    I have neever hear this and think he is telling me that just to make me think that exmarks are the same basic thing as toros, be I just have never hear of anything linking the two.

    I have just never heard of that, I thought they were seperate companys, maybe he is right. If so, which is the better machine exmark or toro, I am new to the high end home market, I have always just used scags and done larger commercial, and larger home's, I am now finding alot better money in the more detailed high end homes.

    exmark makes the toro, same machine, I don't know if they own exmark or just have a large stake in the company, I know exmark was struggling a little and toro needed a better z so it only made sense to bail out exxmark and rebadge with the toro name.

    Not all the way true. While they are basically the same machine, spindals & blades are not interchangeable.

    It is true I have been to the plant and seen with my own eyes where they are built and both mowers come off the same assembly line

    They may build 50 of one then 50 of the other but you get the point lol
