Ariens introduces 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.
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.
