Rated 5 out of 5 by Made in Wisconsin, great price for a quality unit that will last. I've been wanting one for a long time and when this one came up, a refurbished end of the season unit, and the price was great. I snapped it up. It takes a little getting used to as does everything that is a bit different. I mow everything that I can't get with my rider with this and trim as I go.. (Had an Ariens rider for about 15 years before I broke an axel gear-pulling a small stump. Not really made for that as it was a small 12HP. We live in sand/rock country so this is the way to go as my bladed mower gets dull quickly from all of the rocks I hit trying to trim close. (My wife edges her flower beds with rocks.) With Ariens you pay a little more but outlasts the cheap imported china junk. Back to specifics, after a long winter and a few pumps of the primer she started right up. Typical one-pull starting all season. Simple to maintain as well as uses an easy starting Briggs and Straton Engine-great power for this unit. Get good string as the cheap stuff uses up quicker. As almost allways-YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! OR YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET. June 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a GREAT product. I love doing yard work and using the Ariens string trimmer is a back saver. I've had 3 surgeries on my neck in the last 10 years and this help me so much. Using a regular string trimmer would keep down for days from neck pain. I have over an acre and I have no touble doing it now. This works GREAT. Thanks June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ariens, 22" string trimer I bought this machine because I did not want to pay what DP wanted for their machine as I did not think the value was there. Turns out that I made a great choice! This machine is really well built...runs and starts very well. I am very impressed with the ease of starting as it usually starts on the first pull and certainly starts on the second pull.The ONLY thing I would change in the design would be the engine air cooling shroud. I noticed that the times I used the machine that the wholes in the engine cooling shroud (top within the circle) air intake would look like it was plugging up with chafe from the weeds and could possibly interfere with the cooling ability. I'm not saying the engine was getting hot but did not like the plugging up of the holes as this was about 70% plugged or appeared as 70%.I put together a pre-filter utilizing the three bolts already existing in the top of the shroud which works very nicely since I fastened the filter material with wing nuts it is easy to remove and slap clean. My wife thinks I'm nutsLC Campbell June 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't beat it I have owned my trimmer/mower for approximately 10 years. I use it so much in rocky and ruff ground it wears out the part that spins on the ground. I have no complaints with this. It could be improved by using wider wheels with steel spokes. The plastic spoke wheels warp when you mow across a hill. This makes pushing the mower twice as hard. I had an old mower with 12" steel spoke wheels that I replaced the plastic wheels until the replacement rubber wore off. Now I have worn the rubber off the orginal wheels. A wheel and a hub cost $35 each. July 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for yard with lots of exposed rocks. We have used this trimmer on our acre lot for two seasons. Starts easy, the line is a snap to change and has lots of power for high Texas hill country weeds. The large wheels help to manuver it on uneven terrain since I am not a large person. The guard is great to keep rocks from being thrown against windows or my husband. It is a little pricey but worth every penny. The only improvement I would like to see is an easier method to change the oil. July 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I enjoy the way my string trimmer cuts through the brush on my property. I use the product to cut down 3 to 5 foot brush in areas I cannot reach with a riding mower or brush hog. It is a work saver, and I'm glad I have it June 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it, weeds don't I am very pleased with this machine when using it whit the nylon wire for destroying big weeds, but I bought this machine to destroy the weeds between the concrete stones around the house. For this job the machine is equipped by “Tuinadvies from Holland” whit a steel brush. Such a brush cost approximately € 75 and is gone in one hour. June 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Expensive but the best Had it 3 years now. the only things I have changed are the things that are supposed to ware out. Wheels, trim line ball, etc. I have really put it to the test. I have a very rough yard and it is all stained with grass but it keeps going. If you keep the oil changed, clean out the air filter, and generally keep it maintained, it will keep on going... June 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I purchased this non-self propelled string trimmer mower to mow my 5 acres. It starts right up every time, very light and maneuverable, Cuts great, only regret is that I should have purchased the self-propelled model. June 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product, highly recommended. This is my second Ariens Wheeled Trimmer. The first one lasted 12 years with use every couple weeks all summer long every year. It finally wore out the piston attachment and froze up. While I waited for the new one to arrive I had to mow my wild areas on my 1/2 acre property, so I rented one of the "supposed highest rated wheeled mowers" to get is all caught up. That was the most miserable mowing experience I have ever had. The manner of adjusting the height of the cutting cords took forever to adjust. If the cords were broken off equal to the holder you needed needle nose pliers and at least 20-30 minutes to remove the rest of the cord and attach a new one. The power was attrocious. I live on a hillside and it really was not happy cutting when it was not level. I was so happy to receive the new Ariens a little over a week later. The improvements over the 12 years are great. I highly recommend this trimmer. The only improvement or option I would love to see available would be self propelled, as I get older. June 12, 2012
