At my dealer this moring (Toro and Great ane dealer) and I saw an exmark Lazer Hp lC, Xp (your probably thinking "big deal" but we don't have exmark down here) So I had a chat to him about it and he told me that Toro bought out Exmark and the new Toro with the Turbo force deck is just an exmark with a Toro badge. He also told me Exmark is suing Kubota for using the same deck design as theirs on their new "Pro Cut" Kubota decks. Has anybody else heard these things? It's news to me..................Just thought some of you might be intrested. BTW: those diesel LC exmarks look like their too low to the ground at the rear.
