Ariens Lawn Tractor 46


The Ariens Lawn Tractor 46 ride-on mower is powered by a 2-cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine, with a displacement of 0. 656 liters and 22 HP of power. Engine power is transferred to the wheels via a hydrostatic transmission. This hydrostatic transmission gives the Ariens 46″ riding mower infinite speeds traveling forward and backward. Hydrostatic transmissions are increasingly commonly found on most of the newer ride on mowers. The main reason for this is that it just makes it so much easier to operate. The maximum speed of the Ariens 46-inch mower is 8. 8 kph (5. 5 mph) in forward and 4 kph (2. 5 mph) in reverse.

If you are looking for a similar but slightly smaller model to the Ariens 46 Lawn Tractor Mower, then take a look at the Ariens 42 Lawn Tractor Ride On Mower. However it’s something bigger than you’re after, then the Ariens Lawn Tractor 54 might interest you. The cutting deck on the Ariens 46-inch riding mower has a 46-inch cutting width. This mower deck can be raised as high as 4 inches above the ground you are mowing and as low as 1. 5 inches above the ground. This allows the operator to always find a suitable height to cut the grass. Grass clippings are discharged out the side of the mower deck. There is a rubber discharge cap to guide clippings and prevent them from flying out and hitting someone nearby.

The deck of the Ariens 46-inch mower is made of 12-gauge steel for strength. The fuel tank of this model can hold up to 9. 5 liters of gasoline. The total weight of this Ariens 46-inch mower is 223. 6 kg.

5 Reviews of the Ariens Lawn Tractor 46

Satisfied but would be happier with another brand.

I should have stuck with the 20 year old Husky I was using as it turned out to be much more reliable. I will not buy any of your products again.

I just bought this HD for less than $ 1200 delivered! I made purchases and looked at everything from Craftsman, Mtd, JD, Husq, whatever, anything below $ 2000. I bought an Ariens tractor before: a 2009 with the Kohler Courage engine of 20HP and 46 ″ cut, but whatI sold after two seasons due to relocation in a condominium where the outside was taken care of. The tractor worked perfectly during those two seasons (approximately 50 hours in total) and was also able to take advantage of a free blade promotion for life that Home Depot and Ariens had recite at that time, which fortunately with this model ofReplacement using the same blade size, will be able to be carried out for a few years. This new model is only differentiated by the B& S engine and with all the negative comments that I have read on the Internet about the light Kohler engines (such as courage), it seemed a successful decision to opt for the B& M version. Time will tell.

Anyway, the best lawn tractor for its price anywhere!

In summary, although it is a reliable and robust host, I would not buy another equal, so I do not recommend your purchase.

Pros explained: – The corteped rings faithfully and works without problems. Although I have to start the engine for about five or six seconds before suddenly starting, I have never had problems to start it. When the engine is hot, start again in a second fraction. During two seasons of mowing, he has not broken up once.- It seems to be built lasting. It is made of heavy steel and has a solid touch.- The address is very easy. When I bought it, it seemed an assisted address, but over time it became a little harder. I probably need lubrication work, which I haven’t done yet. But, even now he goes much easier than my old John Deere.- The turn relationship is very good. However, you need to be careful not to allow the left wheel of the cover to work in a tree, or what you are rotting around.- The seat is comfortable, whenever you do not move on potholes.- It has a speed control mounted on the fender instead of a pedal.

Cons explained: – Although the seat has a dock to help shine the blows, it is too strong and does not offer much protection against blows. Because I have chronic back problems, and our lawn has some areas with potholes, from time to time I have to reduce speed to approximately 1/3 of the normal advance speed to reduce blows. This cutcase replaced our John Deere Speaker of 46, which had no problem to cushion these potholes.- The transmission does not respond sufficiently smoothly when passing from stop to advance. However, it seems to be gently of f-back. It is difficult to prevent the corteped from jumping forward. Part of the reason is that you have to throw a little from the lever to the left and then forward, but if it is thrown too much, you cannot push forward.(To go back, you must pull it towards you until the end and then backwards, which is much easier). The other reason is that the lever is a bit rigid, so you have to exert some pressure to move forward. But, once it is free to move forward it is difficult to prevent it from moving too much, too fast. However, this rigidity on the lever has a positive side: it stays still once you find the speed you want.(My John Deere moved so easily that he always slowed unless he kept his left hand on the lever).- They say that the cutting platform allows cutting depths of 1-1/2 to 4 inches. However, the three wheels of the roof can be adjusted only to about 2-1/2 inches. Raising the roof more than that will result in wheels that are too far from the earth, resulting in the unequal cut. You need two keys to adjust the wheels, so it is a pain to change the heights. In addition, there are only three wheels instead of four. Even when I have the corteped in position #6 (the highest adjustment), there are a number of places in our grass where the grass is constantly cut, leaving a dirty area. This is especially where we have hills. The cutter platform simply does not follow the curves, probably due to the lack of the fourth wheel.- The cutting platform, for some reason, has a great opening at the top, exposing the blades. Although the rubber protector normally covers it, from time to time he gets up when he cuts near the trees. When that happens, I receive a gust of grass cut in the face. Having that opening is also a considerable danger because if you put your hand inside, you can miss a few fingers. To avoid this problem, I bought the optional Mulching kit,

and the accessory covers the upper part of the closure, as well as the grass discharge opening.(By the way, crushing the grass very well, even when the grass is wet.) – The closure of gum for grass is excessively long. It cannot approach less than 30 cm from an obstacle (such as a tree or a bush) on the right side of the cutter without hitting the closure. Although the closure is open and flexible, it does not move out of the way very easily. In addition, if you manage to pass the obstacle, the closure returns to its position. But, once this occurs, you cannot go back beyond the obstruction because the closure only flexes or rises when progress is made. This is annoying when you have to go back from a small space. When this happens, there is no easy way to manually lift the closure. I solved the problem by adding a rope to the closure, passing it through a support near the light switch, and adding a shooter at that end. This works satisfactorily. However, once I bought the Mulching accessory, the rubber closure was no longer necessary, so I permanently tied it with the rope to stay in a totally vertical position, outside the road.(Unfortunately, you cannot easily remove rubber closure, in addition to having to be in its place to fix the Mulching cover).(By the way, it is quite easy to place or remove this mulching cover, and I strongly recommend getting one).- Another important problem is that traction is poor. I constantly stuck, especially in the mountainous areas. One of the rear wheels rotates freely. Sometimes go back and try again works, but other times I have to bow to the side that turns to force the wheel to return to the ground. My tractor John Deere never had this problem. Maybe it is a suspension design problem.- A lower discomfort are the key positions. I guess I should be grateful that the design allows you to go back without having to stop the blades. To start the engine, the key is turned completely in the direction of the clock needles, as expected. But, when you release it, it enters the safety mode, in which the engine goes out every time you try to reverse. To avoid this, they have added another ignition position by turning the key a notch in the opposite direction to the clock needles. Maybe it’s because I’m getting old, but even after my second mowing season, I usually forget to turn it to that position, so it doesn’t spend much time before the engine goes out the first time I try to go back. This key switch settings can be a safety requirement, and this may be normal design.
