 15 hp
HondaMan716: I have the 2010 Ariens Deluxe 30 and a Honda Single Stage HS520A. C0Y0TE5 is right that a single stage is sufficient for lesser snowfalls. The Honda will go as fast as I push it when the snowfalls are 8 inches or less so even though it is 20 inches wide compared to the Ariens 30" wide I can go much faster and finish the driveway quicker than running the Ariens in 6th gear. Don't get me wrong. I love my Ariens with its Subaru motor when the snow is deeper.
doublewide6: I don't know the CC's, older snowblowers were rated by HP this one is 11.5HP. It does well with wet snow it does not clog. If it gets really wet the friction disk belt will slip and the drive wheels will not turn.
Todd Copper: Nice vid. Double how many cc is this? How is it in wet/heavy snow where the street plow leaves a 2-3 feet of wet/heavy snow? I'm looking for a snowblower that can handle 2-3 feet of wet/heavy snow at the end of the driveway.
David Bond: the more power the better the you always have it when you need it
Holsteri: sucks machine
Billy Toilembocker: Da freak outta here!
I'd rather use a plow shovel than a single stage. Useless garbage, would never be able to handle the wet compacted heavy snow I am accustomed to. Doesn't matter if is is 2" high, the single stage is worthless with heavy snow.
