Got the same problem with my Ariens model 936085.It also is only about a half month out of warranty. Finally found the seals at Ariens the part number is seal kit RS 800. The seals pop out rather easily (haven't got the new ones yet) Now as for the oil/fluid replacement. I took all the bolt and screws out and tried to pull the cases apart but they seemed glued shut and I was afraid I would break the case so I drilled and tapped a 3/8 fine thread... Read more

This is my second 17hp 42" cut Ariens lawn tractor. I like the tractors and think they are made well. I was unable to ever get either to cut level. I also had a 24hp 46" cut Husqvarna lawn tractor from Lowes and they only have a one year warranty from Husqvarna. 15 months from purchase the transmission quite working. It would cost 750.oo to replace it. If I had bought it from a dealer it would have a 2 year warranty. I understand that... Read more

It is made of plastic. one year later I had similar problems and fou;nd out from the repair folks, the transmission went out again. To replace theplastic transmission costs $750.00. Fortunately the good repair folks called Arien and argued with them about my case so Arien sent them another plastic transmission for free. I... Read more

I purchased an ARIENS 46 inch cut riding lawnmower from Home Depot. Six (6) months later, it would not go forward or reverse. It was still under warranty so I called and had to drive 40 miles to the nearest shop to fix it. After three (3) months, I go my riding lawnmower back. I used it for one summer since being repaired. Winter came, and now with spring and long grass, I took the mower out and started cutting grass. After approximately 10... Read more

I bought a Ariens 20 hp, 42 inch deck rider. It was traded in for a John Deer because the rod cap that holds the forward/reverse rod in place would not stay on. I bought it from the JD dealer cheap. No wonder it was cheap. The wanted to dump it as soon as they could. I got the cap to stay on the pin of the forward/reverse rod connection. But the tractor will hardly go into reverse. I is operated by a pulley that closes on the belt to get... Read more
