    All the local Lowes and Home Depots in RI and nearby Mass area are selling off their snowblower stock for 50% off, may go even lower $$$. :dizzy:

    also at Lowes, the Snow Bear Plows were going for $850.00 on sale, regularly $1200.00

    I went to Home Depot today and bought a Ariens 7524 blower for $379.00 +tax. Can't beat that. 50% off. They were selling like crazy.

    I really think that happens every year because the need to make room for the spring items...

    Not exactly, As Camland says they DO do this every year. It's cheaper than sending them back or storing them until next winter. There is no reflection on the winter.

    True, but I don't think they start slashing prices until later, technically this is still mid-winter. Also when they start slashing they usually don't have 80% of their inventory still remaining. I'm going to check it out. I've got a 5hp and a 9hp, but I'd like to add a lightweight single stage, to hopefully replace my shovel 80% of the time.

    Wonder if they will cancel sale when they see snow in the forecast for this weekend and then maybe next weekend also. The first one looks like a good one!

    I have about 9 blowers already but for a few hundred each for new ones I might just add a few more. I could sell my ones that are 3 years old and replace them with new ones and maybe wind up with no out of pocket outlay!

    I picked up two Ariens 9hp machines for $500 each and 2 8hp Yard Machines for $350 each. They have a monster 32" 13hp Ariens for $890 that I am thinking about, but it is really BIG! Any body interested in some "slightly used" blowers in the $100-$200 range? PM me...

    Just picked a Toro 3.5 horse electric start for $199.00. I had bought one in December for $400.00. Never hurts to get a good deal to make your day a little brighter.:D

    Home Depot sale

    I went to the local Home Depot last night and picked up a Honda HS520 single stage for $374.00 They claimed it was 50% off, but I don't think so. I also hope it eliminates the majority of my shoveling. Grizzly

    Grizzly, They had one of those hondas left at the home depot by me last night marked down to 325 bucks. I dont need anymore machines but was going to grab it just because it was so cheap. I asked them to hold it while I went home to get my truck....unfortunatly something came up and i wasnt able to go back untill this morning. Of course it was gone.......

    I did get an Ariens 9Hp last year for 500 dollars also in FEB there.

    I think they are right, those single stage hondas are expensive. Dad wants to go buy one of them monster 23/13 ariens for $850 since our HDs have them. Anyone here that cuts grass, check your HD for last years models that they kept over the winter. I got a really good deal on one i bought two weeks ago!

    Hey MCW...

    I am dying to get the 13hp too! My local Home Depot has 2. They are monsters! The only thing holding me back is that they might be too wide to fit on the ramp on the back of my truck. let me know if your Pop gets one...

    Could you send me a pic or two of the ones you've got for $100-200 range.
    I'm not in immediate need for one, but I think I would possibly pick up another for a backup.

    I was at home depot yesterday, they were selling $1000 ariens machines for $499 cash & carry. They sold the last 13 they had in 6 hours.
