    In a interview it was asked of the President of Husqvarna if they were going to buy Toro and the response was something like this. "Toro would be a perfect fit for Husqvarna however at this time there is no plans for it." Husqvarna has some deep pockets and could afford to buy out Toro but personally I dont' see it happening. This rumor surfaces about every 6-8 months, think it is just people speculating and it does provide some interesting gossip to pass around.

    You have to remember that Husqvarna has some deep pockets as well. They are owned my Electrolux that manufacture lots of other things. They would probably just buy the lawn care side of things. Leaving the other stuff like the reel mowers and dingos to Toro. ZTR's make up a very small piece of Toro's pie.

    I heard that the talk is on the table and they have the $$ but there is no urgency at this time to seriously consider the aquisition. Who knows I think their focusing their interest on other things at this time. This topic has been debated on multiple threads I have read. Still nothing new on it.

    All this talk of Husky buying Toro and great dane going under makes me want to buy Wright products.
    Heres a question....would Husky's new line of mowers be called "Horo's"?
