Please do not buy a Ariens lawn tractor
I purchased a 2013 Ariens lawn tractor and it has been a piece of *** After 1 1/2 years the seat pan broke off from the shell. I only weigh 175 lbs. fell backwards seat laying in the grass. I have done regular schedule maintenance faithfully. The another day would not start drop it off a repair shop that sells them was told that the cam shaft was broke. That should not happen. Five years the motor should last longer that. Shame on them for selling a *** pour AMERICAN product. I will never purchased anything associated with Ariens.

Ariens - Poor quality and shoddy workmanship
I purchased a new Ariens Snowthrower and from the factory, 1 of the 4 welds that held the main snowcatching chute to the frame wasn't welded. Subsequently the stress and vibration from the auger casue 2 other welds to break. Ariens paid for a new catching chute but I had to pay $85 for labor to fix the problem. Poor assembly and welds not completed make this the LAST Ariens I buy
Ariens - Where's my warranty?
When I bought the 24" snow blower, I filled out & mailed the warranty registration form with receipt to Sno-Tek. I emailed the picture of serial number to your customer service this time as well. The reason I called your customer service is to get verification of my warranty before heading to nearest dealer. Please provide my warranty information. If you not have it, I'll be a pissed customer! Regards, Bon

Lawn mower stopped going forward or backward. I only had the lawn mower for maybe a year, year and a half (obviously too long to return it to the store I purchased it from). I took the transaxle off and noticed the rotating cam was broken. I thought I could just order...Read more

Ariens - Allen Bruce Moore
This tractor is a piece of *** Since I bought it from home Depot it starts burned oil. I have to change the spark plugs everyday. I have to fix the Deck myself. The bolts keep coming loose or the clamps would come off. I'm about ready to put lemons on it and ride around it on my trailer. To let people it's a bad tractor. My rating on this is 1. I'll never buy another one. Thanks Allen Bruce Moore
Ariens in Kenosha, Wisconsin - Leaking rear axles
I have an Ariens 20hp riding mower with transaxle its on it 2nd summer and both rear shafts are leaking. The expense to repair is outrages. This is a sorry machine and is the same machine as husqavarner and sears. Do not waste your money on tbis product
I'm having a similar issue with an Airens lawn mower. I bought at end of May 2017. I followed all maintenance instructions & drained gas out in Nov. Put fresh oil & gas in, made sure the filter was clean. Started it up, made 2 cuts around the yard, it made a loud...Read more
