Re: question on the internals of a snowblower

How do you know if a snowblower uses plastic bushings or brass bushings etc?I looked at the parts diagram and it just says bushing.

If the snowblower was made in the last year or two chances are they're plastic.

Also what makes a snowblower better as far as the internals of the machine?


A ten year old machine will be more solid than a one year old machine.
This does not mean that it will throw snow further, though.

On my Ariens there's just two bolts keeping the front attached to the rear.† Should be somewhere
on either side of the drive box near the top.

I think there is only one person on this forum who has a Ariens tracked model.† Can't seem to recall his name.† Maybe you should start a thread to get his feedback on it.

If I can find out or remember who that is, I'll let you know.

I've believe that would be coldfingers.

The 9526DLET is the only machine that hasn't had any complaints this year.

So whatís your point?The 9526 is wicked dangerous.How does it throw compared to Ö related to the ongoing discussion?

And what are you so uptight about ?

I asked if you'd tried a recent Ariens because first, I don't think you have, and second because they throw a lot
better than they used to.† So if someone today says it'll outthrow a (smaller, older ?)† Honda I wouldn't be surprised.††
Personally I wouldn't want an Ariens (pro) to throw further than it does.† I have no reason to send my snow into the
yard of the guy across the street, but I could with my new Ariens.

1/throws far better than the Honda ever did

†† Thatís just not possible unless the Honda was broken.The Honda easily beats an Ariens of similar horsepower or higher easily.That comes from using newer Ariens machines in the same conditions against a 15 or so year old Honda 8hp track.

Have you tried a 2008† 9526DLE or similar† ?† If it threw further it would be dangerous.
I also have a 1999 Ariens pro and there's a big difference.
