Ariens Snow Blower Reviews
“I bought this two years ago and after two winters I can’t complain. This is the first snowblower I’ve ever purchased, however. Comparing the build quality to the Compact model is no comparison. The Deluxe is better.”
“The 26″ drifts were caused by being plowed in by the village trucks. The 21″ high intake on the Ariens Deluxe 24 handled the drifts on the sidewalk with no issues. My 2 car wide driveway was cleared of 12 inches of heavy snow as fast as I drove it.”
“I bought this just in time for our first snowstorm, which was last week. The snow was quite heavy, since it was mixed with some rain, but this snowblower did a good job of moving it.”
“This snowblower is absolutely wonderful. We had an old snowblower before this one and it’s a night and day difference. The Ariens glides with ease and turns on a dime.”
Snow Blower vs Snow Removal Service
Still having trouble deciding whether to buy a snowblower? Consider the following:
1. Your Time is Valuable
Life is busy… kids, family, and work can often get in the way. Shoveling snow is just another task that you don’t need. One of the main reasons homeowners choose a snow removal service is because they value their time and don’t enjoy clearing snow.
2. Snow Blowers Are Inconvenient
A snow blower takes time to use, clean, and maintain. Imagine having to pull out the snowblower every time it snows or when the snowplow blocks your driveway. It could be early in the morning or in the middle of the day. Do you want to go through the hassle?
3. More Money Than You Think
There is a hefty cost in buying a snowblower, but many homeowners think that once purchased, you will save more money. Consider the time it takes to maintain and use a snowblower. It costs about $100/year for annual snowblower maintenance (oil change, lubrication, and more), plus the time it takes you to bring your snowblower for servicing. Consider how much your time is worth when deciding to use a snow removal service or buying a snowblower.
4. Operating Snow Blowers and Shoveling Snow Increase the Risk of Heart attacks
Snow shoveling and pushing a snowblower are known triggers for heart attacks, according to Harvard Health. Rarely exercising and cold weather both boost blood pressure, interrupt blood flow to part of the heart, and make blood more likely to form clots.
