The Ariens IKON-X 42" 915220 is a solid mower good for residential or smaller yards. For a riding mower, it can easily navigate through tight and tricky areas. A USA made product, it feels durable and the deck doesn't shake around like some other brands. But with only a 42" deck it's not a good fit for larger yards, and one reviewer said they had to mow the grass several times to get a good cut.
