When you search “Made in USA” in the Ariens search function, the results return the US made Snow Blower with a Chinese made engine that can be used for deep snow removal over slopped terrain. Among other products, Ariens makes a Zero Turn Riding Lawn Mower, it comes in 4 different sizes with engine horsepower varying from 14.5 hp to 27 hp; the 27 hp model is recommended for commercial use.
Note: All of their products are designed, fabricated, and assembled here in Brillion, WI and many component parts are foreign sourced. The origin of all of their engines is not known; according to a past website page, they source from up to 7 different engine manufacturers. It looks like the LCT engines are sourced from China; we just found this on their website when they describe the origin of the AX Engine: “This change is part of a larger trend that involves a shift of the entire engine supply chain for snow thrower engines from the U.S. to China.”
Looks like Ariens Company may be all Chinese before the end of the decade!
