Good Deal!
Fine, American made mower. Solid construction and smooooth cut. Excellent, fabricated deck. Be aware, mower has smaller rear tires than some other zero turn cutters. Therefore, your speed will be just a bit slower than some other competitors. Up side of that is you tear up the grass less because acceleration won't spin the rear wheels as much.

Mower arrived on time on a huge truck with a hydraulic gate. Was able to pull pallet with my tractor onto our property and then begin the... more

Not What I Expected So Far
I bought my 52 inch Kohler zero turn on line from Mowers Direct which was easy as hitting a button. Back ordered it took 4 weeks to arrive, it came in a crate with poor instructors which lacked clear verbal and only pictures of how to put the parts on the lawn mower. I had to guess where the seat strap went. Filled it up started and off I went.

The lawn mower ran great but the levers where un-even and the tractor did not turn to the right as precise as the left turn. The right rear locking... more

Thank you so much for your recent purchase of the Ariens IKON and for providing valuable feedback in regards to your new machine.

Good Move
I've had my Ariens for almost one month. I like all the features on my mower, however, what I like most is the height settings and the deck pedal which raises the deck. When the height has been set, it is set.

I don't need to worry if I hit a bump, will the deck fall to the ground. Rocks or roots are simply pedaled over and I move on. by the way, shipping came before I expected, to my house, and the driver put it in my garage for me. I made a good move.

So Far Very Good But Getting It In A Huge Wood Frame A Issue
Looked all over, read reviews and such and thought this was a great buy. I got mine with the B& S engine. I mow about 2 acre,s Lawn and the rest another 3 area,s grasses. paid $50 extra and driver pulled Box to near my Pole Barn. I must say taking it out of Box and putting it together was not a fun task.

The learning Curve for me a 76 year old man is longer than a few minutes. The mower does a very good job mowing plus the engine is extra powerful. Up here in MI we have road ditches and... more

Ariens = Great Mower. Mowers Direct = Great Seller
I came across Mowers Direct in an online search looking for a zero turn mower. I wanted a fabricated deck, the Ariens was exactly what I was looking for, and it was $200 off. I couldn't be more pleased with the mower and with Mowers Direct.

"This is a sturdy, well-built, powerful machine. I love the fabricated deck. Still getting used the lap bar and wide deck but mowing time is cut in half. Mowers Direct did a great job and mower shipped on time even though it was back ordered. Will not hesitate to order from them again. The only negative was the pallet Ariens used had spaces between boards that were wider than the front wheels which made it difficult to get the mower off the pallet. Overall, though, I am very satisfied."

Rugged
It's a great machine. Very well built. I was very impressed with the motor itself, it has the Kohler motor. Starts right up and does a beatiful job of mowing. Comfortable and fast, really like ruggedness of mowing deck.

I'm Amazed At The Speed!
I've had this mower for just short of a week. I've got about 4 acres I mow that are full of trees and slopes. I've mowed half of this acreage in half the time! As the work week is just ending, I was not able to mow until late in the day. I was amazed how fast I was able to mow in spending just 40 minutes of my day on two areas.

Starts up easily and takes about 30 minutes to get used to the steering. I recommend practicing (which I'll do with my wife today) about that amount of time so... more

Exceeds Expectations
Prior to owning the Ariens IKON X52 (915177 - 2015 Model), I used a 54" standard tractor mower. The Ariens mower is smaller . . . 52" . . . but has dramatically cut my mowing time! The Mower's Direct website helped me compare various mowers and I selected this particular model.

Delivery was right on time, and I was able to track it every step of the way. The delivery, itself, went very smoothly and the driver was exceptional. He helped me move it to the back of my property,... more
Pros: Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, High Quality

So Far, So Good
I am mostly saving my new Ikon till I get to my new home in Pa. So far there is no comparison to my Lowe's bought Troy built Zero turn. The Kohler engine was never a problem (the best) but the flimsy workmanship and poor gauge of the pre-fab mowing deck for the Troy Bilt made it flimsy where after a few years of use I could almost bend the metal by hand.

With the Ariens Icon the metal is welded and a much heavier gauge, what I would normally see in a more commercial mower. Can't wait to... more

Great Product
I mow a little over three acres and had a traditional riding mower. Having to spend 4 hours every week, I felt I needed something to provide a better cut in faster time. The Ariens IKON X-52 is an outstanding product with a commercial like presence at a residential price. Great product and highly recommend it to others with similar needs.

Great Machine Professional Grade
Wanted that nice stripe look on my lawn. Well I got it ! This mower does a fantastic job manicuring my yard. The only thing I would advise is that the mower height lift pedal could be hard for somebody with no leg strength to depress to change selection of cutting height. But for me it's no problem.

Assembly not difficult at all but I do maintenance work for a living. Runs good , steers good. Not really that hard to get use to compared to a traditional style mower. Delivery was excellent.... more

Finally Recieved
I ordered this 4-6-15 hoping to have for spring to cut my acre plus yard, since the grass grows a little faster. Well it did have a back order of 4-16, well it roll around another back order 5-14 well another back order 6-2.

This was my first zero turn and was excited as a kid waiting for Christmas to come just like Christmas to a kid slow. Now it hot the grass slow down so now it finally shows up on 6-3-15 on my birthday. I did get to cut my grass one time and glad I bought just wish they... more
