Get Ready To Zoom Through Your Lawn.....
I have owned my share of mowers from walk behind to riders to zero turns and the Ariens is by far the most well built one I ever owned. This mower with the 19 hp Kohler engine makes mowing a breeze.

Take it from me, you can't go wrong. I am very pleased with my Ariens zero turn mower. I even bought the chrome rims. It's the coolest looking mower in the neighborhood.

Consumers Need To Know
Well, I bought this mower about 4 months into 2016.. so far I'm pretty pleased with the mower but there are two big issue that should be dealt with.. the reverse mode on this mower is super slow, and the mower deck has no anti-scalp wheels, so it's very easy to get snared on something on your lawn you can very easily destroy your lawn mower deck if you're not super careful once you bang this mower deck pretty good you might as well scrap this mower.

Other than that, everything else works... more

Awesome Mower
I received this Mower very quickly. I uncrated and began to read the directions to make ready. The instruction book was easy to follow except for the transmission bypass area. Not being familiar with the Hydrostatic transmission I had a real hard time locating the Bypass Rod from the picture in the instruction book.

The mower is awesome and a joy to run. I preforms every bit as well as others have stated in their reviews. I have a level yard so I did not install the counter weights on... more

Great Mower
I have my own landscaping business and this mower cuts through grass wet or dry and leaves it looking great. I also bought it for the convenience of getting into backyards, it fits through about 80% of them and cuts my mow time in half. Its a must buy for beginners all the way to the pros, trust me.

Needed This
I do lawn-care work with a contractor & was needing this mower.

So, it was delivered & had them set it in the driveway. 10-15 minutes busting out the crate. Hooked up the Negative/Battery, set the lap bars....

I check the oil & it was very overfull. This was quite disappointing as I was in a hurry & didn't have time to deal with this. The level seemed to go down after starting it. not much... I had to go ahead & run with it, drove it out of the crate (sometimes lifting... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

Great Mower
Runs great, mows great, cut mowing time in half. Was disappointed that at the price it didn't come with a trailer hitch or a washout port . Was able to order the hitch but so far no luck with the washout port kit , and I even have the part #.

Great Size For My In-town Yard.
I shopped for a long time to find a zero-turn mower that was appropriate for my average city yard. After looking locally without success, I went to Mowers Direct and soon found this Ariens 34" that looked good, and would fit through my standard wood fence gates.

After using it several times, I am very pleased with the abundant power it has and the quality of the construction. The purchase was easy and the shipping was handled exactly as promised. I paid for the lift-gate service and... more

First Zero Turn
Bought this to replace my 33" Snapper tractor. I have about 3/4 acre to mow. After two mowing's, I am a complete believer. This thing is a beast. I'm just learning and it already has cut my mowing time in half. And it gets so much more of the lawn cut that my trimmer time will be reduced as well.

Toughest part of the entire deal was getting it out of the shipping crate. My gosh it was crated to survive anything. I made good use of my cordless Sawsall.

The blade engagement is a... more

Ariens 34-inch Mower
This is a good mower. Had just one problem. To install the bagger, you have to remove the front plate. The bolt was overtightened in mfg. and was stripped. Had to drill it out to replace the front plate for the bagger. Customer service said to take it to the dealer and let them do it. No way to get it to the dealer as I don't have a trailer. Bought it from Mowers Direct, so no taking it back there. In final review the mower is good, but the bagger system is overpriced for what you get.

Overall, I love the mower. Steering was something I had to get used to as the shorter width between tires makes it very sensitive. Easy to operate. Could use a couple small improvements. There is not a wash out port (really don't understand why as that seems standard on zero turns and riders now) and the chute cover got chewed up by the blade the first day I had it. Other than those things, I love it! Plenty of power and not too bad on gas consumption either.

Best Mower Available
I have a Cadet RZT 42", 30" timemaster, 33" cub and now the ariens 34". The ariens is the smoothest mower I have ever driver. If you are looking into this mower get the 19 HP. If you follow Kohler you know the engine is unstoppable. When you put 19 horses on this smaller mower you can really get stuff done. Never bogs down and is reliable to the core.

The only downfall seems to be from the big casters in the front or the small wheels in the back or both. Haven't figured... more

Love My Mower
I am well pleased with my mower. It does the job very well. I have only one problem - I need a sprocket that would fit a larger rear wheels for the one-inch axle, with four lugs. I have not been able to find this adaptor. Can you help?? Thank you, Phil Jenkins, a happy customer!!!
