  2 Questions
Q: Is this machine's mower deck supported with 4 chains?
by Daniel from Florida on April 27, 2016

A: Daniel - the mower decks on the Ariens IKON XL series mowers are not supported by chains. There are 4 steel support rods that hold the deck in place and allow it to adjust up and down cutting height wise.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: I can't find this information, maybe you can help. Does the Ariens Ikon XL42 or XL52 mow in reverse?
by Robert from Florida on March 25, 2016

A: Robert - yes, the Ariens IKON zero turn mowers we sell will all mow in reverse

Great Zero Turn!
This is my first Zero Turn, and I love it! Took a few minutes to get used to, but I enjoy mowing the lawn with it. The controls are very sensitive, and I'm not sure if there is an adjustment.

I added the LED light kit to my order, which was very easy to install and only took a few minutes. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and the excellent customer service from Mowers Direct! Thank you!

What A Mower!
I needed a large mower for my 3 acre property. All flat and covered in grass. My IKON XL 52 mows like a dream, plus works well with attachments--Ohio Ind and AgFab. Well worth the extra money to get a quality zero turn mower. Mulching kit works great, too.

Great Mower!
I received my new mower, I helped unload it, and took it out of the crate. It didn't take long to do the minor things to put it together. After a few runs around the yard, I got the hang of how use a zero turn mower. The machine handled perfectly and the cutting was perfect. I would say I'm perfectly happy with my new mower.

"Mowers Direct was excellent, received my mower as expected on time. Turning radius is very touchy from what I am used to, excellent machine, both very durable and powerful. Already recommended to a friend."

Very Impressed
Mowers Direct was great to deal with. The Z-Turn arrived and works like a charm.

I have owned two garden tractors in the past, why I waited so long for zero turn is beyond me. It's cut mowing to a third and made cutting grass fun.

I also purchased the bagger but haven't opened box yet as I will use it only for leaves and if I dethatch. I also ordered mulch blades, but I don't think I will need them as the current blades are great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Expensive
