Q: I have approximately 10 acres to mow, is there the possibility of a grass catcher or grass catching bag?
by Andrew from New York on March 18, 2016

A: Andrew - the Ariens MaxZoom 60 mower would use the Ariens 891003 bagger. You would also need the Ariens 791049 bagger mounting kit: 891003 bagger
by Jose, Product Expert
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,

Thinking about buying one of these, just wondering who services them in central Ohio and what kind of warranty comes with it?


by Fred Millington from Ohio on May 11, 2011

A: This unit is going to come with a 3 year warranty, 1 year commercial. The deck will have a 5 year warranty.

In terms of service, any local Ariens service center can do service on this unit.
If you can email us a zip code, we can do a search and find out what servicing dealers would be in your area.

Q: I purchased this mower last fall. What type of engine oil is required. Cannot find the info in any of the manuals.

Love the mower.


by James Perkins from Nebraska on May 08, 2011

A: Just use a 10 W 30 on this and you will be fine.

Q: Hi Todd, what kind of hydraulic fluid does the Ariens 60inch cut zero turn mower use and where can I get it?
by Missy Hayes from North Carolina on May 07, 2011

A: Missy - The hydraulic fluid used in the Ariens MaxZoom 60-inch zero turn mower is a 20W-50 engine oil with an SL-API classification. You should be able to find this at any auto parts store. Ariens recommends changing the hydraulic fluid after the first 75 hours of mower use, and then about every 400 hours after that.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: If I purchase the Ariens MaxZoom60, is it delivered ready to go or is there assembly etc that needs to be done?
by Jeff from Iowa on April 26, 2011

A: This model is going to be pretty much ready to go. The seat will need to be attached along with battery cables and the steering levers will be folded down, but this is all simple and would not take long and is for shipping reasons.

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Do any of the nicer semi-pro or mid-grade zero turn mowers allow their mower decks to be removed in order to service the blades? If not, what is the best method to get to the blades so they can be removed and the underdecking can be cleaned?

Also, I have a somewhat hilly area to mow. Can most of the larger zero turn mowers handle hillier terrain without risking flipping over?

by Dave from Maryland on March 19, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. The mower decks are removable. You should consult your owner's manual or the manufacturer directly before doing so. Another method would be to jack the mower up far enough to remove the blades. Most larger zero turns will handle hills no problem.

The Ariens MaxZoom 60 is a high-performance zero-turn mower that provides excellent performance, value and durability. Tough enough for light-duty commercial use yet affordable enough for homeowners, the Ariens MaxZoom 60 is ideal for small business owners or residential users with large yards.

Powered by a 25HP Kohler V-Twin engine, the Ariens MaxZoom 60 has plenty of kick and moves along at a speedy 8 mph, which is pretty fast considering the large cutting deck. The 60-inch, 10-gauge... more

Love My New Ariens Maxzoom60 Zero Turn Mower !
I have quite a large lawn. I was using a John Deere 54 inch, 4-wheel steer mower. A couple weeks ago, I purchased the Ariens MaxZoom60 zero-turn mower. I can mow my lawn in half the time!

It took me about 10 minutes to master the zero turn feature. I mow the straightaways at 8 mph. Mowing my lawn is now very FUN!!

Defective Pto Clutch Results In Out Of Pocket Money
Only 7 hours on this machine and now the blades do not engage. Because of the units size, I needed to have it picked up and delivered to dealer. While clutch is covered under warranty, the pickup and delivery is not included. So I have to pay 75 dollars out of pocket because of a warranty issue. Not happy!

It's A Beast
Bought this mower to replace an old zero turn that was smaller. I mow 3 acres with several trees on the place. This mower went through tall thick grass with ease. This is the first summer with the machine, but so-far it works great.

Don't Hesitate.... Buy This Mower!!!!
I never write reviews but since this was a pretty big purchase for me I figured I will share my opinion.

This mower KICKS ASS!!!!!!!

I only have about 9hrs. logged on it so far and I'm very satisfied with the ease of use and overall quality of the machine. Has a very rigid heavy duty feel. Took me about 5 or 10 min. to get used to the controls and steering. I have 3.5 acres that I used to do with a 48" john deere LA130. It used to take me a little over 3hrs toal to do front and... more

Careful On Hills
I've had the Ariens MaxZoom60 Zero Turn mower for about 2 months and have used it about 6-7 times. I was a complete novice but adapted well to mowing flat areas in no time. The 60 inch pass is fantastic and mower hasn't had any ignition, cutting blade, or other mechanical issues. All seems well.

That said, we have more hills than are really idea for this type of mower. I have to be very careful as I've slid down the hill on damp grass three times and had to creatively drive out of the jam.... more

First Time On Zero Turn Mower
Got this for my husband, but love it so much he hasn't got to use it much. Takes a little while to get use to, but after a while, it's great! So far this seems like a great mower.

Great Mower
I have about 8 acres requiring mowing weekly at this time of year. This mower does the job in 1/3rd the time it used to take.
I had never used a zero turn before, but I adjusted very quickly and easily and now my wife has fallen in love with it.
