The USA is a country built upon consumerism and respect for the customer, so American companies (like Ariens) know that nothing but the best service will do. When it comes to lawn maintenance, for example, the key is creating machines which provide top quality results and long-lasting performance with the minimum of hassle. This is why Ariens’ Razor series of walk-behind mowers is designed to offer optimal user-friendliness at all times, with the Razor E-Start sitting at the glittering pinnacle of this particular mountain of consumer convenience.
Crafted and assembled in the USA, the Razor E-Start is powered via a hardworking 175cc Subaru four-stroke petrol engine with a cast iron cylinder sleeve for reassuring dependability. This power is then channelled into the Razor E-Start’s variable speed rear wheel drive self-propulsion system; offering a maximum forward speed of 3.2mph, this system makes mowing nigh on effortless even on sloped ground and provides complete control as you work. The combination of this drive system and a 53cm (21”) cutting width means that the Ariens Razor E-Start is perfect for use on medium to large lawns, mowing even extensive areas of grass quickly and efficiently. Similarly handy in this respect is the inclusion of a high capacity 1 litre fuel tank which provides enough run time to tackle most domestic lawns without having to stop and refuel, while the electronic ignition system (from which the E-Start gets its name) means that getting your mower up and running is as easy as flicking a switch.
To complement this power and convenience the Razor E-Start also features Ariens’ clever 3-in-1 cutting system for outstanding versatility. This means that you can quickly select a cutting mode to suit your particular requirements, with traditional cut and collection providing a brilliantly tidy finish and the rear-discharge mode perfect for tackling larger lawns and longer grass quickly and efficiently. The mulching mode, meanwhile, provides outstanding collection-free mowing along with a pleasingly neat finish; this is because mulching retains the clippings in the mower’s cutting chamber for longer so that they are reduced to tiny particles before being discharged. These mulched clippings then break down and fertilise your lawn by returning vital moisture and nutrients to the soil, thereby boosting the long term health of your grass.
Whichever cutting mode you use, however, you will appreciate the benefits of Ariens’ deep domed deck design, which maximises air flow for a superior cut. Quality results are further ensured by the Razor E-Start’s centralised cutting height adjustment system, which offers five settings ranging from 2.5cm – 10.2cm for effective cutting in a wide variety of grass conditions. And to make sure that you can always work in comfort Ariens has also included a Rite-Hite™ handlebar, offering three mowing positions and two storage positions for unbeatable convenience both during operation and while your mower is tucked neatly away in the garden shed. All of this is topped off by the Razor E-Start’s remarkable toughness, with a stamped steel cutting deck providing resistance against corrosion and impact damage while further underlining the quality of build present throughout the design of this magnificent machine. Moreover, to further ensure complete satisfaction Ariens also offers a three year limited consumer warranty with every machine, so even the most demanding gardener can rest assured of many years of superb grass cutting results.
