Q: Todd, if i buy this mower and something goes wrong within the 3 year warranty, how would i get it fixed?
by Joe from Connecticut on June 26, 2011

A: Joe - any needed warranty service would be provided by your local Ariens dealer. We have a link on our web site under customer service that would allow you to look up the closest Ariens service centers using your zip code.

Q: the ariens zero turn mowers, do they have snow blowers available? and if so are they easy to mount? just trying to cut back on the number of gas engines to maintain. thanks Troy
by Troy Donth from Minnesota on June 11, 2011

A: Troy - Ariens does make a snow blower attachment that mounts to the front of their zero turn mowers. I would say the installation is moderate in terms of ease. We don't stock the snow blower attachment, but we would be able to special order it for you if you decide you want one. To be honest, the snow blower attachment is not a big seller, mostly because of the handling and traction of a zero turn mower on snow and ice. Give us a call if you want to find out more about the Ariens snow blower attachment for their zero turn mowers.

Q: Todd, I am considering purchasing the Ariens 34'' ZTR mower, When I contacted the manufacturer, I was told a different model number was sold in Calif., and was available??Can this special carb be purchased at the same price, and are shipping costs and other purchase incentives still the same??
by Jack Hudson from California on May 27, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. We do not carry the CARB compliant model of this mower.
You will find the CARB compliant model for sale within the state of California.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Who does the service when a ZT mower is purchased from you.
by Harry Ingle from Alabama on May 05, 2011

A: Harry - if your zero turn mower should ever require warranty service, the service is performed by the local dealer in your area. If you are considering an Ariens zero turn, then the local Ariens dealer would perform the service and handle the warranty claim with Ariens on your behalf. If you require service after the warranty period ends, you can have any local repair shop work on your mower.

Q: Does this mower have a floating deck? I have a tractor now, it doesnt cut level and it scalps. Will I have the same problem with mower.
by Paul E. Reuter from Connecticut on April 17, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This zero will solve your problem.It is equipped with 4 support positions to prevent excess deck movement. this will give you a better cut without scalping.


by Jose, Product Expert

Q: I live in a by-level house and my yard has some hills and slopes. My yard is 15,000sq. ft. Will the zoom-34 work for me or will it only work on flat ground? I have seen this model at Home Depot and am impressed with what I see.
by Kevin Jackson from Ohio on March 21, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This mower has no problem handling hills and slopes. It would be perfect for a yard of your size.

Needed Adjustments
I agree with Robert, from Florida, the deck and belts required some adjustments in order to work the way they are supposed to work. However, once properly adjusted, it is now running fine. Home Depot is not a store to find replacement/maintenance parts for this lawn mower. They did not carry any general maintenance parts: air filter, spark plug, blades, belts, and accessories for this Ariens mower even though it was purchased from them.

Worst Mower Ever
I have a lawn service and purchased the Zoom 34 to mow small residential lawns. It arrived with a dead battery which is not such a big deal. However, the way the mower tears up my customer's lawn is a very big deal. The unit is too light and the tires too aggressive which results in serious damage to the turf when you turn. It is worhtless on any kind of slope and the paint on the deck peeled off the first time I used compressed air to clean the top of the deck. I find the review that... more

My New Lawn Mower
I'm very dissatisfied with my purchase, It was sent to me with a dead battery I hope that's all that is wrong with it. I just was able to put the battery on a charger so I will check to see if if works. I hope all your customers don't get treated this way. Sorry to feel this way.

Kyle,
This does occur from time to time that a product is shipped with a battery that has drained down or was not properly charged by the manufacturer at the factory. We did not have any record of Kyle contacting us about the dead battery prior to seeing this review. Todd, our product expert for mowers, will be contacting Kyle and offering Kyle reimbursement for the purchase of a new battery locally.

Fast Cutting Time.
I have been cutting lawns for over 5 years and I never had fun doing it. I can cut my lawn in 30 minutes, a task that would take me over one hour and a half. No more bagging with the mulch kit - its a breeze. Very little clippings are seen and the lawn looks great. This machine turns on the dime and I don't have to touch the blades ever when mowing, foward, reverse this machine keeps on cutting.

Issues In The Beginning
Bought mine at Home Depot. The belt came off in the first 10 minutes of cutting. After inspection the belt was defective. After the deck was torn apart in my garage I was off to get a new one. Home Depot was out. So they said. Anyway after driving around town I finally found one. Or should I say bought two. Mower needed all kinds of adjustments which I did myself. Works great now. Don't buy from Home Depot. Would have given a better rating if the product would have be right in the beginning.

Bad Clutch
Loved mower when purchased but then clutch went out. Was replaced under warranty but then went out again and at $700.00 not worth the trouble.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable, Durability, Clutch Has Gone Out For The Third Time

Wow!!
I received my ZOOM 34 last week and mowed my lawn in 27 minutes first time. Tips-Spend $50 to have unload off truck. Use sawzaw to cut crate. Read about how to disengage transmission to push off crate. Takes two people to move off crate. Make sure you have it on fast speed to mow lawn. Don't make sudden turns or it will damage lawn. Great piece of American craftsmanship A+++++++++.

Top Quality Zero Turn
Strong steady engine, cuts great. Was delivered quickly on a secured pallet, just had to connect negative terminal to battery, raise & tighten handles, glance the manual and was ready to cut. The nimbleness of the controls for such a heavy duty machine was impressive. My 12 acre lawn was cut in record time, and it looked great.

Very happy with the entire process, and easy to clean up. Everything on mower is easily accessible, all parts are top quality. Caution, if ordering bagging... more

Worst Machine Ever
Started with a dead battery then needed all kinds of deck adjustments then the spark plug wire broke. When you cut grass it slides all over the lawn it also leaves trails of grass also put new blades, high lift for a better cut but didn't work. The machine is poorly designed.
Pros: None
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Cuts Terrible

Does a great job and seems to be high quality. There is a short learning curve if you have never used one of these types of machines. Be patient and it will be enjoyable to use. Saves a lot of time.
Pros: Durable, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
