Ariens - Biggest POS ever made
I bought my Ariens 20hp riding mower during the winter, on sale. First time mowing, not cutting good. Of course 30 daywarranty was up. Took it to a certified Ariens rrpair shop 3 weeks later they say nothing was wrong with it BS. Mower belt comes off transmission is worthless. Just waiting till it completly take a crap and use it as target practice. Ariens is crap do not buy their junk.
Ariens - Horrible

Ariens Lawn Mower Review
Poorly designed drivetrain. The blades immediately circulate the grass clippings directly into the belt guard. This forces the mower into permanent go mode. It's like playing tug-o-war the whole time. It takes me more time to clean out the drive belts after each mowing than it does to actually mow. Never again!
This is the third time in 3 years on a 3 year old lawn mower that I have to fix the steering. I can no longer afford the couple of hundred dollars it will cost me to have a knowledgeable person fix it and will do the work myself, an elderly woman on social security...Read more
It took one month for Ariens service rep to pick it up, repair and deliver it back to my home. I bought this tractor after doing some research on the Ariens company because it was made not only in the USA but right here in Wisconsin. I incurred another $200 to cut my...Read more
The front of the frame broke, wheels collapsed. Took it to a service shop for Ariens. They thought a kit would fix it. We said NO. Replace the frame, the weld on these frames were weak and poorly done. Frame is being replaced after 1 month of waiting. Service shop did...Read more
I own a older Zoom 34 and it tears up the lawn. I asked Ariens to fix the problem by increasing the size of the rear tires but they said they didn't know of any problem. Yet a couple of years later they redesigned it with larger rear tires and a bigger engine. I got...Read more

After 4 short grass cutting seasons my Ariens riding mower is broken. I took it to the local mower repair shop & was informed that due to poor design the transmission is not protected from normal lawn mower debris. I hate that I wasted the money on this mower. The shop...Read more
