    If you want an Ariens sno-blower, they are getting hard to get because their engine supplier(Tecumseh) quit making them. It was on the news last week.

    Do you think that would be a concern when thinking of buying one?

    according to the news report, Ariens wasn't give much advance notice form Tecumseh, and now they are scrambling to come up with an engine supplier, so inventory is going to be tight according to the article.

    I would highly NOT recommend that thrower...

    My friend used one last year and had many problems, just like me with my big box blower.

    Many broken shear pins every night, and cutting edge would get used up so fast that it would damage the body of the blower. You would have to run the shoes up an inch for it not to damage the blower.

    The thing would blow snow 40 feet through the air though.
