There was miscommunication from Ariens about the delivery, unpacking and setup of the mower. I ended up doing it all myself. It should have been done by an "authorized Ariens Dealer" according to the Ariens information video on the Home Depot web page from which I purchased the mower. Make sure you understand how their delivery policy affects your location.
Once setup, fueled up and ready to go, this mower did a great job cutting the thigh-deep grass on my acreage. It has the power and maneuverability to handle all the terrain I ran it on. It's heavy duty and a solid hard working machine.

Further to my earlier review the cause became more clear when installing the replacement part. I found the belt finger to be installed between the flanged bushings along with the tension spring, resulting in the tension spring being bound up and unable to move on the bushing. Thus the spring had to bend as the tensioner moved when engaging the clutch. I assembled it properly and the spring can now rotate on the flanged bushing.

First zero turn, wish i had bought this mower sooner. I mow about 2 1/2 ac of fairly rough lawn with a lot of exposed tree roots,rocks, and dust. This machine handles it all. owned it three years and it hasn't stumbled once. Just do good maintenance, and i think this is a keeper.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ericl Great mower !!
I have had this mower for 3 years and it had worked flawless. Fast enough, smooth to steer, great motor with the Kohler. Wish there was a bit more suspension for the money but that's why they make the Gravely. You won't be disappointed with this machine. I cut 1.5 acres of grass twice a week.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Martin Mower is great.
Brought home and hooked up batt and controls. Did not come with bolts for battery.. dont think that it was the manufactures fault, bag with bolts was open. Checked fluids and filled with with fuel. Started with ease. Mowed 3 acres with ease. Only problem I had was the front tire came off rim. Should have checked the tire pressure. Rides and mows great. dosnt use much fuel. I think its a keeper.

I purchased this mower in the spring of 2013, it has been the best lawn mower that I have ever owned. It has reduced my mowing time to about a quarter of the previous mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mario Mowed once over the weekend, good mower, seems strong and sturdy.
Not a bad mower. Will take some getting used to. Overall, I am impressed, but mower could used a little more quality. Engine is powerful. My grass had gone 3 weeks without mowing due to last Stanley mower quitting. The Ariens Kohler engine bogged down a little in grass knee high, but breezed through shin-high grass. Left a good cut though. The ride is comfortable, but I noticed a bumping sound coming from front tires whenever I would hit bumps. It seems to me, the tires are not snuggly bolted to the frame, but maybe they are supposed to be loose so that they can turn better. One handle grip is slightly higher than the other handle. Steering came preset pretty well though. The air filter could be better. Only a paper filter covers the breather. I cut foam, lightly oiled it and placed it under the paper filter over the breather hole, as I mow in very dusty conditions. The mower cranked with ease, the PTO engaged easily, and the mower responded well to turns. The engine is very loud and it guzzles the gas, but this mower really cuts the grass. It was shooting clippings 10-12 feet out the side. The gas guage was helpful in this case so you don't get stranded out on your acreage and have to walk to get the gas can. For $4000, it was not a bad deal, but could improve in small issues. I also like the accessability to the pullys through the floor board and grass, dirt and other debris had a hard time clumping on the deck. I used a blower and it cleaned easily. 4.5 out of 5.
