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.

Not Durable
Had to replace starter after 2 years. Starter spring got eaten multiple times.
Mower is hard to service (guess that makes it a mower).
Break switch screws wont hold, so I had to tape the switch closed.
Break lever is out of adjustment and causes mower to turn if engaged while running.
On 3rd battery, they last 2 years each.
Clevis pins tend to break and bolts so parts come off while mowing.
Front corner of frame welds broke.
On 4th chute, bad all plastic system is easy to break.

Pros: Easy To Use, Fast

Awesome Ariens - Zoom50
I received my mower and removed it from the crate. After checking the fluids, I added fuel, hit the key and it fired right up. I then proceeded to mow my 5 acres which had grown to about 10" in length. The Ariens made short work of it. This is my first zero turn mower and it was easy to use, steers easily and exactly, and is solidly built. My property is hilly and consists of lawn and field grass. Regardless of the mowing terrain or grass type, the Ariens cut perfectly. It was... more

Exceptional Mower - Easy To Operate
The Ariens Zoom 50 is the easiest, best zero turn mower to operate bar none. It is a solidly built machine and it shows. From the welded frame to the heavy duty sheet metal, this mower is sound. The Kohler engine fires right up and after I mowed the lawn the first time, I hit the field which needed it as well. The Ariens made short work of that as well with no issues. It's perfect for my hilly, Pacific Northwest location.

Why do they have it advertised as the 23 horse when I received it the motor says 22 horse the advertising is kind of misleading. They really should correct that statement of being a 23 horse It's a great lawn mower. I had an Ariens 1742 I went back to Ariens because of dependability.

Great Little Mower
This mower has cut my mowing time in half from when I used a 42" lawn tractor. I like it a lot.
