Riding Lawn Mower

314 1,029 November 13, 2017 at 09:40 AM
Have a friend who is special needs and wants to get on a riding lawn mower to earn money instead of walk-behind mower. Haven't seen a single thread on SD for this and wondering if they're ever clearanced by Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Any experience shopping for a deal on these? TIA Peace

I don't know (nor do I need to know) what the special needs are, but consider maintenance. A rider is a bit tougher to maintain and also transport if this isn't all in one neighborhood.

I have on occasion seen Lowe's/HD posts here, but they are a bit rare. I see them marked down in person frequently.

See if you have something like this [mnhomeoutlet.com] in your area. The one near me seems to be all HD stuff. Some great deals if you can wade through the crap.

I second the whole I wouldn't want to commute this thing around on a trailer all over the place but Sears is having a deal on one of theirs.

The thing about riding mowers is everyone has an opinion. Personally I like Sears because they offer easier service where I live and I'd rather buy a cheaper mower say every 10 years than an expensive one every 20. Saves me $ in the long run. It also boils down to how much you have to mow to see what makes sense. If for example he's gonna be mowing a bunch of 5 acre plots I would not recommend the linked mower whatsoever!

Depending on where you live you may be at the right buying time or it may have passed you by.

Now, if you're talking about actual commercial grade riding mowers than I don't have a clue but I suspect you won't be getting anywhere near the % off you'd be able to get a residential one for.

Thanks both of you for your contributions, repped. Great timing on the Sears riding mower, passed that deal along.
