Sno-Thro Series of powerful snow throwers from Ariens (with related video)
Ariens Company introduces updates for the 2011-2012 line-up of Sno-Thro models, integrating more operator-friendly features, upgrading all models to a cast iron gear case and backing the products with a five-year warranty.
The Compact, Deluxe, Platinum and Pro Series Sno-Thro models feature new dash panels with a high-powered, blue-tinted LED halogen headlight for optimal visibility in snowy conditions. The steel-constructed machines also include new controls and touch points. Ergonomic joystick-style quick-turn knobs and tapered clutch paddles enhance user comfort. The gray-colored touch points are easier to see, and knobs on the chute deflector and speed control are softer.
A new commercial-duty cast iron gear case for the entire line-up provides durability and strength to withstand harsh conditions during winter storms. The case includes a top-fill feature to lengthen lubrication life and protect against leakage. L-3 Synthetic gear lubricant offers film strength and reduces maintenance. The heavy-duty case does not contain a center split, preventing lubrication leakage.
The Compact, Deluxe and Platinum Sno-Thro model gear cases are covered by a five-year limited warranty, and the entire units are covered by a three-year limited consumer warranty and a one-year limited commercial warranty. The Professional Sno-Thro models feature a five-year limited gear case warranty, and a three-year limited consumer and commercial warranty.
Additional updates include a remote chute deflector on the Compact 24 model; 208cc Ariens OHV engine by LCT on the Compact 22 model; 205cc Ariens Polar Force engine by Briggs & Stratton on the Compact 24 model; and 249cc Ariens Polar Force engine by Briggs & Stratton on the Deluxe 24 model. The Deluxe 30 includes handwarmers. Some models include a scraper bar for chipping and scraping ice easily.
The Platinum and Track Series feature a joystick-style quick-turn knob, and rounding out available features in those two groups are 420cc and 342cc engines.
