Ariens started with Henry Ariens and his three sons in 1933 with tillers and have expanded their line since then.
Like most manufacturers Ariens equipment names are just common advertising names and not actual identification needed for specific parts. Ariens uses a model and serial number system to identify their products. These numbers are located on a sticker attached to various places depending on the equipment. Ariens has a model number identification document that goes over their numbering system and locations.
Ariens uses various engine manufacturers for their equipment including Briggs & Stratton, Honda, Kawasaki, LCT, and Subaru. Engine manufacturers have their own model and parts systems. For more information check our pages for an equipment's engine manufacturer.
