Introducing Electronic Fuel Injection for Snow Throwers

Electronic Fuel Injection for Snow Throwers

LCT has produced the first residential Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engines for snow thrower applications. In an effort to reduce the number of customer touch points, LCT has developed EFI engines that eliminate the need for fuel shutoff valves, primers, and chokes. This takes the guess work out of starting – compared to conventional carbureted engines. By simply turning the key and pulling the recoil or using the electric starter, the engine will start in all weather conditions. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) adjusts fuel delivery to compensate for temperature and altitude as needed.
With the addition of an electronic governor, engine performance is enhanced by maintaining the engine set speed, regardless of the load, reducing noise and vibration. A typical mechanical governor controlled engine needs to run 300-400 RPM’s higher to compensate for speed reduction or droop when a load is applied.
Maintenance is reduced since our Electronic Fuel Injection engines do not have a carburetor. Carburetors retain fuel that stagnates and can clog fuel passages, which can affect run quality and startablity. In the event it needs servicing, EFI system troubleshooting is simplified by the ECU flashing error codes that quickly diagnose the issue and repairs can be completed using common tools.

2015 Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO – Picture Review

IMG_3312

This review covers the new Dealer ONLY Ariens Deluxe 28 SHO Model 921044.

I am going to write this review a little differently than others. This review is all pictures with an explanation under each one. Let me know in the comments at the end how you like this format!

Who is this snow blower for? Anyone with a 2 to 3 car wide driveway up to 300 feet long. This snow blower will handle gravel and turf. It will clear wet snow, hard packed snow, end of driveway snow and the snow you got last year in Boston. I only NEED a 24 inch snow blower but if I went out to buy a snow blower tomorrow this would be a great choice. The snow blower will handle 95% of the snows we get in the U. S. and I don’t have a problem recommend it for anyone who gets up to 180 inches of snow a year.  It’s not quite as fast at clearing deep snow as the Ariens Platinum 30 SHO but it has plenty of power to still get the job done no matter where you live.
