i see its been a while since you asked this....so hopefully youre all set by now. if not- well now you have the info. i had a heck of a time figuring out what it would take to make this animal work- since the home depot ad for the 'Ariens 46 in. 22 HP Briggs and Stratton Hydrostatic Front-Engine Riding Mower ' clearly states: "Riding Mower Usage Heavy Hauling & Lawn Maintenance,Mowing,Snow Removal " but after you buy it- the Q and A's & ariens sez- cant be done... Really?? i spent 2 hrs just last nite plowing out my place and a whole cul de sac, for one- its a HOOT and for 2: this setup ROCKS! so if youve already set it up- well then youre havin as much fun as i am, if not- dont hesitate- or itll be summer !

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would Never recommend an Ariens mower!!! It good to see that this has been discontinued. We purchased this one two years ago and the Home Depot told us it was the same as the more recognized name brand sold at Lowes that our neighbor purchased. He bought his the same time and not one issue and our yards are not difficult just flat acre lots. They were completely wrong!!!! It has been in the shop three times and still has major issues. The first thing that was not working was the alternator and was fixed under the warranty, the magnets came unglued according to the servicer provider. So new battery and then it stopped working again. On the third battery for it. The second thing is the front wheel axle. It is designed to break what keeps the wheels from turn too far in and after it was fixed by authorized service provide it is doing it again. It rattles and the hood has come loose as well. The front two wheels had good tire pressure and then go out to mow and both go down and without an intertube it is difficult to get these inflated again since the rim and tire have to be completely off the ground and the tire tight enough for it to seal around the rim. You could not inflate unless you have a air compressor. Will never listen to Home Depot people again and will never purchase this brand again. August 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Lawn Tractor I've had this lawn tractor for about 6 months. Two months after purchase the battery would drain while running.I placed a volt meter on the battery cables while the engine was running and it read 12-V. Knowing it should read 14-V when running, I replaced the regulator which was a simple, easy access repair. Although warranty would cover the repair, I did it myself. Since then the tractor runs great. I installed a (Sunpro) Voltage meter and a Fuel gauge on the dash since almost all on my mowing equipment has them. It just makes operating them a little easier. January 31, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Almost impossible to get out of crate and not a happy camper. When the mower arrived, it took almost an hour to get it off crate. It says you can push it off but you can't. We used a circular saw, crow bar, and sledge hammer to break apart the bottom of the crate but could not push it out. We landed up having to lift it up and wretched my back. Then, after first mow I was not happy with loose hood that flopped around, gas peddle in awkwardly placed so that the reverse peddle digs into our ankle bone, cruise control takes a few attempts to set, and break pedal switch is very flimsy. I also did not like having to set the emergency break every time you get off. It feels like the switch will break easily. I returned this model for the hydrostatic and much happier. This time I had it delivered to store and they took it out of the crate. May 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 20 hp version i have the 20 hp version, but otherwise it's the same. i got it for 1199.00, so for the money it seems to do an outstanding job. it's the second one i bought, the first i returned because it made an awful banging noise in the engine. it sounded like the piston(s) were gonna come through the hood at any second. the second one i got was in the crate, and i was the only one to start it. i followed the directions and so far so good. May 20, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ariens 46" 22HP This is a Do Not Buy. Terrible Product The product does not perform. It is not well made. The materials and construction are faulty or inferior. I purchased in April. I used it on approximately 6 occassions. It would not start in august. It would not start in October. I have put information in the service section as appropriate. I would not recommend any of thes low end products. This is the most regrettable purchase I have ever made. Can't say enough about not spending your money on this unit. November 5, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Missing parts The mower arrived with out a manual, clean up hose attachment, or keys. It took several tries to get just the keys. We finally got a replacement headlight harness. The original one was bad. The battery was from November of 2011 and had a short. I had to go to a local dealer to get that replaced. Once all that was done the mower seems to work fine. April 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by for motor size and deck size its by far the best bang for the buck after riding it.i was so mutvh moore happy. See i got this outta box around fivehundred dollars less than the biggest copeditor. compared to get the same size tractor, deck and engine. but i was so sold on it after the wife took just one lap around the yard. The Ariens runs 5.2 mph... Its (what i call it when bragging to my budies) a Zero Turn in disqquise... highly recomended. April 18, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mower was great shipping/delivery, not so much. The mower works well, although when I got it, the battery was defective after sitting in a warehouse since May of 2011. After that was straightened out, it mowed my far overgrown lawn with no problems. April 9, 2013
