Ariens Single Stage Snow
many different models of snow blowers available from Ariens, it is important to
find the model that is right for you. Choosing the right snow blower is crucial
to completing the job with minimal effort. There are a variety of things to
consider when purchasing a new snow blower: clearing width, throwing distance,
maneuverability, and your average annual snowfall for your area. The smaller
single stage Path Pro snow blowers are good units for your small to medium
sized driveways. There are about three different types of single stage Path Pro
snow throwers from Ariens.
first ones to choose from are the recoil start only models. The Ariens “938030
SS21 136R” and the “938031 SS21 208R”. These models are great for someone that does
not need electric start or is looking for less weight. The commercial sector
such as plow companies favor a non electric start model for reducing weight
when transporting in their plow vehicles.
Second models are the electric start models. The Ariens “938031 SS21 136E” and
the “938032 SS21 208E”. These models come standard with the easy to use electric
starter. Simply by plugging in a short heavy duty extension cord the starter is
live and ready. Once you press the starter button after following the starting
procedures, it fires right up and then you unplug the extension cord and head
out for business.
last model has the remote deflector chute. The Ariens “938033 SS21 208EC”. This
remote chute feature allows you to control the left and right movement of the
deflector chute. This is especially important when dealing with shifting wind
conditions. This model is also electric start equipped.
looking at the 136 or 208 numbers in the Ariens model lineup, it stands for “136cc
and 7 foot pounds of torque” or “208cc and 9.5 foot pounds of torque”. Ariens is using the Ariens AX engines manufactured
by the LCT company. The letter abbreviations correspond for the following: R=recoil start,
E=electric start and C=remote chute control.
Ariens Path Pro snow blower models have a throwing distance of up to 35 feet
pending the condition of the snow. Also the larger the engine the more torque
it will have for the heavier snow falls. Be sure to look at each model as they
all have different individual features. Remember the Ariens snow blowers carry
a 3 year consumer warranty and they are outfitted with quality Ariens AX
engines by LCT company. If you have any questions please feel free to email or
