Mowers and Trimmers on National tv

Has anyone else noticed that Exmark and Echo have gone to national advertising?They arent affiliated in any way and they are seperate commercials. On our local tv channels stihl has a promo for home owner equipment at times
Do other people in other parts of the us see other equipment advertised? just curious

i saw echo advertised recently on a home improvement channel.

IMO, commercials show they're desperate for business, which further more makes me believe echo is taking a dive. Just MO.

I've been seeing Exmark commercials for the first time. I don't think that seeing commercials means they are desperate, just that they are trying to increase their client base.

More home owners can buy the machines the pro's use. Before they may not even know they were available. I think this is a good thing...it will help the good companies continue to turn a profit!

I believe it could be a common advertising agent put out a good deal to these manufacturers. I've seen both the Echo and Exmark advertisements. Both look very similar with similar motives/wording.

I've seen them down here in Baltimore too.

(Cleanmaxx Brian) More home owners can buy the machines the pro's use.

Not only has my next door nieghbor asked about Emark mowers, but my girl friend's father has also, both of which use regular tractors from Home Depot and Sears. I didn't try to sell the mower to them, I just told them the positives of a ZTR over a regular lawn tractor. My neighbor hasn't bought one yet, but my girl friend's father went out that weekend and bought one. I'm sure the advertisements isn't hurting eaither company. Just my .02 cents. Later all!

I personally think Exmark hit one out of the park with that commercial! Most homeowners around here have never heard of that brand. So they are getting their name out to everyone, heck there are a lot of homeowners that enjoy quality equipment. Exmark made a first rate commercial in my books.
