The Ariens Mammoth 850, a ride-on multi-attachment vehicle, is the first of its kind and is designed for applications that require substantial snow and ice removal operations, including for city use, municipalities, universities and commercial landscaping. 

“With a powerful engine and four-wheel drive steering, operators are able to cover sizeable surface areas much more easily and efficiently than pushing a vehicle. And with several attachments available that utilize our electric quick-connect system, the Mammoth 850 is an incredibly versatile vehicle that can handle a wide array of tasks,” says Stephen Ariens, director of product management, snow, at AriensCo.

The Mammoth 850 was on display at GIE+EXPO 2021. New Ariens special edition snow blowers made their debut at the tradeshow, and they will only be available at Ariens dealerships. 

The Mammoth 850 attachments are controlled by a joystick and the tractor operates through skid-steer style steering. It features a 28.5-horsepower Kawasaki 850V EFI engine with dual-canister filtration that generates uninterrupted power delivery and automatically adjusts to the application. Four Parker motors power a four-wheel drive riding experience on 22-inch Kendra Terra Trac tires, with a max forward speed of 8 mph and max reverse speed of 4 mph. It has an Ogura 2.75 electric PTO clutch for acceleration and a 10-gallon fuel tank that provides several hours of operation.

The Snowzilla Quick-Attach System is a technology that enables operators to swap attachments in as little as 30 seconds. It is a sealed, electric quick-connect coupling system that has no belts or hydraulic hoses, which limits the time it takes to connect or disconnect an attachment and the maintenance required. Optional attachments include:

  • 48-inch blade with 30-degree pivot angle. A steel edge is standard with an optional poly-edge. Joystick-controlled, it offers a clear line of sight to the attachment. Skid shoes optional.
  • 44-inch power brush with 20-degree rotation right and left. Electric joystick-controlled with a low discharge height, it features polymer bristles which can be individually replaced and is attached with an easy connect PTO (power take off) with shaft collar.
  • 36-inch or 48-inch snow blower with a dual-hinge chute cap that can throw snow from 3-60 feet. Controlled by an electric joystick rotation, it has 200 degrees of chute rotation. It features a 16-inch impeller and steel scraper blade. It utilizes the same pro-style skid shoes that found on two-stage Ariens Sno-Thros.
  • Salt drop spreader that features a variable width spread from 30-60 inches with on-dash control.
  • Brine attachment that uses a 20-gallon on-board tank that includes pump, controller, spray nozzles and spray wand. The sprayer operates behind the machine and is the same width as the machine, ensuring wide spraying coverage. A hand wand is included for spot treatment.

Many landscapers are choosing brine for pre-treatment because it reduces the effort to clear after the blizzard. Also, brine can cost less than salt, doesn’t bounce off paved surfaces into landscape areas and doesn’t leave residue behind.

“It was important for us to include a brine tank on the Mammoth 850, as brine is becoming more desirable among commercial operators. It’s more environmentally sustainable than traditional options,” Stephen Ariens said. “Ariens will also release more options for the vehicle, including a snow cab, hazard light kit and poly blade.”

Operator comfort is central to the design of the Mammoth 850. The operator cockpit is based on a flip-up platform with a premium foam pad you would find on snowmobiles. Heated grips come standard on the vehicle’s adjustable-speed control bar. Several controls are at the operator's fingertips, including an electric joystick for attachments, LED light switches (for its LED headlights and rear-facing lights), brine attachment switch and controls, chute cap control, PTO (power take off, like a zero-turn mower), handwarmer (on/off) and throttle control level.

“We’re excited about the Mammoth 850 and confident it will deliver,” Stephen Ariens said. “This is a mighty machine that reenforces our commitment to the commercial customer in a compact frame that will be a handy and easy to operate tool for landscapers. It’s designed to be comfortable, and if I may add, fun to work with, too.”
