I was talking to another LCO today he said that Exmark is made by Snapper. Is this true? I thougt that Exmark manufactured their own product. If they are Snapper then who are the the only companies that manufacture their own equipment? There must not be many.

Walker n Dixie Chopper make their own ( there's others I'm Sure)

Exmark is a division of Toro
http://www.toro.com/companyinfo/01annual/ceoletter1.html

All 3 are Excellent ZTR's ... can't say for Toro as I have never owned anything over a 21 ...which was a great push mower .... but we don't use em anymore ;->

Toro does own Exmark but Exmark is operated as a seperate entity.

Some companies that make their own mowers are:

Exmark
Dixie Chopper
Walker
Gravely
Encore
Rich
Hustler
Wright

and about 3 dozen others.

Exmark is a divison of Toro...wholly owned by Toro...but run completely separate from them. Kind of like when Chrysler bought out Jaguear...BTW, does Chrysler they still own Jag?

I dont know if they still own Jag. Several years ago they bought out Lamborghini, but they still produce their own cars, not Chrysler.

Ford owns Jaguar. True! Ford owns Jag, Ferrari, Mazda, and a couple others I believe.

Exmark makes their own equipment. Snapper has nothing to do with eXmark. Tell the other LCO he doesn't have a clue.;)

Lamborgini is NOT owned by chrysler. It is however owned by VW. Ford also owns Landrover now.

Thank all of you for the input. I really don't care who makes what as long as it gets the job done and parts are available when I need them. I just think it is kind of interesting.
