Rated 5 out of 5 by great value 4the money Ive owned my Ariens 54" lawn tractor now for 13months. Ive never had any problems with it so far! I bought the54" size because it was on clearance at home depot. I only have an acre to cut and let me tell you ill never go back to a 42" lawn mower because having a bigger cutting deck saves you lots of time..The tracor has plenty of power from Khloer engines witch i think is better then briggs in a riding mower..

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent machine for all arround use Had this 54" tractor for over a year now love it. Bought some attachments for it in the past year to make it my all arround yard machine. August 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tractor all around I purchased my 42" tractor about 3 yrs ago and I just love it. It has more power ( 19.5 hp ) than I need but I'm a guy and guys like power. I used to have an old 1950s style John Deer and I didn't know what I was missing until I first sat on my Ariens. It's a smoother ride and turns shorter. The Briggs motor is more dependable than the old Kohler on the John Deer. The blades for life is another great thing. I'm hooked for life on Ariens products. My lawn never looked so good. Please put me in the contest for the Ariens Hat. I would love nothing better than to mow wearing an Ariens Hat.Thank YouRichard B, June 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of Use I bought my 42" riding Ariens Mower 3 years ago and have been quite pleased with it. The ride is easy, the cut is great. The operation of the mower is simple and easy to understand. The turning radius is much better than my previous riding mower (Craftsman). Changing the blades by pulling the mower deck could not be any simpler. All in all, I am quite satisfied with my purchase as it was a good deal also. I look forward to many years of satisfied mowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very reliable machine This machine has over 150 hours already for one year and has proven to be a very good running and reliable mower. I leveled the deck when I brought it home and it has performed flawlessly ever since. Only one drawback is that if the grass gets high, even with sharpened blades, it leaves strips of unmown grass behind, but this is usually only with 8 or 10 inch or higher areas that have been neglected. If I can keep ahead of it in the spring, I don't notice this issue. I work this mower hard and cover a large area - I am very pleased and would buy another. I grease the towers every mow, have changed the trans fluid once, and sharpen the blades often. I currently run synthetic fluid now that it is broken in. June 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Mower I have ever owned !!!! I have alot of land that needs to be mowed this machine never lets me down it handles all kinds of ground has plenty of power a large mower deck and great adjustments for the yard to the fields this little work horse is the best it never gets stuck . The design is superior to others which can't get out of there own way, Over the years I have owned every brand they make even the green ones this machine out does them all..I can pull a cart with a good load on it to it moves mountains for me Thanks guys for makeing my life easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Work Horse Great machine and excellent value. The Hp is plenty to carry my 300 pound self, cut grass and run up hill.I was spoiled with the hand lever to control Hydro, but getting use to the foot pedal.Started to worry about a squeelin noise from the transmission, a belt tensioner bend upwards and the belt was hitting the cooling fan.Pulled it down and been quiet ever since.Hoping to find a rear hitch to add tiller. I'm sure I'll find one to fit! June 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This mower is Easy to use & operate I just received this today, filled it up with gas & oil and it started right up, no problems. Rides and mows great. It maneuvers easily, even in tight spaces. You just have to remember to place the key in the "Forward & Reverse" position otherwise when putting it in reverse it will stop on you *smile*. This is my second Ariens product over the past 2 yrs and I've had nothing but good things with them. My first was a Snow blower 2 yrs ago and it's worked great from day one, as I'm sure this mower will also. I recommend any Ariens product as they are trouble-free and backed by good workmanship & warranty. April 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy. Tough machine. I've had my machine 2 seasons and it has performed better then expected. Lots of power to cut heavy grass and pull my 5x8 trailer (heavy loads). The machine cuts smooth and ejects the clippings with authority.Love the hydraulic drive with no gear shifting and the quick change from forward to reverse.Complaints: Tire design limits climbing ability through lack of traction. The deck doesn't raise high enough off the ground when in transit mode. Lifting the deck another inch would solve all problems. No gas gauge. Trailer hitch area should be beefed up as it bends under heavy load. March 11, 2012
