The Ariens Arrow Team, consisting of Josh Wilson and Regan Vehring, will be completing in the 51st running of the Eagle River World Championship Snowmobile Derby.  We are running in multiple classes:

Josh Wilson

Race Sled             1998 Yamaha SRX 600

Classes                 Sportsman 600, Sportsman 600 / Formula 500 Combined

Regan Vehring

Race Sled             Power by Perry F500 Polaris

Classes                 Friday Night Thunder F500, F500 Pro, Sportsman 600 / Formula 500 Combined


We ran at the United States Snowmobile Association sanctioned races in Ironwood, MI this past weekend.  Overall we are having a good year with several race wins last weekend.  We are representing Ariens Company with a fully decaled trailer, Ariens flags flying proudly above the trailer and snow blowers on display for the crowds.

At the race in Eagle River look for us near the registration building between turns 1 and 2.  We will have product on display and promotional items for those who wish to stop by and chat.

I have been racing on the pro level since 2006 and have been Sportsman 600 World and National Champion.  Regan has only been racing snowmobiles since 2010 and has made great progress.  He is advancing his skill level quickly which was evident by his first win last weekend!  Regan has 20 years of experience racing go karts and has been a multiple National Karting Champion.

I am moving on into the faster more exotic racing sleds and debut the Ariens Limited 500 modified machine at Ironwood last weekend.  Unfortunately the Limited 500 has been plagued with a few teething pains that can be expected with an all new chassis.  Even though I finished 3rd with it last weekend, I will not race the Limited at Eagle River.  The Limited sled will resume racing on January 25 and will run in the remainder of the United States Snowmobile Association Races.

Please come and see us at all the races this season.  Stop by the Ariens trailer to check out new products and join in the fun.  We will also be sending updates from the track so stay tuned for more updates.

Top 6 Snow Blower Safety Tips from Ariens Company, "The King of Snow"

12/12/2013 6:00:00 AM

Snow blowers can certainly make the job of removing snow an easier task. But there are a few tips homeowners need to keep in mind to make sure they clear snow safely.

Here are the top 6 snow blower safety tips from Ariens Company, The King of Snow.

1. Read your owner's manual before you even start your snow blower, so that you understand all of the recommended operation and safety procedures.

2. Keep the area of operation clear of all toys, pets, and debris. Thrown objects can cause injury.

3. Don't throw the snow toward people or other property that may be injured or damaged by thrown objects.

4. Keep your hands and feet away from all moving parts, and keep clear of the auger while the engine is running.

5. Before removing clogs or servicing your machine disengage the clutch, stop the engine, remove the key, and wait for all moving parts to stop. Only use a clean-out tool to clear blockages; never use your hands.

6. Choose the right snow blower. Factors like the size of your driveway/sidewalk, the type/amount of snow you typically get, and who will be using the snow blower most of the time are important considerations. New features like Auto-Turn™ zero-turn steering technology make it easier to maneuver a big, powerful snow blower without having to fumble with triggers.
