According to the Altoz rep when he was at Retrodog's the first time (I was there getting some stuff fixed cuz it was raining): They had some factory space with equipment no longer being used so they decided to give mower manufacturing a try.

I would think they will go out of business pretty quick if they don't bring the prices down to reality.

The same presses, punches and welders used to make boilers can be used to make a variety of different items.

Metalcraft of Mayville, who manufactures Scag mowers, also manufactures tons of other stuff for construction, mining, forestry, military etc...

Just an update, changed the baffling up a little bit and no more getting dirty from the front! I still see a little blow out, but not any more than the other mowers I run. I can still get a little grass on the front of the deck when I am mowing slow, but when I speed things up I don't see as bad. Overall nice ride. I still can't believe the quality of each part on this thing!
I did hear from the commercial guy with the 61", he absolutely loves his no complaints at all he said so far, in fact its helped him land some extra contracts as he is known as the guy with the cool mower....

Makes perfect sense to me Richard.

A company that made boilers is now manufacturing a line of "HOT" looking mowers!!

Sorry, I couldn't resist.....I'm so ashamed....

Lol at the banter. I like the mowers but going into the commercial ztr biz seems like you would be better off taking that cash to the casino. IMO.
