Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

I have a twelve year old Ariens Classic LM21 Push mower (Not self-propelled) with the original swivel wheel kit and this is the best mower I have ever owned. I've had MTDs, Poulans, and even top-end Craftsman mowers, but this is still my "go-to" mower for my DIY-landscaped quarter-acre corner lot. Nothing mulches nearly as well, or can spread side discharge clippings so far and evenly (which I attribute to the unique shape and end-notches on the high-lift 21" blade). The original Tecumseh 5hp engine was replaced about ten years ago with a better Briggs and Stratton 190cc 6.5hp Quantum XRM one, and it is really powerful. IMHO, the newer Kawasaki 179cc engines aren't quite as "beefy" though they are indeed a little quieter and likely sip a bit less fuel. I confess I am something of a "convert" now, because I was always the type of guy that lusted after owning a top end Honda or Commercial Honda mower. Yeah, Honda mowers are still "exotic" and well engineered and usually very well-made and QC'd, but when it comes to season-to-season maintenance, reliability, and even "friendly neighbor mower-envy"- the Ariens turns heads. My one neighbor liked mine so much after borrowing it repeatedly (lol), he went and bought a brand new Gravely... because he preferred the color Red to Orange! They are doing it right in Wisconsin. That's just one Ohioan's opinion, though. Thanks for reading.

Versatile and durable

By Todd

from Alliance, NE

The Veterans Cemetery I work at owns 2 of these machines. The swiveling front wheels make it very easy to maneuver, and the speed adjustment makes it easy for any of my staff to operate the mowers comfortably. The overall features and construction are very high quality. We have had a couple of issues losing the keepers from the height adjustmant pins on the front wheels, but overall are very happy with the performance of these mowers. After 2 years using them, I am impressed enough that when my home mower finally wears out, I am planning on getting one of these for myself.

Won't buy again

By Andy

from Pittsboro, NC

I bought an ariens because the snowblower I had was great and I heard good things about the brand. I now live in the South and am mowing zoysia grass. I have the Kawasaki engine. The engine is very hard to start. I've already had to replace a bearing in a rear wheel (under warranty). I'm also disappointed in the mulching ability. Also, this mower is much heavier than most others. It wouldn't be a big deal (it's self propel) but it barely hauls itself through the grass. Let's just say I'm in much better shape after buying this mower. The swivel wheels are gimmicky and you wouldn't need them except the mower is so heavy it is nice to have them-just as long as you have no hills in your yard. If you do, you'll be fighting the mower and the wheel lock on it is useless. It needs to lock both wheels. Oh, and the self propel speed selector sticks. I had to jimmy it to get it to work. I'm pretty surprised with all the positive reviews here. I hope it's not a case of "I just dropped way to much on this mower, I can't possibly not like it." I've already tried selling it to buy something else but I can't get any money for it. Looks like I'm stuck with it.


Great mower will built.

By William

from East Liverpool, Ohio

This mower is the best that I ever had and will tell all about how well it works. I should have got it sooner to save me alot of stress and work cutting my lawn. Hope to use it for a long time and how it is built I think it will be so.
