    I'd like to give Everride a try I like the machine and my dealer is second to none. I'm a little concerned with them recently being purchased by Ariens. Will they be phased out? Are their any dramitic changes being worked on for the units?

    I wouldn't even think twice about buying an Everride. Great machine and I truly feel the Ariens money will help promote an awesome machine. Bought 5 already and love them!!

    Love the warrior--buddy has one...I have a Hornet and I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Actually...I'd buy the Warrior, but the Hornet does a great job for me.

    This is the first I've heard that Ariens bought ACI ... sounds like it will work out for those with that product, so go ahead and buy one, you might get a good deal !!

    I have no doubt it's a great machine; I'm just afraid it will be phased out.

    Phasing out is possible, along with any other brrad out there on the market.
    Every company poses a slight risk. My source tells me there is a year and a half worth of inventory to assemble new machines in the plant. That came from a dealer I trust and have dealt with for over 20 years NEVER steering me wrong. What you have is an Everride frame with everone else's components basically. Everride doesn't make the engine, hydro pumps, etc.......
    Why worry? Be happy riding in style and comfort on a brand new Warrior!!:)
