Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Riding Mower After 20 years of using a walking power mower (not self-propelled) on our five acres, purchased an Ariens riding mower. The time savings has been priceless. What used to take many hours over 2- 3 days, I can now mow in just a few hours. On the riding mower, it was delivered with a missing cotter pin and washer which held the mowing unit but Ariens customer service was very helpful and sent it right away. The mower is easy to use and handles real well. The Briggs & Stratton engine is a high quality engine. The Ariens riding mower has been well worth the money and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine! The mower works great! It does struggle a bit on really steep hills and it really does feel like you're going to fall off the mower moving across hills. I'd say if you have really steep hills, you need more HP and probably a heavier unit. That being said, my wife now LOVES cutting the grass. Thank you Home Depot for allowing me two more beers and 15 minutes extra per week. The mower does a fine job of cutting, goes at a really good speed, and is easy to maneuver. The mower's transmission is a bit jumpy so when you're just starting in either forward/reverse, be prepared to touch the pedal JUST hard enough to lock in the transmission but not too hard or you'll go flying. It takes some time to get used to. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by high quailty made mower The riding mower was set up and ready to use. the instructions were clear and easy to read. I had no problem unloading it from my truck by my self and it performed perfectly cutting my 1/2 acre lot in no time.What I like a lot about the machine is its smooth ride and how easy it is to clean with the garden hose attachment for cleaning the cutting area and blades.The mower also has a good tight turning ratio which makes it easy to cut around & in between shrubs & trees.I would recommend this mower to my friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great handling machine Have only owned for a month, but seems to be doing the job quite well. Bought it for our cabin with quite a few slopes and rough spots, really doing a great job so far. June 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First time Ariens Owner Overall Not a bad machine. I like the automatic forward and back operation. "ROS" reverse operation system. It took some time and effort to un-crate and assemble. I used a an electric saw-saw to help with removal (cut-away) of pallet wood. There were minor paint scratches from shipping. The steering wheel comes loose in the crate. It is boxed, but loosely packed in the crate with the lawn mower. The location of the fuel tank filler cap is difficult to reach. It is located in front of the steering wheel under the engine hood. The engine needs to be cooled before re-fueling due to close proximity of the fuel tank filler cap and the engine. It was a convienent purchase for me, online with free delivery. August 12, 2014
