Ariens Petrol Lawn Edger | 986501

  • Product Details

    The finishing touch on any area of lawn is a tidy border of the sort only achievable with a powered edger. Many domestic gardeners will attempt to do this with a stick edger or an edger attachment for another tool, but commercial users and anyone who takes real pride in their lawn will certainly benefit from the power and precision offered by Ariens’ three-wheeled edger. This is because a wheeled edger allows you to tackle even the largest lawns and other grassed areas with ease, tidying borders and edges quickly and efficiently while always producing a professional quality finish.

    Powered by a hardworking 169cc Subaru four-stroke engine, the Ariens wheeled edger boasts a wide array of clever features to make it easier than ever to achieve a truly pristine edge on any lawn. The machine’s 22.8cm (9”) edging blade, for example, is fitted to a pivoting cutting head with 110º of articulation, delivering the versatility to cut, trim, bevel and edge nearly any landscape with just one machine. Further versatility is offered via the four working height positions, along with a laterally adjustable front wheel which can be easily adapted to suit the situation at hand. The adjustable wheel also combines with the edger’s practical curb hop feature, allowing you to maintain perfect balance even when the rear wheel has been lifted vertically for edging along curbs.

    Ease of use is also important of course, especially if you are a contractor working long hours on extensive grassed areas. Happily the Ariens edger obliges on this count too, with an ergonomic T-handle designed to optimise operator comfort and control. Along with the high capacity 2.4 litre fuel tank (included to increase run time and thus reduce the frequency of fuel stops) and an easy-access recoil starter (designed for quick ignition every time) this makes using the Ariens edger intuitive and stress-free, even over prolonged periods. The machine’s all steel construction, meanwhile, ensures unrivalled durability and resistance to impact damage, making it perfect for even the most challenging commercial applications. And with a three year limited consumer warranty also included as standard, investing in the Ariens edger will mean that you can rest completely assured of long lasting performance, exceptional reliability and enviably clean borders on your lawn.

    About Ariens
    The Ariens story is a true example of the American Dream. When times got tough during the Great Depression, Henry Ariens and his three sons – Steve, Leon and Francis – had to close their Brillian based iron works. However, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this was merely a new beginning for the Ariens men, and with a $1,500 loan borrowed against Henry's life insurance policy and another $1,500 raised by selling shares of stock to a family member, the four men got back to work.

    The Ariens Company as we know it nowadays began in 1933, when Henry and the boys developed the first American-made rotary tiller and conducted a campaign to teach commercial growers, nurserymen and landscapers how the new Ariens Model A Tiller worked. Over the next two decades the Ariens Company became an established player in the lawn and garden market, and even won a U.S. Army Ordinance Award for crisis manufacturing during World War II. When Henry Ariens died in 1956 his sons took over the company and continued their father’s legacy by growing the business further and introducing a variety of new products, including the machine for which Ariens is best known: the Sno-Thro®.

    Today, Ariens’ Sno-Thro® is the leading snow-thrower brand worldwide with distribution in the US, Canada and Europe. As well as this, Ariens is now well known for producing a wide range of high quality gardening and lawn maintenance products ideal for domestic and commercial use, including their excellent lawn tractors and walk behind mowers, all of which are manufactured with the same drive for durability which motivated Henry Ariens back in his garage in 1933. Built to be tough but easy to operate, these heavy duty steel machines are engineered with commercial-grade cast iron gear cases and large intake components which set the standard for reliability and mean that Ariens products are often even passed down from one generation to the next.

    One would hope that Henry Ariens would have appreciated seeing Ariens machines being used by many generations of the same family, reflecting the way in which the Ariens Company itself has been stewarded by successive generations of Ariens, all striving to live up to Henry’s pioneering work. This commitment to the company’s humble origins is reflected in Ariens’ five Company Core Values: Be Honest, Be Fair, Keep Our Commitments, Respect the Individual and Encourage Intellectual Curiosity. As such you can always be confident of superb performance and dependability with an Ariens machine, even when dealing with the very toughest horticultural work.
