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: If I buy a zero turn from you (looking hard at the ariens zoom xl 48), is it fully assembled before i have it lift gated to my house?
thanks

by Charles Monroe from Texas on April 02, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. The only assembly required is attaching the seat. Then just gas, oil, and go!!

Q: I am looking for a 48" zero for a small commercial property. It is a "strip center with long narrow sections of grass. Not a lot, but i also intend to use mowing my own grass approx 4 acres. I am not in the landsaping biz full fledged and will not be using 40 hrs a week nor everyday either. help me??
by Don Geddis from Ohio on March 10, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry.
This mower is perfect for the application you described. The Ariens ZoomXL48 is designed for the landowner with a lot of property to tend to but not at a commercial level. The feature that seperates this mower from the rest is the Kawasaki engine. This engine gives you a smooth power output, quieter operation and outstanding durability. This mower should give you exactly what you need.

Ariens Zoom Xl
Received my mower the other day and everything was in excellent shape. Must say I had some worries buying a mower online sight unseen, but the experience was great. Mower was shipped quickly and even the driver took time to ensure the mower was in acceptable condition before he left. Mower appears to be great quality. Might need some very minor adjustments on the tracking and deck. A great buy that I would recommend to anyone.

Brand New & Broken
Long story short, several issues from brand new. Required major repairs. Worst customer service from manufacturer. Result, paid for a working mower that's not what I got.

Waste Of Money
From the day my Ariens XL Zoom 48 arrived it was a disappointment .

Problem #1. At the first turn of the key the problems began. The starter stumbled like that of an old car. The starter had a dead spot. 3 turns of the key later I got it going. Not a good sign...if only I had returned it then.

Problem #2: As I drove down the driveway I noticed the steering was uneven. With the handles at the same position it veered right. I cut my 2 acres anyway. Veering right the entire time.

Great Machine For The Money
I will have to admit that I have bought the Gravely ZT XL 48. But this machine is exactly the same as the Ariens Zoom XL 48. The only difference is it has the Kawasaki FR engine. Not that Kohler Courage is not a good engine, but talking to different mechanics and found that Kawasaki engines were great engine. Otherwise, this is a great machine for the money. 10 gauge fabricated steel deck, access door to your belts, Hydro-gear ZT-2800 Hydrostatic transmission, and a larger horsepower... more

Owned Now For 18 Months
I have a 1 acre yard in Phoenix AZ that I have to mow year around. With our grass it is very important to bag the clippings. In the past I owned a John Deere tractor with a rear bagger attachment. It did a good job of mowing, however the passive bagger would clog unless the grass was bone dry. Even in Phoenix it is hard to time mowing so that the grass is totally dry.

I finally moved up to this mower about a year and a half ago. I am very pleased. I bought the powered bagger... more

Terrible Support When Things Go Wrong!
When you buy a product and your product has no issues that's fine, however when I bought my mower, I had trouble with it for a full 1 year before I sold it for peanuts just to get rid of the machine.

For me, the electric clutch kept breaking the stay, and this in return made the wires all rip that connected the clutch to the power source.

To make things worse, Ariens would not do anything to fix it. Every time I contacted someone, they just said it was my fault (someone who has owned... more

Cam,
We are sorry to hear of the issues you have experienced with the Ariens mower you purchased. Because you didn't purchase it here, we can't be sure when you bought it. If your mower is still under warranty, you should be able to get it fixed with an authorized Ariens service center in your area. The only advice we can offer at this time is that you get back in touch with Ariens at 920-756-4688 to find out if they'll still honor your warranty.

Outstanding Mower
May 2014, this is my third year. No problem performing its task. I mow 1-1/2 acres. Living on a lake. I recommend different tires on shore line. Unless you like picking up 500lbs. Get it out of the mud. Lake is down, this zero turn will mow down cat tails and almost anything in its path. I'm pretty hard on this machine just keep engine clean change oil.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

Dealer's Overhead Vs Learning Curve
Took me a couple hours and a little paint to understand how this mower operates. Guess the cost of a dealer's overhead/ instruction could have saved me a little bit of a learning curve, but no real damage. Would buy it off Mowersdirect.com again!
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable
Cons: You Don't Know What You Don't Know
