Ariens Introduces Professional 21 Single-Stage Snow Thrower, Designed for Professionals

10/10/2017 5:00:00 AM

​Earlier this year, Ariens® introduced the Professional 21 single-stage snow thrower, a 21-inch compact and durable solution for snow-removal professionals. The Professional 21 was created in response to the need for a single-stage solution that is tough enough for a commercial user.

The Professional 21 will be available for demo at the upcoming GIE + Expo trade show in Louisville, Ky. Come visit Ariens at booth #7120 to see the latest in snow innovation.

Designed for heavy-duty work, the Professional 21 is built to be durable, reliable, performance-driven and maintenance friendly. It features a spring-loaded scraper bar that self-adjusts to follow the contours of the ground, a thick paddle that cleans to the surface, and optimal handlebar positions for system performance and user comfort.


The Professional 21 also features an open engine design with access to the carburetor, recoil and spark plug for easy maintenance. Keeping ease-of-use in mind, the machine also features an easy start sequence on the engine and an on/off switch instead of a key to guarantee that the machine starts in any weather conditions. Reinforced housing sides, high impact wheels and reinforced rod beneath housing guarantee extra durability, even in tough conditions.

For the snow removal professional, the Professional 21 also includes an hour meter to help keep maintenance schedules on track. When the work is done, the easy load handlebar system helps guide the machine up onto the back of a truck with ease.

"With the Professional 21, we've come up with the ultimate machine for commercial users," said Ariens Company VP of Marketing Matt Medden. "Professionals are looking for something that's easy to use and can stand up to the work they're completing every day. The Professional 21 has thoughtful features incorporated, specifically designed to impact the machine's durability and performance, which we think will go a long way in helping pros get the job done."

For 2017, the Professional 21 is available in two models, the Professional 21 SSR and the Professional 21 SSRC, which includes remote chute rotation. The SSR model will have a manufacturer's advertised price (MAP) of $599 USD and the SSRC model will have a MAP price of $649 USD. These units offer a three-year residential warranty or a one-year commercial warranty.

The Professional 21 will be available in late October 2017 at authorized Ariens dealers in the United States and Canada.​​​​

Ariens® introduces RapidTrak™ Sno-Thro® technology, an innovative system designed to combine the best of both wheeled and track Sno-Thro machines.  

The RapidTrak system is designed to move fast, matching the speed of wheeled Sno-Thro model.

"The RapidTrak is the latest innovation we've created for the Ariens brand," said Ariens Company VP of Marketing Matt Medden. "With a completely redesigned track system, we've been able to capture the best of both a track and a traditional Sno-Thro unit, bringing unmatched efficiency to our customers."

Ariens Launches Three New Snow Products for Upcoming Snow Season

9/12/2017 5:00:00 AM

​​For the upcoming snow season, Ariens has introduced three new products to its lineup. All of Ariens' snow products are crafted and assembled in the United States with quality materials and superior attention to detail, making Ariens the reigning King of Snow®.

Professional 21 Single-Stage Snow Blower

Professional 21 

The Professional 21 is a 21-inch compact and durable solution for snow-removal professionals. This machine was created in response to the need for a single-stage solution that is tough enough for a commercial user.

Designed for heavy-duty work, the Professional 21 is built to be durable, reliable, performance-driven and maintenance friendly. It features a spring-loaded scraper bar that self-adjusts to follow the contours of the ground, a thick paddle that cleans to the surface, and optimal handlebar positions for system performance and user comfort. Other notable features include an open design, allowing easy access to the engine for maintenance, and Smart Lift, which is a feature that allows one user to easily load the unit on and off of trailers.

RapidTrak™ Technology

 

Ariens® is proud to introduce RapidTrak™ Sno-Thro® technology, an innovative system designed to combine the best of both wheeled and track Sno-Thro machines. 

The RapidTrak system is designed to move fast, matching the speed of wheeled Sno-Thro model. The track design gives users the option of using a full track system for ultimate grip and traction or adjusting the back wheel of the track up, creating a faster, more maneuverable system. In the wheel setting, it is easy to turn the RapidTrak machine at the end of a driveway or around obstacles.

RapidTrak also includes a third setting, which allows the user to tilt the housing of the machine down towards the ground while in track mode, helping to dig into the snow and clean to the pavement. Track adjustments are easy to make; a trigger on the right handlebar allows the user to easily adjust any setting on the go.  

Classic Sno-Thro® Series​

 

The all-new Ariens Classic Sno-Thro is a snow blower with a lower price point and several of the same features that the Ariens snow lineup is known for.

The Ariens Classic is available with a 24-inch housing, making it small enough to fit into tight storage spaces for homeowners in urban settings.

The unit also features a durable, industry-leading all-steel construction. The steel components of the Classic 24 include the chute, dash and skid shoes, making the Classic a much more durable option than other units in this entry-level prince point.

The Classic 24 was also designed with a superior top-loaded aluminum gear case, which helps prevent oil from leaking out of the unit.

EZ-Launch™ EFI Engine Offering Expansion

In addition to its new products, Ariens is also expanding its EFI engine offering to include two new models from the Professional Sno-Thro line, the Professional Hydro 28 EFI and Professional Hydro 36 EFI.

Last fall, Ariens introduced the AX EZ-Launch engine technology. With that introduction, Ariens became the first brand in the industry to apply modern automotive technology in an EFI solution for snow products.

The Ariens AX EZ-Launch™ EFI engine starts in two simple steps, versus six steps with a traditional carbureted engine. All that the user needs to do is turn the key and pull the recoil cord (or use the electric start). The engine's system uses an electronic governor, which virtually eliminates speed loss and delivers consistent throwing performance along with an ultra-quiet idle. The combination of the electronic fuel injection and the throttle control on dash allow the user to control that amount of engine power needed for the snow conditions, using only the exact amount of fuel you need for the job. ​
