Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO (28") 306cc Two-Stage Snow Blower

  • Ariens AX306 Engine: Built to perform in cold temperatures up to 2 hours. Plus, it's equipped with a 120V electric start with recoil backup starting system.
  • Super High-Output Impeller (SHO): A faster spinning impeller as a result of modified belts and pulleys allows you to clear snow faster and throw snow farther.
  • Auto-Turn Steering: Automatically senses change in in direction as you turn. Power is then adjusted to the inside wheel, making turning much easier.
  • Molded Friction Disk: Fewer overall parts, easier to service, and more robust shifting.
  • Re-balanced Machine: The axle has been relocated on the frame to improve balance and performance of the Auto-Turn steering feature.
  • Disc-O-Matic Drive System: Smoothly shifts into 6 forward speeds or two reverse speeds.
  • Cast Iron Gear Case: Durable in extreme conditions, delivering ideal power to the auger system to churn and throw snow.
  • In-Dash Remote Chute/Deflector Control: Rotate the chute 200 degrees and adjust the discharge angle, both from the operator's position.
  • Interlocking Controls: Allows the ability to lock both handles, so one hand can be free to adjust chute rotation as you move.
  • 16" Snow Tread Tires: 16" x 4.8" directional snow tread tires provide necessary grip on hard packed snow.
  • Warranty: 3 year residential warranty, 90 day commercial warranty.

This is one awesome machine, and the purchase from
Mowtown Waldo Implement couldn't have been easier or better. The price was the best I found and it arrived earlier then expected in perfect condition. This snow blower has exceeded my expectations, which were really high after all the research I did, it has handled it all. Uneven terrain around the chicken coop, snow pile off the roof or from the plow, deep wet snow, it ate them all and threw it out of the area. Highly recommend this for the money.
