Ariens Mower Information || Current Model Features Overview
The Ariens company is a family owned company that manufactures outdoor power equipment, mainly lawn mowers primarily of the Zero turning radius design. Throughout most of its history the Ariens Company produced a variety of outdoor power equipment but in recent years has focused mainly on the hugely expanding market of zero-turning machines.
The RER (rear-engine rider) series is still being made but is slated to be abandoned soon.
Ariens makes a walk-behind string trimmer model ST622 which is a 6 horsepower(HP) 22 inch cut string trimmer with 4 strings.
Ariens Company also makes a premium line of walk-behind and self-propelled lawn mowers for people who want to purchase more that a throw away mower. It is designed to last for years with all the features that you would like to have to make your lawn chores pleasant instead of a pain. Ariens walk-behind mowers are 3-in-1 mowers that gives you the flexibility to do whatever needed- side-discharge, mulch, or bag your clippings of grass. Rather than being tied to a dedicated mulcher, Ariens gives you the options for what you need at any particular time of year or weather or grass conditions. The rear bagger makes the unit compact so you can trim on either side and allows the operator to dump it in only seconds. Available with swivel front wheels or straight axle. Rear wheel drive is a feature that makes driving uphill easy. Large rear wheels on the Ariens push mowers make it easy to push on softer ground or with a full bag of grass clippings. A Dethatcher is available which comes off in seconds. A leaf shredder is also available. Electric start walk-behind model mowers make pulling a thing of the past. The Ariens walk-behind mower is also available in a commercial version. All of the Ariens mowers have a 21 inch cut.
The Zoom series of riders has proven to be a solid seller for the Ariens company mainly because of its quality craftmanship, simple design, and extremely competitive price. The Zoom series riders start out around 15 horsepower and 40 inch cut and go up to around 23 horsepower and 52 inch cuts. The mini-Zooms can be ordered in as small a cut as 34 inches for those people that require a smaller mower to fit through gates or narrow areas or trees or just don't have that much to mow. The Ariens Zoom mowers primarily feature Kohler Courage engines and Hydro-Gear EZT and IZT hydrostatic transmission systems. The Kohler Courage air-cooled engines that are designed for consumer use. Earlier production featured Kohler Command engines which are designed for Commercial users. These are much higher priced engines so they were even more of a bargain.
The Ariens Zoom mowers have many attachments and options available. One of the most popular being the bagger unit. The Ariens bagger features a vac drive with double or triple bags and is very reasonably priced for what you get. Plastic buckets are capable of holding plastic garbage bags so the operator can simply pull out the bag for easy disposal.
The Ariens XL Zoom mowers are designed as a heavy duty commercial mower for the owner that requires a mower to do more than a consumer mower is designed to mow. The XL series features wheel motor/pump drive system for a more heavy duty transmission system.
