Answer: 
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.

Factory fit Kohler oil filter can be purchased at any Walmart at a discounted price. They are Yellow in color. Older version was black. works great! One more item that is important. I tried several types of oil and finally found Castrol GTX-10W-30 works the best. And always make sure the drain is tight. They tend to leak at the treaded area of the block.

Factory fit Kohler oil filter can be purchased at any Walmart at a discounted price. They are Yellow in color. Older version was black. works great! One more item that is important. I tried several types of oil and finally found Castrol GTX-10W-30 works the best. And always make sure the drain is tight. They tend to leak at the treaded area of the block. If you see oil leaking in or around the engine after changing the oil, remove the drain plug and clean the threads and wrap several strains of Teflon tape around the threads and tighten. Finally, if after a year should the tractor seem to lack speed up a hill, not to worry. There are two springs that need to be replaced. To check this while going up a hill or to gain more speed try pulling back on the Brake Pedal. IF the tractor power or speed increases you'll have to replace these springs. Read Less

Answer: 
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.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by POOR QUALITY!!!!! Very poor quality. Wife mowed the yard twice and something went wrong with the transaxle and the warranty claim was denied. Ariens failed to stand behind their product and i'm out over $800 bucks. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SAVE TIME AND AGGRAVATION Unit broke twice in 10 months. (Enigine not drivetrain issues) Is not a reliable unit. I expected more out of a Briggs and Stratton. Two warranty claims and no unit for months dealing with the claims. Engine siezed first time,(some sort of internal spring broke $395 claim) then a crank but no start mid run after shutting off to take a break. I got rid of it after that. This mower was junk. Brand new and so many issues?? Take the 1200 and buy something higher end and avoid the hassle. April 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!!! April 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great deal for the price The seat alone sold me. I have had major back surgery and it is the most comfortable mower in the store. The steering is very easy and smooth. I have the Briggs and Stratton engine but I have never had a problem with Briggs. You take care of them and they will take care of you. Oil is cheap, change it often! And dont let it set out in the weather. Mower height adjustment is kinda in the way getting on and off the mower, and the gas tank is kinda hard to get to, but I can deal with it. Great mower for the price. I actually paid $1149.00 for mine July 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst tractor ever Repalced a 24 yr old Craftsman with this Ariens tractor. Only 4 yrs old and engine is blown I have many pieces of power equipment that are over 20 yrs old. I take care of my power tools. Why did this fail after only 4 yrs. Poor quality. Totally worthless. Will never buy Ariens equipment again Ironically; I sell this equipment but never again. October 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ariens Mower The only real downside is the automatic transmission. You have no way to rest your right leg if your foot's on the gas pedal. The way the machine is configured you must hold your right foot in the air the entire time the mower is being used in the forward mode. There is no way to rest the heel of the foot on anything while the foot is in the gas pedal thus necessitating keeping the right foot/leg held up in the air the entire time the mower is in use. DJB 6/24/2014 June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like this riding mower I have had it for about a year now. no problems yet. cuts great and the washout port is great cleans all the grass out. my wife finds it easy to use. October 24, 2014
