Based in Brillion, Wisconsin, Ariens entered the snow thrower market in 1960. One of their most enduring and successful products is the Ariens Sno-Thro¬©. Ariens snowthrowers are known for their durability and quality design and backed by an industry leading customer warranty.

Ariens Snowblowers History of Quality

The company has sold more than 2 million machines. Their snow throwers are durable rugged machines that perform well for decades. Older Ariens units used a very heavy gauge steel blower and rake (auger) design, and many of their older units are still very popular and remain in service after more than 30 years.

Ariens Sno-Thro© Models Comparison

Snow blowers manufactures do not use model years for their latest snow blowing equipment. They use model numbers and only change those numbers when they significantly change that machine.

Ariens Model Numbers are typically found on the controls panel. It can also be found on the back of the clutch housing at the rear of the unit below the engine, where you will find a small identification plate on which the model number and serial number of your machine are etched.

Ariens Model numbers have specific designations. As an example, a model such as “ST824”. can be translated to mean your “Sno-Thro” unit has an 8 hp engine, and an impeller opening width of 24 inches.
