Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ray stated well and crashed
this machine was awesome for the first month and then the transmission went the rider would drive but not break - once you place the unit in gear it would stay in gear . in order to stop the machine you would have to turn it off completely - sooo the warranty and repair process - authorized ariens dealer and repair are few and far between , no biggy. but then the ariens company would only replace parts which the dealer explained it needed a new transmission .3 transmissions shipped... all cracked during shipping its mid june the machine has been in repair sense april - - zero compensations accept a sorry from ariens company - my acre and a half wont mow itself .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zakatak4 Ariens A22VA46 Briggs & Stratton 46" 22HP riding mower
Mower works well and all of my previously purchased rear attachments work but, my Home Depot salesman assured me that my brand new snow plow from the winter before I bought for my Club Cadet 46",( that died )would work on this. Guess what, this riding mower does not take front attachments at all. Now I have a lovely 400.00 plow that is unusable and I don't want a snow blower(which is the snow removal attachment available for this machine). When the snow is 2ft deep my mower won't go through it for the snowblower to be efficient. Better informed salesman would have made a big difference in my purchase because I need a tractor that can plow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ratz Exactly what I was looking for
It was out of the crate and fully assembled when I picked it up from the store. It started up easily after checking the oil and filling it with gas. It is next to a ZTR in that the 16" turning radius has cut my mowing time by about an hour. The automatic transmission is also very easy to use. I am very happy with this mower.

I get my lawn cut much quicker then with my 22" push mower. I have about 3/4 of an acre to cut and with the tractor it takes me about an hour. The great thing about the tractor is that my daughter can mow the lawn with me now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissapointed Delivered dud
We got the mower a month later than we wanted. When we finally got it out of the crate that took several cuts and bruises, it was not put together fully. The connections were not attached and we can't get it started. After talking to warranty place I was told to call Carsins and have them come look at it. Carsins does not do home visit only pick up. Homedepot will not allow the to come pick up from me to be fixed. Now I am waiting on another company to call back and get a service person out. This is a nightmare and we have a $2000 piece of equipment sitting infront of our garage that doesn't work. I am beyond aggravated and frustrated. I wish I could have returned it. However I was informed it was only 30 day return policy from date of order. But we didn't get possession of the machine until after 30 days.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by crabby havn,t had enuff time to test it
took 45 minutes to get it out of the crate and the guy will not stay to inspeak it. when i got it open the battery was dead they put a 2013 battery into a new tractor, The tractor had damage on the front from shipping. The hood don,t even go into place. It was boughing out on the 10 hightest cut. It didn,t have the power i wanted. Home depo is sending me a new battery and a gift card 50 dollars . Big deal i thought they would take care of me but the short change me. but at least they are sending a battery and i got a 50 dollar gift card. that about it. I will give more feedback after i test it more.
