    Check the websites of the companies and see if any are advertising good financing such as 6 months no intrest or payments or contact the dealers in your area

    Try and find a used one through an estate sale. Out here guys will buy nice mowers sometimes when they are really to old to do it anymore and think it will do the job better without walking.(Which they can provided you can still see and have good reaction times) Anyway they get put into rest homes or the guys pass away within just a few years of getting one and their sposes don't really know what they're worth. I know a guy that buys all kinds of stuff this way. Nice set of Hogan golf clubs, a car that was only a year or two old, furnature etc. It's an option if you're willing to spend some time looking.
