2010 Ariens 22 inch Compact Series Model 920013 2-Stage Gas Snow Blower Review

It’s not which is the best snow thrower.  It is which snow thrower is best for you!

Many of you want a small snow thrower, but the single stage snowthrowers just won’t throw snow well enough.  You have read my review of the 22 inch Craftsman/MTD and realized that a good working snowblower is more important than price. The 24 inch models are too big.

Ariens 22 inch

There are very few snowblowers in this size range that actually work well.

Here is one of the best small snowblowers on the market. This small machine has many of the features found on the larger machines (6 speeds, remote chute) yet is small enough for your single-car drive.


The Ariens Compact 22 is comparably priced to the Toro PowerClear. The PowerClear is the best single-stage snow thrower and for a few dollars more you can get the two stage Ariens.

This snowblower comes in two versions:  The Model 920012 comes with an Ariens branded motor and the 920013 with a Subaru engine.   Both of these overhead valve engines are dependable and have been around for quite some time.
