Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best types of snow blowers? Single-stage or two-stage?

Like anything else, picking the “best snowblower” depends on several factors: how much it’s going to be used, your budget, and how long you want your snowblower to last.

If you’re only using your snowblower on sidewalks around your house or office building, you can get away with an entry-level Ariens. If you are moving a lot of snow and want a snowblower that will last many seasons, going with a high-quality, heavy-duty snowblower is the way to go.

What should I budget for a snowblower?

Ariens offers a variety of snowblowers with different price points. Depending on what size, style, and features you want in your snowblower, the entry-level snowblowers start around $550 with high-end models ranging from $1,200 and up.

Should I buy a snowblower with wheels or track units?

Almost all of Ariens snowblowers come standard with wheels instead of track units. In Flagstaff and northern Arizona, most individuals are moving snow around their home or business, on paved surfaces. If that is the case for you, a snowblower with wheels is perfect.

If you are moving snow on unpaved surfaces or forested areas, consider an Ariens snowblower with track units that offer more traction.

Does a single-stage or two-stage snowblower work best on paved areas? Gravel?

For paved areas like sidewalks, driveways, or parking lots, single-stage snowblowers works great. If you are moving snow on gravel, unpaved, or dirt areas, two-stage snowblowers work better than single-stages ones.

Does the housing height of a snowblower matter?

Absolutely! The housing height of the snowblower determines how much snow can be thrown at once (in addition to the number of stages). An Ariens snowblower with tall housing can clear deep and tall snow drifts with ease. The shorter the housing height is, the more the snowblower will struggle with tall, deep snow.

Common Issues with Snow Blowers

This Thanksgiving break, Flagstaff was covered in two feet of snow with more on the way. You pull out your snow blower to clear the snow, but your snow blower is either not working or not running the best it could. In the last couple of days, we have had many customers stop by and ask the HomCo technicians how to get their snowblower up and running or just running right. HomCo reached out to Marc Braatz our lead Ariens Technician and asked him to give us some common problems and possible solutions with snow blowers to help our customers troubleshoot and fix their snow blowers.

Snow Blower Features

The first snowstorm just recently hit Flagstaff. For the next five months, you will never know when you will wake up and look out at the driveway just to see it covered with snow. When this happens, you now have to clear the driveway to get out, and on top of that, you must get the kids ready, make breakfast, and get to work on time. Just when you thought it could not get worse, the snow plow has been through and has left you a nice pile of snow at the end of your driveway. There must be an easier way than having to shovel out all the snow. The answer to that problem may be to buy a snow blower.

Prepare for Winter with Ariens Snow Throwers

Winter is upon us and fortunately or unfortunately, depending on who you are, it is time to start thinking about the coming snow. The Farmer Almanac states that it is wise to be prepared for below-normal winter temperatures in the southwest, so it is time to be prepared and have a plan about how you are going to deal with all the snow that is coming this winter.
