Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! October 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as expected This tractor mower is working great on my 6 acres. Pros: The sixth gear is pretty quick. The turn radius is not bad. Cleanup is easy with the water hose connection and a leaf blower. Have not noticed any drifting (other reviews online said this unit drifted bad...I have not seen that, it goes straight for me.) Cons: Some parts feel like they may not last like parts on the seat and the steering wheel. Sixth gear is fast but can almost throw you off! Cannot change gears while moving. Cannot reverse cut (at least not with ease). July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NOISE PROBLEM Measured DB at 118 will be heard half mile away, you better have good ear protection. July 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOWS GREAT I have 1 acre of mixed grass and weeds. This mower hasn't failed to start or cut evenly. I have went through the first set of blades already and haven't had an issue with it yet. It is identical to my grandpa's Husqvarna mower. This is made by Husqvarna. If you are looking for a residential mower this is the one. Would not recommend for heavy commercial use though. July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 7, 2015
