Default Ariens 34'' Walkbehind

Does or has anyone ever considered using the Ariens 34'' Walkbehind...like most starting out, I am on a budget. So for the price and for being a walkbehind, I don't think you can really beat this. Please offer some feed back.
Thanks.

I don't have one, but I have used one in the past. From what I remember it ran nicely, but the crank bends eaisly.

let me rephraise that:

The crank bends eaisier than other mowers.

I think it looks like a good buy. Just keep in mind its not exactly a commercial mower, but with good maintenance, I don't think you'll have a problem. Just look at used "big name" brands and see what $1400 gets you. Plus, its new!

He has a good point there.......

If you're just starting out, i'd say go for it.
