I Have a ST24LE, purchased new Dec. 2012, after I sold my uncle's 1974 Sno-Thro,
really solid built machine, with available add on equipment in those days (also
low handles). My new one is a great machine, but I am 6' 0" tall, 215 lbs. and
I find the same issue. I feel like I am bending over all the time while I
follow my Ariens through the snow. This is a strain on both my back and my
shoulders. I realize the cables would be too short and the chute control (very
nice now) might not work, but I would hope the company would consider this in
future models, and retro fit the most current models. The height adjustment
would probably only need 2 to 4 inches (probably more for the 6' 6" basket ball
players out there). Anyone from Ariens out there?
Also, am I the only one out there experiencing glare (back light) from the top
mounted "headlight?" I devised my own "Light Deflector" so I can move the snow
without the light in my eyes.
