Consumer Reviews and Complaints

Pricey but you get what you pay for in quality and this is a high quality mower. Again, you get what you pay for cuts. Amazing and reliability is second to none. Very safe mower, I've had no issues whatsoever, always felt safe when operating this mower. Does it all with ease and no complications. It's actually fun to mow your lawn. Fast and razor sharp, close cut, makes it do any job of any length with ease. I love this mower, I just can't say it enough. I'll never go back to John Deere. I've cut fields with this mower and had no issues or repairs to speak of. It's invincible, just change the oil, sharpen the blades when you're supposed to. Routine maintenance is all that's required.

Real good value. The mower is wonderful. I use it when I get a chance. If I was you I would get one. It does a wonderful job cutting grass. Blades are the best. The safety features are really wonderful. Kids would not get hurt unless they are really smarter than the mower. My kids have never got hurt on ours. The mower's speed is amazing. I put it on the highest speed and go. It is a really wonderful mower and I would suggest everybody has one. Durability is great but not as good as it should be. Should be more effective but is not. But in all I love the mower. Durability is important but in this case it's OK because its a wonderful mower.

It is worth the money. It does everything it is suppose to do and that it advertises. It is the best machinery if used in a long time. I would recommend this product to anyone. It had multiple guards and the instructions are very straightforward. You shouldn't have no safety related issues with this product. This item is amazingly safe to use. I did all of the work in half the time I would usually spend doing this same work with the tool I used to use. The durability of this item is amazing. I ran over seven rocks in a row and it still worked. I love how durable and easy this product is to use.

Good quality mower. Good price for the product. Very reasonable expense for what you get. I'm satisfied with it and would purchase again if given the opportunity. Good safety features. You really don't have to worry about getting hurt when cutting the lawn but if you're an idiot. But even if you're stupid, this mower makes it a lot harder to get hurt. Not too fast that you feel out of control but quick enough that you can move at a good pace and get the lawn mowed reasonably quickly. Not going to win any lawnmower races with it though. This mower is a quality build. They rarely construct products with this kind of build quality these days. You can just feel the detail that went into design and parts of this mower.

I got it for a great deal through Sears. I opened a credit card with Sears and paid off the value of it. It was great because I was able to stretch out my payments. It's pretty self-explanatory. It has a kill switch that works much like an emergency brake in a car. It does not operate without a key. This cuts lawn care in half. I've got a pretty big yard. With a traditional mower it took about 3 hours. It takes 45 minutes including cleanup with this mower. I see it lasting a very long time. It is made out of durable materials. It handles regular wear and tear quite well. It will get hit by yard materials but will be okay.

I thought the value was very reasonable for the mower. It performs as expected and have no real complaints. It makes cutting my 1.5 acres easy (relatively flare lawn). Good as advertised. Safety features were as to be expected. Auto switch off. Everything you'd expect from a quality zero turn riding mower. I didn't find it to be dangerous at all. It was very fast and can cut grass without slowing. About 8 mph which is a good speed and will cut tall grass easily at that speed. Very efficient. Had the mower for 2 years and have not had durability issues at all. Keep it clean and changed oil is about all that needs to be done.

Good price and good product. Great value for your money. No issues with purchase and great customer service. Always there when I had a question or needed any help using. Definitely recommend. A lot of thought and attention placed on safety. Wish more companies would make safety a priority like on this. If safety is your top priority don't look elsewhere. Speed could be a little bit better however I am not going to complain. It is at the industry standard, no better and no worse. However the safety features more than make up for the speed. There have been no major issues, really no issues with durability. I've had zero problems and the machine holds up very well. Better durability than the competition.

Great product for the price. I would definitely recommend this to other consumers. If I need another mower I will definitely consider Ariens. The safety features on this mower are top of the line, just like everything else about the mower -- top of the line all the way. The durability is great.

I did a lot research before purchasing. Price comparisons as well as reliability and power. Ariens came highly recommended. Would definitely recommend. The safety features on the mower are very nice. My son can use the mower without much concern from me worrying about him chopping his special parts. The speed is amazing.
