Exmark history

Just curious what is the story behind the best mower company in the industry? Stuff like when the company was started and where and there early mowers,,,,,,, I know what your think odd post but before I bought my 1st Exmark in 2001 I ahd never even heard of the Exmark lawn mower Company , there were no dealers in my area and I was fully aware of the other big name brands even if there was no local dealer , but no dealers or even talk of Exmark......... btw I bought my Lazer on impulse I had gone to my Ransomes dealer to buy a new compact Z and was surprise to find that he drop the Ransomes line and took on this new Exmark line, had no clue about the unit just bought it cause thats what my dealer switched to...........

A happy Exmark owner
