I have a 2-stage Ariens and think it’s a fine machine. I’d pay a few extra bucks for the Subaru Robin engine though. After trouble with fuel systems on a few B&S engines, I made the switch. Five years now, zero maintenance needed. I treat the fuel with Stabil. At the end of the season, I just shut the fuel valve and let it run until it stalls. The next season, I add some fresh gas and go.

It seems to me as though the safe bet would be to get the cash and get a new model. At least then you should have many years of trouble-free use. If cash is tight, ask for some warranty on the used model being offered.

Good luck,
