Don't buy Ariens
I have had my self propelled lawn mower for 2 years , and have had to service it 3 times.No small fixes.
Cracked carb x 2 and a problem with the entire gas line erroding within the first 6 weeks of use. Each time the fixes cost roughly $80.
So for the 2 years that I have owned this mower I have paid roughly $240 extra dollars on a machine that was a sale price of $259.(We bought this model because we didn't want to spend too much) Now I own a $500 machine that is worth the same as a pile of *** and equally as useful.
