Jay Landry: When adjusting the friction disk should it be set to slip a little in case I hit ice and force it to much or is that the sheer pins job on the wheels?
cardo: Looks like it was re-powered, that old Ariens is still getting the job done, good vid.
Patrick Wagz: That thing is an absolute tank... in a good way.
Nice little Honda mini-bike (70cc?) in the background... what year?
Sidney S: I watched several of your videos. Thank you very much, I learned a lot from you. you explain things real clear.I have a problem with my Ariens ST824 not moving at all. At least I know where to go and look now.I used it all day yesterday due to heavy snow in the east coast 1-24-16.After I got done using the snow blower, I was going to store it back on the shed and the blower don't want to move at all.
dennypanz: Great Videos dude!!!
Aram Hakobyan: Hi, where can I find the Friction disk for Ariens sno-Tek 28 1708
Richard Persoage: Hi,Great video. You should have cleaned your protective cover.
Robert McGregor: Thank you very much!!!!! Every time, I want to figure out a mechanical problem, you always have a fantastic, clear and understandable repair video. We seem to have a few of the same machines. I just purchased a 2007 Chev Colorado 4x4. If you every find yourself in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I would like to buy you a beer!!! I agree 100 percent with Anthony Guada...you really should have your own TV show. Thank you again!!! Rob McGregor
joe lyons: Great videos , big fan....I have a question on my Ariens724 snowblower, the wheels are locked and won't turn.. I lost a spring, not sure where is connected to blower, but the friction disk is stick to the wheel and won't separate... what does one do???
Dave Dail: Donny,I have a Craftsman Snowking 11hp. I replaced the hex shaft bearings but the drive chain and lower sprocket look out of alignment. Any idea's?
Robert Waid: not to hard a job. ive done lots. anyone can do it. good video.
dff090: Great video working on my newly gotten blower tomorrow. Thanks for the help
anthony guada: Rats, forgot to ask... The shear pin that's under the belly of the Sblower the one for the wheel on the right side. I used the Sblower for like 30seconds on light fluffy snow and the shear pin snapped, This is twice this has happened. I not had time as I was on a job, now just back home after a tough 16 hours of Sblowering, I'll look at it and see what I can see. But you know I'll be checking your vids for the answer.
anthony guada: Ahh nevermind,, I went to use one of my snowblowers, and the one I was using made this loud scary noise.. and would not move,
with flashlight in hand, I notice of of the wheels did not have it's secure pin in place, easy fix, lucky I had brought a back-up machine and used it's secure pin on my machine, Whew,,, almost lost a contract. DONY....sweetheart, baby, you're awesome vids saved the day,, and YES.. BOTH wheels have power.
DonyBoyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy keep banging out them vids
anthony guada: DonyBoyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy You Sir are a credit to mankind, Your video's are top notch, and because of your very informative video's have saved me in the crunch many times. I vote DonyBoy to be on TV have his very own TV SHOW...
ok, nuff with the brown nose'ing
Dony, I replaced the broken sheer pin on the snowblower wheel, only afterwards I noticed that only one of the two wheels has power, is this normal, or should both wheels have power
superdaytimedave: Thank you donyboy. My Ariens snow blower was developing an issue just as you described in another video. After watching this video, I understood how the drive works. I found information to adjust the friction disc until my new disc arrives.
Thanks for all the great videos.
mascarpenter johnson: Don I have a ariens 30" It is a year old. When I start it it takes about 5 min. before it will go into any gears. the shifter works it just will not move. help please
Michael Carton: I have an older ariens 7524. It has two belts driven by two pulleys that are not mounted on the same shaft. I can not find for the life of me A SINGLE picture on the internet of the belt setup. Any help? I have the manual, but it is pretty useless. The idler spring is very weak and not putting any more than .25lb of tension of the pulley and I am trying to figure out if it should be more or maybe I set it up wrong. Thanks
