When did Ariens stop using Briggs and Stratton engine?

A small percentage used Briggs & Stratton engines and others. In December 2008, Tecumseh began winding down production, and the 2009 model year was the last to receive Tecumseh engines. In 2010 Briggs & Stratton became the main supplier of engines for Ariens machines.

Why is my Ariens snowblower running rough?

A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the snowblower for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to run roughly.

Are Ariens and Husqvarna the same?

Husqvarna offers the same accessories as Ariens, plus spreaders, bumpers, brush guards, lawn sweepers and an electric assist that works with the sleeve hitch to raise and lower accessory equipment.

Is Ariens a good brand?

Almost like the name ‘Porsche’, A name says it all, Ariens has been around a long time, making quality snow blowers, zero turn mowers, and other fine products. This is considered a residential grade mower, but the way it is built, the sturdyness, and the Kawasaki engine, speaks of close to commercial grade quality.

How do I fix my snowblower from sputtering?

A clogged fuel filter will also prevent the engine from getting fuel, causing the engine to sputter or run rough. Check the fuel filter and replace it if clogged. A dirty spark plug won’t ignite the fuel consistently, causing the engine to miss and sputter. Check the spark plug and replace it if necessary.

Why does my snowblower pop when running?

Including an exhaust valve not closing fully, and maybe something like the spark plug not firing properly, letting a dose of raw, unburned fuel suddenly hit the hot muffler, which ignites it.

Are Ariens snowblower engines made in China?

All Ariens are made in the USA, the snowblower itself, but not the engine. All 2-stage snowblower engines, on all 2-stage snowblowers by all manufacturers, are now made in China. (except for perhaps Honda, some engines made in Japan.)
