Rated 4 out of 5 by Grass cutting Monster Love it cut my grass time in half Bad the seat to slick you will have a hard time in it as you turn you will slide around . November 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This mower is easy to use. This mower is much quieter than previous mowers. The steering is phenomenal and the safety features are great. I have a hilly yard and this mower never loses traction. The maintenance routine of the engine and mower is simple and easy. It's great. Jim W. October 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome price on terrific product Going on two years of untroubled service. Beats the competitions tight turn mower with same engine and features for nearly a grand less. My only complaint is the deck sets very low to the ground, even on the highest setting so it might scalp the yard if you have allot of irregular bumps. My favorite thing is the constantly variable transmission, controlled by the lever on the right, you can easily slow to a crawl for those really tight, close turns, the speed up, where the grass isn't very deep to reduce mowing time. Has plenty of power to mow even the thickest grass on one pass. I really appreciate HD's military discount also. October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like this much better than my Grandparents D100 This mower is the real deal, Ben and the guys over at the North Spokane location really know how to treat a customer. There was some delay in shipping, but it was a supplier issue. They took great care of me, and I could not be happier with this mower! It has turned mowing my full acre yard into something I look forward to doing. This mower has a ton of power, and does not hesitate at all no matter how tall the grass. Handled my field mowing without issue as well. Also, I recommend going with a pull behind sweeper as apposed to a bagger, it picks up much more grass, and has a wider range of applications.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware of the lemon My 46" Ariens mower is a lemon. It is a 2011 and has only been in service for 3 northern summers, or said another way less than 100 hours. The spindle was replaced because the blades were vibrating and hitting the mower deck. Now I have serious issues with the B&S engine. The engine now needs to be overhauled and rebuilt. Dont buy this product. My mower started these problems weeks after the 3 year warranty. Don't buy don't buy don't buy. August 25, 2014
