  2 Questions
Q: Does this mower have a deck wash port.
by Kevin from South Carolina on June 26, 2011

A: Kevin - the Ariens 915141 does NOT have a deck washout port.

Q: the ariens zero turn mowers, do they have snow blowers available? and if so are they easy to mount? just trying to cut back on the number of gas engines to maintain. thanks Troy
by Troy Donth from Minnesota on June 11, 2011

A: Troy - Ariens does make a snow blower attachment that mounts to the front of their zero turn mowers. I would say the installation is moderate in terms of ease. We don't stock the snow blower attachment, but we would be able to special order it for you if you decide you want one. To be honest, the snow blower attachment is not a big seller, mostly because of the handling and traction of a zero turn mower on snow and ice. Give us a call if you want to find out more about the Ariens snow blower attachment for their zero turn mowers.

Ariens Zoom 42
It is a nice mower but it slides very easily, just the slightest grade it will go off course. I went to see about fluid for the tires but the guy said if you use it a lot it would be hard on the transmission. It clogs up very easily with taller grass, but I really like it other than that. If anyone has any ideas on the aforementioned problems please let me know.

My Ariens
The ordering was easy, the folks at the store answer all my questions, took care of my concerns. The "truck driver" was exceptional. We are very happy. Thank you so much.

Great First Zero Turn
I have used my Ariens ZTR mower twice now. I was initially afraid that sacrificing the HP to be able to afford the zero turn might make me unhappy but, that hasn't been the case. It took about two hours to get it un-crated, the deck leveled and ready to go. I have about a 1.25 acre lot with a few hills and a thick well established Bermuda lawn.

The 16.5 HP cuts through it all just fine and very evenly, much more so than my previous mower. I wish it had a mid-back or high-back seat to... more

Great Mower!!
I love my new lawn mower. I can cut my grass in half the time! I really love the Free shipping and NO TAX!!!! Mowers Direct was cheaper than any other place i looked online or in my town. The shipping was super fast. My old lawn mower broke one day after I mowed my yard. I went online and ordered my new Ariens and I had it before my yard needed to be mowed again. Also, love the Bill Me Later option!

Should Have Bought It Sooner!
I should have bought this sooner! The transaction was smooth and great. Had it in my garage in just 3 days. I received it in August so I got to use it a lot before winter set in.

Cut my mowing time from 5 hours to 1.5 hours. I had borrowed my neighbors zero turn when my tractor was broke down so I already had the operation of it down. Zero turns are a little tricky on hills especially doing a hill from side to side versus up and down. All in all I give it 5 stars! Plus it is made in the USA... more

Seems Great
Since we didn't get our mower until Nov., we haven't used it yet. We simply pushed it into the garage and will be looking forward to mowing with it come spring.

The ordering and delivery were simple and timely. Thanks, Mowers Direct!

Fast Service, Great 42" Zero Turn
I got the mower in late October. I was very happy with the delivery. Received it in 3 days and the truck line was able to
set the crate right in front of the garage door.

Due to weather, I have only used the mower once to actually do any mowing. It took about 25 min. vs. 45 min. on the old rider. Needless to say very little weed-eating.

I rate this a 5 based on my limited time of owning it.

My First Zero Turn
The mower does a great job. Cuts close around trees & shrubs. Makes tight turns so the job is done much quicker then with the regular tractor.

Some down points are when doing tight turns the grass is dug out under the pivot wheel. Need to get used to easing off the locking wheel.

Also I have a pond, and almost lost the tractor because it slides sideways on a hill that is slightly wet. So I cannot cut close around the pond.

Robert,
You may want to give the folks at Ariens a call to see if a set of tire chains will help control the sliding. They can be reached at (800) 472-8359, toll free.

Ariens 42 Zoom
After much research I decided that the Ariens was the unit that I wanted. Looking locally I found the same unit in a Gravely unit at a local dealer.

Very helpful folks and they convinced me that the Gravely unit was the same as the Ariens unit so I was able to actually see the physical product. I originally was going to go with the 34 inch deck model due to gate entries in my yard.

But the value of the 42 inch with the 16.5 hp over the 13.5 horsepower as well as the Warner electric... more
