Answer: 
Hello this is Tangelo from the Home Depot Community!
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of control and tip-over accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. Operation on all slopes requires extra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on it, do not mow it.
Mow up and down slopes (15° Max), not across.
I hope this helps, if you have any more questions you can Read More

Answer: 
It takes half the time to cover the same area and you don't end up with sweaty, smelly clothes or a sore back. In my opinion, about 1/2 acre is the break-even point for a riding mower versus a push mower.

Bought mine 4 years ago and have had no mishaps. Wasn't aware that the mower had been discontinued at HD. Arien is a quality made and highly rated mower, so it and replacement parts will be available somewhere.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shocking...... My son purchased this mower for me for father's day last year. What a disappointment it has been. It broke down the very first time I used it, and again 2 weeks later. To date I have had to repair this machine 8 times. We read all the reviews for this mower, and they were great, so I don't know what happened with my mower. November 26, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ariens 42" Riding Mower Love the Ariens 42" riding mower. Had to replace a 14 yr. old Poulan. Ordered on a Sunday evening and was delivered on Tuesday and placed right in the garage.. GREAT customer service! Unpacked with no issues, ran thru all the check points as suggested. Only had to adjust tire pressure and mower height and was good to go. Has good power and manuerability. It cuts SO even, there's no digging into the turf, no scapling ... lawn looks like a carpet! It performs great on the 3/4 to 1 acre lot I have. I would definitely recommend the Ariens. It's American made and that makes me proud. August 8, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IT'S A PRETTY ORANGE!! THOUGH IT'S A "LEMON" IT'S BEEN IN THE SHOP MORE THAN ITS BEEN HERE TO USE.EVERYTIME WE START IT,WE END UP ON THE PHONE TO FIND A REPAIR SHOP.WE WERE ASK..WHY DIDNT YOU COMPLAIN FRM.,NOV-APRIL? WELL WE DONT CUT THE GRASS WITH SNOW ON IT!! FIRST USE_STEARING WHEEL CAME OFF,2ND USE THE MOWING DECK CRACKED/3RD,NEW BELT BROKE,4TH USE MOTOR BLOWS,5TH USE,FOUND THE NEW MOTOR THEY PUT IN ONLY HAD 3 SCREWS TO HOLD THE ENGINE IN PLACE.6TH USE STEARING WHEEL CAME OFF AGAIN,7TH USE THE BELT BREAKS AGAIN,8TH USE,NEW MOTER BLOWN AGAIN?? NO MORE USING IT-SELLING IT FOR $10.00,JUST TO GET IT OUT OF OUR FACE!! October 7, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine for a medium to large lawn The machine started immediately after it was uncrated and filled with gas. There was a little initial smoke but that cleared within 3 to 4 seconds. Having read the previous reviews, I was careful not to let off the brake too abruptly and didn't experience the jerky start that had been described by others. It has a great turning radius and the cut-while-backing-up feature is excellent for those places where the turn radius is too tight. I'm very happy to say I can now mow my entire yard in about 90 minutes when it used to take 5 sweaty hours spread across two days! October 26, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice after looking at all the riding lawnmowers i decided to get this one.. (cost mainly). I had to adjust the deck and anti scalping wheels which was pretty easy. Procedure is in the manual. The engine pop pops a little when cold at idle.. but the manual says not to go to idle when cold keep throttle full off choke and it doesn't do it there. over all I like this mower.. powerful and smooth with bight headlights:) I also got 10 percent off by purchacing on the internet via chat with helper. May 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Real happy It ran real good from the start. I took it out of the crate and checked the oil and added just a bit. I put gas in and ran it. I don't have it mastered yet but so far I really like it. I adjusted those wheels that help prevent scalping. I feel it has good safety features. Customer service was great and it was delivered right into my garage for me to uncrate it. My neighbor has an old Ariens and that encouraged me to get one too. June 28, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 42 inch cut 19 hp kohler is nice Have to say i love this mower with 2 exceptions.what genius set the max. mowing height to 4 inches and why would you take away the forward and reverse foot pedals and make it into a hand operated lever. that one still baffles me.but overall is a well made mower and runs great has made mowing into a pleasure for me anyway.with 2 noted exceptions i would still recommend this mower .the best value for the money. October 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top of the line Tractor Bought this Tractor two years ago. Starts every time. Can't beat the power and ease of use, especially how it turns and takes the hills and slopes. Especially like the twin blades. Began using Pennzoil SAE 30 and the factory Kohler oil filter and the tractor seems to have more power. .I'm sure glad I purchased my Tractor from Homedepot where I also receive that special assistance. The Edgewood store always pampers us. June 9, 2011
