why no bumper wheels on cutting deck to protect against rough ground?

This mower is the lowest cost mower that is sold at Home Depot. One of the options slected to not be included for the price were the anti-scalp wheels. Wheels can be added to the back of the mower deck which I have listed below. Please contact the authorized Ariens Service Dealer to purchase the parts. To find a dealer please go to webiste click on Where to Buy, enter zip code click search, click Service and Parts and this will give you the dealers that can assist with parts.

19hp kohler oil filter

does 19 hp engine have spin on oil filter? if not is there a kit available?
Asked by: Anonymous
I do not have information as to if the model engine has an oil filter if it does it will be a spin on. If it does not an oil filter there is nothing available to add it to the engine, it would not be needed.

is this a heavy duty tractor that can be used on slopes?

Asked by: Anonymous
Will do 1 to two acres of grass. Any more will require the 46" Kohler V-twin engine with more hp. I do 1 acre of 6-8 of grass or more every 2-3 weeks with no problem. It will tackle some high slopes. Make sure you ride up and down not side ways. small slopes are a breeze even side ways without tipping over.

42 in. 19 HP Kohler Automatic Gas Front-Engine Riding Mower is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than the John Deere D110 I considered Most difficult task was uncrating he mower after getting it out and into the garage I leveled the deck went over the mower from front to back double checking everything for tightness. Checked the oil level added fresh gas it's started right up. Mower has performed like a champ I have almost an acre to mow and have a dump trailer. I have been hauling tree cut tree limbs and clearing our rear yard area absolutely no issues with the unit. Awesome machine for the price!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steering is very low effort, & low play. Features I want, yet much lower cost. Hood is painted steel which can rust in it's old age. I can't believe how flat the lawn is even right after mowing. My earlier 46" and 30" riders left deeper tire lines. The shipping carton was far more than necessary requiring lots of effort to open and throw away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Experience Had no luck with this riding mower. Bought at Home Depot. The first one delivered would not even start at all. The second they brought out gave us two lawn cuts then likewise refused to start again. Followed advice on possible problems but had no success whatsoever in starting again. This time sent the mower #2 back to HD and had them deliver a John Deere (more expensive machine but no problems at all). Recognition to Home Depot at Streetsboro for excellent responsive service in terms of replacing the first mower then picking up the second and then transferring payments easily between mowers and providing 3 deliveries for the cost of only one. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I have about 3 hours on it. I found it has a CVT transaxle even though it has a 2 pedal system like a hydrostatic. ( Not as smooth as a hydrostatic ) I did a lot of research before I bought this Airens/Kohler tractor made by Husqvarna, not Like most made by MTD. Plenty of power and runs great! Home Depot has been great to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of features for a great price. Very reliable. Has proven to be more reliable than John Deere products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good mower for the money bought a cub cadet mower with briggs engine. After two years, the motor blew. Cost over $700 for a new motor, five years later, another briggs motor blew. Bought this mower online, and right away, I new I had a much better machine. By the way, this mower was $400 cheaper from the one I bought over 7 years ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for the money Got this mower last winter online and started it in the spring. It started right up and has not had any issues since purchase. The 4 anti-scalp wheels are great for keeping an even cut. Very happy with my purchase.
