Bought a Ariens profesional series Snowblower in Late 2003. This is a BIG machine( Nickname Orange Crush) , High Hoarsepower, Battery start,and moves snow FAST.12" of heavy snow wasnt even a challange. pro series has the Automotive differential, whch acts like a limited slip. Havnt needed to lock it yet. 100% reliable after 15 months so far.
