Answer: 
Yes and no, although it has two handles, one for the engine and one for the clutch, the engine can only run if you keep pressing the motor handle or if you tie that handle to the frame, which I only do when at the end of the season I want the motor to run until the tank is empty, so I would not recommend doing that while you pick up sticks.

Answer: 
Yes. The engine bulb primer is located on the left side at the front of the engine, as you are behind the mower. I usually give my mower ptimper bulb three pumps and it starts right up.

Answer: 
There are individual height adjustment on each of the 4 wheels, however, beware that the maximum cutting height is about 2.5 inches and there is no way to modify the wheels for a higher cut, for me that is too short, especially for summer hot days, so I am selling my unit just for that issue.

Can this lawn mower be stored vertically, on the two back wheels?

Earlier Ariens lawn mowers that look like this one had a special handle that folded flat with two supports near the rear wheels. The lawn mower could be stored vertically taking only about a foot along a wall.

It is not recommended to store this mower in the vertical position as the oil will get into areas of the engine where it should not be.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Quality has deteriorated; won't buy another one... I had an earlier version of this mower several years ago and it was a GREAT mower... When I moved, I sold it to a friend. Worst mistake I ever made. Now, the same mower has turned into a so-so mower due to Ariens cheapening the product. Plastic wheels with an extremely hard rubber tread are not the quality one would expect from a push mower costing approximately $775. Found a mower of the same "former" quality with steel/ball bearing wheels. Sad, however, that the company sacrificed quality rather than perhaps increasing the price slightly so as not to resort to cheap plastic wheels prone to break frequently. May 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice heavy duty lawn mower! The mower itself is a bit heavy but with the swivel wheels makes it easy to maneuver around in tight landscaping. So far very happy and starts first time every time. Price is higher than most, but this lawn mower is built to last and with the Kawasaki motor it should run for a long time. June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Waiting to use it. When the rain finally stopped, we got the opportunity to use the product. Takes some getting use to, but over all I believe the choice was a good one. A little on the heavy side, but we can adjust to that. May 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cable problem I have had this mower over 2 years. I have had to replace my power cable three times May 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bought this to replace the same model I first bought 16 years ago. First one still works but wanted a new one. Undoubtedly the finest made. Best lawnmower I have ever had, and I am 73 years old, so I have had a few. Swivel front wheels make following the landscape blocks and curbs so easy. Lots of power. If you put it on a faster speed you would have to jog to keep up with it, maybe even run. Starts first pull every time. Even the 16 year old one starts first pull. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A true work horse!!! This mower will power through anything, North Florida grass is thick and dense. This mower will mow the highest grass. I also have a Honda lawn mower and Ariens is a much better mower. It is over 15 years old and the only thing that has failed is the rear wheels have worn out. I just purchased a new set for $66 and it like a new mower again. This mower starts EVERY TIME on the FIRST PULL! March 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ariens 21 in. Classic Swivel Wheel Walk Behind Lawn Mower I love the engine and transmission in combination with the swivel front wheels. I love this machine. It is heavy but very well built and very easy to maneuver with the swivel wheels. No lifting the front to turn. I have owned an Ariens mower for a few years that I bought used, but this is my first new one. My son and brother love this mower as much as I do. It is very easy to start, Just prime and pull once and you are ready to roll. Unlike other self-propelled mowers that you really have to push along, this machine pulls its own weight and is a breeze. Best mower that I have ever owned November 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just the best! My current model just finished it's third season as good as new. It was a replacement for an almost identical one that lasted me 20 years! I was able to buy the standard model and transfer the front swivel wheels from the old one! It is American made and you can call their HQ to ask technical questions and have them answered is a super plus! December 7, 2015
