Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great mower, but hindered by annoying overlooks The Kawasaki engine is everything the sales reps tell you it will be. Great engine. The Ariens Zoom XL 42 is built like a brick house with assumed attention to engineering... BUT! It has incredibly annoying vibration noises from loose fitting parts. I at first thought i had a pulley that was bad straight from the factory, but shut the mower down-looked underneath and saw that the washers were simply vibrating so badly that they were making the sound of a broken part. I removed each one individually, cut and attached single sided sticky tape foam to each washer and re-attached them. This made an incredible difference. It is relatively annoying to spend nearly $3,600 on a brand new mower and have to climb underneath and re-engineer it to keep it from sounding like its tearing itself apart. Hydrolics and other mowing performance is outstanding. I would def suggest this unit to a friend... along with a role of foam tape and an understanding of about 45 minutes worth of personal work to fix the vibration sounds. August 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by cut my mowing time of my 2 acres by 1/3 compared to my old mower has 3 blade heavy duty mower deck, not 2 blade stamped deck like the "RED" mower. cuts heavy grass at high speed like a dream. Foot pedal to raise deck, multiple hieght ajustment, anti scalp wheels on deck. May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by As I expected, and more Still have my 1999 ZT, and it still works. That is why I bought this new unit. This unit is simply incredible. I thought the old one was good. the new unit feels like you are gliding on air, and the fit and finish is just super. Being an Aerospace inspector, my standards, and expectations are pretty high, and boy, Ariens did not disappoint. If I ever lost my job, I think I would like to work there. This has got to be one class act of an organization.. Thanks for the great equipment, and quality. Do not loose focus, and cheapen the product as some of your competitors have done... Carry on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by very pleased Bought the unit about a year ago and after that length of usage found the machine to be very efficient and easy to use. It does a very nice job of cutting and the zero turn cuts down on the time involved. In wetter conditions the back tires will bite into the turf a little, so a few extra minutes are with it. Although pleased with the cutting performance, would like to see better height adjustment selection. The highest levels work fine, but lower setting seem to scalp (and I have a fairly level lot).

Rated 4 out of 5 by zoom xl42 is a solid stable machine The machine is built to last and easy to maintain for those items requiring regular attention. Access to blades could be improved for the home mechanic however. When used in dirty conditions the lower cutter spindle bearings deteriorate even though they are sealed. Could a grease nipple be incorporated for manual greasing to keep up the internal pressure. (maybe) Again, in dirty conditions the machine throws dust and debris out in front which comes back at the operators eyes. OK goggles would fix this but if design could minimise this it would be nice. June 21, 2012
