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.

My 34" has a 13.5 hp Briggs and Stratton engine... more

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

New Mower
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

Nice Little Mower
Unit was delivered last week. Good setup instructions. Open up the hydraulic bypass valves (2) to get it off the pallet easier. (Read the instructions first.)

We've had frequent heavy rain this year and the lawn was 8" tall. I set the deck height on maximum and this machine handled it no problem. It tamed an awful lawn. I'm a first time ZTR owner, learning to operate was easy. With the rear engine it's much easier on the ears too. Excellent turning on flat ground or gentle... more
