Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful and Solid Machine The ZOOM 48 is a great size. Easy to fit through my fence gate openings and has sufficient power for cutting down high grass wet or dry. This mower is great on mostly flat surface lawns. Very easy to operate. It`s a knee saver with my arthritis. I can ride and get the job done fast for a great looking lawn. June 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built quality mower Have owned the Max zoom 48 for 8 months now and love it. I like the heavy duty deck and frame, Kawasaki engine, and smooth controls. Cuts grass with ease and is very comfortable. I added the mulch kit and headlights and feel like this is the perfect mower for me. Cannot really suggest any changes to this product which is unusual for me! Highly recommend. June 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Zero Turn for the Landowner Market. The only thing this machine lacks is an ROPS. Otherwise, for the price, it is a super machine. I have been using mine for three years, and it just keeps amazing me. I keep up a lake property that has four houses on the property, some of it rather rough mowing with lots of trees. This little machine really cuts my mowing time in half as compared to my Alis-Chalmbers lawn tractor and is very easy to maneuver over the terrain. I highly recommend this machine for the non-professional. June 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My MAX Zoom 48 Does The Job! The 48" deck is great for my tightly landscaped 2 acre Southern lawn. This is my first Zero Turn. I only regreat that I wasted my time and money on all those chain store riding mowers. I feel that this Ariens Max Zoom will outlast at least two of the other brands I have been wrestling with.Thanks for providing a quality product. June 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Max Zoom has great performance I bought my Max Zoom 48 last year it is the first zero turn mower I have owened or use. I have a large area with lots of trees and obstacls to mow around ,this mower has cut the time way down compared to my previous conv. lawn tractor style mower. So far the unit has performed well with no down time. June 12, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, awesome mower Had a Sears rider for 10 years - couldn't imagine spending nearly $5K for a mower. Finally took the plunge last year - wish I'd done it 10 years ago. Lawn is 2 acres with lots of trees - this ZTR cuts time required by more than 50%. Koehler engine is terrific. February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by THIS PRODUCT HAS GREAT FEATURES.....BUT I WOULD RECOMMEND THE MULCH KIT. THIS IS THE BEST MOWER BY FAR I HAVE EVER OWNED............. June 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product is a fantastic value I have used the Max Zoom 52" for over a year. It still cuts like day one with minimal maintenance. This mower has reduced my lawn care time by over 50% and the lawn (3 acres) looks better than previous standard mowers. Slight negative is you must go slow over rougher ground. I would buy another! June 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by very reliable I have had this mower only a few weeks but i do a lot of houses daily it's a great buy i recomend this mower it has impressde me it handles well good on gas very reliable June 22, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by This machine does a great job. The mower was delivered in ready to go condition. Just add gas and go. Just one complaint. The drive tires are a bit slippery. I have a slight slope to my yard and when I turn the rear tires lose traction and the mower slides sideways a bit. It was disconcerting when it first happened but I have learned to control it. It appears to be a sturdy machine but I have only 20 hours on it so my observations a limited. June 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Generally good with one major flaw I have about 65 hrs on this machine since purchase last August. It has performed to my expectations in all areas but one. The rear tires are way too small for the weight of the unit. As a result, they frequently lose traction on moderate inclines and just spin when starting from a stop, especially in reverse. Otherwise the engine power is very adequate and the cutting is smooth and even. I would recommend it even with the small wheels for those without any slopes or inclines in their yard. June 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 Excellent product for the price point Had my unit for over 1 year and very pleased with the quality and performance at this price point. No other unit in this class had Hydrogear ZT-3100s or better, a Kawasaki engine and a real frame and deck. Would have preferred a full commercial unit but for 2 acres or less this machine gets the job done. Only complaints is that it tends to spin the rear tires on sharp turns, wish it had 1/4" cutting height adjustments versus the 1/2" and the person who installed the hydro oil filters didn't oil the seals first. Took my largest pipe wrench to remove. I also purchased a Kawasaki foam filter to cover the air cleaner. Why this $4 part is not standard is beyond me! June 12, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by You get what you pay for I really like the performance of the 54" Max Zoom. It has really cut down on my mowing time, but it comes with a few problems. After a few months, my fuel tank gauge started leaking. Not a big deal, just keep the tank below 3/4 tank and you never notice it. I took it to an authorized dealer for warranty repair, but he told me he didn't think he could repair it.About a month later the hydraulic tank started leaking, still not a big deal. What's a couple drops under the mower? Wrong, leak kept getting worse. The belt for the mower deck finally jumped off last week, probably because of the hydraulic fluid leaking all over the drive pulley. My wide finally made me take it to the repair shop. I have two oil slicks in my garage now.The Arien dealer said he can have it back to me in two weeks. Good thing because I'm mowing two acres with a push mower and it is getting old. I really miss that mower. It sounds like a terd, but for the money, it's really a good deal? June 15, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by OK MACHINE FOR SUPERSMOOTH LAWN RIDES TOO CHOPPY, WHEELBASE TOO SHORT, NO SHOCKS,DECK MADE TOO LIGHT, NO TRACTION ON SMALL INCLINES......OK FOR SMALL SUPER SMOOTH PROPERTIES.BROUGHT IT BACK AND BOUGHT A FERRIS June 13, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Max Zoom 60" We purchased our Max zoom 60" almost 2 years ago! The best purchase we have ever made. We own 58 acres in Alabama and cut 26 of it on a weekly routine. The grass was over 5 ft tall when we purchased our land and our Max Zoom helped us make it a beautiful place. We treat it like a bush hog machine and it has far exceded our expectations. The only thing we would change is get thicker tires because we push them with what we put it through. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this brand of mower! Love it!!!!! We will purchase an Ariens again and always recommend it to everyone!! June 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best mower i have owned so far. I purchased the max zoom 60 with the Kawasaki 26hp motor 2 years ago for mowing my 6 acre homestead. This thing is truly a beast. It has put up with seriously unshirted Haides and asked for more. I am very careful about maintenance, but have never had a problem. Cuts thick tall johnson grass like a speed freak with a machete. I have several Ariens implements and have yet to be let down. September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome mower I bought this mower several month ago and used it in my 5 lot yard. I recently bought 13 acres out in the country and I mowed it for the first time yesterday. The mower was great. It performed really well. The only thing I could see is that it does have a bit of a traction problem. I think this is due to weight at the rear tires. It’s just a little light. May have something to do with the tires also but I don’t think having a more aggressive tire would not help without the weight being there also. One other small thing is it could use a bigger engine more HP. I noticed mine bogging down a little but it was no big deal. The grass and weeds were really high so I’m sure any mower would have bogged a little. I was mowing about 10 acre lot and it was awesome the mower was fun to drive. I had a beer in one hand and drove with the other it was that easy. Great mower. O and it could use an option for front springs of some kind. June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the toughest mower I've ever owned, it is a tank! I purchased this mower because my son purchased one and I watched him use it for two years and was so impressed I just had to have one. I didn't think I could afford one, but finally decided I had purchased my last highly touted foreign mower. The last two mowers lasted me 15 and 13 years respectively, but were not built nearly as well as the Ariens.I mow slightly less than an acre of grass with lots of flowerbeds and trees and I can mow it in approximately 1/2 the time the other mower could and I am comfortable while I am mowing. The seat is high, giving a good view of the surrounding area and is very comfortable to drive.I take good care of mowers and expect this to be the last mower I ever own. Congratulations Ariens, you have built a great mower. June 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best out there! This mower is as heavily built as a contractor grade mower. It mows through the thickest grass and cuts smoothly. June 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good mower for the money. We use it once a week. When I use it I use 5 gals of gas for 3.5 acres, my wife uses 5 gals for 1.75 acres. I really like the mower it does a good job. It looks like changing the oil is going to be a measy job from the way the oil filter sets in there. I would like ti see grease fittings in a fee places (front wheels, etc) June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to operate, yard looks good when finished. I have had no problems since I bought the Ariens zero turn mower. The 60inch mower works better for our yard. We are able to finish in about 3.5 hours compared to 5 hours. June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent mower for the price I have a 6 acre yard and my mower does an excellent job, even when I get behind, still cut the longer thicker glass with out a problems.Always starts and does not use nearly as much gas as some of my friends expensive so-called professional mowers. June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Our zero turn mower has cut our mowing time by over 50 percent. It is quite versatile and does such a quality job. June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Last mower that I plan on purchasing! My home lot is approximately 3 level acres. Since 2001 I cut using a 48” garden tractor and a 60” offset finishing pull-behind mower. This combination provided a 108” cut but it required separate engines, 5+ gallons of gas per cut, oil as needed, ongoing preventive and non-scheduled service maintenance, 5 standard blades to maintain, etc. Factor in my extensive landscape obstacles it averaged on a good-day 4.5 hrs. or more if/when a break was necessary. If both of the mowers had not been down at the same time for unscheduled maintenance last September I might still be using the same equipment. A close friend and his Dad have a small landscape mowing business. After I witnessed firsthand the results of “Zero” Turn mowers I was amazed and sold. Following several weeks of extensive research at dealers and online I chose the Ariens "Zoom” 60”.Bottom line: after 52 operating hours; average cut time 3.5 hrs. using only a half tank of gas. The seat design and arm rests combination were a big plus. Draining the oil is the easiest, my complements to the design team. Only options missing, satellite dish and a grill. Those would raise the bar from a great mower to a double fantastic mower. June 14, 2013
