Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ariens lawn tractor 19hp 42 blade Good mower, rated very good, I had mine shipped and was able to get it out of the crate., but it was some work. Had a rough time getting the seat on, it kept moving on me, but I got it. Only real complaint is filling the gas tank. They need to raise the gas tank opening or move it more forward. Glad I got this mower. The auto transmission is good but you have to remember to pull your foot back off the gas when stopping. I wanted to press down with my right foot, like on the brake in a car and sped up until I got used to it. Brake is on the left foot. I'd almost like to see those two reversed. Its more natural to press down with right foot in a panic situation. April 14, 2015

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower so far I went to the store in Crescent city ca 95531 to buy this mower. I waited 20 mins to talk to the sale man that was there talking to a friend of his. So I ask him if they would take it to my home 20 miles away for free. He said NO it would be $125 or $150. :( So went home ordered it on line. Got it in less than two weeks. It can from s.c. and was delivered for FREE. Very happy with it so far. And when I was at the store looking at the Mower. There was kids jumping and climbing all over the Mower I was looking at. It was the same price at the store and on line. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent Not crazy about the position you have to keep your foot on pedal to move forward. It could be down more so that you foot could rest on the floor board. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little mower Fuel tank is a little difficult to fill. Great little mower and has served me very well. June 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good bang for the buck, Purchased this brand new in crate(Highly recommend as floor models are subject to kids playground when they are brought into store) be prepared to have a trailer or large truck bed as uncrating this off of a fork lift was a job in itself. However once loaded up it was great. Actually light enough two adults can lift unit out of a F150. However went to install seat on tractor and noticed one of the plastic clips was broken. Called Home Depot and they swapped a good seat for mine (old seat went onto a floor model go figure) So far had this for almost 7 months and it's been great. No complaints about how the product performs. I am a 330lbs dude and use this unit on 5 plus acres a week and it hasn't failed me yet. Drinks fuel though. March 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good mower for the price. I bought this mower because my old (81 model) John Deere 317 finally gave up the ghost. This happened in the late summer and nobody had any mowers in stock. I finally decided on the Ariens because of the price and availability. I originally ordered a smaller, 40 inch model, but, after waiting several weeks for delivery, I was told that the mower was damaged in shipment and no more were available. In desperation I ordered the 42 inch mower. It arrived promptly and has been working fine. I have used the mower four or five times now and am pleased with its performance. Time will tell if it deserves a higher or lower rating but, so far, I have been more than satisfied. The Home Depot Customer Service staff has been very helpful throughout this process and deserve to be complemented on their performance. December 9, 2014
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.
