Re: Ariens 8524 Snowblower - tons of power, but very slow. Suggestions to speed it up?

Looks like the 8.5hp engine on this revs at 3600 rpm +-150 and the 8HP, which appears to be identical, is setup to rev at 3200 RPM. So swapping pulleys, might work. I'll look into that.

I thought of the wheel/tire change, but they are already 15" and I haven't seen any larger.

I have an Ariens 8524 snowblower with a Tecumseh engine. It starts and runs great. Tons of power and can pull your arms off (no slipping). The problem is, itís slow. At forward speed 6, itís about a third slower than my old Ariens 5hp (walking/drive speed). In deep snow its fine, but anything less than 8Ē its painfully slow. I already check the speed lever adjustment and it is maxed at the 6 setting, I even pulled the lower cover and the friction wheel is as far out on the disk as it can go. I bought it used a few years ago and it has always been this way. Iím considering trading it in for something faster. Is it worth buying a tach and checking the RPM? It seems like itís revving plenty high. Any suggestions to speed it up? Mark
