    Got a brand new ariens LM21S and one of my dingus employees didnt strap it down in the trailer. Smashed a huge chunk out of the plastic shroud. Is this replaceable on the engine or no? Any effects from having it broken?

    Yes the plastic shroud is replaceable. And yes it will damage the engine to run it with the shroud damaged or missing. The correct term for this shroud is blower housing. It directs the air flow over the engine and the engine will ove heat if the blower housing is damged of missing. Go to and login using the GUEST link.
