What A Disappointment
The single point height adjustment is the best feature on this mower. It has easy to read numbers on the selector gate. This mower is very heavy and has wheels that resist turning. It's like having the brakes on, on the bright side it never rolls away by itself.

The motor starts easily when cold, but when you empty the bag and try to restart, it may take five or six hard pulls to restart a hot motor. Advertisement tells you that it is Ariens brand motor. It has a Ariens decal but it's... more

Very Unhappy
Based on the glowing reviews at Mowers Direct we purchased an Ariens "Razor". The mower arrived in a very timely manner and was easy to assemble. It started right up on the 2nd or 3rd pull, and that's where the romance ended. The mower is EXTREMELY hard to push. We keep our grass short so it's not like we were trying to cut a hay field. My wife who loves to cut the grass hates the chore now and I find it a real workout too.

Plus, the 3rd time we used it the pull starter... more

Excellent Buy !
My old mower gave out after only 20 years. I desperately needed another. I hit the internet, found the Ariens model, bought it - am ecstatic !

and no - I AM NOT WORKING FOR ARIENS !

It's just that you get used to shabby products until you buy one that is BETTER than what you expected . . . it
feels GREAT when that happens !
Pros: Durable, Price

Ariens Razor
I bought the Ariens mower as it is not self-propelled, my lawn area is not that big and I didn't want self-propelled. It is also one of a few non-self-propelled mowers that offer mulching, bagging and side discharge capabilities. It has a very strong engine that starts on the first pull. So far the mower has done an excellent job of mulching and side discharge even in higher than normal grass. I have not used the bagging feature as I usually mulch. The mower has a very nice one lever wheel... more

Met All Expectations
I purchased my Ariens Razor 911173 online with a little bit of trepidation concerning such an expensive purchase through a website. However, my purchase proceeded smoothly, I was in constant contact with the vendor and even was able to arrange the delivery time so I would be there. I had a very good experience, and the lawnmower came promptly and in working condition.

This lawnmower was ranked in Consumer Reports and it did not disappoint. Started up right out of the crate and mulched my... more

Love It!
I researched many mowers before I made this purchase - both at the store and online. Never heard of Ariens, but the review was what I wanted to hear and the price was right. It is the perfect mower for me. My yard is small and I needed a machine that would start up immediately without multiple efforts, easy to maneuver around flower beds, and a bagger that was easy to attach and remove. This met all requirements and runs smoothly and is quiet. Could not be happier.

Great Mower
The Ariens Razor push mower 911173 is a great mower. The mower started on the first pull every time. Mulches great, has a nice even cut. It has a very easy single handle height adjustment. The only complaints are that it doesn’t have the Rite-Hite handlebar adjustment and it is pretty heavy.
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Works Great For A Year…. But Then
Worked great for a year. Now shuts down after running for about 10 minutes and have to wait for it to cool to continue.

Jose, the Lawn Mower Expert
Product Expert
Bill,
Clearly this is not something normal and nor should you have to deal with this happening. The mower has a 3 year warranty and can be taken into an Ariens servicing dealer. The issue may be due to a bad wire harness or it could just be bad fuel. I have attached a link to the Ariens servicing dealer locator so you can find the nearest dealer. If you have more questions on this, please feel free to give us a call and we can assist.
