Customer Questions & Answers

my lawntractor is hard statrting and seems to not be getting gas. Is there a choke adjustment or fuel pump test I can run?

Asked by: Anonymous
If your fuel tank is by the steering wheel check that the gas line does not go below the level of the carborator or have a kink in it. If you fuel tank is under the seat disconnect the gas line beyond the fuel pump and turn the key on to see if the fuel is coming through. If these two tests work o.k. and the lawn tractor still does not start please contact a Home Depot or Ariens repair service.

can someone post instructions on how to start this? ariels tractor 22 hp v twin

Asked by: Anonymous
1) You have to be seated, If not it won't crank. 2) Push the throttle level all the way up. 3) Make sure the movement level (the one that make it move forward or reverse) is in the middle. 4) Deprees the brake, clutch,foot level all the way down. 5) Crank it and once it start (the engine) move the throttle level a little bit down so you won't flood the carburator. If you stand from the sit, it will shut down.

42 in. 22 HP Briggs & Stratton V-Twin Engine Hydrostatic Riding Mower-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money I'm not going into the technical specs as they are listed on this site. They speak for themselves. My budget wasn't large and I feel that I got the best I could for the money with this Ariens. I own an Ariens 926 snow thrower that has been serving me well so I consider Ariens products to be good quality and value. It wasn't easy to get Ariens accessories but I purchased a trailer, yard vac, and yard roller from other companies that work with it. I added my own Tachometer, Volt Guage and Hour guage so now I have the same guages like more expensive mowers. I've used the mower and it is a pleasure to drive, has plenty of power. I've spun the wheels a couple of times giving it too much gas to quickly. It has the exact same engine that my Dad's John Deer has but with improvements to the design. I have a medium sized yard and can do it much faster than with my old mower. The larger deck means less trips to do the job. I wasn't sure about the lever for driving but now that I'm used to it; I wouldn't be without it. Overall, I really like my new Ariens Lawn mower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mower This product came assembled as they said it woud. I think the instructions for initial starting could be a little more clear but all in all it did not take long to get it out of the crate and get it running. We used the mower for the first time after a few days of rain and it was great. It starts easy and performs well. The tractor is comfortable and easy to maneuver. Shipping was free as they said it would be, it came in a few days, and the delivery company was very accomodating. They contacted us ahead of time and arrived when they said they would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features Bought and picked up at store, all assembled,added gas and go.Have used for 1 3/4 problems. compared to "other" Green brand this machine had V-2 engine sealed bearings on blades and gas tank fill in better location, all for less money. Very easy to use, tight turn radius. Have medium size lawn but back yard will be in this spring. This will make a large yard do-able for 70 yr old man. Also has always been easy to start and runs very smooth. Plenty of power for the mowing deck, you don't have to run "wide open" to do a smooth cut, and it will cut wet grass. The hydro drive is great.I would and have recommended this machine to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a machine Had a JD with a 46 in cut and the deck was to big for my uneven yard, so I did some research and found the Aries 42 and I am so glad I did! It will climb like no other I have owed and mows great. I love it, and it cuts great. You will not be unhappy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mower but ... I love this mower - it is well built and seems to be quality. The 22HP engine means I can mow tall grass at pretty much full speed. Hills are not a problem. The only issue that I had was that when I received the mower the blades wouldn't engage. After much frustration and many calls I finally figured out the problem myself: there was a bent pin on the switch for "electric blade engagement". Once I bent that back and it made a good electrical connection it worked just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO GLAD WE PURCHASED THIS!! We love this mower. It has the power we need to mow our acreage and all the features we need. The walk thru deck is so much easier than raising the leg to get on. And the blade button is soooo much easier than a handle to activate. And the clean out really works. We can't say enough good things about this product!! (This replaced a 42" Huskee)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's got the right stuff. I'm pleased with all the features especially the quiet powerful engine. This machine is well engineered. You can easily access all service components and the controls are placed within easy reach. It cranks right up every time, the ride is comfortable, handling is smooth and although the steering isn't as tight has some other mowers, it's more than adequate for me. Personally I think super tight steering tempts you to get too close to trees and other objects and puts more stress on the steering linkage. Once you've properly adjusted the mower deck, deck wheels, and tire inflation (all easy to do), the Ariens leaves a nice even cut. Don't trust the factory deck settings! Overall this Ariens mower is a great machine. Now the test of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT MACHINE FOR MONEY This is update on machine Ive used for 3 summers,and it has performed great. I like the power it has with the 42" deck, you dont have to run the engine wide open for good cut,usually 1/2 throttle is good. Only problem has been 1 broken spindle which was my fault,too wide of turn into rough and hit a rock. My mower has the 2 cylinder B/S engine and it always starts easily. Some reviewers have complained about hard starting....Just make sure choke is FULLY engaged and it starts easily.Parts are easy to come by online..several companies carry them with good service..VERY satisfied would buy it again.......
