Who Makes Ariens AX Engine?

Who Makes Ariens AX Engine? LCT. (Liquid Combustion Technology)

LCT is one of the best snow blower engines on the market.  When Tecumseh quit making engines, they took that technology and gave it the refinements that were sorely needed for snow engines. Today’s LCT engines are arguably the best snow engine for dependability, starting and power for cc’s.

They are fuel efficient and quiet. Of course use good, fresh fuel and always use a fuel stabilizer.

Ariens AX engines are serviced warrantied through the Ariens dealer network. You do not have to contact the manufacture or another servicing network for warranty repairs.

By the way, LCT is an U.S. company and has been around over 25 years. LCT has a proven track record of quality and engineering excellence with hundreds of thousands of engines sold to world class OEM’s and retailers in North America alone. Their extensive service network is supported by the Lauson Power Company who is well known for providing the highest standards of customer satisfaction. LCT engines are engineered in the U.S.  Just like the Briggs & Stratton snow engines and Powermore snow engines they are made offshore.  LCT makes their own engines and they own their own factories. LCT is engineered as a new generation of power and reliability for all of your power equipment needs. (Lauson is America’s oldest engine company)

Ariens Polar Force engines are B&S. According to the Briggs & Stratton website the following engines are NOT made in the U.S.A. 800, 900, 1150, 2100 Snow Series™ Source: Briggs & Stratton Engine Manufacturing Locations

I have no problems recommending the LCT engines labeled as the Ariens AX. (LCT also makes the Husqvarna Snow King engines)

I do want to say that LCT like the other engine brands make different quality engines for different applications. The Ariens AX and Husqvarna Snow King engines are best LCT has to offer. The other LCT motors you may find on other snow blowers do not have the same specs.

Here are the current Ariens Snow Blowers at Home Depot that use LCT engines.
