Merkmale & Vorteile

Industry-leading frame design

Large-dimensioned tubular frame and as few weld seams as possible, thanks to automotive bending technology, carry the loads of the machine with unrivalled strength and stability.

Professional mowing deck

The mowing deck is the most heavily loaded component of a mower. Stability is particularly important here. The ZENITH has a 14 cm deep, fully welded cutting deck made of 3.2 mm thick sheet steel with double spindle supports, 12.7 mm steel edge, enclosed anti-scalp wheels, all-steel belt pulleys, welded 4-point suspension, high-quality blade spindles made of forged aluminium for cooler running and greater resistance to vibrations and an optimised air flow. Everything about it is designed for the cleanest cut and a long service life.

Automatic belt tensioner system

The automatic CBT (Constant Belt Tension) technology keeps the belt tension of the mower deck constant at all times. This increases the service life of the belt, compensates for wear and prevents belt slippage for a consistently high-quality cutting pattern.


The standard rollover protection system with safety belt (ROPS) offers additional protection for the driver. It is foldable and ergonomically tilted backwards to prevent painful bumping of the elbow while driving.

Mower deck lifting by foot pedal

The solid cutting deck is raised conveniently and effortlessly using a foot pedal. To select one of the 15 cutting heights from 3.8 - 12.7 cm, a metal plug is inserted into the respective recess in the display.

Fully adjustable comfort seat

Maximising operator comfort is essential to work productively and safely for hours on end. Keeping hard shocks and vibrations away from the driver is particularly important for his well-being and health. The hydro-pneumatic suspension can be precisely adjusted to the operator's body weight. Adjustable, padded armrests, high backrest and lumbar support allow the rider to find their ideal sitting position. In combination with the ZENITH's standard wheel fork suspension, the result is a soft, comfortable ride.

User comfort for long mowing jobs in public spaces. Efficient work that is fun and enjoyable.

Suspended wheel forks, optimum seating comfort or ergonomic, upright driving position on the ARROW models protect the user and increase their well-being.

Service providers

Time is money for a service provider. Modern zero-turn mowers are therefore particularly popular with them. Time savings of up to 40 % come into their own here. Daily changing job sites and high annual operating times place demands on the material. The Ariens APEX and ARROW zero-turn models bring momentum and speed to the daily work of lawn care service providers.

Janitorial services

The constantly changing activities of a janitor service are part of daily routine. Regular lawn mowing is often perceived as a chore and is particularly time-consuming. With a zero-turn mower, you'll be done faster. You can save up to 40% time compared to a conventional lawn tractor. The Ariens IKON is made for private gardens of any size or even semi-professional applications. For smaller janitor services, it is the ideal machine for mowing green spaces quickly and maneuverably.
