Nice While It Lasted
Ariens has two versions of an entry-level residential zero turn lawn mower.

Ariens is doing the right thing by taking cost out of the 2009 version. However, we were able to secure the vastly superior 2008 model at closeout prices.

We recommend the 2008 closeout instead for 6 important reasons:

1. It features a more powerful 16.5-HP instead of a 13-HP engine.

2. The deck has a "doubler plate" to prevent it from cracking. The new version doesn't have the reinforcement. more

Go Cart With A Mowing Deck
When they named this the Zoom they weren't kidding! What used to take almost 3 hours with a push mower now gets done in half the time.

Uneven terrain and trees are no problem. Once you get the hang of the steering bars, it turns on a dime.

The lawn looks great, and I have a pretty good time getting it done (but don't tell my wife!)

Purchased Bagger Kit For Zoom 34 Ztr
Ordered on 3/12/2012 and bagger skid was in my garage on 3/14/2012. I was not home when it was delivered, but the driver opened and inspected for my wife. He also offered to move skid inside my garage bay next to my mower. Which was very helpful since it was fairly heavy. Skid packing and bracing was very though.

Installation took about 3hrs by myself. An hour was spent relocating an aftermarket deck washout port I added previously that was in the way of the discharge chute. ... more

Mulching Kit
The mulching kit was delivered very quickly and was easy to install; although I would recommend removing the mowing deck to ease removing and installing the blades.

A cheater bar helped along with a short length of 4x4 to keep the blades from moving.

It's a good product and does a great job. Torque the blades as recommended.

Needs Wider Rear Tires
I have had my Ariens Zoom now for about 2 years. My only complaint was that the original tires that it came with, 18x6.5X8 were too narrow and had a very aggressive tread which would often dig up the lawn, even when I was very careful with the turns. Last week I bought a pair of new Carlisle Turf Saver tires which are an inch wider (18x7.5x8) off of Ebay for a great price of $35 plus shipping and best of all it included the rims which were offset so that it allowed for the extra clearance... more

Best Mower Around!!
I just used the Zoom 1634 for the first time. This thing is wonderful and built like a tank. The welded frame and solid components make it a long lasting unit!

But, don't let all that heavy duty construction make you think that this is a slow and bulky machine. It is not! This unit is fast and very easy to steer.

The 34 inch deck makes a excellent cut and allows access to areas that larger Zero Turns just can't get into! It has plenty of power and speed.

I also bought the non-power... more

Ariens Zoom® Homeowner (34") 16.5-hp Zero Turning Radius Lawn Mower Review
This is a well put together mower for the money. I've only had it a few days, and so far so good.

Great quality compared to some of the residential models at Lowe's and other local stores.

I'm glad that I purchased this one. Now I've got to go, there is more grass to cut..
