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.

starts easy and runs,

Assembled, checked oil, put gas in it, and started with one pull. winter and blowing snow is yet to come.

Thank you for your review, Siegfried. We're happy you chose us again for your power equipment needs. We certainly appreciate your return business! I'm glad you like your blower as well!

Fell apart

When I received the product it wouldn't move forward or reverse and had to clean the drive mech twice to get it to work. With only about 4 hours of use the impeller and drive pulleys fell off the engine and had to bring it in to the dealer to be fixed. It works pretty good now but it wasn't an impressive start to my experience. Motown did provide me a new belt and friction puck in case the ones that were dirty originally were contaminated.

Great customer service!!

I'm very impressed and pleased with customer service getting my machine delivered after an initial mistake. I can't review the machine since it hasn't snowed yet.
