Is Ariens a good mower.

Hi im new to the fourms,
I am only 14 and I have a lawn care bussiness my dad had a Gravley Promaster zerosteer that I used to cut my own grass and my clients grass.
I reclently sold it because I downsized to a smaller yard that is only 1 1/2 acres my yard used to be 4 1/2 acres and I was just wondering if Ariens is a good mower?

Had one since 1986 and ran it until three years ago. Model RM830. 8hp w/ 30" cut. It cut over an acre every week from Apr till Oct. I change out the engine to a 12.5hp about 4 years before it was retired. Not sure how they are today???

my ariens 21" 15 years and running strong no problems until this year the case gasket was leaking and thats only because i found out the front bolts came loose. replaced the gasket and runs super smooth even the wheel and disc system for the drive system still work well.

With every brand you have different levels of equipment. the cheap zero is just that a zero made as cheaply as possible. They will not take much abuse or in some cases much use at all.

I have a single stage Ariens snow thrower, 21" walk behind lawn mower w/front swivel wheels 6.75 hp, and a rear engine rider 32" cut with a 13hp motor w/bagger works excellent for picking up leaves. Honest not a lick of problems not one little or major problem (knock on wood)
