    Me too. I pulled the trigger on a new Super Z. Looked at many mowers they all had great finance rates. 0% is hard to beat.

    McCoys will have a sale in early March and that is the best time to buy equipment and handhelds. It is a huge event with many vendors and free food across two days.

    December is actually a good time to buy from a larger company because the salesman are usually trying to push hard on deals to pump up the end of the year sales.

    Best time to negotiate

    If you buy in december it will give you a nice write off for tax purposes. I met with my CPA last week.
