great on hilly sidewalks
Clears to the Pavement
Throws Far
Best Uses
Bought this for use in hilly urban neighbord where my house is on a corner double lot with a few hundred feet of sidewalk. As garages are a premium, the streets must be cleared for parking. So far two significant snow events in past month. This handled very heavy slushy snow with ease and flung this over hedges without a problem. Controls very easy to maneuver. What took two hours to shovel, now done in 25 minutes. Traction excellent and compact size plus for standard city sidewalk.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Works great.
Sturdy Metal Chute
Throws Far
Best Uses
My driveway here in Wisconsin is about 16x80. Clears away fairly deep snowfalls in roughly a half hour. Headlight is great as I often have to get out at 4:30 am.<br /><br />At this price at can't think of anything negative. It's built a lot sturdier than the 24 snowblowers at the entry level. There were some decent ones that I could have paid $600.00 for, but I decided to fork over an extra $200.00 for the obvious upgrade and I'm not disappointed.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I hope you get one that is trouble free
Starts Easy Blows A Coup
Best Uses
Starts well works ok in a couple of inches of snow. When I attempt to tackle the plowed portion at the end of my driveway, it misfires, almost stalls, hardly blows any snow and black smoke pours out the exhaust. Ariens, after building 3 million of these, are clueless as to what the problem could be and want me to be the sucker that has to bring it back and forth to the repair center, at a cost of $75 each time untill they throw enough part at it to fix the problem. The repair dealer has never seen this problem in 20 Years of repairing Ariens snowblowers. Ariens service sucks
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
