Great Mower
I've used it for a month now. I love the mower! It cuts a perfect lawn. My wife is amazed how well it cuts. My only complaints are:
The tow hitch should be standard.

The oil filter makes a mess when removed and the should be a drain hole to allow oil to drain neatly under the mower into a pan.
There should be grease fittings on the front wheel pivots.

I tried my Dads toro timecutter yesterday and it don't even compare to the Ariens. This is a great mower and I love it. Mowing is no... more

Good Mower
Changed from a 42" Craftsman tractor mower to this 52" Zero turn. Save me an enormous amount of time. I got the Semi-Pro model because I have 5 acres in south Mississippi that is not nice on equipment and needed the durability of the fab deck and reinforced spindle.

The cut is amazing. Looks golf course flat. I do feel it is under-powered. If I mow full-speed, the engine gets bogged down only after a week's mow. The mower came ready to mow off the pallet. I have approximately 20... more
Pros: Quiet, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Under Powered

Beyond Satisfied
While preparing to increase our lawn care business, we were in search of a zero turn lawn mower. We were considering other brands as Husqvarna and Cub Cadet. I completed an internet search and Mower's Direct came up. We looked at the brands and cost, read online reviews and consulted relatives who used Ariens before.

For the cost, which includes free shipping, no taxes, and interest free payments, we were pleased. When we received our product and experienced the quality (sturdy frame),... more

Mowes Fast
The biggest selling point for me on this mower was the fabricated steel deck, and the speed and height that it will mow at.
All in all we really like the mower, but the draw backs are that it is too rigid to let the front end contour to any uneven ground causing it to lift one tire off the ground then to lose traction on the rear tires. I would recommend the mower to a friend if their yard is relatively smooth. Also, because of the speed that it will mow at I would highly recommend adding a... more

Satisfied With My Purchase
My 52 inch Ariens zero turn mower came fully assembled with one exception which could have been a factory oversight. The tensioning spring on the idler pulley of the deck had not been installed and it was floating around in the bottom of the crate. No big deal to install it. It also makes a terrible rattling sound when the PTO is first engaged; I need to get some advice on that.

Mowers Direct delivered everything promised and then some. It's a great place to shop for equipment.

My Ariens Tennessee
I have been looking for a new Zero Turn for about a year. I have a Gravely ZT2252 and it is a good Zero Turn. I was going to get the HD 52 Zero Tune Gravel. but the price and taxes was to high. Then I hear about mowers Direct and looked at there web. they had good information about all the Zero Turn. Grate prices, free shipping. Love this co. P.E.D. I hear that Ariens and Gravely has merge together so I started to look at Ariens. The Ariens MaxZoom52 had all i needed and more then the HD... more

My Ariens In Tenn
I'm Thomas from Gallatin, Tenn. I now have 51 hrs on my Ariens MaxZoom52 and I still Love it. It's the best Zero Turn I have ever used.. Good on Gas, Good on cutting, starts right up, it is a real work horse. My traction problem is over. I put on a heavy-duty engine guard and trailer hitch. Added about 50 pounds to the back. Their was a rattle coming from the deck so I put on new mulch blades, now it is smooth no more rattle. And cuts even better. I'm very happy with my Ariens. I just want you... more

52 Max Zoom
I mow over two acres of lawn. Used to mow with 50 inch garden tractor, which took about two and a half hours. With the new Ariens Max Zoom, I mow it in an hour and a half, and the cut quality is unbelievable.

This mower is built like a tank, and it's a very smooth running machine. I also own a Ariens snowblower. They make very good quality equipment - better than your regular homeowner grade. I'm a very satisfied customer.

Perfect Alternative To Commericial Grade Machine.
I replaced my Toro Z master mower with this less expensive and very capable machine.It does everything the more expensive mower did and is easy to use.The tires are smaller than my older model and have a little less traction than my older mower on steep slopes.

However the smaller tires allow me to get even closer to obstacles like trees and makes my trimming time much shorter. Why pay a lot more for a mower than one needs to. This mower meets all of my needs at a much more affordable price... more
