My wife and I recently moved to a new house with a spacious yard, way bigger than that of the former home. Due to the size, we decided we were going to have to hire someone to do the mowing.
A few days later, as I was busy making inquiries about who to hire, my wife made a new friend at the store with whom she shared the issue with. Incidentally, she also moved into the area a couple of months back, and she and her husband had the same issue initially. She went on to tell my wife about Ariens Zoom 34 and how it not only solved the problem but also made mowing easier than ever.
- 34" Cutting Width
- 19 HP/660 CC Engine Power
- KOHLERA 6000 Series Engine
- Not much
This machine, which a zero-turn mower, saves time and effort. It is easy on the operator and ensures lawns are mowed and trimmed neatly. It is a top choice if you want to up your game from the regular sit and ride mower to a zero-turn mower. Most riding mowers come with a steering wheel, which can be difficult to control due to the immense amount of energy required to steer the machine. However, that hassle has been overcome with the Ariens Zoom 34 zero-turn mower as no steering is involved.

Some of the interesting features the Ariens Zoom 34 include:
- Solid construction: The use of durable materials in the manufacture, such as steel of high quality and hard plastic, adds heft to the mower making it rugged. It weighs 425lbs, which, because some weigh more 600lbs, is not too much.
- High back seat: The seat of the mower is often overlooked, but it plays a huge role in ensuring comfort as well as the overall experience and performance of the mower. This product comes with an 18-inch seat, which is well padded and provides good back support. It also makes it possible to access all the controls.
- First-rate 19 HP KOHLER 6000 Series Engine: The engine is made by the Kohler company, which is known for the manufacture of powerful and durable engines for residential and non-residential premises. These 19 HP 6000 series engines have a 660c displacement, which allows it to mow a one-acre lawn in about half an hour.
- Large Fuel Tank: The substantial size of the fuel makes it possible to mow the lawn for longer hours. The fuel tank has a capacity of two gallons and also comes with a fuel indicator.
- Handy power brakes: The brake levers are all incorporated into the handlebars, making them quickly and easily accessible to the operator. The very powerful brakes allow the mower to come to a stand-still within a short duration of time.
- Large Deck Size: The deck of the Ariens Zoom 34 mower measures 34-inches with a thickness of 12-inches. It is made of high-quality steel, which is resistant to both heat and corrosion. Thus, increasing its durability.
The mower has plugs for bagging and mulching, which need to be purchased separately as additional accessories. It has an impressive bagging performance and only discards the clippings after the bag is filled. The Ariens Zoom 34 is such a joy to use. Learning to control the mower with its two handlebars was quite easy for me, and I particularly like the superb maneuverability; I make swift and precise turns with minimum effort. The mower is solid and would last a long time. I would give it 4.5 out of 5.
