For the past couple of days I’ve been looking for a ride-on mower.
I put out the word to a couple friends a couple of days ago that I was in the market for a used mower in the under $500 range. Early yesterday morning while walking her dog my friend saw a Honda ride-on mower.
After receiving texts with photos of the mower and the seller’s phone number, Charlie called and found the price was $600 or best offer. The mower has a double bagging system which should work great for our leaved in autumn.
I did a little research and realized the mower was probably worth half of the quoted price.
We drove over to see it and while we didn’t want to offend the nice man who was selling the mower, Charlie offered $300.
We said our top price is $350. The owner said he couldn’t go below $450 so we thanked him and went home.
Later Charlie got a phone call and the owner said he would take $350. We stopped at the bank to get cash and returned to pick up the mower.
Charlie drove it about 10 blocks down to our friend’s storage shed.
It will rest there until we can convince her brother to drive it to our house in his truck.
I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the mower because our grass is getting long.
Who mows at your house?
