Features for the Ariens Hydro PRO 28

Ariens Professional Sno-Thro series feature units are designed for heavy-duty applications. With the new addition of commercial-grade handlebars, these models not only offer professional performance, they look the part as well. The Hydro Pro models feature a hydrostatic transmission which offers infinitely variable speed (no shifting of gears) up to 2.6 mph.

  • Hydrostatic Drive System:Variable speed drive system smoothly changes speeds without shifting gears.
  • 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.
  • Commercial-Grade HandlebarsMore robust, heavy-duty look and feel commercial-grade handlebars.
  • Commercial Grade Cast Iron Gear Case:Durable in extreme conditions, delivering ideal power to the auger system to churn and throw snow.
  • Quick Turn Chute Control:Rotate the chute 200 degrees and adjust the discharge angle, both from a convenient location on the dashboard.
  • Drift Cutters:Drift cutters extend beyond the height of the auger housing to knock down snow drifts into the auger to process.
  • Heated Handwarmers:Handwarmers are installed on the handles to keep your hands nice and toasty while you operate.
  • 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, 1 year commercial warranty.

 This is an awesome machine. I can not wait to use this. It is very smooth running and easy to control. It  practically runs itself. I think it is even quieter than my old Ariens 8 horsepower. These machines are very well built, my old 8/24 is 29 years old and just replaced the carburetor last year. This will be a suitable backup for my new "toy". The cab cover will keep me well protected from the elements along with the heated hand grips. The easy turn feature is a great addition to the machine making it a breeze to handle. This will make it easy for anyone to use, much less stress on the body. I think all I need now is a cup holder attachment. Let it snow...

Shipped on time, good freight carrier (UPS) delivered on time, no damage. No snow to use it on yet but the equipment works great, started up on first pull after an oil change. Jack's is a good way to go for purchasing equipment.

The bower arrived on schedule and was well packed.  The assembly instructions that were provided by Ariens were not the easiest to follow and could be improved by better diagrams depicting the assembly of the control cables.  The good news is that the assembly was limited and took less than 2 hours.  

Since the blower has arrived we have not had any measurable snow.  Go figure!

Serious motor, hydro control really works, throw direction controls really work. The lower models compromise one or more of the controls. AND when you look at it... it starts!

Was afraid of ordering something like a snowblower on the internet, but Jack's is the real deal!! Called then a few times both before and after the order, and their customer service was superb. I would not hesitate to do business with them again in the future!! Oh, the snowblower's a great product, too!
