This is the Ariens I picked up.  I don't know if it runs but I sure hope I can get it going.

 

I did notice that it has a mid and front PTO, so far I haven't seen any rear PTO unless I am looking in the wrong place for it.

 

Someone painted the rear tin yellow for some reason.

 

What all should I know about these machines?

First, they are a real good machine. Second, manuals are available in our Manuals Section for you to download. Now, have fun as you explore and learn about your new treasure. Good Luck, Rick

 

Bet you can't wait to ride it around.

Das im amerikanischen Wisconsin ansässige Familienunternehmen entwickelt und erzeugt seit über 70 Jahren qualitativ hochwertige Gartengeräte und radbetriebene Schneefräsen.

Bereits 1960 wurde die erste Schneefräse mit 2-Stufen-Frässystem auf den Markt gebracht. Diese Technologie wurde im Laufe der Zeit weiterentwickelt und verbessert und heute umfasst die breite Produktpalette das passende Gerät für jeden Einsatzbereich, von der 5 PS Fräse für den privaten Gebrauch bis hin zu den leistungsstarken Modellen für den professionellen Einsatz. Die ausgereifte Technik und die Zuverlässigkeit der Maschinen machen ARIENS-Schneefräsen bereits seit Jahren zu den meistverkauften Europas.

Eine Besonderheit des Ariens Gartenprogramms sind Rasenmäher mit lenkbaren Vorderrädern, die ihnen durch ihr Bewegungstalent ein müheloses Mähen rund um Hindernisse ermöglichen. Eine weitere Innovation ist der neu entwickelte Hochgrastrimmer mit dem patentierten schwebenden Drehkopf, damit man auch an schwer zu erreichende Stellen rund um Büsche oder bei Zäunen herankommt. ARIENS Rasentraktoren sind durch das umfangreiche Zubehörprogramm (Schneeschild, Schneefräse ) unentbehrliche Helfer über das ganze Jahr.

Great new ride. It looks like it might take a bit of tinkering. The rear pto was a add on option from new, not all will have it.

Has anyone ever seen a rear PTO for sale for one of these??

 

 

I noticed last night that the air breather assembly was missing on the motor so I will have to find one of those somewhere.

 

The lucky thing I guess was that they had covered up the carb with plastic and taped it into place.

They are great machines. Rear PTO was an option, might be kind of hard to find.

Do you have it running yet? And yes, the rear PTO was optional and the only thing I can think of that you would need it for is a tiller attachment. But there may be a way to power something else off of the rear also.

I had seen a small version of a Bush hog for garden tractors with a rear PTO, also Ariens made a version of a Trac Vac fo these machines that would run from the rear PTO as well...

Yep she is running good so far.  I LOVE this machine. I ended up fabbing up a 3pt on the rear, attach a scoop bucket, and put a blade on teh front.

I wish I could find another one of these, but they are hard to come by around here I guess.
