New Mower

Well, last night, i asked dad to take my to home depot to look around since i hadn't been in awhile. Well, went to tools first, then went right to the outdoor and garden section. My dad was already there. This is where i buy my honda WBs. Well, we saw they had last years models for sale, big savings!! Well, went in not expecting to buy anything, walked out with a $500 mower that i got for $350!! Honda 3speed quadracut, bag, and full 2 year warranty!! Couldn't believe it, mom wasn't too happy, so if any of you guys have or are interested in Honda WBs that are the homeowner ones, look at your home depot now, theyll probably have them. They may be homeowner, but, they last, i have one that is on its 8th year and another that is on its 6th! So, ill put up some pics later, i still cant believe i just got a new mower in the middle of the winter!!!

Yep, i did the same thing but with a John deere tractor. I saved 2000 on it and got it for 999.99. It was the best model they carry and i got it so cheap because it was a floor model. Talk about a good deal. Comes with the warrenty and everything. Im not using it for the business but for the house in pennsylvania. I cant wait for the snowblowers to go onsale this year. I went to the depot by me and the wholeeee yard outside is filled with the orange ariens snowblowers.

Oh ya, another thing, found out that HD is only carrying two JD models this year, and they are smaller than the ones they previously carried. Just to let you know

Those are good little mowers. $350 is a steal and so what if it is not classified as commercial. What matters is how they do the job, how they last and how cost effective they are. I'm not all that impressed with the commercial 21's anyways.

I guess I will have to take a ride to the depot. I never really use a 21 much but it wouldn't hurt to pick up a new one at that price for a honda. I was thinking the next one would be a Honda HRX or a Cub maybe. I've though about those with the caster wheels too.

Anyways, does the Depot sell the HRX? I never really go there...
