are Ariens walk behind mowers good?

Before I get reminded this is a snowblower forum..I was just wondering how many of you own other Ariens products,especially Ariens lawnmower? This spring I plan on purchasing a new lawnmower,and I'm interested in a Ariens.I own a 8526 Ariens snowblower which I'm very pleased with the quality,and reliability, just wondering if their walk behind mowers are just as good?

All I have to bring to this party is:

I grew up with an Ariens rider. A Manorway to be specific. That thing ran for 20+ years, and she finally tired out. Dad replaced it with another Ariens rider, but did not fair as well as that one, I think, lasted 10 years. Now he's onto a Snapper rider,,,,,,,,, I think

As an adult, I went with Deere, as that better suited my needs. 16 years on this rider thus far, and no signs of slowing down either.

Sorry Mary Lyn. In winter I bleed orange. Summer I bleed green

2014 Ariens Deluxe 30 #921032 w/Armor skids, LED's, Hand warmers.
2015 Ariens Path Pro SS-21 # 938033
2010 Toro 1800 Power curve (electric, for the deck)

i think this is a good question. being in the city most need a walk behind mower and while there are toro mowers on CL most seem to be craftsman, i'm still using a 14 / 15 year old toro 6.5hp mower
