Ariens Introduces Path-Pro Single-Stage Snowthrower
The King of Snow Brings Performance and Durability Down to Size
BRILLION, Wis. — Ariens Company<http://e2.ma/click/76wvf/zcg8vb/jwo3bb> introduces the new Path-Pro single-stage snowthrower, a lightweight, compact and maneuverable machine starting at an entry price of $399. The new model is small in size but designed to be durable enough for heavyweight use by professional snow removal crews.
The Path-Pro models feature a 21-inch clearing width and Ariens AX engines in 136cc or 208cc displacement options. The Path-Pro cleans down to the pavement and delivers a throwing distance of up to 35 feet. A chute rotation option allows the operator to direct snow left or right while in use.
The new Path-Pro is the smallest snow thrower built by Ariens, the number one Sno-Thro brand in the world, according to Steve Demsien, vice president of marketing. Ariens offers more than 20 models of snow throwers available for every type of use.
“Ariens applied its 50 years of experience in the design of heavy-duty two-stage snowthrowers and created a single-stage model that lives up to the Ariens standard of durability in a smaller, lightweight machine,” says Demsien. “The target market is the professional snow removal contractors who will give these machines a beating day-in and-day out, and homeowners who desire those same professional results. This machine was designed to hold up when transported, loaded on and off trucks and run in high-use conditions.”
Other heavy-duty features include a foldable, ergonomic handle; commercial-duty housing that cuts through packed snow; reinforced rubber augers; and a protective guard to shield critical engine components. A unique cowl design provides easy access to engine controls and service points for easy maintenance.
Homeowners who have small areas to clear, receive less than 12 inches of snow per snowfall, or are simply looking for a lightweight, maneuverable machine, will find the Path-Pro a reliable addition to their garage, according to Demsien.
The Path-Pro is available in five models with recoil or electric start options and is covered by a three-year consumer, 90-day commercial warranty. Path-Pro single-stage snowthrowers will be available at independent Ariens Dealers and at select Home Depot stores or online at www.homedepot.com<http://e2.ma/click/76wvf/zcg8vb/zop3bb>.
