There are a growing number of people for whom the benefits of a Zero-turn mower have become increasingly evident. If you consider you can cut a lawn in half the time without sacrificing the quality of the cut there is a strong persuasion to take a look at one, especially if you have a sizeable area to mow.
The IKON-X Zero-turn mower is built by Ariens Company, a family owned brand that has a reputation for engineering excellence. That is reflected in this tough and durable mower which is built with a fully fabricated, heavy-duty tubular steel frame. What’s more it includes a wide range of commercial quality features but at an affordable price for homeowners and semi-professionals.
What makes it so fast? The IKON-X doesn’t have the conventional steering system found on a lawn tractor, it’s driven and steered by the rear wheels via an independent transmission. It is surprisingly easy to drive, with levers for brake and steer and the ability to spin on the spot. At the end of the mowing row you can turn it 180º in its own footprint and begin the next pass. A few minutes of practice and this becomes second nature, cutting easily and precisely while negotiating around obstacles such as flower beds, trees and garden ornaments. The IKON-X is comfortable too, with an adjustable high-back seat which includes arm rests and there’s a vibration reducing floor mat.
The commercial quality cutter deck is fabricated from 10-guage steel, which will give it the durability of professional grade equipment, and the 13 cutting heights are effortlessly adjusted by a dial on the control panel. Powered by a premium Kawasaki 726cc engine you have the assurance of reliability coupled with the Ariens promise of a machine built to exceed customer expectations.
The IKON-X is available in two models: IKON-X 42 with a 107cm (42”) cutter deck and the IKON-X 52 with a 132cm (52”) deck. Priced to suit homeowners and semi-professional gardeners, the Zero-turn comes with a three year consumer warranty or 90 days for commercial operators. Have a turn on one and see the benefits for yourself.
