According to the CPSC, a drive pulley can crack while in use and cause the auger/impeller or brush to continue to rotate after the clutch lever is disengaged. This poses amputation and laceration hazards to consumers.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled snow throwers and brushes and contact Ariens Company for a free repair. Consumers should remember to never put their hands into the discharge chute.
