Features for the Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO - 2016

Our #1 Best Seller just got better! The Super High-Output impeller system was a hit last year, but this year Ariens has also rebalanced the Deluxe SHO model to improve the Auto-Turn steering system. Plus, it's now equipped with a more durable molded friction disc to extend the life of the machine, so it will perform year after year.

Imagine blasting through 12+ inches of snow, making easy quick turns, while throwing snow 55 feet away from the driveway. The days of maneuvering a heavy, stubborn machine are over. Let the Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO you how easy snow blowing can be.

  • Ariens AX306 Engine:Built to perform in cold temperatures up to 2 hours. Plus, it's equipped with a 120V electric start with recoil backup starting system.
  • Super High-Output Impeller (SHO):A faster spinning impeller as a result of modified belts and pulleys allows you to clear snow faster and throw snow farther.
  • Auto-Turn Steering:Automatically senses change in in direction as you turn. Power is then adjusted to the inside wheel, making turning much easier.
  • Molded Friction Disk:Fewer overall parts, easier to service, and more robust shifting.
  • Re-balanced Machine:The axle has been relocated on the frame to improve balance and performance of the Auto-Turn steering feature.
  • Disc-O-Matic Drive System:Smoothly shifts into 6 forward speeds or two reverse speeds.
  • Cast Iron Gear Case:Durable in extreme conditions, delivering ideal power to the auger system to churn and throw snow.
  • In-Dash Remote Chute/Deflector Control:Rotate the chute 200 degrees and adjust the discharge angle, both from the operator's position.
  • Interlocking Controls:Allows the ability to lock both handles, so one hand can be free to adjust chute rotation as you move.
  • 16" Snow Tread Tires:16" x 4.8" directional snow tread tires provide necessary grip on hard packed snow.
  • Warranty:3 year residential warranty, 90 day commercial warranty.

Pleasure working with Mowers at Jacks. Had a little hiccup with getting the order shipped promptly but their customer service was immediately responsive and threw in a little concession for the inconvenience.

Only other suggestion I would make is to notify buyer the need for gear lube (and possibly oil?). Would have been easier to buy and receive along with the blower than sourcing it locally.

My son did the research and the Ariens seemed to be the best for the buck. The only snafu was getting a truck with the lift gate to have it delivered. That took a couple of days. It wasn't a big deal since I ordered early enough before any snow fell.

Haven't had any snow yet, but after easy set-up, the unit started on the first pull.

Would probably be better if Jacks used a carrier other than UPS Freight for delivery - scheduling was a hassle, and truck didn't arrive until 7:00PM, when delivery was supposed to be by 5:00PM at the latest.  Have had much better experience with R&L Carriers and Estes Express Lines.

I wanted to buy a snowblower that would suit my needs...after doing some research and talking (Linda) at Jack's she steer me to the aliens deluxe 28....She was knowledgeable about the equipment and shipping information....I received my blower a week later, assemble the handles, check the fluids, put some fresh gas in it and took it on its maiden voyage....Started on 3rd pull... tried out the electric start all  worked fine....Also Linda ask if I wanted extra shear bolts (blower comes with 2) but I got 2 extra ones just to have them....Got first snow about 6 inches and was chomping at the bit to use the blower....everything went fine and was amazed at how easy cleaning driveways was with this blower....I must confess it will cause you more time outside because you will want to clean off your neighbours driveways, before  you know it you will have cleaned off the entire neighborhood....You will be the best liked neighbor on snow days...Just kidding but a great piece of equipment...well built.....Hope you enjoy your new blower.....

I bought this machine after the Blizzard/2016 storm we had of course. I was looking for a machine that was easy to operate, reliable, and could move allot of snow in a short amount of time. I did get to use the machine one time after the Blizzard on a 8" snowfall that we got. I am happy to say that I am extremely please with the machine. It was an absolute pleasure clearing my 275 foot driveway. I found the machine very easy to operate and it does move allot of snow fast. The machine had no trouble at all even at the end of driveway where there was a good 15" of snow. This machine did not even struggle. In the past I had only bought the red machines. This machine cost about half cost of a everything relative red machine and I would say does an equal to better job at blowing snow. I have no reason to believe that I will not own this machine for years to come and I would definitely recommend this machine to someone that needs to clear a fairly large area. Thank you Ariens and thank you Jacks small engines for a pleasant transaction.

First I want to thank the folks at Jacks for their excellent service in fulfilling my order and in  

overcoming what could have been an ugly delivery problem.( thanks Tim )  

 The Ariens 921044 moves a ton of snow FAST.My driveway is such that I literally have to relocate snow from one place to another.This baby throws it 50 feet out of the way.On the downside, for me,the handles are a bit high.The beast sometimes wanted to go where it wanted to go.I also believe the slowest forward speed is too fast ,especially when going by cars, trucks and other assorted goodies sometime on or alongside driveways.

The issue I've had for years with my old MTD 5hp blower was it couldn't throw snow far enough, in one pass to get it off my motor-court so I would always have to struggle throwing snow that had already been tossed once. This Ariens SHO blower handled snow 3 days after the blizzard and threw it well beyond the edges of my parking area, saving me a lot of time and effort. I regret the fact chains are not an option, as the aggressive tires still slip a fair amount.Hence 4 stars rather than 5.

Very well built, and sad to say its not seen much large snow yet but it has been used a little. All the controls are great and the only concern I had was the zero turn feature with the axle. I am glad to say it works great !! No problems keeping it straight and it turns with ease on a dime! It starts and runs great, looks great, and very easy to get use to the controls. Well built heavy machine that I hope to get 10-15 years out of it. I would recommend it !! Certainly over the big box store selections they offer.

And of course I recommend buying from Jacks !!

This was the top rated snow blower on many websites, and Jacks had the best price anywhere on the net.   After an understandable out of stock situation, Jacks got it to me quickly, and with a few storms in the northeast it has lived up to its billing.   It is a bit of a beast, with the all metal construction making it fairly heavy in the front (a plus for durability, but my mom wouldn't be able to handle it).  Overall a great purchase from good people.

South Jersey finally got our first substantial snow storm (22") and we were able to use our new purchase.  This replaced a relic that my dad purchased in 1965.  The electronic start is fantastic.  The manual start also worked well when we ran out of gas doing the sidewalk.  It did a wonderful job clearing our 150' driveway.  Spraying silicone ensured the wet snow did not clog up the chute.  Both my husband and our adult son used it and are very happy with the purchase.  My son actually lived in Aspen CO and worked for a snow removal company while there.  He compared this to the professional ones used there and said it definitely was worth the investment.  The packaging and shipping of this was wonderful; no issues.  It arrived by truck when expected.  We paid extra for a lift truck delivery which was also worth the extra money.  Hopefully we don't have to replace this one for a long time but I would recommend Ariens and Mowers at Jacks.

Delivered over a day and a half late.
Shipping company claimed it had to do with the weather, even though this was the warmest winter.
Shipping company also didn't want to use a pallet jack even though there was $50 charge for the lift gate. Who did they expect to take it off the lift gate...? Lesson learned when they call to confirm delivery remind the customer service representative to remind the dispatcher to remind the driver to keep the pallet jack in the truck.
Eventually they used their brain and delivered it with pallet jack in the truck to off load it.

The Snow blower was packaged well by Ariens. Assembly took 20 minutes + 5 minutes to sip a beer while double checking the assembly. Starting the Snowblower to 3 pulls. I will probably have to buy ear protection for the snow blower.

Other than that built like a tank expect to keep it for couple decades. Very happy with the purchase.

Waiting for snow, had 3/4" this morning in North Jersey hopefully we get enough to justify starting the tank.

Assembled with ease and starts very easily with one pull.  It is being used at our mountain property where we have a 400' S curve driveway that gains 40' elevation in that distance.  Snow depth this year is over 30".  Have really appreciated the power this machine has. It's ability to throw snow 30+ feet has made it a lot easier to clear snow than the older machine that we had. Has not clogged or broken any shear pins so far.

Finally got enough snow/sleet to use it for the first time, and it's a beast!  Managed 6 inch drifts of wet snow/sleet with no problem!  If I had to make a criticism, it would be that the auto-steer feature is a bit too sensitive for my liking.  The wet snow pulling to the side I hadn't plowed yet seem to sometimes be mistaken for me trying to steer that direction.  Definitely liked the auto-steer, though, when turning around 180 degrees.  Great overall first impression!

I'm a small engine mechanic by trade and had plenty of the 60's- 70's vintage Ariens's snowblowers.  They're great machines and this one is put together well.

The product we purchased is definitely great. However, we did have issues with the extra delivery fee, though the company advertises "free shipping". Please be aware when you are budgeting a purchase of a large machine that this company adds a $50 lift gate fee for getting the machine off the delivery truck. It is a heavy machine and cannot be unloaded single-handedly. However, in my experience, we had a snow blower delivered, and the delivery truck had no lift gate at all. My husband and the delivery man unloaded the machine onto the back of a pick up truck. No one was injured and the whole process took little time. I am still awaiting a complete refund of the "lift gate fee" on this "free delivery."

Great service.  Arrived quickly and placed into my garage.  Assembled in 40 minutes.  Started on second pull. Can't wait for winter. Jacks had best price and very helpful salesman named Sean.  Will definitely order from them again.

It looks great and was easy to assemble. Since it is 70 degrees in Illinois I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Will comment more after actually using the product.

Product shifted and poked thru box during shipping and caused minor damage. Called the company and they wanted to make it right at any cost. Had a pleasant experience any time I contacted them.

First of all the town of shrewsbury didn't purchase the 2 snow blowers. They were simply shipped At that location to save 50.00 shipping charge. The sales information had all wrong information when i originally ordered. But after reading the confirmation I called sales department and straightened everything out. I have know idea why it was so confusing. They were shipped with know problem and very easy to set up. Hopefully they run as good as they look. I hope if we do have any problems the service dept. is not as confusing as the sales dept.

Question:
I live in Buffalo NY. We get a lot of snow some years. Due to unfrozen Lake Erie, snow is sometimes wet and sticky. The town plow leaves a mound of slush. Driveway is 18 ft x 60 ft. I'm thinking 28 in Deluxe SHO. Do you agree with choice?

Answer:
Phil, the Ariens Deluxe 28" SHO was our most popular seller last year, especially with the Super High Output impeller. They were flying off the shelf all season, and during winter storm Jonas, which dumped 2+ feet of snow. The Deluxe 28 SHO seems to combine the ideal amount of power and size for residential users looking to handle varying levels of snowfall, from a few inches to more than a foot. I'm sure you're used to those types of snowfalls in Buffalo, NY.  I would also check out the reviews of the Deluxe 28 SHO to see what our other customers have liked about this model.
