Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarolJanene Best riding mower for the money
My son and I had just been waiting for that old push mower to break, and it finally did. We knew that a riding mower was the way to go, as our yard is almost an acre. We searched the web, not knowing which brand we should get. We wanted quality, high enough horsepower , and a reasonable price. We read all information on this mower, and also read some reviews by customers. We had no problem deciding on this mower. Our property has some up and downs, this mower did great no problems. We live in Florida and it rains a lot, so the grass grows fast. Thanks so much for making this great mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnco Ariens 42" riding lawn mower
It was my first Ariens purchase. The process of ordering it online at HomeDepot.com was easy. What prompted me to purchase it was the number of great reviews. The shipment arrived to my home in a nice wooden crate. It only required me to mount the steering wheel and seat, which wasn't difficult. It took me about 30 minutes. Other than that, you only had to add gas. The oil was already added. Note: I didn't have to place a trickle charge on the battery given the battery date was well within the month I received it , otherwise you would.I've used it 3 times already on 1/3 acre suburban lot. I love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadyDi Great mower for the value and features
This is a great riding mower. Have used it twice and it lives up to everything promised. It's easy to operate and all the features are awesome. Cuts the lawn low like I like it using the adjustment feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eagledancer Just cranked it flawlessly for its third season
I bought this mower 2 years ago and has been the sole workhorse to keep over an acre mowed. We pulled it out of storage today and cranked it without fail to begin its third season. If you want fancy, then look somewhere else, but if you want dependability and performance for a price that cannot be beat, then drive down and pick this one up. Granted, there will be good machines made by bad companies and bad machines made by good companies. There are too many folks with good results for my experience to be the exception. I would buy it again, but I doubt that will have to happen any time soon...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skipper Buy This Lawn Mower
I'm an experienced tractor user and really did my homework before buying this model. Among other features, this has a 42 inch cut, very quiet engine, sharp turning radius and turn the key once to allow you to mow in reverse all day long! It also doesn't have an oil filter or automatic transmission - aside from adding to the cost, these items just add to the list of things that could go wrong. You want to spend your time mowing and not at the repair shop, right? This mower is great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very Impressed
Just purchased this tractor and I am impressed with the ease of steering and the tight turning radius. This is a manual gearbox but very easy to operate. It cuts extremely well and the Briggs and Stratton 17.5 hp engine is the quietest I have ever heard in a lawn tractor. It is a sturdy mower and can handle just about anything thrown at it in the way of mowing. And it will cut while in reverse if you need it to which is great. For the price.....and based upon what you need this mower is a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rfeierbach A great little mower with full features and plenty of power...
I've had this mower for about 4 weeks.
Pluses: Plenty of power for any job even uphills (fine for my 3 acres), does not swallow much gasoline, and the mowing in reverse feature is great for doing tight spots or in corners -and the machine knows to go very slow in reverse mode too..! Mower has a metal engine cover, which has already come handy against cracking (like plastic cover models) due to impact with heavy tree branches or walls. A GREAT mower for around $1000, comparable to a $1400 John Deere.
Cons: Must be VERY careful with letting off brake pedal on 5-6th speed, because the mower goes flying forward. This is something that you can master after a while.
