Ariens® Company Introduces Industrys First, Only Auto-Turn Steering Technology Exclusive zero-turn technology makes snow removal efficient and effortless Ariens Company unveils the industrys first and only Auto-Turn steering technology exclusively for the companys line of Sno-Thro® snow blowers. The revolutionary new Auto-Turn technology changes the snow removal experience without adjusting speed or engaging triggers or levers, says Angela Raddant, snow product marketing manager for Ariens Company. The technology is exclusively available on Ariens two-stage Sno-Thro equipment and enables operators to turn effortlessly without adjusting speed. Auto-Turn steering technology makes snow removal easier, faster and more comfortable for the operator. The feature eliminates the need to take large loops during a turn, instead making even, tight turns from the center axis of the machine. Now operators can avoid straining and pulling while initiating a turn, instead guiding the snow blower precisely and smoothly without adjusting speed. Auto-Turn increases efficiency and maneuverability, while decreasing operator fatigue and stress. Additionally, no manual adjustments are necessary to enable the Auto-Turn feature. The Auto-Turn feature is available on Ariens Deluxe 28 and 30 wheel-drive models and all models in the Ariens Platinum, Professional and Hydro-Pro families. Its also available on Ariens Pro and Hydro-Pro track-drive models, improving maneuverability of these already impressive machines, which have superior grip and traction for removing snow on steep inclines or icy surfaces.
