Hello - I would also appreciate feedback. The local True Value hardware store is selling 1 of these models this year. My main one (2000 MTD) came from these guys, and I try to buy from them if possible. I see the model in the local store has a Loncin engine (I think that is what it said on the decal).

Hey there! I moved your post to its own thread so that you'll get better coverage.

Ariens has a good reputation, but I'd think hard before purchasing a mower with a Chinese clone engine on it such as a Loncin, because they are not known for stellar quality.

loncins are very good engines, if you take care of it it will last a long time. they are a major manufacturer of mopeds, motorcycles and other engine powered goods in china and also make the predator engines for harbor freight

Cheaply made lawn mower, Cheaply made chinese engine. You get what you pay for.

I've had to replace carburetors on these machines after only a year of use, The magnetos also constantly go bad.

Buy something with a Briggs and Stratton, Honda, Or Kawasaki engine.
