    I don't know about all that "Swedish-engineered" stuff. The last time I checked Yazoo/Kees was in Beatrice, NE. Husqvarna does own Y/K but on the other hand Husqvarna is owned by Electrolux. Some of the other names under Electrolux are Bluebird, Poulan and Weedeater.
  4. 300 years combind???????????

    BTW GW wasn't born yet 300 years ago.

    How would I find a dealer? Your website Dealer Locator section doesn't work for me.

    I believe they started making guns and sewing machines before what they make today.

    I don't know about the other stuff, but I raced their motorcycles back in the early 70's.

    Yes the Husqvarna Company has been around for 300 years. They obviously have not been making ZTRs for 300 years. The company's products have included guns, chainsaws, motorcycles, sowing machines, mowers, trimmers, blowers etc.
