If your lawn is anything like ours, it’s in dire need of mowing after all of this rain. I think ours grew an inch today alone! Is your mower up to the task of taming your grass? If not, you’ll want to head on over to Barrington’s Ace Hardware during Toro days – going on now through May 18th – to find the lawnmower that’s right for you at an exceptional price. And while you’re there, don’t forget to stock up on annuals and vegetables to get your garden growing!
Barrington Ace owner John Brown says that “Toro is a 102 year-old company, with a solid reputation built on their mowers’ durability and effectiveness. We sell them because we believe they’re the best mowers on the market for our customer’s needs.”
The Toro Days promotion only happens once per year, and it’s the perfect time to replace your old mower at $25-$50 off, and get a special 3-year warranty offered only during the sale. Whether you have a smaller yard in the Village or an expansive lawn in Barrington Hills (or somewhere in between), Ace has a Toro mower that will get the job done.
I talked with local Toro rep, Ron Freund, to get the scoop on the company’s current models and special features. Ron highly recommends Toro mowers that offer the Personal Pace® Self Propel System, which matches the user’s natural pace. “Just lean into the mower and walk as you normally would, and it adjusts to your pace,” Ron says. “You can be comfortable instead of jogging to keep up or walking too slowly.”
Toro also offers several models featuring SmartStow™ space saving technology, which allows mowers to be stored upright without any leaks or spills – a boon for those of us with garage storage issues! Simply turn a dial and flip the handle.
One decision you’ll have to make when shopping for a mower is whether to opt for steel or aluminum construction. Mowers with steel decks tend to come with smaller price tags, but aluminum decks are super durable – often lasting 15 to 20 years versus 7 to 8 years for steel. Toro Days is a perfect time to stretch your budget a bit and upgrade your purchase.
You’ll also have to choose the size of your mower, which will depend on the size of your lawn and how fast you’d like to get the job done. While 22-inch decks are the most common, Toro also offers a TimeMaster 30-inch Personal Pace mower that uses a Dual-Force cutting system and Toro Atomic blades cut grass to a super fine mulch. And the Super Recycler ensures that your clippings are mulched very finely, so that they break down quickly and are beneficial to your lawn’s health.
Still not sure which mower’s right for you? Stop in to Ace anytime for helpful advice, or use Toro’s product selector tool to find the best fit. When you head over to buy your mower, you’ll be wowed by the beautiful plants Ace has flanking their front walkway. Now is the perfect time to fill your planters, purchase some hanging baskets and buy some veggies for your garden!
Ace has great deals on single plants – from $1.99 to $3.99 per plant for flats, to $24.99 for filled planters. Time to add some color to your newly-mowed landscape!
We gnome you’ll be heading over to Ace soon – happy shopping!
