Anyone have a Home Depot coupon?

I have a 10% off anything coupon from Lowes...but...I need to buy something rather big, from Home Depot, and could use an "anything" type coupon, or a coupon off a mower if anyone has one. Willing to trade that Lowes coupon if anyone's interested. Unfortunately Lowes doesn't carry the brand I'm looking for.

And in case anyone would like to mention...yes, bought a push mower for some edging from Butch, and he was a TON of help, though looking for a quality zero turn and not sure he'll have one (we'll see though, just sent him a PM).

Thanks in advance for any help.

HD doesn't have coupons like that. I have a ~$500 giftcard I'd take $475 for (5% off).

And if it's a JD, Toro, cub cadet mower your are looking for those coupons list them as excluded.

ftr the mowers they sell at the big boxes are entry level at best. Go to a dealer for a quality mower.

Checkout that small dealer over by you on ogden.

Thanks for the info. Was there last week picking up a chain saw blade. They've got pretty much all commercial grade zero turn mowers. I need something residential. I've got an acre, but it's not square. It's got a bunch of nooks and crannies, plus a bunch of trees. So with the old mower I was doing a lot of forward and reverse. Would be MUCH easier with a zero turn...but again not specifically needing a commercial series since I'll be doing 1 lawn per week (vs. 50 lawns a month).

Thus, even though the big box are selling entry levels...I think they're my best bet. That Toro had some good reviews on their site plus online...so I think it'll be ok. I also like that it has a 3 year warranty, just in case.

home depot sends out a coupon if you have a credit card with them. But i don't think they have a percentage. I think it was just 10 dollars off??

I had a similar decision to make about 5 years ago and went w a JD X304. It's not commercial but heavier duty than the entry level stuff at HD. It's 4 wheel steer and while not 0 degrees it has a very tight cut pattern.

A couple caveats on the ZTs. More moving parts means more maintenance and more things to break. Some also have dual transmissions which complicates everything further.

Also if you have any slope the ZTs do not track well and are prone to flip over. They cannot tow a small cart, detatcher, etc or push a plow. With an acre and as cheap as you are I know you will be doing this yourself and saving us from future threads on these topics.

Kipps prices are high on most everything. If it is only a acre i would look at a rider like mentioned before. ZT's are more commercial use. (Maintance is simple on a good one.)
There is also Russo's in Naperville and Schiller Park. (Advoid Naperville for service, many problems there. Just see butch for service) Also the Schiller Park location has used equipment sometimes.

Go to the post office and get one of the address change packs. I think there's a 10% off one in there. Also, negotiate with the sales person. We got about 10% off everything we bought the last time we went (weber, patio set, etc).

There are coupon codes right now for a toro sale and free shipping, etc., but I don't know which mower you're looking for.

Russo is used though isnt it?....never been there, place looks huge and I thought they are mostly serving commercial?

I almost can guarantee that the HD coupon will exclude all the name brand riding mowers.

Thanks for all the input folks.

As an update. Went through Home Depot. Only 2 units they could find, both near me. Had some trouble with them selling it to me (couldn't get it to start, and I didn't want to take it home unless it did). Ended up being a simple issue of not following the proper starting procedures (they don't have the manual for it). Ended up having to go back to pick it up, the manager gave me a nice discount for my troubles.

Got the Toro, great machines. Awesome reviews. Apparently it's a commercially built mower for residential use (not specifically marketed to commercial). This is what makes it a great deal. The others are built cheaper than they're commercial brothers, but not this one. I'm mean it's no FULL OUT commercial unit, but its solid compared to the others I looked at. For the most part the resid/comm use the same engines, just the fit/finish is better on the commercial (like welded decks, etc).

Did my lawn in approximately 50% of the time it used to take. It mows fast. Took me a while to get used to the zero turn, however once I've got a solid grasp for it, I think I can cut the time down to 30% of the original mowing time. Well worth the money vs. a standard tractor. As with many things...should have bought/done it years ago.

Can't make a solid review just yet as I've only used it once, but so far so good.
