Q: How does this trimmer hold up to rocky TX hill country?
by Ray from Texas on August 21, 2013

A: Ray,

The high wheels on the ST622 give this trimmer a major advantage on rocky terrain, but you will have to always watch where you are trimming. You have to make sure the rocks you are going over are lower than your trimmer underbelly. You would then be risking a cracked trimmer head...not good!

Q: how is the cutting height adjusted? i have a booklet however, i can't find how to adjust the height on this weed whacker.
by Bill Laliberte from Massachusetts on July 22, 2013

A: Bill,

The standard cutting height is adjustable from
1-3/16" to 4-3/8" (3 to 11.1 cm). To raise the
cutting height, place more spacers (up to 4)
below the cutter disk. Spacers not used under
the cutter disk must be assembled above the
cutter disk. For example, if you place two
spacers under the cutter disk, the other two
spacers must be in place above the cutter
disk.
NOTE: There must always be at least one
spacer between the cutter disk and the height
guide.

Q: Is there nylon covered blade attachments you can buy for this walk behind trimmer to handle the thicker brush instead of using the trimmer line?
by Barry from Minnesota on May 07, 2013

A: Barry - sorry, but none of the walk behind trimmers that we sell can be converted to use a brush blade.
by Marissa, Product Expert

Q: Does it have a primer bulb? Ron
by Ron Cook from Montana on July 22, 2011

A: Ron - yes, the 4-cycle engine on the Ariens 946152 string trimmer requires you to push a primer bulb two or three times when starting the engine in a "cold" state. Once the engine is warmed up, there is no need to use the primer bulb.
by Marissa, Product Expert

Q: What sort of slope would this trimmer handle?
by Bob Milburn from Oregon on April 30, 2011

A: Bob - the manufacturer's specifications state up to a 19 degree incline, but I have seen this work on inclines up to 30 degrees if you are strong enough to push it up a grade that steep.
by Marissa, Product Expert

Q: I have a large pond in my back yard that needs to be trimmed around. Would this string trimmer mower be the right tool for the job? The handheld trimmers are too hard on my back.
by Kerry Phelps from Tennessee on April 24, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, this trimmer would be perfect forthat application. It will be easier on your back and more powerful than a handheld.
by Marissa, Product Expert

Q: Can you turn the pull start Ariens walk behind string trimmer ST622 into a key start?
by Jan Burle from Missouri on March 31, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This trimmer cannot be converted to a key start.

Good For Weeds, But Not A Bush Hog
This is a well designed walk-behind string trimmer, and I am generally very satisfied with it. It was delivered to the front of my garage in a big box, which I cut away. It was all assembled, so I just needed to unfold and tighten the handles. After reading the manual, I added the motor oil that was enclosed, put some gas in it, and it started on the first pull. The Kohler engine runs smoothly and is relatively quiet.

For trimming around the lawn, it does a very fine job. It also works... more

Arien's Trimmer
Arien's trimmer is all it said it would be. Great trimmer for the money. Put in the oil that came with it and some gas two pulls and it was off and running.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

Minor Defect From Manufacturer Sours Purchase
My experience with the trimmer is contrary to the good ratings and high price of the trimmer.

The product had a minor product defect. It will be a warranty item with Ariens. I'm not too happy with the Ariens walk behind trimmer. A broken flange bushing is preventing use of the new trimmer.

I had problems with Ariens customer support and cannot use the trimmer until I get a part.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Arrived With A Broken Flange Bushing Prevented Head Rotation

Great In Heavy Brush.
I have a 6 foot right-of-way almost a quarter mile long complete with boulders, briars, heavy brush, and some debris. This machine plowed through it all with minimal fuss and without changing the string. The ability to swing the string head to left or right is a great feature.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Higher Priced But Disappointing.
My first trimmer arrived in a box that was so badly mangled and oil stained that I returned it to String trimmers Direct with no hesitation on their part.

My second trimmer arrived intact. While preparing it for use I noticed even before starting that the self tapping screws with washers used to fasten the thick rubber skirt that shields the discharge chute were already pulling through the rubber. I added larger washers to prevent the screws from pulling completely through.

I was... more

Amazing Trimmer
I have a 2.5 acre place it got overgrown with weeds after the winter rain. I was looking at waist high weeds within a month.
I bought the Airens trimmer and this beast powered by a Kohler did the job really well .

Easy to start and change the strings. It was worth it. I considered cheaper brands, but quality is important to me. I'll need to use this trimmer every winter/ spring.

Great Weed Whacker
I bought one of these 13 years ago when we lived in the country. It cut everything in its path. 7 years ago we moved to the city and the weed whacker went to storage.

Well today I pulled it out and the second pull it started and began cutting like the day it was new. Unbelievable! I really recommend it if you need a weed whacker that really eats tough weeds.
Pros: Features, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

Ariens Walk Benind Trimmer Won't Start
I bought the trimmer, got it home and it started one time. I took it to the local Ariens service center. They had it for a month, couldn't find anything wrong. It started after they set the timing, cleaned the carburetor (machine had less than 5 hours on it), and got it to start using the "auto choke" feature.

I got it home, tried to start it several days later, and it would not start using the controls on the handlebar. I resorted to my old standlby, taking the air cleaner... more

Harold,
I apologize for you dissatisfaction with your purchase. I know that during the spring/summer seasons many of the service centers are backlogged due to the number of repairs needed on lawn and garden equipment. I have forwarded your review of the unit to the manufacturer as well so they are aware of the issue.

Unfortunately, due to this being purchased a year ago, I am not able to offer much assistance from this point and I am unsure as to why the service center was not able to determine an internal issue. We appreciate your feedback and I apologize once again.

I have many feet of woven wire fence to trim and this tool makes it much easier to trim the fence over a hand held string trimmer.

Too Pricey
I purchased the unit for grass and weed trimming - it does 80% of the job but was disappointed in the total unit for the total cost. One major issued was the flange unit that holds the cutting threads in place "actually" wore through the metal flange and failed to function. I called Ariens and they sent me another replacement flange. They claim that I was pushing "down" to hard while I was using the trimmer. My outline areas of my property are NOT level and some of the... more
