Brillion, Wis. (July 20, 2016) – Ariens® introduces the industry-first Ariens AX® EZ-Launch
The Ariens AX EZ-Launch
Because the system is electronic, it automatically adjusts to the environment and can start in extreme weather, at high or low altitude and can tackle any type of snow. With traditional engines, the machine can lose more than 10 percent of its power when encountering drifts or wet, heavy snow. However, the Ariens AX EZ-Launch EFI engine controls its speed automatically, and it won’t slow down when it encounters large piles of snow.
The Ariens AX EZ-Launch EFI engine can be run in different modes: from full power to efficiency modes. While in efficiency mode, the engine runs quieter, uses less fuel and runs at a slightly lower speed, making it a good option for early morning hours when others are sleeping. The power mode increases the engine’s output and provides the unit with more power to get through tough jobs.
The Ariens EFI system is also completely sealed, helping to significantly reduce maintenance costs. The system will not require adjusting since it is sealed, as gas won’t deteriorate if left in the engine. This allows users to store their machine without worry.
“At Ariens, we’re always striving to come up with new and innovative solutions for our customers,” said Ariens Company VP of Marketing Matt Medden. “Today, we’ve launched an industry first by introducing EFI technology on our snow products, and in addition to being proud of being first, we’re excited to provide our customers with a technology that will allow them to get their jobs done better and more efficiently.”
For 2016, Ariens is offering the EFI engine on two models, the Deluxe 30 and the Platinum 24 SHO. Models start at a promotional price of $1,699 USD, and will be available in late October 2016 at authorized Ariens dealers and Home Depot stores in the United States and Canada. Ariens dealers will exclusively carry the Platinum 24 SHO EFI model. The units come backed with a three-year consumer warranty.
