Just an observation
Original Message   Feb 1, 2006 11:39 am
I find it interesting that as highly rated as the Ariens blowers seem to be rated, that i see so many posts about them having problems. or breaking down. Ive paid attention for quite some time now & it seems always 30% to 40% of the posts are referencing a problem of some type with the Ariens & it seems to mainly be newer blowers. This brings to mind several questions, first and formost, if they are the quality they're reputation seems to hold, why are there so many problems with them? Is it only a matter of cutting quality to stay in a competitive price range while keeping profits as high as possible, or is it just poor quality control?  Even if this brand is the majority of blowers owned by people, 30+% seems to be an excessive amount of blowers having varied problems.Its understandable that after some years of use, parts wear out and repairs are necessare but since it seems to be mainly newer models with low hours on them having problems, it makes me wonder how much the quality has been reduced over comparable models say 10 years old, & they are relying soley on reputation for sales in todays market?
