4 months past the 2 year warranty, trans is acting up: Won't stop unless you apply the brake, tractor just keeps going.After applying brake, does disengage but hard to re-engage, "clunks" into drive mode.

Contacted Ariens customer service with this issue for help and was told it was out of warranty, take it to your local dealer. Purchased at Home Depot, unfortunately, my closest dealer is about 30 miles away.

Home Depot has apparently also given up on Ariens, don't seem to sell them anymore.Hoping that someone has had a similar problem and a has an easy fix?

This reviewer shared experience about bad quality and wants this business to read this review and look into the issue (if any). The author is overall dissatisfied with Ariens. The most disappointing about ariens a20va46 lawn tractor from Ariens was customer service , but reviewer liked price. Reviewer wants customer support to reach out to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.

Bought mine from Home Depot in August of 2014.Made it through 2015 but trans was already making ominous sounds in reverse by mid-season.

Got to 2016 - didn't want to go in reverse without extra force. Then it started running as soon as would release the brake - couldn't find neutral with either pedal. Had new transmission installed under warranty in 2016 at about 33 hours. Beginning of this season - same symptoms reappear.

Continued to use it - forced to use the brake to stop it and massaging the drive pedals to coax it to change directions. As of 6/1/2017, the new trans is stuck permanently in reverse. Can't even use bypass lever to move the mower now. Had to put rear wheels on a dolly just to move the piece of junk back into my shop.

Will NEVER buy another Ariens, or any mower with a plastic transmission.

I think the durability testing results are meaningless on those things.I now own a junk lawnmower with 57 hours of total run time.

I had the same problem, mower tried to climb a fence before I got it stopped!I took the battery and batt.

Box out, and removed the pulley Assy.

Then blew out the hidden linkage area, then sprayed wd40 into the area.Not sure what the exact problem was( trash in linkage area?) but after reassembly, works fine!
