Great Mulching!
Just bought one. Easy starting, but loud engine. Extra high deck makes for superior mulching! Side discharge chute opening is too small and is pointed too far back towards the operator. Any wind blows the clippings all over you! Adjustable handle works nice. One-lever height adjustment works slick! Mower does a great cut!
Pros: Features, Superior Mulching
Cons: Plastic Chute Needs Redesigned, Loud

Three Failures In The First 14 Mo
1 st the spring on the grass deflector broke and I was without my mower 5 weeks waiting for a new one.

2nd. The transmission failed. You guessed it another 5 weeks at the inefficient dealership.

Today the drive lever broke off in my hand. Ariens dealer will not get it again i just don't have the patience for their inefficiency. Typically the hold the machine for up to three weeks then look at it and genuinely seemed shocked that the repair will need parts and will have to order them... more

It's Just Ok.
While $399 is not excessively pricy for a lawnmower, this Ariens Razor is just ok. Probably just paying for the Ariens name. Nothing spectacular as someone else pointed out. After doing a little research on the engine after not being able to find out any information prior to my purchase, it turns out this "Ariens" engine is a Chinese Loncin brand engine. Ariens does not list the specs but as far a torque, the Loncin engine is rated at 8.5nM or approx. 6.25 lb ft of torque. hope... more

Won't Start
I couldn't get it to start and had to take it to authorized service 80 miles away. They fixed it, but it is still sluggish to start, needing multiple pulls before turning over. I think it mows pretty good and seems pretty easy to use. I have a little rough terrain and it does well on the high level. I would not buy from you again I got a lemon.

Impressed And Pleased With My Decision
Started on the first pull, drive mechanism worked well with the variable speed control and I really appreciated the single lever deck height adjustment feature. Not used to a bagging walk-behind mower holding the amount of clippings that it does before needing to dump the contents of which I am pleased. The unit as a whole seems to be quite solid. Overall I am happy with my purchase and feel like I have a good product. I look forward to using this mower for many years to come.

Well That Was Fun
Got my Ariens today followed all the directions, made 6 passes before the belt on the drive system failed, good luck having tools to the take the transmission bracket off to put the belt back.....got to say pretty disappointed to say the least.

Ok Mower
The Ariens is just an okay mower, nothing great. I am disappointed at paying $400 for it. The self propelled system is slow and not great. The worst part is hooking up the bag. Grass & dust flies out the side and top. Its very dusty with the bag on.

Its All About The Deck!!
I waited 3 months to write this review. Best mower I have ever owned. Forget the guys that say you cant mulch if the grass is wet, or you can only mulch about an inch at a time. You know that's not true! This mower does both at the same time!!
Pros: Durable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Mower (so Far...)
I received it Friday, and cut the front and back yard with ease. I'm 6' 2" so the adjustable handles for height were great. I did not realize how easy it was to adjust the height of all four wheels with the ball handle. I carry my 2.0 year-old son with my left arm and mow with my right so the self-propelled feature was f*cken tits...all the way. The handling was sturdy, the loudness of the motor was pretty typical, compared to other walk behind mowers. I love it so far. I don't know... more

Powerful Mower
Got it out of the box, started right up. Rear wheel drive takes some getting used to. Hard to push when engine is not running. Mulches great! Easy to operate, however, definitely not for seniors / kids. Way too heavy. Takes two to load it onto a vehicle. Drives like a truck- cumbersome on turns.
So far, it has performed well. 3 year Warranty.
Pros: Fast, Features, Easy To Store
Cons: Heavy

This Is A Potentially Dangerous Machine
Mr. Hernandez:

"I carry my 2.0 year-old son with my left arm and mow with my right..."

Please use both hands on the mower and keep the boy somewhere safe when using power tools.

Actually, I have an Ariens 911 series 21". It's getting old, is not convenient for oil change, mows a bit unevenly, works okay, and gets the job done. I won't replace it until it's dead.
