great.butBy myles(Owner), Dec. 20, 2010The simplicity 1524 runs great and is tough however the button for the chute swivel is a royal pain to use!!!You can't hold the grips and push the button at the same time and I am not a clod! Its on the wrong side to start(right) it is easier to use on the left hand as that one is not as critical as the right for holding the traction down.Otherwise I have No complaints,its a great machine and I ve owned a few,stay away from Airen's it is a cheapened unit compared to units of 10 years ago.Even the mechanic say stay away! Go Toro or simplicity! My brother in law bought a arens and I repair it regularly plus have upgraded most of it to just work!
shear pin disasterBy Edward J. August(Owner), Dec. 5, 2014Had a simplicity snowblower for 25 years and a driveway 250 feet long. In all that time with many, many very heavy wet snows replaced a shear pin only once or twice.
Have had this model 3 winters and a 65 foot driveway and have gone through 8 shear pins!!
The maddening part is that when a pin shears the majority of the pin remains jammed in the auger and is nearly impossible to remove.
A shame because this an otherwise good machine but I would warn against buying one.
