I can't remember the name of the company but there's a dealer in Harvard you might like.  I think it's on Route 110.   They seem like a good group.  There's a Husqvarna dealer on the same road.  I've been there a couple times and didn't care for the sales rep's attitude.

Sounds like you've done a lot of research and may be onto to something.  I'd love to see the statistics you've collected showing the distribution of problems by type, (setup, normal wear, maintanence, infancy failure, design failures etc).  We might be able to prove one way or another whether or not Ariens is as good as it's reputation by comparing your research data against your data for other machines owned by members of this site.  At the moment the only statistic I have is I am happy with mine but if you can prove I'm wrong I'll consider selling it and getting the best snowblower I can afford.

I wouldn't worry about it.  I imagine that out of all the thousands of srpings they make a few are going to be bad.

yeah, gotta love the pro...  even the cast iron gearbox looks manly, and the differential - that just oozes testosterone.

OK.  Kind of strange reasons to buy a snowblower but who am I to judge?  Are your sure about the testosterone?  I checked the manual and didn't see any lubricant specification for the differential.

When deciding between the 926LE and 926LE Pro try to frame it as a long term buy.  5 years from now you'll have forgoten the difference in price but will still appreciate the extra features.
