A17KG42 42 in. 17-HP KOHLER 6-Speed Gas Front-Engine Riding Mower is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too early to tell Too early to tell. I like the features and the engine and the price for all of these together. Kind of funny the deck has Husqvana printed on it (I gather Ariens is owned by Husqvana?) I live on a very hilly lot so far the mower with it's pressure lubrication instead of splash is great. The engine size is plenty, I towed a small cart behind with bags of lime the other day with no loss of power up the hill. The turn radius isn't small so fyi but this is my first lawn tractor so that might be common with the type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lawnmower! I don't need a man around to start this lawnmower! A quick turn of the key and I am off. I cut my yard, (just over an acre), my neighbor's yard, and anyone else in the neighborhood who needs it. I love this lawnmower. It cuts well and mulches, it turns well, it goes up and down hills and it mows while in reverse, plus it is good on gas. Most importantly, I don't need a man around to use this lawnmower!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from She needs some make-up This mower preforms well and meets my needs and expectations......However....The factory shipped it with TWO big blemishes on the paint. I know that they shipped it this way as the bad spots were revealed after removing the protective over wrap. The wrap and shipping crate were pristine upon delivery, so.....kudos to the shipping company. My tractor already looks well worn due to this as well as future lower trade-in value. I would buy this mower again....I will trust that this review will help the paint quality issue in the future. This issue should not even exist.....don't open up the barn door to let'em out boys if they are not perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was purchased for someone else... Shipping was great...bought this out of season to give as a gift which is why it took a while to do the review but so far- so good. No complaints from the person it was purchased for- in making the decision to purchase this mower we looked at the features of the mower for the price compared to a few other stores and the yard space it would be used for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed (Mowing in Reverse) I have an acre of property, with many areas that require mowing while in reverse gear. All the other tractors I looked at either had no option to mow in reverse, or had an override button that had to be activated each time I wanted to mow in reverse. This tractor has a setting on the ignition switch that allows me to cut in reverse anytime I need to. My only disappointment is that the hood is slightly misaligned, and I can't yet seem to adjust it to where it will stay straight. Otherwise, this tractor does what I expected, does it quite well and was a great value for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the cost! We had this mower delivered to our house; toughest part was getting the crate open. Otherwise, very easy and quick to assemble. This is a tough little mower with more than enough power to handle hills and thick grass. The tight turning radius is great and saves lots of time. The mow-in-reverse feature is very nice, although the reverse speed is much too slow for my taste. The clutch is a bit sensitive and will send you flying until you get used to it. All in all, it seems to be a well-made product which gets the job done at a very good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ariens mower 17hp Kohler This is a great mower. Cuts very good. Just a basic rider. This replaced my 30 year old Craftsman rider.The 17hp Kohler seems to be ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over all, performs well as exected. Performs well as expected. Deck height adjustment lever is higher than needs to be in top position. when getting off mower i get cought up on it. Also noise level could be improved with a better muffler. One of the main features i like is it has a kohler engine. All in all it does a nice job of mowing on about 1&1/2 acres of lawn.
