Re: greasing auger shaft assembly: how much and how often?

Perhaps I misread the manual.  I will check again on the recommended grease.  Either way, it is good to know that snowmobile grease is an option.  Thanks again.

Thanks for the advice!  The manual recommends Ariens Hi-Temp Grease, but I definitely will look into snowmobile grease as well.

greasing auger shaft assembly: how much and how often?
#3   Nov 18, 2009 8:25 am
I learned from the Ariens independent retailer that I should use a grease gun to lubricate the auger shaft assembly through the zerk fittings. How often do I need to do this? How much grease do I need to put in and how will I know when I have put in enough? I don't want to put in too much.

My apologies for these newbie questions. Thanks in advance for your advice.

All things being equal, inc. price, get it at the independent Ariens retailer (assuming they have a good rep., etc.).

These things are what, roughly 200 lb. beasts. If you're in good shape, & have garage space, shouldn't be a problem. But, how big is your driveway, exactly?

I will be clearing two small diveways.  One is no more than 15' x 25', and the other one is maybe half that size.  Both are flat, paved, and rectangular.  I initially thought that I would buy a small snowblower since it would be easier to move around.  But people have been advising me to choose the 250cc B&S so that clearing the compacted snow at the end of the driveway would be easier.  The next step up on the Ariens would be same engine but with the remote wheel lock.  I am not convinced that it would make that much of a difference with my two driveways.

I know nothing about the unit, but that website you provided has a link to the owner's manual.

I noticed that has a Powerland snowblower as well.  $550 includes delivery and costo's generous return policy.  However, the picture they posted may not be the actual unit since it shows a metal chute rather than black plastic.
