I've had my Ariens snowblower (Sno-Tek) for four years. It worked the first season. Every season after that, it has not worked. Without fail, whenever there's snow on the ground, the Ariens product doesn't work. The engine just won't turn over. I've had to spend hundreds of dollars every season to get it fixed at a local repair shop. Ariens seems totally uninterested in customer service (there isn't even a phone number on their customer service...

Poor quality , the transaxel defect is a problem ariens is well aware of they have no interest in coustomer service after your 24 month warranty .They are selling you junk and they know it! My mower was 4 months out of warranty and the transaxel will not shift. The warranty agent just hangs up on you ! Thanks Ariens and Home Depot for selling products you will not stand behind. Third and last product I will ever buy from Ariens or Home Depot....

As a pervious employee of the Ariens company, I can tell you, I would NEVER buy any product produced by Ariens. There products are built to fail, to ensure that there parts department has a VERY healthy repeating business. Case in point: The lawn mower blade spindles on all riding mower decks, are machined oblong, to cause the bearings to fail in a short period of time (20 to 30 hours). 95% of all there decks have a three blade system (3...

Ariens Lawn Mower Review

#938725
1.0
Poorly designed drivetrain. The blades immediately circulate the grass clippings directly into the belt guard. This forces the mower into permanent go mode. It's like playing tug-o-war the whole time. It takes me more time to clean out the drive belts after each mowing than it does to actually mow. Never again!

I bought an Ariens snow track 24 inch snow blower 5 yrs ago and been nothing but trouble. 1st a wheel fell off and then the clutch brook. And today the blower chain broke!!! The hassle of loading and un loading the blower plus the weeks it take to get fix. Such a PAIN. Im looking to get rid of it and buy something that isn't a Piece of ***.

I purchased a Ariens Compact 22 Model 920013 and after only 2 uses, it wouldn't drive. I had it serviced at my local dealer and they said that there was a recall on a part that engages the drive train. This is year 2 and when I went to use it for our first snow storm, again it wouldn't engage. It is stored in a covered shed and only gets used 2-3 times a year. This is not what I expected when I spent over 800 dollars on what is suppose to be a...

I have the 11528LE for 12 years now and it has been a good machine. I had no problems with it. It has never been to the shop but gets regular maintenance like tightening the belt, changing the oil, greasing the auger, topping up the gearbox and replacing the occasional shear pin when I hit a newspaper. Starts first pull every time (even though it has electric start, I never use it) and blows snow no problem. Last year, one of the seals...

Bought their Path Pro model 938030 snow blower online from Home Depot. All I had to do was get it out of the box and install the chute ring and the manual chute and secure with 3 screws. After the 2nd use, the manual chute was not turning properly. Used it anyway. Took the thing to a Ariens dealer last week. The dealer determined that the chute was improperly installed. Now they are charging me $52. Called Ariens customer service. They...

3 Year old Ariens Lawn Tractor 936060 42" riding lawn mower tractor. So poorly built the seat broke off while was mowing the lawn, I nearly broke my neck. Check out the picture, the seat is mounted to cheap metal that has no reinforcing frame. The metal just ripped off with the seat. I'm 160 lbs could imagine if I was a fat ***, this would have lasted 6 months. No warranty Ariens tells me. I kept this in a heated garage, cleaned it after every...

2 years ago I purchased a 46" 2 blade Ariens Ride on Mower from Home Depot. At first, it was great - cut the grass and had plenty of power. After about 10 hours (maybe less) of use - it started struggling up slight inclines. Eventually, it would just not move at all on anything but a flat grade. I managed to get the transmission replaced under warranty, The next mowing season came, and again, towards the end, the *** thing stopped going up even...

I made the mistake of thinking I was upgrading to an Ariens, was I ever mistaken. They have to have a "Qualified" Ariens dealer assemble and deliver these units, to bad the carb. was defective, so much for the quality control at Ariens Authorized Service, what uncommitted ***. Two years later a fuel leak because of the cheap gasket material, this time under warranty next time probably not so. Go with an MTD, Ariens is nothing more than riding on...

4 months past the 2 year warranty, trans is acting up: Won't stop unless you apply the brake, tractor just keeps going. After applying brake, does disengage but hard to re-engage, "clunks" into drive mode. Contacted Ariens customer service with this issue for help and was told it was out of warranty, take it to your local dealer. Purchased at Home Depot, unfortunately, my closest dealer is about 30 miles away. Home Depot has apparently also...
