Comment:
Bought the unit locally in Nov. 2012, a day before the first snowfall. Was and am pleased with this Ariens, as it has cleared some really deep, 34 snowfalls. I have a 95' driveway, a large side 20'x15'<br />parking area, and a short 24 wide sidewalk. It has cleared all with relative ease, including slush and plow banks. I'm not a strong person, and find I have to wrestle with it sometimes, but I always win. The Clutch Cable wire came undone once from vibration. Had to reattach and adjust, so I'm wary of that. Otherwise, I'm pleased with my purchase!

Comment:
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.
