Re: New Ariens limited edition #1 Feb 12, 2013 6:58 am
So the blizzard here on the east coast left us with 3+ feet of snow. Needless to say the Toro SS 221QE I have, as great a machine it is, just cant cut it. Called my Ariens Dealer Saturday, bought a Deluxe 28 plus over the phone, they delivered it today (Monday). Interesting thing dealer told me is this one doesn't have the 250cc that the 921027 has. This one is the 305cc engine. Dealer said this is a limited run because the 921027 are sold out and Ariens is fulfilling orders for the 921027 with 921034, for the $1099 price point! Anyhoo, thought I would share this interesting bulletin. BTW, the machine is a BEAST! Love it!

Good for you!! There is no substitute for displacement!! Marc
Re: My Ariens 824 doesn't throw far -- what gives? #2 Feb 11, 2013 8:51 am
Same here, my 926 is going on 7 years old. Used to throw across the yard, then it just dribbled out the chute. Belt was slipping. I adjusted the Attachment Belt Idler and it got me through. It's a temp solution, though, until I can get a pro to look at it.
My father has a 2005 926LE that had a factory upgrade designed for it. It seems snow melted and was able to work it's way on to the belts and caused slippage. They designed a deflector that mounted at the juncture of the chute and the bucket which solved the problem. There was also a kit that locked one of the shafts in place so that it wouldn't "egg" shape the hole it rode in. I installed both these after manufacture kits shortly after buying the machine for my father. Probably in 2006 or 2007. I found out about them from a Snowmann post on the net and the other by speaking to the tech help staff at Ariens. They are most helpful!! Marc
Re: standby generator reliability #3 Feb 10, 2013 5:42 am
The generacs that had problems,were they air cooled?ARe the water cooled generacs more reliable?
Mikie-They were all the air cooled model. One belonged to my son's in laws, one to a person i worked with and the other two were a fishing buddy of mine and his neighbor. I am most familiar with my son's in laws situation.The unit has failed on them every time they have lost power in the 3 or 4 years they own it. Marc
Re: Inverter Generator Question #5 Dec 11, 2012 6:47 am
Borat-I can't answer your question but have a meter suggestion for you. if you haven't bought the meter yet try to locate one from a manufacturer named Hobbs. They make them in both ac and dc in different voltages. I bought one and installed it on my Gillette and couldn't be happier. I opened up the panel and tapped into the back of one of the duplex plugs and mounted the meter on the frame using one of their available brackets.Couldn't agree more about the non lcd comment! Marc
