Reviewed on   -   Purchased on 1/30/2017
The buying transaction was easy and shipping was fast. The blower is very well made. After I got it put together - it took 15 min.- It started up on the first try. So far I have used it twice with no problems.

Does this engine use regular gas or a gas/oil mixture?

Judy, the engine is a 4-cycle engine, which does not require you to mix gas and oil together.
Asked on 1/10/2017 10:52:49 AM by Rob
I'm assuming this needs to be assembled ?

Rob, some minor assembly is required before use, such as unfolding the handle bars, connecting the discharge. Here is the Operator's Manual, which outlines additional tasks as well.

Asked on 8/21/2016 9:37:44 AM by Dianna
Can you tell me how this blower performs with heavy wet snow?

Dianna, the Compact 20 is a brand new model this year. Any time you're trying to remove heavy, wet snow, you should operate the snowblower at a slower pace, so not to bog down the augers too much. This is Ariens smallest two stage unit with a 208cc engine.  If your region typically see more heavy, wet snow, you may want to consider a more powerful unit, like the Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO
