Great Features: Great Mulching, Large Collection Bag
Now that we are up and running - LOVE the mulching and pick up, large collection bag, LOTS of Power...

Day1: Mower would not start, had to take to local dealer for service. Owners manual states: mower to be shipped without oil. Box used for shipment states: DO NOT tip or Turn on side, mower filled with oil. Yes, mower was delivered with oil. Some where along the deliver path the mower must have been placed on it's side, this flooded the carburetor. Hence, mower would not start. The carburetor was removed, cleaned, and re-installed. Mower now runs, but running rich. Dealership orders and installs new carburetor. We're Mowing...

Suggestion: When shipping mower with oil added; please ensure that mower is strapped to the delivery pallet.

Versatile and durable
The Veterans Cemetery I work at owns 2 of these machines. The swiveling front wheels make it very easy to maneuver, and the speed adjustment makes it easy for any of my staff to operate the mowers comfortably.
The overall features and construction are very high quality. We have had a couple of issues losing the keepers from the height adjustmant pins on the front wheels, but overall are very happy with the performance of these mowers.
After 2 years using them, I am impressed enough that when my home mower finally wears out, I am planning on getting one of these for myself.

Mower was easy to set up and operate. I especially love the swivel front wheels. I am 74 yrs. young and have no problem handling this mower. Hope to do it another 20 yrs.

Commercial Quality, Beyond "Prosumer"
I have a twelve year old Ariens Classic LM21 Push mower (Not self-propelled) with the original swivel wheel kit and this is the best mower I have ever owned. I've had MTDs, Poulans, and even top-end Craftsman mowers, but this is still my "go-to" mower for my DIY-landscaped quarter-acre corner lot. Nothing mulches nearly as well, or can spread side discharge clippings so far and evenly (which I attribute to the unique shape and end-notches on the high-lift 21" blade). The original Tecumseh 5hp engine was replaced about ten years ago with a better Briggs and Stratton 190cc 6.5hp Quantum XRM one, and it is really powerful. IMHO, the newer Kawasaki 179cc engines aren't quite as "beefy" though they are indeed a little quieter and likely sip a bit less fuel. I confess I am something of a "convert" now, because I was always the type of guy that lusted after owning a top end Honda or Commercial Honda mower. Yeah, Honda mowers are still "exotic" and well engineered and usually very well-made and QC'd, but when it comes to season-to-season maintenance, reliability, and even "friendly neighbor mower-envy"- the Ariens turns heads. My one neighbor liked mine so much after borrowing it repeatedly (lol), he went and bought a brand new Gravely... because he preferred the color Red to Orange! They are doing it right in Wisconsin. That's just one Ohioan's opinion, though. Thanks for reading.

This is the second Ariens product I have purchased (I also own an Ariens Snow blower), and I am very happy with both. The mower starts on the first pull every time, and the rear bagging system works great. The last mower I had left clippings all over, due to the fact that the bag would get clogged up, not the case with this one.

A really fine machine. Maneuvers like a dream with the swivel wheels, and the speed adjustments are great; I have not yet been able to swalk behind it at the fastest speed (maybe that's because I'm 60) but still, it's fast and efficient and built to last. A good buy, and well worth the cost.

16 year old mower
I just ordered a new Ariens self propelled classic mower. My old one is 18 years old and finally broke down. It would cost as much as a new one to fix it. So, of course I bought an Ariens. How many lawn mowers last 16 years? I know this new one will last as long if I keep it serviced. I would recommend an Ariens to anyone who asks. Love my mower!!!
