This is a Ariens 927 Riding lawn Mower (Rear Engine), An in Great Condition. My Mother bought this back in 96 or 97 and she used it 1 season, Before moving back down south. I have been storing it ever since, she has given me permission to get rid of it. The Mower is in great shape, it has a 8hp engine electric start and has a recoil as a back up. It says its a 6 speed transmission, but acts like a hydro-static. I placed a fresh battery in it and added gas and it started right up, runs very smooth. It has an adjustable deck with seperate mower clutch, no sign's of rust. 28" cut I cut my lawn with it a few days ago and It did a great job. I would keep it, but I need the room in my tool shed. It turn very sharp and cruise's at about 6 or 7mph +/- . You must see to appreciate it. I comes with both the Owners Manual and the Parts Manual. She told me she paid $1,899 for it New. I know it's not worth half of that today. Come look at it and make an offer and take it home today. I would be interested in a trade for a Walk Behind I'm 5 miles north of Detroit Metro Airport.
