  • Industrial Strength Mower
  • September 29, 2011
  • Verified Purchase

The Ariens Pro 21 is extremely well-built (in the USA!) with a high-quality Kawasaki engine. Mulching feature works so well I never bother to use the bag. The only disadvantage is that it is so well constructed of thick gauge steel that it weighs 100 lbs! Fortunately, the self-propelled rear wheels work well and make it easier to turn than the the front-drive models of mower. I spent considerable time searching for a well-made mower and am convinced this is one of the best.

  • Great mower, but.............

This mower is undoubtedly a commercial product. It is very well constructed, and has a strong engine. However it is very heavy, 120 lbs., and as such is hard to manuever without engaging the drive. It has a great cut, starts right up, and runs smooth. The only problem I've encountered is a tendancy to stall when on an incline. I hope after I research this I will find a simple solution. I got free shipping with this item, and it was trucked right to my garage, a nice plus.

  • Alot of trouble starting

The self propelled mower worked 3 times and then would not start. We tried everything and we were finally told that you need to use a mid. or high grade gas. If this is the case it should be indicated in the manual.

I have owned the same Ariens mower since 1992. During that time all of my neighbors have gone through 3 machines (Toro). I convinced my next door neighbor to get an Ariens about 11 years ago and they are still using that. They are great for bagging but I use mine almost exclusively for mulching and it does a great job. My boys used it in a business for about 10 years mowing anywhere from 10 to 20 lawns a week. But now I just use it to mow my lawn every week. The Briggs engine still starts on the first or second pull. My parents have now bought Ariens on my recommendation and love it. It has outlasted my brother's honda. It still looks nice. The paint job is the best in class. If you want quality and endurance Ariens's is the best.

  • After 25+ years of mowing with 7 discarded mowers I finally have the BEST
  • June 12, 2012
  • Recommended Product

It took some research but I am happy I finally found this Ariens LM 21 S lawn mower. THE GOOD: I bought this mower 2 years ago and I'm convInced it's perfect for me. Even with imperfect grass from the drought this mower makes it look great. It's easy to start, easy to mow with and always looks good doing it.THE BAD: 3 Honda, 2 Toro, 2 Craftsman. It was always the same. I was convenced that there was no walk behind rear wheel self propelled mower that didn't have trouble after about 6 times of using. I think they were all made as a bad joke. It always started with the rear wheels locking when pulling the mower backwards.

  • Purchased in 1986 - LS21 S
  • June 20, 2012
  • Recommended Product

Purchased this mower when I lived in Chicago in 1986. Move to NC then to Pa, back thru IL, to California, Maryland and now Virginia. Let me say this, it still runs great, cranks on first pull, and does a super job all these years. I have had no major issues, just a tire, a primer bulb, and last week the handle bar broke in half at the engage lever. But after a call to my local dealer, I had a new handle bar in two days and back at it. I thought about a new mower, but why? This is a super mower, and it still looks great!

This is a good mower,but wish it had the feature that you can shut off the blade without shutting the engine off. I often pick up small twigs and end up have to shut engine off. This is my first Ariens mower so will see how many years it will last.

  • 21 years old and still running cast-iron sleeve is the key to a good mower
  • June 30, 2012
  • Recommended Product

Upgrade to the best! Buy an ariens LM 21S! The self-propelled on this mower is industry-leading it not only pulls you uphills but it stops you from rolling down hills when turned on. The other thing I like about ariens mowers is their use of quality engines most mowers on the market use aluminum cylinders which wear out very quickly the Kawasaki Engine has a cast-iron sleeve my ariens mower has a Tecumseh vector engine which also has a cast-iron sleeve. Honda mowers do not have cast-iron sleeves nor do most MTD mowers or craftsman this is a very good mower for anyone who want something that will last. The deck is very well constructed, my neighbor just throughout a Honda mower with a rusted out deck that was much newer.

  • Had to replace needle in carb after the first off season to keep it running.
  • July 10, 2012

After the first off season I had to replace the needle in the carb to get it to start and run, this was in spite of using a gas stabilizer. That issue aside, this mower runs like new and cuts clean. It gets the job done.
