I like my new mower, I have only mowed 2 times so I can’t say how it will hold up,looks to be well built and really does a good job, I wouldn’t recommend for a very uneven landscape because of the wide 52” deck,  cuts like a dream on mine except for one hump and I have got it figured out . and as for Jack’s the people that I bought it from, they can’t be beat for being professional and very helpful in answering my questions and shipping was very prompt.....Thank you

The mower runs very smoothly and cuts grass far better than my 54 inch cub cadet riding mower. 5 stars for the cut!. I have used it twice now and the first time out the right front tire popped and came off the rim. :( I have a patch kit so tubeless tire was fixed in about 3 minutes. The second time I cut the grass the left front tire 
popped and came off the rim.  Again, not a big deal to patch but 2 times out, 2 flat tires... What are the odds?  I would suggest you buy a patch kit if you plane on buying this mower.  I am looking into solid tires now. I though it actually had solid tires on the front when I bought it. It doesnt but it should. Other than the front tires I am thoroughly impressed with the mower and I would recommend it.  And it makes cutting the grass fun again. At least for a while.  Happy mowing!

The mower is fantastic it being my first zero turn, and for the price, this Ariens XD is much better built than comparable zero turns built by the more famous names. I mow six acres and it really cut down mowing time a lot. However, it came with some damage to the left side and also the engine blower cover. I called immediately, knew the damage didn't affect the mower's ability to work correctly, sent the requested pictures, was assured the replacement parts would be sent and that was a few weeks ago with no word from Jack's since then. If I get the four replacement parts, I'll change it to five stars.
