For residential cutters, Ariens Company also introduced two 21-inch residential walk-behind mowers — the Ariens Razor and Gravely XD3 — with several user-friendly features, including a Rite Hite handle bar single-point height adjustment. Operators can adjust the height of the Rite Hite handle bar quickly and easily while standing in the operating position, and they can fold the handle bar down or into an upright position for easier, more compact storage.

For commercial cutters, Ariens Company introduced the Pro-Turn Series of mowers for those landscape contractors looking for a fully commercial mower at an opening price point. It also expanded its Gravely Pro-Turn 400 Series of commercial mowers from two fuel choices (gasoline and diesel) to three with the introduction of the 460 and 472 LP propane models. The Pro-Turn 400 LP models have a Kawasaki FX850V EnviroGard-converted engine, specifically designed for propane. Based on feedback from landscape contractors, Ariens also made some enhancements to its Pro-Stance stand-on mower, which was introduced in the spring, so that it can now be used as a walk-behind mower as well. Gravely also announced improvements to its commercial X-Factor deck, such as improved spindles, a new chute profile, an enlarged discharge opening and standard baffles.
