Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Earth I really like my Max Zoom 60
20 hours on it and so far it has been very reliable. It starts up easy and runs good, it has a very nice and even cut. I have about 5 acres and It cuts ALOT faster than my Ariens 46" riding mower which BTW is a great mower as well. This 60" zero turn is the cat's meow. I believe Ariens engineering and design is the best bang for the buck. I am a mechanic and I compared the designs of many different brands and I always liked the Ariens mechanical design. This is my second Ariens mower and I had a Scott's mower before that. All of them purchased from The Home Depot.

It is too early to review this product. The new product high is still on. Ask again in three or four months

I purchased an Ariens Maxzoom 60. The frame cracked in half on both sides of the mower and drove the mower deck into the ground with only 270 hours on it. The mower was stored and maintained well.I contacted Ariens and they would do nothing to help me. I own an Ariens snowblower and it is an excellent machine, but I would recommend against purchasing an Ariens Mower.

Purchased April 2016; very pleased with it thus far. Very sturdy unit that should last a long time. About the only thing I don't like about it is the rubber guard on the deck where the grass blows out. It sticks out too far and is very stiff, which encourages the owner to remove it. Otherwise I am very pleased and it is a great mower. The Home Depot experience was terrible. It is obvious they would prefer you order on line and have it delivered to your house where they don't have to touch it.

I have been looking around for 60” zero turn mowers for a few months now and pulled the trigger on the Ariens. It seems to be solid built and the features I need, which are few, but I just wanted a solid mower and not a problem child for later on with extra gadgets to worry about. Response is great, cutting is as expected, and the Kohler engine should last me hopefully longer than I need if I do the maintenance according to manual. I purchased mine through Home Depot in Denton Texas and used military discount that I worked though Jeff, one of the managers. Kudos to Jeff for all the support and helping load this beast machine onto trailer! I have only mowed my 4 acre lot three times but cannot report any troubles other than chute does stick out quite far on right driver’s side. The rear drive tires seem fine as I don’t have inclines to mow and mostly level surface. 4 acres mowing uses (at my speed 4-5 mph) 4 or so gallons of gas which surprised me with the efficiency and consumption.

I used my MaxZoom 60 for several hrs and continue to enjoy cutting the grass. I found my self almost looking for grass to cut. I have noticed a couple of issues since my first review. My main concern is the problem I forsee when I have to change oil filter. The Kolher Courage Pro 25 has a oil filter mounted horizontally on right side of engine. Problem is there is very little room to access the filter and I can see no way to remove it unless I take something apart to get acess to it. The second issue I have found is that there is a wireloom and push/pull cables that go from the engine to the controls on right side that penetrates the frame. These cables and wireloom are binding very hard against the frame and will result in premature wear and possible failure. All said this is still the best mower I have ever used.

Owned this mower for 2 months. Cut 3 acres. Cut mowing time in half. Old craftsman is now retired. Kohler engine is great. Had one on the craftsman. Never had a problem. Change your oil every year or sooner. Love the way it turns, no more 3 point turns. Get to the end of your cut and quickly start the next. Took a cut or two to get to know how to move around things but it is easily learned. Should have bought one sooner. Price is better than most other manufactures for a 60 inch deck. Looked at other brands but Ariens was less expensive. My neighbor has a Xmark but cost $8000.00 Shopped around and bought this mower. Good price and works great.
