When flames started pouring from the front of Joseph Cadeau's house in Diorite, MI, neighbor Steve Liubakka tried to help extinguish it with a chemical fire extinguisher, but was finally able to control the flames with a snowthrower. An Uppermichiganssource.com report said Liubakka blew 16 inches of snow at the front window of the house where the fire started.

Ariens did not design the 32-inch cut, 13 hp snow thrower for fire fighting applications. Still, “We felt he deserved some sort of recognition for his resourcefulness,” says Dan Ariens, president and CEO of Ariens Corp. “Replacing his old snow thrower with a new Ariens Sno-Thro just seemed fitting.”

Dan Ariens personally delivered a new Pro 32 Sno-Thro to Liubakka, who had actually used his son-in-law’s Sno-Thro to control the fire. Liubakka's own snow thrower was 36 years old.

Ariens said the story generated a flood of emails and calls to the company from around the country.
