Pretty sure a honda mower is a Honda but the do sell small engines.

I know MTD did and I presume still does make mowers for some companies.

That is all I know but wanted to subscribe

It changes all the time.

Toro owns Exmark, both offer a machine that the same as the 3wheel Walker (dont know who makes it)

Briggs and Stratton bought out Snapper, Dihatsu makes the 2cyl Briggs motor.

Yanmar makes engines for John Deere tractors, Kubota sells engines to all equiptment Manifacutres.

I bought a waterpump the other day from autozone and it was mande in USA, with foreign parts.

Honda, Can AM and Polaris make their own machines. Don't know about the rest. I have owned two can am four wheelers (Renegade and max 800s) and love them but when I purchase a SxS it Will be a Polaris.

I think Kubota makes most of their own engines, and Bobcat uses them some also.

I dont know where they are made, its likley China or India. For the most part Farm tractors are all made over seas, they put the fenders on here and call them made in the USA.

Are you wanting a side by side or a compact utility vehicle?

Love my Rhino...Guess it depends on what you're looking for. Kawasali Mule is a workhorse, but governed to 25 mph... RZR will get you there in a hurry, but not much use when working (IMO)... Rhino falls somewhere in the middle.

Side by side(Polaris RZR, Yamaha Rhino) is more for recreational activities, while a utility vehicle(Kubota RTV, Kawasaki Mule, JD Gator) are more for work/farm duty.
