Is there a hitch

Asked by AJ March 14, 2013
2
Answers

Mine came with a rear plate with a hole in it for smaller landscape items like thatchers and trailers. Not a receiving hitch.

how many RPM does the blades turn

Asked by dollor April 15, 2012
2
Answers

Arien's answer of 17,800 fpm does not answer the question. The question was what is the blade RPM. To find that info, you will need to find out the length of the blade, and use this relationship: RPM = 17800/(3.1416 x L) where L is the length of the blade in feet.

IS THERE A HEATING ELEMENT OR A CHOKE ON THE ARIENS ZOOM 50 TO HELP START IT EASIER RATHER THAN CONTINOUSLY TURN THE KEY AND DRAIN THE BATTERY. I WORK

Asked by RODNEY November 28, 2012
2
Answers

You have to pull up on the gas lever, I know it sounds crazy but on mine to choke you have to pull straight up on the gas throttle to activate the choke. I even had to show the lawnmower repair guy! He didn't know that is how it operates.

The chute is not removable and the 50" width is blade from tip to tip or cutting width. The machine would measure about 55" wide with the chute tipped up.

The Little Grass Eater
Customer review from Ariens.com logo
The mower was in a crate that took forever to break down. But the work was worth the wait. The first 2 times out on the mower it took getting used to the very sensitive controls. Once mastering the controls the mower has decreased my mowing time in half to what i was doing previously. What a Grass Eater!! Love this machine.. It works great on flat surfaces. Does not like slopes or steep inclines. Waiting on the bagger which I hope will be here soon!! Then we will have the complete package ! I highly recommend this mower for a small yard service.

Good mower but
Customer review from Ariens.com logo
I love the Zoom 50, I owned it for almost 5 years, only issue is after 3 years. the throttle and choke cable are too close to the muffler causing it to break the outside case of the cables have to rig the throttle to keep it open wide, afraid the same thing will happen with no heat shield or using metals cable coverings instead of plastic, now on Friday the welds on the frame broke in the front

Exceptional quality, Golf course cut, quiet engine. On 1.5 acres it reduced my cut time by almost an hour. I have an Ariens snow blower as well and it just goes! If you want a quality product made in WI (engine and Body) pick this one!

Love this mower!
Customer review from Ariens.com logo
I spent a couple weeks researching ZTR mowers before deciding on the Ariens Zoom 50. I looked at all the box home improvement and tractor stores, but ended up buying this from a local dealer. The Ariens design is nicer and more compact than some of the other brands, and I found out that the other ZTR brands are made by the same manufacturer with different stickers on them - Ariens are their own standalone brand, made in the USA! This was my first time with a ZTR, and it took me about 1/2 of the first mowing to get used to it. But our 2 acres with about 20 trees, sandbox, well, etc. only took about 35 minutes on the first mow - it used to take over an hour with our old 46" mower! Plus the lines are perfectly straight, and the circles around the trees are perfect! My wife, who is now 8 months pregnant, insists on mowing every week. Even at 8 months pregnant, the ride is smooth enough, and it is easy enough to drive that anyone should be able to master it. I even recommended that my 80 year old father with 5 mowed acres consider getting one! After three months and a dozen mows, we haven't had a single issue - which I would hope with any new mower purchase. One thing I found is that my wife and I have now become "mower snobs" and look down on people we see mowing their lawns with standard steering wheel drive mowers! If you are thinking about getting this mower, stop thinking and get it! If you are thinking about buying a different mower, buy this one!

Customer service during the purchase was excellent. Shipping of the machine to my home address was not accomplished and I would not recommend this option to others who do not have a forklift at home to unload the machine from the common carrier! I had to borrow a neighbors trailer to pick the machine up at the Home Depot store where I had the shipment re directed.

A poor "investment"
Customer review from Ariens.com logo
Repeatedly and without apparent reason, the Hydrostatic Belt jumps off resulting in a lawnmower that cannot and does not function. I bought the mower because Gravely is an old respected name. I am hugely disappointed.

Front wheel(s) come off ground on uneven ground. Forget about mowing slopes or hill work. If you have a level yard without any holes or dips you should be fine, otherwise don't even think about this mower. Other dislike was the choke and fast/slow lever combined. Motor (Kawaski) would take 3-5 times to start the first time. After warm it would start first time. Likes were the foot operated deck raise feature, compact size, and it was quieter then my old Kohler motor, but my Kohler starts first time every time. Also bad was the small battery. Check out the small grass exit opening and determine for yourself if it is large enough for your mowing needs. On my lawn it was like riding on a roller coaster, being moved side to side and back and forth. Felt like I was driving a go cart. Have to admit that was fun but don't make for a straight cut. Also would take 3-4 times to mow down 8-10 inch tall Batchelor Button weeds.

Heavier frame, better turning capabilities, easier to use controls than previous mower. Only complaint is that the 50" mower deck was not as heavy as the 54" deck.

Excellent machine
Customer review from Ariens.com logo
This machine rocks! I have almost 2 acres and this thing makes short work of it. This is my 3rd Mower in 12 years and by far the best. My lawn looks like a golf course. Nice ride and easy to clean. I also own an Ariens snow blower. Made in America and they are are well built!
