    I was talking to another LCO today he said that Exmark is made by Snapper. Is this true? I thougt that Exmark manufactured their own product. If they are Snapper then who are the the only companies that manufacture their own equipment? There must not be many.

    Walker n Dixie Chopper make their own ( there's others I'm Sure)

    Exmark is a division of Toro

    All 3 are Excellent ZTR's ... can't say for Toro as I have never owned anything over a 21 ...which was a great push mower .... but we don't use em anymore ;->

    Toro does own Exmark but Exmark is operated as a seperate entity.

    Some companies that make their own mowers are:

    Exmark
    Dixie Chopper
    Walker
    Gravely
    Encore
    Rich
    Hustler
    Wright

    and about 3 dozen others.

    Exmark is a divison of Toro...wholly owned by Toro...but run completely separate from them. Kind of like when Chrysler bought out Jaguear...BTW, does Chrysler they still own Jag?

    I dont know if they still own Jag. Several years ago they bought out Lamborghini, but they still produce their own cars, not Chrysler.

    True! Ford owns Jag, Ferrari, Mazda, and a couple others I believe.

    Exmark makes their own equipment. Snapper has nothing to do with eXmark. Tell the other LCO he doesn't have a clue.;)

    Lamborgini is NOT owned by chrysler. It is however owned by VW. Ford also owns Landrover now.
